Introduction

Level 49 Bone Necromancer work very well in both one versus one (1v1) and team versus team (TvT) duels respecting the rules created by Ferdia and Perserker on Europe softcore non ladder (EUSCNL).

General Information
  • Aim for 75% FCR with 86% FHR since more FCR with high level
    Bone Spear
    and
    Bone Spirit
    would drain our mana quickly and isn't really useful against most characters
  • Versatile and a hard enemy in both one versus one (1v1) and team versus team (tvt)
  • Important on MLD Necromaner's are a high mana pool, flexibility, decent faster run / walk, life and replenish life
  • Aim for 1k+ life and 1k+ mana along with 100+ faster run / walk on non ladder (nl), 80+ faster run / walk on ladder with up to 30 replenish life depending on the other stats. Increase those stats by sacrificing skill grand charm's to small charm's.
  • Use 8 perfect skill grand charm's and the rest are perfect Small charm's. A cheaper solution would be to use only 5-7 skill grand charm's with lower life or faster run / walk, mana / resist small charm's

Stats

Homunculus

Vitality: ~192

2k-2,2k
Bone Spear
and 2,2k-2,4k

damage depending on setup.
Amplify Damage
reduces DR by 50% and
Lower Resist
reduces resist by 60%. Up to 180 Faster Run / Walk (Harmony if needed), 1k-1,4k hit points and 1k-1,4k mana, 350+ cold resist without
Anya
, high mana regen, damage reduced by 15, 30 replenish life depending on setup.


Strategies


Barbarian

Sacrifice
life, mana and damage reduction for faster run / walk. I recommend 150-180 frw with
Sander's Riprap
,
M'avina's Tenet
,
Circlet
and your small charm's. Always keep your
Bone Armor
up, never get closer to him than one screen. This can be a hard match if the barbarian is fast, does short
Whirlwind
's and guesses your moves well. That's why you have to run randomly, avoid any patterns. If you keep your distance, you can run. If he gets close, choose walking, change your direction and run again. Mostly use
Bone Spear
's alternated with a few
Bone Spirit
's. Some
Bone Spirit
's may hit him, he can outrun the others. Never use
Teeth
, it will harm you more than him.


Bow Amazon

Use 120 faster run / walk from
Circlet
,
Sander's Riprap
, Small Charm's and get all the replenish life you can get since their damage after
Bone Armor
is mostly low (except if you duel a 4k+ dmg 8 fps amp high crit glasscannon) and the duels can be really long. Always keep up your
Bone Armor
. If the distance to the Amazon equals more than 2 screens you have to fallback all the time while casting
Bone Spear
's and
Bone Spirit
's towards her to attack and (re-)casting
Bone Armor
,
Clay Golem
's and
Bone Wall
's between you and the Amazon to protect yourself. Once she gets closer than 2 screens, immediately change from defensive to offensive play by continuing to attack with more spears than spirits and try to trap her with your
Bone Wall
's and barriers on the map. Once both stand still you can tank an Amazon since your block (75%) is a lot higher than her avoid skills (5x%) and you are protected by your
Bone Armor
which you can recast once it's broken. This is my favourite match-up, especially against good Amazon's like Ferdia's, since it requires patience, good reactions and tactics.


Trap Assassin

Use 150 faster run / walk from
Circlet
,
Sander's Riprap
,
M'avina's Tenet
and small charm's. Make sure you have equipped 86% FHR to get out of
Mind Blast
. Since we don't have enough strength to equip
Thundergod's Vigor
, the Assassin's damage will be immense (up to ~6k*0.17*0.25=~255 pvp damage per hit at 5 traps with 10 shots each). Always keep your distance and avoid getting surrounded by traps and the walls of the map. Don't use
Bone Wall
's or
Clay Golem
since they may trigger traps with a huge attack range you might run into. Once she gets close to your screen she may
Dragon Flight
onto you, that's why you should always spam some
Bone Spirit
's in your way to protect yourself. As soon as you see a trap in your screen, run away - 1 trap with
Mind Blast
Stun
can be enough to drain all your life.


