My Sampire always runs out of Mana

    What gives. I only have about 37 mana when full. I get into a fight, and if its protracted I always run out and am unable to cast LS. I EoO, honor, evade, CW, and then LS LS LS. And soon its gone. Whats wrong? My weapon even has 44 HML on it.

    thanks.

    Hmmm, i get that problem if i dont honour. I wouldnt say (although im fairly new sampire) you need to cast evasion at the start of the fight. I tend ot only cast if i REALLY need it.

    Do you have any LMC or MR in your suit??

    With a decent amount of LMC you LS only take about 3mana, if you have say 5MR that should replenish itself without leeching.
     
  3. While the general rule is to use Evasion as a last ditch effort to squeeze in a heal, against things like Miasma it does you good to hit Evasion at the beginning of the fight, especially if you don't have a slayer with SL & ML. It allows you to get a few levels of Perfection going to increase your damage before you start getting hit by it so you can heal through any damage you take. It's not a magic casting mob, so there's no harm in this particular situation to use Evasion at the outset.

    thanks guys.

    I have maybe 4 MR on my suit, no LMC tho. So is the rule of thumb, if you cant honor them (I have trouble sometimes targetting them before they rush me, to run and try again? I'd imagine so.

    Thanks again for the help.

    For honoring, it really depends on your opponent and if you have company.

    For example, if you have enemy of one and the right slayer weapon, you really don't NEED honor except for the luck bonus. But if you're just using a good sampire weapon, then you really need to honor your opponents. But sometimes it's just more convenient to kill one opponent then honor the next one, especially in low hit point mobs like the ML named monsters (Miasma, Coil, etc).

    Once I spend half an hour waiting for a Dark Father to regenerate a few hit points, only to be interrupted in my wait by a bard and her stinking energy vortexes. That fight didn't go well at all. She wasn't a good bard and quit after a few minutes, leaving me with a mess and an unhonored, half dead Dark Father.

    As I recall, I didn't finish it that day, choosing easier prey instead.

    Id say that all depends on the mob itself, if for example you are tryin to solo a df or other high end mob then i wouldnt even think about it without honour...id actually leave before i tried it!

    Lower end monsters like succubi can easily be taken without honour.
