Tanky Wolves for no investment 0.8d Beastmaster


Hey travelers,
Here’s a tanky wolf build that (aside from unique’s) only requires 2 (that’s right 2!) affixes dedicated to minions for a nice tanky presence. These wolves stood lagon’s beam, the emperors nasty necrotic breath and 100 waves in the arena without a single guy dropping even once. Not bad for some beginner friendly gear, and most the affixes hoarded for ourselves! Take a looksie and check out the new long very detailed guide video that explains all the interactions and even variations of the build to better fit your playstyle!

This is a Part 1 video of a 5 part series showing the best way to make each companion itself as tanky as possible for minimal investment.


Build Overview

  • High Companion Survivability
  • OK damage
  • It’s a minion build


  • Initially posted January 15th 2021. Viable for 0.8d.




Summon Wolf
Summon Frenzy Totem
Ice thorn
Eterras Blessing


You can run any idols you want, in this build we run melee attack speed for minions and increased aspect of the lynx effect.


Below is a Tunklab Gear planner link that has been put together from the gear shown in the build video. This gear in the link is all tier 5, unlike the gear in the video which is much lower so dont be bothered or worried, your build will do just fine with tier 1’s and 2’s!

Why no other blessings for Minions?

The Black Sun -> Grand Depths of Infinity [+(90% to 200%) increased Minion Damage]
Reign of Dragons -> Virtue of Command [+(150% to 250%) increased Minion Health]
(there are enough resistances…)

New Tunklab:

Never really included blessings in my build. Perhaps its a section I should

Will this build work with Thorn totems instead of Ice Thorns?
