Gameplay is straightforward, summon  skulls and watch them destroy everything in your path.

Positioning is the key with this build, you should never stand in 1 place. Summon couple of skulls, move forward or closer to next pack of monsters, summon couple more etc. You don’t want to be stationary while playing SRS necromancer.

About prime

Prime is knowledgeable in everything builds related. Mostly focuses on writing build guides and tutorials on how to play with certain skills.


  1. you are still suggesting a staff? Bows, though pricey, are a far better option. Cheap and easy to score 90+ life and resists on the quiver and cast speed is not as important post 2.5.

    • It’s preference really, I would suggest starting with staff since they are easy to craft, and upgrading to bow when you can.

  2. what about jewel slots ?

  3. No Sidhenbreath?

    • It’s not carved in stone, Sidherbreath is a good option, just have to make sure resists, attributes and survivability is covered.

  4. I see you’re using haste, but you don’t take enough dex notes for it. So I need a ring or neck with + dex to get even lvl 1 haste?

  5. what flasks are good for this build?

  6. why so much life?

    • If you have damage to kill monsters quickly, always get as much life as possible, you will feel why you need it in Tier 15 maps.

  7. I have an empower level 4. What will be my 6 link of gems now? Which one do I change?

  8. Could you make a full passive skill tree? I am level 86 atm and wonder where the rest of my points should go

  9. just an FYI, you have flesh offering showing as green and its a blue socket… dont want to mess up new people =)

  10. What jewels do you reccomend for this?

  11. what jewels do you run?
