I have played skeleton mages in the past, extensively.
I never felt is was a significant problem.

It will be even less of a problem with 100% increased projectile speed.
do you think starting with impale tastes worse than elemental?

Yes.
Impale needs expensive cluster jewels.
Triad gloves cost 1 alc.
Elemental Equilibrium is free.

Level Elemental.

EE + Elemental weakness is strong from act 3 on.

Impale does not get strong until late mapping, and costs a LOT of currency.

But, at very high currency levels, impale does more damage.

I think it doesn't matter if someone likes Mage or not, it's a build for Necro. Probably the most flex ascendancy in the game. First, we can play Warriors who will also prove themselves as a starter. We can also convert to any other minion at a low cost (small compared to other ascendancy reroll). So it doesn't matter to me if I can play like that or if it makes me nervous and play in another way.

Since this build was working pretty well on April 1st, now the mages should be doing a really good job after the buff.
Hello,

Can you please help me out with a item filter for this build?

Thank you!
stupid question btw. Any tips and checkpoints for skill gems + support gems for leveling? Cuz leveling from 1lvl on Zombie - meh

Have a look at tytykiller's minion run:

Basically Freezing Pulse into Holyflame Totem plus Flame Wall and SRS (replace with skellies asap and put SRS with Totem Support) into Zombies and Skellies at the start of act 3.

I'm gonna try just this :)
