ive recently returned to the game and started playing a character i was working on during my last return. the template is looking like 115 Swords 115 Bushido 115 Parry 105 Tactics 100 Anatomy 90 Healing 70 Chivalry i plan to adjust some numbers if i can get enough money for 120 swords, bushido, and parry. until then, though, ill have to stick with 115's. since returning to the game and browsing the forums a bit, it appears going sampire or an ABC archer are the only viable options. i do not want necromancy, so should i give up swords/parry and pick up archery/resist (or something else) or will a melee/parry/bushido be at least fairly effective without vampiric embrace?
