Key mechanics: Minion Army League Starter

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: your Skeletons are the main damage dealers, the zombies give you extra DPS and clearspeed and the spectres & golem are your bodyguards.

All minions scale physical damage.



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


As you get more currency during the league and progress into the endgame, I highly recommend upgrading to one of my endgame builds.

Each build has build defining uniques that might be very expensive!

Skeleton Warriors is the easiest/cheapest upgrade. You can actually play this SSF too.

Spiders need Arakaal's Fang.

Golems need Anima Stone and primordial stones.

Sentinels need 6L Coming Calamity.

Key mechanics: Pure Spectres

KEY MECHANICS

devouring diadem + sovereignty

2. Eldritch battery: uses energy shield instead of mana for skills. This will allow you to do maps with ‘no mana regen’.
3. Feast of flesh gives a large amount of life and energy shield recovery.

Key mechanics: Sentinels & Spiders

KEY MECHANICS

[Herald of Purity]
Herald of Purity summons Sentinels of Purity, which have the highest base DPS of all minions.
And the Coming Calamity keeps the mana reserve at 45%.

[Arakaali’s Fang]
Arakaali’s Fang raises fast-moving aggressive spiders with 100% chance to poison. They are great for clear speed.

[Speaker’s Wreath]
Speaker’s Wreath blocks killing hits from your minions because they cannot ignite. So, monsters can only be killed by poison.
This counts as a player kill, and will proc any ‘on kill’ effect, such as summoning sentinels, raising spiders or recovering life.

[Physical damage]
This build focuses on scaling physical damage with impale, dread banner and pride.

[Double curse]
Vixen’s Entrapment gives a second curse and triggers any socketed curse.
So, we self-cast punishment, which triggers poacher’s mark to get frenzy charges in boss fights.

[Support minions]
For the support minions, there are 2 demon harpy spectres and 1 pale seraphim.
They provide feeding frenzy, intimidate and maim.
The harpy and seraphim also have special debuffs that make enemies take increased damage.




HOW TO SUMMON


For mapping, cast desecrate to make corpses, hold divine ire, and use your writhing jar flask. Divine ire’s charging aura will kill the worms, and summon the sentinels and spiders from the corpses. And the speaker’s wreath mechanic will help sustain them when monster die from the spider’s poison.

For endgame bosses, switch to double wand or cold iron point to focus on single target DPS. Hold divine ire and use the writhing jar flasks to summon the sentinels. Also cast storm brand because each hit can refresh or re-summon the Sentinels.

Full build: https://pastebin.com/qUDzb7d7
Low budget: coming soon




JEWELS

• Ghastly Eye: Life, Damage, Taunt




CLUSTER JEWELS

Full build:
• 2x Large (8pts): Renewel, Feasting Fiends, 3rd notable NOT ALLOCATED.
• 4x Medium (4-5pts): Cult-Leader, Disciples
• 1x Small: Fortress Covenant
• 1x Small: Quickening Covenant
• 1x Small: Surging Vitality
• 1x Small: Enduring Composure




BANDITS

Kill all



ASCENDANCY

1. Commander of Darkness
2. Mindless Aggression
3. Unnatural Strength
4. Mistress of Sacrifice



PANTHEON

Major: Lunaris
Minor: Ryslatha

Ryslatha is needed for refilling Writhing Jar flask in endgame boss fights.


Gear, Gems Links & Flasks

HELMET

Enchant: +1 Sentinel


Divergent Dread Banner + Generosity gives 42% impale chance.


BODY

The body armour must be the coming calamity for the 45% mana reserve.
You can get extra gem levels from corruption. “+1 active gems” or “+2 duration” will work with sentinels.



Getting the right corruption is very difficult, so I recommend corrupting first, then adding sockets, links and colours with the crafting bench.



GLOVES



Poacher's Mark needs 20% quality for 5% chance to get frenzy charges when hitting enemies.



BOOTS

+2 minion boots from delve


Use 2x Demon Harpy and 1x Pale Seraphim.

This combo of gems and spectres makes enemies take a lot of increased damage.



WEAPONS FOR MAPPING

WEAPON:


SHIELD:


UNLINKED:

LINKED:




WEAPONS FOR BOSSING


For endgame bossing, use two wands with extra levels for the sentinels. You can get this from: +1 to minions, +1 to spells or +1 to physical spells. One wand should have the trigger craft.

WEAPON 1:
*Trigger


WEAPON 2:
No trigger


You can also use Cold Iron Point for both weapons, you need to self-cast flesh offering. The +3 levels work with Herald of Purity.




BELT





AMULET

For the amulet, use a hunter-warlord amulet with +1 phys and +1 strength.


Anoint the amulet with blood drinker (two opalescent, one silver oil)

You’ll get the life recovery because of the Speaker’s wreath mechanic.



