    Bone Necro skill plan; need advice

    Hi all! I am making my first Bone Necro ever, and here is how I have planned to spend my skills:

    2- Teeth (1)
    3- Bone Armor (1)
    4- Amplify Damage (1)
    5- Saved (1)
    Den- Saved (1)
    6- Corpse Explosion (1), Dim Vision (1), Weaken (1)
    7- Saved (1)
    8- Saved (2)
    9- Saved (3)
    10- Saved (4)
    11- Saved (5)
    12- Bone Wall (1), Iron Maiden (1), Terror (1), (3 saved)
    13- Bone Wall (2), (3 saved)
    14- Bone Wall (3), (3 saved)
    15- Bone Wall (4), (3 saved)
    16- Bone Wall (5), (3 saved)
    17- Bone Wall (6), (3 saved)
    18- Bone Spear (1), Life tap (1), Confuse (1), Bonewall (7)
    Radamant- Saved
    19- Bone Spear (2), (1 saved)
    20- Bone Spear (3), (1 saved)
    21- Bone Spear (4), (1 saved)
    22- Bone Spear (5), (1 saved)
    23- Bone Spear (6), (1 saved)
    24- Decrepify (1), Attract (1)
    25- Bone Spear (7)
    26- Bone Spear (8)
    27- Bone Spear (9)
    28- Bone Spear (10)
    Izual: Bone Spear (11), Saved (1)
    29- Bone Spear (12), (1 saved)
    30- Bone Spirit (1), Lower Resist (1)

    30+: Max Bone Spear -> Bone Wall -> Bone Spirit -> Teeth

    Final:
    Teeth 20
    Bone Spear 20
    Bone Wall 20
    Bone Spirit 20
    1 in all curses


    There are no points spent in Bone Prison because I am going to use Marrowalk. Will this work out well, or would it be wise to spend points on a Golem or Revives? I really don't want to use skellies because they take too many points to be effective.

    Also, should I just put 118 Str for Marrowalk, or should I do less and try and get Str from equip? Also, should I go for max block or just pump vit like crazy? How much Dex is needed for max block with Homunculus at ~level 85?

    Oh, and this is for PvM, obviously ;)

    Sounds good, but I don't think the 1 in all curses is really needed..Only decripify seems to be the most useful (and its pre-reqs)
    Although you may like to play different.
    Try and get str from EQ, and go for max block usign homunculus. Theres a table for it on one of the guides.
    Just hope bnet don't fix the marrow bug anytime soon ;)
    (I don't use the marrow bug myself)

    I'll probably mule him a Khalim's Will. It has no level or stat requirements, and it should do plenty of damage in Act 1. Once I hit lvl 18 I'll ditch it for a decent wand.

    Don't forget the AI curses. For crowds DV just might be better than Decrep.

    You have the right idea in maxing spear first as that will be your primary damage dealer along with amp//ce. Also you really dont need to go as far as lower resist, unless you plan to party with casters alot. Dim vision certainly helps againt the ranged monsters, particulary gloams. But if you have enough lightning resist (along with Tgods), they wouldnt even scratch you.

    Truthfully, I don't think any curses is necessary. My current necro is 2 points shy from maxing all the bone synergies, so there was no points to spare for curses. He does just fine in 8ppl hell ball runs, sometimes the only one left standing after everyone else died to gloams//ob knights//moon lords//vipers, etc.

    But if you really want curses though, get dim vision. Wonderful crowd control curse, even more than decrep imo.
