SUMMON RAGING SPIRITS

BUILD

SUMMARY

INFORMATION

This is a Necromancer based build focusing on the Skill Summon Raging Spirits (SRS). This is a very beginner friendly build because it gets really strong with a few investment and it's very easy to play. My favourite build for starting any League, it's a currency farmer.

Pros

  • Cheap

  • Easy to play

  • Boss killer

  • Good currency farmer

  • Safe build, stay behind and let your minions do their job

  • League starter

Cons

  • Can't leech life or mana

  • Raging Spirits need to be casted all the time

  • Vulnerable to chaos damage

EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
A rare Energy Shield body armour with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • STAFF
- ​A rare staff with +3 to level of all fire skill gems and a bunch of minion damage is the best weapon for this build, it's not so cheap though. Examples here.
- ​Femurs of the Saints is the best budget alternative, it grants +2 Level of Socketed Minion Gems and up to 80% increased minion damage.
  • HELMET
- ​I highly recommend you to use The Devouring Diadem, mainly because it already grants Eldritch Battery and saves 5 passive skill points. But don't think that's all, this helmet also consumes nearby corpses to grant Life, Mana and Energy Shield. It reduces mana reservation allowing us to use one more aura and grants 10% chance to start Energy Shield recover every time you use a skill. This helmet might to be a little expensive during the first weeks of a new League.
- If you can't afford it yet, you can use a rare helmet with life, elemental resistances and energy shield (But remeber that you'll also have to pick Eldritch Battery on your skill tree). Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- ​Triad Grip are the best gloves for this build because they convert your minion’s physical damage into Cold Damage, so they can benefit the most from Hatred and Elemental Damage with Attacks. You must have 4 Green sockets on them.
- It’s quite hard to get a Triad Grip with 4 Green Sockets. While you don’t get one use Grip of the Council that grants 20% of our minion’s Physical damage as extra Cold damage.
  • BOOTS
- ​Rare energy shield boots with movement speed, life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • BELT
- ​A good rare belt with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
- ​If you can afford good Abyssal Jewels, a Darkness Enthroned is the best belt for this build. I’ll talk more about Abyssal Jewels later on this guide.
  • RING #1
- ​A rare Unset Ring with life, dexterity and if possible some elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare Unset Ring with life, dexterity and if possible some elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- Use a rare amulet with life and elemental resistances. Also some dexterity if needed. Examples here.
  • FLASKS
- ​Divine Life Flasks are important for this build, because you cannot leech life. Look for mods like ''instant recovery'', ''removes bleeding'' and ''removes freeze''. Examples here and here.
- I like to use a Quicksilver Flask on this build, so I don't need to spend sockets with a movement skill. Look for mods like ''increased movement speed during flask effect'' and ''increased duration''. Examples here.
- Quartz Flask are awesome here because they allow us to move through enemies. Examples here.
- An Basalt Flask for physical damage reduction. Look for mods like ''increased duration'' and "Increased armour" Examples here.
- Rumis's Concoction as a defensive flask to boost your armour and block chance.
  • ENCHANTMENTS
- ​Helmet: Flesh Offering grants 21% increased attack speed.
- Gloves: Of Reflection.
- Boots: Movement Speed.
P.S. Enchantments are not super important, so don't feel bad if you don't have the right ones ;)

THIS BUILD'S FAQ
  • Is there a good place to buy unique items?
- Not only for unique items, poe.trade or pathofexile.com/trade are great websites for trading your items.
  • I'm lvl 40 and I'm dying a lot, what can I do?
- Please take a look at your Elemental Resistances, they are really important for your survivability. After lvl 40 try to keep at least 50% of each. The meximum is 75%, try to reach that when on end game.
  • I don't have as much HP and Energy Shield as the gameplay shows and I've followed the Skill Tree step by step. Can you help me?
- Look for more HP and Energy Shield at your rare gear. You can have ''+89 to maximum life'' on your helmet for instance.
  • You say the build is cheap, a 6 Linked body armour and staff are expensive. How?
- 6 Linked body armour or staff are not mandatory for this build to work. Maximize a build with the best possible items and 6 Linkeds takes a good amount of currency. Start using 4 Linkeds on low tier maps in order to farm currency to upgrade your gear.
  • I don't have enough Dexterity or Strength for all those gems, what can I do?
- Look for Dexterity and Strength on your rare items. You can also take the +30 nodes on the Skill Tree.
