consider necromantic aegis although its useful to be able to clear maps with melee skills in case of primary spectre death. Ideal stats required.

update 1 2/12 2013:

Initially upon entering cemetery the burning miscreations died quickly while tanking monsters so I changed the strategy to be more like the one use din Lunaris which relies on fast clear speed by simply running past monsters, killing them in the process. This turned out well and besides keeping minions alive there is the added benefit of increased map clear speeds, a couple of notes on this tactic:

*Necromantic aegis is not possible while running like a maniac in maps, you'll want maximum player tanking ability.

*Make your raids in increments and remember to pause in an empty corner of the map from time to time to replenish minion life, vitality aura+purity are the main auras, clarity if you have enough mana.

*Its recommended to have a cleared map of lunaris up while entering end game maps as you'll likely need to resurrect miscreations at one point or another which takes a min or two, but considering the fact that a map is cleared in 3-5 min its still a net gain compared to all other builds.

This is the most powerful build in the game at the moment, and i expect some kind of nerf to happen soon.

update 2:

switched skelli totem for leap slam and mf for more defense as it seems not to be working with miscreation burn dmg anyway. Leap slam did much to improve clear speeds in lunaris but requires much defensive gear and there is always the risk of desynch, use enduring cry if needed, always carry grantie flasks and pots with +armor. Using vul/enf curses.