Javelin Amazon

Similar to barbarian.
Sacrifice
everything for faster run / walk, you might as well use Harmony to gain some distance from time to time. Use the map with cleverly placed walls to protect yourself and trap the Amazon. This is a boring match since the faster character mostly wins. Once she outruns you, you're dead since you don't have enough strength to wear
Thundergod's Vigor
and the damage is huge.


Necromancer

There are two types of duels: ranged war and close combat. For the first type you will need huge replenish life, life and damage. 70% faster run / walk from
Sander's Riprap
and
Circlet
are enough here. Use Insight from time to time to regenerate mana. Spam
Bone Spear
's and
Bone Spirit
's randomly over 2 or more screens away from your enemy. The second type is best because it needs fast reactions and good aim. Use 120 faster run / walk from
Circlet
,
Sander's Riprap
and small charm's. Replenish life isn't effective here since the matches are over pretty fast. Try to get a good amount of life and mana since your enemy won't let you regenerate mana. Mostly use
Bone Spear
's followed by a few
Bone Spirit
's so your enemy can't stand still and attack you.


Blessed Hammer Paladin

Get 120 faster run / walk from
Circlet
,
Sander's Riprap
, small charm's and so much life that you can exactly survive one more
Blessed Hammer
then with a little less life (i.eg. if you have 1k life and your enemy does 333 dmg => you survive 3 hits - although if he does 334 dmg you only survive 2 hits => get 3 more life). Find barriers like walls and stones on the map where he could get stuck and stay in this area, combine those barriers with well placed
Bone Wall
's prior to his character towards you. If you place a
Bone Wall
into his
Charge
he will get stuck and the animation takes long enough for some
Bone Spear
's and
Bone Spirit
's to hit him. Always keep up your
Bone Armor
in case he charges you directly with his Oath out. Move in non-predictable patterns, spam
Bone Spirit
's into your way and throw
Bone Spear
's to where you guess he is now or moves next. Spam another
Bone Wall
every few seconds into his
Charge
to increase the chance of him getting stuck.


Rabies Druid

Maximum faster run / walk and Harmony. Boring match-up.


Fire Ball Sorceress

Put on
Infernostride
,
Dwarf Star
and
Raven Frost
frost if she uses
Chilling Armor
, else just use
Stone of Jordan
. Use the 3/30
Perfect Skull
'ed
Circlet
and the 10/24
Belt
for more replenish life if the Sorceress play to defensive, else use the 2/30/20
Circlet
with
M'avina's Tenet
to compensate the faster run / walk loss of
Sander's Riprap
<->
Infernostride
. Get around 120 faster run / walk in total from
Circlet
,
Infernostride
,
M'avina's Tenet
and small charm's. Replace your shortcut w with
Bone Prison
since it's allowed against
Teleport
characters. You will use it when her mana is down: Cast them shortly before the
Bone Spirit
's arrive and surprise her when she tries to run away. Always (re-)cast your
Clay Golem
to cover for you. Cover your way with
Bone Spirit
's to avoid getting name locked and snipe her by guessing where she
Teleport
's next. If she keeps the duel on mid-range she won't get hit by missiles and it's even harder for you to avoid the Fire ball's. This can be a really easy or a very hard but fun match-up, depending on your enemy.


Blizzard Sorceress

Get 120 faster run / walk and put on a
Raven Frost
and a
Stone of Jordan
and use all the items that give cold resist: 10/24
Belt
with cold resist. faster run / walk, life, replenish life, cold resist
Boots
. 2/30/20
Circlet
with cold res, 2 to Poison and Bone Skills, life, mana, cold resist amulet, homuculus with strength, replenish life, cold resist jewel and faster run / walk or life small charm's with cold resist. You need up to 380 cold resist depending on your enemy's
Cold Mastery
and amount of cold
Rainbow Facet: Cold Death
. If you meet a good Blizzard sorceress your chances of winning are pretty close to zero. They have huge advantage of range and damage and they can easily avoid your attacks while their Blizzard's mostly hit you.
