Perfect Sampire

    Hello everybody,

    I was in the process of creating a sampire couple of years ago when I quit. Now I have a good collection of skills on me and soulstones and some high end items, but not sure what changes took place while I was away and what template and outfit I should choose.

    I have the following skills:
    Bushido 120
    Fencing 120
    Focus 115
    Anatomy 120
    Tactics 118
    Resist 117
    Healing 120
    Parry 120
    Necro 99
    Chivalry 71

    The problem that I have is that I wouldnt want to bring 100+ skills down as almost all of them went up naturally as I played through the years rather than through macroing and I would hate to waste all the effort. This is especially true for Tactics, Anatomy, Healing and Resist. I guess I could sacrifice some Parry.

    The items I have are as follows:
    Crimson Cincture
    M&S reading glasses
    Jackal's collar
    Ring of the vile
    Fey Leggings
    Rune Beetle Carapace
    Conjurer's Trinket
    Snake Skin boots
    Leut. of Brit Royal Guard
    Quiver of the infinity
    Shrowd of the condemned

    I don't have any decent weapon yet. I have 100 mln to spend if needed so I think I am all set to create a perfect sampire. Would appreciate any advice as to how I should complete this template and suit.
    Thanks!

    Thanks, but I wasn't planning on becoming an elf. Or is it a must for an effective sampire these days?

    All personal preference, but I prefer elf.

    If you don't go elf, then the idea is still the same but you would want to go factions and get the morph earrings.

    The best sampire suits have heartwood pieces. There are ways to do it with fewer than I used.. but I've yet to see a better suit without them.

    the 20 bonus mana and no need to imbue nightsight on a pc of armor is nice too being an elf.

    You dont need to imbue nightsight as a human, i run fine with nightsight pots.
    Joat 20 magery to cast it in a real emergency.

    These days it comes down to 20 more mana on elf vs being able to carry more and jack of all trades for some useful skills on a human. Or that someone just hates to be an elf.
     
  7. How do you train Bushido? Evasion takes 17 seconds in between casts, and lightning strike doesn't seem to do anything for me. Do you have to be fighting something in order for lightning strike to work? I'm almost done building my skills, currently:

    100/120 Swords
    120/120 Parry
    90.1/120 Bushido
    100/100 Tactics
    100/100 Necro
    100/100 Anatomy or Resist
    60 Chivalry

    Also, is anyone on Napa Valley that can help me build a suit?
    Thanks

    Yes, you have to be attacking something for lightning strike to work. My recommendation is to go to cavern of the discarded and just chain momentum strike on the ratmen. You'll gain swords and bushido at the same time. Other people will tell you to be unguilded, tame a dog in trammel, attack it inside town, and spam lightning strike.
     
  9. Great thanks, I was thinking lizardmen but the cavern I better. Thanks again.
     
  10. I have a question abou necromancy. I have read that some people only raise their skill to 44-45 then use Midnight Bracers, Bloodwood Spirit, & jewelry to bring their skill to 99-100 in order to cast Vampiric Embrace. Then they put on their normal gear. So my questions is, does the amount of life you leech have any bearing on your actual skill? I.e. Would I leech more life with 100 Necro??

    they nerfed this a long time ago, you need to raise it too gm or higher(105 is best) or use to jewelry, the bracers dont fit into your suit otherwise.
     
  12. Ok good to know. Thanks

    I wouldn't go above GM necromancy. I, and quite a few other people, just use 99 (the minimum for Vampiric Embrace) and put the extra 1 point into Chivalry or Parry.

    Because it makes such a huge difference, lol
