Try and get as much attack speed/ cool down/ and resource cost reduction as possible. Same basic build as other znecs out there but some small changes to optimize the Rathmas damage output. Thanks to all the previous builds for znecs out there.

Advantages of this build(as with all other znec builds incorporating brittle touch) is that the Rathma necro can go a bit more defensive and High Cool down. Znecros can stack Crit Chance on the mobs manually (so the Rathma necro can go low CC and opt for more cool down/defense). The attack speed will help you hit Higher breakpoints on your corpse lance to stack cc on each mob. You will gain movement speed from the lost time off hand while also slowing the mobs continually(procs the Rathmas Bane of the trapped gem). For all the above reason you will not need to use iceblink and while using Invigorating gemstone for healing and 100% immunity to crowd control effects allowing you to have better cool down along with being able to take more damage due to the healing bonus. Invigorating gemstone and Lost time are the main differences in this build compared to the other Znec builds.

High attack speed and cool down are required to keep LOTD up. Aim for the 2.01 as break point(pre bone spear/gogok stacks) to be most efficient. Cool down should be around 66%. Make sure all targeted mobs by Rathma Necro are fully stacked on cc from corpse lance. Found that at this attack speed you and 75% CC per second to manually targeted elite/monster. Make sure you spread that corpse lance love around.

Bone spear and Command skeletons will proc zodiac so keep them going as much as possible.


Pylons- found it best for znec to wear nems in all situations to gain the most benefit from amulet proc. Wait till LOTD is up and cool down is ready to reapply LOTD. Hit pylon then hit LOTD to proc amulet for strongarm bonus. If you hit pylon while LOTD is active you have to wait for next cycle to get the knock up bonus and can lose the 300% bonus due to immunity to the second LOTD freeze effect.

Transitions from groups or floors. Always try and reset your cool down before moving to next floor or groups even if that means to stay and extra 2-3 seconds on trash. Once in transition to new group you should wait to apply LOTD when density or elites are going to be targeted. Nothing worse then making a transition into density and having to wait for you LOTD to be ready again.

With 2 Rathma necros you can switch the Frailty curse to blood rush for better movement as long as one of the Rathma necros uses frailty.

Build Guide

Will be editing/updating more soon with better explanations of everything and the break down of the methods. You can see in the video where I manually target with corpse lance when needed also try and position your self between the mobs and the Rat necro to absorb incoming damage as much as possible and to help gather globes as needed. Keep bone spear and command skeletons attacks going as much as possible to reset cool down via zodiac procs.
