OVERVIEW


Pros:

+ Insane Clearspeed
+ Easy Uber Lab and Atziri
+ Great with an auramancer
+ Can do ALL map mods
+ Insanely fast and smooth leveling using Poet wands
+ Great party build ( EE / Double Curse / Meatshields )
+ Insane defence with MoM, hybrid life / es and 30 meatshields around you taunting enemies! ( Get abyss jewel with taunt! )

Cons:

- Poet Pen Cost ( Level as SRS untill you can afford them )
- You want to keep Bone Offering and Rumi's Concoction up 100% of the time


PASSIVE TREE

REQUIRED UNIQUES:




You can start leveling really smoothly with one of them ( SRS Setup )


PLAYSTYLE:


Tag everything with kinetic blast's curse on hit while your minions do all the hard work for you.

Cast Desecrate -> Offering on bosses if he doesn't spawn minions.

Great party build as well! You apply -50% lightning resistances / cold resistances ( depending on damage on ring ) and -50% fire resistances to everything! Also you have 30 meatshields walking around :)


ASCENDANCY POINTS:


Mistress of Sacrifice -> Flesh Binder -> Soul Weaver -> Commander of Darkness


PANTHEON


Major - Soul of the Brine King
Minor - Soul of Gruthkul


BANDITS


KILL THEM ALL!


STATS


SKILL DPS
Coming soon!


GEAR


My current gear ( Level 80 ):


Softcore: Bones of Ullr

Get either Cold or Lightning damage on your ring or amulet, depending on who you party with. I keep a Lightning ring on standby.

If you can't afford a 5 link Vis Mortis yet then buy a 5 link ES chest with 90+ life and 80%+ resists for a few chaos.

[Removed by Support]



Atleast try to get the ES on hit mod on this one, with kinetic blast + gmp + pierce from projectile weakness I get full energy shield after one kinetic blast shot :S


ABYSS JEWELS



One with: Minions have 8% chance to Taunt on Hit with Attacks
One with: Minions have 8% chance to Hinder Enemies on Hit with Spells
Bonus: 20% increased Minion Damage if you've used a Minion Skill Recently

Bonus: Minions have 6% Increased Attack / Cast speed

Search for any jewel with these three to four of these mods!


SPECTRES


We will use Solar Guards for this build! You can find them in Solaris Temple Level 1 ( Act 8 )
They sometimes shoot a huge beam that oneshots even blue packs ( at least for me )

Use Desecrate in Solaris Temple Level 1 and look for a Solar Guard while holding you A-Button on the keyboard. Afterwards make sure you use desecrate in the highest level area your desecrate allows and resummon them!

Going great so far, almost level 60 I don't think I've ever leveled this fast and safe lol
Hello, this looks fun !

I have a question, does srs / skelly provide enough dps with only 3L ?
What about spectre can they survive without Soul Weaver ?

Anyway i'll try this build didn't knew we could summon Srs with poet's :D


edit : Oh one more thing why are you using cold damage / lightning / fire ? is it because of elemental equilibrium ?

DPS will be more than enough, I'm currently destroying everything in maps :D
We do take Soul Weaver, updating guide soon.
This looks super amusing. Do you have a video to show a bit of the gameplay yet? What spectres are you using?
first time witch, but what do you mean by - Flesh Offering "( too lazy to self-cast )"; I feel I am using Flesh Offering incorrectly?

Thanks!
It's an awesome QOL to put offering in the weapon :D just spam and run

You see a pack ? point your wand => pouf dead and go next.

I'm only act 6 now but so far so good. Malachai melted, i need more hp obviously and better gear but it's really really funny.

Vanguard are nice spectres for bosses btw
Looks awesome, will do this as a second character once you have updated it a bit! Good luck.
Looks interesting, think I'll be trying this one out. Question though, when you list the gems when you say 20/0 do you mean lv20 0% quality, if so, why not 20/20? And if I were to get 20/20 gems or atleast 20% quality ones, which gems should I get 20% on first?

Huge update! Take a look! :D
