    Best wand for bonemancer?

    Im thinking a white wand with +3 teeth, +3 bone spear, +3 bone spirit as base + skills. Would provide a +6 to those bone skills and +8 to bone spear!

    Im gonna have a hard time finding this wand though, im currently offering a soj to anyone who has it haha.

    Any other good or even better wands to use, maybe il save an soj...

    *COUGH* NOT TRADE FORUMS *COUGH*

    Ah, bad cold, sorry about that... *whipes phlegm off screen*

    Boneshade is the unique version of white, but of course not as good as the "perfect" wand.

    Black hand key was the 1.09 Fave, but a basic white is still good.

    Just remember... + to skills don't boost synergies, so a +3 Bone spirit and or spear are still great wands.

    For a summoner, Arm of King is probably a good choice. I got it from a guy. I gave him dol + Io.

    Yes, yes you are... due to the way in which the game generates 'staffmods' (ie. +skills on basic items) you will never see a level 1 and a level 30 skill on the same item.

    Since that wand can't spawn, you might consider instead searching for a +3 Bone Wall, +3 Spear, +3 Spirit wand with 2 sockets.

    Good luck on the hunt for the ultimate wand... :)

    Hehe... I do roam the forums occasionally looking for questions to answer :)

    I'm not a mod, just someone with far too much time spent posting...

    sure a white with +3 spear and +3 bs at base is a nice wand but imo a perfect boneshade is better, its like a necros gf, it adds at 4-7 to just about every skill a bone necro uses. what id rather use would be a white with +3 spear, +3 teeth and +3 bone armor as the base skill on the wand. BS is a good skill for pvp, but spear and teeth can do a lot more dmg if thay hit more then 1 thing and dont use up ur mana as fast. other good wand would be a rare with +2 skill and good base skill like bs or spear with mods like +30% or more to resist duel if it can get, fcr, eng

    ps: heart of the oak is not really a wand but its an awsome item to put in ur hand where ur wand would go :D

    "White" runeword is only good for bonemancer.
    Venomancer got much nicer options than "white"
    Blackbogs Sharp and Deaths Web pops into my mind right now. Those two beats "white" any day if we are talking about venomancer weapons.

    What post are you reading???? Kbob's addressing cyberhawk offering his for sale.... Geez get a life and don't take everything so personal....

    Now that the "Rant" is over... READ ALL POSTS>>> we offer info... about your options... Like the first wand you mentioned CANNOT exist... etc.....

    Any how... Decide what spells you want/need and then make that wand a white... just make sure it's bone or higher... yews, and such only allowed 1 socket.

    I use a wizspike for the fcr and the resists on my ladder bonamancer. It also has a 15% resist all jewel in it, so it's quite sweet on the resists.

    ...

    If my boner didn't already have max resists (with enigma) and a +3 spear/+3teeth white, and I needed resists / fcr, I would go for a close to perfect HOTO. Touches on all the things a boner needs, life, resists, and fcr, but comes at a high price for some lower lvl guys.

    I'd say Boneshade is the better option for a bonemancer...the +skills bonuses on a good one are too good to pass up, and Boneshade can be traded for fairly easily.

    I'd disagree about Leoric's being a bad choice for a Bonemancer though, as it comes with +2 PB skill, and a bunch of + to Summons, which isn't the worst thing for a Bonemancer, especially if he's got a few points in skeles/revives.

    Besides which, Boneshade has very steep clvl requirements...a good White wand would suffice, but good luck finding the perfect wand to rune.
