Sampire Thoughts

Discussion in 'UO Warrior' started by Green Meanie, May 10, 2009.

    So i was reading a couple sampire threads and thought id share the secreat of the template i run.

    120 swords
    120 bush
    120 parry
    120 tatics
    60 necro
    110 ss
    70 chiv

    The thought is to use wraith form and use curse weapon while wearing protection. The high ss gives extreme durations to curse weapon and a second form of healing in a pinch. My suit is 18 hpr 6 stamina reg 3 mr 15 lmc 45 dci 100 di 28 HPI all 70s. With a 80 life 50 leach stamina leach 48 lower d 38 lower a ornate axe. And the blade of insanity.

    The benifts are Much Higher life leach Crazy manna leach as a defualt no need to find on weapon. The draw back is you have to stop to cast even if it is less than a swing time to cast and you dont get mounted speed or the swampy armor reduction.

    Using this char i have soloed Proxy Simdar Dread Horn All doom bosses. I managed to half life a rikky till finaly his earth quake went off and i failed to parry his hit right after.

    Just food for thought

    Correct me if I'm wrong since I just came back to the game a few months ago but isn't that more of a wammy template and not a sampire template??

    I'd actually drop necromancy to 40, go 120 spirit speak, and go 80 chivalry. I keep anatomy on a soulstone and trade that out with parry occasionally, depending on what I'm using the character for. Something that doesn't do melee very much but casts a lot? Drop parry. Something that will hit you a lot and for a ton of damage? Keep it.

    with a wammy you can leech both mana and life. more life than a sampire right (with curse weapon)? so why do more people go with a sampire over tha wammy?

    Sampires on an armored swampy get damage reduction.
    They are more mobile.
    Don't need regs?

    I couldn't really tell you, I think both have their advantages.
  7. Because a Sampire can swap out 100 Anatomy for 100 SS and not only leech life as a Vamp, but also cast Curse Wep if they want, and all from the back of an armored swampy. Mana isn't much of an issue when you have a 40+ mana leech weapon.
  8. As a sampire I dont need regs so I can wear my darkwood suit, I can swap ss for 105 resist (makes 120 with resi brace), and I dont need to do anything to heal myself (cept on bosses), as the life leech and 18 health regen takes care of itself.

    There has been some talk about this before, and it's certainly player preference. Personally, I see the darkwood suit as pretty self limiting. All in ones play style, but I can get a lot more out of a suit I myself put together than any of the other made or acquired suit modifications.
