Diablo 4 Best Necromancer Endgame Builds: Bone Spear

One of the Diablo 4 best Necromancer endgame builds is the Bone Spear build, which can be used once players have finished the main story. We decided to give you some advice on the Diablo 4 best Necromancer leveling build and are now going to do the same for the best endgame builds. Since there are so many and the perfect one depends on your playing style, we will go into great depth about each of them in separate articles. In this article, let's speak about the Bone Spear Necromancer build for Diablo 4 after examining the Blight Shadowmancer build.

Diablo 4 Bone Spear Necromancer build explained

The Bone Spear Necromancer build is one of the best builds to use in the endgame and for leveling up. This is due to using the Bone Spear skill as the main one which allows you to land critical hits, in combination with many bodies generated. Also, by making use of the Corpse Explosion ability, this build is able to repurchase Essence, making the Diablo 4 Bone Spear Necromancer build a very reliable build. Furthermore, the important thing to know is that the build is supported thanks to the combined use of the Blighted Corpse Explosion skill which generates double damage, and the Hewed Flesh skill which, instead, allows you to generate a large amount of bodies.

As it will be clear by now, one of the most important things in building a build is to pay particular attention to skills. In Diablo 4 there are so many skills that can be assigned to a class, so it is for this reason that you must carefully choose the ones that best suit the build you intend to build. For the Bone Spear build, we recommend making use of the following skills:

  • Bone Splinters Level 1
  • Enhanced Bone Splinters
  • Bone Spear Level 5
  • Enhanced Bone Spear
  • Paranormal Bone Spear
  • Hewed Flesh Level 3
  • Unliving Energy Level 3
  • Imperfectly Balanced Level 3
  • Corpse Explosion
  • Blood Mist
  • Decrepify
  • Enhanced Decrepify
  • Abhorrent Decrepify
  • Amplify Damage Level 3
  • Death’s Reach Level 3
  • Death’s Embrace Level 3
  • Corpse Tendrils
  • Enhanced Corpse Tendrils
  • Serration Level 3
  • Compound Fracture Level 3
  • Evulsion Level 3
  • Rapid Ossification Level 3
  • Inspiring Leader Level 3
  • Stand Alone Level 3
  • Memento Mori Level 3
  • Bone Storm
  • Prime Bone Storm
  • Supreme Bone Storm
  • Ossified Essence

The ones listed above are the main skills that you absolutely must unlock in order for your Bone Spear Necromancer build to be effective and efficient, but there are others that we recommend unlocking anyway:

  • Death’s Embrace Level 3
  • Corpse Tendrils Level 5
  • Fueled by Death Level 3

The Paragon advancement system for the Bone Spear build becomes accessible once your character reaches level 50, allowing you access to a number of skills. In terms of stats like Damage, Intelligence, Resistance, and Life, we propose that you give Normal and Magic Nodes preference. As you level up, the Ghyphs' range increases. As a result, if you can't meet the requirements, we advise against allocating more nodes. In contrast, if you don't have the appropriate Glyph, you can equip any Glyph you choose until you do.

For the Starter Board, we will travel along the right side, grabbing three Rare nodes, the socket slot, and all of the Magic nodes in order to obtain the Amplify Glyph. Depending on the level of your Glyph, you should if you are able to gather enough Intelligence in the surrounding area. The Bone Graft board needs to be the second board. As we push to the top left corner and move into the socket slot, we rush that node at the beginning of the route, picking up both Rare and Magic nodes. In this position, the Exploit Glyph should be placed, and further Dexterity nodes should only be picked up if the Glyph level has sufficient nodes nearby. The first Glyph you should level up is this one.

The Scent of Death is the third board we have. Prior to picking up all of the Rare and Magic nodes and completing the pathing with the Legendary node, we will rush the socket slot. The Corporeal Glyph will be the Glyph we use in this instance. Similar to prior boards, we won't make a special effort to acquire additional characteristics that enable the bonus modifier unless we really have to, depending on the Glyph level.

A fourth board is called Flesh-Eater. The socket where the Sacrificial Glyph will be inserted will be the first thing we take up. The same process as before should be followed here: depending on the level of the Glyph, only take the extra surrounding qualities if necessary and practical. Because we want to finish our last board first, we actually bypass the Legendary node and go quickly toward the remaining Rare and Magic nodes on the left. We also skip the upper right nodes.

Bloodbath is the name of the last board. We will quickly grab the socket and insert the Essence Glyph because our main purpose in being here is to take the socket. Without a doubt, if the Glyph level permits it, we are picking up the local Dexterity. After finishing this board, we'll go back and finish the remaining Rare and Magic nodes on our fourth board. After this, you are either done or have extra characteristics to gather nearby your Glyphs as they level up.

As far as how to play and make use of this Diablo 4 Bone Spear Necromancer build, the focus is on being able to consistently deal damage, even if your Essence gauge isn't full. Having the ability to put enemies into a Vulnerable state and spawn many Corpses, you can stay at a distance and hit enemies with the Bone Spear ability. When you no longer have enough Essence, you just have to use the Corpse Explosion ability which allows you to inflict large amounts of damage while regenerating your Essence bar to be able to resume hitting enemies with Bone Spear.

We advise you to stay as far away from enemies as possible and this is also possible thanks to the use of the Blood Mist skill. Since you will have to face many enemies during your adventure, a wise choice is to fully upgrade the Corpse Trendils ability which allows you to control the damage that has been inflicted on you by enemies. Furthermore, the more you level up and enter the heart of the endgame, the Bone Spear build will provide you with Legendary Aspects that will help you maximize the damage inflicted on enemies.

A higher overall damage output from your weapon should be your top priority because it is superior in your Bone Spear build. Keep in mind that if you find a 1-handed weapon with a greater item power, it can perform better than a 2-handed weapon if used with an offhand or even a shield because shields scale your main-hand weapon by 80%. The stats to watch out for are as follows:

  • 2H Sword
    • + Critical Strike Damage
    • + Critical Strike Damage with Bone skills
    • + Vulnerable Damage
  • Helm
    • + Maximum Essence
  • Chest
    • + Damage Reduction, DR from Close, Distant or Burning Enemies
  • Gloves
    • + Lucky Hit: Up to 5% Chance to restore primary resource
    • + Critical Strike Chance
    • + Lucky Hit Chance
  • Pants
    • + Damage Reduction, DR from Close, Distant or Burning Enemies
  • Boots
    • + Movement Speed
    • + Movement Speed for X seconds after killing an elite
    • + Essence cost reduction
  • Amulet
    • + Movement Speed
    • + Essence Cost reduction
  • Ring
    • + Critical Strike Chance
    • + Critical Strike Damage
    • + Lucky Hit

    • Accelerating Aspect (Critical Strikes with Core Skills increase your Attack Speed by 15-25% for 3 seconds)

In order to conclude this guide, we will provide you with some suggestions on gems, elixirs, and potions that go well with the Bone Spear build. We advise you to visit the alchemist frequently in order to increase both the strength and shelf life of both elixirs and potions. We strongly advise you to rely on elixirs that increase your stats and grant you more experience points for 30 minutes, as well as the Weak Assault elixir, which increases your Attack Speed by 7%. But we suggest that you rely on the following gems for your Necromancer:

  • Weapon: Emerald for + Increased critical strike damage to Vulnerable enemies
  • Armor: Ruby for + Maximum Life
  • Jewelry: Skull to increase our armor
