4l immortal call with blood magic, increased duration, second wind.

Gloves

3l Dash with second wind, blood magic.

Unlinked Vaal RF

Helm

4L Desecrate with blood magic, spell echo, spell cascade.

1H

Desecrate, Bone offering, Wave of conviction

1H

Conductivity, Blade fall linked to spell cascade

Boots

I don't use WoC for my setup because I'm slot starved but if you're able to stuff more things into your triggers WoC gives exposure (-25% res) and bladefall grants unnverve (10% increased spell damage taken by enemies).

There's a passive called spiritual aid that converts all minion % damage to your damage.


So you effectively get the 30% minion damage from Necromancer ascendency as well as the damage % from all the minion damage nodes on the passive tree.

Thx OP certainly trying this out.

Quick question though, what are the "core notes" so we can farm red maps comfortably at around lv 80?

Or in other words, what're the notes we should delay taking?
(My own take are those staff block notes)
is there any possibility to play with same setup(including same defences) and using some other spell?

You should delay taking the minion damage nodes (left side of tree). It's 5 nodes total meaning you can get the rest of the tree by level 88.

And before that, the windancer node and its branch (5 nodes total) meaning you can get the rest by level 83.

Yep! I've tried this build with Bladefall and Bladeblast and it was pretty good clear as well.

I've actually transitioned to cremation for bossing and am now using VD for map clear.

yesterday i tried this with ark and ball lightning-looks solid with same tree.
as for VD, i got a trigger wand with desecrate/spell echo/spell cascade. thinking about second wand with bone offering/curse. the idea is when you use any skill (immortal call in my case on cd) we trigger desecrate. it has a small cooldown, but still 10 times more comfortable than manual casting. so u need only manual vd. we need more tests with offensive skills. take a def mechanism as basic and develop a build in offensive part.
also we can consider arcane cloak to be suitable.

Can you explain why those blood magic skill gems are for? Maybe I'm standing too close to a tree to see the forest :(
