👻3.19👻 Kay's Summoner💥SRS Bomber💀Melee SRS🕷️Spiders💀Skeleton Mages






Hi everyone it's Kay!

Welcome to the forum guide for Kay's Summoner! I have build guides for most of the minions you can get in Path of Exile. I have builds for different budgets and also Solo Self-Found and Hardcore.

All my guides use a similar passive tree and most of the gear is the same too! So it's easy to change between builds.

The forum guide also has a full levelling walkthrough, animate guardian guide and crafting guide!

About the Build

Summon Raging Spirits Guardian

ABOUT

Summon Raging Spirit Guardian build for Path of Exile 3.19 Lake of Kalandra! Easy to play minion build with good damage, survivability and speed. Does not use any unique items, so it is suitable for a fresh league start or solo self-found. Showcase include T16 mapping and T1 mapping with level 65 and 4link SRS. Please check levelling planner for buying gems in Acts.

1. Minions penetrate 8% elemental resistance
2. Minions recover 5% of life on minion death
3. 20% increased effect of offerings
4. +50 life
5. 10% increased life
6. +1 maximum Unleash seals
7. 10% reduced mana cost
8. Determination 25% increased eff.



CLUSTER JEWELS

none



JEWELS

There are four jewel sockets that you can use for ghastly eye jewels.
The important mods are: life, minion damage and added fire damage.
If you are having mana problems, use a Conqueror’s Efficiency from Act 8.




ASCENDANCY

Radiant Crusade
Unwavering Crusade
Bastion of Hope
Time of Need



PANTHEON

Major: Brine King
Minor: Abberath
Freeze immunity, Burning ground immunity


Gear, Gems Links & Flasks

GENERAL

Here is an overview of the gear, including gems, links and examples.
Overall, the priority is to get the highest life mod on all items. You can self-craft this using Essence of Greed.
Also make sure you have 75% elemental resistance, and positive chaos resistance.
Lastly, I recommend getting gear that has armour and energy shield. This will make colouring the sockets much easier because almost every gem is red or blue.



HELMET

For the helmet, I recommend reservation efficiency and cast speed. You can also try to get +2 to all minion gems.

The gems are: Raise Spectre, Carrion Golem, Meat Shield and Increased Duration.



There are several support spectres that you can use:
During the story acts, I recommend the Carnage Chieftain from Act 2. The frenzy charges will give a boost to the SRS’s damage as well as your cast speed.

If you prefer more survivability, you can try the Undying Evangelist from Act 3. The proximity shield blocks all hits from outside the shield.

You can get a big damage boost from Xoph’s Favoured and Loyal when you encounter a breach or use a breachstone. (Xoph is the fire one). Xoph’s Favoured gives a 20% damage buff, and Xoph’s Loyal makes enemies take 20% increased damage.



BODY

For the body armour, I recommend chance to block spells and increased offering effect.
Use the crafting bench to add ‘increased maximum life and mana’.

The gems are: Summon Raging Spirit, Unleash, Minion Damage, Predator, Melee Splash and Fire Penetration.

You can swap Melee Splash to Multistrike if you need more single target DPS.




GLOVES

For the gloves, I recommend fire exposure and increased minion damage.
You can craft Minion Damage with an Essence of Fear.

The gems are: Determination, Tempest Shield and Flammability.
The 4th socket is free in the league starter.




BOOTS

For the boots, I recommend avoid being poisoned and Scorched Ground.

The gems are: Anger, Generosity, Convocation and Flame Dash.




WEAPON

You can use an Essence of Fear to craft your starting wand.
Then upgrade to a wand with: +1 to all spells or +1 to minion spells.

The gems: Desecrate, Flesh Offering and Life Tap.

The special craft “trigger a socketed spell” will auto-cast the socketed gems. You can get it from unveiling weapons from Syndicate encounters.



SHIELD

For your shield, look for +1 to all Fire Spells or +1 to minions.

The gems are: Cast when Damage Taken linked to Frost Wall. And unlinked Molten Shell.

I keep my Cast when Damage Taken at level 4 and Frost Wall at level 12.



AMULET & RINGS

Use your amulet and rings to get as much life and resistance as possible.
You will also need to craft “Non-Channelling Skills have -7 to Total Mana Cost”.
And anoint your amulet with Arcane Guardian for extra spell block.




BELT

For the belt, use a good leather belt or a stygian vise with a ghastly eye jewel.




RECOMMENDED FLASKS

For the flasks, I like to use:
• Life with bleed immunity,
• Basalt with extra armour,
• Quicksilver,
• Quartz with burning removal,
• Granite with poison immunity.

About the Build

SRS Bomber / Popcorn SRS

ABOUT

This is a fun minion build that kills with satisfying pops. The focus is on survivability and clearing large packs of monsters. The main downside of the build is the delay between casting and doing damage.
This guide is for a league starter that will get you through the story and into early mapping. You can even do red tier mapping with low cost gear.
However, you will need one unique item for maximum efficiency, but the build will still work without it.


MINION INSTABILITY

The SRS Bomber is built around Minion Instability, which makes minions explode when they reach low life. We can scale the explosion with both minion life and damage.
The Tavukai unique amulet deals damage over time to the SRS. So, after a few seconds, they will trigger Minion Instability.

For the spectres, I recommend Miserly Poacher from Heist. You can get them from the Smuggler’s Den or Underbelly.



BODY

For the body armour, I recommend chance to block attacks and increased offering effect.

Use an Essence of Fear to craft increased minion life.

The gems are: Summon Raging Spirit, Unleash, Minion Life, Combustion, Elemental Army and Ignite Proliferation.

Ignite Proliferation will help burn any monsters that aren’t hit in the explosion.
You can swap the gem to Concentrate Effect if you need more single target damage for bosses.




GLOVES

For the gloves, the most useful implicit is increased minion damage.
You can craft Minion Damage with an Essence of Fear.

The gems are: Flammability, Blasphemy, Increased Area of Effect and Tempest Shield.

If you want more damage, you can replace Blasphemy with Skitterbots, but you’ll need to self-cast Flammability.




BOOTS

For the boots, I recommend avoid being poisoned and Scorched Ground.

The gems are: Stone Golem, Animate Guardian, Meat Shield and Determination.

The Animate Guardian is completely optional and can be replace with zombies.




WEAPON

Look for a want with minion damage or +1 to all spells or +1 to minion spells.

The gems: Desecrate, Flesh Offering and Life Tap.




SHIELD

For your shield, look for +1 to all Fire Spells or +1 to minion gems.

The gems are: Molten Shell, Flame Dash and Convocation.

