Looks awesome! I have been considering adding Enduring Cry with second wind in place of something in my line up, I just don't know what yet. I no longer need Fortify on shield charge so I may try running with no movement skill for a while as I don't like shield charge any way.

One note on your setup that you may already be aware of but I wanted to mention any way:

Bone Armor and Immortal Call are both tagged with "guard" and as such they share a cool down. There are going to be times when Bone Armor is in cool down and you get whacked and IC won't be able to proc.


Oh damn. I forgot about that. Back to the drawing board. Bone Armour is awesome but so is Enduring Cry + Immortal Call. :x

I earlier ran Mistress of Sacrifice with Bone Offering for max block (with Glancing Blows), but Bone Barrier/Armour is an amazing boost to minion survivability in comparison.

I tossed my CWDT/Purifying flame set up as I felt it was the weakest part of my gems.


I really like Purifying Flame. It's like a mini life flask on an auto-trigger. The heal is % based, which means it works awesome with CWDT Level 2. I put in Immortal Call as well there based on it, but...... hmm. Wondering if the conflict with Bone Armour is a dealbreaker.
Play around with Immortal Call on CwDT and see what it's like. Purifying Flame is best on a low level CwDT gem. But Immortal Call may not interfere often if it's linked to a higher level CwDT gem...I guess it depends how you use Bone Armour.

Small update on my gear:

I didn't like Harvest (and I'm still not very fond of it), but I just crafted this beauty in the garden:

!


I downloaded your RiotSlut character into POB and have a question for you.

Why are you so overly invested in ele resists? Your numbers are through the roof.

You are +70, +58 and +58 OVER the 75 cap for all 3. These are the highest I have ever seen :)


If there is not a specific reason for this (and there may be, I just don't see it from first glance), I would highly recommend changing your amulet anointment from Diamond Skin to Grave Pact.


I always aim at 109 % all elemental resistances so I don't have to care at all about maps with "cursed with elemental weakness". I don't like to have to rely on flasks to get rid of curses.

Grave Pact would be perfect... unfortunately I wasn't very lucky with Cassia and thus have only a very humble collection of oils. (that's the fate of those who don't trade)
Now that I turned the amulett into a talisman I wouldn't be able to change the anointment, anyway...

Maybe I will have better luck in the future,... new amulett and new anointment for RiotSlut... or I just leave this rather unpleasant league behind and go back to my real home, permanent league, where a 6-linked Queen's Hunger is waiting for me :)
Overwhelmed by Path of Exile? You might want to have a look at Wrecker_of_Days' beginner-friendly guides. One-click-wonders that do not require any specific items to conquer the campaign and the Atlas: https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/2606288/page/1

Thanks Wrecker!!! I missed this! I have been using Brutality with the skele's but according to POB Maim is just better clearly better.

And yet it is the exact opposite with the Zombies, where Brutality is better than maim.....

strange...

but for now I have to trust POB so I am going to change out Brutality for Maim in my Skele set up.
It's funny how it all works out hey? I don't like Brutality...but it gives such good damage that I have it in two of my guides ;). I'm mean, I was going to have Skeletons in the build no matter what because Vaal Skeletons is just to awesome. So when I was shuffling my gems around between leagues, after I decided to go pure physical, I put Skeletons with minion damage and the aura. I then went into PoB later to to input it all (cause I do all my "gem'ing" on paper) and I couldn't believe that the Skeletons did more damage than a 5 linked zombie. I thought they'd do good damage...but not the most damage. So crazy. There's just so much to play with in this game. It's awesome.

Thank you everyone for all the great responses and replies. I really love and appreciate seeing everyone being so kind and helpful. Thanks for making guide writing so fun. And though I (or others) don't always respond to it, we all love seeing people's gem changes, gear rolls, and RNG luck.

Thanks Everyone. You're the best.

Hey thanks Wrecker! Made a few levels on the curses (7 or 8 I think) and now they have a good range and noob me I can see them work! :) I still have to respec like a quarter of my tree because I switched from Animate Weapon, but the build is already doing good with just so few levels on the gems.

From my limited experience with Poe, I concur that skeletons kick ass. On my other necro zombies are on a 5L and they are good but for killing stuff I always spam my skellies and they do the job. But I play mostly yellow and some reddish map, so I think I am far from understanding how tough the higher levels can be.

I want to say Thank You, so far the build is quite fun and stress free, and I hope I can learn more and more about the game through it.

That's all for now you all have a good day :)

In order for me:

4 link skeles -> 5 link phantasms -> 5 link zombies

The zombies are last in the damage department (not too much less than the phantasms though). I guess they make up for it in QOL because they never die.

Next league I may change this build slightly to have a 6 link skele just to see how much damage they can really do. The jump in damage from 4 links to 6 links is typically huge for almost any skill.

I'm really surprised how much damage skeletons do being linked to Maim...(Thanks again!)[/span]

hi, i see that you use maim for skels so i have a question, maybe you already explain, i apologize if that is the case

my question is : maim is link with flesh and stone in the guide, so did you ditch flesh and stone ?

I still am keeping Flesh and Stone for now (I don't link with Maim because I lack sockets).

my minions still will benefit from Flesh and Stone because of this stat on Flesh and Stone:

Enemies Maimed by this Skill take (13-16)% increased Physical Damage

So based on Grunkle Bob's post about the helmet, I trolled the trade site and found this for really cheap. It seems like I could make some sort of 7 link skeleton set up with this but I am really confused on how Concentrated Effect works with minons (if at all)




I am off to crank out some POB numbers to see what is what. I will inform when I am ready.
