I was on the Beta and made a corpse explosion/land of the dead LoN set, but is needs refinement...  I had 39.5% crit rate and 188% crit damage and was able to do t12, All legendary gems were at 73.  I think it has potential, I just didn't have enough play time to increase my crit to something more in line with most of the other big builds.

Left click - Bone Spikes (Sudden Impact)   Right click - Land Of The Dead (Shallow Graves)

1 - Corpse Explosion (Bloody Mess)    2 - Blood Rush (Molting)

3 - Decrepify (Borrowed Time)    4 - Command Skeletons (Dark Mending)

Passives - Overwhelming Essence, Fueled By Death, Final Service, Rathma's Shield

Items...

Head - Leoric's Crown (Diamond)

Rings - Litany of the Undaunted (Bane of the Stricken)/Wailing Host (Bane of the Trapped)

Neck - The Johnstone (Esoteric Alteration)

Wrists - Nemesis Bracers

Chest - Bloodsong Mail

Shoulders - Spaulders of Zakara (no good options from the necro specific items)

Hands - Grasp of Essence

Waist - Dayntee's Binding

Legs - ... (again, no good options.  I just used Blackthorne's since I had an ancient)

Feet - Stueart's Greaves

Weapon - Reilana's Shadowhook

Cube - The Furnace, Aquila Cuirass, Countess Julia's Cameo

If we go with more mobility through the blood rush skill instead of decrepify, is it still worth using Dayntee's belt? I know we will still activate decrepify through cursed scythe, but is it reliable enough to still warrant the belt? or is there a better belt to use (say, a witching hour)? Thanks!

I think I like to old Page Format here better.  This one gets confusing when looking thru the Legendary salvage page and trying to link.

My question is also about the belt, I didn't notice we don't use to Decrepify until I looked over the build again. Even if it comes from a "passive" ability, is it still that good? Or is there a better option?

About that belt ... Yes its THAT good . The scythe is aor so in large mob densaty areas u are bound to curse atleast one mob with Decrepify. Also it gives u alot of sustain againt rift guardians because after a few hits u have garanteed Decrapify on him + there is no real other option at the moment. u can go with ghostlyhour or something like that... maybe..perhaps ... didnt try this tho

My wife and I play together on the PS4.  I'm curious if there's another ring besides the Unity, since I won't have a Follower.

You can try Convention of Elements for even more damage, or a Lornelle's Sunstone for toughness (since it doesn't rely on followers).

Hello . I see in the description of the Corpse explosion build , it is Mid Tier . So what exactly does this mean ? Not viable past GR50 or so ?

Generally, mid tier builds can reach GR75 without issues, and can get to ~GR90. If you want to get to GR100+, I would highly suggest using a High or Top tier build.

Hey Mr. Set!

Some of the terms you folks use are not the actual terms on the Gear.  For example, you say " All Resistance" and the gear says "Resist All Elements."  "Cooldown Reduction" is actually "Reduces Cooldown of All Skils by %."  Those are fairly obvious and I know this is picking nits, but on some stats it gets confusing sometimes.

I just wanna make sure I'm doing this correctly.  What stats do these Orange Highlighted stats relate to on the actual gear?

  1. High Damage Range
  2. Intelligence
  3. Socket (preferably from Ramaladni's Gift Ramaladni's Gift)
  4. % Weapon Damage
  5. Cooldown Reduction

 

Also, on the PS4, I noticed that on some gear, like Scarbringer Scarbringer and Vengeful Wind Vengeful Wind ,that  none of the stats will roll "Life per Hit."  So, if it's not already on the Weapon, you can't reroll any other stats to get it.

Hey, my guess is that High Damage Range is the raw damage (displayed below DPS), and % Weapon damage is + % Damage.

Thnx.  Sounds right.

There are others too:

Dead says "Life Regeneration" i I assume that's "Life Per Second?"

Thanx.  Sorry for the delay.

"Sounds right."  But is there a way to be sure?  I would think these terms are Important for the builds.

I think there are more.  I usually just check-out these great Builds when I'm starting a Character and rarely go back to them, unless there's a Patch, of course - so I don't peruse these Stats that often.  I'll give them the once-over and get back to you.

Sorry it took me so long to reply. I just got a reply from Deadset confirming that you got the stats right. If you find any other that you are unsure about, feel free to ask!

Okeeee... Just wanted to make sure:  "Life Regeneration" is "Life Per Second," right?  So, in the Build Stats, why not call it Life Per Second?  Or is Life Per Hit also Life Regeneration(?) - because I rarely see Life Per Hit as something you can Gamble for.

