View Full Version : Vampire Lord - difficulty
01-17-2010, 09:37 PM
Am I the only one having a hard time killing Vampire Lord...I'm level 98 with a Mage(main),Pet(m-tank)/Priest(m-heal)/Templar(off tank) set-up...He summons a pet vampire which I can easily out heal the dmg. But damn Vamp Lord range dmg (not sure if it's magic or physical) tremendously overpowered hitting my Templar 4.3karmor/8k+hp armor for 2.7k+dmg. Even with pots/heal combination and even res scroll it's still not enough to last against this guy!
Anyone got a good suggestion for better group set-up and/or strategy?

This one gave me a tough time too but finally got him couple days ago.
My main was 2H Knight, lvl 97 with Priest Merc of course.
When I tried in the past (early 90's) I had my Mage Merc (max in all Pet skills) but Vampire was killing my Knight in 1-2 shots.
His attacks are magic. I went to level up some more and upped my Magic Resist gear (I am now almost 40% unbuffed). I also swithed my Mage for a Templar with Resist buff.
I attacked with my Knight then took control of my Priest for Heal and HP Potions management. As long as the Templar buff was on there was not much problems but when it faded away I could not keep up with heals. Used 5 res scrolls on my knight but eventually got him down! I am sure that Templar's heals helped also.
With my priest I did not bother shooting at the Lord, I was just focusing on healing/res and making sure I was close to the Vampire summons when doing my heal to get the aggro and then run around with it so it did not bother my tanks beating on the Boss.
I guess the best advice I can give you with your setup is to up your resist gear on your tank(s).
