Any tips for Median Xl?

Tried it because I heard it was faster paced, but it's insanly hard. No money early game, massive packs of ''Legendary'' and ''Elite'' enemies whom I'd expect to be rarely spawned but I rarely see anything else.
Constantly assaulted with lightning and poison doing 600+ damage a shot, insta killing my summons and nearly killing me. I'm too early to have any decent resistances. Got to level 17 pretty much by jumping from enemy to enemy with an insanely strong poison attack.
My hireling for some reason has 200+ strenth and dexterity at level 8, yet she dies all the damn time.

It is pretty fun when the enemies aren't one shotting me, my guard and all of my summons though. My first attack made me hit faster than my druid ever did during normal Lod.

Nevermind I think. figured out that certain skills break the game (Like, I have a summon which summons with no upper limit, an area of effect attack and high hp and attack of which the only downside can be dealt with with ease) and used them instead. Melee necro sucked.

^ This is what you need for playing tips.

^ This is all the information you will ever need.

XL is great. The difficulty is not for noobies to the diablo world for sure so don't freak out if it gets really REALLY hard at times. Stick to it and read up. A lot of things have changed in XL from clod. The way you play clod and XL is VERY different. You should read and get as much info as you can before playing if your having trouble.

Melee necros are sick mofos dude. Deathlord, parasite, and embalming is a good start to a melee necro. Parasite is insane: does big damage, two types of damage for immunes, and hits the entire screen with only a couple of points into it. Come back to it later, you'll like it once it gets going. Good luck and welcome to the world of Median XL.

I already beat it as a Necro summoner (The reason I wanted melee necro was to scythe things, and it sucks outside the armor which makes the scythe a sword and makes it slow as hell+has a cooldown so I can't even just activate it at the begining of every encounter, completely ruined it)

Then I realised that you only get decent rewards for beating bosses on the higher difficulties, and to play those you have to first beat it as a character. I don't want to play the higher difficulty as a necro or go through the long-ass confusing maps again just to get to the point where I could start a higher difficulty as another class so I'm probably done.

Couldn't really enjoy many of the fights as melee or summoner though, since it just basically swarms you with enemies repeatedly, making it hard to appreciate any given encounter.

God_of_Magic, what version are you playing? I have XL and I don't see those skills on a necromancer...

^ ....its in the melee/xbow tree. Embalming is in the totem tree. I'm running omega 3 but those skills have been there for a while.

Yah, God linked to the main site (http://modsbylaz.hugelaser.com/) so if you want the newest version, that's where to go.

This is how Diablo works. Why would you expect anything different?
