What is the point of Trag'Oul's Corroded Fang as the weapon slot for Kanai's Cube if you aren't using Grim Scythe?

I think it's for the 100% curse damage, it's why it also runs Dayntee's binding because you throw out decrepify and now you're taking half damage and dealing double to the targets you just cursed.

I'll be honest though, without an explanation of this builds rotations and synergies, I can't make it work that well. I'd appreciate any other feedback the community has.

So in speedfarming variation we have an aura that automatically consumes corpses for health but we need corpses for damage. A bit confusing and without 100% uptime of Land of The Dead I can't do any damage at all

Why unity instead of Conversion? I generally don't like conversion, but with the necro only having 3 different damage types it really seems like it might be great.

Unity is for the solo progression, one for you and one for your follower, however if you're playing with friends I'd heartily recommend Convention of Elements over Unity.

Although there's a few things in this build that don't seem to make sense, I finally got the full set of this build (excluding the Ring and Necklace) but it's very powerful, the constant corpses from the Gauntlets is really what makes it though. My only criticism is that you should definitely use Convention of Elements over Unity if you're not playing Solo Progression.

Where does this build generate Essence (resource) from, as it uses Decrepify, but no generators?

Using the aura is a bad idea. You then have no choice over when to use corpses for CL or for Devour. Using Cannibalize or Satiated is a much better option. And don't set up the numlock autocast or it runs into the same problem.

Honestly, I think they took the build from the top ranks of the PTR leaderboard and made "improvements." I originally put this build together on the PTR and have written up a Diablofans guide to try and explain how it is supposed to work and why gearing is the way it is (sincere apologies for the self-promotion). Hopefully a read through this will help you. I tried to explain how it all works together.

FYI, if you don't plan to run a Curse, I favor using Death Nova with a Blood Nova Rune in it's place. The damage with this set is insane, though it relegates Corpse Lance to a more secondary, single target role. I can usually pop three DN's, Devour and repeat((though you probably won't need more than one or two), through most fights. I save Corpse Lance on the off chance I don't want to get close to an enemy

It looks like this build got an alteration, I was enjoying the previous set up but this looks interesting. Are you supposed to generate starting corpses by using Blood Rush, or is the plan to use Land of the Dead and just curse everything to make the CD faster?

Devour is on the skillbar, no?  you have 1 skill which uses resources (the curse of your choice, mostly decrep except playing with other necros)

when I tried this build, what i did was first ran out to open place with tons of enemies (decrep along the way), then land of the dead and spam lance and devour.  that should easily build the amulet charge to 200 and 4-piece buff to 100.  rest of it is just keep the 4-piece buff up and decide whether to use land of the dead on CD or save it for tough fights.  The thing is that This build without ancient gear deals more dmg than my jade harvester WD (mostly ancient pieces without cubing stats, lv 61 leg gems)

 

As a side note, if you have the glove that buffs corpse explosion then this build, you can change the build to use it instead of corpse lance.  Just use blood rush on left-click.

Should use convention of elements in the cube instead. You need the Krysbin for other builds.

I like this (and its the reason why I made this account just now). In your defense, I dont think its just self promotion. Dont get me wrong, I like the guides here and I dont think deadset is a bad player or theorycrafter (at all) - but somebody whos pretty much addicted to a certain class PLUS a certain skill setup adds a little something - at least for me.

I wanted to get a Corpse Lance build, too and I dont like minions at all, so im pretty pleased to see that (as a casual player) I can combine the basic guide with your advanced knowledge.  Thanks!

I'm just running out of corpses all the time...

The playstyle of this build is unusual. You only do damage during Land of the Dead (and Simulacrum) uptime. The rest of the time, you are Blood Rushing around, hitting everything with Decrepify, and looking for an elite pack (preferably several at once) to assassinate.

The Elements ring, Fang weapon, all three cubed items, armor 6-piece set bonus, Reservoir rune (plus other sources of Max Essence), Spreading Malediction passive, and Blood Lance rune make Corpse Lance do a lot of damage. A lot.

