[2.4] Kaz's Classic Summoner Build Guide
Hello guys, I want to make a guide on my take on the summoner build because I haven't seen one quite like mine. I want to share my experience and knowledge of the summoner with everyone. This won't be a beginner's guide, and thus will not include any leveling guides. I will be keeping it short and simple.
-It can do all map mods except blood magic.
-Shav's is the only expensive gear. Everything else is cheap/affordable.
-Very high DPS
-It is weak against physical damage (it's not meant to tank or take much hits).
-You have to deal with minion AI. You are not facerolling through content; you're simply commanding your minions to do that :P
-Shavronne's Wrappings (expensive) or Solaris Lorica (cheap)
-Prism Guardian (medium)
-Bones of ULLR (cheap)
-Midnight Bargain (cheap)
6 Link: Raise Spectre (Flame Sentinels) - Minion Damage - Spell Echo - Controlled Destruction - Elemental Focus - Fire Penetration. In that order.
4 Link: Raise Zombie - Empower - Minion Damage/Life - Melee Splash/Phys. Ideally this will be on your +1 Helmet.
4 Link: Enlighten lv4 - Purity of Fire - Purity of Ice - Purity of Lightning. If your Enlighten's only lv3, you can put this setup in your +1 Helmet.
4 Link: Animate Guardian - Ball Lightning - lv1 Clarity - Desecrate. Miscellaneous gems here.
3 Link: Anger - Vaal Haste - Generosity. Vaal Haste is your huge DPS boost. Use it for bosses only.
3 Link: Discipline - Haste - Determination. This will be in your Prism Guardian
1 Link (Unset ring): Flesh Offering
How to get high level Flame Sentinels
Go to these maps and use desecrate:
-T15 Overgrown Ruin
Lv100 Planned Skill Tree
You will be starving for strength and dex, mostly strength. That's why I took those +30 nodes.
Current Skill Tree
I use 2 Energy from Within jewels
What is different about my build?
-It doesn't use any curses. I dislike relying on curses, and EE + Fire penetration is good enough.
-It has 4 spectres, 10 zombies, 8 main auras, 1 or 3 vaal auras (replace desecrate and flesh offering with vaal auras on 'no regen' maps only), and 2 Animate Guardian auras.
-I use Elemental Focus support. It disables Flame Sentinels' ability to ignite. I dislike investing on DoT status ailments which can be negated by certain map mods and bosses. The damage is still insane.

I'm interested in the build, but I can't see skill tree. When i did it in the page show this message: "This profile tab has been set to private or you the lack the permissions to view it.".
