What's up everyone. First off, I'm still only lvl 24 with my char so this is mainly theory crafting for fun. I was always a fan of Summoner builds as Druid/Necro in D2, so I wanted to see if I could brew something up for D3.
This is my concept so far:
I was wondering if some players who are up to lvl 50+ could give some feedback on some of the skills. Would this kind of summoner build be viable? If not, through nm... hell?
It's probably obvious, but basic idea's to maximize summon power:
Zomgie Dogs 'burning' + Sacrifice 'next of kin' + Zombie Handler => Recycle/chain xplode as many dogs as possible. I figured flaming dogs 'cause... well, they're gonna die anyway, might as well deal some more damage
Blow Dart 'Splinters' (fastest attack speed?) + Fetish Sycophant => constantly spitting out lil' hornets.
Fetish Army 'Ambush' + Voodoo 'Boogie Man' =>Maximize damage with fetishes, recycle more dogs to explode.
Gargantuan: Tank. Consistency of build, otherwise I'm guessing I'd get steamrolled at times.
I think what might be looking into is:
1) Mass Confusion vs. Vodoo for recycling zombie dog
2) Jungle Fortitude/Fetish Sycophants vs. Zombie Rites
The first one I'm not sure. Second one, I want to know what ppl think about Zombie Rites, its a significant drop in cooldown but is it worth it... worth it over fetish sycophants ability?
