    help! how to get to 75%fcr?

    I'm building a pvp bonemancer (ladder West), and I am having some troubles getting to the 75% bp with my current setup.

    here is what I wear right now:

    +3 bs white wand (20% fcr)
    enigma breast plate
    humonculus
    arach mesh (20% fcr)
    crappy rare +1 necro skills ammy -.- (working on getting a maras)
    trang gloves (20% fcr)
    marrowwalk boots

    that only gives me 60% fcr. the only other options to increase it to 75% that I thought of are these:

    1. change enigma to skin of vipermagi. only problem is, I have base strength (because enig gives so much +str) so without it I won't be able to wear any of my equipment... probably not even viper! lol

    2. get two 10% fcr rings. I actually have 2 on now to get to 75% bp... but I have a bk band in my inventory that i REALLY want to be using (it cost me quite a bit). more dmg, more life... it would be great. So I was hoping to still be able to use the bk band and get to 75%... doing something else.

    3. get darkforce spawn. I don't have one, and I think it'd be pretty hard to get one on ladder that has good +p&b skills on it. plus, it has no resists (well, 19 if I socket it, as compared to 59% of humonc), and in general, the mods of humonc are way better (plus I have one already!). Also, I'm low on funds right now... so I don't know if I could get one if i tried.

    So #1 is pretty much impossible, due to my necro relying on the +str of enigma to wear everything. #2 is fine... that's what I'm doing now, but it really kills me to have this bk ring and not use it. #3 would be expensive, and I still wouldn't have the good mods that I would with humonc.


    Is there any other way for me to get 75% fcr, and still be able to use the bk ring??? Soulless, MM, anyone... plz help me out if you have any creative ideas. thanks!

    EDIT: I have a 2bspirit/2bspear boneshade too, and that's 25% fcr... so with that, I guess I would only have to use 1 fcr ring. but then that's giving up +2 to bspirit, and +1 to bspear (and +10 vitality).... I don't think that's worth gaining a bk ring for.

    craft a +2 necro ammy with 10% FCR. You only loose the resists all from maras. Maras is a nice ammy but not comparable to a nice caster ammy.

    +2 necro ammy with 10% FCR
    Magefists
    boneshade
    Arcanid mesh

    A crafted caster amu can get up to 20% FCR IIRC, that would be the best choice IMO, since it can come with great sidemods as well.

    the reason I wasn't wanting a caster ammy is because it has +2 to necro skills, rather than +2 to all skills. That means my BO from my CtA on switch (ok, still working on getting one of those, but that's my goal) will be 2 levels lower, and i'll have less life.

    That said, I agree that the caster ammy (krime is right i'm pretty sure, 20% fcr is highest on caster ammy) is a good choice, and probably worth it if I can use the bk ring because of it.

    One other option I thought of was using a HotO weapon. It is only +3 skills (so I'd be losing out a lot on skills) but not only does ithave 40% fcr, it has some great other mods too (30-40% res all for example). would it be worth it to use a HotO, or is that taking away too many +skills?

    Thanks for all the replies guys :)

    HoTO is nice, but it might take away some skills, which you don't want.

    And I was almost going to suggest a Wizardspike or Suicide branch too, lol.

    yea, I have those too, but again, they'd take away tons of skills. :xmad:

    I guess I'll attempt to craft a good caster ammy and just deal with the loss of BO. too bad they don't have faster cast charms >.<

    Get your last 15% from a crafted caster amulet - who cares if it has +skills since you only have +1 on your amulet anyway - and who knows, you might get lucky. Aim for an ilvl=40 when crafting unless your able to hit ilvl=90. ilvl 40 gets you +2 tab skills.

    or go with lidless which is cheaper than darkforce's
    anyway necros have such high dmg now that losing 2-3 +skills isn't THAT much, you can still stun and kill most people easily with that
