Hai man, nice build. Just a quick question, would you reconmend this one or the melee one for a pretty new player? (i am currently leveling the melle one, but i am missing the weapon)

This one is much more new player friendly.

Super sweet build. Easy to convert over to range archer/mage!

How do they fight against Lagon? Are they really fighting or are they just visiting the area, like they do sometimes? I’m not worried at all for all the rest, they will be awesome! :slight_smile:

They actually attack lagon :slight_smile:

Wow, nice, thanks! :slight_smile:

Only 60ish, but have the uniques…dang can pretty much stand in bad stuff spamming ward and most mobs are dead before they come onto my screen lol. I am looking forward to Lagon on this character to see if I can stand in the the claw and smash :slight_smile:

I’m currently in the campaign with a new Necro, leveling for this build. Right now I’m on a mixed build (Wandering Spirits, Spirit Plague, Skeleton Archers), but I’ll fully switch to this build later, either at Mastery or at level 34 I suppose.

It isn’t Lagon himself that is troublesome for minions, it is the tentacle phase where it can get a bit weird. I have tried 3 different necro builds and all have struggled with the bad minion AI when trying to prioritize the correct targets (for some reason when I press “A” to direct my minions they first return to me and then go for the target). However I’m thinking that the extra projectiles might help with the wonky AI there. Have to respec my necro later this week to see how it goes.

I also had trouble during phases 1 and 3, against Lagon himself. But I think it was mainly with melee skeletons.

the gameplay from 0:33 to 1:24 Shows the entire lagon fight.

Finally an ice minion build BIG TY!!! Mage time to shine, or maybe chill :slight_smile:


@boardman21 so I made my testing with this build and I am really surprised how DPS there is. as you said in the video maybe something with ice arrow? I was expecting it to be really less DPS than my fire minion build that have on top of archer and mage around 50 fre wraths…but I dont see much diffrence?
And for both build I kept my min-max minion gear, as a main necro level 100 got really good one, so maybe I over DPS in both build?
Anyway a really good one!

It would be a good build if the minion control wasn’t so bad.

How do you get 100% crit chance?
I cant get there …

Egoism in dread shade does only work on ONE minion if the text is “what the game does”

Is it really a good idea to blind a ranged minion with your dread shade? Guess the less crit gets overwriten by always crit but doesnt it miss a lot?

The mages get 100% no problem.

The archers need shade. They have roughly 70% sithout shade

Also your math is incorrect on the chart.

285% of 33% base is over 120% crit chance not 94%
