Build uniques / Example rare gear


Tip: Click on the item to view it on PoE Wiki or to view similar rare items in poe.trade

Helmet

Rare Bone helmet

Look for rare Bone Helmet with at least 80 life and some resistances.


Body Armour

The Covenant

Great offensive option that completely negates the need for mana regeneration, since we use Blood magic to cast SRS.


Gloves

Grip of The Council

These are really good gloves for most summoner builds, although they are not that cheap.

Alternative would be rare gloves with high life and resistances.


Boots

Rare Boots

Look for generic boots with high life, 30% increased movement speed and some resistances.


Left Ring

Rare Coral Ring

Look for rare Coral rings with life and elemental resistances.

You could also use Essence of Fear to craft rings, giving your minions extra movement speed, but it will be more expensive.


Right Ring

Rare Coral Ring

Same as previously mentioned ring.


Amulet

Rare Shaper Amulet

Look for rare Shaper amulet with life and %reduced mana reserved. Resistances and attributes are great stats to have as bonuses.


Belt

Stygian Vise

Look for generic rare Stygian Vise with at least 80 life and resistances.


1Hand Weapon

Crafted Sceptre

You should look for rare sceptre with “%increased minion damage” mod as a primary one, and craft “Trigger a Socketed Spell when you Use a Skill”. That way your Offering skill will require no maintenance.

Later you can multimod it to also craft minion attack and cast speed.


Offhand

Victario's Charity

Great shield to boost damage of our minions even further with Frenzy and Power charges.


Jewel

Jewel Setup

Use rare Abyss jewels and look for following stats:

1.) Minions deal #-# additional Physical Damage
2.) x% Increased Minion Damage if you’ve used a Minion Skill recently
3.) +x to maximum life
4.) Resistances / Attributes / Other minion damage stats

This build also uses unique jewel Careful Planning. Put it in socket which is located between Quick Recovery and Aligned Spirits nodes in the skill tree.


Flask

Flask Setup

1.) Divine Life flask with instant recovery and bleed removal
2.) Basalt Flask with freeze removal
3.) Quicksilver Flask of adrenaline
4.) Blood of The Karui
5.) Silver Flask
