Passive Tree

The Raise Spectre Necromancer focuses on picking as much minion life and damage as possible. Besides that the build can achieve over 200% Increased maximum life on the passive skill tree

Lord of the Dead, Spiritual Command and Sacrifice should be the first major nodes you pick, after that head to Righteous Army, Spiritual Aid and Redemption, pick up as much life as you need on the way. Then you should be ready to start relying on spectres, go for Death Attunement as soon as you start raising spectres.

Gems

Raise Spectre Raise Spectre is your main skill, which should ideally be used in a 6-Link. For mobility, use Shield Charge Shield Charge and Flame Dash Flame Dash. Flesh Offering Flesh Offering and Bone Offering Bone Offering can be swapped based on the content you are running. A Curse On Hit Support Curse On Hit Support gem setup can be utilized in order to lower enemies’ elemental resistances. Raise Zombie Raise Zombies should be used for additional protection. Summon Chaos Golem Summon Chaos Golem and Animate Guardian Animate Guardian can be used for the additional utility they provide.

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.

Raise Spectre (6-Link)

Here, we will generally be talking about having Solar Guards as a Raise Spectre Raise Spectre. Solar Guards shoot fire damage-based projectiles, very similar to Fireball Fireball. This is why augmenting projectiles and spells with the support gems proves to be very beneficial for the spectres. We recommend using two different links for clearing and single target.

For clearing, use the following link.

  1. Raise Spectre Raise Spectre
  2. Pierce Support Pierce Support
  3. Greater Multiple Projectiles Support Greater Multiple Projectiles Support
  4. Spell Echo Support Spell Echo Support
  5. Minion Damage Support Minion Damage Support
  6. Controlled Destruction Support Controlled Destruction Support

For single target, use the following link.

  1. Raise Spectre Raise Spectre
  2. Slower Projectiles Support Slower Projectiles Support
  3. Greater Multiple Projectiles Support Greater Multiple Projectiles Support
  4. Spell Echo Support Spell Echo Support
  5. Minion Damage Support Minion Damage Support
  6. Controlled Destruction Support Controlled Destruction Support

Note: Greater Multiple Projectiles Support Greater Multiple Projectiles Support is worth keeping in your single target link, because projectiles can hit multiple times against certain target, especially in indoor maps.

Raise Zombie (4-Link)

Raise Zombie Raise Zombies are used just as a “meat shield”. We aim to just make them as hard to kill as possible.

  1. Raise Zombie Raise Zombie
  2. Meat Shield Support Meat Shield Support
  3. Fortify Support Fortify Support
  4. Minion Life Support Minion Life Support

Freezing Pulse and Elemental Weakness (3-Link)

Freezing Pulse Freezing Pulse is used in order to lower enemies’ elemental resistances via the Elemental Equilibrium keystone on the passive skill tree, along with the Elemental Weakness Elemental Weakness curse. This curse can always be swapped with a more defensive option, like Enfeeble Enfeeble or Temporal Chains Temporal Chains.

  1. Freezing Pulse Freezing Pulse
  2. Elemental Weakness Elemental Weakness
  3. Curse On Hit Support Curse On Hit Support

Shield Charge (3-Link)

Shield Charge Shield Charge is the mobility skill that should be used all the time.

  1. Shield Charge Shield Charge
  2. Fortify Support Fortify Support
  3. Faster Attacks Support Faster Attacks Support

Other Gems

Convocation Convocation will summon all your minions next to you, this is very useful when you need to reposition quickly. You can choose between Flesh Offering Flesh Offering and Bone Offering Bone Offering depending on the content you are doing. Flame Dash Flame Dash helps out if you need to jump over terrain. Summon Chaos Golem Summon Chaos Golem is used for the additional physical damage mitigation. For auras, you have a lot of freedom, we recommend Anger Anger.

    If you provide a link to your character I will figure out why.

    How does Anger work with the Solar Guards as spectres?

    I’m trying to use Solar Guards which I presume use FIRE as their main element for damage, but when I activate Anger and start using my Freezing Pulse, that one (FP) has a FIRE damage element added to it, and the mobs gets increased resistance to both COLD (okej) and FIRE (not okej).

    I also have LIGHTNING damage on my gear, which should be ok as long as I don’t add any FIRE to my own attacks.

    What am I doing wrong here?

    PS. Not sure how to provide a direct link, but https://www.pathofexile.com/account/view-profile/Prisnagka/characters and then Raz_theWitch

    If you choose to use Anger Anger you should link it with Generosity Support Generosity Support so it does not apply Fire damage to your Freezing Pulse Freezing Pulse so you can easily apply Elemental Equilibrium.

    Hey, Shield Charge Shield Charge is amazing for overall mobility, but if you sometimes have to jump over ledges or get stuck into map terrain you will need Flame Dash Flame Dash.

    Hey, at level 25 of the gem you can summon 3 Spectres, the 4th one comes from Body Armours that drop in the Delve from Minion nodes. At the moment 4 is your best bet.

    So… Ahn’s Heritage with Fragility gems AND Necromantic Aegis doesn’t really make any sense to me? Jewels don’t lower the cap on minions and if you have the Aegis node you won’t get to 0 max yourself either… Am I supposed to get the missing charges from somewhere or am I just completely missing something. Thanks.

    Hey, you should not be using the Ahn's Heritage Ahn's Heritage + Fragility Fragility combo along with Necromantic Aegis. You just need the Shield along with 2 of the Jewels and your maximum Endurance charges will be 0, which will allow you to get the benefits from the Shield.

    Hey, Spectres are dying to Elemental reflect simply because they deal tons of Elemental damage and that is normal, you should not be doing Elemental Reflect maps in general.

    Yeah, I was just commenting in regards to your comment in the guide where you said ele reflect maps should be fine. They are definitely not fine lol.
