Equipment

Purpose, team integration

Bone fiends attack ranged with a 66,6% attack speed boost compared to other minions, resulting in great pressure and occasional spikes. Their damage can be further increased by team support, most notably:

  • Cracked armor for up to +41% damage.
  • Ebon Battle Standard of Honor for +15 damage on every attack.
  • Mark of Pain and Barbs triggered by the minion attacks. Mark of pain may cause scattering.
  • "Go for the Eyes!" to boost the next attack's damage by 41%. Note that critical hits don't automatically pick the highest damage of the bone fiend's base damage range of 17-35, other than critical hits of weapons.

To ensure the survival of the bone fiends, further measures can be taken, most notably:

  • Blood Bond, Life and Recuperation for additional healing. If the team is based on multiple bone fiend minion masters, consider bringing a curses support with Avatar of Dwayna.
  • Shelter, Union and Displacement for additional defense.

Counters

  • Lack of exploitable corpses.
  • Too many minions in the team increasing the health sacrifice of blood of the master to critical levels.
  • Holy damage killing the bone fiends, especially Ray of Judgment.
  • Consume Soul, Spiritual Pain, Holy Spear and Banishing Strike.
