Where is Raise Skeleton Necromancer Summon Ability in Diablo 4

The Raise Skeleton Diablo 4 Necromancer summon remains as an ability of yours even after you pick up the Book of the Dead. It doesn’t vanish into thin air, don’t worry. All you need to do is press “S” on your keyboard to bring up the list of skills. You’ll find it under the Passive tab. From there, you can place it into any quickbar slot you want it in. And you want to have Raise Skeleton on you, because it’s extremely useful. So much so that a Necromancer with a few bone buddies can delete even more powerful enemies with alarming ease. That’s not to say that the spells the Book of the Dead grants are useless, but my goodness the skeletons are so good. I won’t be surprised if the developers nerf it at some point, but I certainly hope they won’t. I love the necromancer.

So, yeah, that’s where your Diablo 4 Necromancer Raise Skeleton summon ability goes to. Don’t worry, the developers haven’t lost their entire mind and removed such a key class feature after letting you experience it for a while. I don’t know what the commands for opening the skill tree and setting skills to the hotbar are in the console versions, so feel free to let me know in the comments. However, the principle is the same. And that’s basically all you need to know. If you need assistance with something else in Diablo 4, check out our other guides.

    Pressing S to open my skills saved me. I could not find where it went. Thanks!

    I have just played d4 on PS5 and I am having a funny issue. I can’t figure out how to put back the skeleton on golem summon spell in to the actual “button”. I just can’t get to the skill as pressing up doesn’t get me to the spell – I can only chose the spell from the “tree” and casting is no in the tree. Funny

      I was able to get around this on the Xbox by going to the skill tree -> and then at the bottom where it says refund all and close there is a mapping to left joystick click for me that says “Skill Assignment” try this on the PlayStation hopefully it works for you!

    When using Raise Skeletons ability, is there an option to unsummon them after u use them or do I have to let them die out in combat?

    All the comments and even the article does not answer the question! You lost raise skeleton and you want it back?
    Clear all your skill choices. That cost you gold. Raise Skeleton will return as default. No other way I found, since beta has no passive tab in Book of the Dead
