- Serpent's Quickness for faster Armor of Unfeeling recharge.
- Signet of Creation for extra energy if spirits live long enough.
- Signet of Binding for anti-spirit support.
- Edge of Extinction for bombing support.
- Quickening Zephyr for spamming support.
- Winter for anti-elements support.
- Tryptophan Signet for snare and extra protection.
- Great Dwarf Weapon for a damage buff that causes knockdowns.

- Players may choose to micro certain spirits (such as Displacement) depending on the area.
- A Major Spawning Power rune can be used instead of Superior. Similarly, a Minor Communing rune can substitute for Superior.
