    99 Necro for Vamperic Embrace. Samp Throwers work well.

    Thrower he is better off going wammy. Drop healing and parry. Add necro and spirit speak. Life leech on weapon. Soul glaive for ai and go into wraith form for mana leech. Use curse weapon for additional healing.

    call me silly but isnt the whole purpose of using throwing (or archery) to do damage and not let the baddy touch you?
    with that in mind why would you make a sampire thrower?
    just thinking out loud.
    cause if your dancing around and not letting it touch you then you really have no need for the life leech, right?

    seeing as you already have healing id do what you already recommended and raise up tact and sink the rest into med if your suit is medable or focus if its not.

    I wouldn't suggest vamp form. I'd suggest wraith form. That leeches mana. I prefer life leech and curse weapon over healing because they can't be interrupted.

    Something also to keep in mind is wraith form will only leech mana from from critters that have mana. so having mana leech on the weapon is advisable as well.

    You also want 120 tactics no matter which way you go.

    You will also want to consider adding bushido to you build and choosing between anatomy or resist depending on the critter you are fighting. Evasion comes in handy and the damage increase from honor due to bushido is necessary for critters you don't have a super slayer for.

    I write wearing a shield. That is not the same AS having parry.

    The skill setup depends on what you are going to fight.

    If you fight little one, there is no need for Bushido. When you fight harder mobs, dancing around may attract more spell casters to target on you. You need healing.
