    Hedgehog build?

    Well i wanted to check if this build COULD actually work. (PvM)

    Basically its a summon/poison necro using iron maiden and bramble for thorns all in the spirit of damage return.

    Probably maxed Poison tree to take out ranges/spellcasters and then some skeles/revives to tank and deal returned damage to any melee enemies. I Dont know if iron golem could take any part in this but if he can, please tell me.

    I think it could work as my revives have more hitpoints than the enemy would hit and they would get their damage returned about 15-20 fold. Of course some corpse explosion and summon resist boosted by items will be used but mainly deaths web and bramble for Poison damage.

    Im not sure if everything stacks but if it does you could use spirit of barbs charges on bramble for additional damage.

    Opinions? Suggestions?

    I believe these kinds of builds were made in earlier updates, i.e. 1.09 and earlier. But I haven't seen one for the last few years.

    The problems I see:
    - It won't work on monsters doing lightning damage or ranged attackers.
    - It will be very slow.

    In essence, you need a second way to kill monsters, and if you go with poison as you suggest, you might as well make a complete poisonmancer. This will be more effective and (I think) much more fun.
