    Why doesn't the Necromancer start off with a Buckler?

    I find it strange. Just an empty slot begging to be filled. Barbs, Zons and Pallys get it, so why not Necros?

    I've never even thought about this! But my guess is that the starting equipment just isn't very well thought-out.

    Why would he? That old fella doesnt even know how to use one!
    Hes just waiting to get his first ClassSpecific shield!

    Barb/Ama/Pala/Assa are all warriors, so they know how to use one.

    The Druid/Sorc/Necro are mainly casters.

    Pretty sure there weren't any necro-specific shields in the original game anyway. It would have made sense to give him a shrunken head in the expansion, but considering how weak starting gear is, it wouldn't have mattered anyway. Actually, the necromancer gets arguably the best starting item anyway, since it gives him a +skill that can actually be used for the first several levels at least, whereas most other starting items become obsolete more quickly.

    Didnt think of that.. In the original there werent any class specific items. Only wands/staffs/scepters with class specific skills on.

    Didn't he start with a buckler in D2 Classic?

    He spent all of his money for his cool jacket, to find out he couldn't afford a shirt and shield.
