Diablo 4 has launched Season 1 and with it, the chance to try out some new classes. With all the balance changes and nerfs since the game launched, Necromancer seems to be the most popular class. I started the new season with a new Necromancer character, using the famous Bone Spear build, and I’m pleased to say that it works beautifully. In this guide, we’ll cover everything that makes this build so popular and show you how to do it right.
The Most OP Bone Spear Necromancer Version – Diablo 4 Season 1
A wide player base finds the Bone Spear Necromancer build to be the most OP build in Diablo 4, as the most effective in Season 1. This is due to the fact that Necromancer is the best class for Diablo 4 Season of the Malignant because it avoided most of the pre-season nerfs that other classes have been hit with. As a result, we can still build the Necromancer around the Bone Spear ability, giving you a great build whether you’re doing speed runs, clearing Nightmare dungeons, or fighting Uber Lilith.

Endgame Gear for the Bone Spear Necromancer Build in Diablo 4 Season 1
The Bone Spear build for the Necromancer in Diablo 4 Season 1 will largely depend on the gear you have, especially late game when you hit level 50 with your character. A good build-oriented team will mean the difference between your two-shot build against the most powerful enemies or subpar performance in battle.
Bone Spear is an endgame Necromancer build that revolves around the Bone Spear ability, which gives a high crit chance and high damage output while making almost every enemy on screen vulnerable. The crucial part of this build is getting a Appearance of exposed meat, which will grant you almost unlimited Essence. If you don’t get it immediately, equip Penitent’s Greaves is a great alternative, along with a Aspect of Thresholdwhich you can obtain by completing the Champions Demise dungeon.

Book of the Dead version for the Necromancer version of Bone Spear in Diablo 4 Season 1
There are three types of minions available in the Necromancer’s Book of the Dead in Diablo 4 Season 1, but we’ll need to sacrifice all of them for their benefits to the Necromancer and maximize the build’s damage output.
- skeleton warrior: Sacrificing them gives us a huge damage buff for the build. The first sacrifice gives you an additional critical chance.
- skeleton wizard: Sacrificing your Skeletal Mages increases damage to enemies that are vulnerable.
- golem: Sacrificing Golem benefits you with increased critical damage for your abilities.
