Necromancer Set Appearances & Bonuses

Recommended Posts


Necromancers have - as of the latest beta build - four different sets. In this preview, we're looking at their appearance and set bonuses. 

Bones of Rathma (Bone / Pet)

  • 2P - Your pets have a chance to reduce the cooldown of Army of the Dead by 1 sec each time they deal damage.
  • 4P - You gain 1% damage reduction each time your pets deal damage. Max 50 stacks.
  • 6P - Each active Skeleton Mage increases the damage of your minions and Army of the Dead by 200%.


Grace of Inarius (Saint)

  • 2P - Bone Armor's damage is increased by 1,000%.
  • 4P - Bone Armor grants an additional 2% damage reduction per enemy hit.
  • 6P - Bone Armor also activates a swirling tornado of bone, damaging nearby enemies for 375% weapon damage and increasing the damage they take from the Necromancer by 850%.


Pestilence Master’s Shroud (Melee)

  • 2P - Each corpse you consume fires a Corpse Lance at a nearby enemy.
  • 4P - Each enemy you hit with Bone Spear reduces your damage taken by 2%, up to a maximum of 50%. Lasts 15 seconds.
  • 6P - Each corpse you consume grants you an Empowered Bone Spear charge that increases the damage of your next Bone Spear by 1,000%.


Trag’Oul’s Avatar (Blood)

  • 2P - Blood Rush gains the effect of every rune.
  • 4P - While at full Life, your healing from skills is added to your maximum Life for 45 seconds, up to 100% more.
  • 6P - Spending 10% Life grants you a stack of Blood Cascade. Each stack of Blood Cascade increases the damage of Life-spending attacks by 200%, but also increases the Life you lose by 10%. Using a skill to heal will consume a stack and heal for 300% more.

IMO the Bones of Rathma is the best looking one and has the best class themed bonus of the 4 as well as having the potential for being the best damage/Survival abilities. Trang" Ouls Avatar is a nice second in terms of apearance but the bonus not so much, but the name is a great omage to the original set of the same name from Diablo 2 wich my lvl 99 Necro still wears to this day :D tho that one transformed you into a vampire with extra powerful abilities and allowed you to glide wich this one does not sadly.

EDIT: After having tried the class out in the Beta for awhile and played with 2 of the sets so far I can say I may be very mistaken as to the top set, The Grace of Inarius so far is flattening all oposition, it is super powerful and with the right skills and defenses in place makes you almost unkillable, I would compare it easily to the Crusaders Thorns of the Invoker set in that it provides you with suitable protection while dishing out a crap ton of damage, with the added benefit of boosting your pets as well if this doesn't get nerfed to hell before going live I can easily see this crushing very high Greater Rifts no sweat.

      Some good news today, as the promised extra buff has arrived to Season 21 and we're getting double Horadric Caches! Each time you complete a bounty you'll be getting 2 chests, both affected by the difficulty you're playing at. This will not affect the Challenge Rift cache. The event starts in under an hour, at 8PM CEST, 11AM PDT.

      We also found out that future PTR test cycles will be longer, with an extra week of actual PTR testing when a new season comes.
      Double Bounties (source)
      Hello everyone –
      The trials this season brings upon a new event for the community. Starting from 11am PT today and through the end of Season 21, all bounties will be doubled. What does this exactly entail? All Horadric Caches earned from bounties will be doubled. This means that each time you complete bounties in an Act, you will now receive two Horadric Caches as opposed to just one. Double the bounty rewards!
      There are a few things to keep in mind with this effect:
      The bonus cache does benefit from difficulty level; it is essentially as though you completed twice the bounties. The rewards inside the Horadric Caches are otherwise unaffected; drop rates or the amount of individual rewards have not been altered. The bonus cache earned from Challenge Rifts is not affected; this is a separate type of cache.
      Check out our Game Guide for a list of bounty-exclusive Legendary items and more information on the Bounty system.
      On top of this, we would like to note that we plan on extending PTR testing timelines prior to each new season going forward. This will result in a slightly extended season, and will allow for 2 weeks of PTR testing for the community along with an additional week for the team to implement and work feedback/changes in before the season begins. The intention here is to make sure we can apply as much feedback as possible from the community during these PTR timelines while also giving us a good amount of time to test these changes before they go live.
      Thanks again. Happy slaying!

      After the recent Demon Hunter 150 clears, it's time for the second class to break that barrier in Season 21, as we now have a Barbarian max rift clear! Redditor Nexrate has done it, and done it twice it seems, as his first 150 clear was lost to some bugs on the leaderboards, but the second one remained.The build is a modified Rend Wrath of the Wastes, with Zei's instead of Stricken, using the seasonal power to clear everything up, with the big challenge being getting that snowball at the end (and aiming it properly) to finish off the boss in time, with the Coundiut before the boss spawned helping out a bit as well.
      As for the other classes, the closest is a GR 143 Necromancer, followed by a 142 Necro and Witch Doctor.

      After Wudijo's recent Rank 1 and World 2nd GR 150 clear, beating his World First clan-mate by almost 5 minutes, he's made a video detailing his journey to the top. We find out some truly impressive stuff: his refusal to simply grind paragon levels to make the task easier, the fact he plays along side a full-time job and had to sacrifice a lot of sleep, we get to hear about the many near-misses and how he had to learn to perfectly play around the seasonal theme, the fact it took him twice as many keys as he thought it would (5.5K), the fact he used 60 keys an hour, the fact he used as many keys as last season, when he was pushing on 6 classes and a lot more!

      Wudijo scored the world's fastest Solo Greater Rift 150 in time in Season 21 with his Demon Hunter after 5,500 used keys and weeks of attempts. Congrats!
      UPDATE: This is currently the world's second clear of Solo GR150, not world first as we thought, we apologize for the confusion!
      Placeholder for tweet 1289929742800449540   The player completed the rift and killed the Infernal Maiden with 1 minute and 4 seconds remaining on the timer.

      Here are the final moments of the run!

      It's time for some more weirdness as Wudijo is trying some crazy stuff! So how can someone get from level 1 to 70 in 5 seconds you might ask? Well it's easy! You just need 8 hours of torment 16 bounty farming, 1 crash where you almost lose 341 bounty caches on the ground, Custerian Wristguards and Avarice Band! But after that it's only 5 seconds of picking up all the gold and getting a whole lot of XP through the bracers! Enjoy:
