Stats

Strength: Enough to wear gear

Dexterity: None or Gear Req

White gives a massive bonus to damage “ 3 Psn Bone Skill + 2 Bone spear Naturally add another 2 from the wand and you have 7 to Bone spear!”* LivEisJeebus If you take 20 minutes you can shop a +1-3 (depends on luck) Bone spear wand at Normal Drognan (Only 1 of the bases can get 2os). Way more efficient than Blessed spamming. Also, 30 Energy/Vit Jewels are now a possibility and can also roll with an extra mod like @Res/Magic Res/Single Res. So if you're stockpiling blessed orbs you can always start rerolling a 88+ Ilvl Jewel for the possibility. ░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░

Charm Priority: Life / Resistance / Magic Find as Needed

General Thoughts:

This necro focus’s at high output damage at a safe distance with Revived Monsters Clay Golem and Mercenary to keep the enemy at bay. I currently push out 7.1k Damage Bone Spear x4 Projectiles. It is currently untested if more than one bone spear hits bosses due to general size however I recommend it highly due to clearability.

░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░

Current Focus:

After hitting a high enough level focus Max Resistance Implements / Magic Resistance

Tip Saintly Plates “White Item“ Generally give Magic Resistance Passively a great armor base.

While Rolling White Wand Use Blessed Crystal + Chipped Gem on a regular wand to reroll its properties to achieve +2 Bone Spear Naturally with 2 Sockets.

LivEisJeebus:

If you take 20 minutes you can shop a +1-3 (depends on luck) Bone spear wand at Normal Drognan (Only 1 of the bases can get 2os). Way more efficient than Blessed spamming.

I highly suggest doing a few Regal Crafting Prismatic amulets in a Sapphire/Ruby/Jade/Topaz bases, i find it fairly easy to get double roll @res rolls with it and maybe you'll get lucky with a +1-3 Pnb or +1-2 Nec one.

Rare Glyphs for block chance give about 7% and take up a tertiary slot (takes up MF Slot) and you get around 5 Tertiary slots on charms. So you can potentially get 35% extra block chance just from the charms and then get a high block shield (Dol'd Whitstan's or Up'd Dol'd Mosers or Dol'd Homunc Etc) and not have to sacrifice barely any points to hit 75%

For armor, if you're going the smoke route for @res i'd be on the lookout for Ancient's Protector. It's not too uncommon so you can probably get one for free and has High Life + Defense for extra tankiness (It also has a jewel slot open for w/e you need in your build).


sirlanceb:

Instead of maxing Hex, just max fire golem and then put the rest of your points into minion damage.

You will do more damage because fire golem does absurd damage. The bone spear will insta clear pretty much all trash, also this is your way to deal with magic immunes.

20 Teeth 20 Spear 20 Spirit 20 Fire Golem point into decrept cause it's op and general prereqs rest into minion damage

You could also run a weapon switch with the +5 nec wand and sun of Esu to switch to to cast your fire golem so he is more beefy. The life of the fire golem is based on what difficulty you are in. So he'll have enough life in hell to survive long enough and with 900 mana, you can just cast one out again since your base regen will be so high.

Also if you get the +3 golem armor. There's pretty much no reason not to do it. You'll do bone spear to clear trash , large packs of monsters are what hurts 4 fire golems because they are AI and don't target the best. But once you clear trash, single target wise your fire golems will absolutely mop shit up.

Also just make a beefy act 2 or 5 merc. With decrept , he'll be fine.
