All my n0oB questions in one post Four-socket shields: I have a Defiant pally, and part of the importance of having this build means high resistances as well as high defence. I've been having some mules cubing diamonds, but I have yet to come across a shield with 4 sockets. My paladin is level 25, by the way. Do 4 socket shields only come in later on? Are there any out there that a level 25 character could use? Trading: If such an item exists, I'd like to trade for it, but I don't know what people usually look for when trading. Should I keep my eyes open for sets? Runes? Uniques? Golems: If I have a Fire Golem, is it better to max Fire Golem first, or Golem Mastery? Do you get less experience if you let your golem do all the killing for you? Necromancer: After playing just paladins and assassins, I decided to try a necromancer, and have been learning that you can't let him just charge into battle like the others. A 'mancer should mostly let minions/golems/mercs do most of the work and use curses/bone spirit/etc. So it seems to me then, that a necromancer functions mainly as a spellcaster, like a Sorceress, right? What I'm getting at is that the necromancer should be pumping energy at every level up, correct? Also, for times when combat is needed, does he have to use a dagger/kris/wand? Is there anything stopping him from using a nice, beefy sword or axe? Thanks in advance for your help!
