The best stats for the Necromancer in Diabo II: Resurrected will depend heavily on your build. There are dozens of different ways to play any of the seven classes and many of these builds will be viable even at the games most challenging points.

The Necromancer has a unique playstyle compared to Diablo II's other classes. Most Necromancers will not do much of the fighting themselves and instead summon various allies or "pets" to help them and their allies in battle. This is broadly known as a Summoner Build. Players who dedicate their build to summoning will be able to spawn skeletons, mages and golems to do the heavy lifting for them.

Best Stats for the Necromancer Diablo II Resurrected

The Necromancer is one of the flimsier classes available in the game so it's typically recommended to dump a good amount of points into vitality after your strength has reached level 26. This will ensure players will survive attacks from an enemy who manages to break through your army of skeletons and golems. Golems can also aid the Necromancer by acting as damage sponges.

Necromancers should also invest heavily in their skeleton minions who will be doing a majority of the damage. Once the skeletons confirm the kill on an enemy the necromancer can use Corpse Explosion to deal high amounts of burst damage to other enemies in the area. Corpse Explosion is not a strong attack in the earlier parts of the game, but it does scale nicely and becomes a great means of direct damage in later parts of the game.
