Okay, I am in the early stages of building a Sampire. Necro is part of that template and its recommended to be atleast 100. Now the question I have to ask is. Can you raise Necro without fighting? I raised Magery all the way to GM without fighting anything I just cast the defensive skills on myself ...ie Protect Arch Protect you get the picture. Believe it not, I don't even have EI, not even a point. Thus, I mainly use the Magery to gate and thats it. I get the message that SS is needed to increase damage but can I raise Necro without it? Since I'm raising Stealing to 100 and maybe higher, my Karma is already in the toilet, so I figured since its already bad I might as well raise Necro now too. Any advice is appreciated.
