    Who say summoners can't duel...

    So i know summoners arent the greatest for dueling but i was bored and decided to start some dueling with my ** summon necro and i was surprised by how well he does. Sure i got my a** handed to me by a hammerdin and a windy druid(dont know what i was thinkin even venturing out of town on that one) but he actually does great in pubby duels. I spanked some higher lvl 90-92 chars just by teleing ontop of them and casting amp when i could. Really quite fun to do pub duels with.

    so if u got a good necro and have never tried just pub dueling... give it a whirl and see what happens. (yes u will get raped by godly chars) but wipe the smile off some craptalkers that think ur a nub for trying to duel w/ a summoner.

    Depends how the other person duels, I guess. I mean if they use tricks such as Lifetap on all your minions...

    Tee hee. Piss off a really really godly WW barb by talking trash about him. Then go outside with your minion buddies and I can virtually guarantee that he will try and kill you with WW. See if you can IM him before you die. In fact...I have a Necro specifically designed JUST for that...so fun.

    for me its not so much them being bad at dueling its just that when you die, something that is enevitable, you will have to get all your skeletons all over again

    IM will pretty much be useless against him.

    I 1-hit a 7.7k life zerker on whcl earlier this season with my godly summoner. I amped, and used minion stack (if you revive big guys like yeti's the minion stack locks) and the poor bastard couldn't touch me. He'd howl, and I'd just tele and re-lock.
    Only thing you have to worry about with barbs is the knockback on Leap. If you see them leap, try and get a screen away fast as you can...

    im glad to find that there are other summoners who have found dueling fun as well. I've been finding my best luck with dueling to be against barbs and zons for some reason (no javazons yet) but the bowzons just keep falling to me? (i know i'll probably get my a** handed to me by a godly bowzon in like 15 minutes just for saying that) but seriously ppl take ur summoners into a duel... i also recommend summoning Urdars for dueling (big dudes, river of flame) they work wonders with crushing blow.
