Trag'Oul Lancer The Best Necromancer Build - July 2017

Trag'Oul Lancer The Best Necromancer Build - July 2017

Find out the best Necromancer build post Inariu's Set Nerfs! July 18 2017

Trag'Oul's Blood Lancer
GR110+ viable

As you might be aware, Inarius Necromancers (view build details) were faced with an immense nerf after the recent hotfixes. The proc coefficiency on Bone Armor was drastically lowered (basically the ratio at which Miranae would deal its' damage), and Inarius set, despite still being fun, viable, and easy to play is far from being the Top Necromancer build. One would wonder, how did that "fix" the Necromancer class, if soon after the nerfs they are hitting even higher GR records using yet another Corpse Lance build.  This time we would like to present the Trag'Oul Blood Lancer build, which apparently is the most robust build in the entire Diablo 3 game.

Trag'Oul Set

Trag'Oul's Set

Trag'Oul Set gives you the following bonuses:

  1. (2/6) Blood Rush gains the effect of every rune.
  2. (4/6) While at full Life, your healing from skills is added to your maximum Life for 45 seconds, up to 100% more.
  3. (6/6) Your Life-spending abilities deal 3300% increased damage but cost twice as much Life. Your healing from skills is increased by 100%.

This build is based on the incredible damage boost to all abilities that cost your life. The extra health and healing will also help you stay alive while dealing damage. The set is somewhat similar to Inarius Set, as it increases the damage of many different spells and abilities, allowing players to choose the playstyle they find interesting.

We will be focusing on the Blood Lance build, which has the highest damage potential, allowing players to clear the highest Solo Greater Rifts compared to all other character classes.

Odealo is a trading platform for players of MMO games. It is an open marketplace for Item Farming, Power Leveling and Boosting services in Diablo 3.


The core DPS ability of this build is obviously the Blood Lance. It is increased by 3300% from the six pieces set bonus, and additionally by Krybin's Sentence, Trag'Ouls Corroded Fang and Reilena's Shadowhook. With Trag'Oul's Set we will be using a one-handed scythe and a Phylactery. This will give you additional maximum essence from the off-hand slot, as well as increased attack speed (compared to the two-handed version) allowing you to deal much more damage while in the Land of the Dead.



This build's toughness is based on high life pool and very efficient healing from Trag'Oul's Set bonuses. Also, extra damage reductions will be added from Dayntee's Binding belt (you have to remember to apply the Decrepify curse) and Unity ring (solo only). It's also essential to find a proper balance between consuming corpses with Devour ability and keeping them for DPS purposes.

After shutting down Auction House trading is no longer possible in Diablo 3. Items can only be traded with party members within 2-hour time frame. This significantly increased popularity of Item Farming, Boosting and Greater Rift carry services in Diablo 3. All of which can be found on Odealo marketplace.

Like the other two Cube items, this is another damage bonus.
Legendary Gems

Esoteric Alteration
Grants extra damage reduction, mainly while on low health (which is a rather often occurrence when using the Trag'Oul's Set)

Bane of the Stricken
Great DPS gem. This gives you the highest damage bonus vs. high greater rifts bosses of all the other gems (a must have if you are aiming for the Leaderboards)

Bane of the Trapped
The best DPS gem in Diablo 3. Its' aura will also help you a lot vs. non-cursed enemies. Remember Krysbin's Ring?
Possible replacements
Several items could be replaced. Its a choice between maximizing your DPS or boosting the Toughness
Aquila Cuirass - could replace the Corpse Whisper Shoulders in Kanai Cube for extra damage reduction
Unity - additional damage reduction for Solo play

Grants extra mobility, armor, moderate healing and additional corpses
Amazing damage scaling ability. Use on hard elites and bosses. Will not only duplicate your secondary skills (doubling the number of Corse Lances) but also increase your maximum Essence by another 100%. This even further increases your damage output when using Reilena's Shadowhook
Required for the Dayntee's Bindings belt to work. Will also grant the additional cooldown reduction from Borrowed Time rune, and the extra damage from the Spreading Malediction passive
Your main DPS ability. Require corpses to cast
Used to clear elites and bosses. Will allow you to spam Corse Lance and Devour simultaneously. The extra stun will also save your life numerous times
We are not summoning any pets when using this builds. This makes this passive one of the best defensive option
Amazing cooldown reduction for Land of the Dead. Also helps refresh Blood Rush for better mobility
A must-have for any build using Reilena's Shadowhook. Gives incredible damage boost
Another great DPS passive

In general, there is no item trading in Diablo 3. However, loot found while playing in a party can be given to other members within a 2-hour time frame. This allowed Legendary and Set gear to be offered by boosters in the form of Multiboxing and Boosting services - all of which can be found on the Odealo marketplace.


We are open to suggestions, mainly on how to make this build more casual friendly - after all, it's neither fast or effective on lower difficulties. If you also have any requests for different builds feel free to leave a comment below.
