Diablo 4: Necromancer Build – Binds dozens of enemies and can survive anything

Here you will find a powerful build for the Necromancer in Diablo 4 – with full spec, important legendary aspects and recommendations for your equipment.

What build is this? You will find here a Bonespear Build / Bone Spear Build for the Necromancer of Diablo 4, which is completely without skeletons and golem.

I’ve already played through the campaign twice with the Necromancer and tried a lot. After several hours with the skeletons, I have to say: try a build with the “bone spear” as a core skill, the necro can not only summon!

I enhanced my own Bonespear build from the level phase with parts of the Bonespear build from the Maxroll.gg site. For more details, check out the English site (via maxroll.gg).

Noticed: The build is a base that allows you to specialize even further. You can count on it from level 50 and keep adding synergies for the Vulnerability debuff, your bone skills, critical hits and your shadow damage. Here you can find a level guide for the Necro.

Diablo 4: Necromancer – Bone Spear Build

How does the build work? You rely fully on the debuff “Vulnerability” and scale as much as possible with the effect. You draw essence from Corpse Blast and the Bone Shards basic skill.

With your “Bone Spear” together with “Splintering Aspect” you distribute “Vulnerability” to everything in the line of sight and not only increase your damage, but also the damage of the whole group. Here are the key points of the build:

  • Bone Spear and Vulnerability
  • Shadow damage with plague and corpse explosion
  • Enemy control with corpsevines and plague
  • Safe escape with Blood Mist
  • All minions are sacrificed for bonuses
  • “Corpse Tendrils” is probably the strongest control effect of Diablo 4. The legendary “Aspect of the Void” gives you another skill that pulls opponents together: “Pest” acts like a black hole and pulls in all hostiles.

    If your screen is full of enemies, dozens of enemies can be pulled together in a small spot and with “corpse explosion” and plague you spread an uncomfortably large amount of DoT (Damage over Time).

    Always make sure to make your opponents vulnerable with Bone Spear and not to exhaust your essence supply too much – the more essence you have, the stronger you are.

    For the extra charge of survivability, you then have “Blood Mist”. The skill makes you immune to everything, even removes negative effects. But you are a bit slower and need to use the skill judiciously. However, you can survive everything that Diablo 4 throws at you.
