    Poisonmancer need help

    Im thinking about starting a poisonmancer. With max nova, explosion, dagger, lower res and then maybe corpse explosion.
    For gear i was thinking deaths web, bramle and trangs gloves.

    I was wondering if this built is viable in hell with this gear?

    Umm, that has been done successfully countless of times before, so the answer must be yes.

    I just hope you are wise enough to use stuff like Attract to keep the heat off yourself and your mercenary.



    And now a little question: Do you actually have a Death's Web? If not, you can still get by with Trangs and maybe a Poison Facet or two.

    A pure Poisonmancer is a pretty expensive build, but viable.

    GO FOR IT, if u have the equip go for it, i have one, and is going very fine, it does 3800 poison damage, and the synergies are not maxed yet.

    mine is a poison necro block, i use :

    blackbogs (dont have the other wand that gives -25% poison resist to monsters)
    peasent crown(dont have shako)
    viper (dont have enigma)
    homunculos socked PT
    trangouls gloves
    marrowwalk boots

    and its enought i guess of course if i have shako and enigma and the wand its was better, but hes going fine like that.

    my necro is lvl 66 and yesterday i was 46 and i did all nightmare difucult with 3 friends, and the necro (me) was crazy, with the block and the max resists he is very fine

    greetings

    read my poison /summon guide. i'd see it as being helpful. for a poison only necro, i'd imagine a holy freeze merc to be your best friend. You will have some insane difficulties in hell, as some of the poison immunities can be insanely tough.

    that is where my skellies came in.

    For pure poison, i'd imagine skills to work like this:
    max p dagger
    max p explosion
    max p nova
    1 teeth
    1 ce
    1 bone armor
    max bone wall
    1 ea curse

    gear:
    shako
    maras
    deaths web
    trangs gloves
    bramble (#1) / enigma(#2)
    soj / bk ring
    arachnid mesh
    marrowalk
    homonculus (p.diamond)

    charms:
    1 anni
    at most, 8 pnb charms (to leave room for cube in case you find something good)

    stats:
    strength: at least 118 for marrow's (unless bramble has higher req)
    dex: enough for 75% block
    vit: rest
    energy: none

    I think that should do you find. Again, find a way to get around the poison immunes, which are plenty in hell.

    I have to disagree...with deaths web and lower resist there isn't many poison immunes I can't "break" deal with. To be honest thought I don't run ws2 with this guy, but he is the fastest at cleaning out the pit even in multiplayer games. Puttin all your points in poison and wall ..you own... The wall won't break and if it does just recast...I also like all waay better than skells cuz I can put the wall where I want it. Tip before entering an area...cast a wall...the monsters will go to the wall first. Oh and this guys equipment list is pretty extravagent...but as a pure poison guy..you do NEED deaths web...the -40 to -50 resistance is mandatory.

    Before your wall gets up to snuff...attract is also your best friend.

    My setup owning hell with little difficutly:

    shako (peasant crown is fine tho)
    +3 pb ammy or good +2 necro ammy
    viper....don't need the fast cast but the resists are nice
    homon...yes you need this
    deaths web (need this too but blackbogs will get you to hell easy)
    spidey sash...not nessary but nice...glooms would do fine as well
    marrowalks..yes I exploited the "bug" why not
    rings...i had resist and mana rings... nothing special
    trangs gloves...these are huge for a pnec...easy to get too.
    one pb charm...thats right one...
    mana and life charms....
