    Niceish wand... Use?

    Today I found a +3 to bone spear, +3 to bone prison, and +1 to deceprify wand with 2 sockets (for putting white in). I was also thinking of making a duel necro, and I was wondering whether this wand would be any good for it.

    Would I lose much by using this wand instead of a regular +3 bonespirit or bonespear white wand, since I can't use marrowalks? What is the attitude of players in regards to using the marrowalk's "feature"?

    The feature *DOESN'T* work if I'm using this wand, right?

    Since the wand has +1 to decep, can I scrap putting any points in curses?

    The bug/feature will still work, I think.

    Can somebody confirm this?


    Edit:

    No, it doesn't work... noooooooooo. Bother. Okay, so is the wand any good still?

    For a non bug exploiter it is a very good wand.

    Man that's an awesome wand for a non-marrowalk user. Since you'd need every skill point you can muster, the 4 skills it saves you in curses would be priceless. Not to mention +8 to bonespear ain't too shabby.

    I don't use the Marrowwalk bug (first because I think it's cheesy, and second because I don't have Marrowwalks), and I would love a wand like that. That's pretty close to my ideal Bonemancer wand.

    Yeah, well, that's good to hear :)

    But is it worth not putting anything into curses?

    Will my damage be too low to kill anybody effectively?

    Just out of complete curiousity, I've noticed that there are some items with + to magic absorb and + to magic resist. Is it possible for somebody to max out on said items and nulify my attacks?

    No it isn't curses are your life. You need them.

    No, you will still be able to kill. Just not as fast as an "exploiter". So what if it takes you another minute?

    I will be using a curse, it's just the bonemancers when dueling seem to only ever use 1 curse (I don't plan on doing team duels) and that's decep. My wand will give me +1 to decep. Is that enough?, or are there other curses I'll need?

    Uh... another minuite to kill somebody in pvp :S

    Ack...

    I mean, what I meant was, is there a calculator where I can see the damage with and without marrowalks?

    That silly elemental calculator hates me and it won't let me enter maxed Bone synergies taking into account marrowalks :(

    Only one point into Decrep gives you 4 seconds. This needs to be upped. So more points are advisable.

    I'll PM you the URL for the planner.

    Ah... thanks

    Uhm... so I'll actually need to put more than 1 point in decep?... and I can't just be lax and let the + to skills on homoculus take it up?... (to +5)

    So what level and duration am I aiming for?

    At least 10 in total. That gives a nice duration.

    If your strictly pvp then work the +skills to get the duration you desire from decrep... If you use your bonemancer for pvm at all you will want points into curses outside of decrep
