    Why I love my Skelliemancer

    After playing D2 for about a month or so and try out differenct character. I must say that the skelliemancer is the best character out there.

    I mean there is nothing better in the worldto do then to use your fallen enemy to raise an army that will follow you into to hell *really* :lol: and kill for you.

    I love having a huge meat sheild take care of business for me while I help out by taking pot shots with my bonespear..

    I laugh at the poor people that have to get face to face with their enemy to kill them...

    I feel like skelemancer is going the way 1.09 paladins did. Everyone wants one on their team, especially in hell mode, but no one wants to play them. Yes i know when 1.10 first came out everyone had em, but in the past 3 weeks I havn't seen one. Everyone wants a cookie cutter that can solo the game alone, but most of the time, those characters don't help out others, the reason to play multiplayer.

    That's so funny you say that. This weekend when I was putting my finishing touches on my necro rebuild, I had gotten more compliments on my party play style then EVER before.

    Doing Hell ball runs for a full day, I had the following comments:
    Zealadin: Thanks for the might aura, let's me use salvation for us.
    Sosa: Wow, that lower resistance curse makes me kill faster! Thanks!
    Bowazon / Ik Barb: Dude, amp damage rox!
    LF Zon: OMFG!! A necro that actually knows how to use curses! Thanks for the LR!

    The funny thing that none of them noticed?
    All that cursing was doing me a HUGE bonus. Yea, it helped them, but my main purpose was for me to level, not them. So it had 2x effectiveness, since I just broke Clvl 84 1/2

    Also, funny thing:
    Doing pubby baal runs is hilarious. When a game filled up, people would wait for a sosa to tele, who never would unless she was bo'd first. It got tricky obviously. There were a few runs where after 32.1 seconds (j/k) everyone would leave.

    I'd walk my happy little @ss down, dim vision gloams if necessary, and end up either solo'ing wsk2/3 + throne or having a whole new party join up by the time I made it down.

    Lastly,
    I was getting really pissed at another necro in one run, when we were doing baal, where he kept on using WEAKEN on baal himself. I said dude, quit cursing, let me use decrep. That and golem will keep him slow. His response? "The sosa's blizz keeps him slow stupid, weaken makes him hurt less."

    I quit and made a new game.

    Ya know, I wanted to do just that. I wanted to pk him by USING DECREPIFY then just letting my golem / skel's eat his lunch.

    But then I realized like 98% of B.Net, he'd never learn his lesson.

    Reminds me of the amazon that challenged my sosa. She kept using SLOW MISSLES on me then screaming when my BLIZZARD would **** her. She said I was a hacker...

    I didn't see him again :)

    I would have taken the time to explain, but through numerous experiences with necro's amping bosses, or lr'ing them (which I see decrep + clay as the only real option) I just leave well enough alone.

    It's usually upsetting enough to make me log off and go play ninja gaiden.
