If you’re looking to exclusively play PvE, then this Diablo Immortal Necromancer build is bound to be a winner for you, offering high damage in combination with a commanding defence. Although PvP is a big part of the Diablo Immortal experience for some, a lot of players will only be focused on the PvE side of things and there are few better classes than the Necromancer to take advantage of that. This class works exceptionally well as a Diablo Immortal Necromancer solo build too due to the friends you get to pull back from the afterlife. So, if you’re wanting to get your hands on our Diablo Immortal Necromancer best build guide, keep on reading below.

As mentioned before, a significant focus of this Diablo Immortal Necromancer best build is going to be focused on solo PvE players that want to power through the game’s challenging dungeons and bosses.

Therefore, there is going to be an emphasis on the summoning side of the Necromancer’s kit, which is bound to be the reason any player is drifting towards the class in closest communion with the dead anyway.

So, have a look at what we think are the best Necromancer skills in Diablo Immortal:

Skill Name Description Cooldown Level Requirement
Bone Spear Fire a spear that pierces through two additional enemies, dealing 50% less damage for each enemy hit   Level 34
Command Skeletons Passive effect of summoning a skeleton every eight seconds to a maximum of four which all deal damage. Send your skeletons to a specific location of your choosing, where their attack speed is increased by 80% for 4.5 seconds Passive/Eight Seconds Level One
Wraith Form Move at 150% speed whilst invulnerable for two seconds, whilst also being unable to attack 9.4 Seconds Level 15
Bone Spirits Fire a channelled barrage of bone spirits that deal constant damage to affected enemies 0.5 Seconds/Until energy is refilled Level 47
Command Golem Summon a Golem for 24 seconds which deals standard damage and stun enemies. You can also actively command its location and it will attract the attention of all nearby enemies 36 Seconds Level 50

What these skills give you is an insane amount of damage output that has very few quiet points, whilst also giving you several options for escape. The key part of this Diablo Immortal build is clearly the summons, with the skeleton champions and Golem not only dealing significant damage, but also drawing attention away from yourself.

This allows you to sit back and spam ranged combat with a mix of Bone Spear and Bone Spirits while all your foes are busy dealing with your reincarnations.


Lastly, Wraith Form gives you a last gasp escape if you’re really stuck in a sticky situation, but you can also use the active ability of Command Golem to pull enemies away from you if you need to heal or recharge.

The best Diablo Immortal gems for your Necromancer build further reiterate the importance of the summons. Most of these gems increase the effectiveness of your summon skills, and some other gems even add more summons to the field. 

Gem Name Base Effect Rank Three Effect
Freedom and Devotion Increase the duration of your summons by 8% Increase the damage of your summons by 0.75%
Follower’s Burden Increases your damage by 1% for every summon you have, for a maximum of 6% Decreases summon damage taken by 1.5%
Echoing Shade You have a 15% chance to summon a close of yourself for eight seconds with each attack Increases the max shadow clones to two at the same time
Zwenson’s Haunting Defeating an enemy summons a dark beast which deals 50% of your base damage plus 486 extra to all nearby enemies. Cannot occur more than once every six seconds 7% chance to summon a dragon after using a skill that stuns enemies
Howler’s Call 10% chance to summon a wolf with every primary attack that does 150% base damage with an extra 1458 damage The summoned wolf has a 12% chance for a three second stun

As you can see, all of these gems either bring another summon into the field briefly, or enhance the summons you already have. With these active and your skills combined, you will have a veritable army on your hands.
