    I heard Sampire are the class that can still do everything, but what are your thoughts is this wrong?

    If its wrong let me hear your opinion
    and
    If thats correct fill me in on the new Sampire template that can do everything, or send me a link to the info, cause stuff has change since I last played and, I need to get back into the action and I want to know what it cannot solo, and I hope it can do the new dungeons and champ spawns,

    For solo play I still think the sampire gets the award for most versatile.

    Lots of options:
    Mine is
    120 Melee skill(I prefer mace)
    120 tactics
    120 Bushido
    100 necro (can be swapped for healing for mobs where life leech doesn't work)
    120 resist/120 anatomy swapped on soul stones
    80 chivalry (+15 on jewel for 95)
    60 parry

    My 'glass cannon' template that is a pure caster.

    1) Magery 120
    2) Eval Int 120
    3) Mystic 120
    4) Spellweaving 120
    5) Meditation 120
    6) Focus 120

    50% total sdi,3fc/4fcr,40% lmc,10 mr.

    I am also working up this template to see how effective it would be.It would be my 'dragon slayer'(leather resource collecting) template,as it would allow me to have an RC up and skeletal dragons fighting for me.

    1)Mystic
    2)Focus
    3)Necro
    4)Spirit Speak
    5)Meditation
    6) Resist Spells

    What is Everything? Sampire seems to be the one that can do it all, Every PvM adventure can be handeled by them :-( but with soulstones the sky Is the limit small tweaks here and there perhaps 5 soulstones and you can rock them all.

    Sampires are over rated :heart:
    A human max damage warrior can handle 95% of everything a sampire can
    but is A LOT more versatile on what he can take on. Meaning, he can kill plenty
    of stuff Sampires run from. The only drawback, its a labor intensive character.

    U can't leave in the middle of fighting to pee and expect to still be alive when u
    get back. You actually have to PLAY the character to survive. :)

    120 wep skill
    120 anatomy
    120 tactics
    120 parry
    GM bushido
    90 healing (enhanced aids for effectively GM healing)
    50 chiv

    Being human u get the JOAT (Jack of all Trades) bonus so u can cast arguable the
    best 2 defensive spellweaving spells with zero real skill. With a lvl 6 focus for attunement
    and gift of renewal, confidence, evasion, band aides, and potions if ur in a bind it makes
    the template uber strong in survivability while giving you max damage on everything.
    Add in orange petals, time your heals and confidence, and make sure to have a wep
    capped in mana & life leech... WINNER !

    Also, use 100% weps specific for what ur fighting so no need to cast chiv consecrate
    weapon spell. This leaves more mana and time to cast divine fury if stam gets low and
    spam counter attack and lightning strike for even more damage.

    All things considered, this template is harder to play and requires more timing but wipes
    out more things and faster then any sampire :owned:. Added bonuses : you get to sport
    a nice tan, your not pasty white, and you don't stink of vampire B.O. :D

    EDIT: In hindsight, I should add that the weps skill needs to be melee as archery nerfs leechings (not sure how it works with throwers). Also, add in 2 or 3 pieces of metal (chain or platemail) armor because the reduced stamina loss bonus given from them keep ur stam from dropping much at all when u get hit and divine fury will more then compensate to keep you swinging at the caps.

    Smoot, how hard is it to get the 100 DI and 20 ssi on the suit? The advantage of a sampire is you can have a pretty decent killer with a fairly inexpensive studded leather suit with no runics or enhancing, just legendary tailor and imbuing. Is your template a lot more expensive and harder to make?

    Great post and great responses

    This is what I like to see from community

    *tips a glass of good old Moonglow red in salute*

    "Tavern keeper! Drinks for everyone! This round is on me!

    Except for the Moonglow red, set that aside for me"

    *flips a couple of gold coins in the tavern keepers direction which are deftly caught, bit for authenticity, and squireled away under the tavern keepers apron*

    I got a Sampire/Whammy that i use for general PvM, like farming Essences at the SA Mini-Champs. He is...
    120 Swords (i like the Stam Damage of Mace Weps, but Swords has a better weapon/arty selection, notably the Defiler of Virtue)
    GM Tact
    GM Necro
    GM SS
    GM Bush
    GM Chiv
    GM Parry.
    With this template, i can switch between Vampire Form and Wraith Form depending on which is better for the situation. With Curse Wep up, i have 70% Life Drain in Vampire Form (more than 3x as much as most Sampires, since they don't have SS for Curse Wep), and 50% Life Drain/21% Mana Drain in Wraith Form. With that much Life Drain, i don't put Life Leech on my weps, since it would be a total waste (plus Life Leech in general has sucked since it got heavily nerfed years ago). There are some things this template cannot take though, like the Slasher of Veils, Stygian Dragon, Corgul, Osiredon, etc. For that kind of stuff, and events, i use my Thrower.
    120 Throwing
    GM Tact
    GM Anat
    GM Healing
    GM Resist (change up with Mysticism for RCs sometimes)
    GM Chiv
    GM Focus
    With a 100% Cold Damage Soul Glaive with 45% DI/30% SSI/Dragon Slayer/44% Stam Leech/33% Mana Leech, i can often times do 200+ AIs and drop wild Greater Dragons down to 30% Health before they can even do a Fire Breath.

    Pair these with a Bard/Mage, and you got some serious PvM power.

    Its relatively expensive. Theres tons of different sampire setups now, a macing studded set you dont even need ssi (just town bonus) cause you can get your stam up into the 190s. you sacrifice some damage but can get by on it. a swords setup can be done with just ssi on weapons (sacrifice mana leech) and swing double axe a little slow (1.5)

    You could spend 125mil plus on each jewel, or use woodland armor for some hci and damage inc and find cheaper 10ssi jewels. Youll need 2 jewels 25di, one woodland 10di, prismatics 25di (light of the way no hld i dont like those) Conjurers trinket or mana phasing orb.

    If you get lucky and find cheap jewels that work you can cut costs. this isnt a 20mil setup tho, more like 100 - 400 for armor and jewels before arties / weapons.

    Do you have any idea how much fun that is? hahaha. I do it all the time when I'm on my tamer & using my greater, especially during champ spawns. I just hit my 3 key (which is my "all guard me" macro), cast invis, pee, then come back to a pile of corpses at Shinryu's feet (as a huge classic Final Fantasy nerd, calling it "Dragon God" is definitely appropriate.)

    With the human JOAT I just used the hide skill standing against a wall when nature calls :). But when I'm playing the game, I like to actually have to do something to stay alive ;) .

    If you want to survive and win in the most remote places with no help around, I would suggest a MAGE-MYSTIC-STEALTHER. Otherwise an ALL-SPELLCASTER-MAGE (Necro-Weaver-Mage-Mystic).

    Yeeeees! No fighter, if you ask me. I love fighters. But mages are MUCH more fun ;-)
