summoner necro changes?
« on: January 11, 2016, 05:17:20 AM »
I had read a few posts about how minions were underpowered and not viable for end game and that Salan was going to be implementing a patch or changes that would make summons a viable build in endgame.

any hints on when this might be worked on? (im aware that you're a busy man Salan and you have a lot of stuff already in the works, just hoping to get a possible timeline on some necromancer changes)

From the patch notes:

-----------------
NECROMANCER

Infectious Touch
DOT damage now scales with players focus slightly
(results in approx 25% DOT damage increase with 500 focus)

Master Minions
All master minions now have a DR buff inherently assigned to them when being summoned.
25% at 1 skill point
35% at 5
45% at 10
55% at 15

All master minion BUFFS at 10 skill points now give 25% DR up from 10%
All master minion BUFFS at 15 skill points now give 50% DR up from 25%, allowing the castable DR buff to all necromancer minions to top out at 150% when stacked from all three master minions, instead of previous 75%.
This will help in end game tiers.
----------------------

Haven't played it through to end game but this would certainly seem to go a good way to resolve what mostly covered in the older forum build posts.

Richy.

Looks to have been around the end of November 2015 (Patch 1311).

Salan seems quite an organised chap and you can see all the archived notes and recent patch stuff on the dedicated subforums here:http://forums.synergiesmod.com/index.php?board=2.0 :)

ahh thank you. its been difficult trying to track down all relevant information regarding summoner builds and all of the behind the scenes stats and such.
