Diablo 3 Pestilence Master’s Shroud Corpse Lance Necromancer Build

This build is capable of clearing high-level Greater Rifts effortlessly, killing demons in a matter of seconds. All you need is a large number of corpses and Devour, which thanks to the Pestilence Master’s Shroud set will fire a Corpse Lance at a nearby enemy. The only downside is the dependence on skills with a large cooldown – Land of the Dead and Simulacrum. This means that you need to collect a fairly large group of monsters at the beginning, before using your entire arsenal of skills. Blood Rush will help you with this to quickly move around the locations. Command Skeletons will be a great buff that will increase your damage and restore some of your health.
