Inarius Corpse Explosion Necromancer

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?"

      This build plays upon the strengths of Trag'Oul's 6-Piece set while also granting huge mobility.  Every part of this class plays well with each other.  Your Bane of the Trapped along with Krysbin's are going to be proc'd heavily due to your constant stuns.  Your Lornelle's is going to benefit from the health drain of the Skeleton Mages, who in turn benefit from Trag'Oul's 6-piece set bonus.  This is a generator-less class.  Your essence will instead come from Devour and picking up health globes.  Because of this, it might be suggested to re-roll some of your pieces to increase the range at which you can pick up health globes.  All in all, this is a fast trash and elite clearing build that will allow you to speedfarm/speedbounty/speedrift without much trouble.  There are lots of trade-offs in damage for increased survivability, speed and mobility.  As such, this build is not suitable for GR progression. 
      Gear And Cube
      Weapon: Jesseth Skullscythe
      Off Hand: Jesseth Skullshield - We want the set bonus from having both of the Jesseth items equipped.  Command Skeletons is going to be your main "attack", as it allows you to focus your pets on a target.  Having this set bonus keeps your skeletons commanded as long as there are enemies on the screen, and it powers up your Skeleton Mages.
      Belt: Krelm's Buff Belt - For the speed buff.  If movement speed is less important to you than damage (for example, if not playing on Season 16), then you can replace this with The Witching Hour.
      Wrists: Reaper's Wraps or Nemesis Bracers - The Reaper's Wraps are are craftable.  I'd recommend these for running bounties/goblins.  For speedrifting, go with the Nemesis Bracers.
      Head: Trag'Oul's Guise
      Chest: Trag'Oul's Scales
      Shoulders: Trag'Oul's Heart
      Hands: Tasker and Theo or Trag'Oul's Claws - Use T&T if playing on Season 16, otherwise take the Trag'Oul's.
      Legs: Trag'Oul's Hide
      Feet: Trag'Oul's Stalwart Greaves
      Ring One: Krysbin's Sentence - This will proc nearly all the time with this build.  Super powerful ring.
      Ring Two: Lornelle's Sunstone - This is an odd take for most builds, but with a good roll, you can get +Int, +CHD, and +CHC as well as pretty great damage reduction on this ring.  For that purpose, this ring is mandatory.
      Neck: Wisdom of Kalan - This could be substituted for a more damage-focused neck, like The Johnstone or a Hellfire Amulet with good stats and a good passive.  The extra 5 stacks of Bone Armor will help our movement speed, however.
      Cube Weapon: Scythe of the Cycle - Straight up Skeleton Mage buff.
      Cube Armor: Steuart's Greaves - If not playing Season 16, you could put Tasker and Theo here.  However, the movement speed buff is incredible.
      Cube Jewelery: Circle of Nailuj's Evol - Another big Skeleton Mage buff.
      Skills and Runes
      Left Click:  Bone Armor, with the Dislocation rune.
      Right Click: Blood Rush.  Rune doesn't matter, since Trag'Oul's will give you all of them.
      1: Skeleton Mage, with the Life Support rune.
      2: Command Skeletons, with the Frozen Grasp rune.
      3: Land of the Dead, with the Frozen Lands rune.  I hardly use this in my runs, as it's not really necessary.  It's more of an "oh *filtered*!" skill I use in emergencies.  That said, this is great against bosses.
      4: Devour, with the Devouring Aura rune.  Your biggest essence generator.  The rune just makes it easy to manage, but if you like pressing buttons constantly, take the Cannibalize rune.
      Passives: 
      1: Dark Reaping
      2: Grisly Tribute
      3: Overwhelming Essence
      4: Final Service
      5: Extended Servitude - Only take this if you've got a Hellfire equipped that gives you one of the above passives.
      Stats:
      Int should be your main stat.  The following three stats are my recommended priorities in order after Int: +%CHC, +Armor, Gold/Health Pickup range increase
      Paragon:
      Paragon Priority should be :
      Core: Movement Speed > Intelligence > Maximum Essence > Vitality
      Offensive: Crit Chance > Crit Damage > Cooldown Reduction > Attack Speed
      Defensive: Armor > Resist All > Life Regen > Life
      Utility: Life Per Hit > Resource Cost Reduction > Area Damage > Gold Find
      Gems:
      Helm - Diamond
      Chest - Two Topaz, one Amathyst
      Legs - Two Topaz
      Weapon - Emerald
      Anything not jewelry - Topaz
      Jewelry - Bane of the Trapped, Enforcer, Bane of the Powerful
      Playstyle:
      This build has an odd playstyle.  Aside from the small output of Bone Armor, you are not going to do any damage directly.  You're going to pop Blood Rush as much as you want to zoom around the map.  When you encounter enemies, you want to get near them and pop Bone Armor.  After that, Command Skeletons to one of the enemies (you can pop this multiple times per encounter.  Whoever you target with this will become your damage priority.  Then pop exactly 5 Skeleton Mages.  While your pets do the work, Blood Rush around the pack of enemies in order to Devour corpses to restore your essence.  Pop Bone Armor as it becomes available. 
      Just do this from pack to pack and you'll be fine.  I've been able to clear Act II bounties in less than 7 minutes, a Golbin Farm run in less than 4, and a regular rift in under 2.  This is all on T13, by the way.  I am Paragon 590 as of the writing of this post.
      If you find that you aren't doing enough damage, remember to make sure that your Skeletons are always Commanded.  If you don't command them, you're losing out on the damage bonus granted by the Jesseth set.  Also, make sure you keep 10 Skeleton Mages up at all times.  This equates to casting it 5 times, if you have Nailuj's Evol cubed.
