Necro RA's & SC

Been reading a lot about hte following issues, and thought all necro's should read this :

ONLY magic resists transfer to your pet, melee resists are useless

(awaiting confirmation from GOA, but many US necros say) Resists fom AoM and racial bonuses do NOT transfer

Int transfers, but no other stats

SC: assuming the above, you only need to max magic resists, int and any +skills. Dex may help slightly on casting pet :rolleyes:

Alchemy is useless apart from potions. We cannot use charged items or reactives/procs in shade mode

RA's : Acc to all the posts I can find, Wild Minion is bugged and does not work :(

Strike The Soul is also bugged.

Only known working/useful RA's for necro :

Wild Power
Master of Magery
Augmented Acuity
Wild Arcana
MCL
Serenity

If anyone has PROOF to contradict the above please post :eek:
As far as melee resists go, I have tested this, and teh do definitely NOT transfer to the pet.

Ive also found that staff focus, is also bugged. When in inconnu form my nukes cost alot less to cast then when in shade mode. Anyone else found this problem?

when I was using a blue con staff my power was being raped (in shade form) when I finally bought a new one power was ok.

The staff you get at level 5 has *no* focus at all
Staffs : get one spellcrafted for best results, failing that there should be necro staffs on most caster staff vendors, just scroll through the pages.
There is a staff merchant in Gothwaite Harbour, house furthest from the water, tight hand side as you go in, on 5th page on the right.
You cannot delve the stats on the merchant, so buy yellow minimum,

Cast in Inconnu mode ? WTF :p Personally, the only spell I or any other necro I know can cast is summon servant spells :eek:

You also get a focus staff as a reward in the lvl 20 epic.

Many necro spells have a self cast-time (e.g. instant lifetap has 3 second cast time for you, then instant for the pet). Having high dex will reduce this cast time.

Problem is, if pets also meleeing, its usually a longer wait for the swing to finish before the pet casts anyway :p