RINGS

For the rings, look for or craft minion speed to help with clear speed.
Can also use Circle of Guilt for more DPS.




FLASKS

• Life flask with bleed removal.
• Granite.
• Quicksilver for a speed boost.
• Quartz.
• And a writhing jar.



Alternative Gear

More QoL / Less DPS


You can use Gravebind gloves instead of Vixen's Entrapment. It makes summoning sentinels and spiders easier, but lose double curse. You also swap out Speaker's Wreath to a better helmet.





Frenzy charges for mapping


You can use the speaker's wreath mechanic or Gravebind to get frenzy charges because kills counts as yours. Use replica Victario's charity.

Key mechanics: DPS Poison Spiders Occultist

KEY MECHANICS

[Arakaali’s Fang]
Arakaali’s Fang raises fast-moving, aggressive spiders that cannot die. They do physical and chaos damage, and have 100% chance to poison.
[Curses and poison]
The Occultist has the best ascendancies for scaling poison damage. She also gets an extra curse, and Profane Bloom makes enemies go pop.

[Triple curse]
Vixen’s Entrapment gives you an extra curse.
So, the build uses despair aura, self-cast punishment and poacher’s mark in the gloves.

[Speaker’s Wreath]
Speaker’s Wreath blocks killing hits from your minions because they cannot ignite. So, monsters can only be killed by poison.
This counts as a player kill, and will proc any ‘on kill’ effect, such as recovering life or raising spiders.

[Support minions]
Carrion golem is the only support minion.
He provides: Withered, feeding frenzy, and extra base damage.

Key mechanics: Tanky Poison Spiders Occultist

KEY MECHANICS

[Arakaali’s Fang]
Arakaali’s Fang raises fast-moving, aggressive spiders that cannot die. They do physical and chaos damage, and have 100% chance to poison.
[Curses and poison]
The Occultist has the best ascendancies for scaling poison damage. She also gets an extra curse, and Profane Bloom makes enemies go pop.

[Triple curse + blasphemy]
All 3 curses are auras: Despair for extra damage, and temp chains and enfeeble for survivability.

[survivability]
Also for survivability, there is determination for extra armour, as well as immortal call for reducing damage taken.

[on kill effects]
The build has 4 on kill effects: life recovery, raising spiders, frenzy charges and onslaught.
Note: Gravebind gloves count nearby kills as player kills, but the nearby range is pretty small, so sometimes it doesn’t work.

[Support minions]
Carrion golem is the main DPS booster with: withered, feeding frenzy, and extra base damage.
And also have undying evangelist for the shield.

Key features: Pure Physical Carrion Golems

KEY FEATURES

[carrion golems]
The build uses carrion golems because of their high attack speed and good AI. This makes them good for both bossing and map clearing.
And the build has 4 of them thanks to Golem Commander, the Anima Stone and several Primordial jewels.

[phys impale]
This build focuses on scaling physical damage with impale, dread banner and pride.

[double curse]
Vixen’s Entrapment gives a second curse.
So, we have self-cast punishment and triggered poacher’s mark in the gloves.
The golems will have full frenzy charges in boss fights due to their high attack speed.

[support minions]
For the support minions, there are 3 demon harpy spectres, 8 zombies and the skitterbots.
They provide feeding frenzy, intimidate, shock and chill.
The demon harpy also has a special debuff that makes enemies take increased physical damage.

I completely changed the Minion Army League Starter because of the big change to Elemental Equilibrium and the passive tree! Unfortunately, the levelling guide from 3.15 doesn't match the new build :(

Kingmaker, Garb, Tyrant

Crown of the Tyrant reduces all enemy resistance by 10%
Note: the socket must not match the main damage type!
eg. do not have green socket if you have cold damage minions.


Kingmaker for Fortify, critmulti and culling strike


Garb of Emphemeral protects from criting strikes


Make sure your AG has 75% chaos res by crafting gloves and boots with essence of Envy!


Support AG - Kingmaker

*I forgot to link gear before I made the AG, so here's a graphic instead:


Gem links:


Support AG - Sin Eater



Gem links:


*Extra chaos res helps keep AG alive. Craft them with



DPS AG - Face Breaker & Abyssus

*I forgot to link gear before I made the AG, so here's a graphic instead:


Gem links:







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.


+1 phys/+1 str for HoP

Need:
Hunter amulet with +1 str
Crusader amulet with +1 phys
Awakener Orb

NOTE: hold alt key to check mods on amulets. There must be only one influence mod!


Click on orb, click on one amulet to hold the mod, then click on second amulet to add mod. The orb will add influence mod and reroll other mods:


+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




7-link helmet

+2/3 to gems (Empower)
Minion Damage
Hypothermia


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


+2/3 to gems (Empower)
Minion Damage
Hypothermia
Elemental Damage (Horror Essence)
+crit


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






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.


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.
