Passive tree

This is the endgame passive skill tree for the build. We focus on picking Minion and Skill Effect Duration so our Summon Raging Spirit Summon Raging Spirit and Animate Weapon Animate Weapon last longer. Besides that focus on Elemental Equilibrium, Life and Minion Damage.

Gems

We are mainly using Summon Raging Spirit Summon Raging Spirit while Animate Weapon Animate Weapon augments our single target damage. Both skills should be 6-Linked; you should prioritize Summon Raging Spirits. Summon Carrion Golem Summon Carrion Golem provides additional damage to all of your Minions while Raise Spectre Raise Spectre can be used to raise Silverbacks from Act II, which will provide Frenzy charges to your army. For mobility, use Flame Dash Flame Dash. For auras, you can use Hatred Hatred on Generosity Support Generosity Support or Haste Haste. Summon Skitterbots Summon Skitterbots are also a great addition to the build. Flesh Offering Flesh Offering should be active all the time while Convocation Convocation will allow you to reposition your Minions. Rallying Cry Rallying Cry will increase your minions’ damage by a decent amount, consider the skill as a on-demand steroid.

For all the gem links we provide below, keep in mind that we list the gems in order of priority (starting from the top left, going to the right on each row of the links), meaning that if you lack the required number of sockets to fit all the gems, the first ones to drop are the ones at the bottom (with the bottom right being the last). Also note that in-game, as long as the sockets are linked, it makes no difference at all what order the gems are placed in.

Summon Raging Spirit (6-Link)

Summon Raging Spirit Summon Raging Spirit summons a Minion that lasts for a short duration. It is basically an aggressive heat-seeking missile. When combined with Unleash Support Unleash Support you are able to summon up to 4 Raging Spirits with a single cast. The maximum number of Spirits you can have is 20. We recommend swapping a single Red Gem in order to alternate between clearing and single target.

For clearing, use the following link.

  1. Summon Raging Spirit Summon Raging Spirit
  2. Melee Splash Support Melee Splash Support
  3. Unleash Support Unleash Support

Animate Weapon (6-Link)

Animate Weapon Animate Weapon is very similar to Summon Raging Spirits, except instead of just summoning a Minion you have to raise a weapon left on the ground, which will fight for you. You can basically raise a weapon in two ways. By slaying monsters weapons will be left on the ground, on which you can use your skill and raise your minions this way, or you can use Bladefall Bladefall, which will leave blades on the ground. Animating these blades will result in even more powerful Minions. We recommend one Animate Weapon link for doing any kind of content.

  2. Multistrike Support Multistrike Support
  3. Minion Damage Support Minion Damage Support

    Hello!

    Thank you for this build. I have been using it and having a lot of fun! I do have a question regarding dexterity and the spirit guards jewel. With your passive tree build, where is the best place to put that gem in order to activate being able to used ranged weapons? I am having trouble finding somewhere with 40 dex, so I figured I’d ask the actual creator. Thanks again!
