    i do i run 71 chiv, with 70 parry, 120 anat, 120 bush, 120 fence, 120 tacs, 99 necro, i do pretty well with this template, but some boss's just cant heal fast enough, thought maybe useing bandages would help, and if they mana drain me is pretty much death for me. and yes i before ya ask i run mana leech on all my weps, but sometimes its just not enough., Just curious if anyone runs healing on their sampire

    I never needed it as I found the leech from being in vamp form sufficient. Using chiv heal is way to slow I found unless you can fit some FC onto the suit.

    I run healing (no anat) on my throwing sampire and it has saved my bacon several times. Although it is probably not even comparable to a tank on a swampy.

    I dropped Bushido for healing. Vamp form with healing parry and chiv works great. I use a shield with 10 swing 30 damage 5 hit 15 defense 4 lmc and 4 Stam regen . With tinker legs and swing jewelry I don't have to run swing on my weapons. I do keep the Bushido on a stone to switch out if I need it tho.

    Well I use a weapon that does armour ignore and has health leeching and find that helps alot. Then I hot key close wounds and the bushido skill confidence which will heal you even if you are poisened saved my butt many a time. With confidence works fast and you do not need bandiads so with a good weapon those two healing spells I dropped healing and the sampire skill. If your interested on differant set ups check out the warrior forums on stratics all kinds of good advice there.

    I like to run ss for curse weapon. 20% from vamp plus 50% from curse weap. Ill run in protection for no fail on cw. Hll is also underrated in my opinion

    I have Resist instead of Anatomy which cuts down on the Mana Drain and other curses. I also have Hit Life Leech and Hit Mana Leech on my weapons. Between Confidence, HLL from weapon and LL from VE healing isn't usually a problem. Also Momentum Strike when there's a 2nd or 3rd enemy close by helps get your health up too, comes in handy with bosses that summon mobs.

    I run template similar to Zeke's. Resist is more useful than Anat, IMHO. If you're doing a spawn with casters (especially if solo or with small group of people), I don't know how you could not have atleast 100 resist in order to survive.

    I generally feel that having Healing on a sampire is for suckers. Between the life leach you get from Vampiric embrace and hitting Confidence when needed, that should be more than suffice. Having weps with relevant slayers and HLD on them help too. If you're really still struggling, put hit life leach on your weapons to increase the chances of getting hit points back during your encounters. I know that the chivalry heal isn't anything special, but if you have it macroed to hit for emergencies or at times when you have a slight reprieve between moving from one group of spawn to the next, that should also help out.

    I too run resist in place of anatomy (thought I have anatomy on a stone for certain fights against non-casters like Miasma). I swapped my swords and did mace fighting instead. My primary weapon is a black staff. Swings fast enough that I can get 1.25 with no swing speed on the weapon. I imbue slayer, mana leech, stam leech and hit area effect, then enhance with bloodwood to get life leech and HPR. For single mobs, I use a war axe and alternate between lightning strike and AI. Usually doesn't take too long before the mace damage has completely whipped out the mobs stamina... which means much fewer melee attack.

    L0ts of great advice here, thank you, sounds like resist is the way to go, i can solo mobs like coon with ease, and even take on rikktor, but then when i come up against neira i get my butt handed to me ever time
