[3.13] Kay's Necro Summoner (Spectres | Spiders | SRS) | League Start & Endgame | Video Guides





Hi everyone it's Kay!

This necro summoner is a very flexible build. The build start off with using a small minion army, and then gives you the choice to specialise on boss killing, fast mapping or a combination. You can do all content in the game with just one character!

This build is based on my own character as well as the suggestions and theorycrafting of many other players. So a big thank you to everyone who has contributed!

Key mechanics

KEY MECHANICS

League Start & SSF is designed for league start and solo-self-found. It is completely made from rare items, that you can pick up or self-craft. There are no uniques needed for this build.

The build uses a small army of minions: Spectres are the main damage dealers, golem and zombies are meat shields, raging spirits help add extra damage for tough monsters like bosses and the skeletons are extra meat shields as well as damage.

I recommend using the Frost Auto-Scout spectre. It’s the best all-round spectre with good damage and survivability.



DEFENCES

The build has several defensive features.
• Meat shield minions to take incoming attacks instead of you.
• A large life pool so you can take a hit and not instantly die.
• Good amount of block, and life recovery on block.
• Several defensive flasks that increase damage mitigation.
• Blind and taunt from your minions.

Upgrading after League Start

This build can carry you to level 100 and Sirus A8. But if you have currency and you play in the trade league, think about upgrading to Pure Spectres or Spectres & Spiders.

The easiest upgrade is the Pure Spectres build. I recommend upgrading in this order:
1. 4 spectres (Raise Spectre gem level 25)
2. Cluster Jewels
3. Devouring Diadem + reserve Haste aura
4. 5 spectres (6L delve body)
5. Awakened Dems
6. Unending Hunger*

Please check the guides below as well as the video guides on youtube for more information.



Key mechanics

KEY MECHANICS

The Pure Spectres build uses Devouring Diadem to boost DPS and quality of life.

devouring diadem + sovereignty
Firstly, it reduces mana reserve. So, combined with the sovereignty notable, you can reserve 100% of your mana with 2 auras and skitterbots.
Secondly, it gives eldritch battery, which uses energy shield instead of mana for skills. This will allow you to do maps with ‘no mana regen’.
Lastly, feast of flesh gives a large amount of life and energy shield recovery.

Key mechanics & How to play

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 with your Arma Brand. This will spawn spiders.
See build guide video for demonstration.

Key mechanics

KEY MECHANICS

1. The raging spirits are aggressive and can fly over, and around all land features. They will even fly off-screen to kill monsters and bosses.

2. Minion Instability
Minion Instability makes minions explode for 33% of their life pool when they reach low life. The explosion damage can be scaled by both minion damage and minion life.

3. Tavukai
The tavukai unique amulet deals damage over time to the raging spirits. So, after a short time, they will explode from minion instability. It also gives a big boost to the explosion damage.

4. Earendel’s Embrace
The minion bomber build also uses skeletons to help with map clearing. Earendel’s embrace deals damage over time to the skeletons. So, they will also explode from minion instability. In addition, the skeletons will increase fire damage taken by enemies.


5. Replica Siege Breaker
To help improve clear speed, replica siegebreaker spreads burning ground when the raging spirits and skeletons die.

6. skitterbots + profane proxy
Skitterbots normally have a shock and chill aura, but profane proxy will replace one aura with the socketed curse. So, the skitterbots become a mobile flammability curse aura.

7. Support minions
This build also uses spectres, zombies, and a golem for extra protection. The zombies and golem are meat shields.
And the spectres are the Undying Evangelist from Act 3: sceptre of god. Their special spell is the proximity shields, which helps defend against any hits from outside the shields.

General Notes and Warning
Crafting in PoE is random, so you may need to repeat the craft many times to get the required mods. Some mods have a very low chance of rolling and the crafting mats can be extremely expensive.

Keep these points in mind before you start crafting!

Cheap 5-link/6-link chest



Look for a 5-link/6-link chest with INT base & Screaming Essence of Greed.


SSF: Farm 6 Dapper Prodigy cards.


Trigger Wand



Trigger will auto-cast any gems in your wand when you use another skill.

You will need: wand with 1 free suffix.

Bench craft 'trigger' (3c).


Note: This craft comes from syndicate encounters and is rare.


+1 Minion Wand



You will need:
Convoking Wand
Bound fossil
1-socket resonator


Note: +1 minion gem has a very low chance. You may need to use many bound fossils to get the mod. The craft for +2 minion wand has a higher chance to get the mod, but will cost more. You can also use Alt orbs, but the chance is very very low!


+2 Minion Wand



You will need:
Convoking Wand
4-socket resonator
Jagged, Shuddering, Corroded, Metallic fossils


Notes: These 4 fossils will block all many unwanted mods.



+1 Spectre Gem Level Boots



You will need:
Boots with Elder influence
3-socket resonator
Bound, Shuddering, Pristine fossils






You can save some currency by only using 2-socket resonator and bound + shuddering.

Note: you need i86 boots to get 35% ms.


+2/+3 Minion Helmet


This will give your support minions more survivability.

You will need:
item level 86 Bone helmet
1-socket resonator
Bound fossil




6-link helmet for RK/RS


Step 1: Create Base

i86+ Elder or Shaper Bone Helmet.


