Skeleton Lag

Hey guys. Everytime i play with my nec people yell at me to quit summoning skeletons bc of the horrible lag, but without them all i have is basically a blood golem and bone spear which causes me to die easily. Should i ignore them and do it my way or find a differnet necro build?

If you are working together with your party, the front line warriors can protect you
(PS: let them be your skeli ^^!) use curse spells to help.
The no. of skeli needed depends on situation, if your members are not strong enough to tank, raise some skeli to help.
I have an experience that my party members keep on dying, may be their gears are bad, then I summon all I can to help them recover corpse.
Non-spell caster is fragile when naked..lol

That's what I do also, but also throw in: Poison vine(great for extra lag),5 ravens(just because I let my pets loose once in a while), and either SoB or How(just for kicks), add that with 22 total Skeletons and 12 Revives.

And I'm able to cause alittle havok with some people on cable(Thanks Hammer :drink: ) People who are on dail up- I own. :buddies:

Personally I love "lagging others" When I enter with my powerful army of 13 skellies. they start their cryin.... I then summone 8 mages :).... they cry more. Then I look for the really complicated animation revives. Serpent magus, gloams, venom lords, dark lords (vamps).... so in all I got a 12 warrior, 8 mage, 20 revive and an oak sage running round and my merc spammin bone spears all over......

They start griping about lag.... I squelch and then curse and spam my lvl 27 CE... after lister dies and no one is scratched they shut up.


Keep in mind I only cast revives when ppl are griping about lag. :D

this thread does my heart good

yes, of course, ignore them or cause them even greater anguish, necromancers have an image to maintain

Damn the lagging, full summons ahead!

Tell them Jack ****, and Jack left town.

I say it depends on who you are playing with in a pub, some people are polite and for them if the party doesn't need the summons I will drop them quick. If you have several chars already tanking, or who have minions likes shadows/valks tanking you don't really need many minions.

As for the arses who start whining tell them straight up to upgrade their system/connection or quit whining about it. A decent system can handle the load and keep a decent fps, their lack of a decent computer or unwillingness to upgrade isn't your problem.

A good deal of the problem people have with necros now has to do with the item glut that wasn't there at the beginning of the ladder season. Now that the spoiled brats have their precious "itamz" and they don't have to rely on a necro to keep their childish little arses out of a sling they complain. *sighs* I still remember the early ladder season, "THANK GOD A SUMMONS NECRO!" If we get a reset we might hear those words again. If not then there is only one thing left to do, show the little buggers just how much lag you can toss their way if you really want to. And hey its always fun to lag a whiner with your powers of latency and make them drop from sheer system overload. :D

He meant combined Skeletons and Mages. With +skills, you can get a few more than with just maxxed out skills.
