Just starting up on Ladder Alright, so I've decided that I'm sick of not having all the Ladder-only runewords available to me... and more importantly, all the ****** dupes. So, I'm moving to Ladder, starting out with a summoner necromancer for the pits. Straightforward, right? I'm thinking about going with : 20 Raise Skeleton 20 Skeleton Mastery 20 Skeleton Magi One point wonders : Amp, weaken, terror, decrep, clay golem, golem mastery, summon resist, blood golem, iron golem about 1-5 points in revive, depending on how much I can support And everything else I get into corpse explosion Unfortunately, for the gear I have planned, I can't imagine having a whole heck of a lot of +skills. In fact, unless I get some kind of ridiculous drop early, I won't have any. My gear would look like : chance guards (Doesn't matter what %, mostly for the gold) Wealth in any armor up to 110 strength 3pdiamond sheild amulet doesn't matter, probably pris 2x dwarf stars helm for resists, probably a 3os bone visage if I can get one with whatever resist runes I feel I need for the pit or Travincal marrowwalk boots if I can get them, anything with walk speed and/or resists until then 2x lem'ed alibaba Goldwrap One of my friends hooked me up with a Gheeds.. 89/15/33 I think. With all this gear, at level 80, I should have somewhere around 1200% goldfind. My main targets would be pits for items/goldfind, and travincal for goldfind primarily. It should also be capable in cows if I can get to about level 80, with the high level of corpse explosion. My merc will use whatever I can find for him, but the main thing I'll be looking for will be a polearm of some sort so I can put Insight into it, to help with the corpse explosion and revive spammage. Does this build look like it'll work? I haven't actually played a summoner through since 1.09, so I'm not certain how well it'll hold up. It's a relatively inexpensive build, the only things that are of worth are the 3x lem, 1x ko, and 2x dwarf stars... and even the DS's can probably be gotten for a couple of gems each. The +life will undoubtedly be helpful, as will the fire absorb when I hit travincal... and with this build's focus being on gold for gambling (I'll be making an Edge bow, and probably gamble rings/coronets primarily, since I don't expect my level to get high enough to handle a decent chance at +2 skill amulets) the 100% goldfind on each is just beautiful. Any advice would be greatly appreciated - and if anyone has some of the gear I need and would be willing to trade USeast scl --> useast scnl, let me know what you're in search of, please.
