Hey! Just wondered how on earth you're supposed to stay alive with this build. :) Currently got all pieces except Krysbin's, but damage isn't the issue (Actually bombing my way through things. ..While my cheat death keeps me vulnerable anyway ^^)

My Dayntee's isn't fantastic, but I'm getting absolutely mauled on TXII and above.

Also wondering about sustain with this build: Can it be that you're limited to LPH from Paragons, The gem for primaries and life globes? With the amount of stationary scythe-hacking in this build, it seems like more sustain is required to survive.


-Some noob, ready to learn :D

I think the problem with this build is that it doesn't know what it wants to be.


Starting with the GR build (the speedfarming has it's own problems):

Summoned Skeles and Mage makes me think pet master. Even if it's suicide skeles. But the Stand Alone passive is counter intuitive (It doesn't take long for more to spawn), and anything operating outside the Inarius 6 Bonestorm is weak. Too weak to bother with.

But it's an Inarius build, which says melee. And Grim Scythe/Trag Fang/Depth Diggers/Simplicity's Strength agree. That being said, the Nova Blight Rune is sub-optimal - The BotT aura already slows anything nearby, which procs the Krysbin, and the DR is minimal next to the 15 stacks of Bone Armour you should have up anyway.

Simplicity's Strength and BotS suggests it's a generator build. Skele/Mage aside, Nova and Inarius Bonestorm synergise way too well to not get spammed.

Because Grim Scythe/Trag is the only source of curses (in the GR variant), you don't get the full benefit of Spreading Malediction. Worse, you have only sporadic activation on the Dayntees. Trash Mobs die too quickly, and all it takes is one bad hit.

Then there's the Nemesis Bracers, but no In-Geom or BotP to take advantage of the extra elites. Nemesis Bracers will help clear times, but waster potential. Parthan Defenders could be an alternative, since you're using the Dislocation rune.

The CoE is useful on a Necromancer because you have a three element rotation, while most classes have four, but that does mean an 8 second window where your spells are less effective. Not usually a problem, but the core play of the build is around Nayr's Black Death, which pretty much calls for constant casting.




As for the speed farming build...


Downside, loss of the Death Nova. That AoE clears trash in a flash.

On the upside, Aura of Frailty synergies with Dayntees. Oh wait, Goldwrap. Never mind. At least there's now a Briggs, perfect for drawing every mob on the screen into AoE range. Wait...

And it's a Grim Scythe build... Without the Trag's Fang's 200% bonus.

How's the gameplay differ... More mages, no Nova? Still a melee focused build, with everything being pulled into melee range, now with less melee range skills.

I would've dropped the Mages and kept the Nova personally.

Then again, I probably would just rely on a Shadowhook, rather than a balancing act of Nayr and Ledgers.

      Blizzard today posted an update about their plans for Diablo at this year's BlizzCon. They are working on multiple different Diablo projects right now, but more details will be revealed when the time is right.
      It appears that BlizzCon will primarily focus on the Nintendo Switch version of the game and they are not ready to unveil Diablo 4 just yet.

      BlizzCon 2018 is almost here and we’ve seen a lot of rumors flying around about our plans for Diablo at the show. These are very exciting times—we currently have multiple teams working on different Diablo projects and we can’t wait to tell you all about them . . . when the time is right.
      We know what many of you are hoping for and we can only say that “good things come to those who wait,” but evil things often take longer. We appreciate your patience as our teams work tirelessly to create nightmarish experiences worthy of the Lord of Terror.
      While we won’t be ready to announce all of our projects, we do intend to share some Diablo-related news with you at the show.
      November 2 will be an especially diabolical date—not only is it the first day of BlizzCon, it’s also when Diablo III arrives on the Nintendo Switch. If you’re planning to pick up the game (the digital download will be available starting at midnight on launch day) and are joining us in Anaheim, be sure to bring your console. We’d love to slay some demons with you on the show floor.
      Again, we want to thank you for your patience and support. We are eternally grateful to you and the millions of other Diablo fans around the world whose passion for this franchise inspires us and keeps our fires burning.
      We’ll see you in hell . . . and at BlizzCon!

      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:

      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.
