The Poison Necromancer

Enter the Poison Necromancer, sometimes known as Venomancer. This uncommon yet far from ineffective build has an unusual damage-over-time approach to Diablo II. Poison Nova, the build’s main skill, unleashes a screen-wide plague that slowly consumes the Necromancer’s enemies. Struggle as they may, poisoned enemies are then left to lớn wither away by the Necromancer, who is không lấy phí to safely kite back until their inevitable demise, where Corpse Explosion may see use.

Poison Nova is classically combined with the Lower Resist curse khổng lồ further expose enemies khổng lồ its toxic effects và even break poison immunities. Since Poison Necromancers require only 60 points khổng lồ max out their poison-line synergies, they are không tính phí to invest fully into Lower Resist. This curse alone redeems them in party play, where poison damage loses its sting.

As with all poison-centric builds, the Poison Necromancer is a notoriously poor choice for farming bosses due to lớn its middling single-target damage output. Indeed, this build will always be best suited for laying waste khổng lồ large groups of enemies (notably Hell Bovines), owing to lớn its impressive area of effect.

Bone Necromancers are notorious for their versatile magic-type damage, which is virtually never resisted by enemies throughout the game. Unlike many other synergy lines across the game, each of their mainline bone skills — Teeth, Bone Spear, and Bone Spirit — have their use. Teeth giao dịch with hordes of weak enemies such as Fallen. Bone Spear is the most versatile, with its low mana cost and powerful piercing effect. Bone Spirit hits the hardest and can hardly be avoided, but affects only one target. Their curse of choice, if any, is Decrepify, which slows enemies down khổng lồ a crawl.

Bonemancers have no notable weakness bar their relatively poor scaling, albeit only with extremely high-end gear.

The Summoner

Summonmancer, Skellymancer, Fishymancer, or simply, Summon Necro. The most iconic Necromancer build — & arguably, the most iconic build in Diablo II’s entire history — would go on to define what a Necromancer should be in many games released over the two decades since Diablo II’s launch.

In stark contrast lớn this rather illustrious introduction, the Summoner’s playstyle is elegant in its simplicity; summon skeletal minions, curse enemies, explode corpses. The backbone of the build’s classic army is known as Necroskeletons. These resilient melee warriors, raised from the corpses of your enemies, will carry the Summoner from màn chơi 1 through the very end of the game. Amplify Damage is the support curse of choice for its powerful physical resistance reduction effect, which helps both the Necroskeletons and the Necromancer’s own Corpse Explosion skill. Beyond these skills, Summoners are pretty much không lấy phí to bởi as they please. Revive, Necromages, or the Golem of your choice are all valid options và will require little khổng lồ no adaptation on your part.

As for weaknesses, Summon Necros are no different than other summon-centric builds. Act Bosses khuyến mãi 300% more damage to lớn summons, & so, may prove difficult until your gear is good enough.
