General Information

Welcome to our build guide for LoN Thorns Skeletons Solo 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 2.6.5 and Season 17.

1. Introduction

Focusing on the combination of Legacy of Nightmares set's adaptability, underlying Thorns synergy and the natural summoner capabilities of the class, the LoN Skeleton and Golem Necromancer offers a quirky solo pushing variant to the class. This methodical and mechanically simple playstyle is meant strictly for solo GR pushing.