Use Convocation to reposition your support minion if they are in danger.



AMULET

For maximum efficiency, you need the Tavukai unique amulet.

Before you get it, you can use any amulet, and replace Elemental Army with Infernal Legion in your SRS links.

Anoint the amulet with Testudo for extra attack block.



RINGS

Use the rings to get as much life and resistance as possible.

I recommend crafting “Non-Channelling Skills have -7 to Total Mana Cost”.



BELT

For the belt, use a Stygian Vise with a ghastly eye jewel.

You can craft increased minion life with an Essence of Fear.

About the build: Minion Army League Starter


ABOUT

Minion Army League Starter only uses rare items, so the build will work in solo self-found. And it also has good survivability, so it’s hardcore viable too.
The build uses a small army of different minions for dealing damage, providing buffs and debuffs, as well as protecting your necromancer.



SURVIVABILITY

The minion army necromancer is designed for survivability.
The build has lots of life, block and armour.
It also has a good amount of life regen, as well as life recovery on block.
And your support minions stay close to your necro, so they will take incoming hits before you do.



MINIONS

The minion army necromancer uses minions to do all the hard work.
Your damage dealers are Skeletons and raging spirits. They have aggressive AI, and are able to kill monsters which are completely offscreen. They are also temporary minions that are easy to resummon when they die.
Your support minions are: a golem, spectres and zombies. They provide buffs for your minions and debuffs for enemies.

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!

About the Build

Endgame SRS Guardian

ABOUT

Endgame version of my Summon Raging Spirit Guardian.
This build scales up the damage and clear speed with special gear, awakened gems and cluster jewels.
It will feel a lot better to play, but it won’t be cheap. And you will probably need to self-craft some items.

Gear, Gems & Links, Flasks

GENERAL

Here is an overview of the gear, including gems, links and examples.
You will need to self-craft some items with fossils and essences.
Also make sure you have 75% elemental resistance, and positive chaos resistance.



HELMET

For the helmet, you want +2 to all minion gems, reservation efficiency and minion movement speed.

I crafted this with Bound, Sanctified and Shuddering fossils.

You can also use Faceted, but it's very expensive.

The gems are: Raise Spectre, Carrion Golem, Meat Shield and Increased Duration.

Increased Duration is for increasing the duration of the spectre buffs.
And for the spectres, I like using: Xoph’s Favoured, Xoph’s Loyal and a Pale Seraphim.



BODY

For the body armour, use Fleshcrafter so your SRS can ignore elemental resistances.

The gems are: Summon Raging Spirit, Awakened Unleash, Awakened Minion Damage, Awakened Predator, Awakened Elemental Focus and Divergent Melee Splash.

Swap Melee Splash to Multistrike when you fight Pinnacle bosses.

Divergent Multistrike is 90% the damage of Awakened.



GLOVES

For the gloves, I recommend Grip of the Council while mapping, and SRS duration gloves for Pinnacle bosses. You can get them in Delve.

The gems are: Hatred, Generosity, Anomalous Convocation and Flame Dash.

Hatred scales a bit better than Anger, but if you have Dex problems just use Anger.
Anomalous Convocation gives your minions a big speed boost.



BOOTS

For the boots, I like to have regen per Endurance Charge and Brittle Ground.

The gems are: Determination, Tempest Shield, Poacher’s Mark and Enlighten.

You will only need Enlighten 3, if you have mana efficiency on your helmet.



WEAPON

The wand should have +1 to all spells, +1 to minions, and trigger.

The gems are: Desecrate, Divergent Flesh Offering and Life Tap.




SHIELD

For your shield, I recommend +1 to all Fire Spells and life recovery on block.

I crafted this with Scorched and Pristine fossils on a Shaper Int base.

It's easier/cheaper to roll +1 fire than +1 minion.

The gems are: Molten Shell, Vaal Summon Skeletons and Feeding Frenzy.

I just use Vaal Skeletons for boss fights or other dangerous encounters. They will body block the boss and proc Feeding Frenzy buff.
You could use an Animate Guardian instead, but he can die easily.



AMULET

For the amulet, look for +1 to all skill gems. You can also try to get +1 to all fire gems as well but it's very expensive.

Anoint the amulet with Arcane Guardian for extra spell block.



RINGS

Use your rings to get lots of life and resistances.

You can also craft Minion Speed with an Essence of Fear.

If you have mana problems, you should craft “Non-Channelling Skills have reduced cost”.



BELT

For the belt, use a good Stygian Vise with a nice Ghastly Eye jewel.

You can also use a Darkness Enthroned if you want more DPS.



RECOMMENDED FLASKS


• Life with bleed immunity
• Basalt with extra armour
• Quicksilver
• Quartz with poison immunity
• Rumi's Concoction


Trade links / Upgrading from starter


Most important is Blessed rebirth on your cluster jewel. Can buy or craft it yourself. 15c
https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Kalandra/mv6G2grH6

Then get Fleshcrafter. Ignore ele resistance is a big dps boost. You can start with 5L for 60c
https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Kalandra/XmaJwE4TP

Then qucik 20% extra damage from gloves 1c
https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Kalandra/pK0ef0

Next look for shield with +1 gem and life recovery. Usually need to craft yourself.
https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Kalandra/b7pX0laiL

+1 wand. Should be pretty cheap. +2 wand can be later.

Maybe helmet next. I think it's best to get the crafting base and make your own +2 helmet with Bound fossils.

About the Build

Endgame SRS Bomber

ABOUT

Endgame version of my SRS Bomber.
This build takes the bomber into the endgame with better clear speed and much bigger pops.
But it’s still a bomber build, so it still has the delay damage, as well as constant resummoning.
The build requires specific items, but they shouldn’t be too expensive. And you will probably need to self-craft some rares, too.

*Highly recommend using Medium with 6 points. Each small passive is 12% minion life (big boost for explosion damage)

ASCENDANCY

Mindless Aggression
Bone Barrier
Plaguebringer

PANTHEON

Major: Brine King (freeze immunity)
Minor: Abberath (burning ground immunity)


Gear, Gems & Links, Flasks

GENERAL

Here is an overview of the gear, including gems, links and examples.
You will need to self-craft some items with fossils and essences.
Also make sure you have 75% elemental resistance, and positive chaos resistance.



HELMET

For the helmet, I recommend Mark of the Red Covenant. The increased damage is much stronger than +2 to gem level.

However, a helmet with +2 gem level and the extra SRS enchant is a viable option. The enchant combines with Unleash to double the total number of SRS. e.g. 5 SRS > 10 SRS in one cast!

