Skeletons leeching exp??

I just heard from another player that the skeletons a necro raises take a certain percentage of your experience points. Is this true?

However, he said that golems and revives do not take any exp off the necro at all.

I've never ever heard of this, even though i have been playing for 6 or 7 years.

Am i just amazingly uninformed? Or was the player spouting a load of bull?

Thanks guys and sorry if this is something i really should know by now lol!

That's odd... my skeleton's discussions are all different

Skeleton1:"Hey how come you've got an extra kneecap?"
Skeleton2: "Uhh... what?"
Skeleton1: "Anyone missing a kneecap here?"
Revive1: "MooMoomoo... moomoo moo..."
Skeleton3: "Could you shut up for a while? This is dead serious"
Revive1: "Moomoo moo?"

And so on... wish they had something more intelligent to say...

At least you don't have to deal with your fire mages trying turn your clay golem into a fire golem.. :(

my skeles got in a fight once... one had leveled up and was using a Titan-Skele build (ill post it later ^.^) and just got enuff str for a sacred armor. he was barelling around with it on when one of the str-glitched skelemages (pure vit) realized he wanted a cool one-shoulder armor. so he tried taking it and it broke his legs under the weight.

Skelemage was Slain by Falling Sacred Armor

*Big skele re-equips it*

Lol, this thread is hilarious :badteeth:
Seriously, I have given up try to rise skellies to help in games. People are just so ignorant... As if one necro's pet will really lag the game (if they have a proper comp thats not outdated these days). The other day I had the experiance with 2 other necro, we decided to summon full army.
Then, only then I experiance some minor fps hit...

Sure, I understand in super fast baal games we don't really have to summon anything but it's those games people keep dying, even summon 1 or 2 minion people will scream "lagromancer!!"

Now this ridulous rumor.... Just plain funny :laughing:

To deal with the enemies of the dark....
1) Summon Skeles
2) If they complain, summon the mages
3) They keep complaining do they, bring out the revives (flashy ones are best:rolleyes: )
4) Break out the poison creeper and the oak sage/grizzly for the hardcore complainers.
5) Hostile if there REALLY getting on nerves
6) Spam Bonewall EVERYWHERE, then start spamming CE.
7) Laugh as they fall prey to the Minions of Darkness :laughing:

If it is the beginning of ladder, I would do something simpler. Suddenly TP back and see everyone die.

And summon does indeed lag with orb, poison nova, or stuff like that around, IF you are running DirectX 3D. But then, with DirectX 3D, even the overlay map can lag if it is large and complicated enough (I was using a P4, btw).

Good grief! How in the world does all these lies get started about us humble practitioners of the unliving? All we're out to do is make our way in this crazy demon filled world and everyone spawns lies about us! I actually think that all the other characters are jealous of our ability to have a huge posse of monsters that do our bidding and it's total envy. Envy engenders hate, lies and rumors (and so forth).

(sigh) No skeletons don't leech expt. Neither do the mages, nor the revives or any golems.

Tell your other players to come up with more accurate reasons why you shouldn't summon your hordes of undead.

cheers,

Well I am polite, I usually ask before doing a baal run if I may summon minions. If I can not, then I just hang out in the back with my merc, and cast CE. I can raise an army of about 40 currently, so I do understand how it may lag some canadien's computers.

As far as skeletons talking, mine are having some jealousy issues. See my favorite skeleton who's name is Nicole Ritchie is so much prettier than the others. They all get jealous of her, and all I ever hear is fighting over who is the prettiest skeleton of all. Sometimes I need to get away from it, so I will revive a succubus to keep me company.
