A new Beta Build has hit test servers yesterday. You can resurrect in Greater Rift runs instantly and the time is now directly added to the completion timer.
Instant GR Resurrection
On live, every death in Greater Rifts increases your respawn timer by 5 seconds (up to a maximum of 30 seconds). Patch 2.6.0 changes things around a little, and the time is now directly added to your Greater Rift completion time.

New Necromancer Legendary Items
Many new Legendary affixes have been added to the game for Necromancers and you can find them here (again, screenshots have been mady by Oagoz).
Instant resurrection in Greater Rifts, Necromancer Class Sets & more.
