[3.15] Cold ANIMATE WEAPON Summoner | League-Start & Leveling Guide | Low Budget, High DPS!

AW has no problems with bosses, they melt in mere seconds (<4-5sec for all elderslayers except drox obviously, ~20sec Oshabi etc) with investment. Without investment it might be 2-3x times slower but it'll still feel you have tons of deeps.

For major QOL if you got a 6l you can use unleash in AW instead of bladefall for mapping, summoning 4+ weapons at once speeds up mapping immensely. (without 6L AW your dps will probably take a huge hit from using elefocus/whatever you swap for unleash to enable this change).

Unleash sounds interesting, but yeah hard to make work, i can't really remove anything cuz its all damage related lol, maybe minion damage or hypothermia. i blaze through mapping as it is just summoning 5 AW from bladefall then start running and just animating red weapons from loot filter

I was thinking of replacing Steelskin in my CWDT setup, as i just realized it conflicts with Bone Armor, Enfeeble is about the only good option right?

If i straight up removed CWDT i'd have 2 empty gem slots for something else not sure though

You don't really need CWDT, glancing blows+Rumi+bone armor make an excellent defensive mechanic, as long as you keep moving and don't make obvious mistakes you just won't die. Atm it looks like I'll be able to hit 100 just by mapping without any breach/harb rotations on AW, if no misplays happen you just stay alive. Lost an AG on Sirus once, though :(

Mapping wise yeah, we don't ever need unleash since you can theoretically don't summon any weapons at all to start the map, carrion golem alone is capable of killing some trash mobs :)

Hi,

I decided to try out this build this league, and I'm loving it so far! Just two questions that I have though.

1. It says on the guide that the Surrender can apply intimidate for extra damage, but I've checked the surrender shield, I don't see anywhere that it can apply intimidate? It only has it on the non-upgraded The Anticipation shield, is there something I'm not getting?

2. With lvl 25 raise specter we can raise 3 specters. On top of the power and frenzy chieftains, I'm not sure which 3rd specter is best? Redemption sentries seem to just be OP in general, using it for extra chills and freezes. Same as frost sentinels. I heard that Kitava Demons have culling strike, though I"m not sure that's true. There's also the Undying evangelist for the bubble.

For now what I've decided though is Ruins Hellions, with the rallying cry's taunt and damage debuff on the enemy, as well as if I understood the skill correctly it gives some nice bonus damage to our weapons as well.

I was wondering what your thoughts were, or if you are running some other specters?

Cheers

You are correct about The Surrender - I had it confused for the un-upgraded version, which I've used in the past on an Animate Guardian to get Intimidate. I'll fix that reference when I next update, as the Surrender does indeed not help DPS.

About spectres - I think the best 3rd one to use is Arena Master, which spawns from Drox's portals. It applies a very strong 40% movement/cast/attack speed buff every 8 seconds. I'll put that in the guide as well in next update.
Significant update: some tweaks to support gem setup, new POB for 3.11, as well as a video for the new league which I hope will be helpful. Check it out!
Hey guys, need help with POB. Not sure if my dps is really that low or that I mis-configured it. Feels like it should be showing more.

Would also appreciate any advice on gears or jewels. Thanks in advance!!

I think you just need to make sure that POB is showing the correct Animate Weapon gem (the one with supports, not one that you're leveling off-hand). Also need to set the shock effect from Skitterbots in Config. After doing that, I see 388K DPS per weapon, or 6.6M DPS with all 17 - pretty good!

As a note, you're not benefiting from Glancing Blows much at all right now, as you need a shield that gives Recover Life on Block in order for it to help mitigate damage more.

Hi, thanks a lot for your reply. Will save up for a better shield, maybe that's why i've been dying quite a bit. Regarding my dps, will it come close to 700k(like yours) with your cluster setup? Or do i need the saqawal also?
Keep in mind that 700k DPS is with Multistrike in for single target. With Melee Splash, the damage is pretty comparable between our builds. Saqawal doesn't do all that much for DPS, it's just nice for faster clearing.

I do recommend going for cluster jewels though, they're a lot more efficient than the nodes on the tree.
