The Sampire - based on wakened specifics.
6 years agoWed Apr 30 2014, 10:14pmThis section has long sat empty, so i figured while i have a few moments Ill begin the process. Ill fill more in as I find time.
The Core of any Sampire starts at the weapon selection as they dictate the rest of your build.
Here is a list of common whirlwind weapons from highest dps to lowest. With the benchmark being set to the highest dps one.
1. 1.25s swing double axe (100%)
2. 1.5s swing war hammer (91%)
3. 1.25s swing black staff (90%)
4. 1.5s swing double axe (83%)
5. 1.25s swing radiant scimitar (80%)
Here is the minimum stam and swing speed needed to achieve the aforementioned swing rates.
1. 1.25s swing double axe - 150(35ssi) 120(55ssi)
2. 1.5s swing war hammer - 150(45ssi)
3. 1.25s swing black staff - 150(5ssi) 120(20ssi) 90(35ssi) 60(55ssi)
4. 1.5s swing double axe - 150(15ssi) 120(30ssi)
5. 1.25s swing radiant scimitar 150(0ssi) 120(5ssi) 90(20ssi) 60(35ssi) 30(55ssi)
Once you have selected your weapon type you have a basis for your suit.
The first thing you have to reach is the swing speed threshold. The Rouge jewerly set(10ssi), Turquoise Ring(5ssi), Daimyo's Helm(10ssi), Assassin Armor Set pieices(5ssi each) can be mixed with the weapons ssi to reach the desired level.
One to note is Rouge jewerly set + a single piece of Assassins Armor Set is enough swing speed to reach 1.5 second swing on a double axe
If you need swing speed outside of your weapon than i would highly recommend getting your hands on the Rouge set at least until decent turquoise rings start popping up. It also allows you the ability to easily cap Damage Increase and Hit chance increase.
Here is what i would consider the minimum Mods to aim for when building your suit.
40% Hit chance increase
20% Defense chance increase
80% damage increase
65/85/60/60/60 (95 fire if fightning something that corpse skins)
15 stam above your minimum needed for your swing speed threshold to help maintain that swing rate through curse and stam loss through the rigors of combat.
The amount of mana needed is dependent on LMC, MR, and Mana Leech. But i would recommend atleast 35+mana, 20+lmc, and 2mr from armor if Human(5 if elf) for a total of 8mana regen.
It took me about 30 copper and bronze runics to make a full set of mana leech + super slayer radiant scimitars. Which might be out of the reach of most of the player base until more people start doing bods. With the new color bod drop rate change that was about 2k reset bods.
The two easiest super slayers to get right now are repond(soul seeker) and undead. Conjurer's Trinket from the cub event is an undead slayer so soul seekers mods work great in combination.
Sweet contribution. I am also beginning my sampire here on Wakened so in a month or two I will share my findings Thanks for your help!
6 years agoTue Jun 17 2014, 07:03pmMy personal best solo speeds so far on my sampire(macing):
Coon : 17 minutes
Niera: 26 minutes
Rikktor: 28 minutes
Semidar: 28 minutes
Mephitis: 34 minutes( only attempted it once because i hate this spawn)
I can see now just how much fun Sampires are and how awesome they can be. With my non-fully trained Sammy I have managed to solo all Doom bosses except for DF atm and I'm hoping that once I get my hands on some scrolls that will change.
Also my suit is coming along great but needs a few tweaks here and there but as it stands it is...
70/70/56/70/58 (In Vamp Form!)
with my gear on I have...
I can't believe how well it has worked out because I never would have been able to get this close to a decent suit when I was on Demise
What artifact pieces are used for this suit?
6 years agoFri Jun 27 2014, 06:29pmSince artifacts are easier to get ahold of compared to high end runic armor you want to fill your suit with as many as you can.
Mace and Shield glasses(its easier to get the blackthorn version)
Fey leggings( you could go HOL or Courage for dci instead but the hpi makes fey leggings a better pick)
Rouge jewerly set(cub items)
Conjurer's trinket (cub item)
Conjurer's Garb (cub item) or +5 fire robe (cub item)
Despicable Quiver(poison resist) (cub item)
+2 resist sandals (cub item)
That leaves 3 runic pieces to finish off the suit.
those pieces above give
45hci 25dci 80di 10str 25dex with 42/41/34/27/31 resists
THanks, looks like I have most of these minuc the jackals collar and the despicable quiver. I also need to find a few decent runic pieces! Thanks bud.
My Char uses very similar Gear as Noob does...
Mace and Shield Glasses (Blackthorn Version)
Despicable Quiver (Poison Resist)
+2 Reward Sandals
Blacthorn Hooded Robe (HPI 3 INT 5)...for now...
So practically the same except for the leggings. I use runic Sleeves/Gloves/Legs atm which aren't great as of yet but they get me by til I get something better.
I also may change my Violet Courage for runic tunic and Legs for Fey Leggings. =]
So i made a sampire this weekend. I went with macing bc its my favorite wep skill.
My question is, if you have to use a smith crafted weapon that is non-whirlwind (like for peerless) what one would you use?
Currently i am using mauls because they have dbl strike, i will change over to Qstaves eventually, but i dont have any runic saws atm.
UBWS Cresent Blade XD or if it's for single target anyway try using War Axe or Hammer Pick for the AI and get a nice damage boost
