[3.8] Kay's Spectre Summoner | All Bosses | League Starter | Levelling Guide | SSF | PS4/XBox




Welcome to my build guide. I specialise in spectres and have created two spectre summoner builds:

Wand & Shield
This build is focused on having high survivability while still having good DPS. It can take you from a fresh league start all the way to Uber Elder on cheap or self-crafted gear. This build is also designed to be playable on Solo Self Found and PS4/Xbox.

Pledge of Hand / EB & MoM
This build is focused on having massive DPS while maintaining good survivability. It is a showcase of the immense power of spectres, but it requires expensive equipment and rare uniques that are not available in early league.

These two builds are frequently tweaked & updated thanks to the theorycrafting, suggestions and ideas discussed within the pages.

If you have a question about the build, could you please post it here in the build guide? I cannot always answer questions in-game.

HOW TO SUMMON SPECTRES WHILE USING PLEDGE OF HANDS

There is a trick to summoning your spectres one by one even though you have greater spell echo built into Pledge.

1. You must have a level 20/21 Raise Spectre in slot 1 of your Pledge.
2. Have a fully linked off hand (can be a wand), again have level 20/21 Raise Spectre in slot 1.
3. Desecrate & Summon with your off hand wand.
4. Swap back to Pledge. The spectre should not despawn if you did #1 & #2.


NOTE: If you do not have Raise Spectre in slot 1 in both weapons, your spectres will despawn when you weaponswap.

Special notes on summoning RVAs

There are several types of RVA. The corpses all look the same. The only way to know which one you have is to desecrate and raise the spectre. Lightning RVAs have a blue lightning + dark flame effect on their hands. If the RVA has a different effect, you need to go to another room in the temple or reload the vaal outpost and try again.


See: poedb for more details.

HOW DOES ELEMENTAL EQUILIBRIUM WORK?

"
Enemies you hit with Elemental Damage temporarily get +25% Resistance to those Elements and -50% Resistance to other Elements

The effect lasts 5 seconds or until being overwritten.

Trap, Mine, and Totem skills trigger EE ... Minions do not trigger EE.

https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Elemental_Equilibrium

Any elemental spell you use will proc EE on all enemies that you hit. Your minions cannot proc EE, but they will benefit from its effects.

Example:
Slave Driver spectres use a lightning spell. So, you hit a boss with Armageddon Brand which is fire damage. It will proc EE: monsters will get +25% fire res and -50% lightning and cold res.


Elemental Equilibrium appears as pink circles under monsters.

WHY IS SPELL ECHO IN THE LINKS?

"
Spell Echo is a support gem that makes linked spell gems repeat themselves after the initial cast.

Spell Echo only works for spells cast by an actual player or minion

https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Spell_Echo_Support

This means that both the player and minions will benefit from the repeated cast, as well as the increased cast speed. Spell Echo will more than double your spectres' DPS.

Note 1: Wand & Shield Build
Spell Echo will cause Raise Spectre to repeat, so you need to remove it before raising spectres. Remember to put the gem back in when you are finished.

Note 2: Pledge of Hands Build
Spell Echo stacks with Greater Spell Echo. It will give a 3rd repeat with 105% more Damage and 150% increased area. See: official wiki for more details.

HOW DO I GET 1/2/3/4/5 SPECTRES?


1. RAISE SPECTRE GEM LEVEL

The level of your Raise Spectre gem determines the base number of spectres. You will get 1 spectre from gem level 1-10, 2 spectres from 11-20, 3 spectres from 21-30 and 4 spectres at 31*.


2. DEATH ATTUNEMENT PASSIVE SKILL

Death Attunement gives +1 spectre. It can be found at the top left of the tree.


3. ITEMS WITH +1 MAXIMUM NUMBER OF SPECTRES

NOTE: +1 chest is a rare delve drop; it cannot be crafted.


4. INCREASING SKILL GEM LEVEL

Unnatural Strength ascendancy passive gives +2 level to the gem.


Items can also give +1 level to raise spectre or minion gems.


Boots and Convoking wand give global +1. Helmet gives +2/3 only when Raise Spectre is slotted in the helmet.

Empower 4 will give +3 levels if it's linked to Raise Spectre.


HOW ABOUT 6 SPECTRES?






It requires a lot of investment to get 6 spectres. You will also lose overall damage because you have to swap a damage support gem for Empower.


Firstly you will need 4 spectres on the skill gem:


1. LEVEL 21 RAISE SPECTRE


2. +1 MINION GEM LEVEL WAND


3. +1 SPECTRE GEM LEVEL BOOTS


4. +3 MINION GEM LEVEL HELMET


5. EMPOWER 4


6. UNNATURAL STRENGTH ASCENDANCY



Lastly, you will need +2 maximum number of spectres:

1. DEATH ATTUNEMENT


2. +1 SPECTRE CHEST FROM DELVE


CAN I DO ELEMENTAL REFLECT MAPS?

In short, no you cannot do reflect maps.



Almost all spectres will die quickly because they do elemental damage and their DPS is much higher than their regen/leech.

However, there is one exception: Risen Vaal Advocate. They have a base 405% life. This makes them incredibly tanky and able to simply leech/regen their way through reflect maps. However, their DPS is much lower than Slave Drivers.See spectre section for more details.


T16 Mapping | 18% ele reflect: https://youtu.be/X_rAjVaHEx8

WHY DID YOU PUT * NEXT TO UBER ATZIRI?

The Slave Drivers will instaphase Atziri, but they will also instantly die if they hit the mirror clone. So you need to be very quick and careful with positioning your spectres.

Here's a full run from 3.7: https://youtu.be/gRaieNyJgRg?t=150

At 2:50, one spectre hit the mirror clone and died instantly.

CAN YOU CHECK MY GEAR? WHAT SHOULD I UPGRADE?

There are 3 things you need to do:

1. Check the gear sections in the Wand & Shield and Pledge builds for suggested items.

2. Make sure your spectres are in a 6-link.

3. Stack life on all your gear. You should have a minimum of 100 life on your gloves, belt, rings. Other items will vary depending on whether you are using uniques or rares.

That's basically it.

The DPS is definitely there for a deathless kill, but I have yet to do it deathless, though. Working on it.

This is a strictly worse version of a SG+Skele build. Your fire-eaters clear slower than pierce+faster proj SGs, and your single-target is worse than pseudo 5-linked skele. Plus walking around in 3.3 with 1.4k HP sans Visage/Wrappings is just asking to die.

SG+Skele is certainly a good build, I agree with you there. However, the point of this build was to see if FEs could replace TVs without needing FGs or some other minion as clear speed helpers. I think it succeeds; it certainly feels a lot better than TVs without Dyadus.

1.4k HP without shav's is asking to die in any league. It's managable though - I've done a full deathless chayula, for example. Also, the build is really meant for T16+Shaper+Uber Elder, so I never really considered getting a shav's. But, I'll see if I can borrow a 6L shav's to link to the build, when I can. Thanks for the suggestion.

Hi, sorry for the late reply. I've been busy tweaking this build for Uber Elder.
As a result, I've had to update the guide because 'High DPS' wasn't viable for Uber Elder.

I've simplified the build to just one setup: https://pastebin.com/a5L8k51t
