Basic Vampire Creation Guide
When making a vampire, there are a few things you need to stick to.
Only train DEX and one other stat, such as DEX and INT or DEX and STR.
This ensures that when you reach level 150, all of your attribute points are in one specific class type making you the most powerful in that area, such as DEX/STR gives your melee extreme damage, while if you spread it amongst DEX/INT/STR you?d have less attributes in each.
What Does Each Stat Do?
DEX ? Your skill regeneration speed, accuracy, and protection.
INT ? Strength and success of your INT skills, and length of your paralyze.
STR ? Strength of your melee damage.
What Vampire Is Strong In What Skills?
Now that you know this you?re ready to learn which skills are applied where.
Any Melee skill, (Poisonous hands, Acid Hands etc.) are the DEX/STR vampire?s strong skills, while a DEX/INT vampire specializes in intelligence skills (Bloody needle, Bloody Spear, Paralyze) So basically a DEX/INT Vamp has a much wider variety of skills, meaning they take more skill to use and build a strategy for excellent killing but when you master this, these are probably the better class, however DEX/STR vampires have great brute force, defence, and speed.
What Vampire Is Good For Me?
Here are some pros and cons of each vampire class if you?re having trouble deciding:
DEX/INT: Paralyze is extremely long and your spells are long range and hurt a lot, you can paralyze something then blow the shit out of it :: However, your defence is low, and you have no melee strength and your HP doesn?t get too high. You have many skills to work with and must learn to use them all in a good combination to defeat your enemy.
DEX/STR: You can withstand many hits, and you can pretty much walk up to anything and hack the hell out of it and win with no problem, your HP is also very high leaving you with the ability to take on large groups of monsters with no real problems, also you have very few skills to work with so no real strategy is involved in combat, just click and hold :: However, you are a victim to paralyze, and your paralyze lasts roughly 1.7 seconds; and rarely succeeds. This vampire can also become very repetitive in further stages due to the fact you use very few of the skills you get.
Pure INT: These will hurt insanely bad and spells will never fail :: However the regeneration rate on spells is extremely long, your blood spear may hit 400 but it takes like 25 seconds to recharge.
What Kind Of Strategies Should I Use For My Vampire?
DEX/INT: An intelligence vampire has a long lasting darkness, so you should cast them and hide inside during your combat against the slayer race, as unless they use an Area Of Effect attack, they cant get to you. However against any general monsters, a simple strategy is Paralyze, Acid Swamp, Blood spells, Blood suck.
DEX/STR: A strength vampire should use all of his brute force with his high DEX. He should use rapid glide to navigate around his enemies, and slash the hell out of them with bloody nail and blood suck when appropriate.

Baronet ? Wisdom Of Blood
Reduce HP required for skills. This is important, coz ur hp is low and u probably die casting too much of 1 skill. Uranus Bless(HP regeneration) is useless, coz it only adds +1 more hp every now and then, which doesn?t really make much of a difference since you hp is already that low.
Preyher ? Wide Storm or Disruption Storm
OK after testing this shit out and asking for a few opinions, Wide storm or Disruption storm seem to be the best. Knowledge of curse is actually the Success of casting, and not landing. Therefore, why would you need success probability if ur int is so high and its like 100% success? Wide Storm lets you steal LOTS of hp. i could go from 100-1000 hp(with 20hps) in 1 casting on a full mob.
Graf ? Wide Darkness
WIDE DARKNESS sorry man PWNS!!!!! 5?5 darkness that lasts like 1minute and cooldown is liek 2seconds zomg.
Markgraf ? Curse Inquiry
Prevents para from those irritating mages lol
Armors and Set
Get the highest defence armor you can get. For accery items you need hps 2/3 work for hps 2 set first then work for hps 3 you are going to want to forge hps 3 aa3 or hps 3 int 6 more hp steal the better
Frequently asked questions
Can GoreGland Steal HP?
No. Its a seperate mosnter by itself =p
~Does BloodyWall and AcidSwamp steal hp? Why dont i see it stealing hp?
Yes they do. Its jsut that the HP bar does not update itself. For example, you wear 20hpsteal.
Your current HP is 10. You cast swamp/wall and steal 200hp, which makes your hp 210.
But the HP bar doesnt update, using bloody knife on the monster would make your hp 230.
~Why is it that I hit a guy but his hp go down very little?
Hes wearing All resistance or has very high hp or both. Vamps are disadvantaged cause of this resistance >.>
But Getting an EXTREMELY high amount of int breaks the resistance, and makes our life easier =D
Meteorm nus of lace and gore gland are nt affected by this resistance.
~You cant bloodsuck with meph.
Yes you can, but you get no hp from the drain. HPS solves the hp problem.
~Does the duration of abberation decrease because of curse resistance?
No. It only decreases the success rate of landing the skill. The duration will always be the same.
some other tips
+ ALWAYS TRY TO DRAIN other races! it decreases their tohit,prot,def and dmg.
+ Use Doom for easy blood drain
+ Use Seduction to reduce damage received
+ Use Death to reduce resistance, followed by para/swamp/ etc
+ Use Mephistopheles for High Defence, Protection, Tohit. This means die less, easier suck =)
+ When low in hp, use Curse Of Blood to para monsters and Acid storm to steal hp. Followed by meph
+ Use Gore Gland as a tanker if you encounter a mob,then RUN!!!!!!!
+ Use Hallucination to confuse slayers when in a mob. Makes them hit wrong people sometimes =)
+ Use Set-A-Fire on gore gland to push it in a direction of your choice.
+ Use yellow poison so that it blinds the nubs
+ Use Darkblue Poison(expecially on enchanter) so that u can pwn them faster.
+ Use Green Stalker on other races. It helps
+ Nus of lace and Meteor on high moju doods
