    if u dont think u'll die often, then take the above statement on making a golem out of a pride (if u can afford it that is also), otherwise might merc with pride will make ur skellys much more damaging. if u use a beast on switch, it'll make it even better.

    infinity in no way will grant any bonuses toward ur skellys as they do melee dmg.

    ...and even a 1 point mage summoner should have all their magi up anyway, the more the merrier.

    im not saying that im not planning to summon any mages cuz im gonna use them for some extra meat shielding but if i only put 1 point in magis even with all the # gear sit wont be that powerful cuz mages r weak to begin with and i dont think sacrificing the concentration aura for the conviction aura will be worth it because damage wise it will only benefit the already weak mages and it wont benefit my warriors in anyway because with lvl 45 warriors it can already hit everything in hell soo i odnt need that - to enemy def

    Don't forget the fire damage from CE will be helped by infinity (I don't recall if the rest is magic or physical damage). I went with infinity, because I also ran a lite sorc at the time. It made my necro so ridiculously powerful, by that point I couldn't care less if pride would've been better. I know that the #'s have been run somewhere before, maybe try searching? Let us know what you find out/decide. I'm rebuilding again, and will be interested to find out.

    Conviction takes away from enemy defence, which is rather helpful. AS well, the 40% CB on infinity from the bers will help a lot killing big guys like baal.

    I would go with infinity. Your skellies hit twice as much, and with pride they don't do double damage.

    Then the bonus to CE is incredible. You have to try it, even with people in the game the monsters still drop. Plus, as mentioned, CE on your merc will kill baal 300x faster.
