Yea jewels with ar, ar mo's and good rolls on charms with ar/dex.

Can also try using mal runes instead of p diamonds to also boost dex a bit.

(are you doing 1 pt in dex per level btw)

For leveling and farming go with traditional 2h scythe strength setup.
10 points in angel of death, put points in parasite, max continuity, max deathward, onminous vigor, deathpact, onslaught, rathmas chosen, mold the flesh, embalming.
1 Point in reaper, melee mastery, talon's hold, deathlord
Jump with angel of death every 5 seconds to use reaper.
For later bossing 125+ switch to dexterity dagger build. Use carnage.

Thank you all for the feedback. In the old patches I always loved to play with melee necro, but in late game in the 2-3 previous patches, I struggled a bit. I'll will give a try. I also loved xbow spec. It is also viable?
