Kanai's Cube

  • Reilena's Shadowhook
  • Tasker and Theo
  • Krysbin's Sentence

- Go for maximum screen dps. More screen dps means more mage dmg.
- Attackspeed increases mage dmg by adding screen dps. Attackspeed dont increas their attacking rate, only Tasker and Theo will let them attack faster.
- Always get +15% skeleton mage dmg on boots. On head 1000vita also is a good choice (vita benifits from the permanent life%buff from devour: satiated)
- Always get +max essence on weapon (dmg bonus Reilenas Shadowhook).
- Templar/Follower: inspire for more essence generation, ocolus ring, items with cc/slow (thunderfury/eun-yan-do/....+wyrdward, freeze of deflection, ...
- Secondary: +pickup range and cc effects (freeze, slow, etc.)
- Pets do proc area dmg. For groupplay area dmg is very good. Solo cdr and raw dmg are better.
- Haunted Visions + CoE instead of endless walk is a good choice too, see build guide for more infos.

- Prefer vita over +life% because the 50% life bonus from devour: satiated is additive with other life%.

- Use Zei's gem instead of esoteric for pushing high solo grifts.

Build Guide

About the build:

  • Smooth and easy to play real summoner build.
  • incredible strong for high level group/solo speedgrifts and also very good for solo pushing
  • permanent 10 powerful singularity mages
  • Massive essence generation (bone spikes-> reilenas shadowhook + globes-> reapers + corpes->devour) results in extremly strong singularity mages.
  • No bonearmor and curses because its a pain to cast them with mage on autocast and you dont need them.
  • Pets will block all incoming dmg, if you dont skip monster.
