[3.15] Summon Skeletons Build (League Starter) | Necromancer | Expedition | Path of Exile 3.15

Hey guys, it's been while since my last minion build and I'm here with minion instability build. Minion Instability is a Keystone that causes minions to explode when reduced to low life, dealing 33% of their maximum life as fire damage to nearby enemies.

This is probably not the best choice for a starter build. Clear speed is not that great and single target damage needs investment but playstyle is safe. If you like minion builds you can give it a try.

- 1x Carnage Chieftain (The Old Fields in Act 2)
- 1x Tukohama's Vanguard (The Coast in Act 6)
- 1x Solar Guard (The Harbour Bridge in Act 8)

Leveling Gems:
Freezing Pulse - Arcane Surge
Raise Zombie
At level 8:
Summon Raging Spirit - Infernal Legion - Combustion - Minion Damage
Raise Zombie
Flame Dash - Steel Skin - Clarity
At Level 10 switch to Summon Skeletons and keep adding other gems.

Hi, I'm newbie in the game, just can't figure out where I can get Blood Magic stone?
Thanks for the build guide. I'm loving the minion playstyle. Certainly waaaaay more viable in POE than it ever was in Diablo. Good stuff. Love the skitterbots and desecrate/convocation combo.

Blood Magic is now called Lifetap (or Arrogance if it's for mana reservation)

Defenses are just not to get hit and minions tank for you?
