And here we go, a DaShiv Pet build. Looks glorious, as always!

Seriously?

Great work

You are the Chosen One for the pet builds.Thanks a lot for explaining all mechanics of pets and showing how we can optimize our build without shinny set items.

I didnt find Primal Instinct yet But I definitely run for this build.I hope I can find Dracarris sword and go for Incarnate build also

Do we use the Blight Fiend as a walking grenade?

Wow, I have been waiting for a niche summoner build. Thanks, DaShiv.

I will delete my summoner as soon as I get home.

I've tried once your Dracarris build and it was the most fun build i've ever played so far.

Now it's time to try this one! Great work!

After seeing both videos that showcase and incredible performance I went thru grimtools only to see some kind of disjointed pile of green items and a lot of non-pet constellation. WTF, how did u do it?

This allows our temporary pets to soak up tons of damage since they’re immediately replaced at full health upon resummoning, and blight fiends can especially draw tons of aggro with their high threat generation. Fast resummoning essentially turns temporary pets into unlimited damage sponges, which provides a much-needed counterweight to fragile skeletons and swarmlings.
Resummoning-based build IS awesome, but it holds one problem - enemies often turn their attention to you when temporary pet dies. While my petxplosionist actually relies on expendable pets and their aoe damage by design, unpredictable enemy behaviour is quite annoying.

Do the skeletons/swarmlings nullify an aggro problem for you?
