Why this build?
1. Why this build?

With this build, you have a huge army of minions, each of them is dealing a good amount of damage.

What minions you have all the time:
- Dominating blow: 9x normal + 3x magic + 1x rare Sentinel
- Herald of Purity: 4x Sentinels of Purity
- Zombies: 8x
- Carrion Golem: 1x
Total amount of minions= 26 minions

I cant tell how much DPS I have, but I know that it deals lot of damage!

- 6k health or more
- 2 defensive curse auras(temporal chains, enfeeble)
- resistance cap easy to get
- physical damage reduction is okay, not thaat good

3. Gear

Before you look at the gear, here some information.

Because of your ascendary, you will get a lot of elemental resistance(20% + 3% per minion, up to 30% = 50%)
So you dont need to concentrate to much on that

The gear I am using actually


Recommended weapons for defensive play:
The Scourge(5c) + Lioneye's Remorse(2c)

Just the type of build I was looking for. I’ve been wanting to combine herald of purity with zombies and scourge to try it out. How is it working for you so far? You like it?
