    Skellinecro wishing for poison

    Well I am making a SkelliNecro and having fun and all, but the thing is, I rather use Poison than Decrepify. I have put 1 skill in Decrepify and its level 4 because of my stuff, and for me thats enough.

    Is it possible to walk with lvl 4-6 poison though? Is that useful in hell? I wont max it because I have to max my skellies but is it still useful if I put 1 spell in it and have it gain 5 skills with items? I dont want to find out later that I wasted 3 points. I understand its not that good versus baal, but if I can use it against his minions then I am happy :D

    Hi

    Lvl 5 poison nova/dagger would be a complete waste in hell.
    Most monsters will not even feel it.

    Poison....what? Nova?

    Let's pretend that you mean poison nova, as i believe it is the most obvious choice..

    With lvl 6 poison nove, the stats would look like this :

    Poison Damage: 127-168
    over 2 seconds
    Mana Cost: 20

    So it wouldn't be effective by a long shot, and i don't think it would even be good for stopping monster regeneration because of the short duration. plus to that there are so many poison immune & poison resistan monsters in hell..

    If you got yourself some better +to skills stuff, say 10 to all, the stats would be:

    Poison Damage: 213-254
    over 2 seconds
    Mana Cost: 20

    So not really that great with the sacrifice of +to summoning skill equipment..

    You might want to think about it twice. But hey, the only way to be really sure is to try it out :thumbsup: Still, IMO, it wouldn't be worth it :p

    Please do not post the same question in two different threads. Make only one thread.

    Again i am not targeting anyone specifically, espeically not this post but i think we have had almost every possible combination of topics that virtually boils down to the same questions/answers on the skelemancer (espeically with POISON). Can most people please please use the search function at the top right part of the screen in the topic list to search for answers in the first instance. More often than not it can be surprisingly helpful

    Same old excuses "i had a quick look but couldn't find" or "there so many guides i dunno which one to follow." I am sure if you tried just that little bit harder you should find quite easily what your looking for. Guides like PvP Venomancer/poisonmancer is geared for Duels HOWEVER it still has MOST concepts to strive for.

    I know i am starting to rant but i'm sure others will agree it is starting to get quite annoying! :rant:

    yup.

    kyo is correct. there is probably one of the most expansive databases on necromancer knowledge stickied at the top of page 1.

    There are guides / appendices and everything else. Look there lazyazz!

    Here's my comment from a different thread about this topic also:



    That's because "Hooked on Phonics" has been proven NOT to work here in our forum.

    Example #1: All the same threads about a Venomancer/Summoner...seems that the same question is phrased differently...but comes up the same question(and with the same answers)

    Example#2: Beat posted the Marrowalks explained thread...and there's someone else posting to explain the Marrowalks bug(and it was right above Beat's)

    My personal favorite is the:"Build me my first Necro" ones...That's the purpose of the "stickied guides" to do that for them.

    But...I've said it before(so will do it again) if it wasn't for these people(new-comers/noobs/or people trying something different) then how else would our post count go up?

    Time to
