Okay so I have recently gone crazy and decided to farm the runes for enigma on my untwinked summon necromancer. I had for a long time wanted to make a summoner from scratch and really make him viable, without twinking him. The project was kind of set aside for a long time since any summon necro just eats ass without enigma. A few days ago I just decided to go for it and farm all the runes needed. I did that and managed to also get a CtA for him, although it only rolled 2 BO, it still works. I managed to find Arach and Shako today so he is really steppin his toes up. His gear at the moment is as follows: Spirit sword Rhyme Enigma bp Shako Trang gloves Aldur boots Arachnid mesh 10 fcr 16 str 6 mf ring 32 mf ring CtA + splendor switch +1 nec skills, 12 str 5 fr amulet + a bunch of nice scs farmed from LK Merc: Insight Treachery Tal Rashas helmet Ideally he would want to find some SoJ's, a Mara's Kaleidoscope, Homonculous, Arm of King Leoric or maybe another Ber rune to make a Beast, or two to give my merc an Infinity, and maybe a Bramble ( if that is even benefitable ) He is doing quite well on p3, doing cows, pits, meph, andy, diablo and baal, but once he gets up to p8 where the real XP is gained, he is really really really really slow. Will a summoner with all this ideal gear ever be viable? Am I missing something? Did I waste 25 hours doing LK runs?
