This Build can get the fourth Spectre until we have +1 to minion skill wand, which is also going to be more expensive this league, level 21 Raise Spectre and the +3 from the shield. So until then, a golem will allow you to get the onslaught buff, or you can always empower instead of a meat shield.

Poe 3.10 has added over 350 new monster types to the pool of possible monsters which can be used for Spectres. These are monsters that not used as Spectres for technical reasons, such as unusual spawning behavior or skills that only function in a specific context. Among them are monsters from Abyss, Delve, Betrayal, Synthesis, Legion, and Conquerors of the Atlas content. Some of these monsters utilize skills that are relatively new and different to skills that are used by existing Spectres, so they should allow for some new options for Spectre builds.
Poe Raise Spectre can gain the benefits of many different types of support gems, but not all of them may be beneficial depending on the kind of Spectres raised. Minion-specific support gems will work on eve Spectre. For example, Greater Multiple Projectiles Support will affect Spectres with projectile abilities, while Increased Area of Effect Support will affect Spectres with area abilities. Spectres receive the support of linked gems that connected to the Raise Spectre gem, not the ones related to the Raise Spectre gem at the time the spell was cast. This means that a player using Chaos Inoculation may first raise a Spectre without Blood Magic Support linked (expending mana to do so), and then connect the Blood Magic Support gem afterward to add its properties to the Spectres.
This Build can get the fourth Spectre until we have +1 to minion skill wand, which is also going to be more expensive this league, level 21 Raise Spectre and the +3 from the shield. So until then, a golem will allow you to get the onslaught buff, or you can always empower instead of a meat shield. Mana Guardian has always been one of the most influential defensive classes in the game. By reserving our mana, we get much higher energy shield numbers than Occultist. Thanks to the Memory Vault helmet, we have massive armor for 80% physical damage reduction, and it also allows us to pop huge molten shell & Vaal molten shell's which make us nearly invulnerable outside of their short cooldowns. We also have a very high block chance. All of this makes us much tankier than say, an Occultist with a similar amount of energy shield. Finally, by adding four Spectres to this Build, we are getting 25% MORE damage thanks to feeding frenzy buff for our crawler, onslaught bonus from ascendancy, and they also tank for us with meat shield! Please see the Spectres section.
+ Moderate upfront cost with the first set of unique items scales exceptionally well with end game gear if you want to spend more Poe currencies.
+ As tanky as any deep delve build, if not tankier, an Occultist with similar energy shield feels like glass cannon by comparison:
+ Immunity to chaos damage thanks to CI
+ Immune to ignite, shock, chill and frozen effects
+ Double curse if you want to do temporal chains + enfeeble
+ Enemies around you are blinded thanks to sand stance
- As we get closer to the 2000 delve level, defense no longer matters.
- Unblockable attacks, especially massive ground damage, can still kill you.
- You may get bored with the game if you literally can not die, and it is a mindless playing style without aiming and the low number of active skills to press and maintain.
- You are playing an old bald man, and perhaps this is why the guardian has never been super popular compared to more refreshing classes.
- This is not an SSF build or league starter like Necromancer Skeletons/Holy Relic. The upfront investment and specific gear pieces are needed.
Soul of Brine King, protection against stunlocks OR Soul of Lunaris, protection against chain damage
Soul of Tukohama if you enjoy stationary face tanking as We do.
