Introduction

One of the more unique takes on Inarius set gameplay, the Grim Scythe Generator Necromancer trades the mixed appeal of long cooldown builds for proactive, resource-intensive interplay. This melee range, fast attack speed playstyle is available in both Greater Rift solo progression (the present guide) and speed farming variations (see link below).

2.2.1.

Angelic Crucible Sanctification

Season 27 comes with the theme of Angelic Crucibles — consumable items that empower Legendary items with perfected Ancient-level stats, as well as infuse them with one of three unique, powerful, class-specific abilities at random.

Unfortunately, Necro Generator-based builds do not have a great way of utilizing the three Sanctification powers. Thus, you should simply use Angelic Crucibles on an item that crosses over most (if not all) variants of a build, and is also an item that is relatively harder to perfect than other slots (since sanctifying an item maximizes its stats). The Sanctification power outcome does not matter. In the case of this build, a good candidate for Sanctification are your weapon, Trag'Oul's Corroded Fang Trag'Oul's Corroded Fang, or a jewelry piece like Krysbin's Sentence Krysbin's Sentence.

You can read more on Angelic Crucibles and the sanctification process in our dedicated Angelic Crucible Mechanics guide.
