Inarius Bone Storm Necromancer Speed Farming Variation

Last updated on Oct 27, 2017 at 15:23 by Deadset

Table of Contents

General Information

On this page, we explain everything that is specific to the Speed Farming variant of Inarius Bone Storm Necromancer. Updated for patch 2.6.1 and Season 12.

The other pages of our Inarius Bone Storm Necromancer guide can be accessed from the table of contents on the right.

1. Normal Rift Speed Farming Variation

The Inarius Bone Storm Necromancer deals excellently with Normal Rift farming all the way through the highest Torment difficulties. With the appropriate gear modifications outlined below, it should also prove as a reliable and capable bounty farming build.

Within the limited scope of regular difficulties, the necessary damage and toughness to triumph over the enemy is significantly smaller. Thus, your best course of action is to improve utility and speed.

2. Adapting Skills

Active Skills

Passive Skills

In the skill selection, you will accomplish that by:

  • Making a mental note to spam Bone Armor Bone Armor on enemy packs during In-geom In-geom uptime. The In-geom In-geom proc will effectively nullify that cooldown, allowing you an easy proc of Krysbin's Sentence Krysbin's Sentence on every pack with a Dislocation Dislocation cast.
  • Swapping the defensive Potency Potency rune of Blood Rush Blood Rush for the double charges of Metabolism Metabolism.
  • Swapping the defensive Decrepify Decrepify curse for the automated, offense staple Frailty Frailty Aura of Frailty Aura of Frailty. Note the extension of the aura radius through your gold pickup radius — an important factor that you will influence through gearing (see below).
  • Changing the defensive Frozen Lands Frozen Lands rune on Land of the Dead Land of the Dead with the longer lasting Shallow Graves Shallow Graves rune.
  • In the passives, replacing the progression-oriented Blood is Power Blood is Power CDR for the speed utility of Fueled by Death Fueled by Death.

3. Adapting Gear

The balancing act of the Endless Walk set greatly diminishes in usefulness during Normal Rift farming. When doing farming content, the recommended jewelry split is to retain Krysbin's Sentence Krysbin's Sentence (for the consistent damage increase) and an Avarice Band Avarice Band. Avarice Band Avarice Band is an Act III cache legendary that, in conjunction with a gemmed Boon of the Hoarder Boon of the Hoarder and a worn Goldwrap Goldwrap, will render you practically invulnerable during Normal Rift farming. Note that it also extends your pickup radius up to the whopping 30 yards as you pick up gold, enabling a near screen-wide effect to Aura of Frailty Aura of Frailty.

Ideally you will finish off the farming jewelry with a nicely rolled Wisdom of Kalan Wisdom of Kalan. This enables you to store Ring of Royal Grandeur Ring of Royal Grandeur in the jewelry Cube slot, and to drop an Inarius set piece for a speed farming-appropriate legendary. An example of that would be to drop Inarius's Perseverance Inarius's Perseverance for the movement speed increase of Steuart's Greaves Steuart's Greaves.

Since you will be dropping Decrepify Decrepify in favor of maximizing offense and utility, you should make up the toughness loss with a Goldwrap Goldwrap in the place of Dayntee's Binding Dayntee's Binding.

Finish off the farming staple items by dropping Ancient Parthan Defenders Ancient Parthan Defenders' damage reduction for the extra elites of Nemesis Bracers Nemesis Bracers, feeding nicely into your cubed In-geom In-geom.

4. Adapting Gemming

In speed runs, sheer number of attacks required to take down enemies is much smaller, allowing you to cut out Pain Enhancer Pain Enhancer in favor of Boon of the Hoarder Boon of the Hoarder — part of the gold utility triumvirate outlined above.

5. Adapting Kanai's Cube

As previously mentioned, it is recommended that you swap out Trag'Oul's Corroded Fang Trag'Oul's Corroded Fang from the Weapon slot in Kanai's Cube; its damage multiplication is welcome if you need it, but it ends up being a slower option to simply cubing In-geom In-geom. This speed farming staple cuts cooldowns by 10 seconds flat for a generous 15 second period after killing an elite, ensuring very high uptime on vital cooldowns and resulting in higher damage overall.

Depending on your confidence in your own toughness, you can also drop Aquila Cuirass Aquila Cuirass for the extra movement speed of Warzechian Armguards Warzechian Armguards, who proc consistently off the environment destruction caused by the bone tornado.

In case you follow our recommendation to wear Steuart's Greaves Steuart's Greaves during speed farming for the added maneuverability, you will need to take Ring of Royal Grandeur Ring of Royal Grandeur in the jewelry Cube slot.
