    Summonmancer Hot Keys

    I have a level 45 Summmonmancer and the problem i have encountered is that I have more cool stuff that I want to use and not enough hot keys. So what I was wondering was how any of you summonmancer experts set up your hot key. I am pure summons with a minor in Corpse Explosion.
    Thanks

    Ive been trying to figure it out for ages, how exactly Do you setup your hot keys? I usually just use the mouse wheel...which is too sensetive Im sure, but works, kinda.

    When you hit escape and then click the options menu there is a configure hotkeys option I beleive. I try to keep everything on my left hand so i use qwert asdfg zxcvb.

    Takes some getting used to but it is better in the end.

    I have never had a problem. If anything I have more hotkeys then I truly need.

    F1 Raise Skeleton Warrior
    F2 Amplify Damage
    F3 Decrepify
    F4 Clay Golem

    Coupled with the belt hotkeys I didn't need anything else to beat the game.

    You definitely want to reassign those hot keys under esc/options. I do this for every character, not just my necro. I always use the space bar - good for an emergency skill (like tp). Thats a little while to get use to it but its worth the extra effort.

    Ok all right now im confused. All ive ever used is the F keys for my spells and town portal. So i can use other keys than the F keys for my spells? Is there a limit to the number of spell hot keys i can assign? My problem is that I have more spells than F keys, and I cant decide which ones are important enough to assign. This is my first Summonmancer, first Necromancer actually, and I dont know which spells are used the most frequently thanks.

    You can use almost all the keys on your keyboard and all the buttons on your mouse as hot-keys. You can assign up to 16 hot-keys to skills (IIRC). You can assign the hot-keys by first hitting “Escâ€. Then go to “Optionsâ€. Click “Control Configurationâ€. Then highlight something you want to change by clicking on it. Click again until the current entry starts to flash. Then press the new button you want to assign to this skill.

    I'm set up thus:
    F1: amp dam
    F2: decrep
    F3: dim vision
    F4: CE
    F5: RS
    F6: Revive
    F7: clay golem
    F8: Bonespear (ANYTHING to make baal die quicker)

    I was unaware that I could re-map Q-T and A-G to more keys. I'll do that when I get home. There's several abilities I'd like to have up (like skelemage & bone spear for left hand).

    TAB Q W E R
    A S D F
    SHIFT Z X C V
    SPACE BAR

    These are the buttons I use most. Damn this forum for removing the extra spaces.

    yeah maybe I should switch to somthing else still trying to use the top row of "summoning" keys for curses and the "curse" line of keys for damage (CE, fireball, firewall) and the "damage" line for summoning.

    Tp scroll in slot 1 of belt
    P=tp
    Y=Summon skelly
    U=dim
    O=B Wall
    F=C golem
    G=Revive
    H=confuse
    J=attract
    K=B prison (item with b prison on the switch so no need to hotkey it really)
    L=Decrep
    :=CE
    ,=Summon mage
    .=amp

    With dim, no need for terror so its not hotkeyed
