Default I had a very profitable day yesterday...

I took my necro out to meet Ghial, the Bone Dancer. Now, Ghial's dead, and my Necro has a brand new Elite Skill...

Congrats Ven!

Flesh Golem is a real beast of a minion and is alot of fun.

If you've got Nightfall consider trying to find Jagged Bones. It's a great hero elite, but not so easy for humans to use.

If I do get that, it'll be so my MM Heroes-Olias in all his incarnations-can use it. I've heard MM-ing is something Heroes do really well for some reason of other...

They do it really well because of the AI's speed and the ability to target with Jagged Bones. Jagged Bones pretty much makes it so that whenever a minion is about to die, another one will appear. This allows them to keep a constant number of minions around.

They're not as hard hitting as say a Flesh Golem and a mix of vampiric & bone minions, but they do very well in sheer numbers alone. Add in a Savannah Heat Elementalist to drop heavy AoE Fire Spells while the minions body block and things die pretty quickly.

My hero MM build looks like this:

Jagged Bones, Animate Bone Minions, Blood of the Master, Death Nova, Protective Spirit, Aegis, Signet of Lost Souls, Blood Ritual.

Blood Magic 3+1
Death Magic 12+3+1
Soul Reaping 9+1
Protection Prayers 9

Pretty much the typical Sabway MM Necro only with Blood Ritual (for some extra energy for monks and the like) instead of condition removal.

I wonder if we should put together a build thread...

Interesting with all the Protection. I use heal area on him. I like the Blood Ritual, though...will add that.

Heal area doesn't work that great, he mostly uses it to heal himself as most of his minions aren't in the aoe when he casts it.

Prot Spirit is nice to have on him as it free's up a slot on my monk heroes.

Aegis is also another nice skill, especially when the monsters get into close range. It'll protect most of the casting line, monks, eles and the like while the monsters are rampaging around back there.

Oh, because of the amount of enchantments, Aegis, Prot Spirit, Jagged Bones, & Blood Ritual, it's also a good idea to give him a "of enchanting" weapon. It'll add a couple extra seconds onto all of those spells and that's worth it.

take your point on heal area not doing much for the minions - although it is nice occasionally. What do you give him for a self heal? With BotM and no heal I find he gets killed MUCH more easily since he is too stupid to not sacrifice health when he is dangerously low anyway.

I like putting Aegis on him. Love that spell.

He's got Signet of Lost Souls for some self-healing. Not the greatest, but when you're out of combat the healers can easily keep him alive. In combat you don't see blood of the master as much and SoLS is sufficient to keep him alive.

I like the build too. And, I do think that we should start a build thread. I dont' think I have any that interesting off the top of my head, but I do think we should start one.
