===== 3.7 LEGION UPDATES ===== UPDATE #3: PoB is finally updated with most new gems' information and this build got BUFFED through the roof! Simply replace Haste with Pride Aura and War Banner with "Precision Aura" and the DPS with 1200 STR is around 3.6 MILLION vs Shaper/Elder. Not only that, but with over 10k EHP and a boatload of defensive layers, this build is currently insane! If you want to even further boost your zombies defenses without losing too much DPS, you can replace Maim*, the 6th gem in the Zombies setup with the buffed *Fortify Support gem. Here's… Read more »

I played this build in betrayal to lvl93 in HC and now playing it again. There are some minor changes i made.
1) As Endgame belt I used Cyclopean Coil instead of a rare one. It comes with 15% increased attributes, 100+ HP and Immunity to Ignite/Frozen
2) Especially in HC this build kinda suffers against chaos damage. I swapped the Haste Aura for Purity of Elements in combination with a Watcher's Eye that provides 50 Chaos Resistance while under this aura. This leaves you with an extra skill gem slot (no enlighten needed), more unreserved mana and more elemental resistances.

Currently following this guide, and in act 10 atm. Two things first, can't you just use one CWDT setup with the gems socketed in the order you want them to trigger? verse having two CWDT setups and lightning warp is strictly better than flame dash for this build, covers longer distances and triggers elemental equilibrium appropriately. Also best PoE guildes I have ever seen, truly a work of art man.

Really nice.
There's someone asking over on the GGG forums how you get Fortify, which shows on the Zombies @11:38, on them. Other than Vigilant Strike + The Vigil I see no way with the links you use; however, VS + The Vigil are not in the build guide.

I wasn't sure if I wanted to play this league since the last one left a bad taste in my mouth.

But your video and build is super awesome so I'm going to give it a try. 🙂

Hey man, just wanted to say thank you very much! Hard to find good detailed builds for PoE. I'm a noob at the game but having a blast and always wanted to try a necromancer. Your guide helped a whole bunch, and I have every piece of gear, aside from the chests and rings for around 120c. Very grateful for all your hard work!

Hello, any new tips or useful updates after a week into the league? How does this handle the new league monolith mechanics? Thanks for the guide!

You can't benefit from the resistances from commander of darkness while using generosity, because it makes the auras not effect you. Any solution to this?
