Simulacrum is a Blood and Bone Necromancer skill in Diablo III.

In-gameEdit

When cast, creates a bloody entity (visually, a skinless human body) that will, without any additional cost, duplicate any Essence-spending skills at any nearby target of its choice. For all purposes, these spells apply as if the Necromancer cast them, except for they spend no resources. However, the spell also comes at a considerable cost of quarter of the character's maximum Life.

Any effect that would increase minion damage will only apply to the Simulacrum's own attacks: its spells are only enhanced if the Necromancer's own are.

The Simulacrum will follow the Necromancer around, and will attack on its own (with a one-handed scythe), but can be attacked by enemies too (though it also blocks pathing).

Skill RunesEdit

Blood and Bone
  • Cursed Form: While active, makes all Curse skills apply all three curses to each target, even if the Necromancer does not have the other two Curses on their skill set. This does not cause the skills to be cast; instead, any enemy affected by one Curse automatically receives the effect of the other two.
  • Reservoir: While active, also increases maximum Essence by 100%. When this effect is applied, the current Essence also increases so that its percentage remains the same.
  • Self Sacrifice: While Simulacrum is active, if the Necromancer suffers fatal damage, the Simulacrum is immediately destroyed and the Necromancer is healed to full Life without dying.
  • Blood Debt: Life costs for skills are reduced by 75% of their original cost while Simulacrum is active. This does not apply to the Simulacrum itself.
  • Blood and Bone: Also creates the second Simulacrum of Bone, which will likewise duplicate spells (so each skill will be used 3 times at once), but the duration is reduced to 10 seconds. Life cost does not change.

Non-rune enhancementsEdit

  • Haunted Visions (Legendary Amulet): Simulacrum drains 5% of the Necromancer's maximum Life every second, but lasts twice as long.
  • Tasker and Theo (Legendary Gloves): Simulacrum attacks 40-50% faster.
  • Enforcer (Legendary Gem): increases damage by 15% (+0.3% per rank) and reduces damage taken by 90% (rank 25 bonus).
  • Bones of Rathma Set (Set Bonus for 2 items): Necromancer's minions have a chance to reduce the remaining cooldown of Army of the Dead by 1 second each time they deal damage.
  • Bones of Rathma Set (Set Bonus for 4 items): the Necromancer gains 1% damage reduction for 15 seconds each time their minions deal damage, stacking up tp 50 times.
  • Bones of Rathma Set (Set Bonus for 6 items): each active Skeletal Mage increases the damage of all minions and Army of the Dead by 625%, up to 2500%.
  • Trag'Oul's Avatar Set (Set Bonus for 6 items): Simulacrum and its Blood skills (which would cost Life to Necromancer) deal 3300% increased damage but cost twice as much Life to cast. Healing from skills is increased by 100%.
  • Jesseth Arms Set (Set Bonus for 2 items): while Skeletons are commanded to attack a target, Simulacrum deals 400% increased damage.