Are you asking for this build specifically? Because there is no Life per hit or Life per second in the guide for the gear.

The only Life Regeneration there is in the guide is for paragon points and there is pretty much no option there, just throw all the points in there, usually the last thing you do on that page.

I'm talking about DeadSet's recommendations for Stats on the actual Gear for the Builds, not Paragon.  Maybe I'm wrong, but it looks like DeadSet uses those terms for all the builds, doesn't he?

For example:

Torso
  1. Dexterity
  2. 3 Sockets
  3. Vitality
  4. Life Regeneration
  5. Reduced damage from Elites
  6. Single Elemental Resistance (Physical prefered)

https://www.icy-veins.com/d3/uliana-seven-sided-strike-monk-bis-gear-gems-paragon-points

So, which Stat/Stats are "Life Regeneration?  If it's only "Life Per Second," why not just call it "Life Per Second?"  If it includes other Stats like "Life %" or "Life Per Hit," maybe we need a Primer.

 

And another question.  On the "LoN LTK Monk Lashing Tail Kick Sunwuko Variation Variation," the Scarbringer has a Stat Variable of "Life Per Hit."  From what I've noticed, you can't gamble for this Stat - it's either already on the Gear or it's tough noodles.  Now maybe this is because it's a "Variation Variation," which sorta becomes a Double Negative, or maybe even a Negative Double Negative...

Also, interestingly there is no LoN on this "Variation Variation," even though it's called LoN.

Weapon #1
  1. High Damage Range
  2. Dexterity
  3. Socket (preferably from Ramaladni's Gift Ramaladni's Gift)
  4. Resource Cost Reduction
  5. Life per Hit
  6. Area Damage

Right, first off you're typing this in the Corpse explosion build forum which doesn't have anything to do with what you are talking about so that is why I was asking if this was in general or not. This should be in the general forum and not for a specific build that has no relevance to the question.

Yes, "Life regen" on gear is "Life per second" since %hp is raw health in your total hp pool and Life per hit is not a regen, it is something you have to manually "activate" by using abilities and attack. It could also be a matter of preference that whatever you are lacking could be put in that slot. If all other gear pieces for you are missing example the %hp, that is possible a better choice in this instance, sometimes you have to look at what your individual need is based on the stats you are lacking and not blindly go after a guide.

Weapons should be able to roll Life on Hit from what I can see on everything in my stash. Only thing I can imagin is if there isa  relation to the secondary stat like with resists. Example, you can't roll Primary all resist stat if there is a secondary stat that is resistance to something. Thinking if it's possible that second stat for weapon regarding "Life" could be asimilar but I can't confirm that without having the weapon itself to test with.

The main build is called LoN and it means that it's a viable variation of the LoN build but the name of the build isn't changing.
Variations only show an alternative way of playing it but it's based on the same principals as the original so it's more of a title of what it is a variation of.

Actually it does... You may not have noticed, but my subsequent posts were a continuation of earlier posts with a very similar question.

I'm playing these builds on the Console lately and "Life PER Hit" is not always a variable Roll on any of the Stats that I can change.  As I've said, I've researched this on the Scarbringer.

Then why not call it "Life Per Second" rather than "Life Regeneration?"

      Season 15 is now live, but players are not receiving two Horadric Caches from bounties as intended. Blizzard yesterday acknowledged they've pushed out a hotfix to fix the issue for PC. Console players, however, will need to wait a bit longer before the fix is deployed to PS4 and Xbox.
      Season 15 started on Friday and the second Themed Season titled "Boon of the Horadrim" doubles the amount of Horadric Caches from Bounties.
      Check out our Season 15 Compendium for more details!
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hey all, quick heads up: we're aware of this issue, and working on a hotfix which we're aiming to push out as soon as possible (aiming to push live within the next hour, though this may shift).
      Sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks for your patience in the meantime!

      If you're playing in Season 15, this is the place to find the best builds!
      The 15th Season of Diablo continues the seasonal thematic concept, bringing the Boon of the Horadrim this time around. For the duration of Season 15, all Horadric Caches earned from bounties will be doubled. We've put together the best builds for each class to make it easier for you to choose what to play.
      Greetings, fellow denizens of Sanctuary! The 15th Season of Diablo continues the seasonal thematic concept, bringing the Boon of the Horadrim this time around. For the duration of Season 15, all Horadric Caches earned from bounties will be doubled. This is a potent bonus, bringing gear perfection through reforging much faster and earlier this time around. It also places a big emphasis on polishing your bounty farming build.

