  • Legendary Gems

    • Blood-Soaked Jade
    • Zwenson's Haunting
    • Echoing Shade
    • Seeping Bile
    • Ca'arsen's Invigoration
    • Everlasting Torment

For Legendary gems, Zwenson's Haunting for AoE burndown, Echoing Shade for the mirrors (mirror bone spears will stack bleed hits, making it insanely efficient), Everlasting Torment as another DoT source, and the usual BSJ and Seeping Bile.

Sets run 4/6 Flagellant for continuous damage, and 2/6 whatever (I'm not in Hell IV, so it's harder to test). I put Shal'baas for the extra damage to the DoT from Bone Spear, but I think 6/6 Flagellant would work just as well.

Build Guide

Lots of numbers in every way possible. This build is based around constant, continuous damage. The main bread and butter of the build is Dark Curse and Bone Spear -- both providing substantial direct and DoT Damage. Bone Armor is used in this case to give a burst of damage through debuffing the enemies, and Corpse Lance comes more into play when fighting bosses.

I've been playing around with a poison Corpse Explosion variant, but the dot ticks are slow and don't stack with other corpses, which would be OP as hell, but still a detriment to the build with the goal being more ticks, not less.
