SUMMON RAGING SPIRITS

BUILD

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
​The Covenant is mandatory for this build because socketed gems have Blood Magic, this way Mana will never be a problem. It also grants 10% increased life and Added Chaos Damage support.
  • Weapon
- ​A rare Convoking Wand with +1 to Minion Gems, Minion Attack Speed and/or Minion Damage is the best weapon for this build, it's not so cheap though. Examples here.
- ​The Scourge is the best budget alternative, it grants up to 15% increased minion attack speed and 70% increased minion damage.
  • Shield
- ​Victario's Charity grants Power and Frenzy charges for you and your minions. Equip it as soon as you reach Necromantic Aegis in your Skill Tree.
  • HELMET
- ​I higly recommend a rare Bone Helmet with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- ​Command of the Pit are not cheap, but a great addition to your build. It grants 1000 accuracy rating for your minions increasing a lot your DPS.
- ​You can also use rare energy shield gloves with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • BOOTS
- ​Rare energy shield boots with movement speed, life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • BELT
- ​A rare Heavy Belt is a good choice because it gives strength, find one with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
- ​A rare Ring with life, strength and if possible some elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare Ring with life, dexterity and if possible some elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- ​A recommended unique amulet for this build is Sidhebreath that provides minion damage, minion life and minion speed.
- Or you can use a rare amulet with life and elemental resistances if you are having trouble to reach 75% in all elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • FLASKS
- ​2 or 3 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, just to match the speed of my minions. Look for mods like ''increased movement speed during flask effect'' and ''increased duration''. Examples here.
- Rumis's Concoction as a defensive flask to boost your armour and block chance.

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.
