[edit] Equipment

  • Survivor or Shaman's Insignias on your armor.
  • A high HP staff or weapon set such as a Deldrimor Staff.

[edit] Usage

  • Summon all your spirits except Anguish prior to battle. They last much longer than their recharge.
  • You can either use the spirits for a spirit wall to take aggro from your group or pull enemies into spirit range.
  • If you use your spirits as a wall, they will take the brunt of the damage and act as a buffer similar to a minion wall. Spread your spirits out in a line or an arc and pull groups into the spirits. Enemies prioritize attacking spirits because of their low health.
  • Use Summon Spirits to move spirits out of AoE attacks such as Savannah Heat and provide a small heal to keep them alive. This also allows you to keep your spirits mobile and carry them between battles.
  • Maintain Painful Bond on enemies to increase damage output. Spirits prioritize attacks on uncalled targets with the lowest health.
  • Use Spirit Siphon to manage energy.

[edit] Counters

  • AoE damage on your spirits due to balling.
  • Anti-summoned creature skills that can kill your spirits quickly. (Banish, Consume Soul, Spiritual Pain, etc.)

[edit] Variants

[edit] Notes

  • Spirits can attack at longbow range.
  • This build has an apparent 160 DPS assuming Painful Bond is used and all spirits attack foes hexed with Painful Bond.
  • Spirits have a tendency to attack the same first enemy that comes in range, use this to your advantage when pulling groups.
