Diablo 3: Rise of the Necromancer Trophy Guide

 The Silence When You Speak to Me

Listen to all of Master Ordan’s conversations in the Pandemonium Fortress.

The Pandemonium Fortress is the final area in Act 5. You will first meet Master Ordan when you arrive, make sure to talk to him until there’s no dialogues left. Then fully explore every level to find the missing conversations. Do not leave the game after story events play out, instead stick around and make your way through the first level and then the second to trigger your final dialogues.

 Serve the Balance

Reach level 70 with a Necromancer.

Self-explanatory. Get that new class up to 70!

 Bringer of Order

Complete Act V with a Necromancer.

Self-explanatory. Finish it!

 Bone Skewer

Damage 40 enemies with Bone Spear in 3 seconds. .

Make your way to the room where the Skeleton King first appears and you have to destroy four pillars. Kite over an ample amount of enemies, and then line them up with your Bone Spear until you are out of Essence. You can also trigger this trophy during the descent towards Cydaea, Maiden of Lust, thanks to the hordes of scorpions that attack.

 What is Dead Can Sometimes Die

Kill 1,000 Undead enemies with corpses.

Pretty self-explanatory, just make sure the corpses skills land the killing blows on the Undead enemies. This is more time consuming than anything.

 Curse Your Enthusiasm

Kill 5,000 cursed enemies. 

Self-explanatory. Eradicate 5,000 cursed enemies, which will simply just take time. You can make your curse permanent to make this go faster. Beware that if you’re playing co-op, you must kill the cursed enemy yourself for it to count.

 Terror in the Blood

Defeat Diablo after using an ability that costs health while below 10% of your life.

For this particular trophy, using the skill Blood Rush is useful as it only takes away 5% of your health. Keep an eye on your health bar (you’ll probably want to allow some free hits). Once your health is low enough trigger the ability. Once you use the ability, that satisfies that requirement and you can proceed to defeat Diablo. You can wear the trousers “Death’s Bargain” to prevent your health from regenarating, and use the health-consuming version of Bone Spear (Blood Spear) to get your health down quickly.

 Game of Bones

Use Bone Armor to rip the bones from the Skeleton King.

The Bone Armor can be obtained at level 19, once you have acquired it, equip it for your battle with the Skeleton King.

 Skeleton Crew 

Kill 500 elite (champion, rare, or unique) enemies with Command Skeleton minions. 

Seven skeletons are summoned with the Command Skill and you can target an enemy with them. Your skeletons must deliver the killing blow on elites for it to count towards the trophy. This can be very time consuming, so it’s advisable to take advantage of Rifts and equipping Nemesis Bracers to increase the amount of elites available.

 Self Controlled 

Kill your own Shadow Clone with Simulacrum during the Diablo encounter.

This trophy has some possible bugs – but if the trophy does not pop you can quit mid-fight and reload. To achieve it, simply lower the health of the Shadow Clone that Diablo spawns against you, and once it’s almost out of health summon your own clone via Simulacrum, making sure it lands the killing blow..

And there it is! Any tips of your own to share? Let us know in the comments and we’ll add it to the body of knowledge here. Enjoy your necromancing!
