Build guide

This is a pet thorns builds, which means the Necromancer isn't doing the core damage in this build. Let the pets do their thing in Greater Rifts.

Command Golem (Bone Golem): The active function of this skill stuns the target. This skill is important because each stun will activate the bonus from your Krysbin's Sentence (You deal 100% increased damage against slowed enemies or triple this bonus against enemies afflicted by any other type of control-imparing effect).

Bone Armor (Thy Flesh Sustained): Maintain the full 10 stacks of Bone Armor at all times for the damage reduction benefit. The rune gives you additional Life regeneration per target hit.

Command Skeletons (Dark Mending): Actively target specific armies, and keep the "active" function of this skill refreshed. With the Dark Mending, you will get healed as the pets deal damage.

Leech (Cursed Ground): You are healed for 1% of your max life every second per enemy in the cursed area for 30 sec. Pop Leech when you group up large densities of enemies. Optionally, you can switch this skill to Blood Rush (Potency) for more mobility instead.

Frailty (Scent of Blood): This skill kills all enemies below 15% health; and your minions deal 15% more damage.

Devour (Satiated): Consumes corpses and restores 10 Essence per corpse, and increases your max life by 2% for 2 sec for each corpse devoured. Ideally, you want to Numlock this skill. Otherwise, spam it. Optionally, you can switch this skill with Grim Scythe (Cursed Scythe) -- but you would have to be in melee range. Even if you don't have Grim Scythe, keep the Trag'Oul Corroded Fang, because your other curses get a 200% damage bonus.

You should be moving around constantly to prevent damage, but also because moving around will trigger your Kanai's Cube power from Hexing Pants of Mr. Yan (Your resource generation and damage is increased by 25% while moving and decreased by 20-25% while standing still). Got the memo? Move. Move. Move.

Important... this build doesn't have crit chance or crit damage stats because THORNS doesn't benefit from them. This is a Thorns build.

GEMS

Helm: purple gem (23% Life)
Torso and Pants: Orange gems (280 Intelligence)
Weapon: Orange gem (38,000 Thorns damage)

RINGS

When you are playing SOLO equip a Unity ring and give another Unity ring to your Follower + the Relic that makes him invulnerable. If you play as a GROUP, switch the Unity ring for a Stone of Jordan.
