Items for this build: most are pretty self explanatory. Set is all about bone spear and we are using the weapon that increases its damage. We are using simulacrum to double our damage and the amulet doubles the length of this ability. The cost of life for the amulet to work is almost completely negated by the golem and the gloves in the cube combo. This is also where we are getting all of our bone spear buff stacks from as well. Higher GRs you cannot rely on corpses from kills because you will simply run out. You cannot simply 1 or 2 shot things higher up so it needs to come from this set up. Bone spear is a essence spender so every use procs obsician ring of the zodiac. this will lower the cooldown on simulacrum or golem.

**NOTE: Bone spear can travel 2 full screen lengths !!! This is why this build can be so powerful. you will literally kill entire packs before they even see you. You are a sniper holding a infinite number of nukes. Just keep firing! You'll hit something :P

Build Guide

** you can choose whichever spear rune you wish. If you are with a zmonk and you are standing with them I suggest the "shatter" rune for the aoe. If you have a lot of cdr and are close to keeping simulacrum up all the time try "crystallization" for the increased attack speed. Poison is default though.

- keep your distance. you can take a hit but not several. When deemed necessary or when CoE is about to be on the same element as your bone spear use your golem to freeze your targets in order to get full damage out of your krysbins ring. Use the num lock trick for devour that way life and essence are constantly filling.

- So far I have gone with blood rush with the "molting" rune for 1 purpose. If and when you die from the RG you will be back to zero stacks. Your attacks can out pace the 1 corpse per second from the golem/gloves combo. You don't want to constantly be waiting on stacks or throwing spears with no buff.

- If your golem dies its not the end of the world. you should have plenty of spear stacks. just play it a little more safe for the few seconds it takes for him to get back up.

- We are using the overwhelming essence passive over serration because we are using Reilena's shadowhook weapon and will get more out of this because it is not distance based. And we are not using scythe of the cycle because we are not using bone armor. Bone armor is another CD that will take time away from obsidian ring of the zodiac getting golem and simulacrum back up. As well as the spell radius of bone armor makes you get too close for comfort.
