You aren't making any points by reposting what I have already posted. I never claimed these gear sets were the best. They are just examples showing that INT is easy to get via gear you can buy in EC, as I have stated multiple times now. This is why STA is generally the best starting stat for a Necromancer. You seem to think that mana isn't that important, as you are dismissing 700 mana. So I am not sure why you want to suggest INT for starting stats.

A casual Necromancer who is killing guards while leveling can farm a good amount of money and buy whatever they want from these examples, or the Magelos you provided. My Shadowknight farmed tens of thousands of plat by killing guards while leveling, and Necromancers can farm better than SK's. I am not sure what your issue is here.

You can resell the big items easily like the Crimson Robe of Alendine, Djarns Amethyst Ring, Hand of the Reaper, etc. to buy a pre-nerf Circlet of Shadow when you have the item value + plat to do so.

If people want to farm money and get gear with said money, there is no problem with this. That is one of the major draws of the game. Selling items to buy other items you need is a normal part of the game. Not everybody wants to play a Necromancer from 1-60 naked, or with the bare minimum of gear. Some players also twink their characters, and have no problem dropping 100k+ on a new character.

Have you ever played a Necromancer to level 60?

You want to argue for the sake of arguing and you've never even played the class

Just explain to me why anyone would farm a robe of Alendine, Djarn Ring and a Reaper ect ect (50K+ in gear lol) BEFORE getting a CoS

If you read my previous post you would have the answer to this question already. Why do you keep not reading posts and then asking a question that has already been answered?

Who gives a shit about maxing int while leveling a necro anyway? You're charming, which means hp > everything. Just slap on some hp jewelry and some random junk gear and you're good.

Prenerf CoS is great but postnerf CoS is also good and almost free. For instant charm break, goblin gazughi ring is much cheaper and a new player could farm their own one at 20-25ish (before charming becomes good, so a great moment to prep for it).