GR tips:

  • Cooldown reduction equipment, Blood is Power passive, and the Borrowed Time rune take a big bite out of the LotD cooldown, but it's still long; be selective about when to use it.
  • Spam Devour while LotD is active, or you'll kill yourself with Blood Lances (which doesn't need to be spammed, just hold down its key). You can't literally suicide using life-spending abilities, but your health will be so low that an errant gust of wind is fatal. Worse: no more Lances!
  • The armor 4-pc set bonus gives a buff called Engorged, which is increased max health (up to double at 100 stacks) when you heal while already full life; the Cannibalize and Transfusion runes (the 2-pc bonus adds it to Blood Rush) both give stacks. It stays up, potentially for the whole rift, without having to manage it.
  • Channeling Pylons are amazing.
  • Corpses left over from LotD (don't eat them all after it ends!), and from Blood Rush (Molting rune from 2-pc bonus), are sources of damage if needed. Melt a rare/yellow, finish the champion/blue that was offscreen, break down a door... :P

Guest The confusion

I'm somewhat worried about running this updated version of the build. How do you not run out of corpses without the Moribund gauntlets?

LotD gives you unlimited corpses, Blood Rush gives you one (and it's in Devour range even if you teleport far), plus dead monsters.

  • Recommend getting 100 stacks of Engorged ASAP. Devouring corpses from Blood Rush (Molting rune) gives you ~5 stacks each, Blood Rushing through monsters (Transfusion rune) gives many, and the first activation of LotD will cap it. (It depends on the number and type of enemies closest to the entrance, but I sometimes use LotD at the very beginning of a rift, just for Engorged stacks.)
  • Casting Decrepify often is critical, it gives damage reduction (30% from the targets themselves, 50% on you from Dayntee's Binding belt) and makes things walk so slowly that kiting/grouping/avoidance is easier. I assign it to left-click. (Also, the Borrowed Time rune gives a handy counter for number of currently cursed targets. Note that Decrepify wears off the afflicted enemy when you move out of range, which is roughly 60y.)
  • The Trag'oul's set makes Blood Rush a lot stronger: in addition to the Molting and Transfusion runes mentioned already, Potency doubles your armor for 2 seconds after a Rush, Hemeostasis removes the health cost, and Metabolism gives you 2 charges. ~50% CDR lowers the cooldown to just a few seconds.
  • Corpse Lance already does so much damage that (depending on GR level) Toughness stats on equipment might be more valuable than additional offense. (I'm even using Amethyst gems on chest and legs! Mitigation from Armor and resistance is important, but Vitality and Life% are effectively worth twice as much as usual.)
  • I prefer a Hellfire Amulet and Unity ring to the Endless Walk set. You could also use Unity instead of Convention of Elements, if you like EW.

It is hard, though. On the plus side, the player skill ceiling is (in my opinion) higher than average. The build is strong; not that the leaderboard is the best metric, but at time of writing, 99% of the top 1000 solo necromancers use this strategy.

Hey all, new to the forum! First post, and hopefully bringing good discussion :)

Ive been trying this out build and it seems I'm not alone when it comes to the whole "running out of corpses" issue, but upon tinkering with what to assign in the jewelry slot for the cube I ran into something that seems to be helping (for me, at least).

I have a well-rolled Krysbin (98% damage increase against slowed enemies) andIi wear that, so instead of using Convention of ElementsConvention of Elements in the Cube, I tried The JohnstoneThe Johnstone 

Since the stacks of Macabre knowledge stacks with you while you're outside LOTD waiting for it on CD and last until they're depleted, I seem to be doing damage more consistently and creating corpses faster with 200 stacks of Macabre Knowledge vs the damage boost from the annoying rotation time of Convention of ElementsConvention of Elements

Was wondering if anyone has given this alteration a try?

