Diablo 3 Legacy of Dreams Poison Scythe Necromancer Build

This build is based on the Legacy of Dreams power with outset bonuses equipped. Every legendary item equipped increases your damage and reduces damage taken. Therefore some items can be replaced depending on your preference. It is worth clarifying that in the helmet (Andariel’s Visage), the priority is damage boosting stats, so there will not be a gem slot there. Intelligence will be the most important and basic stat on items for both Offense and Defense.
