    how would this work?

    i have a necromancer that is SP and full lvl 99, he is doing fine but would like ur opinions on how good it is......

    -skills-



    lvl 1 theeth(needed for posion)
    lvl 1 corpse explosion(needed for poision)
    lvl 20 poision dagger(for synergies)
    lvl 20 poision explosion(for synergies)
    lvl 20 poision nova(main attack)
    lvl 20 skelly worrior(to use)
    lvl 20 skelly mastery
    lvl 1 clay golem
    lvl 1 golem mastery
    lvl 7 summon resist

    my main idea was to...

    ...have the skellys hold the monsters back as i poision them
    ...the skellys would do normal damge to balance out my poision damge
    ...the poision+skellys kill every thimg in sight so it is easy to replace the skellys if neccacery
    ...my merc is a DEF merc,not a might merc,the idea was to have them last longer for me to poision the sh*t out of them

    my items are all sh*t,exept for a venomus ammy that gives +3 to poision and bone and a venomus burnt wand that gives+3 poision/bone and +3 poision nova

    what would u recamend for items?
    ...and stats?

    i started this necro last month in order to see how he would do before i make one of the same stratagie on-line,and now im ready to creat

    rate this necro 1-10 (1= crappyist to 10= perfect)

    Summon resist looks like an overinvestment in hard points to me, I see you ignored the curse tree completely so you really have to rely on your army and poison to save you, still the build looks like a maxed out poison/summon hybrid minus skills. I'm sure some of the others will have opinions on how to improve your build further.

    My tip: get a golemlord's wand or Arm of King Leoric (Unique tomb wand) on switch when summoning the army.

    Since you won't get to lvl 99 (aim for 90 tops, if you get higher = nice bonus skillpoints) you have to cut back somewhere. You also have no curses; Decrepify and Lower Resist are always good (and Amp Damage is a prereq anyway).

    Decide whether you want to be a poison necro with skellies, or a Skelemancer with poison to free up skillpoints.

    For poison, -%enemy resist and +% damage is preferred over +skills; for skellies +skills are needed. 3 Trang Pieces is a good and cheap starting point --- shield and gloves for the poison stuff, and you could use the armor as number 3 to get the +2 summoning. Arm of King Leoric at least on weaponswitch to create skellies, but it does have +2 P&B as well.

    That's the cheap suggestions to think about; "best"(?) poison gear would be Bramble runeword armor and Death Web wand, but both are pricey. "Best" summon gear is gear with a lot +skills, or at least +summon skills --- although you need to balance this with defensive properties such as resists.

    Rating? 5

    Amp damage increases corpse explosion damage by another 50%. One point and you would have been slaughtering things that much faster. You also have no crowd control which must be a pain in the butt in certain parts of Hell when you face hordes of massed ranged units. Two points towards confusion would have made life a lot easier in those situations. Congrats on your SP 99 though. I don't think I'll ever manage that.

    Try to get Trang's Shield, gloves, and another piece (belt ideally) for -25 to poison resists and +25% damage from the gloves. I'd also recommend trying to get a Death's Web. I no idea how hard it is to get one of those on open BNet, but it's effect on poison damage is tremendous.

    Also, are you sure those skills are right? I count 111. Only 110 should be possible.

    The char is from a char editor, so maybe he made a mistake. I don't think the game code itself prevents you from having more skillpoints.

    Also, I don't think he's planning for open bnet --- there is no reason to be concerned about gear there.

    As others have said 90 is probably a good lvl to shoot for, 99 just takes too long in 1.10, especially if you can only play once a week.

    I'd probably shoot for something like this:

    20 Poison Dagger
    20 Poison Explosion (2 prereqs)
    20 Poison Nova
    15 Skeletons
    15 Skeleton Mastery
    1 Clay Golem
    1 Summon Resist (1 prereq)
    1 Amp Dmg
    1 Decrepify (2 prereqs)
    1 Attract (2 prereqs)

    Your Gear could be something like this:

    Helm: Shako
    Weapon: Death's Web/ AoKl
    Shield: Trang's/ +3 Boneflame
    Armor: Bramble or Enigma (depending on emphasis)
    Gloves: Trang's
    Belt: Trang's
    Ring: SoJ
    Ring: SoJ
    Ammy: Mara's
    Boots: Rare with resists.

    Merc Gear (A2 might merc to help out skellies, they dont need defiance)
    Infinity Eth elite polearm
    Duriel's Shell
    Vampire Gaze

    20 Skeleton/10 mastery produces better skeletons than 15/15

    Just a FYI
