Few Questions from 1st time Necro I got my MF sorc where I wanted her and started a necro this weekend. Hes a Summoner (Skellie/Golem/Revive) on ladder USEast and I have a few questions before I keep going with him. 1) Do items with +mana per kill give me mana when the skellies/golems/revives kill things ? 2) Does my gear help the pets ? IE : Armor or Items with ED and faster attack speed. I saw someone mention Beast Runeword to help minions hit harder and faster but that was the first thing I ever saw about this. Is this correct ? Do things that I have like leech and other gear affect this as well ? Would Frostburn gloves add Cold damage ? 3) I noticed that when I have my full army out and switch from Leorics Arm to Buriza (I like to plink things) I loose some pets because my skill level drops. Does this affect things like Mastery as well ? Do the skellies loose power because I switch away from my wand ? I am thinking not but want to make sure. 4) I use an Iron Golem and want to see if I am understanding him correctly. I use a weapon to summon him, but does he take ALL his stats from that weapon ? For example if I use a 50-100 weapon with 6% life leech does he hit for 50-100 and have 6% leech or is there some formula for this ? I see that he has base stats but how exactly are those affected by the item he is made by ? Thats all for now and thanks in advance, I may have more questions later. I must say I am having fun with this build, I had problems killing the Normal bosses (duriel was a LONG fight and dont get me started on Diablo), but on Nightmare I am having no isues at all; I lost no minions to Duriel on NM.
