Patriarch Luumyrkky, Poison/Bone Hybrid Necro

Hello again :smiley:

I found some time ago wand with 2 poison nova and 2 bone spear. Immediately I wanted to build a hybrid around it and today, he killed Baal. Here's Luumyrkky posing next to Baal's corpse.

So, what is my hybrid? Let's start with skill and stat layout:

20 Poison Nova
20 Poison Dagger
20 Bone Spear
20 Bone Wall
8 Bone Prison (maxing this at the moment)
1 in Poison Explosion, Teeth, Bone Armor and Corpse Explosion

0 in Curses and Summoning trees.

Strength: 58
Dex: base
Vitality: 387
Energy: base

Life: 1278
Mana: 544
Resists: 80/75/75/75

Yep, all skills are in PnB tree. The only way I wanted to do it. I've found a very nice +5 Lower Resist wand ages ago, so it's used also with my Trang-oul poisonmancer. That combined with 'Splendor' head with +3 Decrepify, I needed no points in Curses. I don't like Necro's summons anyways, so that was easy decide not to use that tree.

So, was it good build? Hmm, not very good. It was actually almost decently effective all the way to act3 Hell, but those last two acts were quite difficult. Bone Spear killed PI's with ~5-10 shots. But on the other hand, I was pleased with Poison Nova. Usually 2-3 Novas killed everything, when I used LR. Didn't much try PN without LR. But here is some damage numbers:

Bone Spear: 1999-2102
Poison Nova: 4480-4613

Not very massive, right? But I didn't expect much better. How about we check his gear now?

Gear is not so expensive, if you cut out Soj's and Mara's and possibly those skillers. I think I could've managed without those, but I want to reach lvl40 skills to use. Merc died awfully lot, I should've changed his gear a bit, but I didn't actually know how. Perhaps Glad's Bane would've helped him to face Physical attackers. Or just few levels to make him safer.

Drops, nothing special, Hell HF was Hel :angry: and can't remember NM HF anymore, but nothing fancy I promise :rolleyes: Overall, he didn't see much Green or Golden items.

I wouldn't recommend this build, if you're not prepared to lowish damage. Sometimes it felt like it took forever to kill some Poison Immune, but then again, I liked snipering those Bone Spears. And playing him was both fun and challenging. But I admit, this kind of Hybrid doesn't work for many people here.

I know, I'm sure I forgot something so ask and I'll answer. Thanks for reading.

Props for trying something new. Sometimes I long for 1.09 where it was possible to play these builds and be just as powerful as any other build. Oh well.... nice job!

Re: Patriarch Luumyrkky, Poison/Bone Hybrid Necro

Much like me and Hrus warned you. Starting with act4, Hell monsters get a lot more life and resistances. Bone skills alone are already quite underpowered, and there is no way to lower enemy magic resistance :sad2:

I have parked my bonemancer at clvl90 after doing a few runs during Baalathon. He's just too slow compared to most other characters.

Poison works better thanks to the LR curse, and since bosses can't get additional resistance from their mods, they retain the base PR value of their species. It takes the most expensive stuff to make some serious harm, though.

Nevertheless, congrats on the new pat :thumbsup:

Congrats!
I love the way you name your characters! You don't have to think what char does when you read the name :wink:

I name my characters usually like :
IK Whirler - Pajavasara
Bear druid - IsoKarhu

Ah that might be my mistake I was trying this with bone spirit instead of bone spear and using bone spear as a synergy instead of bone prison.

congrads by the way nice pat.
