As Diablo 4 Season 3 approaches, Necromancer enthusiasts are eager to know which build will reign supreme. The introduction of the Companion brings new possibilities, enhancing existing builds and creating potential for dominance. Let’s delve into the Necromancer tier list for Season 3 and explore the strengths and weaknesses of each build.
Pure Summoner – D Tier:
Unfortunately, the Pure Summoner remains at the bottom tier. Despite a slight improvement in the usefulness of the Golem for leveling, it falls short in endgame scenarios. The Golem’s bonus to Critical Strike damage isn’t compelling enough to make this build competitive. Therefore, many players will increase the damage by buying Diablo 4 items.
Blood Lances – C Tier:
While the Blood Lances build has formidable damage output, it grapples with clunkiness in resource production. The new unique Diablo 4 item, Mutilator Plate, attempts to address this issue, but the overall experience is still lacking. The Companion’s resource support may boost this build, potentially elevating it to a higher tier.
Corpse Explosion – B Tier:
Corpse Explosion faces a setback with the Nerf to lucky hit chance, affecting the X’Fal’s Corroded Signet explosion build and Infinimist Necromancer. The challenge lies in the proof of Might drops in leaderboard dungeons, making time-consuming damage over time builds less favorable. However, further evaluation is needed with the upcoming season dynamics.
Bone Spirit – A Tier:
Bone Spirit makes a significant leap from its former F-tier status. With new aspects like Swelling Curse and Shattered Spirit, Bone Spirit gains substantial damage boosts. The interaction with Pain Gorger Gauntlets and the potential Bone Spirit and basic skill synergy make this build a strong contender. Expect Bone Spirit to shine in boss encounters.
Blood Surge and Bone Spear – S Tier:
Blood Surge and Bone Spear emerge as the top-tier contenders. Despite a minor nerf to Blood Surge, the overall strength of this build, coupled with the Companion’s support, makes it a force to be reckoned with. The synergy between the Undying Bow and Emperor’s version of Bone Spear promises overwhelming damage output. This build is poised to dominate both regular content and the leaderboard.
In conclusion, Necromancer enthusiasts have a diverse array of builds to explore in Diablo 4 Season 3. Whether you prefer the reliability of Blood Surge and Bone Spear or the newfound power of Bone Spirit, the Companion adds an extra layer of strategy to your Necromancer experience.