Awakener Orb


Elder or Shaper 'other' helmet.


Click on Awakener Orb -> click on other helmet -> click on Bone Helmet.

This will make a Shaper/Elder Bone Helmet.



Step 2: Fossil Craft

3-socket resonator
bound fossil (minion mod: minion damage, +3 minion level)
frigid fossil (cold mod: hypothermia)
aetheric fossil (spell mod: +3% to Critical Strike Chance)





Step 3: Keep rolling until you get good mods.

(missing crit)


Mirror tier helmet



1. i86 elder/shaper bone.
2. spam horror essence until hypo 20 + 3% spell crit + 30% ele (3x suffix)
3. craft suffix cannot be changed
4. exalt slam -> get minion damage 20
5. if you don't get minion damage, scour -> go to 3
if you get minion damage -> slam again -> get +3 minion gem
if you don't get +3 minion gem, scour -> go to 3

Cluster jewels

Overshock clusters (low cost)

Large Jewel

Lightning damage, 8-passive, i50-67

Fossil craft (metallic) or Harvest craft (lightning) = Overshock(P) + any suffix notable
Then Augment Fire = Vengeful Commander(P)

or

Fossil craft (metallic) or Harvest craft (lightning) to get Overshock(P) + any suffix notable + Vengeful Commander(P)
[super lucky]


Medium Jewel

Aura, 5 or 6-passive, < i49

Alt spam for Vengeful(P) and First(P) + Regal

or

Harvest craft (any element) to get Vengeful(P) and First(P)


Crit clusters (high cost)

Large Jewel

Minion damage, 8-passive, i75+

Fossil craft (pristine) or Harvest craft (life) to get Renewal(P) + Feasting Fiends(P)
Then Augment Crit to get Vicious Bite(S)

or

Fossil craft (pristine) or Harvest craft (life) to get Renewal(P) + any suffix
Then Augment Crit to get Vicious Bite(S)
Then Augment Life to get Feasting Fiends(P)

(you need a random suffix to have 2 suffixes to block out fire res)

(Reminder that you can't augment magic items, so you will probably have to regal and then annul and hope you keep the desired mods.)


Medium Jewel

Aura, 4 or 5-passive, i68+

Alt spam for Vengeful(P) and Precise(P) + Regal

or

Alt spam for Vengeful(P) + any suffix + Regal
Then Augment Crit = Precise Commander(S)







Why use Victario's Charity without Necromantic Aegis?


I don't recommend Necro Aegis because mapping is already easy.
You will lose defense from shield (life,block,res)
You can't get powercharge in boss fight because nothing to kill.
It's easy to get frenzy charge against boss with HFT.



How does Elemental Equilibrium (EE) work with spectres?

"
Enemies you hit with Elemental Damage temporarily get +25% Resistance to those Elements and -50% Resistance to other Elements

The effect lasts 5 seconds or until being overwritten.

Trap, Mine, and Totem skills trigger EE ... Minions do not proc EE.

https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Elemental_Equilibrium

Any elemental spell you use will proc EE on all enemies that you hit. Your minions cannot proc EE, but they will benefit from its effects.

Example:
Slave Driver spectres use a lightning spell. So, you hit a boss with Armageddon Brand which is fire damage. It will proc EE: monsters will get +25% fire res and -50% lightning and cold res.


Elemental Equilibrium appears as pink circles under monsters.

Why use Spell Echo?

"
Spell Echo is a support gem that makes linked spell gems repeat themselves after the initial cast.

Spell Echo only works for spells cast by an actual player or minion

https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Spell_Echo_Support

This means that both the player and minions will benefit from the repeated cast, as well as the increased cast speed. Spell Echo will more than double your spectres' DPS.

Note: Spell Echo will cause Raise Spectre to repeat, so you need to remove it before raising spectres. Remember to put the gem back in when you are finished.


How do I get 4 or 5 spectres?


1. RAISE SPECTRE GEM LEVEL
1 spectre at level 1-12
2 spectres at levels 13-24
3 spectres at level 25+

Raise Spectre can be level 20 or 21.


Unnatural Strength ascendancy passive gives +2 level to minion gems.


Hunter influence amulet can give +1 to all intelligence skill gems.


Convoking Wand can give +1 or +2 to minion gems.


Boots can give +1 spectre skill gem.



2. DEATH ATTUNEMENT PASSIVE SKILL

Death Attunement gives +1 spectre. It can be found at the top left of the passive tree.

3. +1 MAXIMUM NUMBER OF SPECTRES DELVE BODY ARMOUR

Note: +1 chest is a rare delve drop; it cannot be crafted.


How about 6 spectres?

You need to use Midnight Bargain to get +1 spectre. But it takes away 30% of your life.
Another option is Queen's Decree, but it is a 2h sword so you can't use a shield and trigger wand for easy Bone Offering.

Can I do elemental/physical reflect maps?


Yes!

You will need to change Pantheon to Yugul and use Sibyl's Lament. They combine to reduced reflected damage by 105%





Can you check my gear? What should I upgrade?

There are 3 things you need to do:

1. Check the example equipment for upgrade ideas.

2. Make sure your spectres are in a 6-link.

3. Make sure you have Raise Spectre 25+

4. Stack life on all your gear.

That's basically it.

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
