    Recently I was farming in Shame with my Sampire. It was not very satisfying due to the lack of luck on this build. Maximum possible for me is 1220 (Perfection + Soles of Providence + Conjurer Garb)

    After testing the mages in Shame LV5 I recognized that Life Leech from Weapons and Vampire Form is selfkilling. So I swapped Necromancy for Healing and tried again. It worked very well and the mages (except the burning one) were no problem.

    I also tested the unbound energy vortices and they were as easy as in vampire Form.

    So I came to the conclusion that it must be possible to build a high luck suit capable for farming in shame. If no necromancy is needed FR 70 is enough.

    Ok now to make it short: I did some calculations. I haven´t built this suit yet. I want suggestions first.

    In my chart resistances are not included, every armor part is designed to imbue maximum resistance on 1 part. I´ll craft metal armor:

    With perfection max I would have 2860 luck, including 10th anni statue 3460 luck!

    Courage and Honor!

    Looks like an intersting set up. I would be tempted to have a go as it shouldn't cost the earth to build and could be interesting.

    That compassion's eye ring is worth having a look at also but I would have a check and make sure that the perfection luck stacks... I am sure i read somewhere that it doesn't but I am often mistaken. Anyway, looks like a decent set up :)

    Thx.

    well compassions eye is nice but the wrong stats for this build. There would be a massive lack of DI DCI HCi and I think the 150 luck bonus isn´t worth this.

    As far as I know (uo-guide) perfection stacks with luck from items

    if thats the case I would be very interested to see how you get on. I have a good luck suit on my tamer but it takes fething ages to kill unbound ev's even with a good G-Drag. I suppose I could always mess around with my disco thrower and see how I get on!

    Ahh now. I´m crafting the suit reight now but I fear it will be a bit tricky. With gold enhanced and perfect use of all resists I have to craft a perfect suit for a total of 350 resists... well we will see or maybe wait for pub 81 :)

    Pub81 could be any time though hehe reading Uhall is quite an experience lol. In terms of the resists just take the time to get the base pieces I know just how annoying it can be crafting hundreds of the same piece looking for the 2 resists with nore lore/exp bonus but its worth it.
