Playing this in HC. Ripped once to cruel daresso (should have gotten myself a logout macro...). Anyway second run I'm just shy of 80 and having a lot of fun. Two questions:

Spectre level/de-leveling. If I go to a T16 map, and summon spectres, and then run a T14, it will drop them to a T14 level. But if I go back up to another T16 after will they be T16 strength again, or stay T14?

Is the scourge worth getting? It looks like a large damage increase, but one I have to keep up myself. It's also rather expensive in HC. Currently I'm just using a clayshaper since I'm res capped for a second stone golem.

Thanks!


The maximum cap of the spectres is based of the area lvl (and desecrate of course) that you summoned them in. If you go to any lower lvl areas they will downscale to that, however, they will scale back up to a maximum of the area lvl that you summoned them in. So if you get them in t16 and enter a t10 and then back to a t16 they will scale back up to t16.

When it comes to Scourge, it's always a nice boost in damage but does come very pricey :/


Ahh that's awesome, it would be a huge pain to micromanage spectre levels to make sure they didn't drop during sessions. And yeah I think for now my $$ are better spent getting above a 4l for spectres haha. Though I've cleared up to T9 on a 4 link it starts to get a bit sketchy when there's lots of baddies.

Hi Ghazzy,

thank you for this build. It was the first time, i killed Atziri (lv 90, 5L). I am using a bone helmet (40% MD, +2 lvl to minion gems, +27% minimion life) and the scourge terror claw (together 60c). That gives me 410% minion damage, which is a nice boost. After crafting a 6 link vis mortis it has a good clearspeed. I am using only EE for now, but will try the other keystones too.


Awesome bro :)
Glad you like it!


@agentanorexia:

Haha, alright bro :)

How do you get the necessary DEX to use the green gems?

I personally prefer to get a high dexterity providing amulet :)

Hi there!

I have few questions considering Necro build in upcoming 3.0 beta.

1) What your thoughts about playing as scion ascendant using Necro + Guardian, also thoughts about how to use new MOM in summoner builds. (srs)

2) Im really wishing to play pure zombies build with montreguls and necro boots, thinking to get some pure Armour chest with high life, armour, what do you think about it? Im honestly like life regen and higher HP pool instead of hybrid (and no regen vs degen). (any advice and thoughts about it)

Hey,

1) Scion is vastly underperforming compared to Necromancer I'm afraid, even after the "buffs" :/
New MoM is great though :)

2) Think that it can work pretty well but will require some rethinking on the skilltree imo to get more life, perhaps more jewel slots for some % life jewels to sort it out, it will however increase in cost to run.

Hope it helped! ^^

Hi Ghazzy,

I started playing Path of Exile in Legacy League and chose this as my first build. Pretty happy to say that ive beaten Uber Lab with it. Works like a charm. Im doing the Soul Weaver variant and you also dont mention what the last Ascension should be. Ive picked Commander of Darkness for now. Should i respec into Mistress of Sacrifice for more clearspeed? Also thinking about actually getting rid of spirit eater, is that viable?

Ive bought a 5L vis mortis at a decent price. I also have a bone Helmet and Life rolls on all my gear yet i only have 4k Life. Im kinda stumped on how to progress gear wise. If anyone could look at my gear and tree and give tips it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi again, I have more questions, with reference to the enchantments of the labyrinth that go in the boots, gloves and the helmet.
Which would be the best recommended for this build?
I have seen some but I am not sure if they will be the best.

Boots:
- Regenerate 2% of Life and Mana per second if you were Hit Recently
- 10% increased Movement Speed if you haven't been Hit Recently

Gloves:
- Of Reflection
- Of the Grave

Helmet:
- Dominated Minions deal 30% increased Damage

Hey,

I'm glad you like it bro!
Normal: Flesh Binder
Cruel: Soul Weaver
Merciless: Misstress of Sacrifice
Uber: Commander of Darkness

Regarding Gear:
Helmet can have much more life on top of a higher strength roll thats at least 100-200 more hp if you change it.
You have no explicit rolled life nor strength on the Coral ring which can have about 3-4 times the ammount of life.
The Unset ring can have almost twice the HP it has by finding a higher rolled that also has strength on it.

Other than that you look fine to me :) You do however seem to be lacking life nodes on the tree to have all of them around consitution for example.

Tip when searching poe.trade for life gear:
Add a life search and all other mods you want in your search then in the list of results there is a grayed out text saying how much life the item provides you, simply click on that to list the item that grants you the absolute max life possible from the results on top. (The calculated life includes strength rolls!)

Hello there!
Well Gloves only have the "...of the Grave" enchant that summons cold version of SRS for you, that is good.
Boots is as you listed and comes down to a matter of taste.

Helmet however you'd want either Spectre damage or any utility you might find useful, I'd go for spectre damage though. (Not dominated minions as thats for Dominating Blow


Hope it helped guys! :)

Ohh I see, thanks for answer me, i really appreciate it, so the final result:

Helmet:
EnchantmentRaiseSpectreDamage2 75 Spectres have 40% increased Damage

Boots:
EnchantmentLifeAndManaRegenerationWhenHit3_ 75 Regenerate 2% of Life and Mana per second if you were Hit Recently

Gloves:
EnchantmentOfTheGraveOnKill4 75 Cast Commandment of the Grave when your Skills or Minions Kill

I guess the number in the table (75) corresponds to the level of the item, if it is a lower level the enchantment is less powerful, or at least that's what I think.

Here i put my character profile:

Any suggestions you can give me for improvement will be very welcome.
