This looks great. Just started playing and i’m going to try and loosely follow this build.

Thanks for this.


This is fun stuff! It’s pity the soundlag is most annoying. I wish I could just lower minions sound,

Hey Dude! Great Guide! Just starting out the game!

Quick Check → on summon skelly. is there a need for the sweeping strike (inc melee AOE) since we are all archer now?

Welcome to the community!

Nope you can change it :slight_smile:

What weapon with what craft to use before I get the Dragonflame Edict?

You can use reach of the grave or any weapon you want with cast speed and minion damage. The build will do just fine even without the Dragonflame until you get it.

great! thanks!

The dragonflame is a drop only unique, if im not wrong? How about reach of the grave? possible to gamble it and which base/level to look for?

Thanks again!

Dragonflame edict is indeed boss drop only.

Reach of the grave can be gambled by gambling profane wands.


I’m pretty new to this game, so I do not understand why you recommend “cast speed” with this build. Would you be so kind and explain it? Does this affix also works for minions?

Cast speed increases how fast you can spam wraiths. Since there on a timer by default health degen. The faster you cast the more you can have at once

Thank you for the information. I appreciate it.

Was wondering the order you chose your specialize skills… Seems like a long time to pick up the skellies?

This build was a respec’d build and the order of specializations skills from left to right is not how it was leveled up.

Skeles are the first skill you get and spec into :slight_smile:

Hello Boardman,
thx for this amazing build. Love the kind of playstyle minion-builds.
But what weapon can i use instead of dragonflame.
Can u help me to choose a good one for forwardgrinding to the endgamebuild.

Statpriority and weaponclass will be helpfull… :slight_smile:

Thx for support

Welcome to the community!

For a crafted item, Any Sword/axe/staff/sceptre will work just fine
2 handed will allow higher %

On it minion Spell damage is all your worried about.

When I cast Dread Shade on skelly or mage it drains life indefinitely. Does DS stay on till minion dies?

I mean minion regen is faster then the drain…

It only last for 20 seconds, then you gotta recast it on them.

Hi Boardman, love your guides! I was able to breeze through all the timelines with this build. Battling to get through the empowered mono echoes. Get one-shot a lot and minions take longer to kill monsters. If you find the time, can you perhaps offer some wisdom for me?