I gave that a try. Macabre Knowledge doesn't add damage during Land of the Dead. It definitely has a strong effect when LotD is down, I even killed a couple rares using just a few Blood Rush corpses, which is nice... but "when LotD is down" accounts for a tiny portion of my damage. I prefer CoE; even if you don't pay attention to its cycle, on average you get 33% of the damage bonus. (All other classes get an average of only 25%, and it's still Best in Slot for a lot of builds. And of course you can pay attention to the cycle for even more.)

      Season 21 is live for more than 48 hours, and the community reacts to the Seasonal buff that makes your character periodically channel an elemental power that unleashes into the environment.
      If you haven't had the chance to catch up with the latest news, Season 21 just started and with it came a new Seasonal power that makes your character do all sorts of stuff like breath lightning, rain meteors from the skies around you, release twisters of energy, and more.
      (Source)
      The elements have deemed you worthy. With you as their champion, the burning hells will face the Trials of Tempests! Your character will occasionally (every 90 seconds) channel an elemental power which unleashes into the environment for a limited time: Meteors rain from the skies around you. Breathe lightning. A wall of flame engulfs everything. Release twisters of pure energy. Crush your foes under the weight of rolling snowballs. The community perception of the latest Season 12 buff is all but positive. A Reddit thread titled "How did this seasonal effect make it past PTR?" has surfaced and accumulated more than 300 upvotes and we are highlighting the biggest concerns player have with the new Season theme:
      Apparently, the graphic effects make it nearly impossible to see what's going on, making it extremely frustrating for Hardcore players. If you fight Orlash and get the breath, it is difficult to determine where to stand. Card
      The sound that comes with it is obnoxious and distracts from gameplay and it cannot be turned off, Redditor stealth_elephant says. The third main concern is power. Many Redditors claim that it is good enough for ending massacres, but mediocre when it comes to killing enemies. Card
      On the other side of the spectrum, Wudi provides enough perspective on both ends. He discovered that it is much easier to kill Rift Guardians now with the Season 21 buff in a group where you get 10,000 stack to virtually one-shot it.
      What has your experience been with the Season 21 buff so far?
    • By Stan
      It seems Blizzard forgot to turn on the Season 21 buff on consoles and Leaderboards are showing Season 19 clears.
      Community Manager PezRadar confirmed this to be a bug that they are currently looking into. It affects Xbox, Playstation, and Nintendo Switch.
      (Source)
      Did Blizzard forgot to turn on the buff on the Xbox???
      Looking into this! Thanks for the reports.
      A fix for Leaderboards that are showing old Season 19 clears is coming no sooner than Monday.
      (Source)
      In addition to the season buff issues (I see already reported) - the leaderboards on switch are showing the s19 clears instead of current season.
      Hi all - We need some engineers who will be available on Monday to really dig into this. This seems to be affecting all consoles. Will get on this first thing Monday. Sorry about the inconvenience on this.

      Season 21 starts today!  It's going to be quite a season, especially for Demon Hunters. We've already taken a look at the top builds for solo pushing, speedfarming and group compositions, as well as the meta-breaking new 3x DH-based XP farm setup which dethroned Rat runs, so now its time to head for the full guides themselves, and we have them ready for all classes!

      The Support build still reigns supreme, as it retains it's place in the new XP farm meta, and the rest of the rankings haven't changed since the last season, as Barbarians didn't get many changes.
      Support Barbarian (Raekor + HotNS + Istvan) (Top Tier) Speed Farming Variant Rend Barbarian (WotW + Istvan) (Top Tier) Speed Farming Variation Seismic Slam Barbarian (MotE + Endless Walk) (Top Tier) Speed Farming Variation Frenzy Barbarian (HotNS + Endless Walk) (High Tier) Speed Farming Variation Hammer of the Ancients Raekor Barbarian (Raekor + Endless Walk + Istvan) (High Tier) Speed Farming Variation Hammer of the Ancients IK Barbarian (IK + Endless Walk) (High Tier) Speed Farming Variation Furious Charge Barbarian (IK + Raekor) (High Tier) Speed Farming Variation Leap/Earthquake Barbarian (MotE + Bastions) (High Tier) Speed Farming Variation Hammer of the Ancients GR Barbarian (Legacy of Dreams Gem) (Mid Tier) Whirlwind Wastes Barbarian (WotW + Bul-kathos) (Mid Tier) Speed Farming Variation Frenzy Thorns Barbarian (LoN) Speed Farming Variation
       
