    TRANGS...overrated?

    1. is trangs good to have for a summoner/CE?

    2. or should i get humonclus and some other stuff for necros?

    3. my friend also said that enigma isnt a good armor for any necro, not even a summon necro, he said that enigma was mainly for paladins to do baal runs...is he right? or should i get enigma so i can directy my army on where to go

    1. Yes.

    2. Maybe

    3. Your friend is wrong by so much... by so very much....
    Enigma is the god armour for a summoner.

    Every single set can be beaten by a nice combination of uniques and runewords these days.

    But it all depends on your budget.

    so would this build beat trangs...
    shako
    enigma
    frostburn
    goldwrap
    homu

    i have full trangs now, and 2 shakos and 1 occy, so my budget is fairly high..
    any suggestions would be appreciated

    I currently have an mf summoner necro he uses these.

    Shako PTopazd
    +3 Necro Skills Ammy w/ Mf/Res
    Arm of King Leoric
    Skuldier's Ire PTopazd
    Homonuclius PDiamond
    Chancies
    2x Nagles
    Goldwrap UP'D
    Wartravs

    +13 Skills combined with a good MF% I don't really see the usefulness with full trangs unless you like looking like a vampire. Some parts of it such as the gloves are nice but I prefer the above mentioned gear. And yes nigma is like GOD SUMMONER ARMOR O DOOOM!!!! Teleing with a huge army + merc + a golem possibly is very nice, but I prefer to clear things instead of going straight for the boss and skipping all the possible good drops you might get from the super-unique monsters and alike...

    As for the answer from the title...no trang's is not over rated...the opinions of those who don't know any better and play it off that they do is what it truely over rated.

    1- Trangs is good for either a summoner that also uses CE (like a fishymancer)...for a venomancer hybrid (max all 3 poison skills and rest into skeleton mastery/skeletons or IG/mastery). Either you like being a ghoul lord or not.

    2- You could use other equipment and humo shield with enigma and tele-stomp monsters with your horde...as well have MF with the build to do that.

    3- Your friend has a case of H-U-A...and I'll leave it at that for now.

    For the stuff he listed...you can get for 3-4 soj's if even that...most expensive thing woul be the skullder's and war travelers. The rest would be valued in perfect gems.

    Not much left to say,

    1. Trang is passable (and cool) yet there is much better.
    2. With trang you will get 5 to summon (+wep) whereas with uniques/runeowrds you can get up into the 40s easily.
    3. Your firend is mentally insane.

    My Gear..Woot!

    This is what I currently Use.

    Shako
    Arm of King Leoirc / Beast Runeword Axe on Switch (lvl9 fanatacism)
    Homu
    Enigma
    Maria's Ammy
    Wedding Band + SOJ
    Trangs Gloves
    Arachnid Belt
    MarrowWalk

    For my Merc it is (might merc)

    Vamp Gaze
    Fortitude Runeword Archon Plate
    Pride Runeword Cryptic Axe (lvl 20 concentration)

    Have to say it works PRETTY good. the 10k damage per skele is pretty good. The lvl40 corpse BOOM, is great. Just having massive range on all the curses. Fun to play. Oh yea, enigma? It is pretty much the coup de grace. Can't Beat it.

    From like all of that, you MIGHT be able to get a enigma. Think full trangs is in the ~1-1.5 hr range. Shakos are pul-um meaning you can scrap enough hr's to get an enigma. Homunculous is easy to get, offer someone on the board like 10pgems for a bad one and you'll get it.

    Do yourself a favor and just run the Worldstone Keep once you get up into Hell difficulty. It's fairly easy to solo as a summoner, you get good items, which lead to an Enigma, and it ends up with some good experience and the highest ilevel boss in the game. Just take your time with this.

    Also, make sure that you cow. Corpse explosion is amazing for that purpose. Getting an Insight runeword on your merc should be a priority. There's just no subsititute for its convenience unless you're going up against a boss.

    Enigma fixes all the problems a summon necro has, like dumb revives, cramped areas etc. And adds more benefits like minion stacking (as in you can get the whole lot of them bash down on 1 tough monster type of thingy).

    Trangs is a decent set, but it works better if you play psn summoner hybrid, alternatively just buy the 3 piece trangset and get the same awesome psn boost.

    Just to reinforce what Bladewind said: Enigma (via teleport) helps you keep your minions together because when you teleport, they all teleport with you. Thus, you can stack them up or group them instead of losing them when moving fast. Also, it keeps you from losing your revives. In fact, imho revives are only useful if you have Enigma for teleport.

    The way I got my Enigma was I ran Nilhathak for destruction keys. Traded extra d-keys for enough to make 3 keysets and then traded 3 keysets per HR.

    My setup is almost identical to Forte's above. The only difference is that I use an AoKL for summoning but switch to Blade of Ali Baba for killing because of the mf and gf.

    Wart's
    Homu
    ^^

    Nothing of it is really worth much. Just get a couple of ums... Necro ain't that expensive. Even the Torch is rated at Um or so for a mediocre one.

    Engima gives you wiings...but doesn't make your revives smarter.
