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.

      Happy four year anniversary since the release of Reaper of Souls! The first and only expansion for Diablo 3, it was preceded by about a month by Patch 2.0, which changed a number of gameplay systems in Diablo 3 like Loot 2.0, Paragon 2.0, Difficulty System Rework. The Reaper of Souls then arrived in Sanctuary as Malthael captured the Black Soulstone, becoming the Aspect of Death. The expansion brought:
      A new class, the stalwart Crusader Level cap raised to 70 New items/powers only for level 61+ characters. Act V - Westmarch, Blood Marsh, and Battlefields of Eternity as some of the main locations Adventure Mode - Bounties, Nephalem Rifts The Mystic - Enchanting and Transmogrification Kadala and Blood Shard Gambling - The greatest evil of them all With that being said, we’re here to remember all the changes that have come to Diablo 3 since release, whether it was the introduction of the Infernal Machine, Brawling, Legendary Gems, or the removal of the Auction House, Invulnerable Minions, or the rework of Crafting Materials, Bounties, or Reflect affix.
      We’ve got 20 Diablo velcro patches to give out. They were given out at BlizzCon 2017 for playing the Diablo demo. To be eligible to win, just post a top-level comment below with your favorite (or least favorite) change that has come to Diablo 3. If you need a refresher on all the changes, check out the condensed patch notes.
      Some additional rules:
      You can only enter once. Your reddit account must be at least one month old by the time of this posting (i.e. created before February 25, 2018). All countries are eligible, although I’ll be shipping from the US, so it may take some to get to some parts of the world. Winners will be chosen randomly. Contest ends on April 1st, 11:59 PM PDT.