      Crusaders also didn't get a big shift in rankings, as the seasonal power doesn't really affect the individual builds.
      Heaven's Fury Crusader (Aegis of Valor) (Top Tier) Speed Farming Variation Blessed Shield Crusader (Legacy of Dreams Gem) (Top Tier) Thorns Crusader (Invoker + Endless Walk) (Top Tier) Speed Farming Variation Condemn LoD Crusader (Legacy of Dreams Gem) (High Tier) Condemn Akkhan Crusader (Akkhan + Bastions) (High Tier) Speed Farming Variation Hammerdin Crusader (SoL + Endless Walk) (High Tier) Speed Farming Variation Sweep Attack Crusader (Roland + Endless Walk) (Mid Tier) Speed Farming Variation Fist of the Heavens Crusader (Aegis of Valor) (Mid Tier) Speed Farming Variation Bombardment Crusader (LoN) (Mid Tier) Speed Farming Variation Shield Bash Crusader (Roland + Bastions) Speed Farming Variation
       
      Season 21 is very much the season of the Demon Hunter, as their new Gears of Dreadlands set brought them 2 top tier builds, both for solo pushing and XP farming.
      Support Demon Hunter (GoD + Marauder) (Top Tier) (New) Hungering Arrow Demon Hunter (GoD + Bastions) (Top Tier) (New) Bolas Variation Rapid Fire Demon Hunter (Legacy of Dreams Gem) (Top Tier) Rapid Fire Natalya Demon Hunter (Natalya + Endless Walk) (Top Tier) Impale Demon Hunter (Shadow + Endless Walk) (High Tier) Speed Farming Variation Group Progression Variation Sentry Demon Hunter (Marauder + Natalya + Endless Walk) (High Tier) Multishot Demon Hunter (Unhallowed + Bastions) (High Tier) Speed Farming Variation Cluster Arrow Demon Hunter  (Marauder + Bastions) (Mid Tier) Speed Farming Variation Rockets-based Progression Variation Grenades Demon Hunter (Unhallowed + Endless Walk) (Mid Tier) Speed Farming Variation Rain of Vengeance Demon Hunter (Natalya + Bastions) (Mid Tier) Speed Farming Variation Fan of Knives LoD Demon Hunter (Legacy of Dreams Gem) Chakram Demon Hunter (Unhallowed + Bastions) Speed Farming Variation
       
      Monk support is still on top as the class build rankings stay the same as last season.
      Support Monk (Inna + Born's Command + Captain Crimson) (Top Tier) Tempest Rush Sunwuko Monk (Monkey King + Captain Crimson) (Top Tier) Speed Farming Variation Tempest Rush Patterns Monk (Patterns of Justice + Captain Crimson) (Top Tier) Speed Farming Variation Wave of Light LoD Monk (Legacy of Dreams Gem) (Top Tier) Wave of Light Monk (Monkey King + Captain Crimson) (High Tier) Speed Farming Variation Inna Variation Generator Monk (Rainment + Endless Walk + Captain Crimson + Shenlong) (High Tier) Speed Farming Variation Inna Variation Seven-Sided Strike Monk (Uliana + Captain Crimson + Endless Walk) (High Tier) Speed Farming Variation Lashing Tail Kick LoD Monk (Legacy of Dreams Gem) (Mid Tier) Lashing Tail Kick Monk (Monkey King) (Mid Tier) Speed Farming Variation Exploding Palm Monk (Inna + Endless Walk) Speed Farming Variation Mystic Ally Pets Variation
       
