It would also be nice to know how much mastery of necromancy% is needed for minions greater than wraith.

I hope that doesn't fall under sharing information category.

Minions come every 20% of combined necromancy + mastery of necromancy.

When monsters are being coded, there are precoded set of skills/spells, known as 'kits'. These kits are ranked from 1 to 5, so my guess is that 'skills 5' would mean that the mob has 'skillkit #5'. As to what the exact values of them are, well, your guess is almost as good as mine :)

Now that 'haunt' is in, could it be possible to add information regarding the haunt-effects of different minions to the list?

Last minion of the guild is Herald of death, reached at 200% combined skill and mastery.

It is basically similar to graveborn or strigoi that it uses weapons and gear that you give it to him and also has relatively good combat skills. In addition to this it uses some of the spells but not as many as lich or other casting minions. It can be bound like ethereal and gains similar benefits to it from the binding making it relatively strong tanking minion.

Special to this minion is that it also uses a new combat maneuver from the Scions of the cursed blood guild called "gangrenous eviscerate" that does moderate damage and adds a disease that ticks damage over time. Your local dhamphirs can combo some of their stuff with it if you happen to party with one (they have other stuff that you like to get from partying wih them). In addition to this they channel energies directly from nether, healing them and granting combat momentum for spells like soulburn, touch of the nether and bane of the living for their summoner, adding a new twist to exping that requires attention but rewards with increased damage with reduced sp costs.

I'm trying to figure out the best strategy for a earth priest who actually doesn't play 6h a day Smile

Does anyone know (Belannaer does, but does he answer Wink)
Is the lvl 0 minion of the higher tier always better than lvl 1 minion from the lower tier?

I managed to kick my necromancy to 97% and with the help of bloodskull and my whopping 1% of mastery I am able to dominate Wraith.

In the past when playing with my Wight it started to really work as it got lvl 1 but it required a 100k of XP to actually do it. Now the Wraith seems to require 95k to level up and I am trying to think.

Should an average 3h XP session be run with lvl 0 Wraith and maybe get it to lvl 1 at some stage. Or would Wight level up faster and would lvl 1 Wight actually rock more than lvl 0 Wraith? And what about knocking it down even further and leveling up a skeleton warrior? Could that bone pile get all the way to lvl 4 in same time and benefit from even bigger boosts?

I have never tried summoning a skeleton warrior never so I don't know how much XP it would need and what share it would get.

- Jabari

PS: Mastery of necromancy raises ridiculously slow

Well tested out the thing after boot.
Lvl 0 wraith needs 110k xp to advance to level 1
Lvl 0 wight needs 95k xp to advance to level 1

So it seems pointless to use "older" minion if you can afford better one. *sigh*
