The best Diablo 4 Necromancer builds


The Necromancer, like the Sorcerer, is one of the most formidable classes in the world Diablo 4. Not only is it capable of casting spells or inflicting debilitating debuffs on enemies, it can also summon a small army of skeletons armed to the teeth. This is arguably one of the easiest classes to play effectively, as you largely rely on your skeletons to do your bidding for you.

However, if you’re looking for a more active style of play, you can choose to forego using these minions, and instead use the blood and corpses of your enemies against them in destructive ways. Capable of dealing serious single-target and area-of-effect damage, the Necromancer is extremely versatile. All that’s missing is a clear escape, which you’ll need to keep in mind when creating your own builds.
