Isn't Arachyr Firebats better than LoN Spirit Barrage this patch for the AoE DPS?

For solo, yes, not for group runs.

Will a guide for the support necromancer be added?

Will ask Deadset to add one. As a quick reference:

  • Helm: Leoric's Crown - roll for 100% affix.
  • Shoulders: Pestilence Defense - roll for max CDR and defensive stats.
  • Neck: Rondal's Locket - roll for max CDR.
  • Chest: Pestilence Robe - defensive stats.
  • Gloves: Gloves of Worship - max CDR.
  • Belt: Vigilante Belt - max CDR.
  • Wrists: Nemesis Bracers - defensive stats.
  • Legs: Captain Crimson's Thrust - defensive stats.
  • Boots: Captain Crimson's Waders - defensive stats.
  • Ring 1: Oculus Ring - max CDR and affix.
  • Ring 2: Lornelle's Sunstone - max CDR and affix.
  • Weapon: Ingeom - max CDR.
  • Off-hand: Stormshield - max CDR.
  • Cube 1: Ahavarion, Spear of Lycander
  • Cube 2: Aquila Cuirass
  • Cube 3: Obsidian Ring of Zodiac

You need absolutely max CDR on every item slot you can. Look for +Gold and Globe pickup radius where you can in secondaries to help your barb. Push for as much defensive stats as you can. For skills:

  • Corpse Lance - Brittle Touch
  • Frailty - Aura of Frailty
  • Blood Rush - Metabolism
  • Death Nova - Blight
  • Devour - Cannibalize
  • Land of the Dead - Frozen Touch
  • Passives - Stand Alone, Life From Death, Blood is Power, Final Service

For gems, run a diamond in your helmet, rubies or diamonds in your normal gear and a Gem of Ease in your weapon. For legendary gems, run Gogok of Swiftness, Gem of Efficacious Toxin and Iceblink.

For playstyle, you need to have as close to 100% uptime on Land of the Dead as possible. You should be constantly using Devour to spawn Health Globes for your Rathma/Barb to pick up. Use Death Nova to keep Land of the Dead ready for use through Obsidian Ring. Always stay close to rares/bosses before moving on to let Frailty kill them. If you aren't killing every boss/rare pack in the chat window, you are playing the build wrong. 

All the DPS in the group for speeds will be coming from you, since you are the root of all globes for your Rathma players. If you mess up and don't have LOTD up, you can't spawn globes, so you'll have no DPS from your group.

This response was posted just before Season 12 opened. Now my friends are saying the Witch Dr. LoN-Spirit Barrage build is no longer good for group runs, and that Firebats is now best for group. Is this now true, or does your original response stand? Thank you!

Pretty much any LoN build is now dead due to LoN being severely ignored compared to every other set being buffed.

      Update: As mentioned in the comments, the contest is only available to residents of the USA, Canada and Mexico (and not even all US states).
      The Switch release of Diablo 3 is bringing some new events to everyone, as we're getting an interesting scavenger hunt, both of the online and real world varieties! The rewards vary from Switch console and D3 bundles, to just the game, as well as real life Diablo themed weapon replicas. The Diablo twitter account will be posting hints for the scavenger hunts in the coming days, and you can read up on the detailed rules below:
      Legendary Hunt (source)
      Whether you’re a Diablo veteran or a complete newcomer, chances are you love treasure. To get you in shape for Diablo III Eternal Collection on the Nintendo Switch, we’re inviting you on a treasure hunt. Get ready to stretch those loot-chasing muscles and get your hands on some sweet (and very real) rewards! We’ve hidden items across the internet (as well as in a few real-world locations), and it’s up to you to find them. Don’t worry—we’ll be giving you some clues on where to look. Learn more below!

      In the coming days, we’ll be sharing some clues on our Twitter page. Once you decipher them, visit the corresponding location (online or in real life) to find an item or QR code. Click the link or scan the item you found, and you’ll be whisked away to your collections page, where you can track all the items you’ve collected so far.
      The items you find earn you entries into a prize drawing, where you could win all kinds of amazing treasures. The number of entries you get for each item you find varies on its quality, so keep an eye out for those Legendaries!

      Among the prizes up for grabs are copies of the Diablo III Eternal Collection Nintendo Switch Bundle, digital copies of the game, and various collectible goodies. You can also earn real life versions of some of the items you’ll find on the hunt! These are one-of-a-kind artifacts, brought to life by the crafting masters at Volpin Props.
      If the idea of having your very own real-life Legendary item sounds appealing, be sure to follow us on Twitter and be on the lookout for the first clues.

      Think you have what it takes to solve all the clues and hunt down these treasures? There’s only one way to find out, nephalem! Good luck on the hunt, and may the best adventurer win.
