General Information

Welcome to our build guide for Inarius Corpse Explosion Necromancer in Diablo 3. Here, you will learn everything you need to know to play this build at the highest level. This build is updated for patch 2.6 and Season 11.

1. Introduction

Ripping the skeletal structure from his very foes to encase himself in a protective vortex of sharpened bone, the Inarius Necromancer turns to close combat spellcasting to resolve conflicts. Using the bodies the dead as a virulent tool to obliterate the living, the Corpse Exlosion Necromancer build emerges in both Greater Rift solo progression and regular Rift farming variations, explained in that order.

4. Role in the Current Meta

This build is ranked as a High Tier solo pushing build for its class in the current Season. If high leaderboard position without strict adherence to the meta is attractive to you, consider using this build.

This build is oriented mostly at solo Rifting (Greater and Normal). Due to its mediocre mobility on long distances, it is not recommended for Bounties. It is also not recommended for group Greater Rifts past the point where every party member can handle the content on his own.
