Possible Sampire Archer Template

Discussion in 'UO Warrior' started by Lord Velner, Sep 2, 2010.

    I'm converting my Archer into a Curse Weapon Sampire. My prospective template is as follows:

    120 Archery
    120 Tactics
    120 Bushido
    120 Anatomy
    100 Spirit Speak
    81 Chivalry
    59 Necromancy

    Currently, my Archer has 100 Healing and 100 Resist; I plan on axing both of those skills and allocating the points into SS, Necro, and raising other skills to 120.

    Any input on this template is greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Very effective template.

    Not quite a sampire unless you can get into vampire form, but still... very effective.

    With a mana leech bow, you'll be able to kill just about anything.

    I plan to use equipment to boost my Necro to 99, casting Vampire Form, and then reverting to a normal suit. I'm only going to build it to 59 (as opposed to approx. 35) because I have nothing else to put the points in.

    If your necromancy skill goes below 99 while in vampire form, you will loose vamp form within a minute due to not having the skill requirement to sustain it.

    I run a vampire archer, without bushido. I use resist instead. I love it.

    Ah, I was not aware that the Necromancy requirement had changed.

    I suppose I could drop 20 from Anatomy and run with GM. Maybe run 110 Bushido and 90 SS to get the extra 20 points for 99 Necro.

    I've changed the template to look as follows:

    120 Archery
    120 Tactics
    110 Bushido
    100 Anatomy
    99 Necromancy
    90 Spirit Speak
    81 Chivalry

    Any comments are highly appreciated. In addition, does anybody have suggestions as to what my stats should look like. I am at 100 Strength 125 Dex 30 Int. I am concerned by the low Int, but it seems like it can be workable with enough Mana leech. Thanks for any help.

    What's the benefit of your latest template v. going 100 Necro, 100 SS, 70 Chiv? I'm assuming your usage of curse weapon will keep the karma negative, so throwing out some animate deads (at 100/100) wouldn't hurt.

    I hadn't considered going down to 70 Chivalry; I want to be able to consistently cast Enemy of One. However, it's minimum skill is 45 and is the highest spell I will need out of Chivalry. Would the success rate of Enemy of One still be fairly high at 70?

    Yeah, 70 still gives a good chance to cast EOO. Some sampires go as low as 65.

    Some Sampires? Cookie-cutter template calls for 60 or 61 (100 Necro or 99 Necro), mine is at 63 on the way down as i get to 120 parry ;).

    It's fine at 63 for me so far, just spam the hell out of it and your fine :p.

    I'm going to create an archer too so i was just checking around templates, sugggestion and so on.

    I've to say that's a pretty cool template.
    BUt i got few questions and suggestions.

    Well i can tell you that with 65 chiva i could cast eoo almost always without failing at all.
    So deffo go for 65 chiva.
    Since you're counting so much on curse weap...ss lvl must be high.
    Higher ss is longer curse weap will last.
    I would try 100 ss , 65 chiva and probably the rest on bushido.
    I guess bushido should be 120 but i'm not sure.
    As a warrior at least i felt really much the diff between 110 and 115.

    Btw...backing to template...is that a pvm template right?
    Wont u miss too much res spell skill?
    I mean...i hate so much when my warrior got almost always paralyzed by a simple barlog as well as a blood without considering their para-version...that each time i'm stucked i feel liked dead. (lol and quite often i die..)
    100 str seems to be not enough for absoring a 3x dmg session( 40-40-40 ) that those mobs sometimes do.
    And if u are attacked by more than 1 mob at same time?
    How are you going to deal with it? Wich bow, wich jewels are u going to use ?

    Granted it'd be a pain to try to switch EoO on the fly.
    ... and get stamina up with Divine fury.

    lynk likes odd # builds =)

    i roll with 71 chiv and love me some divine aura for the insta stam refresh

    sure i could carry refresh pots.. but i'm pimp like that.

    speaking of which, if you gents had 15-20 extra pts, what would you bump up?

    ive got:

    105 tac, gm anat, 90 ss, 71 chiv, 99 nec

    which im thinkin about bumping. someone made the point to me that strangle > revenant, although apple > strangle.
