How to Play the Build: Skills and Rotation

The starter Inarius set build is almost identical to a higher tier Corpsemancer build, using the close range synergy of the Inarius set and Corpse Explosion Corpse Explosion Close Quarters Close Quarters. This high damage, Corpse-consuming skill will be boosted by Grasps of Essence Grasps of Essence and fed by Golemskin Breeches Golemskin Breeches, both of which are very important and easy early gambles for the build. (Naturally, to make use of both items you will need to cube the weaker one and wear the other, replacing a piece of the Inarius set while completing its bonus via the Act I cache legendary Ring of Royal Grandeur Ring of Royal Grandeur.) As usual, Bone Armor Bone Armor needs to make its way into an Inarius set build, as the radius of its swirling bone tornado will dictate the area where your damage and defenses will be heightened. Use the Dislocation Dislocation rune to gain an extra proc for another cornerstone Necromancer item, Krysbin's Sentence Krysbin's Sentence.

Mobility is an aspect of any farming build that cannot be ignored, and you will do well to include the solitary Necromancer movement skill — Blood Rush Blood Rush — along with the Corpse-generating Molting Molting rune to supplement your Corpse-consuming main source of damage.

Bolstering your Corpse generation needs, you will be taking Command Golem Command Golem for the active component of the Flesh Golem Flesh Golem rune, providing you with an instantaneous source of burst damage via the 8 generated corpses. Offsetting its tremendous power with a massive cooldown, you will also be including Land of the Dead Land of the Dead Frozen Lands Frozen Lands for unhindered Corpse Explosion Corpse Explosion spam. This signature Necromancer skill dictates the inclusion of an In-geom In-geom as early as you can to improve its uptime.

Curses are an important aspect of the class, and you can reinforce your early farming potential with the staple Frailty Frailty Aura of Frailty Aura of Frailty. You can easily attach a defensive aspect to this offensive curse by equipping the common Dayntee's Binding Dayntee's Binding belt.

You will maintain some of your leveling passives, particularly the extra movement speed of Fueled by Death Fueled by Death and the cursed enemy bonuses of Spreading Malediction Spreading Malediction. Finish up your passive roster with the substantial toughness boost of Stand Alone Stand Alone (since it is a near pet-less build) and Commander of the Risen Dead Commander of the Risen Dead to have the Command Golem Command Golem active component up more often.
