• Scuze me. My friend Burt says you're a vampire hunter. 'zat so?
— Uh yes. Yes it is.
• Well you n'ain't gonna find one round here, mate. They ain't no vampires.
— You don't believe in vampires?
• 'course not!
• But I do believe in con artists. And charletans who like to stir up trouble!
• Dead people who get up at night and suck blood. How stupid do you think we are?
• My place is haunted with 16 ghosts and they all say there n'ain't no vampires!

Tips & Tricks

  • An invisible vampire can be difficult to fight. They are hard to hit, constantly steal health, and deal moderately high damage. Being confused only makes it harder for you to hit one. High willpower and see invisible are both helpful when vampires are around.
