Hi all! I have been contemplating changing my bushido/chiv warrior (who dies too much) into a sampire (which hopefully will die less). I read the Stratics sampire page, and I'm wondering how far behind the times the article is. I'm sure that OSI has managed to nerf the heck out of them, and I'd like to know if the sampire is still a decent template. I know for instance that one aspect of the article is outdated, which is the concept of using lightning strike and seeing mana and stamina leach on the weapon work for the special attack. I use the soul seeker currently, and the life leech and mana leech don't work while using lightning strike, only during normal striking. What is the most current form of the sampire? What do I need to have as far as skills, weapons, armor, jewelry, etc? Is the sampire still able to stand toe to toe with all that doom and peerless has to offer?
