Kay's Summoner Memorial Page | New Guide is linked inside!


Hi everyone!

When I made my guide in 3.3, it was really small. I only used 2 posts, but nowadays I need more space to keep making my summoner guide. I keep reaching 50,000 word limit and can't update :( It takes a long time to load and save the page too!

So, I have moved the 3.15 guide to:

>>> https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/3179145 <<<


I restored the original guide from 3.3 as a memorial. It's really funny to look back at my old POE guide :)






INTRODUCTION & SUMMARY
Cannibal Fire-Eaters are a nice spectre, not popular like Tukohama's Vanguard and Solar Guards. Unlike the popular spectres, Fire-Eaters can only be found in maps.

This is a hybrid build that solely focuses on scaling Fire-Eaters' damage to the level of pre-Dyadus nerf Tukohama's Vanguards. It's different to other hybrid builds by focusing on jewels instead of auras to boost the Fire-Eaters' DPS.

Pros:
+ Face-melting DPS (see PoB in mechanics section)
+ Shotgun packs
+ 10k+ eHP (1.4k hp + 9k es)
+ Zoomzoom (+150% movement speed)

Cons:
- Cannibal Fire-Eaters are only available in maps
- Cannot do elemental reflect mod
- Moderately expensive
- Dependent on jewels
- Some bosses are impossible to do due to a bug

VIDEOS
Spoiler
Videos are the best way to showcase a build, so here are a couple.
I'm currently grinding my way towards 40/40, so there'll be more later.

Passive Skill Tree

Level 92, 13-jewel sockets

Bandits: Kill all

Ascendancy

1: Invoker
2: Soul Weaver
3: Commander of Darkness
4: Puppet Master

Pantheon

Soul of Shakari (helps chaos resistance)

Also, you can switch the minor pantheon depending on what you are fighting, eg. using Yugul when fighting Uber Elder.

Path of Building

GEAR / ITEMS
Spoiler
Shield:
This build can be played in three variants: high DPS and safe.
For high DPS, you will be using Victario's Charity + Necromantic Aegis so your minions will generate frenzy charges:
Unavailable

For safe, use Esh's Visage, so that chaos damage does not bypass energy shield:

Chest:
Vis Mortis, for the extra spectre. 6L is your goal, but 5L is enough to easily kill shaper. 4L will be enough for mapping up to red tier.
Important: must have 1 green socket.

Boots:
Bones of Ullr, for the extra spectre. Important: 15% movement speed.

Weapon:
Midnight Bargain, for the extra spectre. Important: 30% minion damage.

Belt:
Darkness Enthroned, for 2 jewel sockets, and the 50% bonus to each. With optimal jewels, you can get 150ES from this belt, plus 45-75 added damage to your spectres.

Helmet:
Rare helmet with as much energy shield (and resists).
Another option, you could use a Vertex if your resists are fine.

Gloves:
Rare helmet with as much energy shield (and resists).
Important: open prefix for crafting 15% minion damage.

Jewellery:
Rings: As much energy shield (and resists) as you can afford. Important: try to get some chaos resist here.
Amulet: Presence of Chayula, for 60% chaos res, stun resistance, sizable ES bonus.

Jewels:
This build is jewel stacker. Stack Ghastly Eye Jewels and Cobalt Jewels. At, level 92, you will have 15 jewels sockets to fill.
You want flat ES and added fire damage. Additionally, look for minion leech and regen.
For cobalt jewels, you want %ES and % minion damage.
In addition, a Watcher's Eye with ES regen is highly recommended.

Flasks:
Two health flasks: a long duration flash with 'heat' and an instant with 'staunching'. Next, you will need a quicksilver with 'adrenaline'. I also like to have a quartz with 'adrenaline' because the main defense of this build is to keep running. Lastly is a sulphur with 'dousing' (the 6% regen will apply to energy shield).

Enchants
Boots: +2% life/mana regen
Helm: +40% Spectre Damage
Gloves: X of Light (drops consecrated ground) or X of Reflection (create a copy of you).




GEM LINKS
Spoiler

6L / 5L (Chest) - Fixed link set up, with one gem swap.

