Sometimes, it’s better to fight fire with fire.

When it comes to defeating the endless minions of Lilith in Diablo 4, those ghoulish abominations will not show pity or remorse upon their actions on humanity, so why should you?

Hence, a Necromancer can become an invaluable ally when fighting to defend Sanctuary from oblivion.

If you’re intrigued about the character class and wish to experiment with it during your first playthrough of Diablo 4 next month, here’s one potential build that you can consider trying out – the Bone Spear + Corpse Explosion fusion!

When you upgrade these skills to higher tiers, they will undoubtedly provide more boosts to effects and damages done.

Now, for attack rotations, Blood Splurge is usually used as the opener, but you can also mix in Corpse Explosion for even more mayhem.

Bone Spear complements your other attacks when trying to focus down specific enemies or Bosses, and you can then try your out your own rotations based on these three (3) skills, besides the other ones as well.

Bear in mind, this build is catered towards World 1: Adventurer and World 2: Veteran, so you will need to change things around for the more difficult World 3: Nightmare and World 4: Hell.

In terms of Gems, these are what are recommended:

Weapon: Emerald
Armour: Ruby
Jewellery: Diamond
