I somehow feel that the summoner necro really does need good gear once you get into hell.
I have basically nothing, and I really mean basically nothing. My wand has maybe a few +SM +RS on it, a nagle ring, some other rare ring with resists, and undead crown and a head with some + to skellie skills on it. Not sure about boots. Ammy has some resistances on it and maybe + 1 to necro skills.
My merc has no gear at all. I have nothing useful for him.
I can get a kill in act 1 blood more (in hell) if I use a fire golem and iron maiden. It's slow but I can get skellies.....
However things are so slow... soo slow and without good gear the skellie mancer dies so easily. I have almost 800 life but I really can't afford to get hit at all.
I just tried to do my hell forge and both times got killed less then a min into clearing.
Am I missing something or do you really need better gear then whats led on? While I was able to parade through normal and nightmare.... hell is quickly becoming aggravating.
What can I do?
