So all it is, is a Skelemancer with a ton of auras. With the option of changing into a bear and totally whooping up with regular attack.Pherdnut said:Check out the Commandomancer Guide. The idea is to combine the fanaticism aura with the might merc so you and your skellies can go to town. If you get Pride for the concentration aura it is apparently godly. I'm more lazy though so I'd rather use faith and occasionally shoot things from behind the cover of my skellies.
No kidding man, I wish I was rich like thatPherdnut said:Well it was still considered quite powerful even before the new runewords so I wouldn't be afraid to try it the second you get yourself a Beast. The poor man's Commandomancer uses the charged lvl 16 Heart of the Wolverine summon from Oath and can choose to synergize Oath's 30% chance to activate bone spirit attack if he so desires. There was a Hard core player here a few weeks ago combining everything she could. She was using Oath and then putting on Whisp Projector when she switched out to Beast, prebuffing with CTA, then summoning with AoKL, and then switching to Beast. I can't remember if she had Pride or not but those would be some insane skellies.
Yeah dude, this I could do although the holy shock wonbt go onto my skelies I will still have it. So, if I decide to go bear I could do some death and my buds and merc will have some lightning too. I love NecrosDecebal said:If u play ladder here is how u can equip your necro and merc
Main char - Necro
Necro - Beats rw in BA which gets Fanaticism
"Santas little helper" - Your merc
Act 2 merc from NM - Migh merc bossting damage
Weapon - Pride, which gives concentration aura. Antoher alternative is Infinity which gives CONVICTION. But i think Pride is better due to more damge to your party and yourself. Use eth cryptic axe, eth tresher or eth Colossus volgue. CA and Tresher is harder to find eth and with 4 sockets.
Armor - Bramble gives Thorns aura (can be made in Eth armors if u want and are uber rich to spend your runes)
Helmet - Many options here. If u want another aura tou can use Dream (ladder only) which gives you lev 15 Holy shock! But you DR and life lecch so i guess Eth Gaze is a very strong option. Otherwise u might use Andariels visage, Tals mask, Guillames face, Crown of thieves (eth if posible), Rockstopper, Eth Shako and many more!
So like it was said above you can have the following auras stacked:
Fanaticism + Might + Concentration (conviction) + Thorns + Holy shock
LOL...granted you probably said that in jest...but no matter how rich I was...I'd never make a IG with infinity...becuase I'd never use IG.Pherdnut said:Eh... just make an infinity Iron Golem Everybody has a Ber, Mal, Ber, Ist to spare if he dies or gets lost right?
And no, before anyone asks, Holy fire/lightning/cold damage auras do not transfer to skellies.
