Answers
1)   What stats should I be aiming for while 're-rolling'?

If you want your vampire to one day run seth, you should try for these minimum stats (dex 17, str 18, int 16, lck 15). If you just want a good solid running vampire you can probably do better (and quicker) with minimum stats like these (dex 16, str 14, int 18, lck 16). Assuming you want a mighty, runner vampire you should prioritize your stat rolls in this order of importance (dex, int, str, lck, con, wis, cha). When leveling always keep your str, dex and con maxed at the very least.

 
2)   What is the best race for a Vampire?

Assuming you want a running vampire, you should roll up a half-troll. Period.

 
3)   What is the best alignment for an Avatar Vampire?

After you reach level 50, Neutral is your most powerful running alignment followed by evil. It is just too expensive to dress a devout vampire well enough to make him or her a viable runner (of bigger mobs anyway). Many mobs are affected by protection, so while your evil vampire can get a higher DR and HP more cheaply than can a neut, that advantage is offset by the fact that 25% of your damage doesn't even touch aff_prot mobs. Additionally, the realms are currently infested by very mean, anti-evil mobs called Divini Priests (help divini). If you are evil and run around, you will eventually encounter one of these gems. If you are in mid-speedwalk, they will likely kill you.

 
4)   Which Deity should I devote to?

If you plan to run much, consider a deity that gives fast favor because you will die. Our Immortals rule, but Supp CR is cheaper than Imm CR. I would suggest the following: Sarane (if you are female), Vl'aresch, Bael, or Gre'Vos.

 
5)   What Gender should my Vampire be?

Any is fine, but consider female in order to devote to Sarane - see above.

 
6)   Can you give me any leveling advice?

Max your con right away. Try to Max lck ASAP (some folks feel this impacts gains some say no). Have Sanctuary on. Always. At all times. Period. And it is a good idea to read 0.Jander's guide available on this web site.
