    Are Bone/Summon and Poison/Summon Hybrids viable in Hell?

    I'm bored with my Fishy, and my Boner.

    So, are Boner/Summon hybrids and Poison/Summon hybrids as awesome to play?

    And are they as versatile?

    I plan on maxing SM and RS on both builds no matter what.

    I'm an Exclusive Necromancer user, so I'm trying out every build possibility.

    With the right gear the build is quite viable. Using skeletons as your meat shield and bone spirit or spear as a backup. Plus you can generate your own corpses. Ive never done it but im sure its fun in pvp too.

    i HAVE A ....*caps off*
    I have a lvl 72 poison/summon necro.
    All synergies to poison nova is maxed so RS isn't maxed yet.
    With trang ouls gloves on it almost does 4000 dmg.(or was it 3000?)
    In hell I can kill devilkins in one nova without using lower resist.
    I haven't found trangs skulls yet(helm,shield)
    Is it worth putting a single point into skeleton mage btw?

    For a poison/summoner build..

    It almost unplayable in Act 4 and 5 if you dont have those -% Poison Equipment because most of those monster usually have 90%~100% resistance...Lower resist wont help much either..

    I did beat the game with it but it really take me alot of time just to get through Act 5..Especially against Baal's Minion of Destruction.

    And yeah, Learn the Revive Skills. It help alot since It going to aid your skeleton as well if if you encounter Poison Immune Monster.

    Poison/summon viable, yes, at least up to say 5~6 player anyways. Gets a little slow with 8 players, but what do you expect from a build that is not a hammerdin or a GG light sorc.

    I am still missing like 2 skillers though, and need a little more on the poison synergy (I maxed RS first).

    I have a poison/summon, hell is a breeze, but I have some great gear. I think that the need for -% enemy poison resist makes this build extremely item dependent.

    If you are adamant about maxing both RS and SM then I think you will have a problem with either build becase you won't have enough points to max the synergies on the PNB tree and get LR. A Bone Summon Hybrid I would think would be even more difficult becasue you need almost every single point just to synergize your attacks. I do think you could make a Poison Summon hybrid viable by focusing on Revives instead of Skeletons though especially if you have a source of teleport. the main reason being that you get more meatshields per skill point invested. And like every one else has said I think that it is especially item dependent.

    Bone/Skele hybrids are very viable in hell.
    This build can generate corpses without a merc, from any Act in hell, completely naked, and with ~10 or so skeles do the whole game. Your Bone Spirit damage will be around 1.5-2k, which isn't mind bendingly fast, but in many cases will be a lot faster than a poison/hybrid. Combine that with skeletons, merc, and CE, along with curses, and the only monsters you won't be able to defeat are magic immune/unbreakable physical immune...very rare.

    You do not need to max out every synergy for BS to be effective as most people seem to believe, because you will have an army of skeletons. Essentially you're a sniper and your skeles are the cavalry (tanks) that just roll over everything, or hold it up so you can pick it off.

    Another great thing, items make you stronger, but they aren't necessary, much like the summoner.

    Btw, my first (since coming back) and favorite character is a lvl 93 hybrid bone/summon.

    Perfect poison necromancer is as fast as javazon. No, faster.

    Hammerdin can lick his boots.

    He doesn't need many summons tbh, just the clay golem.
