I am really looking forward to this sceptre because I currently run a similar build on Xbox.

Instead of the sceptre I use Dark Pact to kill my skeletons. It's lvl 1 and linked to spell echo, faster casting and chain. It also enables EE with an "add lightning damage to your spells" mod on your gear

With that setup, a profane wand (with additional increased cast speed), flesh offering, sliver flask and 5 Abyss Jewels with "10% increased cast speed when a minion died recently" I can cast DP over 10 times a second.

In 3.3 I will switch the wand for that sceptre and the shield.

I currently use a totem to cast the skellies. With that totem you have to use From Dust because otherwise it will produce Skellies faster than you can kill them. I believe the sceptre plus shield combo will help a lot with that so I can produce and kill more than 5 Skellies a second.




Dark pact is actually a great idea still.

I am trying it out with spell totem (spell totem // chain // dark pact) vs bosses that have multiple phases and dont get 1-shot by vaal skellies.

That's pretty pointless. DP has a cast time of .5 with an additional penalty of 30% because of the totem. That's to slow to make a big difference IMO

It's still great for EE and if you skip the totem you can add a curse on hit setup or blind which is also great.

Skeleton Necromancer Ascendancy. It got changed one or two big patches ago. Let's you cast 3 at a time without cool down. 5 with from dust and cool down
Also I think the build should be able to do Uber elder. I got him and shaper to 25% though it went to shit due to DOT everywhere

Any advice for leveling this build? Looks like a lot of fun so I'm ditching my trapper to roll with this.
Starting a league with this what should I replace empower with? Any low budget recommendations until the bis gear is reached?
Any reason why you passed on the mana nodes behind MoM? Or is that a PoB glitch?

I have been theorycrafting and testing this build. So far just using the shield, going to try two maces. I have been using ignite prolif to help with clearing, not sure if it is worth but seems good.

I am also thinking solar guards are best supporting minions, but I hate spectres for whatever reason (even though srs is my favorite build in the game). I was thinking golems too, plus they are super tanky and I think if you resummon one while already at max will trigger the maligaro's lens heal, and the golems have a ton of hp. Might be worth testing on your end since you are setup for that.

I'll do my best to check back in for any discussion or updates, currently distracting myself with some poet's pen + arc.
