I tried acquiring items last night for the Necromancer and I was unsuccessful. I need a new strategy, an approach. I shall have to think.

I will have to think on how I can increase my weapon damage for the Necromancer.

Pushing to GR65-70 will require that my necromancer deal 12-40 billion damage per hit consistently. Right now, the peak damage is about 6 billion per hit, it is simply not good enough.
Now that I have reached a plateau of sorts for my Necromancer, I will seek to acquire all the items associated with the Necromancer and extract their powers, yes, every single item.
I made Greater Rift level 64 with my necromancer last night. It was with the Inarius set build. I think I have hit a limit as I tried GR65 twice and failed abysmally last night. I need a better weapon, presumably an ancient weapon and more damage for my necromancer if I want to progress further.

No more easy progress, now comes the hard work.

I also made progress with my Rathma set build. I hit GR55. The Rathma set build was unable to do GR60. The Pestilence set build is limited to GR50.

Inarius set build - GR64
Rathma set build - GR55
Pestilence set build - GR50
Tang'Oul set build - GR45

I made Greater Rift level 60 with my Necromancer last night with the Inarius set build. I had more or less optimised my Necromancer with the right items and powers.

It is probable that I can push for another 2-5 levels. I will see tonight.

Meanwhile, I had optimised my Rathma set build further and pushed it to GR55.

I had prepared and planned for the Necromancer for a while now based on what little I know, that of it being a class based on the intelligence attribute. This had allowed me to progress swiftly to acquire four full sets in a matter of days. It has also allowed me to progress swiftly to GR40.

As for allegations that the class is overpowered, it isn't. It is easy to build, easy to play, easy to progress in the intermediate GR levels, however, it might not be easy to achieve the higher GR levels. In the rankings, the best Necromancers are hitting GR104 which is a bit short of the Wizard's GR106 or the Witch Doctor's 107 for 2017.

Greater Rift level 55 with the Inarius set build last night. The previous night, I had used the Rathma set build to hit GR50.

The top 100 Necromancer players are using the Inarius build too. Is it overpowered? I don't think so. Why? The best necromancers only hit GR95 while wizards are at GR106 and other classes can exceed GR100.
I dreamed of her again.

Greater Rift level 50 now!

I have all four sets of the Necromancer and have four builds built around them! Yay!
