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

First off great job on this guide. It's probably one of the best ones I have seen so far. If minions survive the nerf bat, I would like to play this build for league start of Metamorph. I took the build for a spin just to try it this weekend and made it up to 58. I do have a couple of questions though.

1. Without a triggering wand. Are you manually casting Bone Offering and Desecrate? Or do you just ignore them until you get the crafting recipe?

2. Are you only using Armageddon brand on hard content? I watched a couple of your videos and didn't see you using it.

3. Are Slave Drivers pretty much the go to specter for most content?

I poked around in the thread looking for some of these answers but 732 pages is a lot to look through!

1) It's a significant defensive upgrade and lasts ~15 seconds. Just self-cast it, the trigger is mainly a QoL upgrade. Note that you don't need to cast desecrate all the time. If you just cast bone offering after your spectres have clear a pack you can just keep running.

2) Generally Slave driver DPS is high enough that you only need the EE/curse for bosses or, earlier, tough rare monsters.

3) They are quite strong yes. But there are quite a few other spectres that can easily clear end game, as mentioned by OP in the section "Other Spectres". Last few leagues Solar Guards were (are?) the go-to Spectre.
I've killed Uber Elder w Frost Sentinels last league. They have lower damage but better off-screening potential for faster clear. Goat-man fire raisers also strong.
Thanks for the information. I assume that if I switch Specters then I also need to ensure that whatever I use to trigger EE changes accordingly as well? Armageddon Brand is fire correct?

I only use Brand for boss fights. If you look carefully at my videos, I Flame Dash into monsters to proc EE.

I also manual cast the offering until I can get trigger.

My recommended spectres section has the gems you need to swap out. The gem swaps are more complicated for Pledge build, but I plan to add those later.

All the spectres in my guide are viable, but I only use two spectres: Slave Driver and Goatman Fire Raiser. SD are best at bossing and OK at mapping (short range, high DPS, pierce) and GFR are the best at mapping and good at bossing (long range, good DPS, pierce).

*Solar Guards have been popular because most players just blindly follow streamers or reddit. Goatmen are much better.

Hi. Thank you for amazing guide. It is my first spectres build. I hate leveling. So 93 is my max lvl.

I have few question.

1. Generally. Is my build ok?
2. I crafted on belt str and int. Is it the best option?
3. What about timeless jewel? Brutal Restraint?
4. What about after patch 3.9? Will this build survive?

I want improve jewels and rings and add enchant on boots and gloves.

Your build looks fine.

If you want to get more survivability, you could drop Enduring Bond and finish Scion life. That will get you close to 6k life.

Belt craft is fine.

I don't recommend timeless jewels because you need to sacrifice a lot of passive points for them!

Patch notes are coming soon. I think the build will be fine. I plan to upload a short video review of spectre and summoner changes. Then I will update the guide.

This was my first ever summoner, like, ever! And i freaking love it.

I really hope in 3.9 this can be my league starter, if GGG does not nerf it to the ground.

Thank for the great job!


Edit: https://pastebin.com/3nMv7wDB
This is my POB, i tried to get the same gear as you, but my DPS is half. What could I improve moving forward?


I can't open your PoB pastebin. But, don't worry about PoB numbers so much. How does the build feel when you play? If you can stay close to the build guide, you should have a lot of DPS.

I will definitely play this build again as long as their isn't a HARD NERF to the summoners. I'm okay with a small nerf, as there may be adjustments to the build that can be made to compensate.........I guess time will tell.........

Will this be a good League Starter for
Metamorph league?


If GGG doesn't completely destroy necromancer or spectres, the build will still be a good league starter. I hope there are no major changes.

I will update the build for 3.9 as soon as I can go through the patch notes. I will be changing the PoB pastebin to work with LocalIdentity's updated version of PoB!

Thank you Kay for the amazing, in-depth guide. I've been following it for a few leagues and in 3.9 I will play spectres again. Your love for the build is clearly showing and carefully planned and thought out choices are also visible in the build.

Also, I'm glad Bone Offering is back! I remember it pre-nerf, it was totally bonkers and OP, but I think it is alright even now.

with her gilded purple boots.
"You want my sockets?"
so we got some news tonight

what do you think about it Kay?

- will your leveling guide be good after this zombie nerf?

- since now we need 25 lvl gem for extra spectre. So what will be the easiest way to obtain it?
