There's something with the S&S combination annoys me : the Sentries usually one shot the mobs but cant kill them, until the spiders run over and bite those freezing mobs to kill them with their poison.


Yes, that's the downside of S&S. The poison also takes a second or so before it ticks. You can give Lesser Poison to the Sentries so they can do poison damage too.

But I think Knights and Spiders are a better combo than Sentries, actually. I used it on the weekend and it felt great. I recorded some gameplay and will make a video today or tomorrow.

Do Knights do significantly higher boss damage than Sentries? That would be the only reason I see to take them. I tried em out a while back and the clear just didn't feel as smooth. I know multistrike would give them an advantage (since Barrage isn't available to minions) but as far as I know their base DPS is the same. The knights attack faster but for proportionally less damage I believe?

For the Spectres and Spiders build, I'm curious if anyone else uses the old CwC Cyclone setup. I don't think I've seen it mentioned here and I think most people abandoned it after the nerf to Spirit Offering. There's a lot of reasons I find this beneficial, especially for the spider version:

1. You never have to stop to cast your offering (or rely on CwDT to proc it from damage).
2. You can get a fire damage corrupted Arakaali's Fang to proc EE (alternatively fire or lightning damage to attacks on other gear).
3. You assist your spiders in finishing off all the one HP enemies, both from the cyclone itself, poisons you apply and all the Desecrates you throw out.
4. Elder boots can roll Fortify support for extra damage reduction.
5. Easy and fast Frenzy charges from Victario's Charity (even without Spiritual Command Cyclone reaches 6-7 attacks per second with 20 spiders up)
6. Your minions are constantly being directed to attack in the area of your mouse cursor resulting in generally smoother control compared to manually casting (imo anyhow).

The downside obviously is the move speed slow and the extra gem slot cost.
Anyone able and willing to let me raise Redemption Spectres in their HO pl0x?
Question: why do you use victario's charity in the EB/MOM build if your are not killing anything yourself? How do you generate the charges?

You generate Frenzy charge by casting spell like Ball Lightnin to proc it, but not for Power charge
To generate power charge, here is few ways I found
1) link Spectre with Power Charge On Critical Support, usually during boss fight you will get 3 charge, mapping enemy will die with charge or without already.
2) use assassin's mark curse, but you get power charge after slain so boss fight usually can't grant power charge
3) get +2 power/freeze shield, but you need to take necromantic aegis, this will have perma 2 power/freeze on your minion.

I am using 3) now but trying to figure out how to get +3 power ball to my minion.
using POB, if I switch out curse Frostbit (-44% cold resistance) to assassin's mark (+200% cri chance) it's lose of dps

any suggestion?
Anyone have any suggestion on how to further improve my build? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.PS. I like using Necro aegis as gives me a lot of QoL, not having to worry about generating charges. I also dont like using the Phasing Watcher's eye as I hate how it hides my mtx xD.

Additionally, I did try using Precise with Vengeful medium clusters and while it gives a little bit more DPS, the attack speed does get lower. I find that the higher attack speed helps alot more with clear and freezes.

I'm still a newbie and got to level 92 right now and got an Inspired Learning Jewell. Do this Jewell works on our minions? I had to take a 4 points and allocate some Notable nodes. What you guys think?

Thank you. I finally found someone is #6666 though.

Gotta say, this is strong as fack. upgraded my shield (that didn't have spell block on it) for this

gotta recolor, but ya!

Good stuff
I really want to add a second large cluster jewel setup but I am not entirely sure why I am struggling to get to 6.5k already, I don't know how you are getting such high hp rings in the pob either but any tips would be much appreciated. I am open to completely overhauling the entire tree to make it all work
So I crafted a +3 lvl, Minion Dmg, Hypothermia helm and have an open Suffix and Prefix. If I craft on the +1 to Projectile Gems/Proj Pen, will my Sentries benefit from the Pen?
