    Bone Armor - 1
    Teeth - 1

    Summon Skills:
    All - 1

    Curses:
    Amplify Damage - 1
    Iron Madien - 1
    Lifetap - 1
    Weaken - 1
    Terror - 1
    Decrepify - 1
    Lower Resist - 15 (no more)

    OR

    Golem Mastery - 20
    Clay Golem - 1

    Revive - 1

    I had a necro straight psn nova who was pretty decent. Lower res, psn nova and all the synergies. You get a merc with insight and just tele around spamming lower res and novas.

    Well, I went with the Poison Nova Necro due to the high number of sorcs, figured that would help out everyone.

    Typhus_DOM presently #3 on the Necro ladder chart.

    For pvm you should go with the summoner; see my summoner tank strategy guide in the Diablo 2 subforum.

    Poison necros are excellent for pvp, I would choose either setup.
