Last Epoch is taking the gaming world by storm thanks to its unique and engaging implementation of builds and dungeons, similar to how the good old Diablo games used to be before they were riddled with microtransactions and bugs.

However, one of the more technical builds players can use for their characters is the Wraithlord build. This build is basically Last Epoch’s version of a Necromancer build, with the only exception being that instead of the undead, players summon the Wraithlord, a ghoulish commander of Wraiths that scale off your own Summon Wraith spell. The Wraithlord then, in turn, summons an army of Wraiths for you.

So, if becoming a one-man army sounds cool to you, here’s the complete Last Epoch Wraithlord build guide. Take this build to the Sanctum Of The Architect and start causing havoc.

How to play as a Wraithlord Necromancer?

Firstly, to play as a Wraithlord Necromancer, you’ll need to cast the skill Summon Wraith, which will bring out the Wraithlord. Following up on that, apply the skills Dread Shade and Infernal Shade. This will significantly buff up its attack speed and damage. 

Since your Wraithlord can consume minions for extra health, you can summon non-wraith minions while being at maximum wraiths. You can consume 18 minions with one spell cast by using Volatile Zombies to summon 5 of them, which further 3 more Skeleton Vanguards and 10 Corpse Parasites upon their consumption. 

Once the zombies are cast, you can also use Bone Curse, as the walls created by Bone Curse count as minions as well. This means your Wraithlord will be able to consume them, granting it extra health. This will ensure your Wraithlord will take care of the damage and stay healthy.

Are there any issues with this build?

Players have reported an issue where the Wraithlord will traverse without attacking for periods. As of now, this hasn’t been officially fixed, but a temporary solution to this problem is to get the teleport experimental affix on boots. Due to the glitchy AI, the Wraithlord can also get stuck, and the only solution to this is to summon it again. 

And that sums up everything you need to know about this build. If you’re thinking of building a crit Wraithlord build, then you can always go for the Peak of the Mountain. Alternatively, if you’re struggling with the game’s matchmaking, then check out our fix for the Last Epoch matchmaking error.
