HoS...need a quikie fav

HoS.., and anyone else who feels like contributing...

I think I saw you once post a Venomancer/Summons build...or was it Venom/Bone? Anyways...if you could repost this build with some tips/suggestions for strategy and gear...I'd greatly appreciate it...

I may actually make this char on US West ladder if possible, but i'd like a little more info before I do.

Thanks much in advance,

i made a poisen summen build and to tell you the truth i didnt like him, i think i just like summing or casting not both, you gotta have a taste for it...
i think he was something like this
20 skel mastery
20 skells
1 revive
20 poisen nove
20 poisen dagger
1 clay golem
1 golem mast
1 summen reist
1 LR curse
1 amp
1 Decrip

and for equip trangs is good...cuz u dunt have to worry bout fcr with poisen not stacking,
or use bramble shako, trang shield belt gloves, deaths web or white wand if u can find one...


i belive HOS build had 1 skel mastery and more poisen synergies...i think it depends if you wantmroe poisen damge or my skell dmg,

hope i helped...later dood

I first started out as a wannaby Summoner, and pit 1 into Skeleton Mastery and got Raise Skeletons to where I had about 6-7 killing for me(with a +3 raise skeleton on beginner wand).

It made leveling alot easier(to me) as a Summoner.

Then focused on my Poison skills. After they was done, finished off Skeletons and then Skeleton Mastery.

I ended up with:
all posion skills maxxed

1 into all Curses(except last 2 on left side)

Skeletons(and working on rest of Mastery) maxxed.

I find my +skills is more than enough for Skeletons, but I figured more damage can't hurt..so Mastery it was.

Basically, after Poison and Curses are taken care of..your ready for duels(though I don't) and needed to spend rest of my points somewhere.

Message me X, and I'll help you.

That seems nice, do you own Hell with that kind of build? I was also interested in this kind of build so could you perhaps tell what equipment you're using? also, is full tran'gs suitable for that kind of build? thanks.

I feel a guide coming on...;)

No, but what HoS said is probrably the best course to take for building a Poison/Skele, with Soultaker making note of how you can go all poison or lean more on skeletons. (Poison probrably a better option.)

The one fallback, in my eyes, of a poison based necro build is the near requirement of certain key peices of equipment.

Listed in order of relative scarcity and importance to the build:

-Trang's gloves (for +25% poison skills damage)
-2 other Trang peices (1 must be the sheild) for the partail set bonus of -25% enemy resistance
-Death Web Elite wand (for up to -50% enemy poison resistance)
-Bramble armor (for up to +50% poison skills damage)

I would build a poison skele in a hard beat (and will eventually :) ) but it would pain me not to have Trang's belt, sheild and Death's web for my character though...The undead, and certain posion immunes in hell, are a pain in the *** without the -enemy resistance stuff.

Full Trang's, with a A Death's web wand especially, is a very good choice for Poison/Skele, allthough your skeletons will respect you less...for looking weird.;)

Thanks much for the info guys...

I think this is the setup I want to go with...trouble is...do I start anew on us west...where I have nothing ..or start this build on us east, where i have some gear that would help jump start this char.

HoS I'd come running to west and join you guys if y'all can help a po' lil' broke a$$ newbie nec with only a chicken bone to his name.

I need to figure out the time difference between us west and east because i'm not playing at 3 am when you all are just signing on...lol. This lil' necro needs his beauty sleep.

I'll message you HoS when I set up accounts and such...k?

P.S. HoS....main reason i'm thinking of going venom/Summon is for a viable Pitrunner...will this build do it? Need to be able to some find items so I can start my reign of terror on US West ladder...

I'm sure you won't much of a problem starting out on west if you can arrange the time. I have a freind who mfs like crazy and is always giving good stuff away, when he plays. I'll have a good mfer set-up pretty soon myself, and I'll definitely be happy to help ya out as much as I can with new stuff. I'm not rich though.:)


As for pit running...I don't know...some people have said they like pit running with a poison mancer but I don't think it wise. Poison attacks are largely item based, and there are alot of undead in the pit too (all those skeletons)...You could try it, I haven't tested that much yet.

My skele/ce mancer does good in the pit if I can manage not to get lag killed.
I do not like mfing with out teleport much though (takes alot longer)...Enigma would be nice..

Poison/skele is a really good char to safely help others through norm an nm though, I know that.:)

I'm either going with a Poison/summons build for Pitruns, or a Teeth setup...problem is...both builds seem to be item dependent...which leaves less room for +MF gear. mayve I should just go with a Skelemancer instead...though I hate the less interactiveness of being what I call a 'desk jockey general' than say, spamming poison novas or bones.

I rock in the Pits,i could do them in about 5-6 minutes...but enjoying killing everything too much.

Norm and NM rushes are too easy...only problem in hell is acts 4-5 with those gloams and the relatives in it. NorM ancients is only 1 PN and NM is only 2-3 mostly(depending om what the barbs have).

My gear just depends on what I like to do really...I never really got into PvP. But mostly it's:

Bramble
Shako(4/5 facet)
Death's Web(5/5 facet)
Trang's Claws, Belt, and Head(perfect Diamond)
Carrion Wind/Soj
StormTreks(no feature here)
+2 Cures(with teleport Ammy)
I don't have any P/B Charms yet

max poison damage is over 7100.

Alot of fun to play...in my opinion.

Just message me *DeadFukker
