I have an Ossein Ram with Necromancy, (not necro mage). And it does not cast conduit. Does anyone else have a pet with Necromancy (not necro mage) and has observed their pet casting conduit?
My Spider with Necro mage casts it all the time.
I tell you the truth, tis better to do 10 damage on the right target than 100 damage on the wrong target.
Breaking in the young since 2002
I think they have this backwards, necromage should have no mastery and necro should have the mastery. After all, jack of all trades - master of none. @Kyronix
They and other pets have placeholder skills so it does not cost so much to add necro or magery.
If they did not, it would cost 3002 points to make a necromage pet.
Its best to learn how the game works before you proclaim bug and want to change things. You look at the lore and knowledge screen in black print to see what a Pet can actually use.
The necro magic on pets has been horrible since the beginning of Pub 97. I told them about the issues of necro pets at the first meet and greet after pub 97.
Conduit shows skulls but does nothing and never has.
Pet AI has always been horrible. A pet with necromage will use both magics. But the AI determines what is cast from all those choices. They are not smart enough to cast corpse skin and then use a fire magic spell.
A Chiv pet only uses consecrate for 1 hit, but it costs full mana. They also turn EoO on and off. They may decide to turn it on and turn it on again in two consecutive hits and do no damage, just spend mana for each. (EoO turns off when used a second time, just like with toons)
You started with:
Either you didn't activate Necro or you did not wait long enough. If you are using EC, I dont know what the graphic is.
For the second time, please read the thread before posting. Or prove it, show me a screenshot with your necro pet casting it. You should test things with pets before posting..
@Mariah any update on my vampire bat issue?
am intrigued about this “dark steed” & “silver steed” though.
Which dev was routinely killed by these things?
You can also use a Tsuki Wolf.
