    Im making a Necro mage for pvm (no pvp) and wondered what spell combos people use?

    Reading spell details it seems i should ...

    1. get into wrath form for mana leech with spells
    2. shadow wisp
    3. cast Evil omen (for dmage increase)

    4? Flame strike? strangle? wither? energy bolt?
    Totally lost on this one.. which is the main damage spells of this template i should be using?

    All advice appreciated :)

    The biggest thing about playing a mage of any type in PvM is you need to know what your opponent's weakest resist is along with using the appropriate slayer type.

    For example, if you're fighting Navery.
    Use a spider slayer (not arachnid) for triple damage. Her lowest resist is fire, so casting corpse skin will lower it further. Then it's fireball and flamestrike.

    Yeah what Driven says.

    Ideally get a nice collection of slayer books and use these when fighting. Also as above, use the correct spells to target the weakest resist.

    Flamestrike is my favourite.

    One of the big problems, is that unfortunately, Slayer Spellbooks have absolutely no effect on Necro spells.
