Components / Augments

Zod runes are ideal if they allow you to get extra pets from + to skills, otherwise Cham + 3 Jah.

Rest are used for defensive stats as there are not many components with minion stats.

Augements with pet stats (preferably AR/crit dmg/speed) and resists.


Look at the screenshots!

Its my skill setup at lvl 100 so some points need to be taken out at lower levels (you want to keep 1 point in everything at the very least though), best places to take points off of are the %dmg to minions passives since they give less damage than the actual summon skills do (keep them at max since most of them scale the amount of minions you can have).

Extra Information

Stats: Enough stats for gear rest into strength.

Mercenary: Act 2 Prayer or Act 4 Support/Offense.

About mythical yugol's ichor, blightshard amulet and facets:

These items are what i used to scale the minion damage by converting everything my minions do to acid and thus making lower resist curse more potent. Untill you find these items lower resist curse isnt as good so you can spend the points elsewhere.