The gems are: Stone Golem, Anomalous Feeding Frenzy, Elemental Army and Combustion.




BODY

For the body armour, use a Skin of the Lords. I like to save currency and just look for a keystone that doesn’t hurt the build, like the Impaler.

The gems are: Summon Raging Spirit, Awakened Unleash, Predator, Minion Life, Awakened Fire Penetration and Empower.

For better map clear, swap Minion Life to Infernal Legion.

This lets the SRS burn monsters before they explode.



GLOVES

For the gloves, the most useful implicit is increased minion damage.
You can craft Minion Damage with an Essence of Fear.

The gems are: Raise Spectre, Meat Shield, Increased Area of Effect and Increased Duration.

And for the spectres, I like using: Undying Evangelist and a Pale Seraphim.
Increased Duration will keep the spectre buffs up longer.



BOOTS

For the boots, I like Life Regeneration rate and Scorched Ground.

The gems are: Tempest Shield, Skitterbots, Determination and Molten Shell.




WEAPON

The wand should have +1 to all spells, +1 to minions, and trigger.

The gems are: Desecrate, Bone Offering and Life Tap.




SHIELD

For your shield, I recommend +1 Fire and life recovery on block.

You can use a minion shield for more damage, but it’s very hard to craft +1 minion and life recovery.

The gems are: Storm Brand, Flame Dash and Faster Casting.




AMULET

This will make your SRS pop sooner, get a Tavukai with -17% chaos res. And use Noxious Catalyst to increase the chaos damage.

Anoint the amulet with Testudo for extra attack block.



RINGS

For your rings, you can use this special combination to cover enemies in ash so they take 20% increased fire damage.
You need Polaric Devastation on the left side.

And a rare ring with Flammability on the right side.
The ring also needs ‘adds fire and cold damage’.

So now, your Storm Brand will hit with fire damage, curse with Flammability, ignite and then covered enemies in ash.



BELT

For the belt, use a Replica Siegebreaker.

The burning ground helps a lot for map clearing, and even boss fights.

And you can use Turbulent Catalyst to increase the damage from 20 to 24%.




RECOMMENDED FLASKS


• Life with bleed immunity
• Basalt with extra armour
• Quicksilver
• Quartz with poison immunity
• Rumi's Concoction

About the Build

Poison Spiders Occultist

ABOUT

Poison Spiders Occultist build focuses on survivability while still having good damage.
It has lots of armour, life and energy shield recovery and block cap without glancing blows.
However, the minions do poison damage, so there is a ramp up time for full DPS.
The build requires many specific items, and will be expensive. And I’ve also included alternative gems, if you want to use the Squire.

Gear, Gems & Links, Flasks

GENERAL

Here is an overview of the gear, including gems, links and examples.
Note that the build uses many uniques.



HELMET

For the helmet, use Ancient Skill with Flesh Offering attack speed enchant.

The gems are: Diving Ire, Cast while Channelling and Desecrate.

There’s also unlinked Flame Dash.

Use this gem combination with the Writhing Jar to raise spiders.



BODY

For the body armour, use the Brass Dome to ignore extra damage from critical hits.
*You don't need the corruption!

The gems are: Molten Shell, Determination, Vitality, Tempest Shield, Skitterbots and Enlighten.

The build will still work fine with Enlighten 3.



GLOVES

For the gloves, use Asenath’s Gentle Touch for Temporal Chains. When monsters die from the spider's poison, it counts as a player kill. Profane Bloom will come from the player and will count as a player hit for Asenath's gloves.

The gems are: Cyclone, Cast while Channelling, Desecrate, Divergent Flesh Offering.

You don’t need to use Cyclone all the time. Just use it to trigger Flesh Offering and to curse monsters on hit.



BOOTS

For the boots, try to get lots of resistances and movement speed.

The gems are: Malevolence, Increased Area of Effect, Awakened Generosity and Empower.

You can skip Empower if you want to save some currency.



WEAPON

The weapon is Arakaali’s Fang.
And you can ignore the stats because they don’t affect your minions.

The gems are: Multistrike, Awakened Unbound Ailments and Withering Touch.

If you want to save currency, Divergent Multistrike is about 10% less DPS compared to Awakened Multistrike.




SHIELD

For maximum survivability, use Aegis Aurora.
But the Surrender or a rare shield with life recovery are cheaper options.

The gems are: Vaal Skeletons, Feeding Frenzy and Culling Strike.

Use the skeletons against Pinnacle bosses for extra DPS.

You can trade survivability for a big DPS boost with the Squire. Use Awakened Melee Physical Damage, Awakened Void Manipulation and Divergent Minion Damage.

(should be awakened void, but I can't find mine)



AMULET

The amulet should be Aul’s Uprising with Malevolence.

Anoint the amulet with Testudo for extra attack block.



RINGS

You will probably need the rings to get Strength and Dex.
One of the rings must have Despair curse on hit.




BELT

For the belt, use Darkness Enthroned with a Ghastly Eye jewel and Amananu’s Gaze.

Your minions get 20% dot mod thanks to the 75% increased effect from Darkness Enthroned.

About the Build

Skeleton Mages

ABOUT

This is an easy to play minion build with good DPS, clear speed and survivability.
The build cost is medium, depending on the market.
Note that skeleton mages require the Dead Reckoning unique jewel.
The build also uses the Fleshcrafter unique armour.


SKELETON MAGES

The build uses Dead Reckoning to summon skeleton mages, which shoot enemies with fire, cold or lightning projectiles.
And the Fleshcrafter unique body armour allow them to completely ignore all enemy’s elemental resistances.


Difference between Necromancer and Guardian

NECROMANCER MORE SURVIVABILITY

Both has 75/75 block, but Necro has 100% uptime for both block.
Guardian have 75% attack block for 2s every 5s (Bastion of Hope) so sometimes his block is about 35%.


GUARDIAN MORE DPS

Guardian's ascendancy gives 40% cast speed and unnerve (enemy take 10% increase damage).

PANTHEON

Major: Brine King (freeze immunity)

Gearing

Gear, Gems & Links, Flasks

GENERAL

Here is an overview of the gear, including gems, links and examples.
You will need to self-craft some items with fossils and essences.
Also make sure you have 75% elemental resistance, and positive chaos resistance.
The gear is the same for both the Guardian and the Necromancer.
The two differences are the offerings and the amulet anointment.



HELMET

For the helmet, you want +2 to all minion gems and reservation efficiency.
The enchant should be Skeleton damage.
And add +1 skeleton with your crafting bench, if you can.

The gems are: Raise Spectre, Stone Golem, Anomalous Feeding Frenzy and Minion Life.

