Default [1.0.6.1] Knights of Nurgle - Acid Fiend Cabalist


This is the first pet build I've put together... not sure if something similar has been done, but here it is. Plenty of green to splash around the screen, x3 acid fiends smacking stuff around, and a skeletal servant to soak a bit more damage for you. The build is fairly safe, and you could switch ring augments for more DA if you prefer (tbh it isn't needed except for certain circumstances in crucible like Maiden + x2 reaper.. even then with a little luck and the right piloting you can overcome without it.)

It isnt the fastest build, but it can clear 150-170 in about 13-15 minutes.
Damage can be increased a bit by dropping points from spectral binding/wrath and putting them into call of the grave.
More healing can be picked up by dropping points from spectral binding/wrath and investing in familiar / mend flesh

Video start - Rodalgar / Alexander
2:05 - Master of Flesh

150-160 Double reaper/ Valdaran : https://plays.tv/s/LnUNjBnXvhzI
I forgot to summon my familiar in this one lol

150-170 : https://plays.tv/s/LnURNt8Ul8PI
Spoiler I die on 170. I get meme'd by Valdaran into a stun followed by an Alex meteor... Would have cleared if not for that. Double valdaran/reaper/alex

Excuse my bad piloting
I'm used to playing melee builds

Be very lucky with a roll when it is crafted.

With this set up you can cover pierce resist at the cost of some damage for your pets. on the plus side it will make you, and your pets have more physical resist.
You will want either pierce resist or chaos resist roll on the amulet. Then you can switch to 10% pierce augments on some slots too. (depending on what your resist roll was)

You dont have stun resist either, but relying on having a well rolled green is the only way to really have it. Unless you want to but a leathery hide on your helm.

example - no greens chaos resist roll

Kinda the build I wanted to make when Blight fiend was still bugged. Had to park it and limit myself to feedback. Nice going

This scepter is also pretty nice to consider

It definitely would be worth testing! Or using in place of the mace, if you didnt have it.

While those are a dps increase, I dont think I would give up the hp/healing from everliving. It put you at over -100 regen, and removes any cushion you have for elemental resist. Also your pets would lose a sizable chunk of da... for campaign Viper would probably be superior, but crucible I definitely would stick with everliving. Or perhaps Deathgrips for extra summons, more pet damage.

That is why Necro summoners benefit even more from RE+Bat.

On my Ritualist all is well with Hungering void

Simple fix, drop toad /crossroad for bat... pets lose some OA/adcth... but gain extra sustain. https://www.grimtools.com/calc/q2m9wwo2

Yep. Toad really is nothing for expendable Kamikaze like anomaly Blight fiend

Maybe 2x Biars, primal spirit but fiends and skeletons don't get so much from toad
