OP have any update as to how your progress is coming along?


I am currently not playing it in this league myself. But 3 from my guild are playing this very guide and some friends outside my guild too. Everything from story to Red Elder/Shaper is down. Sadly they're all too scared for Uber Elder.

Nice. Kudos on putting this guide together. It's great for mapping but I still pull out my hvy hitter for shaper, guardians, stuff like that.

Get your gems to 20/20 or even 21/20 (21/23 in incursion) and get your 6 Links and shaper and red elder are quite easy. Might use a convocation here and there but if you don't go brain afk everything but Uber Elder is very doable and has been completed by this build from multiple players. The only thing that is left is Uber Elder. I only know from 2 tries with this build but that was on 5 links and he got both down by about 60% or something. So it might be in reach too.

Spoiler


Playing this build with a slightly modified gem and tree setup, it's an absolute blast.
Question : I wanted to do this as a league starter, and am not sure I can get 2 dead reckoning on Day 1 of delve. How do I play instead till I can get those?

You can easily keep using SRS. The tree can stay exactly the same for that.
Keep them in a +1 fire wand. If you can't manage to get the jewels until 40+ put them into a +1 Fire staff with 4 to 5 Links and support them with just anything damage wise, doesn't really matter what as long as you keep melee splash.

Hey. so I've been planning to play a summoner build for a long time but I never could understand the mechanics that go into it. With magi skeletons a summoner build became much easier to understand. It's been amazing so far, most fun I've had in a long time but I have one question regarding resists. I've never had problems capping resists before but this time I do for some reason, it may be because of essence worm, or no alira. I see in your PoB that your resists are not capped either, is that just how this build goes? I haven't had problems because of them because obviously minions do the job for me but I'm curious how you go about it. I'm planning on using the 3 resist flasks as per a usual summoner build but I want to know if you can cap those resists any other way.

No, if you take a look at my gear you can clearly see I just have shitty gear. Just take my amulet. I only wear it because of life and I was lazy to upgrade it for 1c and I would be resist capped.
This build is ultra easy to resist-cap. You can cap yourself in most cases by 3-4 items. We have 6 to spread resists on.

So you need 22.5% on all resists per item to cap all. (ignoring overcap for elemental weakness)
So if you have 45% per resist on 3 items you're already capped.

Will need to wait for the patch notes. But feel free to ping again when patch notes are out :)
