Viable pvp bone necro setup?

8/6 White wand -20 FCR
'Spirit' Shield -35 FCR -55 FHR
2/20 Circlet [shael] -20 FCR, 20 FHR
2/10 Amulet -10 FCR
Enigma Wyrmhide
Arachnid Belt -20 FCR
Trangs ouls glove -20 FCR
2x Bul Kathos Rings
Sandstorm Treks -20 FHR

I was trying to maximize dmg without giving up too many other attributes. My main questions are: How important is block to a necro (with bone armour minion stack etc) and why is hoto preferred over white wand?

Most necros build their pvp boners with max block (usually with stormshield) and then carry HOTO or wizzy to make up the fcr to reach 125. You really need blocking versus melee chars. What most necs do is just have a nice white wand and spirit in stash that they switch in duels versus casters (nec and sorcs) where they need to maximize damage and the block rate doesn't matter at all.

I always figured block just gave a higher margin of error vs melee. Can you "play better" to compensate for block? or is it pretty much required?

You can....and some boners choose to go the non-block/max-vita route. But there is not much room for error against the melee chars. If they get a hold of you, then you are in deep doo-doo. :grin:

putting 1 pt in revive ,you will end up having around 15-19 revives which is more than enough.I use d to have 1 ,but i remake becuase i don't like to go throgh all the trouble to get revives every 3 mins or so.

Should be fine with 1 point revive.

Since I take it there is bming, you summon all you can as fast then cold plains->Blood moor

Depending on what char you are against, if there are characters that will splash through summons then you play defensive with ibs. If there are characters where revives nulls the damage then you play aggressive and telestomp at any chance.

I personally just go full vital to make it simple.
