Would this be effective as a Sampire weapon?

    Elven Spellblade
    ~40% HML
    ~40% HLD
    ~40% HLA
    ~40% DI
    25% SSI

    Obviously no HSL, but I could probably stack DCI so an occasional Divine Fury wouldn't hurt me all that much. Thoughts?

    While it's a shame, I'd say keep reaching for the HSL on the wep.

    I mean it *could* work without it but it'd be such a hassle.

    It's nice as a backup/alternate switch-out weapon. For a primary though...as Lynk stated. It is too much hassle.
     
  4. I concur.

    *bangs gavel*

    Motion passed. :thumbsup:

    Way back in the old days, before I got the rune blades I have now, and before the vamp nerf, I used some rune blades with no stam leech and I still kicked Dread's ass with them.

    You should be fine as long as you drink pots (leafblades are one-handed, right?) and MAYBE cast Divine Fury sometimes, until you get a good wep with HML, HSL, HLA, and SSI.

    I had recently created a Sampire, and I had asked a friend of mine if she would be so kind as to make me a Mace weapon that I could use. We've known each other for years, and she was kind enough to burn a few runics for me. This is what she created:

    • HML 40%
    • HSL 44%
    • HLD 38%
    • SSI 30%
    • DI 46%

    Physical 100%

    I think I drooled for a bit, took a shot of sake, and thanked her profusely for the very generous Mace. Needless to say, I hope you find your weapon of choice or someone would be kind enough to do you a solid as well, ultima77. Good luck, man. :thumbsup:

    How about this one?

    Guardian Axe
    HML 59%
    HSL 34%
    Spell channeling
    HPI 4
    HPR 1
    FC 1
    DC 43%

    I realize there is no SSI on it. Can that be boosted by another item?

    Even if you wore the assassin's suit for the 20ssi, that axe is going to be way too slow. Ditch it.

    Well depending on your dexterity you would want some SSI in my opinion. In my opinion SSI is a necessity for just about any weapon. Little damage increase hurts though. 15% is not enough. I would put it away or sell it unless it's the best you have.

    At least 35 DI on a weapon is acceptable. Most smiths have GM arms lore now (i would think anyways...hopefully), so most times the DI will be 40.

    Well not sure what shard you're on, but you can shoot me a message. If on the same shard I can set you up with some free weapons. I have weapons just lying around.
     
  14. If you're on Napa, I wouldn't mind a decent sampire weapon. Best I have is a Soulseeker...

    Of course, I'm just building my sampire now, so i guess its something you have to earn, eh?
     
  15. No, don't ditch it, unravel it. :thumbsup:
     
  16. And here on Pacific I've got 2 very nice Twinks that I can't even seem to give away.....:cursing:
