[3.5] Relic Hunter (6L holy relic melee necro) End Game viable

Welcome!



This is a very short guide that uses Summon Holy Relic as the main skill.

Class: Necromancer

Required items:



Quick Explanation:
Summon Holy Relics and use static strike to proc their holy novas as you run through the map.

Detailed Explanation:

Spoiler



Summon Holy Relic is a minion that follows your character very closely and stays within melee range all of the time. It casts a holy nova spell (which is instant) every time you hit with a melee attack (though it has a short cooldown)

Geofri's Legacy allows you to have 2 relics, which means higher damage.

Static strike is linked with increased duration and it lasts for 8 seconds. The lightning bolts will proc the holy novas and clear packs of monsters very efficiently.

Weapons with Minion damage and "Trigger socketed spell when you use a spell" allow you to automatically cast offerings and summon skeletons while attacking.

Put everything together and you get a melee-esque summoner that can deal incredible damage.








My Gear:
Spoiler



Flasks:


Jewels:

And a careful planning jewel (int is converted into dex in area)

Gear Explanation:
Spoiler

fossil craft on a shaper weapon and try to get melee support mods like Maim. You will also need minion damage (bound fossil) and an open suffix to craft "trigger socketed spell"

- minion mod drops from temple. Look for open suffix and high base attack speed.

- mandatory

- look for +1 skills corruption. Ideally also want shaper mod with +1 active skill gems as well.

- extra damage for minions

- get fortify mod, life, and resists.

- need one ring with aspect of the spider. For extra damage, you can craft "shock for 4 seconds when you focus".

- get inc hatred effect corrupted mod. Look for high life and resists (ignore aspect of the cat)

- BIS (flask effect)- look for hatred corrupted mod

Jewels:

-damage with life (resists and dex are a bonus)
-From Dust (with necro ascendancy, you summon 5 at a time)
-Carefull Planning - provides much needed dex










Skill Tree:


Gem Links and setups
Spoiler


Chest
6L - Holy Relic - added fire/ele focus*1 - minion damage - Empower - controlled destruction - Inc area/Conc effect**

Elder boots with Fortify
static strike - faster attacks - leap slam - increased duration

gloves
enduring cry - CWDT - immortal call - curse (enfeeble or ele weakness)

Helmet:
3L - war banner - generosity - hatred
separate socket for clarity (if you need resists)

Skeleton Scepter
Summon skeleton - melee splash/ maim - minion damage

minion sceptre
desecrate - empower - bone offering/spirit offering



**Please note that Conc effect does not show up in Path of Building - I suspect its because the Holy relic itself does not have an AoE tag, however the holy nova spell they cast does have an AoE tag.

*depending on your gear, ele focus can do more than added fire support.



Leveling and Crafting
Spoiler


This is how I leveled the build:

start with summon raging spirits and then pickup summon skeletons. Get "From Dust" jewel as soon as possible and skeletons will carry you for a long time. At the very least you will pickup melee splash, minion damage, and melee physical.

You can also pickup holy relic, although at low levels it does not do much damage. use static strike and fortify with it. The combination of Holy relic + skeletons + static strike should easily carry you until you can use flame golems.

At 41, pickup 2 Clayshaper's and use

Place flame golem in the helm with lmp or gmp, minion damage,and spell echo or conc effect.

This will compliment the build really well and carry to level 60+

At 62, swap in
- you can keep the golems there. It's also a great time to pickup a tabula Rasa if you dont have one yet. Place the relics in the 6L.

I would lose the clayshapers and get minion damage sceptres like:


ideally, you will want to use The Anima Stone so that you have 2 flame golems still.

Keep leveling, and once your relics are high enough level (they scale extremely well with levels) you can slowly phase out the golems.

Work on a rare 6L chest with some life and resists.

The best chest to use is a shaper base with life, +1 active skill gems, and corrupted with +1 skills. If you want pure raw damage at the cost of life and resists, use a +2 skin of the loyal.

Good luck exiles!




Crafting:

The easiest way to get 90% + minion damage on a sceptre is from the temple of Atzoatle. You will need to upgrade the Hatchery to get this mod to drop on an item. Ideally, you want an item base with high attack speed (1.5) and an open suffix to craft "Trigger socketed spell when you use a skill"

The more difficult weapon to craft is a shaped minion weapon. You can use any base, however I found that maces (not sceptres) or swords should have the highest chance to get the mods we want.

You will need to use Bound Fossil to get up to 80% minion damage and at least 1 support mod like Level 20 Maim or Melee splash or Faster attacks. Keep in mind you have to avoid any cold damage (and fire if u are using added fire gem) on the weapon itself and you need an open suffix.





Change Log

January 14, 2019
indicated additional gem combinations for 6L holy relic. Specifically, ele focus can replace added fire once hatred aura is high enough level/ has enough increased effect. This can affect how you craft your weapons.

Cool build DreamScythe. If Holy Relic ever gets the AoE tag this will be even beefier with a double corrupt implicit.

Have you tried this with additional cooldown recovery gear ?

Cooldown recovery doesn't apply to the minion
