[Fencing] A Couple Sampire Questions...

Discussion in 'UO Warrior' started by Artimesea Solari, Feb 9, 2010.

  1. I decided to go with Fencing for my Sampire Build. Here is the Proposed Template:
    115 STR
    125 DEX
    10 INT

    120 Fencing
    120 Bushido
    120 Parry
    100 Tactics
    100 Necro
    100 Anatomy
    60 Chivy

    I am on day 5 of training and came across a very nice war fork::
    HLL 40%
    Hit Lightning 46%
    HML 45%
    HSL 44%
    DI 40%
    As you can see it has no SSI but I will be close to 180 Stamina when I complete the suit.

    So my questions are:
    With the added HLL will a fork be fast enough to do DH solo ad such?

    I like using forks for the special moves, never been much into swords. Is fencing such a bad thing for a Sampire?

    I was thinking about splitting Anatomy for an Anatomy/Healing combo. Would a 50/50 split be worth it? Or any Combination? I know bandaids are really slow at that low of a level. Would it even be worth bothering with with the chivy spells available?

    With fencing your best weapon is going to be a leafblade in terms of DPS. The downside of fencing is there isn't a really good whirlwind weapon. The tessen (I think its the tessen?) is OK but base dmg is really low.

    You're thinking Kama
    (Darkened Sky ToT can be imbued to a nice WW weapon)

    Tessen are the macing Fans
  5. How important is Whirl Wind? I keep seeing that Doom it is both good and bad. I plan to do Dread Horn primarily. I guess I could see WW as good for spawning but I have other characters for that.

    Assassin Spike 26.4
    War Fork 25
    Is 1.4 DPS difference that big of a deal especially since the fork has HLL on it too? Won't I get Leech from both the 40% and the Vamp Form or does that not stack? And the delay difference is only .25 seconds. 1.25 vrs 1.5

    Think I am going to leave out bandages and just rely on pots and chivy for that. Seems like the added damage from anatomy is better than the small amount of cure/heal from healing.

    I realize this is a delicate balance and small changes in template or suit or weapon can mean big outcomes but how big of an outcome is what my questions center around.

    The main reason I am building a Sampire is that it is getting increasingly tough to find players that want to do the same things that I want to do!
  6. One of the huge drawbacks to a 2 handed weapon is the inability to chug pots or at least I keep reading that. I guess a well skilled/suited character played very well might not need pots, but I am not yet skilled nor suited just yet!

    50/50 healing/anat would be useless. You'd heal more with the life leech from the extra damage from 100 anat.

    Sampires put any other template to shame for champ spawns.
    Seriously, Wither-spamming wraiths look like newbies.