For the spectres, I’m using 2 carnage chieftains and 2 pale seraphims.
Buffs are more reliable if you have two of each spectre.



BODY

For the body armour, use Fleshcrafter so your skeleton mages can ignore elemental resistances.

The gems are: Vaal Summon Skeletons, Awakened Minion Damage, Spell Echo, Predator, Phantasms and Pierce.

The phantasms help with damage and map clear. And your other minions recover 5% life when they die because of Life from Death.
You can swap Pierce to Hypothermia for more DPS in boss fights.




GLOVES

For the gloves, I recommend Breathstealer for the Blighted Spores, and to get Charisma anointment.

The gems are: Tempest Shield, Sniper’s Mark, Determination and Defiance Banner.




BOOTS

For the boots, I like regen per Endurance Charge and Brittle Ground.

The gems are: Zealotry, Generosity, Raise Zombie and Minion Life.

You could replace the Zombies with Animate Guardian if you’re not scared of him dying.



WEAPON

The wand should have +1 to all spells, +1 to minions, and trigger.

Guardian gems are: Desecrate, Flesh Offering and Life Tap.

Necromancer gems are: Desecrate, Bone Offering and Life Tap.




SHIELD

For your shield, I recommend +1 to minions, and life recovery on block.
This might be too expensive to buy or craft. So, just choose either life recovery shield for survivability, or +1 shield for more DPS.

The gems are: Molten Shell, Flame Dash and Convocation.




AMULET

The amulet should have at least +1 to all skill gems.

For Guardian, the anointment is Arcane Guardian for extra spell block.
For Necromancer, the anointment is Testudo for extra attack block.



RINGS

Use your rings to get lots of life and resistances.
I also used my rings to get enough Strength and Dex.




BELT

For the belt, use a good Stygian Vise with a nice Ghastly Eye jewel.

You can also use a Darkness Enthroned if you want more DPS.



RECOMMENDED FLASKS


• Life with bleed immunity
• Basalt with extra armour
• Quicksilver
• Quartz with remove burning
• Rumi's Concoction


Trade links / Upgrading from starter


Most important is Blessed rebirth on your cluster jewel. Can buy or craft it yourself. 15c
https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Kalandra/mv6G2grH6

Then get Fleshcrafter. Ignore ele resistance is a big dps boost. You can start with 5L
https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Kalandra/XmaJwE4TP

Next look for shield with +1 gem and life recovery. Usually need to craft yourself.
https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Kalandra/b7pX0laiL

+1 wand. Should be pretty cheap. +2 wand can be later.

Maybe helmet next. I think it's best to get the crafting base and make your own +2 helmet with Bound fossils.

About the Build

Critical Stirke Skeleton Mages (high budget)

ABOUT

This is a high budget build that scales the DPS into 10s of millions by focusing on critical strike damage.
However, the build leans more towards glass cannon than super tanky.
The support minions are also a bit squishy, so you need to keep an eye on the Animate Guardian.
I made this build on my Guardian, but it can be adapted for the Necromancer with some changes.


SKELETON MAGES

The build uses Dead Reckoning to summon skeleton mages, which shoot enemies with fire, cold or lightning projectiles.

The enchant should be Skeleton damage.
And it should also have +1 skeleton number, if possible.

The gems are: Anomalous Raise Spectre, Anomalous Stone Golem, Divergent Animate Guardian and Anomalous Feeding Frenzy.

For the spectres, I’m using 2 host chieftains, 1 carnage chieftain and 1 pale seraphim.
Feeding Frenzy makes the AG suicidal, so it might be better to use Meat Shield or Elemental Army instead.




BODY

The body armour is a +2 Fleshcrafter. It can be +2 duration or +2 minion.

The gems are: Vaal Summon Skeletons, Awakened Minion Damage, Awakened Spell Echo, Divergent Predator, Increased Critical Damage and Increased Critical Strikes.

I swap critical strikes to Summon Phantasms for mapping.




GLOVES

The gloves are Vixen’s Entrapment to get a second curse, as well as auto-casting the socketed curse.

The gems are: Sniper’s Mark, Precision, Convocation and Tempest Shield.

*Self-cast curse is socketed in the shield.



BOOTS

The boots have Brittle Ground for +2% crit chance.

The gems are: Flame Dash, Steelskin and Punishment.

*Punishment is the self-cast curse, which triggers Sniper’s mark in the gloves.

*Alternative*
You can make the build tankier with Aegis Aurora and swap Haste aura to Determination (no generosity)




AMULET

The amulet is Ashes of the Stars.
Reservation efficiency is the most important mod.

And the anointment is Arcane Guardian for extra spell block.



RINGS

Use your rings to get lots of life and resistances.
I also used my rings to get enough Strength and Dex.




BELT

The belt is Darkness Enthroned with two best Ghastly Eye jewels.

About the Build

Cold Conversion Skeleton Warriors (high budget)

ABOUT

This is a high budget build that scales a lot of damage, as well as freeze and shatter for safer mapping. It’s also a lot easier to see what’s happening without skeleton mages spam.
However, it’s not super tanky and doesn’t have fast clear speed because you need to resummon the skeletons.
The support minions are also a bit squishy, so you need to keep an eye on the Animate Guardian.

For the spectres, I’m using 2 carnage chieftains, 1 crabbie and 1 pale seraphim.
If Feeding Frenzy is too rippy for the support minions, swap to Meat Shield instead.

The body armour is a +2 Fleshcrafter. It can be +2 duration or +2 minion.

The gems are: Vaal Summon Skeletons, Awakened Minion Damage, Divergent Predator, Anomalous Elemental Proliferation, Divergent Melee Splash and Awakened Elemental Damage.

When fighting Pinnacle bosses, swap Proliferation and Splash to Elemental Focus and Multistrike.




GLOVES

The gems are: Hatred, Haste, Precision and Awakened Generosity.

The 75% cold conversion is better than 100% conversion because of Generosity.

The gems are: Divergent Tempest Shield, Convocation, Assassin’s Mark and Enlighten.

*Note: divergent tempest shield can be very expensive. Normal tempest shield is OK! (lower spell block)

The wand has “Minions are Aggressive”, +1 to all spells, +1 to minions, and trigger.
The special mod “Minions are Aggressive” gives your Skeleton warriors the Dash skill, which helps a lot for mapping.

Necromancer gems are: Desecrate, Divergent Bone Offering and Life Tap.




SHIELD

The shield has +1 to minions, increased critical chance for minions and life recovery on block.

You can change Portal to something else, like Faster Casting.

