ZOMBIEMANCER

BUILD

INFORMATION

This is a Necromancer based build focusing on the Skill Raise Zombie combining with the Unique Helmet The Baron. This is a very powerful build able to clear all endgame content without much effort. Unfortunately it's expensive to gather all the 1200 Strength needed.

Pros

  • Easy to play

  • Endgame destroyer

  • Good currency farmer

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

  • Great Clear Speed

  • Minion Build that can leech Life

  • Tanky

Cons

  • Expensive

  • Many Mandatory Uniques

  • Vulnerable to Chaos Damage

  • Hard to cap Resistances

EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- A rare body armour with Strength, life, resistances and +1 Zombie. Examples here.
  • WEAPON
- You can use an overkill rare mace with "Gems supported by Maim", a bunch of minion mods, +1 to level of gems, +2 to level of socketed gems. Examples here. (Maces like these are expensive and not necessary at all, I've used the budget alternative when recording my gameplay and the damage was already too damn high. But if you have currency and want to impress your friends with an overkill build, go for it.)
- The budget alternative is Femurs of the Saints, it grants +2 to level of minion gems and 80% increased minion damage. 
  • HELMET
​The Baron is mandatory because it grants up to 40 Strength, 20% increased maximum life for minion. Most important it grants 1 extra Zombie per 300 Strength and Half of your Strength for your minions.
  • GLOVES
- Rare gloves with Strength, Life and Elemental Resistances. Examples here.
- If you still need a Strangth boost, you can also use Meginord's Vise, that grant +100 Strength.
  • BOOTS
- ​Alberon's Warpath are mandatory because they grant up to 18% increased Strength, don’t forget to wear them.
  • BELT
- ​A rare heavy belt with strength and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
- ​A rare Ring with strength and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare Ring with strength and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- Astramentis is awesome because it grants up to +116 to all stats, not only helping with the Strength meta but also helping to achieve the minimum Dexterity and Intelligence you need.
- If you are not so much in need of that big amount of attributes you can also use a rare amulet with attributes and +1 Zombie. Examples here.
  • FLASKS
- ​2 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, it helps the clear speed. Look for mods like ''increased movement speed during flask effect'' and ''increased duration''. Examples here.
- A Silver Flask grants the onslaugh buff for more Shield Charge speed. Look for mods like ‘’Increased Movement Speed During Flask Effect’’ and ‘’Increased Duration’’. 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.

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.
