This Build mainly revolves around taking advantage of the Spirit of Arachyr set and overwhelming enemies with Corpse Spiders. This set will also summon a Spider Queen, who can be directed with the Corpse Spiders Skill. She will enhance the spiders, slow enemies, and give you damage reduction.

Aside from Corpse Spiders, the core Skills of this Build are:

  • Locust Swarm – used to increase the damage of Corpse Spiders further.
  • Piranhas – pulls enemies into groups and increases their damage taken.
  • Soul Harvest – gives a burst of extra offense and defense.
  • Spirit Walk – gives you some mobility.
  • Big Bad Voodoo – can be used to give an extra boost to your damage, as well as some movement speed.
  • Horrify – can be used to enhance your survivability.



The primary armor will be the Spirit of Arachyr set. You will need five pieces of it for the full effect (if you Cube the Royal Ring of Grandeur). The Spider Queen’s Grasp, Mask of Jeram, Ring of Emptiness, Depth Diggers, and Brood of Araneae will all enhance your Corpse Spiders. Echoing Fury will give you a boost in damage, and Lakumba’s Ornament will give you a large defensive boost. The Endless Walk set will give you a boost in both offense and defense. Shukrani’s Triumph will allow you to use Spirit Walk longer, and give you a damage boost while using it.

Simplicity’s Strength, Enforcer, and Bane of the Trapped are generally the best Legendary Gems, all of which further increase your damage.
