    How effective do you think this would be? You would have Lower Resists as an option on top of your FM, even at level 3 that's nothing to laugh at. It should give you some decent damage and that can be ramped with +skill gear.

    You also have access to skills like FW and Meteor which work well with Melee builds?

    The problem is finding an Echantress everytime that you want to play...unless you've got D2Loader and 2 CD-Keys...

    Yeah, I almost always play with my roomate, but playing an enchantress can be old and since enchant last like 13 minutes you don't have to actually play with the enchantress full time.

    I don't see why it won't work...LR instead of FM, BA instead of ES...and a whole lotta neat support skills (CE, Skeles, etc) :).

    Well yeah, and the Enchant takes care of your AR with Zeal for the most part.

    ANd you do have Fire Mastery at level three if you are wearing all of Trang's Set. This isn't great, but it would be a great way to have both FM and LR on the same character and no other character other than Sorceress can have FM.

    I wonder what a Zeal Phaseblade weilding Vampire would look like. I wonder if that would effect your Zeal animation speed.

    Passion 4 Socket Weapons Dol + Ort + Eld + Lem +25% Increased Attack Speed
    +160-210% Enhanced Damage
    50-80% Bonus To Attack Rating (varies)
    +75% Damage To Undead
    +50 To Attack Rating Against Undead
    Adds 1-50 Lightning Damage
    +1 To Berserk
    +1 To Zeal
    Hit Blinds Target +10
    Hit Causes Monster To Flee 25%
    75% Extra Gold From Monsters
    Level 3 Heart of Wolverine (12 Charges)

    These are actually pretty good question lex, and is an itneresting idea. A few concerns however...

    Trang's attack speed is said to be bugged in vampire along with block. I don't if this is true just a heads up.

    Hit blinds target is teh suck for a necro. Makes your curses near useless.


    Also can you stand being a vampire all the time? *yeesh* ;)

    lol, I don't think I can stand to be a vampire that long.

    I'm willing to bet they did bugg the animation in vampire mode. And I don't own the stuff to test it. -- Its just a wacky idea that popped into my dumb little head.

    Hit Blinds

    Hit blinds target has to be the most useless mod for any melee class weapon - not only does it render any area curses (decrep, L/R, amp) useless, a blinded monster will STILL attack anything within melee range! Only a ranged attack weapons gain ANY benefit from this mod.

    Therefore, a "Passion" phase blade will grant Zeal, but it will take away any support curses you might want to speed your enemies on their way.

    Just my 3 cents worth.....
