Cerebron's Hypothetical Gear for Blacksouls First of all, not everyone dies when seeing the Blacksouls. You know, Dim Vision, zigzagging, blah blah. Second of all, not only those who SUCK die with the Blacksouls. I bet every Necro has some kind of bad memory with the Souls. See some lightning and spawn in town. Never happened to you? Hehe, probably not. I've been spending a very long time on finding a solution. Souls are too annoying. I started with firing Bone Spirits far away and hoped they hit the Souls. It didn't work. In this threat I'd like to suggest another way. It's all hypothesis. I didn't even start to test it. It's very simple. If you wear the following gear, you should gain 100% resistance against lightning. There are other variations, but let me just focus on this gear. Guardian Angel +15% to all Max Resistance Thundergod's Vigor +10% to Max Lightning Resistance A shield socketed with pTopazes. However, what I remember is 100% Lightning Resistance doesn't mean "Immune to Lightning." The player's resistance should be something like diminishing return. If you can help me find the formula, I'd appreciate. A con might be wearing this gear would affect your skill levels. But for a summoner it's not a big deal. My MF gear is all made of pTopazs and it doesn't give me ANY bonuses. I can solo Baal with no problem. Another idea is to build a gear that gives 100% Resistance to all elemental attacks. That would make the Necro pretty tough in places such as Trav. It seems pretty hard to boost all max resistances to 100% unless using some precious runes, which would be a waste. I welcome all suggestions and comments.