>>> Watch 3.18 Pure Spectres Necromancer build guide video on YouTube <<<



About the Build

Pure Spectres Necromancer

ABOUT

This build focuses on fast map clearing using ranged spectres. No annoying resummoning like some other other minions. Unfortunately, you trade bossing killing power for the fast clearing. Warning: the build is not tanky!


SPECTRES

Spectres are permanent minions, so you don’t have to resummon them all the time, like skeletons or SRS.
And unlike other permanent minions, such as golems, you can use ranged spectres for faster mapping.
The raise spectre gem gives you 3 spectres at level 25, which you can get with raise spectre 21 and some other items.
And you can get +1 spectre from Death Attunement and another +1 from a special body armour.


MISERLY POACHERS

Fire projectiles + Explosing Arrow (physical to fire conversion)
DAMAGE: OK
ATTACK SPEED: HIGH

They’re easy to get because they come from Heist Underbelly or smuggler’s den.
All you need to do is open the contract, go inside and desecrate.
You won’t see any corpses, but you can hold the corpse targeting key to find them.


HYRRI'S WATCH

Cold projectiles (physical to cold conversion)
DAMAGE: HIGH
ATTACK SPEED: LOW

You can get them from Karui Legion encounters.
After you find a legion encounter, look around until you find a Hyrri’s Watch.
Kill it and quickly raise the spectre before it disappears!


SYNDICATE OPERATIVE

Physical projectile (need cold conversion)
DAMAGE: LOW
ATTACK SPEED: HIGH
SPECIAL: Pierce all

You can get them from Assassination missions, as well as Research and Intervention hideouts.
They will appear in a cloud of smoke, and you will need to raise the spectre before it disappears!

• 1x Small: Enduring Composure

NOTES:
You don't need all 3 notables on your large jewel!

ASCENDANCY

3. Commander of Darkness
4. Mistress of Sacrifice



PANTHEON

Major: Lunaris
Minor: Abberath
For the pantheon, I like to use Lunaris for reducing damage, and Abberath for burning ground immunity.
It’s especially important if you use Searing Exarch influence.


Gear, Gems Links & Flasks

GENERAL

Here is an overview of suggested gear, including gems & links and examples.
Overall, look for the highest life and resistance mods on your rare items.
Then look for these specific mods.



HELMET

If you have “Minions are Aggressive” on your wand, use a helmet with Elder influence to get the Minion Life mod.


Otherwise, use Maw of Mischief to get the aggressive mod.


Enchant: Flesh Offering increased attack speed.

The gems are: Animate Guardian, Carrion Golem, Anomalous Feeding Frenzy and Elemental Army.


You can check my Animate Guardian guide for details on his equipment.



BODY

The body armour should have +1 to spectre number.
This mod cannot be crafted. It comes from the special delve encounter that says ‘contains minion or aura items’.


Use Embers to add Offering effect, and Ichor to add Hatred effect.


The gems are: Raise Spectre, Predator, Awakened Minion Damage, Critical Damage, Anomalous Pierce and Lesser Multiple Projectiles.


For Syndicate Operatives, us Vicious Projectiles instead of Pierce.




GLOVES

For Hyrri’s Watch and Miserly Poachers, use Grip of the Council.


And for Syndicate Operatives, use Triad Grip.


The gems are: Hatred, Vaal Haste, Phase Run and Generosity.

The build only uses Vaal Haste. So, don’t activate haste aura.



BOOTS

Use your boots to get elemental res and lots of movement speed.


The gems are: Purity of Elements, Skitterbots, Convocation and Enlighten.


If Enlighten is too expensive, you can use a Conqueror’s Efficiency jewel in your passive tree.




WEAPON

The best in slot wand has +1 to spells & minions and “Minions are Aggressive”. But you can get aggressive on your helmet instead.


The gems are: Divergent Desecrate, Divergent Flesh Offering and Bone Offering.


Divergent Desecrate spawns 6 corpses which helps to feed both Offerings.



SHIELD

For the shield, Victario’s Charity combined with Necromantic Aegis will give your spectres frenzy and power charges.


The gems are: level 10 Cast When Damage Taken linked to level 12 Immortal Call.


And unlinked Flame Dash.


I have Cast When Damage Taken set to about 30% of my life pool.



AMULET

The best in slot amulet is Ashes of the Stars.


But you can also use a Shaper or Redeemer amulet with mana reserve efficiency instead.


Anoint the amulet with Death Attunement to get +1 spectre.




RINGS

The ring on the left should be Profane Proxy socketed with Divergent Frostbite.


And the rare ring can be used for extra stats (dex)




BELT

For the belt, you must have Leash of Oblation to use double Offerings. Don't skip this!

>>> Watch 3.18 Carrion Golems Necromancer build guide video on YouTube <<<


About the Build

Carrion Golems Necromancer

ABOUT

This build is easy to play and balanced towards survivability. But, it still has good DPS and clear speed.
You can start the build with a low budget, and scale into the endgame with more investment.
It scales physical damage, so you can’t do physical reflect maps.


GOLEMS

Carrion Golems are good for both mapping and bossing because of their high attack speed and good AI.
They are permanent minions, so you don’t need to keep re-summoning them, like skeles or SRS.
Golem Commander, the Anima Stone and Primordial jewels are used to get 4 golems.



TRIPLE CURSE

The build use 3 curses to scale damage.
Two curses are socketed in Vixen’s Entrapment, which will auto-cast them when you self-cast another curse.
The self-cast curse is Punishment, which is socketed in the shield.


SUPPORT MINIONS

For support minions, the build uses:
• a carnage chieftain for frenzy changes,
• a host chieftain for power charges,
• a pale seraphim to debuff enemies,
• an animate guardian with Kingmaker,
• 8 zombies to scale the carrion golem’s damage.


SURVIVABILITY

For survivability, the build stacks armour to reduce physical damage, and block chance to avoid attacks and spells.
For sustain, there is ES recovery when you block.



High Budget Single Target Focus

ASCENDANCY

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



PANTHEON

Major: Lunaris
Minor: Shakari


Gear, Gems Links & Flasks

HELMET

For the helmet, use an Elder Bone Helmet with +2 or +3 to minion gems, and Minion Life. This will help keep the support minions alive.
For more DPS, look for increased physical damage taken.
Note that you should avoid minion damage because it reduces the support minions’ life by 25%.

Enchance: Assassin's Mark effect, Carrion Golem damage



Please check my Animate Guardian guide for details on his equipment.



BODY

The body armour should have +2 to socketed gems. For example, a rare armour with +1 int and +1 active.
You can also save currency with a Skin of the Lords. Just make sure the mod doesn’t have a negative effect on the build.



