    I finaly got up to the part where I need to hunt grave robbers for the turn in items to build my love up for meer. I didnt mind have to find a group to take on the BE for the bloood sample but I think the damage reflect power on the humans is a but over much for my melee warrior.

    I hoping the devs will see this and talk about dumbing them down just a little bit. I dont mind it being hard but having to only make one strike run away and heal and run back is not my idea of a fun quest.

    You may have to bring a caster to take care of the Blood Elementals. If you are able to cast RC's or EV's,that would be your best bet.

    The combination for the reflect they have and damage they do to you can be a bit much, but I just disarm them. Then all you have to do is worry about the reflect. I know it's a pain due to how long the fight takes, but you actually come up better doing less damage to them on each hit.

    ^ I was thinking about this myself to try. I just like to use my melee warrior for all EM/UO story quests but I guess i'll have to break down and use a alt.

    Well the reflect power I think was made in order to avoid the sampire supremacy on everything, because without it the market would be flood with thousands of statues...

    So IMHO this power have to stay and if you want to gather loyalty just use another template or find a way to survive :p

    I have defeated them on 3 different meelee warriors.

    No Sampires.

    Rough ride but doable.

    VERY sorry for the first draft of this post, for some God-awful reason I thought it was about the purified blood elementals!

    -Galen's player

    PS: Quick note regarding the purified bloods, also doable on a warrior, just don't use life leach let alone Vampire form.

    Use a mystic. Get a Grave Robber by itself. Cast Rising Colossus till its dead. You take no damage.

    If you have spellweaving and a repond spellbook, use Word of Death to kill it even faster once it is low.

    Rinse. Repeat.

    Instead of a repond spellbook just use a Scrapper's. Slayer properties don't work when it comes to WOD, or that's what I have found. With a scrappers I WOD them for 543 compared to only 492 with a repond book that has 9 sdi on it.

    *edit*

    Also on Grave Robbers, fireball with scrappers 38 range, fireball with Repond Book 27 range.

    They are not vulnerable to repond slayers. In fact, I don't think they have a slayer. They reflect 50% of the damage dealt regardless of its type and just like Minions of Scelestus, life leech damages you as well. If your character solely relies on leeched hit points and has no other effective means to heal, then it won't be an easy fight. However, if you have a high Healing skill or can heal yourself using spells, you can kill them by dealing some damage and moving away for a while to heal since they don't have any ranged attack. It will not reflect the damage dealt by the summons to you, so energy vertices and rising colossus can also be used effectively. They have about 2,500 hit points and deal about 65-80 physical damage (about 25 with 70% physical resistance).

    There hasn't been a UO event monster that was worth the effort in years. That whole thing with the demons in Ter Mur or whatever last year? If not for these forums I would never have know that even happened, because nobody I know in-game even mentioned it. Nor have I seen this event mentioned by anyone in-game yet.

    You can use your meleer, just hook up with someone who enjoys to heal and have them heal you as you beat them down and split the loot. Find someone honest cause healers can get loot now aswell. Would use a slow weapon though.
