The Clay Golem is the simplest form of this complex art, creating a servant directly from the earth to serve the Necromancer. The intense drain this places on the psyche of the caster only allows him to maintain a single Golem of any type at a time.
Clay Golem produces a mysterious being from the earth itself that follows the Necromancer and fights his enemies. The Golem approaches monsters and strikes them in close combat while withstanding their attacks. Its remarkably high life and endurant nature makes it excel at this last purpose, by keeping the attention of monsters on itself, thus protecting its master.
Although its attacks deal insignificant damage later in the game, they greatly slow opponents including Act Bossesfurther preventing them from harming to the Necromancer. In these ways, Clay Golems can act as powerful tanks, provided the Necromancer has other means of dealing damage. Investing more points into Clay Golem slightly increases their damage and attack, but particularly their life and ability to slow opponents.
Like Skeletons, a Clay Golem provides excellent crowd control and exceeds at pacifying enemies with its slow, particularly when aided with Decrepify and a source of cold damage. An enemy slowed by all these sources can barely move, which greatly reduces its ability to cause damage. The effect is particularly visible against Act Bosses, whose threat drops remarkably when slowed. Clay Golems recover quickly and can sustain great amounts of damage before being destroyed.
Even when destroyed, they can be easily replaced. Clay Golems have three major drawbacks.
First, they cause very little damage on their own. Poison and Bone Spells and Skeletons are all excellent sources of damage that can supplement the distraction a Clay Golem offers.
Secondly, in total, only one Golem can be in service at any time. As such, they cannot be made in numbers and will also compete with Blood GolemsIron Golemsand Fire Golems for skill points although investing in more than one Golem grants mutual benefits through synergies. Finally, while Clay Golems have the most life, other Golems may be more useful, depending on the Necromancer's skill set.
Golem Mastery increases the speed and life of all Golems. Clay Golems particularly benefit from the bonus life they receive from this skill, though the speed bonus is usually not very necessary, as Golems keep up decently well when following their master. Golem Mastery also grants a small bonus to all Golems' attack rating. This wiki. This wiki All wikis.He utilizes his curses to weaken his enemies and control the battlefield. Also, he can doom his opponents to a slow death through poison and even make their bodies explode.
Thus, its summoning capabilities are limited. The Bonemancer is much more effective at higher levels and in PvP fights.
He uses Poison Nova in combination with some other poison skills, curses, and a few summoning skills. Although Poison Nova is the primary attack of the build, it uses Poison dagger as a secondary attack. Explosionmancer : Also known as Explomancer, the build relies on Corpse Explosion spell.
Hybridmancer : It combines the spells of the Bonemancer along with the abilities of the Summonmancer in order to outnumber his enemies.
The result is a well-performing character across all difficulties and levels. Novamancer : This type of Necromancer takes advantage of the Lower Resist and Poison Nova skills to slay large groups of enemies. In addition, it relies on his summons such as Golems to distract its enemies and avoid taking damage.
This kind of Necromancer is able to summon numerous minions to overwhelm and damage his opponents.
Its role is to support his minions, casting curses on their enemies. Further, the Summonmancer can resurrect the fallen monsters to fight by his side or even to make their bodies explode for additional damage. Ultimancer : This build can wipe out the largest groups of monsters in the least amount of time in Hell difficulty.
He uses the Attract and Amplify Damage to trick his enemies and force them to attack each other. This way, the Ultimancer has enough time to use Corpse Explosion until all nearby monsters are dead within seconds. However, this build requires some practice.
The player has to act fast and learn well how to perform the specific combo. Sorceress Barbarian vs. Amazon Paladin vs. Necromancer Builds. December 22, Latest Articles. Our Top 3 favourite Diablo 2 Cosplays so far November 12, Necromancer is one of the fun and safest build in the Diablo 2, especially if you are going for summoner route.
