Diablo 4: Best Basic Skill Introduction - Bone Splinters

On the last day of the Diablo 4 beta, I did what Quinn69 failed to do. I created this extremely viable one skill in Necromancer build. We’re talking no summons, no defensive skills, no cooldowns and nothing that spends your essence. It’s just Bone Splinters, the single best basic skill in the game.

Three Reasons

Here are the top 3 reasons you should play this build: 1. Simple 2. Easy 3. Hard to die.

If you’re a minimalist, then you don’t want clutter on your skill slots. This keeps it real clean. It’s a very relaxing and easy playstyle. What I mean is if you’re a toddler or playing on a controller, you will love this build and it’s hard to die. I genuinely don’t think this character can die.

Diablo 4 the amazing Armor

Just look at the Armor. It gets to over 3,000, which is ridiculous at level 25 considering the level 100 character Blizzard showed has about the same amount.

2nd Damage Source

Now I want to mention to you that there’s two sources of damage for this character: Bone Splinters and Thorns.

This is highly convenient as we can spend the boss fight at the end of a dungeon going through the loot we’re picked up along the way. This is very efficient and saves us seconds when we’re in town later. We actually don’t even need to use any skills at all and everything still dies. But when we start left clicking on top of that, we’re unstoppable.

To verify that the build is really simple. I invited a friend who has never played Diablo 4 to use the character Necro to complete a random dungeon. Although it was his first time playing, he got started very quickly. He easily mastered the character’s skills and killed many Demons. Even facing the boss, he said it was very easy, and even wanted to challenge a higher difficulty. In the process, he also gained a lot of Diablo 4 Gold and loot.

Build Secrets

Next up, let me explain the build secrets to this build.

The basic skill, Bone Splinters literally the first skill you get as they necro works like a shotgun. It fires three splinters and if your target is close enough, it gets hit by all of them and 30% of the time, it fires five splinters. Each having a 20% chance to make the enemies vulnerable and take more damage. Combine that with the three passives that boost Bone Skills. W’re talking 15% extra crit chance because we’re always at full Essence, 15% increased damage because we crit a lot and 18% increased critical strike damage.

On top of that, we have ridiculous Thorns, tankiness and other passive damage boosting abilities from the skill tree or gear and sacrificing our summons.

Let me show you the legendary items that can make a basic skill like Bone Splinters so busted. We deal with 47% extra damage and the attack faster since we stand. Still, we deal with 30% extra damage and we take 25% reduced damage. We get incredibly tanky from just these two items and deal even more damage when we’re up against an Elite or boss and since we crit all the time, we also run very fast.
