GhazzyTV's Absolution Necromancer Ascendancy, Bandits & Pantheon Powers




The most optimal way to play this build doesn’t offer a lot of free choices when it comes to the ascendancy nodes. In this section, I will go through the nodes you’ll want and why.

My Preferred Set-Up

The ascendancy nodes are listed in order of importance and tied to the way you need to travel to access them.

  1. Mindless Aggression
  2. Commander of Darkness
  3. Mistress of Sacrifice
  4. Bone Barrier

Mindless Aggression

Mindless Aggression simple offensive scaling ascendancy node.

Commander of Darkness

Commander of Darkness provides some damage output but also helps build up the defenses for our minions & alleviates pressure of resistances for us on our gear.

Mistress of Sacrifice

Mistress of Sacrifice is mainly used for the sake of granting us the buff from Bone Offering which helps us reach higher block chance and, ideally, survive even the hardest content in the game.

Bone Barrier

Bone Barrier is the last node we’ll be taking and it provides tons of extra survival for both ourselves & our minions.


You will kill all of the bandits, as they provide no significant gains worthy of sacrificing the skill points.


Most builds go by personal preference, however, for this build, the Pantheons should not be anything but what is presented in this guide. You’ll want the upgraded Brine King Major God to avoid being frozen once you’ve upgraded this pantheon.

You should also pick the Shakari Minor God pantheon to mitigate Chaos Damage, as it is a resistance very few builds bother to consider and it usually also increases the cost of your gear.
