So far in the earlier levels it seems as evil monsters resist but that undead monsters are completely immune to nether bolt.

Indeed and the immunity of undead is expected - but you don't meet many in early levels and nothing too tricky. But you do encounter a *lot* of evil monsters, some of them quite tough and almost impossible to despatch if they are resistant to your main ranged attack.

Perhaps this needs a little rebalancing? I don't think it would break anything if evil creatures weren't resistant

I played a necro into level 40 before Glaurung got me out of level.
In the early levels I used bat-form and stealth to find good targets or run from others. You get drain-undead for 0 mana pretty early, that's a great type-specific spell.

Main spell for damage was definitely disenchant bolt, but it is costly. Buying a helm of intelligence, finding a good ring, and judicious use of Restore Mana potions helped. Finding a room with an undead to drain every other round while bolting the living also made me feel pretty bad ass.

I thought i was clever to get a Stealth lantern and drain it before wearing it around. Unluckily one of my best items, a cloak of resist nexus and confusion also had +1 light.

At higher levels, necro was awesome. I killed so many uniques out of level by getting them alone and draining their life.

Ok, I do give you points for cleverness on draining the stealth lamp! Still a bummer to leave all those artifact lights on the floor... but nicely done with a slot I'd figured wouldn't be filled!

Woo hoo, just won with my most recent mage (I think mages are the easiest by a fair margin)! Now I'm starting a half elf necromancer to see what I can make of it... hopefully I can survive long enough to be able to kill some things, eventually... :-)
