[3.11 HSC] Avontuur's Spectremancer | Doryani's Prototype | Boss killer

Welcome to my build guide exile!



Hey, i'm Avontuur and this is my first time, after +5k hours in this game, doing a build guide. I'm not english native speaker so your suggestions are a big help. Feel free to whisp me in game: @AvontuurPrototype

Special thanks to Duque for build image and Bubu el apuesto for Baranite Spectre idea.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Updated 14/7/2020

-Added an advertising section to be honest about the difficulty to do this build.

-Gear update: Ventor's and Eyes of the Greatwolf Talisman prices skyrocket. Probably will make an alternative PoB for Xibaqua Timeless Jewel.

-POBs changes: removed mid and high budget settings, trying to make more streamlined and less confusing progress to endgame.

1.INTRODUCTION & EXPLANATION

The build is based on:


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ADVERSITING <---------------- READ THIS FIRST!!

This is a hard build, if you are looking for a beginner friendly build just don't do it.

Can i delete content, Sirus A8, U-Elder, Shaper: you can do it with a low budget setup, but gearing this build can be a headache and here are the reasons why:

1) Isn't a starter build, you've to switch when you are in Yellow, or Red Maps.

2) A lot of specific uniques and rares (Wrath mana reservation helmet for example).

3)Flasks are very specific too. (Iron Skin, Rumi's...)



WHY I SHOULD PLAY THIS BUILD?

Mainly because you can hit millions of DPS without spending a lot of currency.
Sirus A8 is a joke.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHAT'S THE IDEA?
Nearby enemies have lightning resistance equal to your own. So, we can to stack negative lightning resistance, put some lightning based Spectres and melt all the content. Nearby distance is pretty decent to be honest (tried in PvP. Not sure if 75 units, but similar).

WHAT SPECTRE ARE YOU USING?
Well, there is a lot of Spectres based on Lightning Damage, but i will go with Baranite Thaumaturge.

"
-Baranite Thaumaturge can be found on any map influenced by the Crusader/Baran.


Pros & Cons:

+High DPS with budget investment.
+Good survivability.
+Good clear.
+There's is a lot of Spectres to play with Lightning Damage.
+Can you league start with a normal Spectre necromancer up to level 90. (Highly recommend Kay's Spectre)


-Playstyle is noob friendly, but gearing is advanced.
-Baran ground lightning degen and Eradicator can be dangerous.
-Hard to min-max, some uniques are hard to find.
-Spectres cannot run reflect elemental & hexproof is our enfeeble.


HOW YOU LOWER YOUR RESISTANCE?
Скрытый текст
There are quite a few options to lower your lightning resistance:

1. Obviously, -60 resistance penalty after Act X.
Note: We don't want Alira (+15) or Commander of Darkness ascendancy (+30).

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2.Unique items, we have two option here, examples:

Budget option:


You can hit -48 with Prismatic Catalyst (-24 / -24)

Expensive option:


You can hit -60 with perfect rolls + Prismatic Catalyst (-30 / -30)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3.Curse reflection. Now comes the hardest part of the build, we want to reflect to ourself Conductivity and Elemental Weakness by putting a Curse on Hit setup on Shackles of Wretched.

Example:


To do this we have to grab Whispers of Doom notable in passive tree (you can skip it if you have Awakened Curse on Hit at least level 3).


Now you will have -45 from Conductivity, and -40 from Elemental Weakness.

----->Important note<-----: You have to overcap to (+115) fire and cold resistances at least, to handle Elemental Weakness, i recommend (+125) to not have issues at all.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. Curse effect (you can skip it, just complex maths)

Скрытый текст
Curse effect also applies to you. So, you usually will have:

For all Curses +15%:

+5% From Cluster small node.
+10% If you have 20 quality on Awakened Curse on Hit. (not required at all)

For Conductivity +40%:

+5% From Cluster small node.
+10% If you have 20 quality on Awakened Curse on Hit. (not required at all)
+25% From Cluster Tempt the Storm notable.


Tempt the Storm:
5% increased Cast Speed
25% increased Conductivity Curse Effect
Master of Fear:
Enemies you curse are Unnerved

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final maths with level 20 gems:
Elemental Weakness: -42 to lightning resistance.
Conductivity: -58.5 to lightning resistance.
Total= -100

Final maths with level 20 gems & Awakened Curse on Hit:
Elemental Weakness: -46 to lightning resistance.
Conductivity: -63 to lightning resistance.
Total= -109


WHY YOU SURVIVE?
Скрытый текст
There is some ways to mitigate the lightning damage taken:

1. Life, we need to have a decent pool of life, more than 4,5k. Note: We can get a better life pool with x2 Ventor's Gamble. Note: A nice life pool + %5.6 life regen from Tree + Stone Golem will give us at least 350-400 of minimum life regeneration.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Avian Twins Talisman, we have to make 50% of Lightning Damage from hits taken as Fire/Cold/Physical. Note: Fire is the best option, Cold Damage can freeze us, and Physical will depend on flask effects.

Eyes of the Greatwolf Talisman, best in slot. With this you can do maps braindead.

