Would you recommend to just follow the tree as usual (league starter version) and skip necromantic aegis, unless i find a charity?


Yeah that's perfectly fine. You probably won't even notice until you're doing red tier maps.

Spectres are a little difficult to use in SSF because you will need to have at least 3 spectres.

So you need to get lucky with at least 1 of these drops:
1a. Vis Mortis (+1 spectre chest)
1b. Rare +1 spectre chest in delve
2a. Bones of Ullr (+1 spectre boots)
2b. Bound fossil in delve and crafting a +1 spectre boots

SSF is better suited to Skeletons or SRS...



Thanks for that insanely fast answer, you're a fantastic human being!

Coudn't you potentially do white maps easily with just 2 spectres? I can be a very very patient white map farmer when it comes to stuff like that, as i'm not a racer anyway. And sooner or later i would get one of these 4 things

I am very optimistic, Enfeeble with dread banner and aul Grace aura. I found it more consistent than temporal chains. In advanced craft maybe a tip with enchanted fossil in helmet. I got 30% cooldoWn in convocation (I'm on standard) maybe in legion enchanted fossil is cheaper.

Hey dude and thanks again for this great guide for a recent player like me. How ever, I don't have any mana left after I use DB + Wrath + TC. What am I doing wrong?

    For doing white maps, 2 spectres should be OK.

    Also if you're focusing on mapping, I recommend a projectile spectre: Prayer Guards (act 5: chamber of innocence) or Lightning Risen Vaal Advocate (temple/incursion/delve:vaal).

    I prefer L-RVA because they can handle reflect maps.

  • Did You already spec in the Charisma-Cluster for reduced mana reservation?

    Interesting suggestion. I can add that as an alterate option since Aul's are rare and somewhat expensive.

    I did try enchanted fossils, but didn't have a lot of luck getting anything useful. I might put that in the endgame options section, though, in case people want to sink some currency into it.

    Did you take the Leadership notable? An alternative option is to take the Charisma notable instead of Leadership.

    If you could make your character viewable or send me a PoB paste, I can have a quick check.

    that looks dope as well! so i could basically do the same build, use these spectres when farm-mapping (inc AoE > GMP?) and the slave drivers when i'm progressing?

    thanks for taking your time, really!

    Welp, missed that branch whilst respeccing. Also made the characters public. Would you mind to take a look at my necro and point out suggestions for:

    * How to and where to bind conductivity to arma brand
    * Where to throw the banner (and should I)?

    I guess I'll need to drop some other supports?

    Sorry to trouble you, just a new player and learning things all the time. This build is absolutely a beast compared to the 74-minion build I used for 1-85 but I feel like single target DPS is holding me from going further in boss fights.

    It's the end of the league and I'd like to complete as many challenges as possible. Got friends throwing currency in from all the doors and windows so doesn't matter if you find expensive suggestions :^)

    Yeah inc aoe -> GMP. Both spectres can handle all content, the only difference is what you are focusing on: mapping or bossing. Risen Vaal Advocates are my choice for mapping: fast projectiles + GMP and they can survive reflect maps. Slave Drivers are the better spectre for bossing because of their DPS.

    The main downside to RVAs is the difficult in actually getting them. They randomly spawn in Alva incursions, Temple of Azoatl or Delve: Vaal Outpost.

    I'm currently preparing a new section for the guild about using different spectres and gear/gem swaps needed, as well as some comments about how they play and where to summon them.
