Once you reach level 70 and have chosen a Build for your Necromancer, you will want to start picking out the best weapons to complement it. Just like with the armor sets, the weapons are designed to enhance specific Skills from the Necromancer’s arsenal, which we will mention in the Best Weapons section of this guide. Note that while some of these weapons work best for a particular build when they are equipped, others should be Cubed (their effect stored via Kanai’s Cube).
- Necromancers will generally want to use a 1-handed weapon and an Off-Hand. The specific best weapons will be based on the build you choose.
- You will always want to use a Flawless Royal Emerald on your weapon socket for the extra Critical Hit Damage unless you are using a support build. In that case, you’ll want to use either a Flawless Royal Amethyst for survivability, or the Gem of Ease for extra EXP.

Necromancer Weapon Set
Jesseth Arms (2 Pieces)
- 2 set:
- When the target of your Command Skeletons dies, your skeletons are automatically commanded to attack a nearby target.

The set gives a damage boost, and makes it much easier to keep Command Skeletons activated on a target.
