    These are doable with sampires right? Any specific template, or just the standard one?

    Slasher and Medusa, probably. Expect the Stygian Dragon to take a while.

    I did Medusa during beta using my template

    120 wep
    120 bushido
    120 tactics
    100 anatomy
    100 healing
    100 necro
    60 chiv


    But I heard she was supposed to be harder now. I'll just have to try it sometime soon. Didn't try the others, in beta or after launch. Solo anyway.
     
  4. Medusa is definitely possible. I haven't tried it solo, but I've fought her 4-5 times in small parties and never had to take a step away from her as a sampire. Died a few times on the first visit, but on the last three visits only time I got close to death was when I was surprised by an undead gargoyle when turned to stone.

    Standard sampire template, not fully trained, as follows:

    Skill current/target
    Bushido 115/120
    Swords 120/120
    Parry 95/120
    Tactics 100/100
    Necro 100/100
    Anatomy 100/100
    Chivalry 75/60

    Slasher of Veils I'm not sure. Only fought him once at it wasn't on my sampire. I think it would be an extremely tough fight though. Stygian dragon would be a negative as far as I can tell. Fought him 3 times and had many many deaths each time. The way he moves, how hard he hits, what that does to stamina and speed, and how difficult it is to hit him for big damage are all difficult things for a sampire to overcome. Much better done with archers and mages I think.

    Medusa is easier than Dreadhorn IF you use Gorgon Lens's crafted from the bright blue Medusa scales you can harvest from her while she's alive. Only trouble may come from being EoO to her and having say one of her Ogre Lords or Dragons come to life and attacking you.

    Slasher is possible, got it down to 50% with no grey robes in my backpack..used my ABC archer (used a fair few bandies and apples though)...got bored and left though as was taking too long, I would rather have the battle with my fellow guildies