If you prefer Stone Golems, you can swap them in instead.

*Behead support also works with Carrion Golems. So, you can swap Multistrike to Behead when you’re mapping.



GLOVES

Vixen’s Entrapment gives you an extra curse, and auto-casts any socketed curses.

Enchant: Reflection



The self-cast curse is Punishment, which is socketed in the shield.



BOOTS

Windshriek gives you an extra curse

Enchance: Life regen, movement speed



For a DPS boost, you could swap Defiance Banner to Dread.



WEAPON

The best weapon has the trigger craft, and +2 to golems, which you can get from: +1 to minions, spells or physical spells.
A cheap alternative is Cold Iron Point for +3 to physical spells.



For a DPS boost, you could swap Bone Offering to Flesh.


SHIELD

For your shield, I recommend Aegis Aurora.





AMULET

For the amulet, use Ashes of the Stars.
The most important stat is gem quality.

The anointment is Golem Commander for +1 golem.





RINGS

Because the build uses a lot of uniques, use the rings to get as much life and resistances as possible.





BELT

Use a stygian vise or darkness enthroned to socket more ghastly eye jewels.

About the Build

Carrion Golems & Zombies + Explodey Animate Guardian

ABOUT

This build focuses on fast map clearing instead of bossing DPS. It also uses a special Animate Guardian to explode entire packs of monsters.
The build is comfortable to play because the minions are permanent, and you don’t need to resummon them while mapping. It’s also controller friendly because there are only 4 skills needed.
It scales physical damage, so you can’t do physical reflect maps.


GOLEMS & ZOMBIES

This build is different to other Carrion Golem builds because both the Golems and Zombies are in the body armour. So, actually the build uses two 5-link minions.
The overall damage is similar to 6-link golems with unlinked zombies, but spreading the damage over 12 minions makes it more consistent for mapping.


SUPPORT MINIONS

For support minions, the build uses:
• a carnage chieftain for frenzy changes
• a host chieftain for power charges
• a demon harpy to debuff enemies
• an explodey animate guardian


SURVIVABILITY

For survivability, the build can:
• Completely avoid taking any damage with high block chance and shields,
• Reduce the enemy’s damage with minion taunt,
• Reduce physical damage taken with armour,
• Sustain itself with Energy Shield recovery.


EXPLODEY ANIMATE GUARDIAN

The explodey Animate Guardian is an important part of the build. It uses several mechanics to explode entire packs of monsters.
Gravebind counts nearby kills as the AG's kills.
This will proc explosions from the body armour and weapon, which are scaled by your “increased minion damage” and his Elder helmet.
Any enemies that don’t die from the explosions will take dot damage from Legacy of Fury and the essence mod on the weapon.
Lastly, Replica Victario's Charity will generate endurance charges from the explosions.

• 1x Medium: 4-5 points. Feasting Fiends, Renewal, Hulking Corpses
• 1x Small: Enduring Composure
• Fortress Covenant


NOTES:
You don't need all 3 notables on your large jewel!
Vicious Bite + Renewal or Vicious Bite + Feasting Fiends is good, too (easy to self craft with harvest)



JEWELS

• The Anima Stone
• 3x Primordial Eminence




ASCENDANCY

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



PANTHEON

Major: Lunaris
Minor: Abberath
For the pantheon, I like to use Lunaris for reducing damage, and Abberath for burning ground immunity.
It’s especially important if you use Searing Exarch influence and it stops burning ground from stopping Energy Shield recharge.


Gear, Gems Links & Flasks

GENERAL

Here is an overview of suggested gear, including gems & links and examples.
Overall, look for the highest life and resistance mods on your rare items.
Then look for these specific mods.



HELMET

If you have “Minions are Aggressive” on your wand, use an Elder helmet to get the Minion Life mod.
If you don’t have Aggressive on your wand, use Maw of Mischief instead.

Enchant: Carrion Golem buff effect.

The gems are: Animate Guardian, Raise Spectre, Anomalous Feeding Frenzy and Minion Speed.

Normally the AG is pretty slow. So, we need Minion Speed to make sure he can keep up with the golems and zombies.



The explodey Animate Guardian is an important part of the build. It uses several mechanics to explode entire packs of monsters.
You can check my Animate Guardian guide for details on his equipment.



BODY

For the body armour, I recommend Skin of the Lords to get +2 to socketed gems.

The gems are: Carrion Golem, Raise Zombie, Awakened Minion Damage, Increased Critical Damage, Awakened Melee Physical Damage and Awakened Brutality.


This build is different to other Carrion Golem builds because both the Golems and Zombies are in the body armour. So, actually the build uses two 5-link minions.
The overall damage is similar to 6-link golems with unlinked zombies, but spreading the damage over 12 minions makes it more consistent for mapping.



GLOVES

The gloves are Vixen’s Entrapment to get an extra curse, but we won’t be socketing any curse gems here.

Enchant: Reflection/Grave

The gems are: Convocation, Flame Dash and Life Tap.

The 4th socket can be used for anything you like. I just used a portal gem.





BOOTS

Use your boots to get elemental resistance and movement speed. You can also get Brittle from exarch influence.

Enchant: Movement speed

The gems are: Tempest Shield, Skitterbots, Determination and War Banner.

War Banner scales all minion damage, including the explosions from the AG.





WEAPON

The best in slot wand has +1 to spells & minions and “Minions are Aggressive”. But it’s much cheaper to get aggressive on your helmet instead. Also needs Trigger mod.

The gems are: Life Tap, Desecrate, and Divergent Bone Offering.

Keep Desecrate at level 1 to reduce the cost.





SHIELD

For the shield, I recommend Aegis Aurora for Energy Shield recovery.

The gems are: Molten Shell, Assassin’s Mark and Increased Duration.

You only need to use Assassin’s Mark on bosses and other dangerous monsters.





AMULET

The best in slot amulet is Ashes of the Stars, but the character in the showcase uses a Rare Amulet with +1 to all skill gems.

Anoint the amulet with Golem Commander to get an extra golem.





RINGS

The ring on the left should be Profane Proxy socketed with Vulnerability. This turns the curse into an aura, so you don’t have to self-cast it.



The Rare Ring can be used for extra life or stats. And I like to add Minion Speed.




BELT

Use a Stygian Vise or Darkness Enthroned to socket more ghastly eye jewels.





