There is an allure towards the playing of undead subraces. One could say the same of the playing of a monk. I would also like to point out that werewolves are similar to the vampires in the ab/ac bonuses. Another undead, I know... Which brings me to the main point of this post: How do we compensate? What do we need to do to fix or aid others in their quest to save HOPE?
I will show some of the things that I have done to make it tougher for em, and keep Despair fun at the same time.
1. I have added extra divine and fire and blind damages and made their saves harder.
2. I have had the monsters in Despair improvise and adapt to their surroundings (all the undead) and do extra divine damage.
3. I have added the IoVH - although in their infancy, they are becoming more organized as we speak. I even allow players to join the IoVH clan, where they get special weapons and access to the vampire coven.
I cannot stop the server from becoming populated with vampire monks. I can, however, continue to beat them in PVP and continue to kill my bosses with my builds that are NOT vampires. With a properly built toon that is right for specific an area one can survive and prosper.
If anyone has any info, ideas or suggestions for a subrace or solution to this occurance, please feel free to post on it. I will consider all posts. I would not be above thinking of a new set or two that are not useable by vampires, or a weapon that cannot be equipped by vampires, that gives other subraces an advantage over them.
So in closing, if you feel strongly on this, join BlackJack and Czecky and Rick in IoVH. Oh, that reminds me, a friendly reminder: We at the IoVH kill vampires at any level - there is no such penalty for EFFIE killing when it comes to removing undead.
