Necromancer Poison Nova Trash Killer Build With LoD

Last updated on Mar 10, 2020 at 09:00 by Deadset 13 comments

Welcome to our build guide for LoD Poison Nova Trash Killer 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 2.6.8 and Season 20.

For more information regarding followers, we advise you to read our follower guide, which contains detailed advice on choosing the skills and the gear of your companion.



Emerging from a combination of the Season 20 buff (allowing you to slot any item in any Kanai's slot), the adaptability of the Legacy of Dreams bonus, and the plethora of Poison-themed skills at the Necromancer's disposal, this one-Season-only opportunity emerges as the strongest build in the game, albeit for a limited time. This strictly group oriented, pure AoE damage only plays a part of a composition with a single-target, Rift Guardian Killer (RGK) party member and supports.
