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

Wanted to say thanks for the guide! Used it as a basis for my build, and I've been loving to so far. Decided to go the phys route because I hated triad grip not giving defensives. Still have quite a few minor upgrades and a helmet reroll to do before it's truely min-maxxed, but this core might be a good option for people who want to try an ES variant.



When it's fully done, sitting at around 9-10k ES, 86/86/87/75 res, and 2.5-3.3m per weapon depending upon pride time.

I jumped into the league to test out the build on some new mechanics - still works great.

Update to 3.14 posted, changes are minimal.

Recommended defensive setup for lategame: invest into block and use Bone Offering/Rumi's Concoction.
Thank you for the update!
Love this build.
Are you going to update it for 3.15? If so I will start with this build =) (Played a built last/this league that has not been updated - was a bit of a pain) - so thanks for a feedback in advance whether this is going to be my guide or not!

If there are any big changes I'll update it. I haven't decided whether to play 3.15 myself yet.

The core build has stayed the same since 3.10, all that really changes from league to league is finding different ways to build late-game defenses.
I am follow your build and it is good.
The main problem I face is that the maintenance time of summons is too short. I need to stop and use skills frequently to re-summon when I clear the map.
This is very deadly during boss battles because I have no time to re-summon the weapons.
After reading through the patch notes I think change to this build is minimal.

Dash/Second Wind have been killed, so instead we go to Flame Dash and have an extra green socket to link Culling Strike to Bladefall.

The mana modifiers for all skills have been increased so spamming out spells is harder. In the tree I show in OP there is no mana investment, but you may wish to take Sovereignty node (reduced reservation) or Dynamo near templar (mana and reduced cost). Unleash Support makes mana issues much easier to tolerate.

(edited) Skitterbots + Bonechill now has a higher mana reservation, requiring significant mana investment, so I'd suggest not using Bonechill.

As another option, drop Skitterbots (or get significant mana reservation reduction) so that you can use Haste as a second aura and go zoom-zoom.

Animate Weapon has better base crit than most minions and with the buffs to Crit Damage that becomes a good support.

The Unleash and Minion Speed gems are excellent for utility/QOL and fix a lot of problems - either with having to take too long raising minions, so make use of those if you find parts of the playstyle lacking.

In general, if having trouble with survivability, I recommend switching Bone Offering in for Flesh Offering and investing into shield block nodes. The passive tree shown is generic so use your own judgement.

Good luck everyone in the 3.15 league!

Will there be an updated PoB?
There might be an updated PoB eventually but not at the start of the league.

Skitterbots + Bonechill no longer works to boost cold damage, reducing mana reservation slightly.

Hi bro, after update my PoB, I find out Bonechill still work with skitterbots. When I untick Bonechill, dps go down.
Why did you said they no longer work?
