I'm thinking of making a sampire, as I have yet to try them out and am very interested in the idea of soloing high end monsters without using my tamer. After much research, I see that making a successful sampire requires the right equipment much more than any other type of character. Unfortunately, getting runic-crafted equipment that's good is just outright overpriced on my shard, so I delved around and found that I could piece together an all-artifact suit for about 10 mil that I believe should do the trick. Here's the set: -Soul Seeker (or better weapon if I can find one, I've already got several SS's) -Heart of the Lion -Ancient Samurai Helm -Resillient Bracer -Ring of the Elements -Totem of the Void (switch to primer talisman down the road, it'd double the suit price) -Quiver of Infinity -Jackal's Collar -Leggings of Bane -Stormgrip -Song Woven Mantle This setup will give me various nice mods, but specifically, it will give me 45% DCI, 35% HCI, 8 HP regen, and 70/70/70/70/75 resists. Adding in a crimson cincture would be a nice extra once I can get my hands on one for a decent price, as well. Anyway, to you sampire guru's: Does this setup seem like it will be an effective one for peerless/doom solo's? For reference, this is the template I plan to run: 120 swords 120 parry 120 bushido 100 necro 100 tactics 60 chivalry 100 anatomy/resist (situational) 125 dex, 105 str, 25 int, elf I'm also considering mace and shield glasses in place of the ancient samurai helm... Would the HLD be more useful than the 10% DCI from the helm (if I calculated right, setup above has 50% total DCI so dropping the helm would leave me with 35% DCI)? Granted, this would basically double the price of the suit, so it'd be a down-the-line deal anyway, but I'm just curious if the DCI or the HLD would be more useful.
