Arcanist definitely works better than demo for this build concept, since demo doesn't have good affinity with aether or have a standalone spell as well-suited as Devastation for Raise the Dead.

As far as Warlocks vs. Pyromancers for pet builds in general, it would come down to the specific build concept. The next build I'll be posting will be a pet hybrid Pyromancer, so you can decide for yourself.

If you're asking about Storm Spirit: the raven casts Storm Spirit on the player, and the buff affects the player and all allies (such as pets) within an 8-meter radius at time of casting, lasting for 30 seconds. It does not affect new allies/pets entering the radius after casting (i.e. it's not a persistent aura).

A really cool build! Am I wrong or is this the best hybrid build to date? Why does it get so little attention?
Nice idea to stack the flat damage and cdr! I will try it out myself after beating Gollus ass again for 500 times lol!

Default Little confused

hello, great guide, the only thing i am uncertain about is as following :

When you were talking about 70 first points into physique, how did you mean it? total points spent or the increased physique you get when you click Physique?

If it's your 1st character, then it might be a problem, but for those who have other, high-lev or fully levelled characters, it's not a problem. Just craft it with the high-lev char and put it in the shared stash. If this is your first char, just pm me and I'll gladly craft it for you.

I've updated the original post as follows:

If you haven't had the chance to play with Dammitt's new build calculator yet, it has tons of features and the implementation is very slick. For example, the tool even shows all my devotion bindings. Give it a try!

For all Grim Dawn build guides (and build calculators) you'll ever see, attribute points refer to the points spent by clicking "+" next to the attribute, and not to the resulting value. You can see how many attribute points have been spent on each attribute by hovering over the attribute name on page 1 of your character sheet.

Continue to use Fireblast from Searing Ember until you can craft Flintcore Bolts. I've listed the earliest level for each new item to allow for most efficient gearing/leveling, but it's completely natural that newer players (or probably even most players) won't have every item ready yet at each exact level.

Use Grim Dawn Item Database to search, then click the "Settings" button on the top left corner and select "Show pet attributes and skills" to see their stats.
