    What makes Prevent Monster Heal not work?

    Got a new skellimancer up to hell. Can do Baal pretty easy on 1 player, but on 8 players my guy gets stopped cold (literally) by Achmel, the second minion pack.

    Every skel being frozen and decepifies is bad enough, but all the monsters have life regen even though I'm wearing nature's peace. It's not just the summon guys, either. The mages, which can't leech life from casting, regen as well. What's causing it?

    RIP means that once a monster is dead it stays dead, cannot be revived/redeemed/corpse exploded etc

    PMH is not RIP, PMH needs a hit from a weapon to work

    try standing in front of Baal to stop your army being decrepified

    Try taking off nature's peace and using revive/CE to help on wave 2

    EDIT: pwned a mod :laugh:

    EDIT2: yes, PMH only works with a physical hit, use something like a EthEthEthEth crystal sword if your AR is very low, personally I don't think it's viable unless you are a commandomancer, just decrep back and CE away

    PMH only works on you and when you HIT something.

    Rest in Peace will stop the mages reviving the skellies you killed but not prevent them healing.

    PMH doesn't work on morons/mercs.

    EDIT: Pwnd

    Yes. You have to actually physically hit them. Same reason mana/life leech doesn't work with a sorceress' spells. :[email protected]

    lionheartthebrave: I don't get it. Nature's peace has both Prevent Monster Heal and Rest in Peace...

    Thyiad: So if I run around and hit them, they'll stop healing?

    There is a difference between "monster heal" = regeneration and monsters getting healed by spells from other monsters. On a sidenote, doing baal runs on p8 is completely pointless unless you are doing them for the XP. Even if you are doing them for XP it is completely pointless on a skelliemancer since half your killspeed is CE and you'd get more XP in the same time doing runs on P3 or maybe even P1.

    Thanks for the tip about getting Baal to only decrep me. I just hit the level to switch Naj's puzzler and it's alot easier this way. Still too tough for P8. I was hoping skellimancer would be a painless way to do some high-level baal runs for elite uniques, but oh well.

    Back to my Meteorb for that...
