Necromancy Solo AoD Basic aod


Nex: Angel of Death can be done solo using Necromancy necromancy with relatively low requirements due to the strong multi-target damage and sustain tools available to the combat style. This guide will cover strategies applicable to solo players that will work both for getting your first kill and for consistent farming of the boss.

Rotation and Strategies

Phase 1

⬥ Use Statius's Warhammer swh eofspec to apply its defence reduction which will last until pillars begins

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Invoke Lord of Bones invokelordofbones may also be used for a slower-ramping defence reduction

⬥ Use Invoke Death invokedeath and Threads of Fate threadsoffate to clear out the reavers bloodreaver, utilising the stun from Death Guard special attack deathguard90 eofspec to keep them from reaching Nex

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Note that the reavers must be close enough for threads threadsoffate to reach them all, this can be timed as the reavers reach the set of green-rune tiles surrounding the center of the arena

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎⬩ Refer to Example Kills to see this in action

⬥ When using defensives, keep in mind that Nex's melee autoattacks will reset defensive cooldowns at 5, 10, and 15 enrage stacks, visible on your debuff bar

⬥ During the elements special attack, use defensives such as disrupt / res to absorb the incoming damage from the quadrant Nex is facing

Example P1 Rotation

Note: Replace omniguard spec ‎ ‎with soulsap / necroauto if not owned

⬥ If the reavers bloodreaver are 1 tile away from Nex after you stun them due to late threads threadsoffate timing, then walk 2 tiles away from Nex diagonally and continue the rotation. Relure after reavers die.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• To relure you dive to the center and walk 2 tiles diagonal away from Nex aod

⬥ Note that the reaver-killing rotation will require 12 necrosis stacks when using tier 90 weapons:

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• invokedeaththreadsoffatedeathguard90 eofspecsoulsapvolleyofsouls

⬥ To prepare to phase Nex into phase 2, hold damage slightly before hitting 2.1 million health constitution and wait for her to start her elements special attack, using a high damaging ability such as fingerofdeath / deathguard90 eofspec / omniguard spec to guarantee the phase as she jumps

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Make sure to phase before ice walls and reavers can spawn

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• This is to ensure as much time as possible during phase 2 before she uses another elements special attack, which will spawn additional reavers bloodreaver that will be very difficult to deal with during that phase

Phase 2

⬥ Phase 2 will begin as Nex hits 2.1 million health constitution and will be shortly followed by amalgamation bloodamalg spawns, which will be cleared with Invoke Death invokedeath and threads threadsoffate

⬥ The objective is to kill all 4 amalgamations simultaneously and lure all minions into the center such that scythe combo spectralscythe and threads threadsoffate will hit them all as well as Nex

⬥ In the meantime, focus on getting Nex down to 1.8 million health constitution to avoid getting another elements special attack, which will spawn blocking tiles that will prevent the minions from being lured properly

deathskulls / bloat / omniguard spec / fingerofdeath / deathguard90 eofspec on Nex to deal as much damage as possible to phase

Nex should be centered during this phase if you phased at the beginning of the elements special attack in phase 1, otherwise make sure to recenter her so that threads threadsoffate will hit all amalgamations

As amalgamations spawn

⬥ Tier 90 offhand skulllantern90: invokedeaththreadsoffate → (8+ necrosis) deathguard90 specsoulsapvolleyofsouls

⬥ Tier 95 offhand soulboundlantern: invokedeaththreadsoffate → 3 stack volleyofsoulssoulsapvolleyofsouls

Minion Lure

Solo Lure
⬥ Start anywhere in the center 3x3 area of the arena ⬥ (1): Dive dive as minions spawn and automatically aggro ⬥ (2): Surge surge as the minion you dove away from reaches the center ⬥ (3): Walk into melee distance of the minions once they are all lured to be able to spectralscythe all enemies

