I know there are guides out there for pure summoners, the one I read didn't really cover this.
As i think about the next weird build I want to try, I am wondering what is a reliable way to get the first kill to build up your army? I like to use mercs but hate to rely on them for anything. Would a bow in conjunction with a golem do it? as long as all I need to do is kill a quill rat when solo to get my first skeleton this should work?
