Build of the Week: Seven-Aura Necromancer

"This season we're focusing on explaining only the core concepts of the build, especially builds that are new-player friendly"

>6 Link sword with 4 blue 2 green sockets

Because that is something new players won't specifically need to have pointed out to them is going to cost an average of ~1100 chromatic orbs.

Seriously. It's like you guys have never played your own game.

Build looks awesome just for the visual effects. One note though at 2:30 it says Mind over Matter shifts the damage to Energy Shield, it actually shifts it to Mana. But with all Mana reserved does it really have any affect?


She shouldn't have, but she chose to skip a step there. It shifts it over to Energy Shield because the Eldritch Battery keystone makes your ES protect your mana pool. The 30% of damage that is now going to mana first hits the ES. Note, however, that chaos damage still bypasses ES and so any chaos damage will still go directly to mana which, since he hardly has any mana, means it really goes all onto your life.


Taking Mind Over Matter in this build is a waste of skill point, if not outright bad for the build. All mana is reserved for auras, so there is no mana left to take a hit. In addition, the low 866 Energy Shield being used for casting via Eldritch Battery will be instantly gone with any significant hit (a small hit did this to the character at around 1:14 into the video, and it was a small hit). And as it's Energy Shield and not Mana you cannot use a flask to get your casting ability back. Better hope a movement flask and your existing army is enough to escape and recharge/regen.

Anyhow, bottom line, all damage taken will go to life regardless, and when you get hit you won't be able to use your skills. If you are going to do this build, you will be better off not taking Mind Over Matter, unless you plan on getting way more than 866 Energy Shield.

Not to mention all the items in the video are most likely going to sky rocket in price now.
Unconventional? Do these guys even play their own game.

"Pentacurse / quad aura occultist" was unconventinal.
"2-Hander retch viperstrike" was unconventional.

"Necromancer with 7 auras"?
Among the first 3 builds people who play summoners will try out.
Get real.
Not beginner friendly but after all nice build.

Its like tease of the week. "See how we can! You will not! :D"

Seriously. GGG reserved crafting for themselves only. So this build have crafted items to work. Look at those rings on build huh! We playerplebs have to live with gambling. I wonder is it intentionally programmers calls chancing as crafting to misslead, or they actually think so? That crafting is have to look like this? Really?

And thats why good rolled items costs rediculously high and extremely rare. Much more rare than rarest uniques. Its not for the game. You have to gamble that items to have best stats, and you know what rate is it. 1 chance from billions you get item stats what you needed. This is serious issue.

We have no crafting at all here.

6L sword currently at ~500 chaos orbs. About what you have after defeating Merveil.

Other than that: nice build. Swapping a few gems will almost double the DPS to about 52k per skeleton mage, nice (Path of Builder is your friend). Also notice that this is yet another life build, as even with summoners nothing else works.
