    Hey Fellas,

    as some ppl might recognize, ive been around a lot in the last weeks.
    I have the equip to solo peerlesses, its flawless imho, except of my weapons, they lack a bit.
    My template is finished.

    But i even get my ass kicked by the bone deamon.
    Dont get me wrong i consider myself as a very decent uo player, i did champ spawns alone and some other though stuff with other chars.

    But it seems that i cant handle my Sampire [​IMG]

    I cant kill irk, he beats the [censored] out of me [​IMG]

    And i dont know why. Ive read post of ppl that have a lot less equip and seem to beat dreadhorn and stuff.

    Is it just because i use Fencing?
    Is it because i use War Forks ?

    I got 115 Swords stored in a soulstone, should i switch and burn my rest runic hammers on swords weapons?

    WHAT THE [censored] IM DOING WRONG?!?!?!?

    And dont tell me its practice, because i literally died around 300 times approaching irk.
    I usually try him like 5 times a day till im pissed and stop it.

    But that i even couldnt kill the bone deamon disappointed me too much.

    I am considering to buy a 120 swords, if its that better.

    Would be glad for some help. Especially in the Weapon choice.

    Or is there a good Sampire Player on Catskills, who would take me under his wing for a couple of hours? Maybe do dread with 2 player ?

    Thanks Fellas, for the help!

    Greetings
     
  2. Use Soul Seeker on Irk & make sure to Honor him. I was able to take him down fairly quickly on my second attempt this way. I don't think it really matters whether it's swords or fencing, but the weapon you use certainly does. I've learned that one the hard way.

    I still have 120 fencing switched in, you think its worth going swords and just have 115?!

    Edit:

    So you think its my weapon, hum.
    i got two more gold runics and a aga, should i continue to built warforks or you think leafblades or a 2handed are better?

  4. LOL, I'm sure there are quite a few that would rally against me being a mod, but thanks for the vote of support.

    Back to the topic, the weapon does make the difference. With Irk, along with Spite and Guile, using a weapon that is 100% physical will lead to nothing but frustration, and as with any weapon a Sampire uses, Stamina Leech, Mana Leech and SSI are must haves. You simply have to have these mods to fully utilize your template and mana pool. Honoring all opponents is the cardinal rule prior to entering into any high end combat so you get the massive damage hits for the leeching. Irk took me down like a sack of potatoes the first time I went up against him, and had me running through the desert like a girl (no offense ladies lol). The ONLY reason I wasn't able to take him is that I missed honoring him, so wasn't able to get the big hits going against him. Soul Seeker + Honor equals dead Irk. Be conservative of mana with him and his brothers, as their mana vampire spam just plain sucks, so you have to use what you manage to leech and keep sparingly. I found that it works pretty good if you can get a couple of corpsers near you, or even one of the bog thingamajigs, so that when you run out of mana, you can switch over to one of them for a couple of swings and get some quick leeching in, then switch back.

    Dreadhorn is a whole different story. I haven't been able to solo him yet, but then I didn't have my new axe at the time either, and I'm hoping it makes the difference.

    Since you have Fencing, try to find a leaf blade or UBWS swords wep with Cold, Fire or Poison damage and no physical. This will allow you do still do damage without having to cast Cons Wep.
     
  5. I'd offer help on Catskills, but my schedule this week prevents it (besides the fact that I'm in Europe and the times I play, most people are working). Still, if you ever see an Aneirin or Path (both samurai), I'd be glad to help out.

    Anyhow, my sampire, Aneirin, has the same trouble with Irk, Guile and Spite. No matter what happens, I can't seem to damage them, and they don't damage me much either. It turns into a long stale mate. After going through a lot of different weapons (I haven't tried Katrina's crook yet, maybe I should try that), I've decided that my problem is with my template (very high necromancy) and armor (darkwood) rather than my weapon, especially since my normal samurai, Path, doesn't even break a sweat against these guys.

    I've decided to try a new samurai, this time with Connor's template (much discussed in other threads) but with fencing instead of swords to see if that makes a difference. Then I can take advantage of the many fencing weapons I've found over time.

    I haven't managed to solo any of the peerless yet, but Aneirin has done well in groups against DH and Mel, but Travesty turns into an impossibility against a group with Aneirin in it. My latest project has been to try to get to Paroxysmus, but the killing of Putrifier has eluded me so far.

    I've solo'd IRK using a Darkened Sky, making sure to honor first. I've tried other weps, but Dark Sky seems to be what works for my template. It takes a while and lots of healing/evading, but have done it (to my amazement) several times.
     
  10. How do you get your mana?

    Natural regen rate, I have 70 mana to start with, so I seem to do okay in the mana dept. I use evasion and EoO, and I have enough mana regen to be able to cast it and the occasional Divine Fury to regen Stam. I really don't use any other spells requiring mana while fighting it. Dark Sky is 50 Cold, 50 Energy wep with 60% lightening. It does work good!

    Kith, did you mean your pvp ornate has 25ssi? Or 30? Sounds like a great axe nonetheless, I'm curious to see the actual mods.
