    hidden feature is actually a bug where if you dont put points into bone prison, the level 33 charge it has counts as a synergy and boosts your damage like mad, downside is you cant spam bone prison (which is an anti zon and desync hammerdin skill)

    as for which is better... i prefer hammerdin because they are more all around, necros tend to fall to good orb sorcs and es light/fire sorcs and almost any good barb.

    I think a Hammerdin is also better for all around. But, versus Bowzons...they're a pain in the butt. Hammerdins have to get into melee range for the Hammers to hit...so it's a pain trying to Charge up to them.

    botd+ss already beats zons, throw on doom and its auto win
    just using ss and telehammering them will beat 95% of them too if you have max block and at least 3.5k life with 125%fcr.

    Stricktly for PvP... Bone Necro, it's one of those builds on top of the food chain IMO...

    For PvP and PvM Hammerdin would be the obvious choice, since not only are they great PvPers when played right, but they are by far, the best PvMers...

    bone necro > hammerdin. Hammer is a good defensive skill, but horrible for offense. Even though it does tons of magic dmg.

    If you can desynch charge good then go for hammer imo, can kill most.

    hammerdins are what you make of them. if you play with them by just running around and desyncing all day, yes it will be come a defensive build. as for me.. im usually the agressor against my opponents (exceptions are 5 doggie windies, smart blizz sorcs, and minion stacked necros, in these duels it becomes a cat and mouse game)

    Well, if the bone necro keep spawnning spirit and teeth, then it will be hard to dodge as bspirit turn to invisible as well. And necro spawn a lot faster than hammerdin.

    go for bone necro. It's so much more fun than a hammerdin. All you do for a hammerdin is cast bh and tele. As for a necro, you can use bone spirit, bone spear, or bone cage. It has a lot more variety.

    bit more complicated than that if you want to kill anyone good.

    but i do enjoy stand-still-spamming hammerdins.
    telezerking them is fun

    in a 1on1. hammerdins can tank 3-4 good bs. necros can tank 2 at max.
    spaming rate may be 1 frame faster for the necro so its not "much" faster at spaming than hammerdins. in many cases, when i would tele on a bone necro, the bs would deal no damage to me for some reason (dunno why), giving me a chance to get in 1-2 hammers for an easy kill.

    btw i always cast oak against necros for minion stack.

    That's why all the pubs use bs. (do u mean spear or spirit?) Spirit sucks against range char, (i only use for the dysench or playing defensively) I always use spear (teeth against fast teler) cuz it travels a lot faster than spirit. Beside, at higher lvl, spear deals more dmg and cost less mana. (up to average 7000 with marrow if u achieve lvl52+)

    you can always grab some monsters with magic immune though....but i think it is useless against hammerdin since hammer hits u anyway.
