Summonmancer (Necromancer Build in Diablo 2 Resurrected)

The Summonmancer is one of the more popular and well-used Necromancer builds in Diablo 2 Resurrected. In this particular build, you will have to primarily rely on the summons to do all of your work. Here, the Necromancer will have more of a supervisory role, where he will act like a conductor. This means that this particular build does not result in the Necromancer being very involved in combat. The Summonmancer can be considered to be one of the most distractive of the builds in this list, and this is because you can have up to 20 minions taking damage at a time once you reach higher levels.

Now, let us check out the Equipment needed for the Summonmancer.


Helm Harlequin Crest Shako
Armor Enigma
Gloves Trang-Oul’s Claws
Belt Arachnid Mesh
Boots Marrowwalk or Sandstorm Trek
Shield Homunculus or Boneflame
Amulet Mara’s Kaleidoscope
Rings Stone of Jordan, Raven Frost, Bul-Kathos’ Wedding Band

Now that we know the equipment needed for this build, check out the Skill Points & Stat Points you will also need to create the Summonmancer. An important thing to remember is that the equipment requirements are more or less the same for all builds. To make things easier, we have mentioned them only once in this guide.

Skill Points

  • 1 Teeth
  • 20 Raise Skeletal Mage
  • 1 Dim Vision
  • 1 Decrepify

Stat Points

  • Vitality – You should just throw all of the balance points into Vitality.
  • Dexterity – Must be enough for Homunculus with a maximum block (193)

These were all the equipment, stat points, and skill points you need to build the Summonmancer for Necromancer in Diablo 2 Resurrected.


The Bonemancer can be considered to be completely opposite to the Summonmancer we just discussed a while ago. Unlike the Summonmancer, the Bonemancer ignores summons. Here, the focus is on bone spells. While this might not initially be a good build during the early stages of the game, you will witness its power ad the game progresses. This especially holds true during PvP environments. Additionally, the Bonemancer is also a very popular build among players of Diablo 2 Resurrected.

When creating this build, we advise you to get the White Rune Word. Once you get it, there are two different ways you can enchant it. They are:

  • With Splendor Shrunken Head – +3 Bone Spear, +3 Skeleton Mastery, and +1-3 Revie.
  • Without Splendor Shrunken Head – +3 Bone Spear, +1-3 Lower Resistance, +1-3 Decrepify.

Now, let us check out the Skill Points and Stat Points you need to successfully pull off this build.

Skill Points

  • 1 Pierce
  • 20 Bone Spear
  • 1 Amplify Damage
  • 1 Clay Golem
  • 1+ Revive (use more than 1 only if necessary)
  • 20 Bone Spirit
  • 1 Skeleton Mastery or Iron Golem
  • 20 Bone Wall
  • 1 Blood Golem or Summon Skeleton
  • 20 Teeth
  • 1 Iron Maiden
  • 20 Bone Prison
  • 1 Golem Mastery

Stat Points

  • Strength – Keep it at the base level (if possible)
  • Energy – Keep Energy at the base level.
  • Dexterity – You can choose to give a few points to Dexterity. This depends on if you find yourself taking a lot of melee damage.
  • Vitality – Just like in the Summonmancer, you should throw in almost all points into Vitality.

This was all you need to know about the Bonemancer build.


The Daggermancer is a Necromancer build that implements the use of poison skills in Diablo 2 Resurrected. The advantage of using the Daggermancer is the fact that it also has the ability to use physical damage wherever poison is not effective. This provides a great alternative if the poison does not work.

If you choose to go ahead with this build, we recommend you use gear that will help enhance your damage, resistance, and attack ratings. This is because of the fact that the Daggermancer is one of the most physical Necromancer builds in the game.

Now, let us check out the Skill Points and Stat Points you will need to create the Daggermancer.

Skill Points

  • 1 to 5 Corpse Explosion, Amplify Damage, Bone Walk, Decrepify, Bone Prison.
  • 1 to 10 Golem Mastery
  • 10 to 20 Golem (We recommend you use the Clay Golem)
  • 20 Poison Daggermancer
  • 1 (of each) Lower Resist, Life Tap, Terror, Bone Armor, Summon Resist, Iron Maiden, Weaken.
  • 20 Poison Explosion
  • 20 Poison Nova

Stat Points

  • Strength – Make sure to allot enough points to Strength to make sure you can wear your desired items.
  • Energy – You should dedicate enough points to Energy to use your skills effectively and efficiently.
  • Dexterity – Enough points to ensure a block chance of at least 75%.
  • Vitality – Throw in most of your stat points into Vitality.

This was all you need to know about the Daggermancer build.


The Novamancer build is quite similar to the Daggermancer. The difference between both of these builds in the game is the fact that the Novamancer only relies on poison damage, whereas the Daggermancer can also use physical damage as an alternative. This particular build implements the use of curses to effectively wipe out big groups of enemies. This Necromancer depends on a Clay Golem to distract its opponents. It makes for a great passive support build when compared to the others.

When your Clay Golem is busy distracting enemies, you should kill them with the Poison Nova and Lower Resist. Once there are many bodies on the floor, you should finish them off with Corpse Explosion. This is the best way to eliminate bosses in case you do not have skill-boosting gear. If you do have gear that boosts your skills, you can use the Bone Prison.

Now, let us check out the Skill Points and Stat Points needed for the Novamancer.

Skill Points

  • 1 of All Curses
  • 1+ Golem Mastery
  • 20 Poison Dagger
  • 1+ Summon Resist
  • 20 Poison Explosion
  • 1+ Clay Golem
  • 20 Corpse Explosion or 20 Bone Wall
  • 20 Bone Prison
  • Reach Lower Resist 16 with items.

Stat Points

  • Strength – Enough points for equipment.
  • Dexterity – Enough points for equipment.
  • Energy – 100 – 150 points
  • Vitality – Throw in most of your points in Vitality.

This was all you need to know about the Novamancer build.


The Explosionmancer is one of the more fun builds in Diablo 2 Resurrected. This particular build focuses on the Corpse Explosion skill. This skill deals a massive amount of damage across a wide range. Additionally, the Corpse Explosion is boosted with Amplify Damage. This helps you get more value when casting.

A pro tip when using this build is to not hire any mercenaries that deal cold damage to clear off any bodies. This is because the corpses actually make the build more effective.

Now, let us check out the Skill Points and Stat Points for this build.

Skill Points

  • 1 Bone Spear
  • 3 Summon Resist
  • 1 Bone Armor
  • 1 Teeth
  • 2 Fire Golem
  • 1 Clay Golem
  • 1 Blood Golem
  • 20 Corpse Explosion
  • 10 Bone Prison
  • 20 Bone Wall
  • 20 Amplify Damage

Stat Points

  • Strength – Get enough points for equipment. You should try to get a max of 35 – 40.
  • Dexterity – Keep it to the base level if possible.
  • Energy – 150 – 200 points
  • Vitality – Throw in nearly all of your points into Vitality.

This was all you need to know about the Explosionmancer build.
