OK let me preface this by saying that I have been lurking these boards, reading many threads to gleam information on the best way to create and fight as a sampire. I feel I created a good suit and am pretty well off at the moment. I am able to solo things like Miasma (not hard), and A LOT of peerless by myself. However I am having a huge problem…Dread Horn. I keyed for him the other day on my mystic and was going to use my sampire to fight him and see how I do. Basically I got stomped in less than 5 seconds. Considering I read how people solo him with ease, I’m trying to figure out where I went wrong and could REALLY use some input. Here are my stats, skills, and suit: Race: Human Str: 100 Dex: 100 (116 modified) Int: 30 (40 modified) HP: 100 Mana: 40 Stamina: 156 Skills: 120 Macing 100 Necromancy 100 Anatomy 100 Tactics 100 Bushido 100 Spirit Speak/Healing/Resist Spells/Parry (can soulstone out depending on situation) 70 Chivalry This leaves 30 points left over which I plan to put 110 into Bushido, Anatomy, and Tactics until I can afford 120 Scrolls. Also I only have 230 Stats at the moment simply because I cannot afford a +25 stat scroll. I’m trying to work my way up to it but it is going to take some time. One I do that I plan to put all 25 points into Dex. I used macing because it is cheap for the scrolls and I have a good amount of stamina increase on my armor too allow 1.25 Swing Speed on the weapons I use. Here are the mods on my current suit, all of which is imbued armor except for my helm which is the Ancient Samurai Helm. My suit has the following on it. 70/70/70/70/75 Resists after Vamp Form 40% LMC 45% DCI 30% HCI +40 Stamina Increase +16 Dex +10 Int 40% Damage Increase I use only a few weapons which are as follows: Diamond Mace which I use for slayers so I can chug potions as well since it is one handed. Right now I only have a couple for various spawns like the ratmen peerless and Miasma but I plan to make more in the future. They normally look like this: 45% Damage Increase 20% SSI 55% HML 50% HSL Various Slayers I have a black staff made for an all purpose weapon which I can use to whirlwind on general spawns. This weapon has served me well so far. My only black staff has the following mods: Made from Frostwood 52% DI 50% HLD 45% HML 40% HSL 20% SSI Then next I have a defensive mace weapon for the Feint ability which is a Tessen. It currently has the following mods: 40% HLD 50% HLA 40% HML 50% HSL 45% DI With the Diamond Mace I am able to chug potions. With the two-handed weapons I have a quick arm/disarm macro set up so I can drink a potion quick and rearm ASAP. I know it was probably too soon to take on Dread Horn but I wanted to try it out. I didn’t think I would win but I certainly did not think I would die as quick as I did. Anyways I know there are things that probably need improved which is why I come to you guys. I made this template on a budget and I think I did a good job. I want to buy a +25 Stat scroll and get a Crimson Cinture but right now I can’t possibly afford them. Down the road probably, but right now no. What I want to see is there anything I can do with my current setup that would allow me to do Dread Horn solo? Also which skills are best to do DH with. I normally use SS for the corpse HP regen and the Curse Weapon...70% Leech Life is very nice but that didn't seem to work too well. So any Ideas on how to make DH more friendly for this sampire?
