    Need a for fun build

    Like title says. I just want to have fun with a Necro. The builds I like are...

    Fire Sorc
    Frenzy Barb
    Smiter Pally
    "Bible Basher" (Simply a basher I used the song refrence)
    Javazon (Only when I'm in the mood for range)

    I've heard of a Fishy Necro with Xbows for a wep but I had this thought...

    If you need Dex for hitting monsters won't that greatly degrade your life? If you want dex why not get max block?

    I realize that it uses summons but still. Why else not get max block over damage?

    @zrk: Better music this time. :p

    Berserk Pally is actually quite powerful and is a decent fun build but since this is the necro forum.

    A melee necro wouldnt be too bad. Stick a passion on him max bone armors use the corpse explosions and add in summons and curses.

    Passion will give Berserk and Zeal

    Re: Need a for fun build

    I like it. Although my version of a meleemancer would have been with Spectral Shard and used Poison Dagger as main skill with other poison or bone skills on hand. Mabye a few summons or just a golem...

    I will probly do both of the builds suggested so far. Just the problem is a 4 socketed wep... I'll find it in NM so I'll just do an early game summoner till then.

    Re: Need a for fun build

    If you don't like the crossbow, then how about building a necromancer around something kinda similar... like a Warshrike? I'm assuming, of course, that ladder uniques drop in SP.

    Since you are SP you can fudge versions around to get some interesting stuff. You can also enable ladder-only runewords with a very minor mod that can be found in the SP forum. Here's some highlights:

    Substantial Dex investment. Probably going to need about 300 in order to get a solid base atr and do decent damage with throw, and that will eat into your Vit a little.

    20 Poison Dagger & Synergies. You're basically a daggermancer that throws daggers in addition to/instead of stabbing with them.

    Heavy investment in Bone Armor and Synergies. You'll want to use Bone Wall/Prison to control where enemies move and use Bone Armor to protect your lousy health pool.

    Heavy investment in Dim Vision. Ranged attackers could potentially rip you up.

    100% HCMTF/+2 Necro Skill rare circlet w/ mods you find useful. I'm 90% certain that these items did, at one point, drop, and do not drop in 1.13.

    Razortail Belt (obviously)

    Infinity for your Merc. It will boost the nova damage, dramatically decrease the ATR you need to hit consistently with throw, and increase CE damage. Options for what kind of Merc are Might for damage output or Holy Freeze to help you survive charging into a mob and chucking Warshrikes to trigger and get milage out of the nova.

    Alternatively, you can stick Faith on an A1 Merc. This will help your damage and atr considerably, especially with the added attack speed bonus.

    You can make ladder rw's in sp using RW mod.

    Re: Need a for fun build

    Ok for the like 5th thread in a row, My computer cannot go online. The Usb ports are fried and the net book has no cd drive.

    Anyway back to the real suggestions...

    I found a Witchwild String yesterday.
    2% chance to cast lv 5 amp damage on striking
    Fires magic arrows (No arrows and never misses)
    151% enhanced dmg
    99% deadly strike (based on char lv which is 99 :) )
    All resistance +40

    I like it. Looks fun. not a huge req an it always hits so that takes care of AR. Now with it should I do a Golemancer, Skelliemancer, Reviver, or a fusion of them?

    Re: Need a for fun build

    skelliemancer is most foolproof and powerful choice, others are more of "joke" builds. Poison is good too if you can get trang set parts

    Re: Need a for fun build

    By cannot go online, you mean it can't even download the mod? It's not that big, only about 10mb unpacked on my computer (although I'm running a Mac, it might be slightly different on Windows). If you have any kind of SD card or flash stick you can download the mod to it and port it over.

    Second, AFAIK magic arrows can miss now. The only arrow that never misses is guided.

    Re: Need a for fun build

    Percentage bonus to attack rating is nice, but the Hit Blinds Target +10 and Hit Causes Monster To Flee 25% seem very, very bad for a meleemancer who will most likely not want to override Amplify Damage, Decrepify or Life Tap, whichever he happens to be using at the moment. Doesn't matter against bosses, but I assume that the meleemancer would want to fight the regular monsters as well, and not hand all of them over to the merc and the minions? (In fact, I'd probably prefer to let the merc and the minions handle a lot of bosses, such as manaburners and exploding bosses and extra strong and cursed bosses, perhaps lightning enchanted as well. The list of horrible pain is long.)

    Re: Need a for fun build

    Well, yes, of course it's TheoryCraft. I don't have access to Hellfire Torch and Annihilus and all those perfect Fine Small Charms of Vita and Shimmering Small Charms of Vita, so while it seemed to work very well for you, I figured that people with a lot worse equipment might not fare so well, and might actually need their curses. I know I got seriously annoyed when I played together with a druid whose ravens kept overriding my Amplify Damage, usually only blinding the monsters that we were already figthing, so it didn't help at all.

    Re: Need a for fun build

    In my experience, using 'Fortitude' on a Meleemancer also causes issues in the sense that CA will override BA. It may not be an issue if your Meleemancer is twinked to the teeth, but losing your 400 damage protection suit might hurt in a random battle if you're not as fortunate with wealth. :p

    Also, ANY NECRO BUILD, and I stress, ANY NECRO BUILD that has 1. some way to kill 1-3 monsters and 2. has ~20 CE and 3. uses CE liberally is guaranteed to work fine.

    See here for proof. His Necro literally does nothing. His mercenary Rogue gets 1-3 kills, he uses CE and kills everything else.
