    Bone/curse necro skill questions...

    Im making this necro starting from scratch... the idea is standard bone necro with no summons (not even a merc) with the AI curses

    Besides the bone synergies... should i put pts into bone armor? to help b prison/wall?

    the curses ill mostly be using are confuse, dim vision, and attract, how many pts should i put into each of these?

    DV needs a total of 16 points in Hell. This includes +skills. So be careful when you put points in this. Confuse needs a total of 15 points. And Attract needs a total of 8 points in Hell including +skills.

    Since you do not have a Merc you will need to use the curses, Bone Armor and Bone Wall/Prison to keep the monsters away. It is therefor a good idea to pump Bone Armor, but make sure that you pump Bone Wall and Bone Prison first.

    Dealing with MI will be very difficult.

    Because they get their duration cut. The duration of these curses gets cut in half in Nightmare and quartered in Hell. So a level 16 DV lasts 37 seconds in Normal, but only 18,5 seconds in Nightmare and 9,25 seconds in Hell.

    No

    Putting points into armor is considered a waste, and you'll find that your wall/prisons will last their entire duration in nightmare, and especially in hell, because their life goes up dramatically between the difficulties.