      Why is Patch 2.6.1 a Great Time to Come Back?
      Patch 2.6.1 sees one of the biggest rebalancing efforts to the game since Patch 2.4, the strongest content Patch of the Reaper of Souls cycle. It builds on every good foundation set by it (class diversity, options for underused skills, the introduction of mechanically interesting items) and skyrockets it to post-2.6 damage standards. If you have ever craved a patch where multiple builds are considered top tier GR pushers and practically dozens of combinations are completely capable endgame farmers, this is the one.
      Basics Guides and Conquest Guides
      Before moving on to class impressions and recommendations, I just want to give a quick pointer to the new basics and conquest guides that I compiled recently. If you are new to the game, returning after a long break, or simply have friends that you want to get into Diablo, give those a read:
      Beginner Seasonal Guide - an introduction to Seasons, efficient leveling, crafting and gearing; Bounty Farming Guide - how, when, which bounties to do and the builds to do them with; Regular "Nephalem" Rift Farming Guide - quantity, quality, and methods for Torment rifting; Greater Rift Farming Guide - rewards, competition and strategic considerations for GRs; Conquest Guides for Season 15 - the fast track to the Seasonal Journey completion. As a guide hub, Icy Veins receives a ton of messages on a regular basis for topics like these - I hope they are of use to the community and answer a lot of questions for Seasons to come!
      Barbarians
      Beginner's Guide to Barbarians - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Wastes - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 15 Barbarian with the Haedrig's Gift free set.

Raekor - Furious Charge Endgame Build  - A spec that mixes the powers of two sets, combining the all-around utility of IK with the agile Furious Charge devastation of Raekor. Might of the Earth - Earthquake Endgame Build - This spec favors devastating large areas over precise shots, exerts a masterful control over the battlefield and sports a very satisfying rotation. Wrath of the Wastes - Whirlwind Endgame Build  - With a playstyle distilled to its simplest essence, the build opens runs with  Whirlwind and mows enemies down in endless, spinning destruction. Seismic Slam Barbarian - a ruthless visual feast of a build, this cold-focused Barb spec is surprisingly tough and efficient.

Akkhan - Blessed Shield Endgame Build  -  This build plays on the archetype of using the shield as a weapon, charging it with holy might and reaping an entire field of demons with a single, mighty toss. Akkhan - Holy Shotgun Endgame Build  - The Holy Shotgun Crusader is a tanky, impenetrable bulwark of steel that absorbs blows and retaliates in blasts of pure, radiant vengeance.  Blessed Hammer Seeker of the Light - The reigning champion of many Seasons, the Hammerdin build is still a beast in terms of AoE damage and solo GR pushing potential. Thorns Invoker  - Likely the tankiest build in the game that is able to push into GR110+. Tough, focused and dead simple, this build almost Thorns itself to the absolute endgame. Sweep Attack Rolands  - This Crusader build revels in high-density rifts, shredding demons to pieces with the highest attack speed possible to the class. Bombardment Legacy of Nightmares  - The Bombardment Crusader spec takes assorted legendary items into a highly mobile, auto aiming and visually spectacular Thorns combination. Shield Bash Crusader - your best bet if you want to pound demon heads in Greater Rifts, if a bit on the clunky side. Demon Hunters

Marauder - Multishot Endgame Build - the Sentry-based mirror of the multishotting AoE love, this is a timing-intensive, but hugely rewarding build. Marauder - Cluster Arrow Endgame Build  - Requiring a deep understanding of DHs - the need for positioning and strategic companion placement - this build rewards you with great GR potential. Natalya - Rain of Vengeance Endgame Build  - This build transforms the elegance of Strafe into a potent tool that resets the cooldown of Rain of Vengeance, resulting in a potent, bursty playstyle. Shadow - Impale Endgame Build  - The Impale build emphasizes on singling out and bursting down priority targets, resulting in a ninja-like, elite hunting playstyle. Grenades Unhallowed Essence  - A deceptively simple build, whose sustained grenade damage and tanking potential outdoes many of its flashier counterparts. Fan of Knives Legacy of Nightmares  - One of the more exotic specs in the game, the LoN FoK build thrives at low health values and turns them to its own advantage - playing with permanent crits. Chakram Demon Hunter - the ninja star-throwing counterpart to multishotting builds, with comparable AoE and more fun visuals. Monks
      Beginner's Guide to Monks - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Raiment - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 15 Monk with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Sunwuko - Wave of Light Endgame Build  - This unique ranged Monk playstyle blows demons up in screen-wide, incinerating beams of searing light.

