I didn't say deathlord should be used (but I'd totally recommend it on a HC spec - which is what started the whole deathlord discussion in the first place) - just clearing up how the penalty works since a lot of people have misconceptions about it.

@Jaedong: minion hp isn't important, because you keep resummoning shadows for BtS. As for your big dudes, you can summon them before buffing into deathlord. The %tcd provided by deathlord is a must, remember also BtS gives you -50% dr, you can get pretty much one-shot by mobs like serafiends/moon knights as they have pierce attacks which is the main weakness of totemnec in terms of survability, and deathlord helps that. Not even mention the str/dex it gives which helps gearing a lot and can give room to some vita. I've played probably over 50 totemnecs in HC and the results of deathlord are extremely clear and should always be used imo - u seem to be making assumptions mostly from theory.

Seems like both Minion Damage and HP scale with clvl, only way to raise Rampagor Poison Damage is raising clvl and slvl.

Totem Damage does scale with clvl (sorry stevie I was wrong lul), but not their HP.

assumptions from theory?
its not like im not playing necro on hc, only because my heroes die it doesnt mean my setup sucks already had 2 hc 120 necros this ladder alone
thats me being bad, i dont really know how deathlord prevents me from dying vs the crystal ball lightning because im too bad to avoid it

one shot by serafiends/moon knights?
wtf seems im playing different median, they never even dealed close to that much damage, not even anyway close and im teleporting around with Bts alot like every other totemancer

how is gearing a problem, necromancer can go full str for every gear he wants and still have way more damage than he ever needs in any situation
thats the tradeoff where opinions differ, meatshield surviveability for necro surviveability

as i said, from MY experience the only times i had been in danger was when my minions died/thinned out too quickly vs broadside or something else that has huge burst dmg in short period of time or when i couldnt manage to avoid oneshot spells like crystal ball at inarius

@ minion damage i will return with the screenshots after i return home from work . last evening i have checked the numbers with no gear , then with a t6 field plate and all the numbers changed according to the %boost , both from physical damage delt by rampagors , their poison damage and totem's damage . if it's just a display bug or something like that , someone who wholds the exact information please enlighten us .
