Hello my experienced Necro Friends,

I recently got an Enigma on my Necro and I am running some Chaos and Baal runs... I used to do BAAL without Enigma and I always had max count of Skellys (14), Mages (11) and Revives (16). With Enigma, it seems to me (and I might be completely wrong) that Reviving a ton of monsters is actually worse as they seem to "lock" the mercernary or skellys to attack the monsters. Does that even make sense? Is it worth Reviving with Enigma as you are Teling into champion mob packs or are you better off with Skellys and Merc only?

Thanks in advance <3

This. 90% of your damage is the skeletons/merc

Mages only freeze corpses so you can’t ce and revives do 1/5 of the skeletons damage and take 3 times the space so you do the math

Thanks everyone! Just tested and went much smoother with skellys only (even with no mages). Is there any exception to this though? Like some revives you gotta make like Souls in Baal?

soul's attack will go through minions and still hit you anyway so no points.

Mages are total trash and revives are not necessary unless you're rolling p8 games.

Revives can be nice, but mages are useless
