You know what I hate most besides Mind flayers? Vampires yes Vampires those good for nothing heartless blood sucking monsters. You see one day when I was playing the BG Seris for the first time. I saw a vampire. No three. I noticed that I usually overestimate my enimes. Like when I saw Yuan Ti I thought they were deadly strong. Or when I encontored a giant for the first time. But I said Oh this vampire would be "Easy as goblin pie" I sent my party charging. Minsc was first and the vampire attacked him and another and it said he was level drained I paused checked HP. You should have saw how my eyes gotten so wide in moments the Minsc was dead. I paused my brow twitching. I unpaused and attacked and you know what........I killed the vampire. But the other two killed everyone including me. I had to pass them to get someplace. I tried diffrent stratgies but they failed. I was fed up with them. I went to desprate measures. I summoned Two Panthers Two Bears and One Fire Elemental. We CHARGED! The battle was heavy and filled with blood. Panthers didn't last long but the Fire Elemental put up quite a fight. One of my bears go level drained so much he died in seconds. When I saw my creatures losing I raised my sword and my party attacked and slew the vampires. I was afraid I might have to do that everytime I encountor one..................I hate vampires....... So any tips how to kill them even though I beaten the game I want a easy way to kill em.

If u r soloing, use the Amulet of Power, it prevents u from getting level drains. If u r a Fighter of any sort, just use the scroll Protection from Undead.

There`s a Lich in the Inn in the Gates, behind a secret door; the chest behind it has a good longsword vs. undead...
Also, once you get the amullete of power it is very good against them...

Other than that, use your clerics for Negative Plane Protection. Makes you immune to level drain... once that`s done, vamps are as harmful as a level 4 Fighter- ok THAC0, but pitful damage and no extra abilities [img]smile.gif[/img]

If you have a babarian or berserker:

Berserk/Rage with you berserker/babarian.

Fighter/Cleric (either Anomen or Jaheira) wears amulet of power.

Fighter/Cleric casts negative energy protection on third warrior type.

Three tanks against vampires.

If you have only druids in your party remember to carry a batch of restoration scrolls on you at all times. They may save you from endless grief.

Indemaijinj, two things... 1. Jaheira isn`t a fighter/cleric, but a fighter/druid.
2) If you have only druids in your party, no need for restoration scrolls: Druids aswell as Clerics can cast Negative Plane Protection [img]smile.gif[/img]

I know, but for this tactic it doesn't matter.

It is still damn good to have those scrolls for backup if something goes horribly wrong, (a critical berserk wears out, the wrong guy ends up taking the blows, you mistook a wraith for a shadow).

What was the name of that throwing axe, which could kill undead in a single hit? It was funny, where the vamp charmed one Shadow Thief and sent it after us, and tried to run away itself. I ordered my char to attack and just as the vamp ran out of the view area, the axe hit it square in the back. I wasn't sure that I would be able to kill it, it always escaped me.. When suddenly - blam! XP! Not even a smoke puff appeared out of that vamp, a single hit blew it away and it's dried corpse was laying there, heh.. Always kept that axe at hand after that.
