@boardman21 I have linked the Fire minion leveling build you posted yesterday.

Here is the link everyone that Boardman used to level a fire minion necromance:Last Epoch | 1 to 82 Fire Minion Necromancer | Leveling Guide | 0.8.3E - YouTube

It is super helpful and i have leveled a character to 30 incredibly quickly.

Boardman thanks for the great build and the leveling guide.

Hi there, I love this build and it’s really simillar to the one I play with great sucess so far, my relaxing 1hand (taking care of baby) build!

some thought for thoses who want some variation:

  1. chest and feet are very vauable slot to have + crit/dammage/fire dammage on pet, so I go NOT low life, but with sinathia 1h and shield

  2. just add 1/2 point in life leech and your skeleton will never dies! I am level 100, playing around 200 ish coruption with no worries

  3. I also got all the +skill for minion and fire minion dammage maxed I chose the 2 immortal FIREwarth instead of dread shade, like that I dont have to cast anything and they really do big DPS. after it’s hard to say if dread shade will be better here?

Hey I’m loving the build so far but I have a similar question to Volcko. Is it possible to switch either Volatile Zombie or Dread Shade for Fire Wraths w/ the node that gives them permanent up time? :thinking:

Otherwise, loving the build so far :slight_smile: Thanks!

You sure can, although the permanent wraiths are unlikely to have a higher dps output than what either of those 2 skills do, you can definitely do it.

the pastebin does not work properly , we have tried it in more people

Save the github file. It will be a .txt file.
Click File > Save As
Save the file into the loot filter file as “filter name.xml” MUST HAVE THE " "
This will convert the .txt file to a .xml file

Ive been playing this in 0.8.4 and i reallly love it. Finally got to 81 and equipped dragonflame edict. Now im wondering if it’s really an upgrade, you see i’ve been using reach of the grave with an exalted copper aegis with 86% minion damage. Is the staff really BIS ?
Thank you for all your work!

Nope it is not a bis ypu can use crafted or even a reach of the grave if you like

Somewhat off topic question for ya, if you don’t mind.

As you say, the staff isn’t exactly BiS, which i can see. As I am also currently using reach of the grave and an exalted catalyst.

My questions is regarding the lastepochtools site, when looking up items/uniques, say for instance the reach of the grave wand. It will tell you a timeline target to farm. Does the item have a higher inc % chance to drop in said timeline? Or is it something more like that timeline is the highest lvl for the wand, and going higher would add more uniques to the pool? Hmm think I just answered my own question now lol, but would still like your opinion :slight_smile:

I would like to farm up myself a Reach with 2+LP plus a crafted catalyst.


Edit: Nevermind, there are no good wand affixs to bother farming for a LP Reach lol

That’s usually because said timeline has a chance to spawn nodes that give a unique or set staff as the bonus reward. However that specific staff is a boss drop from the Dragon Emperor.

No (though that is a thing).