Raiment Shenlong - Generator Endgame Build  - The Monk's bread and butter, this build pummels enemies into the ground with the sheer might of the primary fist attacks. Sunwuko - Lashing Tail Kick Endgame Build  - Building on the classic Monk image, this spec jump in, whirlwind kicks the demons' teeth in, and jump to the next pack of monsters. Tempest Rush Monk - a fun and under-appreciated build that balances the fluidity of rushing through enemies with some carefully timed bursts. Exploding Palm/Mystic Allies Inna  - In this Monk take on a summoner build, you rally spiritual fighters at your side that burst entire groups of enemies with Exploding Palms. Necromancers
      Beginner's Guide to Necromancers - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Rathma - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 15 Necromancer with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Pestilence or Trag'Oul - Corpse Lance  - This build alternates long scouting sessions while waiting on cooldowns with the utter devastation once Devour meets Land of the Dead. Rathma - Skeletal Mage - If you like to keep a tight rein on your minions with precise commands, leading the menagerie of undead at your side in a resource-fueled frenzy, this build is the one for you. Command Skeletons Inarius  - Turning the skeleton warriors into a vicious, unrelenting superior to Bane of the Stricken, this build is a Necromancer's one-way ticket to the absolute endgame heights. Generator Necromancer - a unique take on Inarius gameplay, focusing on lightning-fast scythe attacks and intensive resource interplay. Skeletal Mages Trag'Oul  - This is the alternate take on the Mages build, specializing in extreme speed farming, while still offering capable GR pushes. Bone Storm Inarius  - While it took an undeniable nerf, this build is still one of the most relaxing, farming-appropriate melee builds of Necromancers. Corpse Explosion Inarius  - An underappreciated offshoot to the close range Inarius variants, this build is among the most visually appealing and satisfying Necromancer builds out there. Witch Doctors
      Beginner's Guide to Witch Doctors - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Helltooth  - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 15 Witch Doctor with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Arachyr - Firebats Endgame Build  - Requiring minimal upkeep, this build spins a circular, no-aiming-required wave of Firebats obliteration around you. Simple, neat, and utterly effective. Helltooth - Gargantuan Endgame Build  - This staple summoner build offers laid-back playstyle with automated minions, excellent sustain and protective options, and even some space for crowd control. Jade Harvester Endgame Build  - One of the oldest examples of interesting set execution, this melee spellcaster trades the safety of range and hexes for aggressive dives and DoT consumption. Zunimassa Gargantuan Endgame Build - This build thrives behind a thick wall of Fetish summons and is accompanied by lumbering, destructive Gargantuan brutes in a pure minion playstyle. Legacy of Nightmares Spirit Barrage Endgame Build  - Emerging from a convergence of obscure mechanics, this build offers a unique, spell-heavy, bursty playstyle that produces some of the most spectacular visuals of the class. Grasp of the Dead Witch Doctor - a no-cooldown, no-resource take on making corpses rain from the sky; Wizards
      Beginner's Guide to Wizards - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Tal Rasha  - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 15 Wizard with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Firebird (or Tal Rasha) - Meteor - Reaching for the heartstrings of Meteor lovers, this build channels torrents of arcane energy to conjure destructive, burning meteorites into a pure visual feast. DMO - Frozen Orb - Combining the Frozen Orb nostalgia of sorceresses past with the forgotten power of Slow Time wizardry, this build leaves enemies helpless, watching their frozen death creep ever closer. Energy Twister Wizard - a surprisingly undervalued, but horrifyingly potent on the time-bending, whirlwinding destruction from seasons of yore. Vyr Archon - The oldest devotees to the Archon playstyle: Vyr and its complementary Chantodo sets got an awesome boost of power in Patch 2.6.1. Tal Rasha - Explosive Blast - Aside from its distinct cannonade of arcane blasts, this build is very attractive to Wizards due to its ability to include Sage's set for materials farming. Arcane Torrent Tal Rasha - Spawning off the addition of Manald Heal this guide offers not one, but three very fun, tanky, non-Archon lightning variants to build around. Conclusion
      Despite the lack of changes over the past few months, Patch 2.6.1 remains one of the best states of Diablo 3 of all time, with multiple perfectly viable and endgame-worthy builds. Have fun and good luck in Season 15 - I leave you with my hour-long overview of some of my favorite builds in the latest patch!
