Ishtar - Pet Ritualist


Do you like Ghosts?
Do you want Pets that cannot die?
Do you want to kill every single thing Ingame?

If the answer is “Yes”, then you are in the right place :stuck_out_tongue:

While Vitality Reap Spirits is not a new concept, I always had my reservations since Diviner’s Vision Set converted half the Spirit’s damage into Aether. But since the set no longer has Aether Conversion, allow me to present you my spoopy ghobsts.

Note: Requires both Ashes_of_Malmouth & Forgotten_Gods.

How could you have reserbirbs on a Ritualist? :thinking:

So is Reap Spirit good source of damage?

Birbs are everywhere, always watching, waiting…

Reap Spirits do like 200K dmg against Nemesis bosses in SR 90 with all procs, buffs & debuffs up. AoE dmg is kind of lacking, but not bad. And since we are going to be mostly fighting dangerous stuff 1v1, that doesn’t matter.

The most surprising thing is that Reap Spirits can tank rather well now, while being invincible :rofl:

You also can take Dying God for even more dmg, but I don’t like how squishy it makes you. So, doesn’t fit the lazy playstyle :stuck_out_tongue:

I suspect DG is even more dangerous on pet builds, where you don’t have life steal to offset the health drain from the proc.

In non pets Reap Spirit is considered the worst single target oriented skill but with %pet damage makes sense to be way better.

Birbs are on the reserves as tactical backup :smile:

You can get enough regen to offset the life drain and still have enough positive health regen, but it is still kind of problematic if you get DoTs on you. This was the original build with DG:

The Spell component is still bad, but the pets are the one doing the damage here with their auto attacks and skills :smile:

Crate of Entertainment killed. Finally I have a Pet Ritualist capable of doing that :stuck_out_tongue:

Kill time is same as that of Will O Wisp - Pet Cabalist


And… it is official. The build is more powerful than Will O Wisp and is more similar to my The Fluffy Squishy - Pet Conjurer

Callagadra killed at 9-10 mins and Ishtar is going in my Top 3 list.

Is Crypstalker a worse option comparing to Mythical Spiritcrusher?

Personally, I would say so. Since there is no way I am standing within 5m of bosses on a pet build. The extra risk is not worth it.

I Don’t know if Crypstalker aura is compulsory or not, if it is possible not to use her, than we have -10% Vit res and -27 attack/cast speed vs +5% Crit Damage and +6% OA.

No sense to max Primal Spirit? This is Spirits’ build, after all :slight_smile:

I would take the -%Res and -atk/cast speed + -%HP regen over Crit and OA. It is not like we are lacking for those :stuck_out_tongue:

Primal Spirit would be useless since it would neither have good uptime nor have the defenses to not get shredded like wet tissue.

I see, thanks for reply! Very nice build and only one type of pet to do the job, the definition of lazy :wink: Do you really need Behemoth for 2nd heal?

Behe is not needed, but I like the extra tankiness. Lets me take additional risks and be even lazier. It did help out against Crate of Entertainment though.

Nice work. 0 green.