Example:


Please don't use this:

:pepega:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. Armour now also applies to Lightning Damage taken From Hits, so try to get +1500 base from Armours: Doryani's Prototype + Rare Helmet (Armour Base) + Boots (less important if you use Bones of Ullr)

Example:


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. Flasks, well, now considering you already have a "decent" amount of base armour, can you stack a lot more with Basalt Flask of Iron Skin and Rumi's Concoction.

Example:


Rumi's will give us +3k of base armour (1.500+3.000) and Basalt Flask of Iron Skin will give us %(60-100). So we can easily hit 10k of Armour rating.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5. Glancing Blows and pseudo full block.


This only gonna prevent you to get oneshoted, and not to receive less total damage.

So, we will be casting Armaggedon Brand/Flame Dash/Bone Armour, that gonna be triggering our linked Bone Offering + Desecrate + Spell Cascade with Trigger Socketed Spell when you Use a Skill on Weapon.

This is giving us 27/27 block.



Now, with Rumi's Concoction active flask we can reach 38/37 block (don't care about attack block roll, just about perfect spell block).



Tempest Shield gem on trigger wand will give us 3/3.



We will be 75/75 by Glancing Blows double chance.

Note: If don't want to use Tempest Shield you can reach full spell block with a rare jewel.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------

6. Glorius Vanity Timeless Jewel: give us extra energy shield, around 2k.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------

7. Guard Skills, you can put Bone Armour or Molten Shell instead of Move Only. If you are using Malachai's Artifices, you will have a free red gem socket to put Molten Shell (yes, you can also use Vaal for bossing).



------------------------------------------------------------------------------

8. Optional, Kitava Teachings unique cluster.

Recover is not regen, so we can run cannot regen maps without issues.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

9. Soul of Aarakali pantheon choice will give us:

10% chance to Avoid Lightning Damage from Hits.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

10. Animate Guardian can use Kingmaker, giving us Fortify.



"
Fortify is a buff that grants the player 20% less damage taken from hits for 4 seconds.



WHY NOT ELEMENTAL EQUILIBRIUM?
Скрытый текст
Doesn't work because enemies have Lightning Resistance equal to yours.

:pepehands:

WHY NECROMANTIC AEGIS?
Скрытый текст
Necromantic Aegis is a keystone which can benefit our minions.

The character will no longer benefit from any modifiers on equipped shields including implicit modifiers such as armour rating and chance to block.

I like damage, so, using Victario's Charity for this build cause it grants Frenzy on Hit and Power on Kill to Nearby Allies. We can't hit fast enough with Armaggedon Brand to generate Frenzies, and obviously, we are not killing.



Feel free to try a more defensive shield without this keystone, like: Whakatutuki o Matua, Lioneye's Remorse, Ahn's Eritage, The Surrender or anything else. But this build is focussed on DPS.

Life:

You can use a Magic Bubbling Divine Life Flask of Staunching or Blood of the Karui unique flask.

Utility Flasks:
Скрытый текст


Basalt Flask and Rumi's Concoction unique flask are BiS for survivability:
"
Flasks, well, now considering you already have a "decent" amount of base armour, can you stack a lot more with Basalt Flask of Iron Skin and Rumi's Concoction.

Example:


Rumi's will give us +3k of base armour (1.500+3.000) and Basalt Flask of Iron Skin will give us %(60-100). So we can easily hit 10k of Armour rating.

amazing build
Great on budget. Amazing on high budget!
Looks like an interesting version of the spectre build.
A version with spiders (phys to lightning support) would be great.

I think can work, but i'm not sure if Spectre-based, changing a rare weapon can be an issue: will be losing 1 active Spectre, and Bone Offering trigger.

Thanks for message soundpool.

Why bother with spell cascade for offering?
What's the gem links for Baranite Thaumaturge?
Also, if you want, check out Lyends' version of scinteel. He go pretty good gem links for that spectre.

Spell Cascade is used to keep Disciples of Kitava consuming corpses during boss fights.
Gem links are in "4.Gear & Gems" and PoB, i will try to make them more visible.
I recently saw Lyends guide, is pretty good, makes a lot of damage too, and most importantly, is better for survival.
My idea when i've created this guide is: make a build with 30-40ex which works similar to most expensive ones.
Thanks for feedback ericchongws.

It truly looks like a unique build!

One question if I may and this is more my lack of understanding. I see that you picked Enduring bond. Do skills like bone offering, desecrate, etc trigger that passsive so you always have 30% increased damage? The reason I ask is because I noticed that that part of the tree has a lot of minion duration for Phantasms and Raging Spirits. Those two you don't have in the build.

Thank you in advance for a response!




oh and also.. I've never really lasted long enough for end game. Where are the Baranite Spectres? :)

That's right, we have "Minions deal 30% increased Damage if you've used a Minion Skill Recently (It refers to the past four seconds)" by trigger in wand.

The Enduring Bond notable and all nodes depending are giving me a insane amount of DPS (like 300k DPS per minion on mid-budget configuration).

Total:
Minions deal 48% increased Damage.
Minions have 4% increased Cast Speed (we don't care about Attack Speed)

Baranite Thaumaturge can be found on any map influenced by the Crusader/Baran.


Thanks for message Pracis.
