    My one and only Necro is a Trangs using summoner and he is Godly but i cant compare so there ya go.

    Side note: Bone spirit and trangs seems to be bugged you cant get the cast rate to go up so you may not wanna do more poison/bone if yur furshure gonna use trangs.

    Trang's is great for a Venommancer and for a Summoner...it sucks for a Boner though. I went with a Venom/Summons build.

    i use trangs for my summon/boner and it sucks for a boner but its good for a skelemancer...the thing is that the vamp look has a higher max fps for casting so casting with full trangs is actually slower than with one piece of trangs..lets say the helm missing...its fine though..just about 1/2 the speed when casting anything at all cause the vamp has to lift his hand up and do the fire thing first...i would just replace trangs helm with a shako and maybe the shield with a homo

    There is no difference between walking and running when wearing Trang's. I think this can't be increased via FRW items.

    This can actually be a good thing, so you will actually walk (quite fast too) and have the full Defense bonus and Shield block.

    Yep, that is what most people do. Just walk.

    Partial Trang's works for a Bonemancer as well...though there are certianly better armor choices out there like enigma etc. But if you don't have an enigma handy, certain pieces are very suitable to a Bonemancer's needs. Too bad the helm doesn't give a +skill bonus, and that makes it the least valued piece for a partial setup...though it looks killer on a nec.

    I analyzed once on paper the usefulness of Full trangs vs. Uniques ( I ruled out Enigma and such because the common person is not going to get this.)

    I when all was said and done, the full uniques had +1 more summon skills then full trangs, full trangs has its cool feature and determining on your charms, that +1 doesn't have to be a skeleton, either.

    The set-ups ran:

    Trangs Set
    Gloves
    Armor
    Helm
    Belt
    Wing
    Marrowwalks
    Maras
    2x Sojs
    Arm of King Leoric


    Uniques and such:
    Shako
    Homun
    Arm of King Leoric
    Trangs Armor (Still a good summoner armor)
    Trangs Glove
    Trangs Belt (Or something I forget)
    Marrowwalks
    2x Sojs
    Maras

    Don't have time to do all the formulation, but there yah go.

    If you want to be a summoner, you are the man now. The full trang has huge bonus. Marrowwalks boost your bone armor to ~500 Dmg absorbed. You're not the richest in the realm, but rich enough to ace any situation. Solo Baal? Ask your 4-year-old brother to do it. No problem at all.



    Replace Trang Armor with Enigma and you're perhaps the richest. You lose the scary cool Demon look given by Full trang. But teleing everywhere with an army definitely impresses everyone in the game.

    Nope, no blocking as a ghoul-lord. That's another bug :).

    Actually the Blocking is related to the FHR animation. Can't remember who said it, but it sounded good. I even had a link.

    Why don't you have a look see in the Sticky at the top of the forum? It contains a link to a wonderful PvP Bonemancer guide.
