Gear Breakdown:
Скрытый текст
Ignore Gems for Now, follow POB
Chest:


Basically Mandatory for Low Life, the gold standard. 4 Red is the minimum for smooth gameplay.

Main Hand:

This is a good budget option. Even better would be a bound fossil crafted Gemini Claw with minion damage, 2% damage Aura mod and crafted minion attack speed.


Need this if you don't have enough mana sustain or mana available.

Off Hand:

The perfect shield for this build, High Resists, some dexterity we need and allows us to reserve all our life with +leveled Gems. +2 Corruption on AoE or Aura gems is tight.

Gloves:

Provides a massive energy shield boost, huge evasion and accuracy boost, increased damage, mana and they are cheap. Budget option is to just not have the corruption.

Boots:

Great all round boots, high ES, Stats, and 30% movespeed. 2 Corruption on AoE or Aura gems is tight.

Helm:

Crazy with this build. Mana reduction is huge and gives +2 to gems. Cannot be Frozen and chill avoidance is really nice as well.

Belt

Basically a Abyss Belt with Aspect of the Spider, High Energy Shield, any missing strength, and covering the rest of your resists.

Amulet:

IMPORTANT: You want to anoint this with the Champion of the Cause Passive, otherwise you will need enlighten LVL4 in your helm.
Cannot be stunned, Insane ES boost, 60% Chaos resist. The Gold Standard for LL.

Ring 1:

5 Link Spectres are nuts. Ignore the setup here, check the POB.

Ring 2:

Lets us reserve a 5 linked herald of purity.

So.. Great guide!
Can you post a pros/cons of this one vs Guardian?
I may have some time to play next weekend, still deciding on wich one to make..
Also.. how viable as a starter?
Thanks!

Currently Unnatural Strength is not working with Dom blow.
Not sure if its a bug or not.

Do you have more information?

Pros: Minions hit a lot harder and are also unkillable.
Cons: A lot less ES regen, you are more reliant on your energy shield recharge when something gets through your defense layers.

I've league started with the build before, you'll probably have to stay life for longer than normal but it is certainly doable. Only item that takes a bit this early in the league is a chayula's blessing.

Yeah annoying right now, note all the videos were done with this bug in play, so it should be even stronger when it's fixed. I did report this bug as soon as I went Necromancer
Hi, love this but it seems like the POB pastebin is broken, maybe the update messed with it?

Looking to run something similar so would love to see your full build

edit: nvm I'm a noob. Carry on haha

With those required uniques it seems not very league start viable, is this false?

Edit: Also in your leveling guide you have chance to bleed on zombies, but I thought that support gem didn't work with them.

Hey there, quick question as im a bit confused what to do here. You have set up gems to be like ring 1 having Herald of Purity and Ring 2 having Raise spectre. but in the build guide you have the hungry loop and circle of guilt, i have both of those but only socket on one of them ( hungry loop ofc ) what do i do exactly?

Hi Paleclaw,

Can you please put the PROS and CONS of Necro vs Guardian? I want to start the league with this but I'm not sure which is which like which has more damage, which has more ES, tankier etc.

Thanks!

Its not the best for a very early league start but its ok. Main expense is Blessing of Chayula early and Shavrones.

You right about chance to bleed, totally forgot when I updated the guide I threw it in, updating it.

Different gear sets, if you have a circle of guilt ring, HoP goes into the hungry loop (Check PoB) and spectres link with blood magic in boots. If not then it goes in a normal unset ring.

Necro: A lot more damage(Especially once +2 skill Fix) and minions are basically immortal. You are less tanky though, more reliant on ES recharge.

Guardian: More ES and regen. Better for party play.

I found playing Necromancer to be more fun overall.
