I have recently returned to UO and decided to rebuild an old toon. I spent hours pouring through these boards and took the advice of Connor and a few others. I built a sampire with the hopes of soloing doom, peerless etc. I raised my skills in painted caves with no problems. To get practice for doom I decided to take on a few Lich Lords for practice. It was an utter disaster. The first battle near the honor shrine was with a LL, lich, and elder gazer. I honored the LL, cast confidence, evade, and concecrate weapon. I died in about 7 seconds. I rezzed and noticed a paragon LL. I decided to take him one on one in case the previous battle was a fluke. Same results. I died in about 10 seconds. If I can't survive this, doom is out of the question. Here is my build and template: 120 Swords 120 Bushido 120 Parry 100 Necro 100 Tactics 100 resist 60 Chivalry My suit consists of: Mace and shield glasses Rune beetle carapace Jackals Collar Fey Leggings Crimson Cincture Gaunlets of Nobility Primer on Arms Sleeves - with MR 1 and 71 total resists ring/bracelet combo - HCI 29%, DCI 15%, some resists, FC1, FR1 total resist in vamp form 70/48/56/64/66 total HCI 29%, DCI 39%, DI 80% Weapon ornate axe HML 41%, SSI 25%, and DI 40% Please tell me what tactics I should be using to help me survive. I also have anatomy and SS stoned in case I need switch skills. Thanks in advance.
