- Big bones alert!
After seeing discussion about 2H Bone Harvest build and GT attempt by @ceno decided to try it myself. So I picked Oathkeeper for support class because of the Path of the Three skill allowing me to further decrease cooldowns on Bone Harvest and other skills. So I have BH every 1.4 seconds dealing massive damage. You can dish out over 1 million crits in Crucible and SR!
Also nice opportunity to use new weapon Nightbringer, new ring and belt. Credits to Bone Jovi BH caster Ritualist done by @mad_lee.

Few things are changed:

- Pants are now single rare - Thunderstruck of Readiness.
- Seal of Annihilation in amulet, Tainted Heart in medal and Restless Remains in gloves.
- Shuffle of armor augments to cover acid resistance.
- Ravenous Earth picked over Ill Omen.
- Helm is crafted for slow.
Also tried SR 85 with no problems.

What I find key it’s full Blood Knight set giving conversion and damage boost to the skill. Also Ghol gloves have - CDR mod and make sense to take medal for extra DA boost. Nightbringer weapon it’s good fit providing excellent CDR and physical resistance. Also:
Rings - Decided to use Cursebearer ring for -RR proc and also Morgoneth ring, which have offensive proc and OA. Also helping me cap the main skill node. Options are Mark of Fallen and Lifegiver’s Signet.
Belt - String of Maggots for +1 Necro. Finally vitality/acid Necro belt.
Relic - Decided to take rarely used Uro relic. I think it’s been awhile since someone’s used the granted skill but it fits in my rotation and it’s suited for 2H builds with massive weapon damage compartment. Option is Meditation.
Boots - Magelord were last minute decision but they are surprisingly good here. OA, DA, Slow res, total damage and +2 Spectral Binding are all useful.
Pants - Reaper MI for +3 to Soul Harvest. Since build have elemental to vitality conversion it’s worth using SH.
As usual it’s always good idea to take Rattosh and Dying God on vitality build. Also picked Scales for nice proc, doing many things including leech, flat RR and some damage. Ghoul and Bat for extra defense. Although this is vitality build, it survives fine.
Attributes and crafts are up for personal taste. I invested some points in spirit for energy regen and some extra damage.
Build it’s piano without spam casting spell or auto attack. With low speed and low CDR on Bone Harvest it’s simply not worth it. Decided to use Omen for damage reduction and procing and not RE. Build it’s streamlined this way and also hate to rely on RE in every Necro build. Amatok rune is so good, requiring no target and with damage conversion dealing nice damage too.
As whole stacking vitality decay helps dealing damage in between big BH hits.
I reached SR 90 . The sustain allows me aggro all enemies at same time in boss chunks pre 80 and not die. And with few exceptions SR 75 should be like walk in the park.
Past 85 build becomes less effective, with enemies hit hard, DoT’s are quite dangerous. Lost timer against Gargaban+Anasteria. Reached 90 though.
In Crucible buffs and banners build it’s almost immortal. Done 10 tries(3+3+4) not dying once. So much defense so you can’t die even if you make mistakes. Time is between 5:50 and 6:35 with average around 6:15-6:20. Here’s video from my best run - 5:50!
Also Ravager of Minds, no consumables, full face tanking mode 2:03, flexing muscles
Add another outstanding performance , this time against naked Crucible - 7:23!
