melee necro started today

Post by Stcecil on Wed Jul 31, 2013 3:51 am

I started a Necro today and I plan on going melee.

I read the melee Necro guide here and i was just confused about one thing.

Why get any crossbow skills at all?

It says Buckshot : 1 point as pre-req

then

Windowmaker : See Buckshot



Is there something helpful there (synegry or passive) I'm overlooking?

If anyone has any general advice on a melee necro, any comment is welcome.

Dragonfire oil passive adds fire damage to all weapons.

Personally i would go for a slight twist. Drop DFO for Frostclaw Totem, there are quite a few fights you will not want to get close too. Am currently using this Skillplan DeathFrost (Necromancer, 2012 v005) am only 30% of the way through terror but wiped all act bosses in about 3 secs so far

Intersting Arc,

I'll keep that in mind, I see you left dragonfire oil at 0...

Massacre too

max femine,put some in dragon fire,max it if you want,parasite is not a boss killer skill,you will need something,not all boss can be killed by poison,so you can not rely on angel of death,get whirlpool

massacre is interesting,a good way to make a proc machine,and it also adds attack rating

for shooting necro,I think fragmentation shot is a very good 1-pointer,voodoo shot got too popular,it is a good time to start buckshot,but since you will be a short ranged shooter,that second rocket stun skill gonna be very useful to you,it stuns enemies a longggggg time Very Happy 

still,do not put too many points in buckshot,seems not that useful

ya i was thinking that, since massacre gets what? 4-5 hits super fast it prolly procs % on hit abilities like mad, for me, % on hit abilities are the most fun in the game, i noticed in the Forums guides under melee necro the Op left Massacre at 0, so, wasn't sure where to go with it

Actually while there are technically diminishing returns from a % increase standpoint the extra shards are well worth it. The shards increase the density of buckshot as the spray doesn't grow meaning the damage increases. The difference between 100 shards and 132 (8 skill points) is a 1/3 damage increase which is really hard to beat with such little investment. It also means more triggering of procs and cb.

Of course this is ignoring next delay and shard speed/duration but there is still a noticeable increase in kill speed up to a certain point.

On another note, on attack proc builds are interesting but I've never gotten one to work before (to my druid's great dismay) so more power to you if you can get it done.

I'm not gonna aim to get it to work to do ubers and farm hell, i just wanna make a really fun build and see how many procs I can get.

its just for fun Mr Green 

as far as buckshot, if im not gonna use a crossbow, isnt it a dead build? unless i aim for some hybrid build, but im not, gonna go pure melee...

anyway, been hooked on the druid so, the necro is sittin pretty at level 11, i wanna start a pally and zon as well, assass, barb and sorc aren't of too much interest yet
