Isn't Revive + thorns very effective vs. Melee monster/melee duelers?
Express your opinions on whether I messed up and if so, should I remake
A Skelliemancer is easy. After the 43 points to max SM and RS and to get a Summon Resist you only need to place 1 more skill point and that one goes to Amp. After that you are free to do whatever you want. So you didnít really mess up. You did however make some choices that I disagree with, but that is personal.
Maxing out Revive is not necessary. 1 point with a few +skills gives you enough Revives. More than about 10 and it becomes a real problem, IMO, to move them around and to use them well.
BS really needs more synergies than you can provide at this point. I find it very weak in Hell without at least 2 maxed synergies and Marrowwalks. That is why I donít make Summon/Bone-hybrids with Skellies.
You donít need to remake. Your build can do fine throughout the rest of the game. I see it as a few missed opportunities that you can correct next time you make a Skelliemancer.
Thorns doesn't work that well against Melee monsters anymore, because of the change in monster life to damage ratio. They have a lot of life and deal relatively little damage. But try it out and let us know how it goes.
As MM said, you don't have to re-build him.. But seeing as you are reasonably wealthy, and are going to duel, you might want to. Take a look at Dracoy's Summon/Bone PvP Hybrid Guide to get a better idea of what an almost perfect (yes, for the purpose it's made it is quite perfect imo) hybrid dueler would look like.. And since you are thinkin' of putting points in spirit, you might want to go all the way and make a hybrid.
No-one and nothing is forcing you to restart.. Unless you want your necro to really be all he can be (especially in duels).
And revive is not a "good" skill to max. It's, at most, mediocre or decent. The main reason good big level chars would use revives is tanking -only 1 point needed - (and revive shielding/tele glitching ), and summon/bone hybrids don't really need the tanking..
And bone spirit sure don't suck. Marrowwalks are almost essential for Dracoys build. Without them,though, the spirit is a joke.
