Proposition for a new item you can make by gathering the bits and pieces of the fallen Vampires: The Vampire Slayer (like the Dragon Slayer/Excalibur, but weaker).

Requirements:
Vampire Blood
Cloak of Vampire Skin
Vampire Fangs
12000 gold

Where to buy: Corner Shop

Effect: Changes attack type to Chaos Damage.

Old Stats: +200 Damage, +80% Attack Speed, +20 to all stats, and 15% life-steal.

New Stats: +250 Damage, +80% Attack Speed, +30 to all stats, 20% life-steal, +2000 hitpoints, and can cast "Damnation", which deals damage based on Agility and Strength.

Thoughts?

It seems a bit too weak to me, if I recall excalibur gives 100% as, 300 damage, and reduces the attack cd by 0.3, and that last feature is really interesting. The only point in getting this new item you present is the lifesteal, a fairly rare stat but for which 15% does not seem enough. Maybe add a few stats, and an active that deals damage to vampires?

I was trying to mimic Excalibur. Would you make it more or less powerful? Because if you have all the items you've probably killed all the Vampires you will in the game already. Excalibur costs a bit more because you don't pick up any of the items.

Though it might have use on that super Vampire boss. What stats would you suggest?

You could add some health ( like +1500/2000) since the cloak gives health. And maybe an active that deals dommage based on your strengh + agility and heal you for the same amount.

That's a good idea. Instead of Extinction, like in Dragon Slayer, you get something like "Banishment" or "Damnation".

I like the idea, it would add a new layer of strategy to approaching bosses like Vrykolaklaus, Survival Mode Nosferatu or even Lord of Darkness. Since Vampires often have a fair amount of evasion as well, maybe the Vampire Slayer could also have something to counteract this. Maybe not something as extreme as Ares Sword's Never Miss, but maybe a 50% chance that an attack goes through evasion, or else an on-attack effect against vampires in particular that offsets the damage lost by their evasion.

Okay, that's also a fantastic idea. You could also do an Immolation effect (Call it Holy Fire or whatever), and we could make the art something like a crucifix-shaped sword.

Changing attack type means item can't be dropped. It kinda wasting slot if you compare it with 0.3 faster cd from excalibur or dragon attack from ds. I'd say some mid game item with decent nuke and lifestal, or an item to counter some spesific bosses isn't worth it to lose 1 slot for the rest of the game. It is more useful if there some unique traits that can't be obtained from other items, like vampiric aura that gives nearby melee unit lifesteal or spellcaster gains lifesteal from magic damage.
