How is it holding up in higher level Deliriums? I found a pretty dang good cluster with 'recently summoned minions get 30% movespeed and 30% damage' and a fat old life/damage node. I was kind of thinking of doing the good ol' SRS popcorn build, but skeletons are fun to blow up, too.

I unfortunately cannot answer that as this wasn't my starter build, maybe somebody who has tried it can help you out but I am fairly certain it will hold up great. Even better now with the patch notes. The damage is, as posted, very, very high and there should be no worries.
Clusters seem to be an amazing option for this build too. There are options for minion life and minion damage that both give amazing damage boosts to this build.

Do the skeletons cause minion instability when you keep casting them and they expire, or is it specifically when their health drops to the 33%? Because if you can't spam them, then wouldn't srs be a better choice? I'm actually looking forward to crafting a weapon with "trigger a socketed spell" mod so I can use both srs and skeletons.

When their Health drops to 33%, hence 2 Earendel's Sceptres and Infernal Legion for map clear. You spam them, they pop really fast and have a decent AoE (since you're using Infernal legion instead of Concentrated Effect for map clear).

What would be the cluster notables to use here?

Im thinking:

Call to the Slaughter
Minions deal 15% increased Damage
Minions created Recently have 30% increased Movement Speed
Minions created Recently have 10% increased Attack and Cast Speed [1]

Raze and Pillage
Minions gain 6% of Physical Damage as Extra Fire Damage
Minions have 20% chance to Ignite
Minions deal 20% increased Damage against Ignited Enemies

Do you have any better suggestions?
I went all in with Cluster Jewels :D
I chose:

Spoiler
Raze and Pillage
Minions have 20% chance to Ignite
Minions deal 20% increased Damage against Ignited Enemies
Minions gain 6% of Physical Damage as Extra Fire Damage

Call to the Slaughter
Minions deal 15% increased Damage
Minions created Recently have 10% increased Attack and Cast Speed
Minions created Recently have 30% increased Movement Speed


Feasting Fiends
Minions have 10% increased maximum Life
Minions deal 10% increased Damage
Minions Leech 0.4% of Damage as Life





Hulking Corpses
Minions have 20% increased maximum Life
20% increased Raised Zombie Size
Raised Zombies have 5% chance to Taunt Enemies on Hit

Life from Death
Minions have 15% increased maximum Life
Regenerate 2% of Life per second if a Minion has Died Recently
Minions Recover 4% of Life on Minion Death


I added zombies to the build as an additional meat shield, as I was getting killed quite often without them. It is getting better now, but I probably will keep them around.

Other than that I went mosty verbatim with what devon suggested.

My gear so far:

Hulking corpses and Life from Death are the thing's I would probably take.

Hi just wondering what's the purpose of bloodbond? Is it possible to go for a tankier chest?

Of course if you want to, but bloodbond gives a lot of minion explosion damage with "Minions have 30% increased Maximum Life". Plus it gives life and life regen. It's really great imo.

Ooh thanks for that. I didn't realize minion instability is based on total health. No wonder there were all those 'useless' minion life nodes around. XP
Can you suggest how we can make this build tankier though? I have almost 6k HP and I'm still dying every 10 seconds in high tier maps.
