Inarius Corpse Explosion Necromancer Speed Farming Variation

General Information

On this page, we explain everything that is specific to the Speed Farming variant of Inarius Corpse Explosion Necromancer. Updated for patch 2.6 and Season 11.

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

1. Normal Rift Speed Farming Variation

The Inarius Corpse Explosion Necromancer can deal reasonably well with Normal Rift farming all the way through the highest Torment difficulties. The build variation suffers from minor inconveniences compared to top tier speed farming builds (needing pet-based Corpse generation to maintain a reasonable farming pace).

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

In the skill selection, you will accomplish that by:

3. Adapting Gear

While Unity Unity will provide adequate and unconditional 50% damage reduction to use during regular farming, you can all but negate incoming damage in regular rifts and gain additional utility and speed through an alternate jewelry combination. Avarice Band Avarice Band is an Act III cache legendary that, in cojunction 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.

Your other ring should be Ring of Royal Grandeur Ring of Royal Grandeur, which in turn allows you to equip Moribund Gauntlets Moribund Gauntlets for an easy source of Corpse generation during Land of the Dead Land of the Dead downtime.

Since you will be barely attacking with Cursed Scythe Cursed Scythe (only done to get a stack of Nayr's Black Death Nayr's Black Death, and certainly not to the extent of getting Decrepify Decrepify on a regular basis), you should make up the toughness loss with a Goldwrap Goldwrap in the place of Dayntee's Binding Dayntee's Binding.

The progression-oriented Ancient Parthan Defenders Ancient Parthan Defenders provide scaling dsmage reduction that will be overkill in regular difficulties; they are best replaced with the extra elites of Nemesis Bracers Nemesis Bracers, feeding into your In-geom In-geom procs.

By wearing an In-geom In-geom over Trag'Oul's Corroded Fang Trag'Oul's Corroded Fang during farming, you will have a significantly higher uptime of both Land of the Dead Land of the Dead and the Blood Golem Blood Golem active component. This freedom of Corpse generation results in much higher damage overall.

4. Adapting Gemming

In speed runs, Elite and Rift Guardian fights are significantly faster and less threatening; thus, the value of gems like Esoteric Alteration Esoteric Alteration diminishes and it is best replaced by Boon of the Hoarder Boon of the Hoarder, part of the gold utility triumvirate outlined above.
