Need help with new guy.

I'm creating a new charactar named Knuckles. He is not allowed to wear anything that changes his outward appearance. That means no weapon, no body armor, and no shield. Circlets are the only kind of headgear he can use, and almost all of his defence is going to be from belts, boots, and gloves. (Since that's all a boxer wears, that's where I got the name.)

Distribution of points:
Stat points: (minimums)
2 to strength every 3 levels
3 to dexterity every 2 levels
1 to vitality every level
1 to energy every level

Skill points: (before extras from gear)
Maxed Bone Armor.
Golem mastery & summon resist to at least 10.
Bone Wall, Poison Nova, Attract, and Decrepify to at least 5.

If I decide to have skeletons I'll max out the Mastery.

Merc: In this case, "Monster Bait" is going to be the main part of their job description, meaning they will need to be able to stand around and get clobbered. That means the Rougues won't work, since they're totally chicken-****. I can't decide between Act 2 & 5.


I'm looking for suggestions on what to look for on my gear, as well as which Golem to use. Thanks.

If you actually want to kill things you'll want as much OW and CB as you can find. Then you'll need resists. A lot of Resists. If that is covered you'll need FHR. Boatloads of FHR. Try to get some Angelic Halo's and an Angelic Wing.

The Golem should be a Clay Golem, because he Slow tough things like Act Bosses.

If I were you I would Max Bone Prison and Bone Wall. Max Decrep.

Use a Clay Golem..he would make the best and cheapest punching bag for you.

Currently he's level 18 with a level 13 combat (Prayer) merc. He killed Andy at level 15, but has been repeatedly killing act 1 bosses with players 3 active for XP.

Skills: 1 in all available except skel mastery and skel mage
2 in golem Mastery
rest in bone armor

Has several charms, has used imbue on nice boots, found good spear for merc.

Need suggestions on which curses to max, which golem to use, what item to aim for when creating Iron golem, etc. Thanks.

as said before use clay golem for Knuckles. Why put points into dex at all if you're not using a sheild or weapon? Those points are useless then. I'd pump them into vit.

As Mad Mantis said, max decrepify

don't you still need dex to hit things even when you are only using fists?
That, and you need major dex to keep from getting hit when the monsters fry your golem and merc. No armor means you hurt when you get hit.

I have friends who can get me (almost) anything I want, so I have a few questions:

What kind of affixes should I have on:
  • my merc's spear and armor
  • my boots, gloves, and belt
  • my Iron Golem's item
What kind of item should I use when I create the Iron Golem?
Should I change mercs? If so, when and what? (Nightmare, barb, etc.)

totally alone. Find my thread in the OTF about my FUBARed computer.

Same way everyone else does: Curse and swear while my merc and golem whale on him. I have a "circlet of pestilence" (50/3) someone gave me, so I can run up and hit him a few times, too.
