Lvl 43 planner links to lvl 35

Not gonna lie, this build was very ordinary to play. I almost ditched it. Then I hit lvl 50 and the fun kicked in.

Hands down the easiest Liath and Lagon fight ever.

I’d suggest for levelling early on to focus on grave bond, ravenous and unholy trinity while using curse of perseverance - obviously will not be possible for first char but it is such a powerhouse on lower level I feel like this just needs to be mentioned.

There are definitely much better ways of leveling from 1 to 40 for this build, however most people wanted to see it leveled up from level 1 with no respeccing so this is what it ended up being, coming together quite powerfully level 40-50.

I respecced a level 42 Death Seal Lich and what a kick in the pants the respec was. Trying to catch up is painful. I’m almost caught up at level 45. I’m at 11 for Summon Skeletons, Hunger souls and Aura of Decay and level 13 at Reaper form. Hungering Souls has very little kick to them right now and my Summon Skellies only summons 2, not 3. Must have forgot a point somewhere.
Should I be using Reaper form at this point or do I still need to level it up a bit before starting to use it?
The leveling video freezes up at the level 35 stage.

The guide was meant to be more of a start at level 1. It doesnt really matter what class/skills your using respeccing everything and transition at level 40ish is painful on any build. That being said this one is probly even slightly worse and even from levle from level 1 it just starts to come together around level 45. So your close. You can indeed use reaper as soon as you get it. At this point your main focus should be getting exactly 3 minions as thats a 150% damage boost for hungering souls. Get deathseal casting hungering souls. And inside hungering souls take those big juicy damage nodes.
