Diablo 4 Blood Necromancer Build: How To Build It?

Jun 09 ,2023 Author: D4gold

Here I explain how I built my Necromancer in Diablo 4. I’ve completed World Tier 2 and completed many side quests in just two days.

If you want to challenge Hardcore, then definitely follow this guide. I’ll let you know what’s changed in this build and what to look out for. We’ll start talking about skills, and I’ll save gear for last.

Diablo 4: The Best Blood Necromance Build


In Diablo 4, you can change your skill points at any time. So I will explain not only the different types of builds of Necromancer but also the different settings for these builds for different purposes. This is mainly useful in Hardcore.

Here, we’ll focus on my favorite Blood Necromancer build. We’ll start with a generic multipurpose skill set. This is a very tanky building, as we will have almost permanent fortifications. We’ll use all Potion Orbs we get to replenish them.

Diablo 4: Best Necromancer Skills

Basic Skills

Starting with our basic attack skill, Hemorrhage, we need to keep spending Diablo 4 Gold to get Fortify effect plugin. If you’re not playing on chief difficulty or Hardcore modes, or if you use one-handed weapons and shields. Maybe you’d prefer Fortify attack speed addon. But for me Fortification option is much better.

Core Skills

Now moving on to the core skills we built. We’ll take a Blood Lance and develop it into a Supernatural Blood Lance. Because the buff damage is much better compared to this build’s attack speed and Essence cost reduction.

Then we also learn Blood Surge and Supernatural Blood Surge add-ons to augment our Fortification. And keeping it increases damage by 20% while we are healthy.

Most of the time, I find that another option, Paranormal Blood Surge, is rarely triggered when you need to cast it. Because it takes 6 casts to activate Empower effect, which is very unusual for a mana cost. Because usually with 2 or 3 casts, you’ll kill all the small normal mobs around you. Lastly, is a multi-target skill, so you won’t be using it on elite mobs or bosses.

Passive Skill

Then we’ll learn two passive skills, Unliving Energy and Imperfectly Balanced, to increase our Essence and our damage. Although we will consume more Essence, it is really worth it. Because Essence has a lower cost and can greatly increase our damage when we deal with critical hits.

In the next set of skills, we will only need to learn level 1 Blood Mist. We can use it as a defensive skill if we need to run and heal, or if it caught us between mobs, or a dangerous and hard to dodge skill to avoid a boss.

Now we’ll learn Death’s Reach and Death’s Embrace to increase our damage again and increase our defense against enemies at close range. We’ll leave the curse to the other settings for this build.

Then we need to learn all the passive skills related to Blood skills. But we won’t be learning those passive abilities that heal our minions because it poorly built those or are more minion-focused.

Ultimate Skill

Surprisingly, our Ultimate skill is not a Blood skill. Even though we’re focusing on Blood build, I think its Bone Storm is much better than Blood Wave. It does much higher damage. It is not only against us but also against our Golem. So the damage is doubled, and the add-on increases Critical Strike chance by 20%.

Even though this is not a Critical Strike chance build, our gear add-on and Dexterity modifier can easily hit 30% Critical Strike chance. Dealing with Critical Strike on activation, as the duration is long enough to also use multiple abilities on activation.

At the same time, the skill does more damage at the end. But if that wasn’t enough, the add-on gives us 15% damage reduction, allowing us to deal with massive damage attacks. I think the total damage we can do due to this skill can be three times or more than Blood Wave. Especially if we do Critical Strike with Empowered skill.

Now we will learn the passive skill of Standalone. Even though just one minion gives us 16% damage reduction, two points of our Golem Mastery are enough. Or you can also try Boosting service here to help you quickly increase your level damage.

Finally, we’ll pick Rathma’s Vigor to increase our health by 10%. And give us an Empowered effect every 15 seconds during our next Blood skill.

In our Book of the Dead, we’re sacrificing Skeletal Warrior for 15% non-physical damage resistance. Because it’s not built based on Critical Strike rate damage, and we don’t do Shadow damage. Then we will also sacrifice Skeletal Mage to increase Empower effect by 40%, because this Bill is based on Empower.

Finally, we’ll use Blood Golem and add-ons to make the enemy take 15% of the damage we’ll take. Blood Necromancer’s second skill set focuses on buffing its tank and single-target damage. It’s great for Hardcore or really hard single target content. To do this, we just need to swap out Blood Surge ability for Curse Decrepify and invest a point in passive amplification.


Now let’s talk about gears. The key attribute I like to boost in this build is Intelligence.

Then I prioritize add-ons in the following order: skill ranks, Blood skill damage, Elemental resistances, Empower damage, reduces base skill cost and damage reduction.

Diablo 4: How To Get The Best Aspect For Your Build?

The Aspects I use are:

  • Aspect of Might
  • Blood Seeker’s Aspect
  • Aspect of Explosive Mist
  • Aspect of The Protector
  • Edgemaster’s Aspect
  • Aspect of the Expectant
  • Aspect of Disobedience

All in all, that’s all I have to say about the abilities and gear that Blood Necromancer build. What are your thoughts on Blood Necromancer? Hope it helps you.
