[1.1.9.0] Aether Pet/Player hybrid Spellbinder -> CR 5:08/ SR100/ Ravager + Crate

Hello, it’s my first build after new patch so I want to present something unusual, working pet/player hybrid. It’s Diviner Spellbinder with boosted pets stats + converted Oblivion - because it’s great skill both damage and survivality which do not require any skill points. Pets do a lot of damage, they can clean everything with just player casting buffs what I show on one of the videos. Ofcourse do not expect full-damage potential from them like from pure pet build, it’s not possible.

GT is still 1.1.8.1 but only some little pets stats are changed in 1.1.9, not a big deal.

One of the weakness is problem with resistances, hunt for pierce especially on belt/pants. For more tankyness Dryad can be taken instead of Shepard, binded to BH.

Choices to explain:
Weapon - Vit->Aether conversion, skill points, everything we need to.

Rings - we need chaos->aether conversion, otherwise double proc skill is very helpful.

Amulet - %all damage, +1 necromancer and bonus to pets. Some Necro conduit like aether BH or whatever for defensive stats is good either.

Medal - just for DA (needed after SR changes) and pet stats. Another very good choice is Mythical Mark of Anathema - more player oriented but I had same results with timer, only DA is much worse.

Belt + Pants - Belt for vitality->aether conversion, pants for Soul Harvest (flat damage and pet increases) and resistances. Hunt for resistances mostly, belt must cover conversion from weapon, 100% is needed.

Video of cleaning 65 shard once with pets only + casting buffs to show how we do without Oblivion:

Performance
CR 5:08 - can be faster probably but I am too lazy to do more runs

SR 100 - can go higher because out of Mot I am getting one shotted even by trash monsters so does not matter at higher deeps. But I am too lazy for the second time.

Ravager 1:53

Nice. That would be the 3rd build with Aether Oblivion on the forum I think and with each one Cruci is faster
(of course yours is far more creative not only faster).

I had one faster aether oblivion than this one (4:4x if I remember), 4 parts krieg + Outcast secret. Altough I consider this one more interesting so posted it.

Plasmo also did aether Oblivion with Clairvoyant doing sub 5 mins, which is what I initially wanted to do aswell, but I decided to play a cooldown based caster instead.

I thought only thing was added was chance to proc, i.e. each ring chance to proc is check in order. But they share cooldown

Some crazy build but it’s working great!

Also nice finishing touch for @x1x1x1x2 thread to show the king of all classes - Spellbinder. Now if Binder don’t win, have to go back and erase last sentence. :sweat_smile:

I mean like 90ish percent of people put binder on their top 5 and the only reason it’s not number one on most lists is because it’s not their favorite class :rofl:

I did not put binder higher on my list because I think the name “spellbinder” does not sound cool :slight_smile:

That’s what I meant, they proc more often just from Omen ticks or something.

@Nery @x1x1x1x2 I made conclusion you can put even some pretty random gear on binders and they are going to work :smile:

That’s sounds pretty cool and I won’t be surprised if that works :rofl: Banana made some fast af Omen Reaper so why wouldnt it work on binder? Arcanist tree got all necessary tools.
