Diablo 4 is the latest installment in the Diablo series created by Blizzard and was released on June 5, 2023. There are 5 classes available for players to choose from, each with its own unique characteristics.
Today, I will introduce the Summoner Necromancer Build in this article. Necromancer is my favorite class in Diablo 4. I'll show you how to get a powerful Necromancer in the game.
Summoner Necromancer Build: Introduction
Necromancer is one of the available classes in Diablo 4 and appeared in the previous series. You can summon many undead minions and golems to fight for you, which is pretty cool. Unlike other classes, you do not have to take part in the battle in person. You primarily rely on your minions to deal damage and protect you, and you just need to use skills to deal damage away from the battlefield.
However, Necromancer has low defensive abilities. You will easily die if you can't handle the battle properly, especially against a powerful boss in the game. Your summoners are the key to success.
The Summoner Necromancer build resurrects enemies and uses them against your enemies, which sounds amusing. This builds focus on your summoners' damage and survival, as you need them to defeat your enemies and keep you safe.
Summoner Necromancer Build: Skills
For active skills, I recommend Reap, Sever, Raise Skeleton, Corpse Explosion, Golem, and Army of the Dead.
Reap and Sever for damage, giving you some essence and damage reduction.
Corpse Explosion is a powerful skill that allows you to explode corpses and deal large amounts of damage to enemies.
Army of the Dead, you can feel its power just from its name. This skill can summon dead and explode by the side of enemies and deal more damage.
Raise Skeleton can summon a skeleton. It will summon a Skeletal Priest if you summoned all your skeletons, who heal your army and increase their damage, then disappear.
Golem has stronger health and defense and can survive longer on the battlefield. I suggest you get Golem Mastery to enhance them.
For passive skills, I recommend Hellbent Commander, Grim Harvest, Inspiring Leader, Death's Defense, and Fueled by Death.
Use Hellbent Commander with Inspiring Leader together to increase your summoners' damage and attack speed.
Grim Harvest should be used in combination with Fueled by Death. It provides damage and gives you some essence when you consume a corpse.
Death's Defense protects your summoners from losing too much health when they get attacked.
Summoner Necromancer Build: Aspects
Aspects are used to upgrade your equipment, which is a special reward in the game. You can obtain Aspects by completing Dungeons or extracting them from legendary items, but doing so will result in the destruction of these items.
For the Aspects, I recommend the following four:
Aspect of Disobedience:
You can obtain it from the Halls of the Damned Dungeon. It increases your armor by 4 seconds when you take any damage.
A legendary drop is not easily obtained. It will create a bubble around you when you are attacked while you are unwell. It could be used as an emergency escape.
Blood Getter's Aspect:
Provide you with two more skeletal warriors so you can expand your army. It is also a legendary drop.
Unyielding Commander's Aspect:
You can obtain it from the Faceless Shrine Dungeon. It increases your summons attack speed and reduces 90% damage while the Army of the Dead is active. So it requires the skill I previously mentioned.
Summoner Necromancer Build: Gems
Gems can be used on armor, weapons, and jewelry to get different upgrades, and different types of gems have different effects. You can find gems on chests or ores and they are also can be crafted.
For this build, I recommend using Amethyst, Diamond, and Ruby. You can use Amethyst on weapons to increase damage over time, Diamond on jewelry to increase resistance to all elements, and Ruby on armor to gain more health.
This is the Summoner Necromancer build I recommended. To complete it, you need to spend some time gathering the necessary Diablo 4 Items, and trying to get some Diablo 4 Gold is also helpful. Collecting these items is also a part of enjoying the game.
This is all I wanted to show you. I hope this article is helpful to you. Thank you for reading.
