[3.24] Popcorn SRS Necromancer

Intro & build description

This build is based on SRS, but with a twist. Instead of minions hitting to kill enemies, we send horde of skulls that are decaying and exploding on enemies thanks to Minion Instability keystone, leaving burning puddles of flame. If regular SRS seemed to be too boring, exploding the minions might be just it.

  • No unique requirements
  • Shines with levels/currency invested

Rare Bone Helm

Bone helm with high life and elemental resistances. If you get a well rolled helm with + 2 minion levels, you can swap raise zombie/golem setup into helm.

Rare body armour with life, elemental resistances and spell suppression.


Null and Void

Null and Void gloves with +2 minion level corruption or any rare gloves with life, elemental resistances and spell suppression.

Left Ring

Right Ring

Rare Ring

I would say amulet is mandatory as it allows minions to die from chaos damage to pop Minion Instability. Without Tavukai we would need to use infernal legion support to burn minions.


Replica Siegebreaker

An awesome belt to have in the build. It is not necessary for build to function, but burning ground on minion death is too hard to pass on.

Use any rare belt until you get Replica Siegebreaker.

1Hand Weapon

Pick a wand with minion damage, minion maximum life, minion critical strike chance and cast speed.


Rare Shield
