Season 17 Guides: Barbarian and Necromancer

Recommended Posts

GtVorGV.jpg
 

The season of guides has started! With S17 starting tomorrow it's time for Deadset to take us through all the updated builds for these two classes and, much more importantly for this season especially, the new builds that we get to try out thanks to the Legacy of Nightmares seasonal affix! We get brand new builds like the LoN HotA for Barbarians, LoN Corpse Lance and LoN Blood Nova for Necromancers, as well as a whole lot of updated ones as well.
Let's get started:

Great work as always! But I still wonder why not rework Rathma build for pure Skele mages especially speed variant as it is so much stronger that can't be ignored. Current Skele Archer setup feels too weak... Also I think LoN Thorns Necro don't need Cooldown Reduction in stats.

Thank you, Icy Veins and Deadset for these build updates! Can't wait to see the Crusader's! 

LoN Captain America is basically swap rings out for SoJ and CoE, amulet/ring of choice in the cube. You can either wear Leoric and cube Nemesis, or wear Andariel and cube Leoric. Witching Hour or Vigilante depending your CDR progress. Skele shoulders and illusory boots. Fire damage, so magefist, roll fire on soj/neck/wrist/helm (if andariel), and of course the ridiculously in demand swampland waders. aquila cuirass because shield is free. hellfire neck for 5th passive, and all the remaining slots are the same as they are for the akkhans build.

      Players have been reporting their inability to trade with others in Diablo. Blizzard confirmed there were some issues with game licenses and manual purchase approvals which caused this problem to occur. A hotfix has been already deployed, which should prevent the bug from happening again.

      I am unable to trade with players in my party/game session, they cant trade with me, sais the I am busy whilst I am not, also when they drop it I cant pick it up - appears faded - I do not have a fresh account been playing d3 since season 3 in seasonal, never had this problem before.
      Hey all,

      An investigation was launched on this immediately and there were some issues with game licenses and manual purchase approvals that caused this limitation to occur. We've deployed a hotfix already, which should prevent this situation from occurring again.

      If you are still experiencing this issue, please hang tight; it does require some manual review on our end to clear up and appropriately re-flag any remaining affected accounts. This process is already underway, so we ask for your patience as we complete this step.

      Thanks for your understanding and apologies for any confusion this may have caused.

      In case you missed it, here's part 2 with the rest of the classes.

      * Updated article with Barbarian, Crusader and Demon Hunter  guide links.
      We finally have the release date for one of, if not the most exciting season in Diablo 3 so far, and it's time to start getting hyped for this Friday! While one of the most interesting things about the new season is picking up random ancients along the way and stringing together some weird builds as you go, there's always some combinations that go really well together.
      Personally I'll be trying to recreate my Cyclone-then-activate-every-available-passive-aoe-in-the-game "build", but we wanted to use these few days we have until the season starts to hear what builds you're looking forward to or planning, regardless of whether they will actually "work" or not. We also poked our own guide writer Deadset to see what he thinks some of the more fun and competitive Legacy of Nightmares builds might be. We're going to start slow, with just 3 builds this time around, with the rest coming later in the week.
      Here are Deadset's build suggestions for Barbarians, Crusaders and Demon Hunters:
      Look for the next installment of Deadset's build suggestions for S17 later in the week, and if you're looking for more in-depth guides on the above mentioned builds and in general for the season, they'll be dropping throughout this week, so stay tuned here and we'll have you ready for the Season of Nightmares. And don't forget to share your LoN plans with us in the comments as well!
