This build mainly revolves around using Army of the Dead as much as possible to swarm enemies. Command Skeletons is also used to boost your damage, give you damage reduction, and greatly reduce the cooldown of Army of the Dead.

Besides these two Skills, the core Skills of this build are:



The primary armor for this build is the Bones of Rathma set. You will need five pieces of it for the full effect (if you Cube the Royal Ring of Grandeur). Jesseth Arms is another essential set, as it will make Command Skeletons more effective and boost your damage. Bonds of C’Lena and Fate’s Vow will further enhance Army of the Dead. Funrary Pick, Krysbin’s Sentence, Squirt’s Necklace and Convention of Elements will all boost your damage further. The Captain Crimson’s Trimmings set will increase both damage and survivability.

Bane of the Trapped, Gogok of Swiftness, and Zei’s Stone of Vengeance are generally the best Legendary Gems for this build, all boosting your damage.
