    For Mad Mantis: The Weaken esruc

    I seems like it would be fun to talk about the Weaken c u r s

    Here are some definitions I collected for Weaken from a variety of sources

    "Decreases the damage the target can do.
    Damage is decreased 33%
    Mana Cost: 4"


    - Diablo II Tomb of Knowledge

    "Decreases the damage the target can do. Damage is decreased by 33%.
    Opinions: "Useless"

    - LOD Encyclopedia

    "The bane allows the Necromancer to sap the strength from his enemy. Enemies are enfeebled to the
    point that their blows become ineffective."

    -Diablo II game manual

    The only reason I can think about for putting Weaken in the skill tree instead of in the ad banner is every character must have 30 skills.

    My suggestion for Blizzard, or Billizard North (oh, those people can still tell the directions, good) is designing a new curse. You curse the monster, and after the monster's killed it dropps a mushroom. The Necromancer eats the mushroom and grows bigger.

    The true tale of the Weaken is still a mystery to most men. Long and hard hours of study have been spend on trying to discover the terrible truth about Weaken. This story is not for the faint of heart. So ye be warned.

    Thus begins the truest tale about the unspeakable one. The bane known as "The words of curse causing enfeeblement and loss of strength†or Weaken for short.

    For in the beginning of the creation the entity known as the “coder†slaved to create a godly creature known as Necromancer. The “coder†worked long and hard. His creation was the finest in all of Sanctuary. In the first days of Sanctuary the Necromancer only had his minions to do his bidding. He ordered them to patrol the lands and keep evil at bay. But evil cheated. They introduced Dr00ds. The “coder†saw that the epitome of creation could use help so he gave him the Bone Skills. This helped. The good triumphed over evil and the Dr00ds were defeated. Again evil cheated. It send forth the Trapz-Azn. Our mightiest of warriors was struggling. In order to help him rid the world of this terrible plague the “coder†gave to the Necromancer a way to fight his enemies. He gave the Necromancer the ability to take away the powers of his enemy in the form of curses. Now his magnificent power was in harmony. All the evil that came before our Hero fell. Not even Hammerdins, the foulest creatures in all of creation could bring down our Necromancer.

    Then the apocalypse came about. During something called a “patch†the powers of our Hero changed. His most powerful of curses “Weaken†changed from a curse able to bring about the complete and utter destruction of his foes to the crap you see before you know.

    No I beleive he was referring to the mario bros. there. I was skeptical of the nature and direction of his blizz basshing until that last point and comment.
    Well done cerebron.

    Quite a tale there as well Mantis. Nice font.:cool: Ever read The Redemption of Athalus?


    We seem to be having a Necromancer Renaisance here of late. I'd say keep it up but that's the choice of each and every man.:drink:

    Yes, because the technology back then was amazing. The goombas were smarter than revives, for example.

    And I actually found a use for weaken. I didn't have decrep yet (lvl 20) and I had to play mojomancer because me and a melee char were doing the ancients and my skellies had died (because I did...lol) so I weakened whatever ancients he wasn't attacking and life tapped the one he was attacking. This is the first time since 'testing' the curse years back that I have hotkeyed it (even for a breif time), and the first time ever I had found use for it.

    He was a low lev too so it took FOREVER (i was almost late for schoo :hanky:, good thing no cops were on the road :uhhuh: )

    Does weaken cound before PDR? Most of my mercenaries are issued standard quality, hand made by mephisto, Blackleach blades. Helps them survive more often than not =D.

    I never played the Mario series until Yoshi came along...

    Rather than get a mushroom curse, why not just fix weaken to make it |337 or something like that?

    Here is what I would do...

    Kill Weaken. Just strip it out of the tree... one less pre-req BUT then drop Blood Mana down as a curse, but make it work different for monsters and make is slightly less affective for PvP, such as 60% Life 40% mana for the cost of a skill.

    So Orb sorc equal say 10 Mana to cast a bolt of ice or w/e sorcs do and that would cost them 6 life and 4 mana.

    Let us all spam Blizz till they do this. MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!
