    what build should i take?

    hey people,

    3 hours ago i completed a trang set, but i didnt have a necro. so i started one.
    hes only lvl 5 or so, so nothing wasted.
    i read through the various builds and ive seen a bone necro in action and imo its good.
    but the trang set isnt really for the bone necro i guess.

    so i should go poison with this necro? or both poison/bone

    thx for the help :)

    I went Poison/summons with mine.

    Only Skeletons though, I find them much more useful (and less stupid) than revives.

    Partial Trangs might be an options, as at least 3 pieces have +skills to them in the various skill trees, and also have some pretty good partial set bonuses to boot. The belt alone is almost worth is for the Cannot be frozen mods...as it free's up another ring slot.

    Use the pieces that best compliment your build, suppliment with other +skill gear with mods that fill any missing gaps like resists etc.

    If you think you can trust me (it's all up to you), be a skelemancer. I wish I could get the full trang, but... hehe, I wish.


    Take a look of this threat I posted awhile ago and see if you like the flavor.

    One more point, 1 point into Armor and Wall is recommend. Then use the Marrowwalk bug to get decent Bone Armor damage absorbance. If you don't know what "the Marrowwalk bug" is, ask anyone in this forum you should get an answer.

    Thing is.....not everyone finds Marrowwalks, and though it seems like everyone does use the bug...there are the handful of (Old-Timers) that don't exploit a bug.

    I agree on the 1 point Bone Armor. Bone Wall should be maxed though, since it boosts both armor & your offensive skills.
    Then, if you do use the Marrowwalk bug, bone armor & your offensive skills will be quite strong. I have tried both using and not using the boots, since I only got them at high lvl. And while they add lots of damage (1200 or so), they aren't needed to make the build viable.
    I didn't have points into BP at that time, and had pretty good damage already with enough +skills and maxed wall, teeth, spear & spirit.

    well i got the marrowwalks also (so they do got a good use ;) )

    i read about using the partial set also but i wanted to show off as a vampire with my brand new set tho :D
    so a poison skelemancer should be best, but how do you get the poison immumes then? (dont the skelets tend to be laggy also? )
    bone spirit is a bad backup?

    and no i dont know the marrowwalk bug, i did read it boosted synegy more than it must but i didnt really get that part :/

    thx for the feedback so far. :xsmile:


    [edit] cerebron i got the full trang set for a griffons eye (far from perfect one) on etf, pretty good deal huh? :D


    [edit2] i just read "Skeles or Revives For bonemancer?" thread and he finished his build at clvl80 with full bone synegy and he got points left. would it be wise putting those in poison as a nice backup?

    I'd say skelemancer but then again I'm biased towards summoning builds. However, full Trang's is pretty good for a pure summoner, but it can be used effectively in other builds. I suppose it all boils down to preference. Do you enjoy watching an undead hand tailored by you, go across sanctuary and bring justice to Diablo's minions? Or are you more of the do-it-yourself mindset?

    No, it will not. Poison needs an awful lot of synergy points to act as a good back up. With just a few points you can get a reasonable Pnova that can stop some monsters from regenerating, but that is it. It is no killer.

    I R TEH NEWB TAHT EXPLIOOTS TEH BUHHGGS IR TEH 1337 HAXXXOR!!!

    Go skelly my friend, and poison nova is a decent backup too if you wish to do that b/c of the bonuses for it with trangs. i did that with my trang set mainly so I could LR and take care of those pesky Stone Skin Phys Immunes and to peck off one pack of monsters with LR when my skellies are busy with another (amped of course), but i'm rebuilding and using mainly CE as support, as I found that most useful for MF (what I love skelliemancers for)

    See now there are not a lot of immunes, but a lot of enemies still have resists. So Bone also needs synergies. You can get the synergies from Marrowwalk. Although I do not use the bug myself.

    BTW: check out d2data.net for resistances.

    LR = lower resistance

    CE = Corpse explosion

    Bone necros are quite powerful so you should make one if you want to

    Trangs is made for summoners... The fire skills work nicely as a back up killing skill while skellies hack away... after maxing RS/SM and getting the prereuisits for 1 pt revive I would suggest the poision tree.

    Summons make a meat shield and the poision will be enough to stop hell monster Regeneration...

    That's my $.02

    Sorry Harbinger, we've all exploited bugs...

    If you ever played a Barbarian or an assassin pre-1.10, you exploited bugs.

    Trangs is a good all-round set. It is not the "best" equipment for any one build, but it helps all builds. It is particularly suited to a poison/summon hybrid. Whether you use skellies with poison as backup or the otherway around trangs will work nicely.
