Hi, I was under the impression that being a vampire (via the necromancer spell) gave increased mana regeneration? Lich form, I thought, gives even more mana regeneration but at the cost of not being able to ride a horse. Is this correct? What is the mana regeneration for both forms? In the Necromancer spell book, it says that Vampires get both stamina and mana regeneration. Is that true? They get stamina regen? How much? I know that they have life leech if they choose (20% right?) For con's, I know they have reduced fire resistance: -25% and take damage of 25% from silver weapons (not really a con for PvE) and take damage if they use garlic. I tried to check up on uo.com and www.uoguide.com for more details, but what I found was less information. According to both, they make no mention of mana regen or stamina regen. So...are the websites incomplete or has the vampire form been changed since I last played? Regardless, I notice both the spellbook and the websites don't mention anything about their resistance to poison below level 5. So here are the pro's and con's with question marks for the ones that I am not sure about: Pro's: Poison Resistance, Mana Regen??, Stamina Regen??, Life leech when attacking Con's: Silver Weapons, Major Fire Resistance Drop, Garlic damage _______________________________ With all that in mind, what are the advantages of being a necro/mage in PvE? I guess I always used it for mana regen, poison resistance, (wisp and lich form if I need more mana and no horse), withering, and healing via spirit speak. Does anyone else use the necro/mage differently for PvE? I do have difficulty playing a necro/mage against top level monsters such as peerless, Doom, and very high level paragons...I find EVs to be my best attack rather than my other spells. Any suggestions on how can I do a great deal more damage to monsters as a mage (not as a warrior or archer)? For PvE mages, how many of you use necro mage? What other variations do you use? How about spellweaving? I never used it...is it worth it? Thanks!
