Returning player, ABC or Sampire?

    Hey guys, I'm returning to the game after a long break. I came back for a month or so a few years ago and was in the process of making an ABC. He is currently at:

    Anatomy 100.0 100.0
    Archery 100.0 100.0
    Bushido 100.0 100.0
    Meditation 100.0 100.0
    Healing 99.5 99.5
    Tactics 99.5 99.5
    Chivalry 97.3 97.3

    I'm just curious if this is still a viable PvM template, or would I be better off starting a sampire or something else?
  2. Personally, I'd replace Med with Resist, but that's just me. You'll also need to get some 120 scrolls, as you'll want 120 Archery and Bushido, with 115 Tactics. You don't need that much Chiv either, so you'll want to bring that down to 75 or so. My ABC template is-

    120 Archery
    120 Bushido
    115 Tactics
    100 Healing
    100 Anatomy
    90 Resist
    75 Chiv

    Thanks for the reply Connor. Since it seems you are the goto guy for sampires from what I have been reading, could you suggest a sampire template for a returning player to be used purely for PvM?

    I've heard of ABC's soloing Stygian Dragon....but you can only have so many HP and heal so much. Don't you get into deep trouble against things like Navrey when she webs you? I'd like to play one of these but they seem weak.
  5. If you check the FAQ at the top of this forum, there are 2 templates listed, along with a slew of information, for you to peruse. One of the templates is my "standard" sampire template.

    They're both viable. Depends more on your personality, which do you prefer: dancing around you enemy while filling him with arrows or charging in headfirst and trading hit for hit, or if it's a mob, whirlwinding them all to death?

    Thanks for the info guys, think I will make a sampire using Connor's template then.
