I also love the Necro Summoner but I have done varius things different.
Since the Passiv payback at Chronomancer is cheaper in Beta i maybe trie some things again…
Basically my minions and I survive with ward. Actual i m at Wave 142 with this but need a bit luck with the enemies.
The DMG would be enough but even with all the ward we (Minions and I) can hardly suvive.
Another Problem is that i sometimes die because my Minions block me. So we really need it changed that we always can run through our minions.
And compared to other Builds/Classes it is overall to weak, imho.
Here is a Video, i started with a lvl 19 Hardcore Acolyte to show the mechanics from “Mark for Death” and “Harvest” for Speedleveling (yes even in HC but not Masochist xD).
Later I go on with my lvl 88 Necro showed complete Build, Gear and some Waves in Arena how it works.
But its German, sorry…
Thats how i play:
Really important that u find Rings and Amu with “Turquoise” in its Naming:
I prefer this weapon even with one dead stat, hope to find a better one:
Maybe we find together some improvements. I tried sooo much but nothing feels like more DMG than the actual build and however, the bigger Problem are ripping Minions or Waves with Single Target Void Monsters.
