Solo Necromancer Build 

The Best Solo Necromancer Build.

For this particular build, I focused on solo skills for the players choosing Necromancers as their class.

  • Deals a good amount of damage.
  • Has high offensive capabilities.
  • Focuses on summoning.
  • Low defensive capabilities.
  • No support.
  • Why I Chose This: I chose the following solo necromancer build as it has high DPS potential and can summon skeletons to fight the enemies. 

Spell Type 

For the solo build, I prefer Bone Magic instead of Blood, as it is more suitable for engaging in combat without assistance. Also, you can use projectiles against your enemies that can deal heavy damage. 

Spells And Skills  

For spells and skills, I focused on more defensive than offensive ones.

I recommend unlocking spells like Bone Spirit, Bone Splinters, Bone Spare, Bone Prison, and Decrepify. Don’t forget to unlock Army Of The Dead and Ultimate Bone Storm as well. These skills will really complement the offensive style of the high AOE build you’re going for. 

Book Of Dead Upgrades To Unlock 

I would highly recommend unlocking the following upgrades for the best solo Necromancer build in Diablo 4:

  • The first upgrade is Skeletal Warriors, which will allow you to unlock the Sacrifice Ability in skeletal skirmishers. 
  • Next is Skeletal Mages, as it will increase damage when alive after 5 seconds.

  • Lastly, the Blood Golem upgrade allows players to intake 15% of their damage without losing their health. 

Tips For Solo Build  

In addition to the build I have mentioned above, you can consider using the tips below to make your build more powerful:

  • Make sure to run the solo Necromancer build with a Blood Golem. 
  • Doing so will allow the players to absorb 15% of the damage from enemies. 
  • The solo build will allow you to use the Bone Storm Skill. 
  • The Bone Storm Skill will be much stronger thanks to the Sacrifice Effect.

  • The essence will allow the players to increase their bone skills and give them a 1% boost for every essence they use. 
  • Further on in their gameplay, they can also use blood skills.

  • Enhanced Haemorrhage will give you a Blood Orb and two additional essences with each enemy you hit. 
  • The second upgrade, Initiates Haemorrhage, will allow the players to obtain a Fortify ability and a 1.5% chance for the enemies to fortify you each time you attack your enemies. 

Core Skills

Consider the following core skills:

  1. Blood Surge (Active Skill): Utilize Blood Surge as your primary skill for a powerful blood build. It allows you to draw blood from enemies, dealing 20% more damage. 
  2. Supernatural Blood Surge (Upgrade): Fortify yourself each time you hit an enemy with a Blood Surge Nova.
  3. Unliving Energy (Passive): Increases your maximum essence by three.
  4. Reconstitution (Optional): Provides a 4% higher chance to create a corpse at the enemy target location.

  2. Enhanced Iron Maiden (Upgrade): Gain five essences for each cursed enemy instead of using your own essence.
  3. Abhorrent Iron Maiden (Upgrade): Heals 5% of your maximum health when killing an enemy afflicted with Iron Maiden.

The players can invest in ultimate skills like Blood Wave to strengthen their build.
