Can someone walk me through how to use command undead?
Any value in conduit ?

    Command undead is a “spell” that works similar to taming… cast the spell and target the undead critter you wish to command.  Like taming sometimes it succeeds and the critter will obey and sometimes it fails and you get attacked.

    Unfortunately it is very buggy.  Commanded critters aren’t bonded so you can’t recall with them and they often disappear when going through moongates.  Also, if you lose connection for any reason they poof.

    This mastery would be much improved if they acted like bonded pets until released or the character timed out of the game.

    I don’t know the list of critters it works on, but I do believe it is limited to naturally spawning ones… for example you can use it on a spawned skeletal dragon but not on an animated skeletal dragon.

    I’ve never found conduit to be that worthwhile. If anyone has a good use for it, I’d like to know. I often find other masteries in my necro characters to be more effective (parrying, mace, swords, magery for example)

    Conduit has some interesting interactions with Poison Strike. Poison Strike will deliver a larger burst of damage to the main target, and has splash damage that delivers lesser damage to nearby targets. Conduit will make every target in the radius get hit by the main Poison Strike burst, which causes multiple splash damage effects to go off as well, essentially acting like a Poison Strike cluster bomb. A pity though that Poison Strike isn't affected by Slayer Spellbooks :/
  • Have you tested that?  You might be surprised by the lack of results

    As long as vampiric embrace works no one cares if the rest of necro is broken..
