I spec'd a necro to 103 and am no where near the stats I need for STR and DEX, and have LAH'd damn near every socket and am still 200~ points shy to use the necro offhand. That, and I only have about 3K mana and havent put a single point into energy.
It started working for me at level 110 after charms from 110 ubers. Dont soket lah runes, perfect topaz or um runes, later on, as i see the more energy you have the better results. Better than flat mana, or mana %.
The start is the worst, use as less strenght required items as possible, dont care about defense, i specced into veil king 1 point, max passive to his life and max iron golem, they tank for you everything (ended 150k veil king life, 75k iron golem, both regen full life ultra fast, survive whole duncraig and barrells).
You need mana tide totem, and thats the problem because its a lot invest into dex for necro shields, i used mo it with - requirements, and 4 sockets jewels with- requirements, ended with something like 230 dex not 440, so its a lot points into energy.
At the beginnig i could cast once, and slowly as you play and improve its getting better, in the end you are tanky, have summons, kill everything very fast, its fun build.
Really recommend go for summons and passive to them with avoid, not for totems, yes mana tide totem is a paper then, but it has huge radius and you cast it behind your back theres no threat and you can cast it 4 times, veil king and iron golem was a life change to me.
