I’ve played with a handful of people here and am always getting questions about this build in MP, so I thought I’d share it here. First, I’m sure this is not the best build here, but I think it more than gives the majority of Lost Souls set builds a run for their money. At the very least, here is another option, a different way to build a viable pet cabalist.
I built a pet pyromancer that wasn’t bad, took the knowledge from that and applied it to a cabalist (and a conjurer, but that’ll have to be a different thread). Damage is centered around the Hellhound and it’s aura, that is mostly chaos, the Myth Voidwhisper makes the vitality damage from the skeletons / spirits (arms) useful, the off hand makes the cold damage from the Chillmane (amulet) and spirits (arms) useful chaos damage. I use arms that have the lowest amount of vitality convert as possible as I’m trying to keep the majority of physical convertied to chaos (hence the void whisper, Fiendgaze, and Consecated Blade skill). I’ve tried numerous weapons, but always come back to a pet friendly Salazar blade. The pet is synergistic, and has great debuffs / elemental resist for the pet army and my toon. In addition there is a good amount of elemental damage that is not converted, namely fire and lightning, so the toon has elemental debuffs where they are easy to come by as well.
This toon can easily farm 75-76, though it is squishy enough that it’ll sometimes be an adventure. Damage output I’ve seen is as high as 2̶.̶9̶5̶ ̶m̶i̶l̶l̶i̶o̶n̶ (*edit closer to ~̶4̶ ̶m̶i̶l̶l̶i̶o̶n̶ ̶D̶P̶S̶ with links below, second edit - highest confirmed damage so far is 10.4 million DPS solo in SR95 as of 3/9/2022… also has hit ~3,000,000 DPS solo vs single target dummy) as is in the link below (scroll down, build has been polished in replies below). You can easily get away with a Necromancer or subjugator Bloodsworn Signet (much easier to find drop) and any pet friendly Salazar blade, though I like to go for OA. This toon does enough damage that I can run through SR100, even 105 and ̶e̶a̶s̶i̶l̶y̶ (errr, sometimes) have time left on the clock… for the first three chunks. This toon seems to peter out around SR95 as far as nemesis level bosses go, just too squishy. That being said, “normal” level SR and team play, this toon is pretty good, just put a tank in front and let it do damage.
Anyway, thought I’d share:
Ingame, no offensive temp proc’s active other than Blood of Dreeg:
(toon has been updated slightly and is better in link below, OG here)