RECOMMENDED FLASKS

For the flasks, I’m using
Life with Bleed Removal
Basalt with Extra Armour
Quicksilver with Curse Effect
Quart with Freeze Removal
Rumi’s Concoction



Life: Instant Recovery when on Low Life + Bleed removal
Prefix: Startled, Frightened, Alarmed, Terrified, Panicked
Suffix: of Sealing, of Alleviation, of Allaying, of Assuaging

Utility flasks: Reduced charges or Increased duration
Prefix: Apprentice's, Scholar's, Practitioner's, Brewer's, Chemist's

Key features: Animate Weapon Necromancer

ABOUT

Animate Weapon Necromancer is designed for survivability while still having good DPS and clear speed.
It scales physical damage, so you shouldn’t do physical reflect maps.



ANIMATE WEAPON

Animate Weapon is a spell that animates a weapon on the ground as a flying minion.
It can animate Lingering Blades that are left behind by Bladefall, or identified melee weapon dropped as loot.
They are temporary minions with about one and a half minutes duration. So, you will need to resummon them during mapping and long boss fights.
But don’t worry because the build has enough survivability to let you resummon even while a boss is hitting you.



SURVIVABILITY

This build is designed for survivability. It uses the following defensive layers:
• Armour stacking
• More than 80% ele res
• Capped attack and spell block
• Elemental ailment immunity
• Critical Strike immunity
• ES recovery when blocking
• A temporary damage shield
• Reducing enemy’s damage.



SUPPORT MINIONS

For support minions, the build uses:
• carrion golem
• carnage chieftain for frenzy changes
• host chieftain for power charges
• pale seraphim and demon harpy to debuff enemies
• animate guardian with Kingmaker

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



PANTHEON

Major: Lunaris
Minor: Shakari


Gear, Gems Links & Flasks

HELMET

For the helmet, use an Elder Bone Helmet with +2 or +3 to minion gems, and Minion Life. For more DPS, look for increased physical damage taken.

Enchant: Animate Weapon damage/duration

Note that you should avoid minion damage because it reduces the support minions’ life by 25%.



Please check my Animate Guardian guide for details on his equipment.



BODY

For the body armour, I recommend the Brass Dome.

For more DPS, you can corrupt it for +2 Duration.

Use your crafting bench and Harvest to get the correct colours.



For endgame bosses, swap melee splash to multistrike.


NOTE: You can craft the +2 Brass dome yourself. You can also use 2b1g3r.
1. Buy cheap Brass dome 50c
2. Bench craft 6 sockets
3. Colour 2b1g (50 chrome)
4. Corrupt in temple (can buy chronicle 1ex)
5. If you get duration, bench craft 6 link.



GLOVES

For the gloves, Vixen’s Entrapment gives an extra curse, and auto-casts any socketed curses.



The self-cast curse is Enfeeble, which is socketed in the shield.



BOOTS

I recommend crafting your boots with Essence of Envy to get Chaos res.



Anomalous Dread Banner makes nearby enemies deal less damage.



WEAPON

For the wand, the important mods are: +1 to minions and spells. You can also get minion damage and attack speed. It also needs an open suffix to craft trigger.



Desecrate must be socketed before Bone Offering.



SHIELD





AMULET

The amulet is Ashes of the Stars with Death Attunement.
Quality is the most important stat.





RINGS

The rings are used to get as much life and res as possible.
Highly recommend crafting Minion Speed.





BELT

Darkness enthroned to socket 2 ghastly eye jewel with 75% increased effect.


Put your best ghastly eyes jewels here!



RECOMMENDED FLASKS



Life: Instant Recovery when on Low Life + Bleed removal
Prefix: Startled, Frightened, Alarmed, Terrified, Panicked
Suffix: of Sealing, of Alleviation, of Allaying, of Assuaging

Utility flasks: Reduced charges or Increased duration

You need the mana flask for summoning Animate Weapons!


Trade Links

Helmet:

It's better to buy a basic one. Bench craft 6 sockets, then colour the sockets, then corrupt in temple, then link. If you buy +2 duration already corrupted it's very hard to get correct colours.

About the Build

Autobomber Animate Guardian

ABOUT

This is a specialist build for map clearing, which also does well in Heist and Delve.
It’s very easy to play because you just run around while the entire screen explodes.
Actually, the build is a revised version of the infernal legion AG from 3.16. I made the gear much cheaper and the explosions much bigger.
But, it has two downsides:
• There’s not enough damage to kill guardian and endgame bosses.
• And the only defence is the Proximity Shield from the support spectres.


INFERNAL LEGION

The Animate Guardian burns nearby enemies with Infernal Legion.
The damage is scaled by Infernal Legion’s gem level and other support gems, as well the AG’s Cane of Kulemak and helmet.
He also has 88% fire resistance and 11% life regeneration, so he doesn’t burn himself to death.


AUTOBOMBING

Enemies that die from burning will explode thanks to the AG’s Storm’s Gift + Inpulsa’s Broken Heart. The explosions can chain off themselves to kill even more monsters.
And any enemies that don’t die from the explosions will take burning damage from the AG’s Legacy of Fury.


SUPPORT MINIONS

For the support minions, there are:
• Three Undying Evangelist spectres that give proximity shields.
• Skitterbots that become moving curse auras thanks to Profane Proxy.
• Stone Golem for extra life regeneration.

PASSIVE TREE & POB PASTEBIN



POB PASTEBIN
https://pobb.in/4p-ZByMTWUyc


MASTERY
Minion Masteries
1. Minions have +8% elemental resistance

Life Masteries
5. +50 to Maximum Life
6. 10% increased Maximum Life / 10% reduced Life Recovery

Mana Mastery
7. 15% increased Mana Reservation Eff



CLUSTER JEWELS

The most important passives are Minion Life Regeneration to keep the AG alive.
There’s also a lot of Minion Leech, so the AG can recover life from the explosions.

2x large: Feasting Fiends, Renewal
4x medium: Feating Fiends, Renewal
2x small: Surging Vitality
1x Kitava's Teaching
1x Fortress Covenant





JEWELS

In the other jewel sockets, I’m using Cobalt Jewels instead of Ghastly Eyes, so I don’t need to use a minion skill to activate the damage.

• Cobalt: Player life, Minion Life/damage




ASCENDANCY

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



PANTHEON

Major: Lunaris
Minor: Abberath
For the pantheon, I like to use Lunaris for reducing damage, and Abberath for burning ground immunity. It’s especially important if you use Searing Exarch influence.


Gear, Gems Links & Flasks

GENERAL

Here is an overview of suggested gear, including gems & links and examples.
Overall, look for the highest life and resistance mods on your rare items.
Then look for the specific mods.



