I have been working on a sampire, but I have yet to make him be at all effective. Here's what I have so far: Stats: Str 100 Dex 123 Int 22 (Moving towards 110/125/10) Skills: Resist 115 Parrying 110 Bushido 101.2 Necromancy 91.1 (100 w/jewelry) Tactics 100 Mace 90.2 Chivalry 65.9 Equipment: Heart of the Lion Aegis of Grace Fey Leggings Barbed Leather Gorget (SR 4, MI 8, 13/5/20/9/15) Barbed Leather Sleeves (SI 4, LMC 5, 4/13/8/17/8) Horned Leather Gloves (HPI 4, MI 7, LMC 7, 6/9/7/7/18) Ring (necro + 9) Bracelet (EP 15, DCI 13, physical resist 9) Diamond Mace (HML 15, HLL 15, DI 40) Makes my resists 69/54/59/54/75. I know most of the equipment sucks, but I can't make my own pieces yet, and I tapped myself out getting the three named items for the suit. Is my main problem my weapon? Or is it a combination of my skills still being low and my armor having no good mods on them? I picked the pieces I use because they got me as close to all 70's as I could get. I'm really at a loss for the weapon--the best I could do was the mace, and I managed to imbue those two mods on there (no chance at adding HLL for now). It doesn't appear that I leech much of anything at all. I would just like a little feedback on what I should shoot for next. Continue working the skills, or am I going to have to update some of my equipment before this character will be usable (currently can't kill ogre lords for long, because my leeches don't keep up, and I end up with no life/stamina, and have to run away and close wounds, and then my mana doesn't leech back very fast either)?
