Diablo Immortal Necromancer Build with Skills, Gems and Leveling Tips

You’ve decided on the Necromancer for your new adventure in Diablo Immortal, and it’s time to jump into the action and start learning how to play this class. The first moments of games are pretty directed since new abilities are unlocked as you level up. But inevitably, you will end up having more skills than available slots.

A little later, with a bit of luck, you will find your first legendary equipment, making everything a little more complicated. Here we present a relatively simple first build, with the skills we recommend you use and the most useful legendary items during the leveling phase.

Skills
The Skill Rotation: Oseopraxis, Scythe, then Body Explosion, followed by Spirit Fire. The Skeleton Mage is used on stronger enemies to finish off survivors as you go.

Legendary items
You will unlikely find all of these items as you level up. Remember to upgrade your gear as much as possible. Even if it’s not legendary, you can transfer the free progress to the new items you’ll find and equip later.

There are many viable legendary items for the Necromancer, some just giving the abilities listed above a boost and others warranting a skill change.

Head:
Skullveil – The Skeleton Mage’s damage is increased by 20%.

Chest:
Flickering Warmth – Bone Armor now summons three bone orbs that spin around you.

Shoulders:
Rotspur – Corpse Explosion no longer causes an explosion but a cloud of poison that deals continuous damage.

Legs:
Mournful Destroyer – Dark Curse curses the ground, dealing damage over time.

Primary Weapon:
Desolator – Animated Golem summons a lava golem that burns nearby enemies.
Off Hand – Battle Pass Rank 10 gives you several off-hand Legendaries. We recommend going for Baleful Trinity – Spirit Fire bounces off an additional target but with a 30% reduced damage after the first target.

Focus
Focus on damage (tourmaline, red gem) and armor penetration (sapphire, blue gem).

Legendary gems
Unless you invest large sums of real money, you won’t get many chances to choose your legendary gems or optimize them during the leveling phase. Use what you find in each moment.

General Necromancer Tips
We can say that the Necromancer is one of the most versatile classes in Diablo Immortal for having good area damage and also against single targets. He’s a mage that does a lot of damage early on, has a wide variety of builds, and offers party benefits. The problem is that he doesn’t have as much mobility, doesn’t have as much range, and relies on corpses to do a lot of damage. Switching builds are also not so ideal.

How to level up as a Necromancer?
The tip is valid for any Diablo Immortal class: do the story missions until you get to a point where you need to fulfill some requirements to progress. Generally, this requirement is about having reached a certain level, so we recommend completing Battle Pass missions, which offer a lot of experience. This would be the fastest way to level up, but it’s not necessarily the most interesting.

If you’re looking for a more fluid experience, we recommend sticking with the story quests and embarking on optional activities whenever they arise, which include dungeons and lairs. That way, the chance of you getting to crash at a certain point is lower, and the game flow becomes more natural.
