I have a build idea that forces me to go conjurer for it to work. A pet build. Problem is… even maxed out, is the hellhound and briarthorn enough to “hold the front”?
With my chaos summoner cabalist I have fiend, skeletons, 4-6 devourers, hellhound. And my army wrecks everything so far (lvl75 just started in ultimate, SSF HC).
I want another character to play to avoid burnout. Another, different summoner. It also helps to have a backup. However the build relies on being a conjurer and these masteries together is having a REAL minion starvation. I mean when I pull a group with my cabalist, my army is a wall protecting me.
I’ve read that conjurer is still the strongest summoner class (?) but I’m so confused. If a giant pack of mobs with 2 bosses comes running down a hill, can the hellhound and briarthorn really “hold the line” so to speak?
It feels weird playing a summoner with only 2 big summons and I was wondering if someone can give some input on this. Even with 2 taunt minions, I can’t see them clear very fast. They have only 2 AoEs on CD.
