Best Bone Necro Killer

I just happen to have the greatest contempt for bone necros, even more than hammerdins. At least hammerdins have to take the risk to tele on top of you, bone necs just tele offscreen and spam spears, teeth, spirit, prison, etc. And they have that wimpy bone armor to protect themselves.:laugh:

So, what, in your opinion, would be your preferred bone necro killer of choice? I know that this is one of the biggest fishes I'm after, but what would be the most effective build to take them out? Any build works fine short of bugged Auradins, using juvs, etc.

The thing is, necros rarely have a secondary resists / sorb setup for elementalists. Without maintaining the current cast frame that is.

Windy with grizzly do fine. Wolves are easily teethed away, and then a walking necro will eat you.

WW/LS can be great, but only if necro is nonblock. I rather think a pure trapper will do better gm, clawblock / shadow shuts down what occasional projectiles the necro manages to make contact.

Fireball will be better than Nova. More tankage / faster cast / higher damage. A delay namelock tele followed by fireball aimed down is just unbeatable.

All sorcs are generally hard for necros. GM ofcourse. Blizzard being the weakest.

Windy is top choice because of their summons.

BVC can do well aswell, altho its still a difficult duel.

Theres not really any chars who will rip a boner apart tho.

Re: Best Bone Necro Killer

I currently have a maxblock necro and I would say the toughest duels for me are well played windy's, any ES sorc but nova and fireball in particular.
Windy's I am getting better at dealing with, but if you want to kill good necros with it you need to be able to not just tele stomp, but be able to tele were they will be running to. I can walk crap druids really easy, its the ones that can predict where I am walking that pwn me.
ES nova and fireball sorcs I haven't really even ogtten close to killing, well except a couple crappy fireball sorcs. They just pwn my nec. They tele faster, do alot of damage, can FHR lock me even when I have 86 FHR breakpoint, and most necros don't have to much space open for sorb.

i'd have to echo the ghost + windy sentiment. necros can usually stack (and sorb) sorcs to infinity and beyond, so they can't always be depended on for the kill.

Sins are easy to resist as well and I'd rather use sorc vs 95 res nec. At least you can catch them even if they defwhore and counter absorb by negating their damage with high es+mdr.

Windy = autowin anyway.

But then again, TienJe plays a physical based Ghost with insane bugged claws. :p

always wanted to make that type of wwsin but i cant solve the problem with trap speed, high dmg claws are usually very slow :(
(btw does he use 322 or shadow sks?)

His guide is in the Assassin forum. He uses 2x FHR Shadow GCs and the rest are 3/20/20s.

Re: Best Bone Necro Killer

I think an ES fire sorc would be nice, so would that be a 200 FCR one or a 105 FCR one? Reason being I think 200 FCR is too much of a sacrifice to duel in pubs, leaves no space for stacking and no block.

Re: Best Bone Necro Killer

necro vs es sorc duels usually end up becoming a battle of attrition, and both parties just wait for the other party to get tired or for the necro to run out of mana. if you're looking win convincingly over the necro, i'd suggest you use another build.

Re: Best Bone Necro Killer

Windy and WWsin are the only ones that pose a real threat to a Bone Nec.
BvCs aswell ofcourse, but I've never had the pleasure of dueling any good BvCs, so I wouldn't know.

ES is pretty anti-necro since you can almost completely negate their dmg. Slightly more challenging (but only if the necro is good) is a wind druid.

Re: Best Bone Necro Killer

Maybe its because I never ever change my gear for whatever reasons, but I have a harder time against es sorcs than any windy.

Unless they have bear. Which most don't.

yeah the myth about bvc doing well vs nec is still alive I see, block nec with 50dr is more than what a bvc can deal with.
