Level 25 necro, best build to progress?

Post by Kato on Sun Feb 16, 2014 7:42 pm

I just returned to a lvl 25 necro I made ages ago and left there to go play another char. I've been reading around the nec forum and there's nothing about early game builds/gear/merc etc.

So I'm hoping for a steer on what's best to get to the 120 mark, and probably to get through destr etc (i.e. getting towards end game).

I have a few other chars at 120 which means I have some gear I could use - so it's doesn't have to be completely untwinked. However, I don't have a lot of end game gear, just a few set and SU items.

Any thoughts would be welcome. Thanks in advance.

Totemancer is probably the easiest for untwinked, IMO. Just need to roll a Hailstorm amulet for bosses.

Thanks archon I'll start him off again as totemancer.

The thing that strikes me about necro is that you can be in all the trees at the same time, whereas other classes prevent that. So I'm thinking that some summons look useful for... well, any of the other non-summoner builds?

Or melee necro. At start of level 1 use crossbow with 1 point in buckshot, 1 flametail shot since you need those to get to dragonfire oil. Also 1 point into massacre, angel of death (slaaayeeer !) then rest point go into famine, parasite, deathlord, embalming and dragonfire oil. Use crossbow until you get parasite. Gamble any rare crossbow - that will work fine until you reach lvl 18. Then get the scythe from gambling or npc. Maybe if you are lucky Griswold will give you the weapon. You won't have 2 arcane crystal at that stage, so you can use low level runeword like +El or +Tal. It will be slower until you get deathlord, but i did Andariel no problem with this setup, just drink hp potion while fighting her. After level 24 the act 2 sewers are a joke. Farm 2 crystals - make Talons Reach weapon - gg.

My honest opinion is cross bow necro, though it can be very pricey end game. Can do most ubers on p8 and there is a very good guide floating around on google, type in median xl xbow necro

Totemancer is definately the easiest untwinked. You get a bunch of free spell damage and you can use hounfor to make your totems suck less. Hailstorm as archaon said or shadow avatar on an amulet make taking out totems a breeze in k3k which makes it a decent sig farming build too.

Necros in general are good untwinked though. Just about any build you can think of on them is very poor people friendly.

Totemancer would be really cool for getting shit load of charms and its the most flexible necro build imho - easy and medium heroics, summoning ubers and toraja farming are cakewalk with his frost totems and thousand-headed army. Although i personally dislike travelling by bend the shadows, its not that hard to get used to it.

Xbow ftw. Fast efficient killer with talons hold smaxed, no need for void and tons of reanimates and not nearly as slow as summoner/totemancer. Rares early on, upgrade to easy to find crafts with +200% fire and -200% enemy fire resist with dragon oil, free leech from famine and your a god. Farm for su to do harder bosses.

Buckshot is quicker than voodoo for christs sake. Hell, melee necro is quicker.  Rolling Eyes
