Me and a friend are playing as a necro/sorc but we are both new to these classes, the necro shall be PSN and the Sorc shall be cold/Ice.

Questions:
For PSN dagger should necro get bone sheild to enalbe him to go in close and not die?

Which shield should ice sorc get Energy shield or first cold shield?
Should the sorc be stacking vitality or energy - does this depend on using energy shield?

One more question - if you where a fire sorc which shield/defense would you get to stay alive? :)

Thanks,

I'll assume you're playing softcore.

I would max psn skills, LR, and bone armor.

In a 2 man team I'm not a big fan of Energy Shield because of mana burn.
I would max chilling armor for your partners sake so he has more defense.

Same as before. I would max CA instead of going mana shield

Thanks for the reply, yes we are playing SC at the moment.

bone sheild seems to be working well jut hope it scales and is still useful late game with all the insane damage that enemys deal :)

max bone armor is a life saver end game (I play HC). Psn necro is a very dangerous build though especially since you and a sorc will have no tank. Rethinking it.. you might want to max spirit blades instead of LR so you have recastable tanks. Otherwise you and your sorc buddy are going to be running around like mad while meph and diablo chase you around lol. If you use enigma later then I guess you could both tele around and you could just use psn nova, but you'd both have to work together well and have good micro abilities

If you use energy shield, get high mana regen rate. The main issue that people have with mana burn can often (but not always) with regen rates. It's likely a bit more difficult in HU, but people have always complained about this, and I never had issues when I used Eshield.

so for the necro still a little undecided on where to spend points.
60 points for PSN.

then i need LR, Bone armour, Blades and Golem Mastery?

LR because it Synergises perfectly with both characters as we are both elemental attacks and will greatly increase our combined offensive capability.

Problem we have is we are both squishy hence the other 3 other defensive skills highlighted. Golem mastery as we are using golems for general cover, but golems will get owned on bosses + the longer cast time compared to blades is a pain. Bone armour will help the necro but not the sorc.

Perhaps the following:
60 Pnts PSN
10 LR
10 Bone Armour
20 Golem Mastery or 20 Blades?

Thoughts?
