Run around planting stationary wraiths, which scale flat damage with a bit of armour shred.
Superb build for casual players - easy to cap resists, easy to play, very flexible with gear, no targeting and full damage output while you kite circles of death. Can kill things ahead of you so you don’t have to backtrack to pick up shards and loot.
Summon skeleton → Skeleton archers with all the extra skeleton and more damage nodes
Skeletal Mage → Take the flat damage, the extra skeletal mage, then go for pyromages if that’s your thing, cryomages if you like the chance to freeze and stun.
Summon Wraith → go for flame wraith nodes, mana efficiency, added necro damage and locus of death to make them totem style
Golems → take the blood golem, all the taunt nodes. His job is to draw aggro and give you life on hit
transplant → take bone armour, minion damage, pools of blood and 30% mana back on cast.
Take all the minion attack/cast speed nodes, some minion regen nodes, then all the armour shred nodes and all the minion flat damage nodes. Cap it off with vitality, then minion resists and armour per minion. You also want ‘veins of malice’ to give them frenzy when you transplant.
Reach of the grave - to keep your skeletons and skelly mages alive
2 X flame wraith idols - to guarantee a flame wraith every cast
I found the unique ‘Melverns writ’ to fit well - it’s nice to have a crossbow guy help you out and the archers hit very hard with this item equipped.
Whatever you can find or craft which includes:
Resists, Health, Vitality, life regen, minion regen, mana (scales well with transplant), mana regen, armour, move speed, minion damage, minion levels, minion life, crit avoidance.
Cast wraiths way ahead of you. They start clearing things while you and your ranged minions catch up. The wraiths are great for blocking projectiles. Anything that rushes you gets taunted by the golem. If you are in a bad spot, transplant away. If you are out of mana, transplant. Your cast speed is great, so it you hit a screen full of baddies, just spam all your mana on wraiths, then transplant to give them all frenzy, and recover some mana.
