1. 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 and regular Rift farming variations, explained in that order.

4. Role in the Current Meta

This build is ranked as a Mid Tier solo pushing build for its class in the current Season. If you are looking for a strong build that will easily finish the Seasonal Journey, but do not necessarily care for high leaderboard placement, 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.
