There are some synergies between Bloodrender and Packla’s Skins so I wanted to see how it works out in practice. The end result can facetank Ravager without gear/constellation changes or tonics.

Sadly the build requires some unbelievably hard to achieve gears (like the prefixes on the helm & amulet) and the amulet/pants need to be farmed on a different character (although it’s a weird that necromancer items are inaccessible to necromancer characters in the same playthrough though) or gotten randomly in other game modes.
Here’s a more budget version and while it doesn’t seem to have issue clearing the late game contents or extra game mode, it definitely deals considerably less damage: grimtools . com /calc/qNYmQAgN and is unlikely to facetank Ravager
Footnote: I really hope that one day we can farm some of these items in the main campaign in the same playthrough some how, it’s really weird to have the designated +1 in necro amulet MI locked out
