Is there a RA that makes the necropet crit on the spells? From a few ppl I have heard that Wild Minion is only critting on the melee

Wild minion is only on melee and afaik is broken anyway.
You want "Wild Power" to crit on spells, and "Wild Arcana" to crit on duration effects such as dot's, snares etc.
"Mastery of Magery" will also raise your nuke dammage but will not affect crits.

Regards,
Tilda

From what I understand the Wild Power is what -I- cast (Can't remember name but the lifedrain that can be interrupted ehile moving)

For necromancer, spell damage done by pet is spell damage done by caster.

You understand wrong. Whether you cast the spell instantly giving the pet the 3 sec cast time or the necromancer has the cast time with the pet casting instantly WildPower still applies.

Tilda's post is correct, Wild Power is what your looking for. Thatll increase crits on all spells (powertaps, insta-lifetaps, ranged lifetaps, etc)

yea WP is one of the few RAs that actually works for necros. Wild arcana also works but necros dont get a msg saying it worked atm - its fixed in 1.67 or so.

Wild Minion seems to work for me tbh. I get pretty frequent messages about pet crit in melee but that's on pl, haven't tested in rvr

Are you sure, i'd swear i'd seen messages like "Your snare is extra effective" when snaring stuff?

Even just two or three levels of it, you really notice the difference. And with most other RA's being useless for Necros you might as well pile points into it early.
