    Back to the Poisonous Fish-Hunter

    Hey all, good to be posting in the Necromancer forum again, most of my business lately has been with Druids.

    My build idea was discussed in a thread I posted a month or so ago. But I kind of want to go a bit more in depth with it gear wise.

    First question is where would I find Necromancer IAS breakpoints?

    The build:

    20 Raise Skeleton
    20 Skeleton Mastery
    20 Poison Nova
    20 Poison Dagger or Poison Explosion
    1 All Curses
    1 Revive/Summon Resist and pre-reqs
    1 Bone Prison and pre-reqs
    ~10 Corpse Explosion

    Standard Poison/Fishy thus far.

    Gear:
    Rare Circlet +2/20%FCR Res with 2os (for res/ias jewels)
    Fortitude Archon Plate
    Faith Blade Bow
    Arm Of King Leoric/Homun or similar
    Arach or crafted 10 fcr belt
    MarrowWalks
    20 IAS knockback leech gloves
    SoJ
    RareAmmy/SoJ
    or
    Angelics Combo

    Basically a fishy that get in the business too. Yes a Commando-mancer fits this better, so I guess I'm a hunter. Poison Nova can handle crowds even with ~3.5k Damage.

    The Bow won't do a whole lot of damage, but it can do some killing after a Poison Nova or Corpse Explosion. It also provides a leeching outlet. No more Insight. The Fanaticism is higher than Beast as well which provides a cute factor. A great thing about the build is it can focus on one of the 3 main things, the bow attack, the poison skills, or minions. Pretty much your charm selection will determine this, so whatever fits your fancy.

    Anyone think this is viable? I'm sure it could handle most if not all situations and would be hella fun.

    Any ideas on a nice charm spread?

    Comment on it! :grin:

    ya, this is really similiar to Gvandale's Poison / Summon Hybrid on which I made
    my character. Though his guide maxes the entire poison tree, and relies
    on plus skills to increase skeleton mastery and corpse explosion, with terrific results. of course, gotta stress that your merc is extremely important.
    the skeletons take the heat off you and your merc, so he can rake em' up, while you paint them green, and corpse explode.
    you mention using a bow and i tried it for the heck of it on a weapon switch, and it was pretty much useless for me.
    anyway, i soared through hell practically naked.

    the bow is for sweeping up the limping 1 hp monsters and the like after nova/explode but primarily for leeching life/mana and also provides a high fanat for minions while giving me knockback for CC and style/fun just an idea.

    what kind of charm spread on a poison summoner?

    That would be here.



    It has 20/20 RS/SM so it will be able to beat Hell.
