Minion master is the reason I didn't quit GW's years ago. First Warrior toon = didn't know about henchies etc. and tried to solo everything (too hard). With minions that all changed. That said, heroes do a better job of managing minions.

Some people you party with might be rude about your minions, just ignore them, unless they offer advice. I had one person tell me to "Stop creating noob minions!" I had no idea what that meant at the time, I didn't have "Noob Minions" on my skillbar

Aura of the Lich is a good elite, if you only have prophecies. Bone horrors and bone fiends are your main minion skills. Bone fiends do better damage, but are ranged attackers, so they won't be a good meat shield. Bone horrors are better for that role. Dark bond (blood magic spell) is also a nice skill, which is often overlooked.

Death nova could add some damage if you care to keep busy with that... you can take taste of death to chose when to make a minion go boom.

The rest would be fillers in the form of some direct damage death magic spells, such as deadly swarm. Or support skills for your team, most likely protection prayer spells such as protective spirit and/or aegis.

Even with the limitation of only having access to prophecies skills, you can still make a decent meatshield that deals some damage. Have fun ^^

A great thing that i dont think everyone that plays a minion necro knows...especially the first that you can bring up your minions in a minion list (believe the default is clicking the 'Y' key). This not only gives you a better sense of your minions current health but also makes minion bombing (Death Nova) a whole whole whole lot easier to apply (minions have a bad habit of not standing still so trying to click on them directly to cast spells that target specific minions of yours can drive one nuts).
