Whammy, the battle itself

    alright, i see a bunch of whammy/sampire threads about gear and skill templates but not much about the actual tactics used in battle. im looking for input on whats the best method of going about using a whammy/sammy. ill tell ya what i use so you can fix/critique and also post what you do to see the differences, and if anything special for certain fights


    to start:
    cast magic reflect(to get my resists right)
    cast protection
    wraith form
    enemy of one
    chug str/agil pots
    honor
    curse weapon

    once that is done and im actually engaging the boss:
    renewing curse weapon every ~25 secs
    lightning strike for every swing possible
    consecrate wep if needed on boss
    evasion when i get below ~75% hp
    confidence if needed after an evasion (not sure if im using this right... do u use it constantly?)
    chug cure/heal if still low after evasion/confidence
    renewing enemy of one when it goes down
    chug str/agil pots when they go down

    i dont really mess with specials as im new to whammys and im trying to remember everything else i need to be doing



    hows this look? please critique, dont be scared to be blunt about it. im somewhat new to the whole whammy concept but think i grasp the idea but would like tips/tricks of the trade

    Evasion? What is your template exactly? I couldn't really fit enough parry on my template to make it worth using.

    Other than that, that's pretty much all I do when I solo Dread (which is really the only thing I use wraith for right now, I'm going to move to other Peerless when I get more playing time). Since you're going to be using curse weapon a lot, I'd advise having weapons for each elemental weakness instead of relying on consecrate weapon, considering your karma will likely get low.

    120 weapon skill
    120 tactics
    120 parry (if archer... I replace this with anatomy...)
    120 bushido
    120 spirit speak
    70 chiv
    50 necro

    ..............................................................................................................

    I actually prefer archer for this template tbh. I don't worry about karma loss (always in wraith) and I max luck, HCI and DI in the suit... magic short bow with 30%SSI, HCI, DI and HLD ftw... specifically one without hit spell (the one i use/love) because it doesn't cause the occasional mis-hap with mel to reflag on my guy.

    This is not a solo character... I have a sampire or a greater dragon tanking the peerless/champ while I plunk away at it. perfection + 2200luck = uber loots.

    =)

    I actually thought about dropping anatomy completely for parry, I don't know if I want to though. Dread is easy enough without parry at all, especially because I use mace fighting on my wraith, and knock his stamina all the way down after just a few minutes. Even without that, I can do it no problem.

    And what's the reason for 50 necro? Curse weapon casts 100% of the time at only 40.

    Oh yeah, that makes sense then. Pretty much what I run (plan to, don't have any 120s other than macing on that char yet, lol), except I'm going to use anatomy instead of parry.
