Necromancer Leveling Guide


This Necromancer leveling build decimates his foes by showering them in Bone Novas. Thanks to Bone Hail in the Summon Bone Golem Skill Tree, we can proc Bone Nova every time we cast Rip Blood on him. We also use Dread Shade to boost Bone Nova damage even further.

The Necromancer plays at range and let his minions take hits for him. In this build we take advantage of Summon Bone Golem's massive Health and Threat to tank potential danger. Rip Blood and Summon Volatile Zombie provide your recovery.

Overall, the Bone Nova Necromancer is an amazing leveling build, as it provides both insane damage and recovery. It also scales really well into the end-game with powerful item bases and passive tree points. This combination makes Necromancer leveling look easy.
