    Okee so i rolled a 270 ed eth insight partizan (10 % superior) and i wanna make a char to utilize his/her merc, because i dont wanna make a charger :eek:. I was thinking either: summon nec, summon druid or kicker. Which would be able to kill say a level 30 charger the fastest? Thanks.

    If its going to 1hit a sorceress, it'll probably 1hit a summoner druid or necro, and wont take more than 2 to kill a kicker.

    Go to 29 for whitstans, viper, pcrown (provided you cant find a better rare circ) etc. I'm still advocating for the sorc... I was pleased with mine, even though I didnt go for a strong killing power on her (I went with enchant and hydra for fun, damage would have been much higher if I'd gone fireball or something) If you're good at teleing, and use your ranged spells to your advantage, you can catch them off gaurd for the tele on top of them.

    Could be, I dont recall the blocking on it off the top of my head. Depends also whether you'd rather go for a bit more survivability (higher blocking on whitstans=more life) or the extra skill but lower blocking of the visc.

    An upgraded Visc is good if you want the skill, otherwise stick with Whistan's. The block and speed are superior. Accord to The Arreat Summit, Whistan's has a 97% to block on a paladin, 92% for Ama/Asn/Bar, and 87% for Dru/Nec/Sor. It also has 40% Faster Block Rate, which is very important, as it will decrease the time needed to recover from blocking. Visc has 30/30 speed/chance and +1 sorc skills, so upgraded it would have 72% block. This is subpar in comparison to Whistan's, but to each their own. I do know Visc is a popular shield in SC.

    My personal opinion I would do a necro with bonespear or spirit with amp. The necro can bone prison them leaving them no room to do anything, at that time you can amp and tele on top. Althought the final product would only have 600-700 life Perhaps bone armor could absorb some hits.

    I vote tele necro.

    tele druid with HoW.
    max everything vita on your druid, max lycan ahd how, just leave all the damage-dealing to merc while you concentrate on moving and teleing.

    Shifted Druids can't Teleport, and unshifted Druids don't have all that much life (compared to shifted ones).

    I would probably make a Shotgun Sorc (lvl 30 Fireballer). Not likely that an opponent will guard against both a nasty Merc and a 2k Fire Ball.

    Necro would probably be the most effective, though, since you've got Amp/Decrep + Bone Prison + stacked minions.

    thanks for all the input but i think il lgo with a tele nec because hes got the dmg, and he most likely wont get hit with the minions. For gear i assume: pcrown, summon ammy, mages, string?, spirit + +skele shield, sanders, and fcr rings? I'm not sure what the tele bp's are, but hopefully i can shop a tele staff at malah in norm right? Btw im sorry if this is jumbled im kinda multitasking atm.

    I think the fcr bp you're looking for is somewhere between 75 and 80.

    I'd probably shoot for: viper 30, mages 20, 20 fcr circlet, 1 fcr ring = 80

    That leaves you room for an angelic ring+ammy. the rest sounds good... and yes, malah norm will sell tele staves. oh yeah, and I'd probably go with a +bone armor shield over a +skele one.

    fcr breakpoints ~~

    FCR / FPA
    0 / 15
    9 / 14
    18 / 13
    30 / 12
    48 / 11
    75 / 10
    125 / 9

    Normal Akara also sells the staves.

    As for skills, I'd leave amp at base, get a lot of skeletons (the more bodies around you the better), leave mastry at a lower level (maybe 1 with skills) and pump armor.

    I just realized that there is no pre-buff for skelies :eek: Once you switch weps you lose the +skills so i'm thinking of a +nec ammy with fcr, but ill try and get a +2 nec summon with 20 fcr first. 1 pt. iron golem (what wep?) and golem mastery right?
