Very good looking gear! How are your gem levels feeling at the moment?

Also, how are you finding the Bloodbond to be performing for you?

Bloodbond was very good, but I ended up getting lucky with a saqawal beast and got the armor then six linked it. So looking like this now.
Also selling the perfect baron with dread banner 40% for around 18-20 ex at the moment. Since I know its good for me, but I don't need that much into this build. As I was originally doing it just cause my girlfriend chose this out of the list I was looking at. So once it sells, gonna be nice money

Hey mate! Thanks for posting your question!

If you could post your "path of building" or the character name you are presently playing on, I'll gladly take a look as time allows.

A couple of things to check:

1. What level are your zombies?
2. What supports are presently linked with your zombies?
3. What are your zombies dying to at the moment?


Thanks!

Hey mate!

I've had a chance to look at your POB. A couple of things to change around. You have got great items for the setup. Your uniques are on point. Good work on that!

First off: Stats + Itemization

Your total strength is only 813. This means using the Baron (which gives +1 Zombie every 300 STR) is only providing you with 2 additional zombies. Aim to squeeze a bit more strength out of your jewels by adding "Efficient Training" in to the jewel sockets near "Devotion" (top left of the tree by Righteous Army) and a second in the witch tree near "Lord of the Dead" (2 points away on your current tree).

Part of the benefit of the Baron is that half of your strength is added to your minions. The higher your strength goes, the higher amount of flat life and % physical damage is added to your minions.

Both of your rings presently could have their strength rolls improved by a significant amount to add even more strength to your minions.

Your amulet has a decent chunk of stats, resistances, and life on it. You could aim for an Astramentis in this slot, but if that costs you too much as a resistance option, simply aim for a T1-2 Strength roll with your needed attributes (dex/int) as the implicit. Then fill in the rest of your search with resistances you need. Occasionally you can find a corrupted Talisman that includes even +1 zombies for a decent price.

For flasks, you have an open slot, maybe grabbing the Karui Blood would be nice (as it fills your life up completely upon expiration).

Your minion jewels need a bit of retooling. Two of them are providing added minion damage (fire/Chaos), which are simply wasted rolls as we're using Brutality supported minions. The flat life and strength are decent on these rolls, so I can understand using them as transitioning abyss jewels until you get better regular jewels that have %# life + flat attributes.

Skill Gems:

Vaal Summon Skeletons - For most of 3.8 I used this only sparingly (bosses etc). I mainly wanted my Zombies to carry my damage. No need to put the zombies in the five link. Zombies with Meat Shield is a bit counter intuitive as meat shield will counteract the aggressive nature of Skeles to hit the target you've summoned them on.

Raise Zombie - While they are benefiting from +2 levels in your helm at the moment, increasing your strength across the board by the above suggestions, and transitioning them into your 5 link will do wonders for the Zombies. You can Aim for 2B 3R on your zombie five link, and go:

Raise Zombie (B) + Minion Damage(B) + Empower 3/4 (based on budget) (R) + Brutality + Melee Physical Damage. Potential 6th link could be Fortify (R) or Ruthless or Maim, depending on your own preferences.


This setup will boost your zombies by +1 level, allow your Spectres/Golem/Skeles to go into your helm (depending if you are using Blood Magic Supporter or not for Chieftain frenzy/power charges spam) and should allow you to farm white maps until around 80. At level 80, you should have enough levels that you can naturally progress through yellow maps while leveling your gems appropriately, and upgrading items with more and more strength as suggested above.

I hope that provides some clarity and direction moving forward!

You can certainly try it, however, I prefer in HC to stay away from using two handers as I find plenty of one handed options for damage (or on this build the Auromvorax for resistances) and shields are simply too good to pass on as a gear slot in HC.
