[3.8] Necro - Skeleton Infernal Legion. Like RF, only better

Still trying out the different combos, but the idea stands.


Summon skeleton - Infernal Legion - Minion dmg -

Last 3 slots can be any of these:
- elemental army (exposure -10% resist, better max res so they stay up longer); probably best in slot disregarding the sheet dps
- ele focus
- controlled destruction
- burning damage support
- inc aoe for faster clear

Storm brand or any non fire skill to proc EE, plus Curse on hit and flammability and/or ele weakness.

Grabbed minion instability for extra gib.

10 skellies doing xxx k burning DPS (need to fine tune)

up to 30 more with vaal skeleton.

I am thinking this will probably be higher DPS than any other summoner build (to be confirmed).

At super high cast speed and well geared char, SRS might have better potential. But so far I am leaning towards skellies because:
- skellies spawn at your cursor; SRS spawn at your feet and waste time travelling to target.
- we summon 3 skellies per click. Leaving us some time to cast storm brand, offering, positioning, etc.


Mandatory item:
- The Triad gloves (4 reds) to convert our skellies and minions into pure fire.

BIS:
- maybe 6L multimod bow with +1 to all gems, +2 support?
- Either that or wand/shield to shield charge faster.

Still need to fine tune. Will update more.

Infernal legion deals 1316 dot at lvl 20
(Unmodified by minion life)

RF deals 1542 dot at lvl 20, PLUS 20% of your hp. A geared rf char should have around 8-9k hp. So another 1800 dot on top of this, comes up to be around 3300 dot.


Infernal legion scales minion damage only.

RF scales fire and burning dmg bonuses on your gear and tree.

Say you can get +300% fire/burning. Your base dot for RF becomes 13k dot.

Assuming you get +300% minion dmg. Your base dot for infernal legion is 5.3k per skellie

You can potentially deal more dmg than RF with just 3 skellies. 10 skellies deal 3x the dmg from RF. EXCLUDING ALL THE MELEE HITS THE SKELLIES ARE UNLEASHING IN THE MEANTIME. Also we take minion unstability to blow shit up at the end.

Dont forget if we pop vaal skellie, we get 30+ more skellie for even harder burst.

RF gets 1 more support gem, as we NEED to socket the minion gem first. But potentially I see this can be very significant dps. Still playing and lvling atm.
RF from Infernal Legion doesn't stack, only 1 source of burning damage from that gem applies.

Ah crap. Yeah I just saw the reddit post. Rip this build then. Thanks for the quick reply.

^^ This, which makes it great for leveling, but pretty shit later on since it doesn't scale and stack at all.
Infernal legion burn does not stack so your calculations with multiple skellies are unfortunately wrong
