would this work: melee mancer

zeal on range weapon?? kidding right? but if it could then zeal a elite repeater x bow + 10% IAS would be really cool. get that belt call razor tail(?) then you have a piecing bow, with Clagclaw glove then you have knock back and slow too. would someone test this for the rest of bowamancer-wannabe?

How about this approach....

Level 9 Fanaticism Aura When Equipped
+40% Increased Attack Speed
+240-270% Enhanced Damage (varies)
20% Chance of Crushing Blow
25% Chance of Open Wounds
+3 To Werebear
+3 To Lycanthropy
Prevent Monster Heal
+25-40 To Strength (varies)
+10 To Energy
+2 To Mana After Each Kill
Level 13 Summon Grizzly (5 Charges)

Put this bad boy in a zerker or ettin and your good to go. Max Bone Armor and its synergies along with decrep and your good to go. Some would say that a melee necro would not use the werebear skill because then he wouldn't be a necro anymore....but I think its fine.

Any thoughts?

^ If you are going with that mother, put it in a Cadeceus. They swing much faster than axes and the one I have does respectable damage, on top of being incredably fast (on a zealing paladin, of course.)

Would it be possible to prebuff the Bear, then switch to something else? I must try this...

I partied with a zon last night and she was doing act2 hell asking for help. no problem I asid that is until I run into those annoying magic immune rerivaler.

so in front of zon, I stoped boning and switch to my upgraded steel driver and run up to the rerivaler and hammerred it in. it did took about 10 hit but woo hoo, I dun have to run from it anymore.
