is there a good way to fix this build, preferably with faction stuff? I have maxed out the Outcast and the Malmouth factions.
I like the playstyle of being a tanky summoner and casting spells to tip the fight in my pets favor, but it’s not working at all in Ultimate. nearly all purples can wipe out all my pets with AoE and I have to rift out waiting for cooldowns every two minutes.
Single mastery builds, are/can be, very powerful at lower levels due to being able to concentrate all your points in one place, but, GD is balanced as a dual mastery, thus you are missing out on the 2nd mastery bar (main way of gaining health / energy) and the support of other skills ands pet buffs / healing.
You have few items and devotions that give bonuses to your pets. Decide what you want to be: a petmancer - in which case go for Occultist or Shaman for more pets - or a caster. It’s not easy to do both in this game, certainly not with just one mastery.
yes I kept pushing off choosing a second mastery because I didn’t want to ruin it. I’ll give occultist a try. probably get rid of bone harvest because it was only good for the middle game and focus on pets and debuffs.
