    Is this head any good?

    I recently found a rare nerco head with a large number of mods on it. I know about half of them are useless but do you see any potential in this?

    Rare Unraveller head
    Def 6
    Block 48%
    +30% faster block rate
    +20% increased block
    5-14 poisen dmg/3 sec
    +1 Bone Prison
    +2 Attract
    +1 Poisen explosion
    +1 Strength
    Fire Res. 10%
    Attacker takes damage of 3
    Socketed (2)

    Thing that caugh my attention was the sockets.

    It all depends on your clvl. I don't think any Hell players would keep the head, but it's absolutely a godly items to some beginners.

    The skill bonuses don't really matter. They don't focus on the synergies. And... just say they suck.

    The best part of the head is the two sockets. Inserting two perfect topazs may help you out against some crazy lightning monsters. But not really that much compared with other items. The only runeword for 2 socket shield is rhyme:

    Cannot be Frozen
    40% Faster Block Rate
    20% Increased Chance of Blocking
    Regenerate Mana 15%
    +25% to all Resistances
    +25% to Magic Find
    +50% Extra Gold from Monsters


    I don't see how good the runeword is, either.

    My suggestion is that if you've passed clvl 50, just sell the head or donate to lower level players. You want something better.

    Although rhyme is a good runeword, please do not try to make it in your head. Runewords DO NOT work on magic, rare, unique, or set items.

    2 P Diamonds in that head will carry you through most of nightmare....

    Mercs level REALLY SLOWLY in normal. Hire an act 2 nightmare merc when you get there, he should be able to keep up level wise.

    Thank you for correcting me. It's very easy to forget.

    Yes you have to take care to keep your merc up with you between levels 12 to about 30 in Normal. If you let him (or her) get too far behind they get almost no experience. Just go back to an earlier level and let them do almost all the killing for half an hour - just summon a golem and maybe 1 sleleton. Boring I know but worth it in the end. Once they catch up they never fall behind again as long as you resurrect soon after they're killed.

    it takes more than a half an hour. They do level horribly slowly in norm even when fighting baddies with mlvl close to their clvl.

    The 2 sockets are nice but you can only put P Diamonds or cheap jewels in them since it's rare (i.e. no runewords) and the key mod on a necro head for me is plus skills and in Nightmare or Hell you need +1 all skills or better at least although it does depend what sort of Necro you are to some extent.

    So sorry it's not much use :(
