Im hoping for a build that can do monolith and Arena relatively well. Coming from Grim Dawn im pretty spoiled with about 20 sturdy-ish necro pets so i went with a similar build here, focusing on physical damage with bone curse debuff.
However at level 50 i am worried - this game mobs do AOEs like absolutely insane, those ice golems easily do 1k with a single aoe of theirs. My pets at 500%+ bonus to health still dies to 2 or 3 of those aoes, and its difficult to micro out of them.
on top of that their AI and movement speed isnt very good, half of the time they seem to get stuck trying to get on top of a single mob, or for some reason just run back to me and doing nothing.
I have looked for Wraith builds and honestly i dont like them - spamming for few hundreds of wraiths is such an overkill and make the game a laggy mess. I loved the Grim Dawn approach where you get 20+ tops for necro builds to manage, and you got buffs/debuffs to keep your pets alive. They also had dedicated gear that always provided multiple stats for your pets while some surviability for your own character. Here i feel they are way too squishy and yet not enough stats to build up on their resistance.
