My take on the 2H melee necro. Found a shadowfang and this is by far the most fun build I have ever played.
You literally turn into veil king and smash things. I also have massive graveyard dmg, the veil king plague grasp is insane and the amount of
revives that I can get in a couple minutes is also crazy (¬30-50).

This build clears Duncraig like it's Den of Evil and is also quite a tank.
Too bad I only found a shadowfang so late in the season. Might try it again next season or just keep playing it non-ladder.


I got Unholy Death Knight vibes from your post, will try thanks for the input!

with this build? The flat damage seems really nice, time strike is decent and whirlpool seems like a nice quick DoT to add to the DPS.

haven't tried it but on paper it does look usable for whirlpool builds. it's probably overlooked because a 2h scythe at 500-550+ two handed damage with 6 open sockets for x6 Jah runes will provide more overall damage if you aren't just farming

Fair enough, after some quick testing it looks like

with 6 Jah, Reaper's is higher max dmg. That's with a 35% non-luckied Bonesplitter for Bartuc's. Reaper's MO'd to to hit 200% ED before Jah with EWD as well. Personally I'd take the min dmg but that's just me, not to mention the +4 SK on Bartuc's.

@OP Probably worth adding

to the item suggestion unless you see a big reason not to use it that I'm missing.
