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

"
@HakaBb: yes, can see your character now. If you start dying too often, you could look at upgrades to your rings/boots/shield/amulet as all of those could each be providing 60-80+ extra HP. Upgrading all that gear and you'd be close to 6K HP, or at least 5500 which is a lot more solid.

@wizerdlol: sure, Precise Commander could be okay. AW have pretty decent base crit so it could scale with additional investment, Vicious Bite, etc.


Thanks. Yep, just realised almost none of my stuff had life on it... Was too eager to upgrade my dps and minions haha.
I will try and find better stuff.
I also took 3 PS to find 50 dex to avoid the trouble of getting them on gear. There is one +30dex that only costs 1 pts on this tree, maybe that could be mentioned for people struggling on dex, just the time to find out proper gear and refund the pts. As for the avatar of fire, I find it helps a lot for leveling / mapping before finding the good gear.
Maybe I am too lazy for this game :D
Fought A8 five times now, manage it deathless twice all with an build that cost less then 10 exa.

P.S. The budget version from the OP will take you into A5 deathless but from A6 onwards the animated weapons will die often making your dps terrible in the last phase. I suggest doing what I did and just add more regen/leech clusters + bone offering (I used 12 passive large and 1 medium cluster for this which will cost you less then 1 exa).
Super fun build, easily gets you into red maps wearing basically junk. Crafting leagues makes a lot of those end game gear pretty attainable. Any thoughts on Unwavering stance? Its close by and i find majority of my deaths come from three sources, getting stunned, getting frozen, corrupted blood + bladefall. (Last two when i'm not fast enough hitting my flask :P.

Okay, does that solve the stun issue too?
Path of Bulding shows me only 10% of the damage, compared with other animate weapon skill trees. I crafted a shank in path of building correctly. What do i miss, to get the rest of the damage? If i add my gear to other trees, i will have still 5+times more damage, as in my tree.

You need to set the Configuration settings in POB
- Minions use power/frenzy charges (from spectres)
- Enemy hit by fire damage (for EE)
- Enemy is shocked (18% effect)
- Enemy is chilled

Other places you're missing damage-
- Feeding Frenzy linked to Carrion Golem
- 4th green socket in Triad Grip
- Elemental Army for your support minions

With that shield, Glancing Blows isn't helping your defense. Also I don't think a 12-passive cluster jewel is really worth it.

In general the passive tree seems to have wandered a bit...

Thank you! I will work on it tomorrow :)

Ah, i got it now! My Shield needs to "trigger on block", good to know^^

The feeding frenzy link was on the top of my list. I runned out of currency to craft the 3 link on the shield

***Edit did the most changes. Moved from 50k to 300k total damage!
The cluster path will give me 20% more damage + 30% minion movement. isnt it worth?

Nice build. I’ve played Animate Weapon since Sacrifice of the Vaal. I play Standard since I can’t play much.

I respec my ManaBreach character from United in Dream chaos poison since it was nerfed after Breach.

I made 4R, 4B, and 4G Triad Grips and was wondering where to go.

I played physical in the meantime but I think you hit on it that bosses have armour now. Elemental Equilibrium is a huge boss killer since they can’t stop it and EE stacks with everything else.

The Hatred double dip thing decided it for me but 4G is the crappiest sockets. You can actually run in the 4G gloves play Animate Weapon + Added Cold Damage + Hypothermia + Faster Attacks/Culling Strike and it kinda works if you’re sorting your other gear out. I did this while transitioning from chaos Animate Weapon build to cold.

I have a 6L Cloak of Tawm’r Isley but it’s really hard to color. Cloak is ok but has been power crept over. Minions blind is now just 1 of 4 mods on an Abyss jewel. Items dropping Magic matters way less now that the best drops are currency, cards, and locked boss loot tables. I’ve only found 1 Merciless weapon drop the whole time I’ve used it. The minion leech is the best mod so maybe Damage on Full Life works.

I switched to a 3W socket Vaal Regalia and went CI. I can kill anything in maps and I prefer to run quality rare corrupt T16s only. I however can't kill Sirus 8 before I lose all portals, partially from lag. I can kill Sirus 1 deathless so I'll make my way up the numbers see the max. I can delve 200 or so but around 230ish the weapons just die instantly to monster damage so I try to keep it just at the 200ish level.

I'm looking for your feedback since your PoB seems way stronger than mine despite my Standard gear. Here are my questions: https://pastebin.com/VHVqvcrF
- Your damage is 4 times mine. ? Is this mostly from excellent cluster jewels? I just started to roll mine since I missed that league. Maybe it's also your flesh offering? Not sure. I could use more damage if you can find it since bossing is important for this character's goals.
- I dropped a Bottled Faith and I'm now using it. It seems amazing since it regens weapon health and gives them more damage multiplier. Is it a stronger yet super high budget version to run that rare cluster jewel mod that gives minions crit + crit multiplier + Bottled Faith?
- I don't have any mana or smoothness issues. I also have lots of minion movement speed which does work.
- Squeezing in Discipline requires a reduced mana reserved mod so I have Self Control. I also run Bone Offering sometimes since blocking lets my energy shield recharge. I'm at 7500ES and Wicked Ward, but no block ES% gain. It's possible I shouldn't even use Disipline and have another damage aura or an Aspect or something.
- I've been crafting some rare minion 2Handers just to learn and in case Harvest to go core (it seems too broken, though). I was wondering if you happen to know the best Animate Weapon 6link, like a 2H Mace with Fortify and +1 all gems +multimod (+2 support gems, Minion attack speed), or something like that. I also have a crafted bow with +1 gems and +103% minion damage, just in case that happens to play better. I think all the 2Hander possibilites would require life not CI, though.
