Hi! First of all I´n new and stuffs. Since I gave up my thoughts of getting good in PvP due to lack of RL time I thought hey wtf I wanna solo all monsters in the game So I read and read and decided I wanna try out Sampire/Vampdexxer/Vampurai etc. I started a new char and stoned some skills over and build an absolutly massive suit. Then I started to try some monsters on starting with regular blood elementals and before I knew it a paragon spawned. It was not until I swung the axe for the last time I noticed "Dude h3's g0ldenz!" I thought to myself, damn this temp is really nice. Then I started to try out some other monsters like cus, succus, swoops for a few hours. After that was easy I tried the infamous Balron from h3ll! I died really quick. So my question is, how do you control the burst damage you recive versus high level spellcasters? Run -> Evasion? Run -> Bandage, Pot, Confidence? Counter attack -> LS ? Evasion -> Bandage -> LS and prey that you hit? How do YOU do it ? Of course I succeded to kill a few balrons but still it was a really risky business with their insane burst damage. That was the first question... Second one is.... I´m not really happy with the Sampire as it is. Maybe I just suck and I do need more practice but I thought the survivability would be better. Then I thought Wraith with healing would be ultimate for peerlesses. So first of all I wanna ask for reviews of this temp 120 Melee 120 Bush 120 Parry 90 Anat 100 Heal 0 Tac 53 Chiv +12 on brace 35 Necro +5 Bloodwood 82 SS +10 Bloodwood No tactics is low damage but you get curse weap + bandages + pots + bush on same temp, I dont know if that makes up for the lost damage. If this wont work then what is the standard wraith temp that people use? My Sampire uses the following template 120 Swords 120 Bush 120 Parry 100 Heal 90 Tactics 82 Anatomy 53 Chiv + 12 on brace 35 Necro The suit is really neat and that is not the reason why I dont succeed with soloing everything 61/63/69/77/68 (In vamp form and after protection) 23 HCI 63 DCI 73 DI 30 HLD 7 MR 30 LMC 21 HPi 10 Dex 16 Mana 15 EP Weap is Ornate Axe 38 DI 30 SSI 12 DCI 50 ML 42 SL Stats is not finished yet but I will settle for either 137/170 (real dex)/56 or lower the dex a bit and put into strenght. So the real question is - is the survivability better with a Sampire - Regular Whammy - Bandage Whammy?
