In "Of Weapon and Spell Skills" it recommends abandoning the quarterstaff (1d6) for dagger or mattock. mattocks (1d12), i understand but why waste proficiency slots on daggers (1d4) ? --Petzl 01:59, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Because Necromancers get many nice artifact daggers. Loof42 15:07, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Yes, but the odds of finding a +1 or better dagger early in the game are slim. In my opinion it's worth using the enchanted quarterstaff until your first artifact weapon. 06:57, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Intrinsic Robe of Power effect?

It seems to me that wearing a robe of power for a Necromancer does not alter his spellcasting ability. Can anybody confirm this?MrFroon 07:05, October 14, 2009 (UTC)

It worked for me. Human Male Necro, in Wizard mode. lowered my spell precents. Elven2006 00:28, March 10, 2010 (UTC)

Spellbook of summon undead breaks extiction

Sorry, but i have no other way of posting this, as the spellbook in question has no page. I was playing as a necromancer, and summon a Nazgul. since i dominated him, i thought, "Hey, why not two?" I ended up with 11 when I relized something was wrong. There are only nine. So, Someone should check to see if this does the same for other creatures and post it for the rest of us plz.

Doesn't surprise me; a lot of actions don't respect extinction. For example, summon nasties doesn't, as otherwise nasties could be reasonably quickly extincted, rendering the spell harmless. Also, pudding division doesn't, which is why pudding farming is so effective. Particularly in SLASH'EM it seems, a lot of the new ways of generating monsters don't respect extinction. For example, one of the gypsy cards summons an Erinys, which are supposed to be extincted after three have been generated. I think I summoned something like 9 in one game, as I was spamming gypsies for the wishes. So yeah, the spellbook of summon undead probably doesn't respect extinction; kinda breaks the mythos a little when it comes to Nazgul, but oh well... -Ion frigate 02:13, March 10, 2010 (UTC)