Colours: 5B1G. Green is mandatory, so a 5L will be 4B1G.


For a 5L, drop Controlled Destruction.

For stationary bosses, you can swap Faster Projectiles for Slower Projectiles. This will give you 29% more damage.


4L (Helmet, Gloves, Boots) - 2 fixed link set ups, 1 variable.

Colours: 3R1G, 3B1R, 2B2G.

Defence / Movement:

I recommend levelling up CWDT so it's about 10% of your ES. This build uses Phase Run as an active skill to boost run speed.

Movement Skill / Minion Shotgun:
Unavailable
Unavailable
Unavailable
Unavailable

Lightning Warp has really nice range, but the casting delay is at the point you cast it. This means you shouldn't be using it to get out of immediate trouble, eg. shaper beam.
You can combine Convocation and Phase Run to run into the middle of big packs and shotgun them. Very satisfying.

Curse / EE:
High DPS
Unavailable
Unavailable
Unavailable
Unavailable

Arc can be swapped for Vaal Lightning Trap if you can generate kills. It drops shocking ground for 20% more damage.
Unavailable


Balanced

While mapping, I recommend blasphemy, so you can just run around and apply the curse. You can swap it with CoH for boss fights

Safe
Unavailable
Unavailable
Unavailable
Unavailable



3L (Weapon, Shield) - 1 fixed, 1 variable.

Colours: 2B1R, 2B1G.

Offering:

Flesh Offering instead of the usual Bone Offering as we're here to melt faces.

Golem Support:
Here we will use a golem to apply Combustion for a -19% res debuff on enemies.
High DPS
Unavailable
Unavailable
Unavailable

For high DPS, use a Flame Golem to apply the Combustion debuff.

Balanced / Safe
Unavailable
Unavailable
Unavailable

For more safety, swap to the Stone Golem to get some regen (applied to ES). Additionally, Discipline slotted here for more ES



2L (Belt) - Ghastly Eyes

Darkness Enthroned has two abyssal sockets and gives a 50% bonus to each. So, two Ghastly Eyes with 50ES will give you 150ES overall, which is more than a crystal belt.

Key mechanics: Spectres & Spiders

KEY MECHANICS

1. Spiders
Arakaali’s Fang summons spiders that have high movement speed, are extremely aggressive, and will attack everything on-screen and off-screen. They hit with physical and chaos damage, and will proc poison. They are also immune to damage.

2. Speaker’s wreath & spider’s poison
Speaker’s wreath blocks your spectres and spiders from killing monsters with hits, because they cannot ignite the monsters.
This means all monsters will die from spider’s poison.
And any kill from a minion’s poison will count as a player kill.

3. on kill effects
Spider’s poison kill will proc any ‘on kill’ effect, such as:
• Re-spawning spiders
• Life and ES recovery



HOW TO PLAY

To start mapping, let spectres hit the nearest monsters. They will reduce the monster’s life to 0, but they won’t be able to kill them because of Speaker’s Wreath.
Walk close and kill the monsters. This will spawn spiders.
See build guide video for demonstration.

The DPS is definitely there for a deathless kill, but I have yet to do it deathless, though. Working on it.

This is a strictly worse version of a SG+Skele build. Your fire-eaters clear slower than pierce+faster proj SGs, and your single-target is worse than pseudo 5-linked skele. Plus walking around in 3.3 with 1.4k HP sans Visage/Wrappings is just asking to die.

SG+Skele is certainly a good build, I agree with you there. However, the point of this build was to see if FEs could replace TVs without needing FGs or some other minion as clear speed helpers. I think it succeeds; it certainly feels a lot better than TVs without Dyadus.

1.4k HP without shav's is asking to die in any league. It's managable though - I've done a full deathless chayula, for example. Also, the build is really meant for T16+Shaper+Uber Elder, so I never really considered getting a shav's. But, I'll see if I can borrow a 6L shav's to link to the build, when I can. Thanks for the suggestion.

Hi, sorry for the late reply. I've been busy tweaking this build for Uber Elder.
As a result, I've had to update the guide because 'High DPS' wasn't viable for Uber Elder.

I've simplified the build to just one setup: https://pastebin.com/a5L8k51t
