But that's a shit build. Real p8 summoner's merc does almost 100k dmg alone with amplify damage and the skeletons do around 42k dmg.

Say hi to the real high end summon necro:

Probably use magefist over trang, it adds +1 to CE

If you’re in hardcore, maybe consider even StormShield over Homunculus. With a Ber, it has 43%DR, and the same block speed as shael’d Homunc, which is nice. If you’re not afraid of melee dmg, then Spirit is of course better. Maybe a compromise is enough dex for 40% block on Spirit, but I think people hate that idea for some reason.

On switch, consider a Darkforce or Boneflame to add an extra +1 over Spirit

I still find myself preferring Infinity/Andy’s/Bramble on merc for thorns damage, and then an Insight golem over a Pride golem. Technically, if you want to play as a glass cannon and chug potions, you can self wield Pride so that no corpses shatter, and a Beast iron golem. I hated it, and did a respec back to the previously mentioned build, but on P8 summon necros aren’t really great for solo clearing the screen like a Javazon. It’s better to e.g. just pop seals & face Diablo, similar to a Berserk Barbarian.

Also all the bubble wrap you need to wear for hc is going to slow you down, high fcr is always great for improving overall speed

Why are you so afraid of dying? Hardcore is hard but not that hard. I don't see any reason why you should use stormshield on a necro with bone armor, max block and shitloads of minions. Necro's biggest weakness is elemental damage, that's why I prefer to stack 20life scs and capped resists instead of damage reduction against melee. Of course, a necro isn't a java or mosaic but summon nec and poison nec are the best way to level this char to lvl99.

My own build isn't anything like this, just throwing out some ideas. Also I only play softcore so I can have a bit more diversity in builds

My nec hasn't come even close to dying even telestomping cows in cow level. I'd say, having cannot be frozen is more interesting than unnecessary melee protection beyond meat shield, max block and bone armor. You need to walk away from your telestomp sometimes, sucks to be frozen.
