Does anyone else thing its a bit unusual that Necrotic Ray has a spell resistance check? It's a damage spell, and as a whole damage spells don't have an SR check. Unless I'm missing some counterpoints, I'd like to suggest that the SR check be removed.

I do not know I've never had any mob resist my necrotic ray, I blasted quite a few elite and epic bosses with it too.

You sure you don't mean necrotic blast or necrotic bolt?

Though these also should not have SR for the above reason.

The reason it has a SR check is because it also bestows a single negative level without a save in addition to the negative energy damage.

Still though, I'd call that a secondary benefit, and it certainly isn't what you're trying to do when you want to dps a red name.

That's still the reason. The SR check is there for the level drain.

How about, the damage part ignores SR, and the level drain has an SR check?
