    Venomancer Pit Runner

    I was thinking about making a Venomancer for Pit Runs. I was just wondering how fast people who use this build can kill in the Pits. Are they heavily dependent on P&B GCs? Suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

    Planned Gear:
    Shako
    Breast Plate Nigma
    Death's Web or Heart of the Oak
    Trang's Gloves
    Arachnid Mesh (self found, woo hoo)
    2xStone of Jordan
    Mara's Amulet
    Homunculus
    Marrowwalks (Bone Armor boost) or Silkweave
    Annihilus (17/19/8 self found, woo hoo)

    Planned Skills:
    20 Poison Nova
    20 Poison Explosion
    20 Poison Dagger
    20 Bone Wall
    1 Bone Armor
    1 Lower Resist
    1 Gumby
    1 Golem Mastery

    I'm no poisonmancer expert, but what about 3-piece trangs (shield/gloves/belt?)

    Also, congrats on the anni. I may have more, but yours is more better.

    I don't think it'll be able to dish out the same damage, but I am no poison expert either..hence this thread. ;)

    Thanks, good luck hunting. :thumbsup:

    A summoner tears through pits like noobs to ebay...I switched the sojs for nagles...because death's web takes care of any mana problems easy enough...also switch marrowalk's for eith rare mf boots or wt's. I used mine to mf pits and have had good results.

    Your summoner or venomancer? Not quite sure which you are referring to. I'm too lazy to wait for skeletons, and I'd rather spam Nova, assuming that it can kill as fast or faster than skeletons. :D

    Venomancer...that is what the topic is...isn't?

    Ask NC or pea how my Venomancer was...since we all 3 made them at the same time...though I ended up withe the better Death's web thanks to the pits.

    Before kbob wrote the Commando guide...I had one of the first Venomancers on east...and really stopped make them because every single run I was in seemed to have 2 other Venomancer's in it as well...so I stopped using it.

    Though I will end up remaking it since I do have a perfect Death's web on this ladder...and it was given a 5/5 pioson facet as well... get on ladder and I can help you out Gix.

    You don't need to be a poisonmancer expert to know the basics --- +%damage and -%resist beats a ton of +skills anytime, so 3 piece trengs is superior to arach/homunculus in terms of damage.

    However, at the least, homunculus probably offers more resists, and arach has +mana... so I guess it comes down to deciding what's more important. He will also loose 3 skills in the summon and curses trees.

    If you want more poison damage - 3 piece trangs, no doubt.

    If you want a "balanced" build between poison and summons then go for the Arach, Homo and Dweb.

    If you want a build that will go poison, summons and bone backup then swap the Dweb for the HoTO and use the Marrow synergies for a ~ 1.8-1.9k bonespear for PI Stoneskins in PvM.
