    I've just re-made my entire sampire suit and next up I need to craft some new weapons (bladed staffs).

    I've seen a list before but I can't find it again. I was wanting to know what metals I should use for each kind of slayer.

    Bronze for spider and undead is all I can remember!

    What about the others? Repond, demon etc.

    Use Iron. Reforge 100% elemental damage, imbue the reforged weapon.

    I know we talked on ICQ but just so other people see.

    Shadow Hammer, "Exquisite / of Quality" option and also check Powerful.

    You can also use a copper hammer without powerful reforging. Also, consider using a dull copper hammer without powerful for 60% fire weapons and then enhance with bronze to get to 100% fire weapons.

    I always go cold for demon because of Semidar. But agree with the list with that exception.

    Bladed staffs arent worth using elemental damage. It was before 50-55 lmc suits and when you could double reforge (100elemental w/100 mana leech)
    Now tho, the idea is that you be able to AI every swing, or at least Most swings. so elemental damage doesnt matter.
    --- reforge with copper hammer for "of the vamipe" to get your 100percent mana leech. you only need 20ssi on your suit down to 150 stam (no need on weapon)
    --- you can enhance after, but the benefit is marginal.

    It's also good to make it out of iron, then once the durability drops to like 170 (I forget the exact number... maybe 178?), enhance with valorite (or the other metal that does durability) to take the durability of the weapon back up to 255/255.
