Hi Kayella !

What is the advantages of using temporal + blasphemy + holy flame totem over amargeddon brand + curse on hit + temporal ?


You get a permanent aura around you with temporal chains without needing to cast anything. The aura is 'medium sized' but combined with dread banner and flesh and stone, should keep you very safe against melee attacks. It does cost 35% mana reservation, though (free with Shaper's Presence).

HFT casts consecrated ground around it which gives you 6% heal and curse immunity. It also has a large aoe and pierce all, so will hit many monsters, for applying EE.

Arma Brand can only hit 4 monsters (you can have 3 brands for a total of 12 monsters), but sticks to monsters and cannot be killed like HFT. Curse on Hit means you don't need to reserve mana, but it only applies Temp chains to the 4 monsters Arma Brand hits. Unfortunately, you need to stop moving and cast the brand to take advantage of temp chains, which in some circumstances is very dangerous.

You say we need to Despawn our Spectre before Summoning the high level ones but Why exactly?


Actually, it's more of a 'pro tip' because when you're desecrating and summoning, you could lose count because of a distraction. Then you run off with 3 i84s and 1 i38 spectre, then wonder why you only have 3 spectres halfway through red tier map. Surely, you summoned 4...

I've done this many times :P

If you're referring to the Pledge of Hands build:



Flesh and Stone
Dread Banner
Clarity
Wrath
Temporal Chains/Blasphemy
Haste



(ignore the storm brand next to clarity; it would normally be holy flame totem)

How is Blade Vortex used in this build?
It triggers when using another skill, which one?
It is a channeling skill, do you need to constanly trigger another skill?

I have used the cyclone/discharge based Speaker of Dead necro and thinking for respeccing into this (now for league end to try it before next league start).

How similar is Blade Vortex to Cyclone/Discharge?

*Discharge might be another spell.

Here's how it works in this build:

1. Elemental Equilibrium procs -50% lightning res on anything the summoner hits with fire or cold damage.
2. Trigger craft auto-casts socketed gems. It has a 4s cooldown.
3. Trigger will auto-cast when you use the other skills in this build: convocation, flame dash, holy flame totem/armageddon brand or phase run.
4. Blade Vortex is an aoe spell with a 5s duration. It's duration is longer than the cooldown on Trigger, so it should always be up.
5. With 'added fire/cold damage to spells' on the wand/scepter, Blade Vortex does elemental damage and procs Elemental Equilibrium on every monster within its range.

* The Blade Vortex range overlaps with Temp Chains/Blasphemy and Dread Banner aoe radius. These three things should keep you very safe.

** If you're able to get Shaper's Presence, you can also use Flesh and Stone for aoe Blind aura as well as 11% reduced damage taken from monsters outside aura range.

Thanks for your reply. So that means, curse aura is for mapping/delving while curse on hit with another aura (haste, zealotry or defensive like grace, discipline) is better for bossing, is that right ?
@kayella
Thanks for the guide and explaining the BV mechanic.

Then BV works similar to how Cyclone works in the Speaker of Dead summoner build, mainly there to apply EE.


Are the other mechanics explained somewhere?
Would love to know the details of the build. Can't really figure them out just by looking at gems or passives.


Also this build looks quite easy to play from the videos.
We are mainly concerned with casting 4 spells?
1. Flame dash for moving.
2. Phase Run to move/escape Do we have high uptime here?
2. Convocation for positioning minions. How often is this needed?
3. Holy Flame Totem/Armageddon for rares/bosses.

I am looking for a build with low APM and this seems to fit the bill.
Should be less strain on my CPU/GPU since there isnt much going on FX wise.
