Took down Dreadhorn last night using my swords sampire and accompanied by a spellweaving tamer friend, but without Gift of Life I wouldn't have this huge toadstool in my living room. I died a handful of times, he and his GD the same. The problem for me, as it has been for other peerless, is mana. Even with the expectation that mana would be an issue, I had close to none the entire fight. No CW, no DF. It was pitiful. This is a problem I also had fighting Travesty with two tamers using GDs and a Whammy. Suit with weap is (5x studded, mace and shield, cojurer's garb and trinket, despicable quiver,crimson,corgul's, and Guild of Assassin's is being run by Yew on Atl right now): All 70's in vamp form 45 HCI 25 DCI 35 SSI 100 DI 2/6 FC/FCR 23 LMC 6/15/5 HP/Stam/Mana Regen And stats are (no pots/buffs): 135 HP 183 Stam 65 Mana Skills are: 120 Swords/Bushido 105 Tactics 100 Resist/Necro/Parry 75 Chiv So, what needs to change to deal with my mana problems? I was using a double axe, and dealt with curse using apples (no real mana for reliable Remove Curse). I also used refresh pots and agility pots.
