    I think most notably on that template you are missing healing. I've tried a full necro warrior, a wammy and am now trying a sammy, with the following template:

    120 swords
    120 parry
    120 bushido
    90 tactics
    81 anatomy
    90 healing
    74 chiv
    25 Necro

    For equipment, I think it's important to use Mace and Shield Glasses in order to maintain a decent hit chance as missing can really mess up your perfection. Beyond that, it's important to keep DCI at max, have a decent level of DI so you can hit hard. HCI helps for when you don't use lightning strike, and MR is useful as always.

    Having a good weapon makes alot of difference. If you've got M&S Glasses then you want an ornate with as close to max SSI as you can find combined with a high HML. Other equipment changes could be Stormgrip for your gloves and Primer instead of Void Totem.
  3. I've had 2 of these templates, the first one I used just for paroxysmus' (did about 50 of em) but it could also easily do all of doom and dreadhorn:

    120 mace
    120 bush
    120 parry
    100 tact
    100 spirit speak
    90 necro
    70 chiv

    I used the spirit speak as kind of a stand alone healing method in addition to vamp leech and confidence for two reasons, I hate the healing skill & it heals through the paroxysmus' lethal poison which isn't auto cured on vamp form.
    I used 90 necro because it saved having to carry lots of extra insured necro items, I just carried the +10 blessed book and an insured arcane cloak (which lets you cast vamp form 20ish depending on your tailors skills) times. So I could self res and re vamp form in the depths of the dungeons and not need to worry about bandages being looted etc.

    The suit is mace and shields/jackals/RBC/fey legs, hci/dci jewls, gauntlets of nobility quiver. All in all something like 70/70/60/60/60 in vamp form, the other mods don't matter a whole lot providing your doing enough damage to stay alive.

    A Paroxysmus' dragon is a good buy if you plan on playing this template long term because you soon get fed up re applying armor to a regular one.

    Anyway that was the old temp my new temp is the same except I switched 100 Spirit speak for 100 resist, I've been using it for the invasion stuff so far and it will do well in doom.

    Evasion and counter attack are very worthwhile imo.
