    Not really new but I am a returning player.

    Level 86

    Base stats:
    55 str
    rest HP

    Current gear:
    Mage Plate Enigma
    Shako
    Arch
    Mara
    Homo
    2 Soj
    Magefists
    boots sadly aldur's advance

    1 summon GC
    HellfireN

    Merc NM Might aura
    Tal helm
    Fort
    Infinity

    Skills
    major skills
    mastery 20
    mage 20
    raise skel 20
    corpus exp 20


    I know I lack anni and more summon GCs and a better pair of boots.

    Do I need any improvements to handle Ubers? Would it be worth it to get a hold of call to arms and beast? Whats a better pair of boots? I can't remember them. As for my last few skill points would 1 point on spear/wall/prison/armor make a viable Bone Armor?

    Do you really plan to kill the Ubers with a summoner?

    You wont be able to do Ubers with a summoner build.

    Because theres lack of Crushing Blow and the ability to tank.

    Revive is very important if you want to do ubers with a summoner. The skills you listed above simply won't do the job. (Unless revive is part of "major skills.")

    You can get Urdars in the River of Flame to provide Crushing Blow; there are also lower level giants in the Durance of Hate that have Crushing Blow. Make a game, verify that you have Urdars in the River of Flame, then (ideally) verify that you have giants in the Durance of Hate. (Maybe you don't need both. I haven't played bnet D2 in a long time.) Then, open the portal, go get your first batch of Urdars, hit the portal and Telestomp those ubers. :) Make sure to only spawn one at a time.

    There are plenty of guides on running ubers, so you may want to google/consult them first.

    Long story short: Yes, a summoner can do Ubers, but you are not yet quite prepared.

    Also, you can build a smiter paladin pretty easily that will beat ubers in short order. You should try to beat them with your necro. But, if that fails, build a smiter. :)

    Edit: One last thing: When I was on bnet (oh, so many years ago), necro torches were very cheap. If all else fails, just scrape together enough gems/runes to buy one.

    Forgot to update. I got +19 to summoning skills going on. Also got Beast for free. Revive only needs 1 point since of all the +. If I wanted to add anymore I would need 8 more summon gcs and anni for +28 over all. You sure summoner with 35+ minions can't do this?

    You have to prove me wrong, but I dont think its doable.

    I dont even know how youll be able too, since youll need tons of ar on your monsters to hit those bosses. And attack speed, and crushing blow. And being able to survive Mephs Conviction aura + elemental skellies etc..

    I do like to know how you fair though!
