    Highly uncalled for!!!

    To the OP:

    If you look at the sticky at the VERY TOP of this forum...2011 Warrior Template Thread? You'll find what you need there :)

    Instead of just coming on here and posting that you need template help, there's a wealth of information and nice templates in that sticky.

    The problem with your question is that there is a lot of possible sampire variations, all with slighty different strengths and weaknesses. Also depends on your suit. Some builds only work well with really good equipment, others are good even using cheap stuff.

    You need 120 weapon, 99 necro , 90 tactics and gm+ bushido. Everything else is up to you. Its also possible to make necro warriors without bushido.

    For someone without much gold or good gear, one of the variants with healing and anatomy may work better for a start.

    Problem with all the other sampire templates on Stratics is that they don't take into account the recent changes to Chivalry. Seems like a good question to me.
  7. Chivalry can't get to +100% DI by itself, so although the chivalry changes affect sampires with chiv, I'm not seeing many people changing their templates because of it. I decided on 80 chiv to guarantee consecrate weapon because of the changes but probably would run about that even w/o the changes. Here's my template for the OP:

    120 bushido
    120 fencing
    120 tactics
    120 anatomy
    99 necro
    91 parry (most run 61)
    50+30 chivalry (30 from jewels; most run EP instead of +skill on jewelry, but I went for a bit more parry b/c I'm not worried about mana and I don't like copying what everyone else runs)

    Bort do you use the Kamas and whirlwind special for large crowds of monsters?
  9. I actually swapped to fencing from macing for boss runs rather than champ spawns. Here's what I'm using:

    68% Mana Leech
    50% Hit Lower Attack
    50% Stam Leech
    25% DI

    I've got 20% SSI on the suit so I don't need SSI on the weapon and can fit in HLA. Leafblade is 13-15 base damage vs. 14-15 from war axe, so for a slight damage decrease, I can use feint and HLA.

    For champs, I'd rather run mace fighting. War Axe for champ, Black Staff for spawn.

    Black Staff (enhanced with bloodwood as I don't need the SSI from ash)
    22% Life Leech
    68% Mana Leech
    50% Stamina Leech
    50% Hit Area
    25% Damage Increase
    2 Hit Point Regen

    I'm honestly not sure if it's "better" to run with what I feel is the better spawn weapon and slightly worse champ weapon or run the slightly worse spawn weapon and use the better/best champ weapon.

    Mace Fighting
    Black Staff 13-16 base damage (slight parry bonus from a 2-hander and higher base damage for WW)
    War Axe 14-15 base damage


    Radiant Scimitar 12-14 base damage (added bonus is you can use pots)
    Longsword 15-16 base damage (slightly higher base damage than war axe)

    From my limited experience, you should probably pick what you want to fight and then pick weapon skill based off of that, but technically, anything will work ok (e.g. for mini-champs, whirlwind is nice but not mandatory, so you could run a leafblade even and either AI or momentum strike and be just fine).
