Hey guys,
Let's use this thread for questions on skill locations (normal skills probably, as elites are posted already), items and armor and really whatever. As long as it has to do with a Necromancer in some way and you don't want to make a new thread, people here can help you.

On that note, I'd ask you to use this thread first before posting a new thread. Meaning asking here "where is Signet of Agony? I cannot find it" instead of making a thread about it. Think of it this way. This thread is for answers to specific questions. New threads are for discussion on something (like a build)

in pre-sear ascalon i could not find the necro tunic from a collector but i found the gloves, boots, and leggings. Do you know where the collector that has the necro tunic is in pre-sear ascalon?

I went to do the reversing the scales quest and fought the boss(Lord Timon I think) anyway the one that has the three executioners in front of him. He casts Animate bone fiend and Barbs. I remember someone posted on this forum that he also casts Verata's Sacrifice. Does anyone know this for sure? I have fought him three times now and have not seen it. I would like to find this skill before Copperhammer if anyone knows where I can get it. Thanks in Advance.

The collector is in Fort Ranik.

If you have five 30 armor pieces on, does that mean your total armor is 150. I guess I'm asking, because I can buy one 60 armor and am wondering if it'll really help that much.

And also, if I went with just scar patterns, am I at a disadvantage in winter conditions?

Armor is not added up from the individual pieces (exception Shield), if you have 5 AL on your head and 60 AL on your body then any hit on your head will only go up against 5 AL. If you were using a 5 AL Shield at the same time then you'd get 10 AL against attacks hitting your head, as long as they aren't from behind. You may be able to find some more thorough guides by searching various fansites.


And also, if I went with just scar patterns, am I at a disadvantage in winter conditions?
Scar Patterns (and Monk Tattoos) do not have an inherent disadvantage and weather is only cosmetic.

Does all fissure armor look the same, but, you can choose which benefit you get? Am I right?

Anyone know?

The collecter in Skyward Reach, just out of Augury Rock has the 20/20 Cruel Staff (Blood Magic req. 9 ), and he exchanges it for Topaz Crests, so start killin' them Sand Drakes, ya hea' ? :D . Darn fine staff, I use one o' them myself, with a couple o' lovely upgrades. I don't know about the Accursed Staff though. Didn't bother to look for it, since I don't use curses. :p

By the way, I think the collector is called John...

A quick question. Which droknars forge necro armor would most of you pick and why? When I got my warrior to dorknars I investigated on these forums to see about the best choice. I was simply wonder what that is for necro? I understand the differences in each armor selection I would just like to know which one u all personaly prefer and why. I am looking for a set that is versitile and works well in both pve and pvp. Currently I am using a N/R. Any information would be much appreciated.

There is a Grim Cesta, that improves casting speed and skill recharge using Soul Reaping skills. What soul reaping skills are there? SR is just a passive attribute with no skills attached to, AFAIK. So what does this thingie do?

I assume they just went ahead and made the improve casting speed and skill recharge effects for every attribute, not taking into consideration that Soul Reaping has no linked skills. :rolleyes:

Yes, I can confirm you can cap bone fiend from him. I don't think he has Vereta's sacrifice.

When you have done the Villanity of Galrath quest and you return again to that place, Vereta will spawn there from whom you can cap Vereta's sacrifice. I know this for sure because I capped all three Vereta skills from him.

Vereta is surrounded with a (whole) lot of apprentices so this can be quite hard to accomplish. I came running in with my army of minions (about 15+), but it seems all the apprentices there carry Vereta's Aura, so I had a huge problem as soon as I ran into the first apprentice :happy65: Had fun though.

I succeeded a second time with Putrid Explosions. The apprentices stick really close together so it was like one big chain reaction.

I personally prefer the Scar pattern for the increased Energy, it also has no negative side effect. Whether the look could be improved is another matter.

Thanks for the response. I actually did a little more digging myself and found the anwsers that I was looking for. :happy34: Decided to go for the scar pattern myself.

I am just passed the searing and diggin a little around here I have see this pic:

http://img193.echo.cx/my.php?image=gw0527hh.jpg

My question is, How can a Necro reach to 61 of energy?

Base is 30, plus 10 of armor 40... is there a focus/weapon that gives you the other 21?

If so... what/where is it?

Thanks in advance

Base is 20, not 30, as it is for all classes. All armors give at least +10, Scar Pattern gives another +7 (I think)

None of this is really important though. To get energy like that, you're probably carrying an item with +15 energy -1 energy regen. This can come on a focus which will also have the normal +12 energy for a max focus, or on a truncheon like I use. (I use a +12 energy 20/20 focus in the offhand)

[edit] Oh, and 1h weapons with the +15/-1 mod can be found in the Kryta area east of the Ascalon Settlement, for the most part. Check the desert/shiverpeaks collector list for the other ones.

