    Thanks to the forums, my first Patriarch!!

    I wanted to thank everybody that posts in the Necro forum. I've played Diablo for a few years and have tried a lot of different chars. About a month ago I started my first necro as a Fishymancer. Last night I took down Hell Baal without any trouble. Thanks to Fishy for the guide and thanks to all the other posts I read that helped me along the way. NECROS RULE!!!

    How did all of you get your first Patriarch/Matriarch?

    congrats! Fishy mancer's are cool from what I can imagine. I have never went the full fish, as a melee-nec scares me personally.

    Oh well, my first patriarch came back in classic. If I can remember correctly, it was a wonderful amazon (my fav til late 1.09)

    FishyMancer?

    What exactly is a fishymancer?

    I recently started playing a summoner and am marching through act5 hell right now. Left my game this morning at the WP in Glacial Trail!

    I use skeleton warriors with amp and Corpse explosion as my main attacks. I also used Revives but without a Teleporting ammy or Enigma their sometimes difficult to use.

    A Fishymancer is a Skelliemancer based on the guide made by Nightfish.

    to elaborate more then what has been given:

    A fishymancer is a variant of the now standard summoner (1.10 version) made by a forum member NIGHTFISH. It is what started the now standard build.

    The catch to his build, was equipping a 4eth / 2shael phaseblade with guillame's face helm on bosses. This gives crushing blow, which whips up bosses. The shaels give good speed, and the eth's ensure 100% to hit.

    The above, plus your standard max warrior / mastery / ce build = boss ownage.

    Yeah, I'm a casual MFer so I didn't do the Boss killing/CB part of the build. Does this mean that I'm not a Fishy build?

    If you followed the guide, then use that name. It doesn't matter.

    That means she was your first Matriarch, not Patriarch :drool: . My 1.10 Summoner was my first Patriarch. Before 1.10, I only used Amazons, so I never had a Patriarch.

    Congratulations, troxejas! :buddies:

    Well done dude!

    My 1st Patriarch was a MF barb in 1.09. He uses dual GF and is now stuck at lvl 95 forever...

    However, I'm assuming u r asking 1stPatriarch/Matriarch in 1.10 since u have been playing d2 for a few years. My 1st Matriarch in 1.10 is a orb/firewall sorc. She is now a mule....

    I have just achieved Patriarch.

    I used a summoner/bonemancer hybrid based on the guides but not followed directly.

    Just about an hour or so ago I got to tack on the new designation. Level 84 and looking forward to more serious MF'ing.

    Baal didn't give me as much trouble as Diablo did. And neither gave me as much trouble as the B.Net servers did. Nothing like instant lag the moment the Ancients are awakened, the moment you step through to the worldstone chamber or break the last seal.

    Now it's all about MF, rushing and leveling.
