Description

Hey friends I’m looking for some feedback from any of you with poison necro experience. I currently have a well gear
Bone Spear
but I’m pretty bored with him at the moment. I’m looking at respeccing to
Poison Nova
but I’m not sure about some of the gear choices.

To be more specific, is the 3 piece Trang set bonus worth it? (Gloves,
Belt
and shield). Or do you go homonuculus or Spirit shield?
Arachnid Mesh
is the obvious
Belt
if not for the 3 piece Trang bonus. However, the cannot be frozen on the Trang
Belt
is pretty nice.

Also, I imagine BIS
Helm
and amulet would be
Circlet
with 2/20 + stats and crafted amulet with +skills and FCR?

Lastly, best merc weapon?

TIA

Can be used to make Runewords:

I think
Death's Web
is pretty much mandatory. You can get away with just a
Harlequin Crest
if you just want to MF. The point is to hit at least 75% FCR. Other than that, poison necro starts to shine with Enigma, because you just jump from place to place and trigger a
Poison Nova
. A second later everything is dead and you can come back and collect the loot. :P

For mercenary if you are rich then Infinity (it does not help poison damage, but it helps
Corpse Explosion
damage) or just Insight.

For the gear three piece trang set is a good idea if you are not aiming for 125% FCR. If you want 125% FCR then I think you have to use
Arachnid Mesh
and Spirit (20 from helmet + 20 from amulet + 35 from Spirit + 20 from
Arachnid Mesh
+ 10 from ring + 20 from trang gloves = 125 - I think there is no other way, so I think it would make less sense to use Arach +
Homunculus
vs Arach + Spirit in that case), so it depends on your playstyle.

I usually play and trade somewhere between 9 PM - 12 AM CET

Same as above. Ideal is
Death's Web
. If not (or with it) the 3 Trangs is nice (and you'll probably keep
Claws
anyway, they are BiS for any necro), or even full Trangs for a good start.

I wanna try this too.
I think
Death's Web
, Trang Gloves and Bramble gonna boost poison big time.

So I have a Grief, but no deaths web, it’s rarer than high runes when your ssf offline. I also have a shopped +5
Poison Nova
Wand
. Which do you think would be better?
7
When you say +5
Poison Nova
do you mean a +3 PN White runeword
Wand
? If yes that's probably a good
Wand
before getting DWeb (ideally you also have +1 to
Lower Resist
on it to save 6 stat points) + most of Trangs.

Imo, for a poison necro, FCR isn't quite as essential for dealing damage as it is for other casters.

The reason for this is that
Poison Nova
travels quite slowly relative to other projectiles, and its 2 second duration means there's nothing to gain from repeatedly hitting enemies with it. Refreshing the poison to avoid downtime does not require much FCR. FCR does improve
Teleport
with Enigma,
Corpse Explosion
, your curses and such, but it does not need to be the center of your gearing perspective. As such, 3 piece Trang-Oul's with the
Belt
, headshield, and gloves is extremely strong, and I use it over
Homunculus
and
Arachnid Mesh
.
Homunculus
is better for tankiness, with its blocking, high resistances, and such, but I don't have survivability problems at all and prefer the damage potential of 3 Trangs. I would never use Spirit, except as an offhand with Call To Arms.

For merc, mine is rocking an Obedience. It's cheap and awesome, and very importantly has Crushing Blow, which is helpful. Between
Poison Nova
and
Corpse Explosion
, you can mop up rooms full of trash super fast. Merc only does work on bosses and niche situations like the
Megademon
wave in
Throne of Destruction
, and in those cases having some CB does wonders. Lots of people will tell you that Infinity is best, because it reduces enemy Fire Res and therefore buffs
Corpse Explosion
. I say it depends how much you're willing to spend on the character. He does fine without it.

Bramble is a very powerful armor, but I prefer Enigma.
Teleport
is amazing for all the usual reasons for a necro, but also for managing pets and positioning ideal
Poison Nova
casts.
Travincal
comes to mind in particular. I
Teleport
into the temple, curse, drop 1
Poison Nova
,
Teleport
out. When I come back, everyone's dead, no muss, no fuss, no risk to your merc or golem. It may depend on the difficulty you play at though. I play mostly alone, so 1
Poison Nova
will kill 99% of everything in the game. Soloing p8 WSK might be a different story.

I shopped a
Wand
from Natalia that has +2 all necro skills and +3
Poison Nova
(which took way longer than I thought it would), I’m still looking for either a +3psn Bone & +3 psn
Nova
or a +3 psn
Nova
base for White, but they are pretty rare.

Do you already have Trang's Wing ? If not, can give you that head in the meanwhile -
Larzuk
it and you'll have a decent Rhyme or Splendor Base :

trade/demon-head-t987451.html

Just add me for that. If you already have Trang's Wing, probably no use :)
Will tell you if I get a +3 PN White-able
Wand
.

Just saw that you're on PS, if you're PS only that's not possible, sorry - offer is also valid for the OP, I am a Bonemancer with Poison just for Magic Immunes, not a real poisonmancer myself.

Similarly, on PC Non Ladder, I have a +6
Nova
(+3
Nova
and White)
Wand
, an extra
Trang-Oul's Wing
,
Trang-Oul's Claws
, and
Trang-Oul's Scales
that I'd be willing to give away.

The Scales chest armor is not very good, but it works to get 3 piece bonus if you don't want to buy the
Belt
, and it at least has some useful bonuses.
