Ghouls & Ghosts - Pet Death Knight


No, you haven’t gone crazy. It is a proper, pet Death Knight. And it works :smiley:
It is also a Lazy build that is Hardcore Viable and can farm Crucible and complete SR 76.

Beginner/Budget guide

One more, for fwuffy!

Enough Reserbirbs for now.

Fine… one more. This is the last one, I swear.

Ravager also falls, but took almost twice the time of my Pet Apostate. Kind of understandable, given the lack of RR.

Actually, I’m trying to make a tanky physical skeletons general DK right now, with War Cry and Assassins Blade. It’s probably crazy and absolutely non-viable, but I really like the idea.

Best of Lucks. Let me know if it works out :slight_smile:

I personally am not a good pilot, so even on a dedicated pet build I find myself losing Skeletons too much. So the idea here was to focus mostly on invulnerable pets like Reap Spirits and the Spiders. Blightfiends with transmuter have low enough CD so it doesn’t matter that much when they die. Then I went full on Pet damage and hoped it would work out ;p.

pet DK … wat? :eek:

Yes, pet DK :cool:

Ok, so Spiritseeker Cord turned out to be better in this case over Shadowfiend. Updating the build.

So, do you guys know what it feels like to be killed by a nonsensical build named after an NES era game?

Callagadra Knows.

Welp, I now think that out of Shaman, Occultist & Necromancer, Shaman is the weakest pet class atm. (Your experiences may vary)

I did not expect the build to perform this well considering I thought it up as a joke

I kinda agree with that. Shaman doesn’t really support pets that nicely, imo. The only thing he has is exclusive skill and Mogdrogen’s pact buff or whatever was the name. Wind Devil kind of sucks for pets since it’s slow as fuck and usually doesn’t do anything and Swarm is just okay.

Everything updated to the current patch :yum:

very nice build i am doing this now!

what do u think of the call of the grave MIs that add 15% healing and physical resistance (amulet + bargol mace)

They take up slots which are used by better items, so I would be against doing that :frowning:

I have done a skelly version of this and it is just insane, huge damage output and pretty strong all though Ultimate. Thanks for posting @Maya

@maya Here is the version I am working towards:

The devotions are done and I have "only’ a couple of levels to go to get the purple stuff fitted, which I will need to hunt down! So current gear is a mix of green, blue and purple stuff. I have just crafted the Dirge which is simply beastly … 14 skellies, Dirge, spiders and ol’ blighty and the thing is a beast. Og’napesh is there as well with his shield boost which is good but I will move to diviner book when I find it. Huge hitpoints along with good resists and plenty of RR. I will post some results when completed. Thanks for your help and direction :slight_smile:

Menhir’s will does not work with caster off-hand. Light of empyrion proc DR does not stack with war cry.


Thanks @Ulvar1 … I am not very good with devotions, what would work better ??? What would you suggest to improve ?

Edit: I have altered the devotion procs now and changed Obelisk to the first two slots in wolverine, added two marrow band as I actually have those … make sense? Please let me know if this improves the build!
