Build Details

How It Works
Summary

This is an insanely tanky Necromancer Build that's able to clear Nightmare Dungeons Tier 100 dungeons with ease.

This setup is designed to get as much value out of both X'Fal's and Shadowblight as possible by applying loads of DOTs to all enemies. Between Bone Storm, Corpse Explosion, and Lidless Wall you will have an incredible amount of procs. With all of these sources this build ends up doing quite a bit of damage, especially against many enemies. While this builds damage is lacking compared to Black River Corpse Explosion, particularly in single target. That being said, this version is fair tankier, and is very fun to play.

In-Depth Explanation

Bone Storm

A huge amount of our tankiness is coming from the Aspect of Shielding Storm and the Aspect of Ultimate Shadow. This combination allows for huge damage from Shadowblight while also generating massive amounts of shielding. The shield generation from this setup is absurd, allowing you to easily tank nightmare 100 dungeons.

Gameplay Loop
  1. Always keep up Decrepify on all enemies
  2. Engage with Bone Storm and then Blood Mist
  3. Use Reap as soon as Blood Mist ends
  4. Use Blood Mist on cooldown
