3.14 KING OF ALL SUMMONERS. Zombies & Skeletons & Spectres on STEROIDS! | League-Start to End-Game

I got a question
If i use     Saqawal's Nest, Blood Raiment‌ , would my minion got 40% chance to do double damage?
Really not impressed with this build. Even with double leech gems and 2x6links the minions struggle to stay alive on t5 maps during rituals. Any kind of heavy physical damage completely anihilates your minions so any kind of double boss will oneshot them.

The damage isn't even on par with a low investment toxic rain build for example wich makes short work of enemies in a wide area.

Zealots oath is a pain without 1k stenght and aquiring 1k is not very easy. On top of that the 1k minion leech is your ONLY layer of defense since all your auras are linked to generosity this is bad news for everyone under 1k. You have to take a lot of suboptimal items to get the strenght not to mention the extraordinary cost of good subtlementary items.

Overall the cost vs reward equation is just not there. You can make other builds with a fraction of the cost that are 100 times more effective.

Looks like the OP posted this build to cling on despite the fact that it is borderline useless now.

Edit.: Scratch that the build is flat out not viable. Zombies die too quick and don't kill fast enough. This guide is outdated DO NOT FOLLOW !

Why is the passive tree/gear so much different in the POB then the PoE Planner?

I cannot agree. I've been playing this build in 3.13 and I've enjoyed it. And I'm still enyoing it.
Hello, first of all Amazing guide! and thankyou for your hard work!

Just something I'd like to be added would be just a quick note to tell people when they will get spectres as new players like me don't know when they come in and a simple gem setup for them while leveling.

Thanks again!!
Watchers eye with purity of elements give 30-50% chaos res work on minions?
Any others good watchers eyes for zombiemancer?
Can't find the passive tree. Where should I spend my points ?
Hi, leveling tree is very different from the builds trees. How does it work? I'm new on PoE and don't understand yet all the mechanics.
PURPOSE: Show what ONE ZOMBIE can do at level 40 PVP Act III Sarn Arena.

It's my first video post, so...

Sorry did not use youtube...

Since I was done with the league a while back, I decided to re-roll another necro to level 40. Having eight zombies is an overkill for most PVP opponents in Act III at this late stage of the 3.13 league (think of a train running them over without ever noticing anyone was even there), so I figured, let's see what ONE ZOMBIE can do.

This Level 40 tanky build uses one cluster jewel giving as much as 9000 to 13000 life per zombie. That's more than my necro's eHP of less than 2K. Note also that Minion Instability is needed to counter the difficult PVP builds.

You can see from the CHAT window the kills. It's not an AFK build which is common in Act 8 Sarn Arena, you can get killed for having only one zombie and not moving to do anything about it, and there are a couple of PVP builds out there (lancing steel, unarmed build) that give my level 40 necro a real workout even with 8 zombies, 9 skeletons, SRS, 3 spectres, 1 equipped animated guardian, 2 ascensions. Notice also all the skill gems in the inventory, need to change it up depending on who gives you a hard time. On the gear, the 5L/6L sword would either have zombies or skeletons. The rest of the gear is for (4 sockets) aura gems, (5 sockets) either zombies or skeletons or spectres or SRS, and finally a carrion golem (offense), animated guardian (buffs), movement skill. There's always room for improvement, like I could spend 2 exa to add quality to all gems, but I tried to keep it VERY cheap since this is a level 40 build.

For additional PVP notes while leveling at league start while aiming for the tanky build of page 1 see the older post at page 1633: https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/2642810/page/1633

In case you are wondering how the tanky build fares in Act 8 Sarn Arena PVP at level 94 against an AFK build that uses the Arakaali dagger for spiders (I think this was after I modified the skill tree to a cluster jewel setup.

Just getting into Poe and live the build but I’m not seeing the mana shield increase with spirit offering up. My mana shield at lvl 78 is only like 700. Have all the jewels placed same locations, running same except running Queens decree. Any idea what I could be missing?
