also max parasite, but i wouldnt recommend it 120+ feels pretty bad tbh.


Thank you so much. What about jewelcrats? LUM rune or SUR crafted jewels?

i would just use ohm or hel rune as damage will be lacking more than leech.


OK, thanks a lot. A always loved melee necro. I know that the ubers from lvl120 are always harder than with a caster, but I like the challenge in the game. I don't want to respec, but maybe I need at a point. I'll see later.

Any suggestions for mercenary? I started with a necrolyte, but I didn't invest enough for the stuff (I preferred upgrade my stuff for mid game ubers). I think this is one of the best merc for melee chars. So, you picked up which merc?

Why so many points in embalming? Just to buff your rathma's chosen?

I just came back to Median after playing it on early pre 1.8 version and trying out a 2h Scythe build. I cannot imagine not maxing Famine and/or death ward because it gives such good stats.

Furthermore, what kind of crafts should I be looking at? Still rolling with the T4 TU Bonesplitter but I need something better desperately. Melee set Scythe would be ok but I'm aiming for the Leviathan Runeword eventually or there a better Craft I could make (i'm not that familiar with Shrine crafting yet).

8 points- Voraxity
4 points - Onslaught
25 points - Deathlord
6 points - Demonic Commun

3 points - Purity (later after respec, I will choose another mastery, or pump more to Rhatma)

1. Every point into embalming increases your life through mold the flesh.
2. My bad - I am maxing death ward leaving deathlord as 1 pointer.
3. Famine works great even as 1 pointer if you have enough strength and physical/weapon damage.
4. Leviathan needs two Qor runes which I didn't get to this point (lvl139 and about 80 fautz runs). I was using +297 max damage craft (took a lot of shrines to get) until I found reaper's hand. Crafting wit intimidating shrines for deadly strike is best.
