    Any ideas?

    Alright, so i have 3 brothers, and have been getting a little bored with the standard battlenet lvl up, trade for certain items, then either duel, mf or uber. So while they go on the internet ive been mainly playing sp on our other comp. And i right now have a lvl 24 light sorc in A4 norm and a lvl 23 Skelemancer A2 norm.

    My problem is with the skelemancer. I have 5 skeletons and 3 mages, my merc is a lvl 22 prayer merc, and i have a clay/blood golem to go with them. Now im having problems on duriel, almost the same i had on andy..where i had to amp forever until all my summons died form the poison spray and then tp and get more and go back and do it again. Except now, Durry just swings like once, and my skeles drop. I was using /players8 but switched to /players1 to try to kill him quick and same thing happened. Do any of you have any ideas? also have amp, im, terror, life tap, and weaken for curses if that helps currently only one point in ce and summon mastery.

    Duriel in normal is a pain in the rear. Decrepify is what I would suggest for Duriel. Back to town for lots of merc resurrection/skelly retrieval. Or MP in a group and get an older dude to whip his rear.

    I always try to get a point in the mages (or find a head or wand with the skill on it) and be level 24. That way you can have decrep, clay golem and an ice mage (one is enough). Pretty much still sitting bosses after that. You can use this tactic on every boss you come across (up to hell baal).

    Doesn't IM+Clay Golem = dead Duriel?

    Decrepify should solve your problems... and also, I don't really use mages that much, but that's just my preference. I took duri down last week with only skellies and a merc, using decrep.

    Well, it is written by the Fisheh *bows*.

    Back on topic - Silvernyte, I couldn't connect to your game. I have sent you a pm - If you see me on, just poke me if you ever need a hand with the big D.

    Normal Diablo will probably be one of the hardest fights for a summoner. Decrepify will help you out again. Also see if he's biased towards any of your minions. He always seems to pick on my clay golem for some reason - there was a thread around here which seemed to indicate his target selection could be based on how much life the golem/merc/minion/you have.

    Anyway, if he goes after your golem as well, the advantage there is that your golem is recastable. Just summon him again on the other side of the big nasty, and try and keep him a little away from your skellies. That way Diablo should focus on the golem while your skeletons pound on him. Job done.

    Or just call out to the heavens and hope that a wandering light sorc takes pity on your character. :wink:

    Indeed it does and that is what I was going to suggest. Mana Potions + Clay Golem + IM = dead boss of any description.
