Maw of Mischief

Main item of the build – try to farm it up as soon as you finish campaign.

Body Armour


Great body armor to boost level of spectres and their life.

Use 2-sockets for this build.


Rare Gloves

Look for rare gloves with high life, 2 high resistances and chance to suppress spell damage.


Rare Boots

Look for rare boots with 30% movement speed, high life, resistances and chance to suppress spell damage.

Left Ring

Berek's Respite

Berek’s Respite helps with clear immensely – you should also aim to get it ASAP, however, it can be a bit pricy early on.

Right Ring

Replica Emberwake

Another important item that synergizes with the build.

Try to get one with high “ignites deal damage faster” mod.


Rare Amulet

Look for rare amulet with high life, damage over time multiplier and “Summon Spectral Wolf on Kill” mod. The wolf mod is craftable through crafting bench, and is a very important mod to have on the amulet.


Rare Stygian Vise

Look for rare stygian vise with high life, resistances and strength.

1Hand Weapon

The Scourge

One of the best weapons for the build which you can buy for next to nothing.

It’s outclassed only by very high-end crafted sceptres.

Get it as soon as you can. When you do, can go ahead and recraft amulet’s Spectral Wolf mod to something else.


Bitterbind Point

Good shield for the build – gives us arcane surge, increased crits to sustain elemental overload and huge boost to spectre life.


Militant Faith

This particular build version uses just 1 jewel – Militant Faith.

Get Avarius version with increased channeling spell damage.


Flask Setup

Build uses following flasks:

1. Taste of Hate (Endgame)
2. Life Flask with poison removal
3. Silver Flask with bleed removal
4. Granite flask with increased armor
5. Quicksilver flask