Is it just me or are things so organized that Necros are just about useless in GvG? :mad: Have noticed that a minority of teams use a Necro and now I really know why! I am an L20 at the Ring of Fire so can handle myself well. Have done maybe 25-30 GvG and it's just a waste of space for my guild. :( Tried numerous different builds but almost always the same..targeted by tank, 3 hits, dead! Yes even the tank buster build, and same thing. Finally gave up even participating.
Don't know if I want suggestions or just to vent!

Ok, Last night I finally killed My, erm, Evil half! My Room Mate found a thread containing the "recipe" and it really worked..I didnt have all the things listed, but here's what I used and it took Her right out..

Awaken The Blood
Blood of Master
Dark Fury
Demonic Flesh
Dark Pact
Deadly Swarm

I threw in a Capture Signet for good measure and to fill in the empty slot.. Once You get in there, hit Your evil Twin with Deadly Swarm only and then use the strongest staff you have.. I never moved from My original stance and She was down and dead!
I hope this works for anyone else who's having the same trouble I was.. :winking47

i wasted this whole day looking for the collector that gives the 60 AL necro head armor with blood bonus (im guessing its in the desert since the other 3 heads are there) i looked all over the desert and asked everyone i could.. i just cant finde the bastard

please help :{

(and please no "just craft one in droknars forge" the rolls cost WAY too much for me)

Gangrel
03-10-2005, 00:39
Dont know where the guy is but, you can get 5 wood and pay 20 gold to craft one roll... So 25 rolls is 125 wood and 500 gold. 500 gold isnt much and you can easily get wood by salvageing staffs bows and such. The easiest crafter to get to is north-east of sardelac sanctum.

Which collector and where is he/she that gives the death weapons and foci that give plus 15/-1regen?

Pretty much due North of Dunes of Despair for offhand. Item is Enchanted Lodestones. The collector is by one of the teleport pads. Not only is the offhand +15/-1, it's also +12 energy base and +30 health. :surprise:

The weapon with +15/-1 is just to the east of Beetletun. It isn't max damage, but really, who cares. As a necro, if you're relying on your rod to do damage, you've got problems. :howdy:

My Necro has both items and scars on legs and arms. I get 75 energy, but only 2 pips of regen. So, carry a staff with you and use it for most of your combat. I only switch to the 75 config when I hit zero energy (which isn't that often).

Hi,

anyone has a male necro with 15K necrotic and still the standard necrotic leggins around?

I so badly wanted to see how they combine - have a look at Dark Wax here (http://forums.gwonline.net/showpost.php?p=3752454&postcount=260), I'd like to give him the 15K tunic, but this may complete destroy the carefully composed dirty style ;-))

So I beg for someone to PM me a pic with: Male Nec, 15K necrotic tunic, standard necrotic leggins, no (or scary) arms, any boots. It should show middle to upper part of him, similar to the right of the linked pics.

Thank you for your help!

Have fun!

Anyone know where to find a +12 energy focus with 20% chance at +1 death magic?

I know theres one in Maguuma Stade with +30 HP as well, but its only +20 energy.

Does a +12 energy version exist?

I know that Bortaks Bone Cesta is +12 and Death Magic +1 (20% chance while using skills), but its damn rare, and I havn't been able to get my hands on one yet (if you are selling one, please PM me with price).

Oh, and would this enable me to create lvl 19 fiends? With 16 Death they are 18, would the +20% raise them to 19 occasionally, or is 18 the max level?


Cheers :happy34:

Need some help with armor. I'm new so bare with me.

The base armor on all necro (most others in the game too) prevent what type of damage? I'm thinking spell/staff damage right?

I have a staff that give +7 armor resistance to physical damage. My armor is + against piercing. So only physical resistance armor + will protect me from melee?

Armour protects you againt everything but somethings more than others for example piercing dmg will do less to you because of the armour you have.(note all right away dmg spells hit you in the chest)

Do things like vampiric touch and soul feast that say "steal x amount of health" count as healing? so if i use aura of the lich would soul feast give me half health or since it says steal would i get the full hp amount?

Ekrin

Nevermind the skill no longer states that healing period is halved. didnt check that before must have been changed.

Take Awaken the blood and some non benificial sacrifice spells, he uses AtB and sacrifices his life away; poor guy :wink:

I think you can take healing breeze as well, I read somewhere he only uses it if he has a condition (ie poison bleeding) which he won't have unless you take sacrifices that cause poison or bleeding. I wasn't a monk so I took those sacrifices for the extra degen.

Make sure you are using superior necromancer runes, and not anything like.. say.. superior Vigor :)

5 x -55 & a -50 offhand will get you there. Just make absolutely sure your runes are right.

I'm very frustrated, but glad I don't get the -15% till after the searing! any help would be appreciated!

snowkissed
26-06-2006, 17:28
There are corpses on the other side of the trap that are "reachable" by the spell. Just try casting the bone minion spell and they should be brought to life, and the minion should run towards to you, thus setting off the trap.