It is because your summoned minions will fight or tank the incoming damage from the monsters for you. The chances for you to get hit by the monsters are almost nil. No matter what difficulty Normal, Nightmare, and Hell you are playing, the summoner build will breeze through the whole game with little difficulty, although it takes time and patience to do so. Also, the summoner does not rely heavily on the uber equipment to beat the game.
You can still complete the game with poor equipments, although the Uber equipments will increase your killing speed tremendously. As a necro summoner, the main skill that you need to learn and max it as soon as possible is Raise Skeleton. Here are the lists of skills that you need to learn or max as summoner. So, why Lv20 Corpse Explosion? Well, it is because this skill is invaluable when it reaches a certain level.
A high-level corpse explosion can clear the whole enemies on the screen in no time. After all, it is not like you have other potential skill that worth to max once your maxed your Raise Skeleton and Skeleton Mastery.
As for the Dim Vision, this skill is a lifesaver, especially in the higher difficulty. It basically can shut down all the monsters from rushing toward you in the game. Extremely useful if you are fighting against a ranged monster or spell caster or any monster that can attack you from off-screen.
Revive is a good additional skill to learn. It will revive any monsters that you had slain to fight for you. The revived monsters have more HP and do more damage than your skeleton, especially if you maxed the Skeleton Mastery skill.
It is because these revived monsters have terrible AI script and often get lost. For the Raise Skeleton Mage skill, you may want to learn it once you completed your core skills. Skeleton mages are weak in the higher difficulty, but it can be a decent support in term of damage output for your armies.
So, if you plan to learn Bone Spear or Spirit for additional damage for your armies, think it again. More HP, more survivability Energy: 25 Leave it at base. As for the character stat, never ever invest any stat point into the Energy stat.
Arqade is a question and answer site for passionate videogamers on all platforms. It only takes a minute to sign up. The class I play most commonly in Diablo 2 is the Necromancer. I've always run the same build belowbut now I want to start trying some alternative builds to mix it up a bit and add some extra interest to my next playthrough. I noticed however that all the golems as well as Golem Mastery are quite pathetic.
This makes me wonder. Besides being a prerequisite for Summon Resist, are any of the Golems actually useful? If so, which one? Any advice around using primarily a Golem summon and then a combination of other skills bone and curses is also helpful. The Clay Golem is useful, as it slows down the attacker which allows you to interrupt their abilities especially useful against bosses. You mentioned this yourself. All it takes is one point. Resummoning is cheap, so there is no need to buff its health.
The cheap resummoning is also nice against bosses, as it allows you to summon an endless stream of new targets. Just buy enough mana potions beforehand. Higher golems are not worth it. They die too quickly against bosses and don't do enough damage against normal mobs. However, revived monsters are also useful in some cases. And 1 point in all prerequisites, of course I believe this includes some of the golems.
I'm very surprised no one has talked about the hidden features of Iron Golem. It won't disappear when you log out,unlike the other golems.
The Iron Golem even becomes ethereal if you use an ethereal item to create it. Stacking Summon Resist helps buff your skellies too and Golem Mastery can help to keep your golem alive against bosses and mobs later on in the game at the higher difficulties. If you can't afford a good runeword, any item with Crushing Blow can help a lot especially against the Act bosses. You can't kill Diablo on Hell difficulty in hardcore without a Clay Golem, this will be a pain in butt on killing Duriel too, and on Baal he will never have time to summon Image or cast spell if you have clay Golem on your side.
If you want to judge clay Golem vs any other, I have to say Clay Golem is the cheapest and easiest way you can use Golem.Forums New posts Search forums. What's new New posts New media New media comments.
Just so I can find items for my future, more gear dependant chars. So I thought about making a pure fire golem build since I've never seen anyone use that kind of build before, and it just seems like fun.
Obviously I'll have trouble in hell because of all the fire immunes, but is it a good build before that? Also, fire golem has no less than 5 synergies, so maxing all synergies isn't an option. Which skill setup would be best for making a good golem?I needed an app to take care of all returns and found aftership return center offered FREE of charge with great features.
