Respect the AI Curses! Respect the AI Curses! I'm getting pretty sick of seeing people time and time again skimping on Curses. About the most extreme case goes all the way to "1 Amp (that's all you'll ever use)" popping up in necro builds. I feel it might be because everyone (especially non-necro or new necro players) have something against skills that don't do damage. Something like "if the number isn't big, it sucks" sorta credo. I watch necro players IRL and online suck royally hard. They can only do one or two things and nothing else. When a Bonermancer is firing away at some Prisoned monsters and some Stygian Dolls jump him from behind, he starts *running away and some other convoluted tricks, when all he had to do was Terror the Dolls and continue firing. My Poison/Summon necro had a rough time in the Chaos Sanctuary, especially against hell extra fast Infector of Souls (I find mass elemental damage screws skeles, like the Council). I don't think I could have beaten his pack without Dim Vision. Period. I can't seem to attach the pic, but as a test I walked my Bowmancer into the middle of some NM Cows where he died in 4 hits. I tried again and used Confuse on all the Cows then started Poison Novas. Many blue potions and some CE's later they died. I think Cows are the ideal Confuse monsters, though Flayers enjoy it too. You need your curses. Learn to use them.
