Forum Index Witch [2.6 Video Guide] Auramancer Pseudo Support Build Guide [HC/SC/Atziri/Uber Atziri/Uber Izaro Viable]

History

For a more detailed explanation of the build check out the video guide: Auramancer Support Build Guide Video

If you are new or uncertain how summoners work, how they are scaled or behave, check out this video guide: Generic Summoner Mechanic Guide

Uber Izaro is not a summoner friendly fight, even with high budget I would not recommend going with full buffs. However, this build is Uber Atziri viable whilst still being support focused. It's glory is with a party since it can pretty much double the DPS of most builds in the game atm!

For Uber Atziri kill vid, check out Leary93's video; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDpuT-Z3oFg
Do keep in mind that the build is mainly designed for support and Uber Atziri is viable, yet I would not suggest it to farm her with any summoner build these days.

Is this build for you?

1. If you are looking for an amazing Support build.

2. A build that is not only viable in both hardcore & sofcore, but also Atziri and even Uber Atziri.

3. Really good clearing speed that is NOT SRS.

4. If you prefer a build guide that has a video linked to it.

5. You want a Necromancer build and still contribute to a party!

Defence & Utility

We are utilizing Flame Dash for the sake of doing the Labyrinth safely, outside of that we have an army of meatshields including the Proximity Shields (Bubbles) from our Undying Evangelists!

__________________________________________________________________________

Why we are using Undying Evangelists

We could go with Knitted Horrors or even Flame Sentinels for a slightly better map clearing spectre, however, single target DPS will never get better than the Evangelists. Outside of the DMG factor this build is based around supporting your minions and/or your party members, and you need to stay alive to do so. In higher tier maps T13-t15 I felt that the bubbles from Undying Evangelists were too good to give up. So i kept moving back to them, for the sake of an overall effeciency. Would also like to mention that the Evangelists are the Uber Atziri viable spectres.

Skill-gems & Setups:

Spectres:

5L:
- Raise Spectre, Minion DMG - Spell Echo - Increased AoE - Controlled Destruction
6L:
- Raise Spectre, Minion DMG - Spell Echo - Increased AoE - Controlled Destruction - Poison

Meatshields:

- Raise Zombie, Fortify + Arc (for EE procs)

Utility:

- Vaal Discipline - Vaal Haste - Flesh Offering - Increased Duration

Auras & Utility:

- Generosity + Hatred + Flame Dash - Convocation

Auras:

- Enlighten LvL 4, Purity of Lightning - Purity of Ice - Purity of Fire

Auras (Prism Guardian):

- Grace - Haste - Discipline

Unset Rings

- Clarity LvL 1

Unset Rings

- Desecrate


This setup leaves us with 8 total Auras, however if you chose to run with Victario's Charity you'll go down to 6 Auras using this setup:

Victario's Charity Aura Plan

Also, I would not recommend that approach unless you have an Enlighten LvL 4. Without it in the ordinary setup you are still running 7 Auras!

Skill-tree & Ascendancy Nodes:

Ascendancy Nodes:
Rush Soul Weaver, then pick up Commander of Darkness and finish hard with Mistress of Sacrifice to further enhance your clear speed!


Finished Skill-tree

When LvLing, make sure to take extra spell dmg & life nodes and use Firestorm/Flame Totem till you switch over to summoner. A more detailed explanation is in the video guide!

__________________________________________________________________________


Leveling Tips:

1. Fire Trap / Freezing Pulse till you can equip yourself with Firestorm & Flame Totem.

2. Abberaths Horn and/or Lifesprig is amazingly nice to use whilst LvLing .

3. Once Firestorm deals enough damage you can remove Flame Totem.

4. Use Herald of Ice & Lightning whilst LvLing to further enhance your lvling speed.

5. Change in to a summoner when you reach Act 3 Cruel difficulty Sceptre of God, but I would recommend waiting for Merciless Act 3.


Bandits:

- Normal: Kill them all for 1 extra skill point.
- Cruel: Kill them all for 1 extra skill point.
- Merciless: Kill them all for 1 extra skill point.

    Lack of sockets and effeciency compared to what the other stuffs im using are. It's just a matter of personal taste, the DPS is insane but a curse won't increase my clear speed as it's locked within the minion AI in the end.


    I'm doin alright, working a lot to sort my financial situation losing my old job caused. You?

    A bit too many off-colors and you want to have as much ES as possible. I would not recommend it at least.

    Basically you simply take the skill-tree and strip it of all ES nodes and take as many HP nodes as you can get your hands on. It's very straight forward! :)
    Also, since you don't reserv HP with auras you don't need all aura reservation nodes till you change either so run Hatred, Discipline, and like Purity of Elements should be enough to set you before you change.
