Well, fine, I'll give in... I see the science/wisdom that Sampires are just flat-out good. I'll use some Soulstones to Frankenstein-up a Sampire to then finish out. I have 85 Necro on the character I want to make into the Sampire, and on another character I've got 92 Swords, 90 Tactics, and 90 Anatomy. So I'll Soulstone-move those to the Sampire character, leaving me to get the 60 Chivalry (easy), 100-120 Parrying (not so easy), and the Bushido of course, and finish out Swords/Tac/Anat. Heh. Orrrrrr, I can swap the Necro with my Mage and have the Sampire's Necromancy already finished (since the Mage's is already 100.) Then of course, have to find gear. I know it's redundant, but can someone repost in this thread with a recommended relatively-easy-to-find/assemble/afford "starter" suit for a Sampire? That way I've got all the info I need in one concise place to look.
