If you disagree with this rating, please discuss it on the build's talk page.

This build has been designed for the following use:

This build is simply to have a pure Spirit Wrangler Ritualist: to support the team with focused armor-ignoring damage. It takes advantage of the extremely powerful Kurzick/Luxon skill, Summon Spirits, to move around your spirits. Combined with spirit attacks triggering Painful Bond, this will inflict significant damage.

Attributes and Skills Edit

The Kurzick Template Code: OACjAuiKpSVTXTlT+gfTnNRb0gA <pvxbig> [build prof=Rt/? cha=10+1+3 com=11+3 spa=10+1][Painful Bond][Signet of Spirits][Bloodsong][Vampirism][Pain][Anguish][Armor of Unfeeling][Summon Spirits (Kurzick)][/build] </pvxbig>


Equipment Edit

  • Insignias on armor: You are free to choose between Radiant (Energy) Insignia, Survivor (Health) Insignia, or Shaman (Armor) Insignia.
  • Staff that reduces spell recharge time or increases maximum energy like Staff of the Forgotten.

Usage Edit

  • Summon your cheap/long lasting spirits before entering battle. For spirits with a shorter lifespan such as Anguish, wait until enemies are nearby before you cast. Once foes are within attack-range, call targets followed by casting Summon Spirits. Recast any spirits if necessary. Do -NOT- draw aggro upon them.
  • Cast Painful Bond on groups of foes and Bosses as it recharges. Spirits will prioritize uncalled targets with the lowest health; use this behavior to your advantage to cast Painful Bond. Use Siphon Spirits for energy management on summoned spirits; combine with Signet of Spirits for a high energy boost.
  • Use Summon Spirits to evacuate and heal any spirits that are under attack. If you are under melee attack, you can Summon Spirits or Signet of Spirits and back away. This will creates a Wall of Spirits to block the attacking foe; however, spirits will die quickly so use this tactic sparingly. Destruction and Agony are effective spirits for this tactic.

Counters Edit

  • AoE on your spirits will cause huge damage on them. Run out of AoE area and cast Summon Spirits to rescue them.
  • Anti-summoned creature skills that can spike-kill spirits. (i.e. Banish, Consume Soul, Spiritual Pain, etc.)

Variants Edit

<pvxbig>

  • Signet of Ghostly Might [[Signet of Ghostly Might] → Take if another Spirit Spammer ritualist is bringing Signet Of Spirits. see Dual Spirit Spam
  • Additional spirits can be used in place of the ones included (such as Anguish):
  • Wanderlust [[Wanderlust] → For anti-boss knockdown.
    • Earthbind [[Earthbind] → Synergy with Wanderlust.
  • Gaze of Fury [[Gaze of Fury] → For anti-spirit support.
  • Disenchantment [[Disenchantment] → For anti-enchantment support.
  • Dissonance [[Dissonance] → For anti-caster interrupts.
  • Shadowsong [[Shadowsong] → For anti-melee shutdown.
