Bone Armor is a Blood and Bone Necromancer skill in Diablo III. Unlike the original Bone Armor, it does not provide Absorption, instead behaving much like Soul Harvest.

In-gameEdit

When activated, damages nearby enemies (30 yards radius) and, for each target, applies a stack of protection to the Necromancer, reducing all damage taken. Newer stacks do not replace the old ones and are instead added to them (only replacing them when going over the limit), each stack having a separate duration, not refreshed with further applications.

Visually, the Necromancer will be encased in a layer of bones, obscuring all the normal armor, unless Grace of Inarius full set is assembled.

Unlike other similar spells, Bone Armor is not castable on the move and interrupts casting.

RunesEdit

  • Vengeful Armaments: Increases damage to 145% as Physical.
  • Dislocation: Damage type changes to Poison and enemies hit are also stunned for 2 seconds.
  • Limited Immunity: reduces duration to 5 seconds and increases cooldown to 45 seconds, but activating Bone Armor also makes the Necromancer immune to all damage and Crowd Control (and frees from any) for 5 seconds. Cooldown will not start until this immunity wears off, normally allowing this skill to be used every 50 seconds.
  • Harvest of Anguish: Damage type changes to Cold and Bone Armor also increases movement speed by 1% per stack.
  • Thy Flesh Sustained: Bone Armor will also cost 20% of maximum Life to cast, but in return, each stack increases Life per Second by 10%.

Non-rune enhancementsEdit

  • Scythe of the Cycle (Legendary Scythe): Secondary skills (Death Nova, Bone Spear and Skeletal Mage) deal 250-300% additional damage while Bone Armor is active but each cast reduces the remaining duration of Bone Armor by 3 seconds.
  • Wisdom of Kalan (Legendary Amulet): increases the maximum number of Bone Armor stacks by 5.
  • Trag'Oul's Avatar Set (Set Bonus for 6 items): Thy Flesh Sustained deals 3300% increased damage but costs twice as much Life to cast. Healing from skills is increased by 100%.
  • Grace of Inarius Set (Set Bonus for 2 items): Bone Armor damage is increased by 1000%.
  • Grace of Inarius Set (Set Bonus for 4 items): all Bone Armor stacks are refreshed to full duration with each application, and increases damage reduction by 2% per stack.
  • Grace of Inarius Set (Set Bonus for 6 items): while active, Bone Armor also creates a Bone Tornado around the Necromancer, damaging nearby enemies by 750% damage per second as Physical (damage type changes with that of Bone Armor). Enemies hit by the Tornado take +2750% additional damage from all of the Necromancer’s abilities and minions.
