    All, this is probably another simple question. I'm trying to maximize the damage output by my Necro-Mage.

    Can you all confirm that necro damage (i.e. from wither) is impacted by SDI items? It is not impacted by slayer qualities on spellbooks?

    I think that is correct as the spellbook slayer property in effect enhances eval int (which only affects magery spells). So it is to my advantage while using wither to carry a scrappers or one of the new invasion spellbooks with high SDI? Do you all agree?

    Thanks!

    Correct a slayer on the spellbook doesnt affect the Necro spell damage.

    The SDI is a harder one, according to Stratics SDI doesnt affect necro spells but I have found that when I equip a Tome SDI25 I do seem to get a few more points of damage so I have always felt that SDI does affect Necro spells but im certain your going to get a few posts that contradict me on this.

    I'm pretty sure SDI affects necro spell damage. Stratics information is horribly outdated.

    SDI definitely affects necromancy spell damage, while slayer properties definitely do not.

    The extra 25% damage from my scrappers makes a huge difference in spawning, from 2 hit killing lizardmen to one hit killing them. (overall, including the book, I use 63% SDI)

    What are you all using to add SDI to your suit? I only have 41 SDI. 25 from scrappers, 8 from ring, and 8 from bracelet. I had on 5 more with a pendant of the magi, but it was killing my armor resists with out the gorget.

    What else is a good add? Thx!

    Spirit speak effects the damage output of necro spells the same way eval does magery spells. As your SS gets closer to 120 your di will go up.

    Kasa of the Raj-in +12
    Pendant of the Magi +5
    Midnight Bracers +10
    Scrappers +25
    Crystalline Ring +20
    Spellwoven Britches +10
    Bracelet from Loot +12 (max on loot jewerly)

    This will get you to 94 SDI

    If you throw on the Greymist tunic and gloves they each have +2 to bring your total to 98 SDI.

    If you find one of the invasion spellbooks with 30 SDI then you have 99 SDI before any of the Greymist armour.

    Your resists will suck, and probably won't have 100% LRC but you will get huge numbers from spells. Combine that with a level 6 focus on spellweaving.
