How It Works

If you're in search for a Necro build that can do it all, isn't difficult to play, and is visually satisfying; then Bombardier Necro is for you. Whether it's Helltides, Nightmare Dungeons, Uber Bosses, or the Gauntlet; the Bombardier Necro will leave nothing alive behind it's wake of explosive destruction.

Bone Spear is an incredibly powerful Single Target dps skill and a corpse generator using it's ludicrously high base Lucky Hit Chance of 50%.

  • Maximum Essence: All Bone Skill based builds want to max their essence as much as possible to dip into the Key Passive: Ossified Essence. This will drastically increase the damage output of Bone Spear
  • Critical Strike Build: Necromancers have incredibly powerful critical strike damage modifiers in the form of Iron Golem Sacrifice and Aspect of Grasping Veins. Combine this with the paragon board that increases your Critical Strike Chance even further, and hitting 100% Critical Hit Chance becomes easy and allows a necromancer to fully benefit from its critical strike damage modifiers.
  • Vulnerability: With the combination of Splintering Aspect, Plagued Corpse Tendrils, and Breaking Support from construct; everything becomes vulnerable 100% of the time. This is important to dip into not only vulnerable's natural 20%[x] modifier, but also Evulsion's 30%[x] multiplier, Cold Mage Sacrifice 15%[x] multiplier, and Splintering Aspect's 60%[x] multiplier to Bone Spear Shards.
  • Corpse Generation: Bone Spear has a natural Lucky Hit Chance of 50%, combine this with Black River increasing our ranks to Hewed Flesh, and now our Bone Spear can generate a lot of corpses for our Corpse Explosion and Corpse Tendrils.

Corpse Explosion is a corpse consumption skill that when paired with Black River and Ring of the Sacrilegious Soul becomes a nuclear bomb dealing massive damage at half the screen's size and dips into powerful multipliers.

  • Black River + Ring of the Sacrilegious Soul Synergy: Ring of the Sacrilegious Soul allows Necromancers to auto-cast Corpse Explosion once per second, combine this with Black River which allows for 4 additional corpses to be detonated and you get a build that can detonate a Corpse Explosion with 130%[x] more damage and is 100% Bigger Size every second. Further Synergies include:
  1. With Grim Harvest Passive, the above combo also generates 30 essence per second passively to empower our Bone Spear synergizing with the Ossified Essence Key Passive.
  2. Allows instant activation and re-activation of Flesh Eater, giving a powerful 40%[x] multiplier to ALL of our damage. This includes our Corpse Explosion and Bone Spear
