A solid, easy to play Scourge build that doesn't have to worry as much about enemy aggro thanks to its minions.

This is a great build, very tolerable for new necro players. You can steam-rolled champions without too much a scratch. Don't expect decent DPS and you'll have great fun. A must-try for minion lovers.

Tried this build, worked well for someone who loves the minion's. Not the top build but definitely new player friendly. Took down a lvl 80 champ solo without hitting 80% hp.
