Ok, correct me if I'm wrong, but i don't think i saw any weapons threads. What's your best weapon for a necro? Tell it's stats, and if it's 1 handed, what you have for other hand.

Currently i have a Bone Staff myself
Energy +7
Cold Damage: 7-12 (Req. 5 Death Magic)
Damage +20% (customized)
Two-handed

I currently use a Defensive Accursed Staff of Fortitude.

Energy +9
10-19 Dmg
Health +22
Armor +5
Two Handed

However, I would like to switch to a one-hander to take advantage of my off hand. Any suggestions on this?

I am using:

Truncheon
14-19 (8 blood magic)
Improves speed of casting (5%) cool when this kicks in.

Jewelled Challice I have a better one that I got from the collector in the desert
but it needs high Inspiration and mine is not quite high enough
+11 energy (9 illusion magic)
armour +4 against ele attacks

I would love to see a decent weapon that uses Death Magic.

I currently rely on bows since my Secondary is Ranger. If I could find a good Death Magic weapon I could take some points out of Marksmanship and put them to better use.

Insightful Accursed Staff of Shelter (gold)
+10Energy

i have a death cesta purple in my one hand, dealing a nice 11/22 damage, it also gives 4 energy, in my other hand a grim cesta, giving 14 energy

also the grim cesta looks really cool, its a big armored hand, great for a necromancer, if i where you i would go for deatly cesta and grim cesta

I have three weapons which I use for each attribute (depends on which build I play) and they're all staves (with the exception of my 55hp weapon set and i'll be getting a 1h weapon and focus that both give me -1 energy regen each, but gimme more energy (liek 20 more) for Curses and Death Magic, in case i'm in need of energy):
Insightful Cruel Staff of Enchanting -
+10 Energy
11-22 Cold Damage (req. 9 Blood Magic)
Halves casting speed of Blood Magic spells (20%)
Halves recharge time of Blood Magic spells (20%)
+5 Energy
Enchantments last 20% longer

Insightful Wicked (or Accursed?) Staff of Fortitude -
+10 Energy
11-22 Cold Damage (req. 9 Curses)
Halves casting speed of Curses spells (20%)
Halves recharge time of Curses spells (20%)
+5 Energy
+25 Health

Insightful Bone Staff of Death Magic -
+10 Energy
11-22 Cold Damage (req. 9 Death Magic)
Halves casting speed of Death Magic spells (20%)
Halves recharge time of Death Magic spells (20%)
+5 Energy
+1 Death Magic (19%)

I still have yet to get perfect mods for my Death Magic and Curses staves but what I have so far is okay. And for my Curses, i'm considering either +30 health or +1 Curses (18% atleast). Lucky for most of you, +5 Energy staff heads have decreased when I got them for my staves which were 10k-15k lol. (I see them for 5k-10k these days). IMO, these are the best possible combinations (of course, a few aren't perfect so far) except for Curses, +1 Curses (20%) might be better.... Overall, this will cost you like 100k-200k because of the +1 Death Magic (20%) and if you decide to get +1 Curses (20%) which are liek 35k-70k each.

for main hand i use
Bone Spiral Rod
11-22 cold dmg (9 death magic)
halves casting time of death magic (chance 20%)
energy +5 when health above 50%
20% dmg mod

offhand
Bleached Skull
Energy +12 (death magic 9)
death magic +1 (chance 20%)
health +30

Bloodstained Boots ( i concider this as important as the weapon and offhand
Armor 60
reduces casting time of spells that exploit corpses by 25%
energy recovery +1

As far as im concerned if you are an MM you have to have these 3 items. I ran specifically to Drokners forge so that i could have the boots.

Is this a Factions collector's item? If so, what (and where) collector has it? For my offhand I still use the following:

Grim Cesta
Energy +12 (req. 9 Soul Reaping)
Energy +15
Energy Regeneration -1
Health +30

I can't really think of anything that is better than this.

Energy +10
Dark Damage 11-22 (Requires 9 Curses)
Halves casting time of Curses Spells (Chance 19%)

do the bonuses stack? If so, that is awesome. Almost half the time I can raise a minion instantly and skills recharge in 2.5 seconds.

I can pay someone who has Factions to get me these. I am still new to Prophecies so I'm going to wait to get it, but I would really like these items. Send me a PM if interested in aquiring these or you can contact me in game: Morticia Cruciato

They do indeed stack. I think it works out at something like a 36% chance of getting a normal half time cast/recharge, and 4% chance of getting a quarter time cast/recharge... So with the Bloodstained Boots, raising minions could be done in the blink of an eye:wink:

The dual 20/20 death rod/focus are my favorite combo, too.

If only the rod would not look like a violin stick.

Gold Deadly Cesta
Cold Damage (11-22) Requires 12 Death Magic
Halves Casting time of Spells (Chance 9%)

20% Damage

and swap between 2 offhands right now

Blood Magic +1 (20% chance while using skills)
Health +30

I have also seen a rather nice Green Kole's 2 Handed Staff, dont remember the stats.

Looking for another cesta and then I will prob get rid of one of the offhand items. They both have their uses.

I'm using the same set up for MM, along with the Bloodstained Boots it works brilliantly, instant spammable minions when it all kicks in and the Golem pops up like a Jack in the Box :laugh: (Still makes me laugh when I kill a crab and get a Golem out of it considering theres not exactly much in the way of flesh on a crab :laughing: )

The weapon crafters in leviathan pits and vasburg armory make them. If there's still a collector for them I don't know where they are.

atm i use:

20/20 Collectors blood staff, max dark dmg, +10 energy, insightful staff head (+4 energy) and Enchantment staff wrapping (13% longer), customized.

i tend to do tombs alot with this necro, so this has been a pretty good staff to use for that (orders). i do plan on getting a perfect staff wrapping... and am currently working on getting a 20/20 Collectors curses staff for when i run my Curses/SS build

My N/me rocks +10 energy Cane -1 regen and a Shade Stone. 10 extra engery for -1 regen is pretty cool when you have Soul reaping of 10 or higher.
