Analysis

Offense

  • The key to this build's offense is that melee supports can both increase procs of Summon Raging SpiritSummon Raging SpiritSpell, Minion, Duration, Fire

    as well as the effectiveness of the individual Spirits.
  • Since the game is balanced around 75% resists and Raging Spirits don't resist anything except Fire, they tend to die a lot against non-Fire damage. In this case, Minion Instability helps ensure that we get at least a little value out of them.

  • This is definitely a defense-focused build. The offense is solid but not exceptional, and does take a while to spool up. If we want a more offense-focused build of this type, I would suggest using dual Ungil's GaucheUngil's Gauche
