[1.1.9.6] Minimum Wage Budget Fire Pet Conjurer - 75-76 Farmer, easy main game and more

I’ve posted a deep SR pet conjurer, it’s a stasher’s paradise build, or one that someone could farm for a very, very long time to build similar. I’ve posted a much more budget friendly build that uses nothing but realistic green, blue, and purple drops. It isn’t quite as powerful, but farming for it is quite easily realistic for someone that doesn’t mind a bit of the grind. But, I thought I’d post this recipe to give an idea of what can be very easily built as soon as you hit level 94, have a few BP’s and some faction.

In the video below, there are many greens, but they are all target farmable, very commonly dropped, or faction equipment. None of them have any affixes whatsoever, save for the helm that is an “of the wild” suffix as I needed just a bit more oomph and DA for SR75. But, that is a completely 100% realistic and an easy drop, they all are. Any version of this you farm for and build in game, any affixes AT ALL, will make the toon better than what you see in the video below finishing SR75, with some time left even. A lot of this gear you’ll be able to farm and build from in Normal and Elite difficulties.

No affixes

The build:

I’m using fire damage as that’s an easy drop / conversion on the 1H slot. Beyond that, simple rr in devotions and via curse / wind devils. Pets have good resists as you can see int he screenshot, they generally do not die. As I have it in the build above, my toon is running around to stay alive a bit, but the pets just keep putting in work.

SR75

Devos:
I’d suggest this path for the devos if you are building this: Shep Crook → Toad → Soleal Witch Blade → Raven → Rhowan’s Crown → Jackal → Bysmiel Bonds → Lion → Typhos → Wolverine → Mog the Wolf → Empty Throne

This build (without affixes) isn’t a going to set speed records or go beat up SR100, this is a “starter” budget farmer that will do the job with relatively cheap and inexpensive gear to get. Cheap doesn’t have to be bad. :wink:

This looks cool. I am following this build now, and so far, at lvl 40, it is smooth sailing. Thank you!

Would you consider adding some leveling snapshots in the future?

Normally (as with this toon) I take a 100 character I already have and repurpose it… but, you are right, this is a beginner what you can do with mostly very easy to get gear build, so a leveling guide would be good… Trying to get a buddy to help wit that who likes building from level 1. But, do plan to have something to add eventually here in time, I do think it’d be helpful for a build / topic like this one… will get something added.

Level 20 update:
Building this guy form ground up. I didn’t totally go SSF as I didn’t blow away my blue prints, but… otherwise SSF for this guy. Going to add updates every 10 levels. At level 10 had whatever and just keep putting points into the briarthorn. Now I’m up t level 20, wanted to give Grimtools links along the way as a leveling guide. Here is the build as of now with drops I’ve gotten thus far:

Shrines done: Burial Hill (near Devil’s Crossing), Foggy Bank Cavern, Devil’s Aquifer, Flooded Passage, Slith Cavern, Burial Cave (near Burwitch).

Gear: Starting to collect any pet bonuses I can at this stage.

Ease of leveling to this point: 9/10 A little slow against bosses, only taking on regular totems (not ancient). Briarthorn does most of the work, need to use a health potion occasionally, so far easy going in veteran difficulty.

Level 30 update

Toon looks like this, again, just picking up any green / blue pet item or item that helps with me defense at this point. If you can’t make the same relic, make whatever you can that gives you defensive buffs, but obviously at this stage Hysteria is best you can do. I’m adding points to the main mastery bars and here and there in the storm spirit aura. I’m working my way to the hound’s hellfire aura. And of course working my way towardds the briar’s emboldening aura. Once I get those I’ll drop points in all of them until max’d as well as points in Curse and Raging Tempest for -rr.

At this point in the game I’m on my way to Homestead, can finish SR1 w/o timer, have cleaned all shrines (save for Steps of Torment) up to Smuggler’s Pass. This includes the previosly mentioned and Spined Cove, Rocky Coast, Old Arkovia and Arkovian Undercity third level shrine, Burwitch Village

Devos looks like this with Shep’s Crook at lvl 7, will get Rhowan’s Crown next to start leveling that:
Order Shep Crook → Toad → Raven

Just now starting to build some faction and possibly (a lot an drop between now and 35 / friendly w/Rovers) use some Rover’s gear at level 35:

Hope this helps, see you with the next update at level 40.

Level 40 update. Toon feels very strong as is for normal difficulty yet (elite should be unlocked soon, but not going there just yet). Having a good time farming. :slight_smile:

What I’m doing? At this stage I’m through Darkvale Gate and on my way to Fort Ikon.

Toon as is through grinding and farming to level 40:

Shrines collected:
The previously posted and; Rotted Croplands, Den of the Lost, Mountain Deeps, Tyrant’s Hold, Steps of Torment, Blood Grove, Asterkarn Valley

Next devos: Finish Jackal, then Bysmiel Cuff and Soleal Witchblade to start leveling those

Faction this far

Ease of play: 8/10 Can beat celestial totem with some kiting, ancient totems with some running around, desecrated shrines and most hordes are no match for the toon at this stage. Resists still are a work in progress at this stage and it does at times take active piloting, though.

Up next, get to Fort Ikon, clear Necropolis and then head to Conclave of the Three to start working my way towards a Korvaak dagger. See you with the next update at level 50.

Level 50 Update
The build is starting to take form now, have gotten lots more devotion shrines and finished Forgotten Gods content, earning a Korvaak dagger in the process. Pets mainly do fire heavy elemental damage now, and the toon har great rr already for elemental / fire.

Just got to the Desolate Wastes, on my way to find and rescue Ulgrim. Finished Forgotton Gods main quest to start faction. Working on AoM now. Leveling / farming ease: 9/10 Very strong for normal difficulty at this stage. Plenty of DPS for eliete, but still need to work on resists before braving far into elite difficulty. I’ve only gone there so far to get the easy shrine in Burial Hill and finish the starting quests to get the XP.

The toon looks like this at level 50:

Working on finishing Wolverine so I can start on Mog the Wolf. Shrines completed include the above mentioned and the following in normal difficulty: Ruins of Abyd, Cairan Docks, Temple of Osyr, Sunward Spire, Tomb of Eldritch Sun,
East Marsh, Ancient Grove, Tomb of Ugdall

Elite difficulty: Burial Hill

Faction at this point

So, how does it play? Here is a video of the toon as in in the link in this post vs. Loghorrean