HELMET

I have my support Spectres in a helmet with Minion Life and +3 to Minion Gems. The other mods aren’t important.
The gems are: Raise Spectre, Meat Shield, Increased Area of Effect and Increased Duration.
This combination makes the Proximity Shields really big and always nearby.





BODY

For the body armour, I have Fenumus’ Shroud to make Aspect of the Spider stronger.
The gems are: Vaal Summon Skeletons, Minion Damage, Predator, Stone Golem, Multistrike and Added Fire.
Vaal Skeletons are only used for bosses or when surrounded by rippy monsters like in Delve.





GLOVES

The gloves are Breathstealer anointed with Ravenous Horde.
And the gems are: Cast When Damage Taken, Immortal Call and Convocation. All level 1.
This gem combination will teleport the Shield spectres to me when I get hit.
The 4th gem is unlinked Flame Dash.



UNLINKED




BOOTS

The boots are Corpsewalker to create corpses while moving. This activates Plaguebringer and also feeds Disciple of Kitava.
The gems are: Purity of Elements, Skitterbots, Phase Run and Increased Duration.
Phase Run gives the build phasing without needing a quartz flask.





WEAPON

The AG’s gem level doesn’t scale his damage in this build, so I’m using a +3 support gem staff to make the support gems stronger. It also has Aspect of the Spider.
The gems are: Anomalous Animate Guardian, Infernal Legion, Awakened Minion Dagame, Awakened Increased Area of Effect, Elemental Army and Cruelty.
The explosions will activate the Cruelty buff, which then increase the damage from Infernal Legion.





AMULET

For the amulet, I recommend something with minion damage, and anoint it with Whispers of Doom for +1 curse.





RINGS

Both rings are Profane Proxy, socketed with Elemental Weakness and Flammability. This makes both Skitterbots into curse auras, so I don’t need to self-cast anything.





BELT

For the belt, I have a Stygian Vise with a Ghastly Eye Jewel that has Corrupted Blood immunity.





RECOMMENDED FLASKS

My flasks are Blood of the Karui, Granite with Extra Armour, Sulphur with Bleed Immunity, Amethyst with Poison Immunity and a Quick Silver.



Life: Instant Recovery when on Low Life + Bleed removal
Prefix: Startled, Frightened, Alarmed, Terrified, Panicked
Suffix: of Sealing, of Alleviation, of Allaying, of Assuaging

Passive Tree Progression


Notes:

2. Quick Recovery & Mastery: +50 life
3. Lord of the Dead
4. Heart and Soul
5. Cruel Preparation & Mastery: 10% increase life

Twink Gear

If this is not your league starter and you want to get to maps really quickly. I recommend the following gear. You should buy everything before you start so you can save time. Some of the gems are quest rewards so you can skip buying them. Have everything in your bag so you can start using it as soon as you reach the correct level.


*Raise Spectre and Stone Golem are quest rewards



*Predator and Minion Damage are quest rewards
**Buy a level 1 Vaal Summon Skeletons






*Flame Dash is a quest reward



Sidehebreath helps a lot with early mana regen



Dead Reckoning for Skele mages. They're a bit better than skele warriors because they hit with projectiles.

Kingmaker AG (3.19)

Leer cast gives your other minions 50% increased damage.


10% life regen from Gruthkul


Gloves

Make the AG immune to Corrupted blood (drops in delve physical encounter). Exarch mod: Extinguish enemies (prevent enemy from applying elemental ailments).


If you use Necromancer, you can add Intimidate or Unnerve mod with Exarch.


Boots
Death's Door for bleed immunity. It's difficult to stop AG from moving, so he will take a lot of damage from blood.


Alternative: rare boots with Sapped ground (enemies deal 10% less damage). crafted mode is avoid bleeding.


Kingmaker for crit multiplier, culling strike, fortify, item rarity.


Dying Breath AG (low cost)

Dying Breath AG is a good low cost AG. Staff + helmet give a nice damage boost and the boots will give a movespeed boost. The body armour and gloves give the AG some extra survivability.

You can use this AG for any minion build.

Each item will cost about 1c. They are common uniques so you can also get them yourself easily.



If you are not using Fleshcrafter, you can get extra damage from Legacy of Fury. Scorch is a -10% ele res debuff for any nearby enemies. You can get -15% ele res with 50% effect.




Kingmaker AG (high cost)

Many minion builds scale crit damage, so Kingmaker is the strongest damage boost. It also give culling strike (kill enemy at 10% life) and fortification (10% less damage take).

Keep your AG alive with Mask of the Stitched Demon + body armour with 10% life gained as ES. Mask of the Stitched Demon gives your AG 1% life regen for 500 ES.
Example: AG with 100k life and 10% life as ES.
AG has 10k ES and will get 20% life regen = 20k per second regen!

Even with lots of regen, bleed damage can kill your AG. Especially in Sirus fight. I like to use gloves with Corrupted Blood mod and Infinite Pursuit boots so the AG never takes any bleeding damage.



You can also use lesser exarch currency to add unnerve (10% increased spell damage taken) or intimidate (10% increased attack damage taken).


Note for Fleshcrafter users (Skele mages): AG has 20% base chaos damage, so he will get 40% life converted to ES.
Example: AG with 100k life -> 60k life and 40k ES. If you use Mask of the Stitched Demon, your AG will have 80% life regen (48k per second!).
If you have 10% life gained as ES on body, your AG will have 50k ES and 100% life regen.

Another option for body armour is Garb of Emphemeral. When the AG is close to the enemy, the enemy can't do any critical hits.


You can find Corrupted Blood gloves in delve: Nesting Ground with physical items mod.


Explodey AG (physical)



Gravebind: nearby kills count as the AG's kill


Crusader + Synth weapon: enemies have 40-45% chance to explode


Explode damage is scaled by "increased minion damage" from gear and passives. Also use Elder helmet


Legacy of Fury: burn nearby enemies when monsters die


Replica Victario's Charity: hits from explosion give endurance changes. kills from explosions give frenzy charges


Craft synth weapon with Essence of Delirium for extra damage when explosion hits. Add double damage mod with crafting bench.


You can craft the helmet with


Save currency by crafting Mask of the Stitched Demon



You can save some currency by craft it yourself.

You need:
Temple with Apex of Ascension
Mask of Spirit Drinker
Vial of Summoning


Open the temple and put the Mask and Vial in the the sacrifice table.




Support AG - Sin Eater



Alternative*





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 active/+1 intelligence body armour

You can fossil craft your body armour.
You need:
Warlord base with item level 80+
Faceted
Dense
Pristine
Corroded
4-socket resonator


You have a 1 in 5 chance to hit +1/+1.

CraftofExile

+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




+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)






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

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.
