First time necro in Hell - need some advice My necro is twinked with decent gear, and I want to use him for magic finding. He is a summoner, but now I am trying to decide whether to use Bone Spear or Corpse Explosion as my main support spell. He is level 75 with 15 unused skill points including the hell den of evil quest. I want to be able to do baal runs in the mid-80's, so I want to assume that I will have only 25-30 skill points left. My current build is: 20 Raise Skel 20 Skel Mastery 3 Skel Mages 1 point in almost everything else b/c I wanted to try stuff I get +6 to skills from items, although I will have a Arm of Leoric on switch to buff my army. I will field 10 skels, 5 mages, might merc, clay golem, and revives. This is a pure PvM character, and I like to play alone mostly in 1 player games. I do party with a couple of friends occasionally, but I rarely play in large party games. The way I see it, I could either dump all of the points into Bone Spear or I could max CE. I will need the rest of the points (5-10) to bump up the radius of Dim Vision and add to Summon Resist. I think it would be useful to have a damage spell to speed up general boss and baal killing when there are no corpses around to explode. I have seen bone spear in use because my pally's merc had a bonehew, and it seemed to be quite effective particularly against ghost packs and physical immunes. I assumed this was because it can't be blocked, it pierces, and very few monsters are immune/resistant to magic. Maybe someone can correct me on those points or elaborate. I play faster when I can use left button for support and right button for curses, so I think I would feel more comfortable and have more fun with Bone Spear. But I am concerned than level 26 Bone Spear plus a few (or ideally zero) synergy points will not be useful. I do not want to use Marrowwalks, because I would have to remove my War Travelers. I don't want to spend 10 points in bone synergy either, unless it would really be a difference maker. I already have 1 point in all of the synergy skills except Bone Prison. Can someone please give me some guidance on the allocation of these remaining skill points? Will I be extremely disappointed in the damage from a level 26 Bone Spear against monsters in 1-2 player games?
