[3.24] Arakaali's fang CI / Max Block | All Content Viable

Hello, im Igor this is my take on Arakaali's Fang Unique Dagger.
I have been playing this build for so many leagues that by now i consider myself a spider enjoyer.

OBS: If something is missing, not working or need better explanation let me know in the comments.

NECROPOLIS UPDATE: no big changes, can be played just like last league.


-Decent Clear Speed
-Chaos Pops (sounds good)
-Can afk tank most content.
-Can be started with low budget.
-Scale well into Endgame.


-Endgame items can be very expensive to upgrade.
-The build cannot be played before level 53.
-Sometimes can be clunky to resummon minions.


Normal Lab : Vile Bastion
Easy Sustein while leveling.

Cruel Lab : Profane Bloom
Automate a curse and start Popping.

Merciless Lab : Unholy Authority
Second Curse going into maps

Uber Lab : Void Beacon
No more tanky rares with regen

(Use Blasphemy Enfeeble to automate Profane Bloom)

-For Bossing swap to -=The Squire=- desecrate TWO times on your feet and kill a worm then weapom swap back to aegis.
(Use Haste instead of Blasphemy Enfeeble)

you can and you should do modifications as you like... need more damage? drop some defensive nodes to get more damage... need more life? drop damage to get more life... dont like the setups?try to use another gem, or support...remember you are free to do whatever you want this is just a guide to help you get something similar not equal.

gigachad build guide
For flasks, I don't see anything mentioned and PoB has an empty flask spot. Can I just run any other flask there? maybe a quartz for phasing

Edit: just saw the brutal restraint/traitor makes sense now

You need more damage. Im looking at the best possible layout in a simularcrum wave 30 showcase and its barely 4 rewards.
Pretty sick build, still leveling to 97 right now and it feels great in maps/invitations. Is there anything you'd recommend for countering ground degens/general DOTs while bossing?

i use consecrated ground on the charms to deal with dots a bit easyer
enduring cry feels like a life flask for this build with the second wind gem
also vaal discipline if necessary

i saw that u are using defiance banner instead of enduring cry however you can still use enduring cry in place of molten shell instead if u want to try that.

the mastery "10% of armour also applies to chaos damage taken from hits" does nothing for the build, you are already immune to chaos, i recommend using the "100% increased armour and energy shield from body armour"

Thanks a bunch, will try out what you've suggested.
Have a question about the summoning of the spiders.
You say u kill them with what?
from the gems I only see flamedash or if u use ur default attack?

Yeah at the beginning of a map you can either use flame dash or the autoattack to summon the spiders, then to keep them around you can use desecrate in packs of enemies to resummon when the enemies die/chaos pops occur.

I tried your build, it is great. I have a few questions:

What are you doing at this exact time stamp https://youtu.be/e2YYkr8YmdU?t=164 ? Desecrate x1 (2?) + Jar + flame dash on a worm x1 ? I am in the same situation sometimes with Kosis in wave +25 and I struggle to refresh my spiders and kill him (I end up doing clunky things such as using my portals to refresh my jar and try to re-summon them).

In this simulacrum showcase, are you running multistrike or melee splash ? And are you summoning the spiders with The Squire or Aegis ?

What is the cap of accuracy for minions ? I can't see the stat on the PoB and I don't know if I should keep stacking more accuracy or go for damage mods.

Thanks a lot !
