But in reality right now I must open the door first, where orcs already waiting for me and as soon as I open the door I get hit in my face, and my army meanwhile wandering behind me doing no good. No wonder why playing as necromancer is almost no fun at all.

And also, it seems that summons are unable to walk on ladders and follow me on the next level.. :face_palm:
So you set them on "stay close" so they stand right next to you, open the door, then switch it to "seek and destroy" and step back. You can change these pet AI options instantly, so don't be afraid of messing with them in the middle of a fight to get the results you want.

and if there's any monster that is waiting for me I got hit right away, and if I am lucky enough I will have a change to step back.. I know all these options.

No, no, no, that's no fun at all. I would rather tell them to go in that direction, open a door and destroy every monster, so I, the master of dead, could enter the room and take trophies. YES! Existing pet menu commands do not allow me to achieve this, and I know a lot of players would like to be able to do the same I am trying to explain here.

Wand of stone-to-mud is a useful thing to carry. Then you can stay behind your pets and make a passageway wherever one is needed. Higher level necromancers can even summon allies that pass through walls.

Necromancer is that class that got me hooked on poschengband. It requires very different tactics from a more traditional band class. A little patience and a little creativity are needed :-)
