first char - Scythe necro problems

Post by doczoidberg on Thu Jul 31, 2014 12:04 pm

Hello guys! Smile
I have been playing Median about 2 days now and unfortunately haven't quite found in yet.
My current character is a level 12 scythe necromancer, building him towards famine/ parasite because it seems very similar to the original werewolf i really enjoy playing.

While beginning Act 1 questing i already noticed that the guide i was following was completely out of date (http://www.medianxl.com/t1713-1d9-death-a-melee-necromancer)
Secondly, having 1 point in Massacre and Angel of death doesn't do much harm when encountered by multiple mobs.
I tried out "maxing" Massacre but the damage increase was just not good enough.

My question: What is a good way to increase my damage output without leaving this build plan - maybe i even do something wrong.
Build plan: (max: famine, parasite, deathlord, embalming)
I flew over the beginners guides an they say I should consider upgrading my weapon with mystic orbs - shall I just stack damage on my scythe then?
Is it really such a struggle for scythe necros before they can get parasite?

Thanks for reading and answering! Smile

+10 max dmg MOs help early as %ED doesnt have as much effect on T1 items. Eld rune is quite good too (in a GREY necro scythe)

Use the black cat runeword until you get the tu bonesplitter.

@doczoidberg
Here u have my little guide for meele neco to lvl 50.

All stats into str. Smax deathlord,parasite,faminne,dragonfire oil and emblaming, rest skills are 1 pt. Dont use summons/totem because they are super weak and useless if u are not playing summoner or summ/totem hybrid.
Rush to tristram and farm grisworld for gift box and get this from him:
1. Talon's Reach (Bonesplitter)
2. Albrecht's Revenge (Chain Mail) or Jitan's Kamon (Splint Mail)
3. Auriel's Halo (Tiara) or Lanterne Rouge (Great Helm) or Haareis (Diadem)

Later on try to get this: (this items wont drop from giftbox as you're playing as a nec. Get them by finding or use cube reciep to make them)
1. Deadfall (Heavy Belt)
2. Toorc's Gift (Heavy Gloves), Featherclaw (Chain Gloves), Visegrip (Light Gauntlets), Pollice Verso (Gauntlets)
3. Death Spur (Heavy Boots), Lionpaw (Chain Boots)

Upgrade your grear according to your lvl and stats u have (see online docs for all cube recipes and more info: http://mxl.vn.cz/doc/ )
For the amu and rings, every with +1-2 skill and res (20%+) are good for you. If u woried about res, make honorific gloves and cube them with all res/x res mo.

Jah in a circlet or yul in any helm are also awesome options. Eventually you can creepy shrine craft and abandon bless for attack rating gloves with stormblast proc and boots with whirlpool.

Yea man. Punisher procs will help you early game. Then just farm Tristram box from Griswold and get your unique bonesplitter and heavy belt. Rings of Disengagement are fun cause then your character runs around like he's on crack. Later on xorine rings are nice too with punisher proc and helpful attack rating. This character is fun and rolls through the game. Wait til you see how easy it is once you morph into deathlord.

PLEASE GET (and use) most underrated necro (and imho best) in game soon!!!

And yeah gregs suggestions r nice esp when lvling.

Hmmm. I would argue for cert nec rw's like glove or helm IF u use minions to buff urself. depends!\

Also I got eth freakshow. Find a freakshow. Best scythe in game since it was made.

I think best gloves early on are Toorc gloves(like hellgrind said) or kali rw kick ass too. Nice 2 skills and fire proc.
Will: I have a 7 heads and freakshow but haven't used them yet. The double mo chthon rw is just so good. I think you can get a lot done later game with Erawan rw(aim for 15% damage reduction),chthon rw(double mo in sacred bonesplitter), tu heavy belt or vith rw in a sacred plated belt and creepy crafted gloves with stormblast and whirlpool boots(you can bless them both with abandoned shrines for attack rating). I found hrtali armor and royal circlet which helps me find good stuff too.  Razz

Well yeah, untwinked scythe necro sucks horse cock(raptor scythe has pathetic 16 durability and massacre destroys it in the blink of eye) before hitting lvl 18 for parasite. But after 24, he turns into swift steamrolling-crapstomper.
