Gear

Bones of Ullr
Sidhebreath
Helmet with +2 to Minion Gems (for Zombies)

Thats what i have so far

Every energy shield equipp will do fine.

Try to get Life FLasks of animation to heal your minions


Guide

Pros:
Immune to Damage Reflect
Not very Gear dependent

Cons:
Disconnects hurt you much
Partys will Hate you

Bandits:
Choose whatever you like

Play style is very simple:
summon your Brotem, curse your enemies, cast Raging Spirit
Even large groups of enemies will get stuck at the horde of zomies/skeletons so your spectres can do damage

If you want to go famring switch minion life gems with item rarity gems for better drops
even then you schould be able to farm piety (for example) in merciless without problems

Why i took Minion Instability:
With minion life mods in use, even a skelly has over 2k HP, witch means about 650 damage if it is killed.
My Zombies have over 6600 HP = 2,2k damage

Why i took Endurance Charge for Melee Stun:
Because your Zombies gain +12% resistances and damage reduction.
So they will not die so fast and you can hide behind them

please comment if you have, tips, ideas or questions
