    Ondal's Wisdom good for Bone necro?

    Making a pure bone necro (no Marrowwalks, by the by). Traded for an Ondal's Wisdom (+3 to skills, 530 to def, 46 to energy) fairly cheaply the other day. So the question is: is this staff good for a bone necro? I was already planning to not max block, and this thing just seems to solidify the deal. Am I way off base here, or is there potential?

    It is not a bad staff. The mods are nice. But a runeword White wand is better.

    Without a shield you will be forfeiting a lot of mods and resists. Even if you do not use it for blocking the mods of a shield can be nice.

    I agree with post #2. ondal's is DECENT to say the most. Without a shield, you will definitely have a much harder time in pvm let alone pvp. a white wand (runeword) is definitely a cheap alternative for bone necros and will allow you to carry a shield which will be a huge plus.

    Due to the amount of good 1hand weapon, Blizz has made a lot of 2handed things obscure...Ondals=more XP for lvling, and that's about it
