I've been coasting along with my necromancer so far but I've finally hit the wall. My chain lightning is doing virtually no damage and I've even attempted to put on my sorc's belials and snowclash..but my blizzard still does NO damage?

I know there's no simple answer besides git gud but my minions aren't surving damage and my spells aren't doing any damage. The only way to put a dent in groups is to hope a few of them die so I can start to spam Corpse Explosion.

Thoughts? Because I don't see gear helping me. Necro spells aren't powerful enough, yet hell domain is seemingly designed to F necros over due to teleporting and all the AoE damage just destroying my army. Oh and one final thought - seeing as chain lightning just tickles Diablo and blizzard even with my -FR gear does NOTHING...should I be using bone spirit? I hear it's what you should use for diablo but that doesn't seem to scratch him much either even with blood shield on.

Welcome to the forums!

Have you tried the 'all-in VIT' plan where you just equip everything to pump that stat and don't care about anything else? If your skellies are dying too readily it sounds like that may be the root problem.

Yes for some reason Diablo in Hell is insanely resistant to cold damage, you're actually better off trying fire although it seems counterintuitive. Apocalypse, even good ol' Guardian might be able to take him down a bit faster.

Hey Shiro, I don't have much in the way of Vit, I haven't been crafting much because alchemist boxes are incredibly rare. I feel like a coward but I've just shelved my Necro for now, I was lucky enough to get a low HS on my Rogue and she's tearing things up in hell save her squishiness.

I do have an arinoch stave so I may try your suggestion with the fire damage. I don't really want to play my necro like a sorc but ay it happes.

Well there ya go. Give your necro a break, and hope your rogue grinds out a few relevant recipes or equipment. I've always thought that's the way the game was supposed to be played anyway.

I finally beat Hell diablo on my rogue after like 15 tries, it's really easy but I'm impatient and my golem stinks :p

I'm hoping to get some good recipes, mostly upgrade unique weapon and harbingers

I would recommend to keep grinding and leveling up.

Set aside equipment the boosts Mag with Mag Potion by the standby. Whatever brings your Mag highest. Seek out Magic shrines and shrines that randomize stats for Mag, go back to town, put on the gear and suck down a Mag potion. Read up any and all of the stashed spell books you can before the effects wear off.

Bone Spirit becomes more important for bosses. Keep your skellies and golem placed where they block mobs from closing in on you. Animate zombies once you have max minions. Revives become just as important later on. Pay attention to enemy's immunity and use correct spells for mass effect. Ice Blast is good for knock back.

It is on to wage a running battle as you pick off mobs one by one. Enemy Necromancers can always be a challenge though as they could end up summoning dozens and dozens of new mobs or archers.

right now I'm farming torment hell domain on my rogue trying to get necro recipes for Vit. and yeah I do teleport my army on top of things I want to kill but they aren't surviving Diablo's AoE. I've found rathma's ring and an onan so my golem can tank well but my dps isn't there
