    rare necro shield

    hey,

    i had planned on making a commandomancer using a homonculus but then i found this:

    fiend rock
    unraveller head
    defense: 19
    +2 poison and bone
    +3 bone spirit
    +1 decripefy

    + 1 blood golem
    15% fast block rate
    10% increased chance to block
    adds 5-14 poison damage
    81% enhanced defense
    replenish life +5
    +5 mana
    level 3 nova (27 charges)

    would this shield be better suited for a commandomancer than a homunculus? if not do you think this is worth trading?
    im thinking if i use this shield my resists would be horrible and i would need a lot of dex for max block compared to homonculus...
    maybe use the rare shield for an artillery necro??

    thanks for any input,

    Duy.

    depends. the homunculus is so great because of the easy obtainable max block and resists, this one just lacks resist, but wouldnt it be nice for a summon bone hybrid that can hide behind his army

    Homunculus is better, unless you use that shield to spam BSpear in PK duels.

    Homunculus
    Hierophant Trophy

    +2 To Necromancer Skills
    +2 To Curses
    +150-200% Enhanced Defense
    30% Faster Blocking
    +40% Chance to Block
    +20 to Energy
    +33% Mana Regeneration
    +5 Mana After Each Kill
    +40% Resistance To All

    O wait... +1 Decrep... that'd be good for having decrep for duels instead of putting like 5 pts. into curse just to have Decrep... I still like the 40% Res from Homunculus much better though.

    ya the point in decrepify saves a few skill points also.

    Really more of a Bone Spirit Bonemancer's rare although most BMs would probably prefer a +5 BS. You do save a couple points with decrep, but at the cost of 40 resists to all and high block.

    You could have the rare head on switch for the best of both worlds (somewhat)

    Is that head lvl 30 req? If so its a very wanted item by lvl 30 duelers. Ive personally heard many search for such a head.

    +2 all on a lvl 30 head? That doesn't sound likely. +2 BNP probably but not +2 all.

    Edit: NM it IS BNP.

    Homunculus

    In theory one could find a +2 necro head (Necromancer's prefix) with
    1) Deflecting suffix (30fbr/20icb)
    2) Prismatic prefix (20res all)
    3) Mechanic's prefix (2 socks)
    4) Equilibrium suffix (17% fhr)
    5) Mammoth suffix (40 life)

    *and* spawn with +3 spirit, spear and bone armor. On a Heirophant or Bloodlord skull thats 52% block with the option of slapping elds, bers,ums, shaels etc on this beast :p