Killing minions

The recommended abilities are invokedeath + 2x spectralscythe + 2x spectralscythe2 + 2x spectralscythe3 + threadsoffatevolleyofsoulssoulsapvolleyofsouls

⬥ Use devo as minions spawn, freedom on the first set of stuns and anti as threadsoffate comes back off cooldown to prevent it from being interrupted and potentially losing a threaded volley volleyofsouls

⬥ Upkeep single target damage on Nex between spectralscythe and threadsoffate cooldowns

⬥ Blood Siphon bloodsiphon may be used for healing between spectralscythe and threadsoffate cooldowns

⬥ If done correctly, minions should die early in phase 3, leaving only Nex to deal with

Phase 3

Phase 3 involves using Necromancy's necromancy strong multi-target damage to finish off the minions' remaining health, which will then allow you to focus on Nex and staying healthy for upcoming mechanics

⬥ Start with deflectmage and use defensives devo / reflect / res as necessary to deal with incoming damage

⬥ Once minions are dead, splitsoul can be used as long as Nex's attacks are still flicked properly

⬥ Upkeep bloat and use livingdeath / omniguard spec as they come up to finish phasing Nex to 600k health constitution

Phase 3 Mechanics

Mechanics in phase 3 will happen in a semi-random order, with the primary restrictions being that ice cannot happen first and the same mechanic cannot happen back-to-back

Smoke Lines: Simply place and walk out, can use devo to prevent taking extra damage in case of a stun

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Remember to stay within melee distance of minions for spectralscythe range

Ice: You go into a 'stasis' mode where deathskulls will get cancelled if it returns to you and conjures don't attack anymore

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Use freedom to use a few more damaging abilities before you are imprisoned

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Disables defensives such as reflect / res but not shielddome

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Use shielddome + prismofrestoration (if using reaverpouch) and make sure to keep prayer flicking

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Preparation prep isn't put on cooldown so res can be used before ice and prep once you are imprisoned

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Can still use conjure abilities during ice but as said before conjures won't attack

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Other abilities such as splitsoul / commandskeleton can be used as ice is ending to 'save' some global cooldowns

Pool: Must have >14k health constitution to take the pool

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Tier 90 Deathwarden gear wardenhood90 and boosts from bonfire / desert pantheon aura pantheonaura + thermal spa thermalflask will put you >15k maximum health constitution

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Fortitude fortitude may be flicked on for up to 1000 additional maximum health constitution

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Use vitality to boost life points or heal up with food brew if unavailable

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Be wary of an invisible autoattack as Nex finishes her initial animation of spawning the pool

conjureghost / reaverpouch / soulsplit can take care of much of the healing between mechanics once minions are dead

Phase 4

⬥ All mechanics are straightforward from here on. Make sure to use invokedeath on each pillar and keep cycling strong abilities such as commandskeleton / volleyofsouls / omniguard spec / deathguard90 eofspec / bloat / fingerofdeath

swh eofspec can be optionally reapplied at any time after pillars begins

⬥ Bombs can be placed at max range on a wall next to a pillar or as close to the pillar as possible to leave as much open space as possible

⬥ Conjures will continue attacking when you go middle commandskeleton / commandzombie

⬥ Remember to upkeep prismofrestoration on each pillar if using reaverpouch

res / devo can be used to deal with the constant autoattacks from Nex

⬥ After all pillars have been defeated, you can reposition middle, only surging out to place bombs

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Make sure to keep track of which bar is the instakill / bomb if doing this to prevent accidentally bombing mid

⬥ Continue to use livingdeath / deathskulls / splitsoul / omniguard spec / volleyofsouls until Nex is defeated

⬥ Invoke Lord of Bones invokelordofbones stacks will carry over into phase 4, with the following amounts being required to maximise hit chance:

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• ~50 invokelordofbones stacks if no reaverring

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• ~100 invokelordofbones stacks if reaverring

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Stacks will last for 10 minutes since the last application so recasting invokelordofbones during phase 3 may be necessary in longer kills
