98a59de0163dcfeb30f943b7e4644ad7


Pro/Con
Spoiler

Pro:
- Should be able to run most map mods
- Fun and unique build
- No reflect problems

Con:
- Doesn't fit the extremely fast clear speed meta
- Not great against bosses
- Chaos damage can be lethal because of the hybrid build, should be fine with some chaos res though.
- Can really start the build arround level 64
- Need uber lab ascendency




How it works
Spoiler

By keeping our max spectres on 1 we are able to resummon our spectre instantly proccing Beacon Of Corruption. Using Null's Inclination bow, linked with raise spectre, we will finnish off enemies with rain of arrows causing spectres to be resummoned proccing Beacon Of Corruption. Stacking alot of minion life and damage passive points we will do loads of damage with the caustic clouds.

Leveling
Spoiler

Use SRS, try to get Beacon of Corruption as fast as possible. I suggest using
Reverberation Rod Spiraled Wand with SRS + Multistrike + Minion Damage. Use melee splash until you can use multistrike.

Make sure to level Raise spectre and other gems while leveling as you're damage will greatly increase with higher level gems.

When you're level 60-69 try to get enough dex to wear Null's Inclination, if you have swap over to raise spectre. Make sure you get someone to do the cruel/merc ascendency for you. As the first 3 ascendencys will be required to maximize your spectre cloud damage.
