Anyone have experience in using lithomancer ?
My SO keep die in devel 4xx so I want try lithomancer. See that physical spell so I can use CC and echo?


Do you have enough leech?

Lithomancer is not good. The cast time is slow even with spell echo (and you need pierce).

I just got this

another stupid question :
"Helmet build uses Hatred + Skitter + bonechill.Skitter + bonechill"
So the link is generosity+ hatred+ skitter + bonechill ?


You will have to use Avatar of Fire to counteract the 'cold damage to spells' mod on that helmet, or your EE will not work properly.

And yes, the link would be Skitterbots + Bonechill Support + Hatred + Generosity (or preferably Aw. Generosity).


I was feeling that something was off, stupid of me not to realize the cold damage/EE contradiction.
Thank you : )

Hey there, here's a few things I managed to see from your POB:

You are using Unwavering Stance, this kills your Lunaris Pantheon (which when upgraded, is very important for survival since projectiles can chain, and we have a lot of minions so it can be quite deadly without it) and your Jade Flask also becomes useless. I would unsocket those points and get more HP, especially the HP nodes that have chaos resistance around Purity of Flesh.

I would suggest grabbing a ghastly jewel with a bit more chance to blind/taunt than 4% and 3%, at least 5% of each should be vastly better - minion movement speed is really important for crabbies as they aren't as fast as Syndicate Ops so you can also try out using feeding frenzy on your crabbies instead of Predator and see if you like that better (switch to Predator for bossing if needed).

Your raise spectre gem reaches only level 26, making your crabbies only monster level 78, which is too underpowered for red maps (T16 is level 83, 5 levels above your spectres) - you should try to get them to at least level 80, if not higher. There are multiple ways to achieve this: +2 minion wand, +2 spectre lvl boots, +3 minion level helmet. Getting your spectres to high level is a lot more important than just stacking damage, here are example of those items:


I also can't seem to find a ring on your setup with frostbite on hit, this is pretty nice to have as your armageddon brand is constantly splashing all the mobs around with that curse, and it's pretty useful since it adds about 20-30% more DPS to your minions.

For more survivability, I would suggest removing all surging vitality small clusters and replacing them with "inc max life 7% + minion dmg" cobalt jewels, which will save you 6 points, then allocating 5 of them towards Sanctuary node for more block chance.

Also, not sure if it just wasn't displayed correctly but your awakened melee phys gem is level 1 and no quality. Quality is important as it makes them have 10% chance to intimidate on hit, so more DPS.

Hope this helps, good luck!

I'm going to finish up this league by running the minion army build in SSF to see how far I can get. Wish me luck!

Also, great guide, you put a lot of work into this and I appreciate it!
Hello fellow Exiles,

I have several questions regarding my necromancer using Kays Full Spectre build.(love the build)
So I tried to be as close as possible to the guide but I´m still feeling squishy e.g. Sirus (currently can't beat A6).
First of all, I really like this build using Crabby spectres, but I feel like I have very poor DPS and survivability, therefore I hesitate to even try uber elder or something similar.
T14-T16, and Elder is running “ok” but not smooth, but that might be just my assumption.
Here are my possible ideas:

- Increase life pool
- Change diadem to 3 minion helmet
- Increase spectre lvl gem( 26)
Also I do want to avoid switch spectres to SO or similar, as I love my crabbies!
I would much appreciate some advice on how to “improve” my current necromancer
The current budget for an improvement is about 44 ex.
My profile should be public.

Many thanks in advance

For Awakened Vicious Projectile Support, every 1 quality increases 1% Physical Damage.

Does this increase apply to Minions? (If not, I probably won't bother increasing the quality.)

Would appreciate if you added a link to your POB code so I can take a look, otherwise it’s hard to see what would be wrong with the build. If you want, my previous post is also in assistance to a Kay’s Crabbie build, maybe some of that info could be helpful to you.

As far as I’m concerned, quality increases DPS.

I'm pretty stoked - this is my first L100 character (with a massive pile of help from a lucky Headhunter drop). Running Pure Spectres with Double Cluster setup.

Many thanks for the build, Kay!

All I have left now is probably the 8-link Helmet but is there anything else I can be pushing on my build?

Need a little help.

I am at level 89 and am playing Kay's Army with FAS's. My DPS seems workable but I do die once in a while. The problem is that I am leveling at a snails pace because of these deaths. I am just starting red maps and am not sure what to do.



I think that I have everything thing I need to switch over to 'Pure Specters' except for the +1 chest (only have a couple of exalts, so this may take awhile).



So my question is, what can I do to fix my premature death issues and when should I switch over to 'Pure Specters'?

My POB is: https://pastebin.com/Xz29QuiM