      The Necromancer may have gotten the shorter end of the new set stick, but they did get plenty of new toys to play with, resulting in a new build at the top of the list and two more top tier ones, with a whole lot of LoD!
      Corpse Explosion LoD Necromancer  (LoD) (Top Tier) (New) Key Farming Variation Support Necromancer (Pestilence + Captain Crimson) (Top Tier) Poison Scythe LoD Necromancer (LoD) (Top Tier) (New) Trash Killer Variation Corpse Lance LoD Necromancer (LoD) (Top Tier) Skeletal Mage Singularity/Archers LoD Necromancer (LoD) (Top Tier) (New) Speed Farming Variation Key Farming Variation Corpse Lance Necromancer (Pestilence + Endless Walk) (High Tier) Speed Farming Variation Trag'Oul Variation Group Progression Variation Skeletons Thorns Solo LoD Necromancer (LoD) (High Tier) Generator Necromancer (Inarius) (High Tier) Speed Farming Variation Skeletal Mages Rathma Necromancer (Rathma + Jesseth) (Mid Tier) Speed Farming Variation Group Speed GR Variation Skeletal Mages Trag'Oul Necromancer (Trag'Oul + Jesseth) (Mid Tier) Solo Progression Variation Blood Nova LoD Necromancer (LoD) (Mid Tier)
       
      The WD's new set from a while ago has crept up the rankings and landed on top, edging out the ever popular Poison Dart build.
      Spirit Barrage Witch Doctor (Mundunugu + Endless Walk) (Top Tier) Speed Farming Variation Carnevil Poison Dart Witch Doctor (Zunimasa + Aughild's Authority + Endless Walk) (Top Tier) Speed Farming Variation Carnevil Poison Dart Dagger of Darts Witch Doctor (LoD) (Top Tier) Soul Harvest Witch Doctor (Jade Harvester) (Top Tier) Speed Farming Variation Spirit Barrage Witch Doctor (Legacy of Dreams Gem) (High Tier) Speed Farming Variation Group Progression Variation Firebats Witch Doctor (Arachyr + Endless Walk) (High Tier) Speed Farming Variation Group Progression Variation Gargantuan Zunimasa Witch Doctor (Zunimasa + Endless Walk) (Mid Tier) Speed Farming Variation Gargantuan Helltooth Witch Doctor (Helltooth + Endless Walk) (Mid Tier) Speed Farming Variation Zombie Bears Witch Doctor (Helltooth + Endless Walk) Speed Farming Variation Acid Cloud Witch Doctor (Helltooth + Bastions) Speed Farming Variation Grasp of the Dead Witch Doctor (Helltooth + Endless Walk)
       
      Wizards retain their rankings from last season, with the ubiquitous Archon remaining on top.
      Archon Wizard (Vyr + Chantodo) (Top Tier) Speed Farming Variation Mammoth Hydra Wizard (Legacy of Dreams Gem) (Top Tier) Frost Hydra Wizard (Typhon's Veil) (High Tier) Meteor Wizard (Firebird + Endless Walk) (High Tier) Speed Farming Variation Tal Rasha Variation Star Pact Variation Frozen Orb Wizard (Delsere + Endless Walk) (High Tier) Energy Twister Wizard (Delsere + Endless Walk) (High Tier) Manald Lightning Archon Wizard (Tal Rasha + Vyr) (Mid Tier) Group Progression Variation Solo Progression Variation Archon Wizard (Firebird + Chantodo + Endless Walk) (Mid Tier) Speed Farming Variation Arcane Torrent Manald Wizard (Tal Rasha + Endless Walk) (Mid Tier) Electrocute Variation Spectral Blade Variation Arcane Orbit Wizard (Delsere + Endless Walk) Speed Farming Variation Explosive Blast Farming Wizard (Tal Rasha + Sage) Greater Rifting Variation
        Those are all the class guides we have, the season start in a matter of hours and we hope you have a great time!
