The gearing section is not 100% accurate. Have to work on some stuff.
So here it is: Innate max pierce affix is 25 on a Druid Helm. So max pierce with sacred craft + Bless is 35. But max pierce with Eerie is the 25 from innate affix.
As starter craft look for 15+ pierce and 3 or more Druid skills + nice Eerie rolls. Bless with whatever you need more and use Thai Runes to cap the pierce if still necessary. The GG Eerie craft rolls 20+ pierce, 25+ sd, and 4 Druid skills and high ED.

What would you recommand to keep them alive? Poison flash for 15% life ? MOing +minions life? Other?
Also do you make any use of the Firedance oskill granted by the set? I guess it's more for bossing, as it forces you to be static...
Thanks again for this great guide, gives plenty of options.


Firedance is really good boost for bossing, yeah:
For the weak fiends: put only 20 points into Fiends itself for capping regen from Symb. maybe even only 26 points in HB for the missile breakpoint. IN the Laek Passive only that many points that you feel comfy with the Laek...
That leaves some points for Poison Flash to boost the Fiends HP. you can balance them between Fiends and PF to get maximal HP with available skill points. No need to MO minion life. WHen you become stronger and get access to low CD TP you will kils tuff faster and use TP alot to keep your nice meatshields with you ...

Honestly for how little investment it is to get these items it's honestly worth having them on-hand as a prebuff setup. Banshees in particular really shine with this bonus.

Evolution of the build will continue in 1.6. Main features and points of interest of the new patch:

-Poison spec buffs. Acid fiends' aura now gives 1% poison spell damage per 1% minion resist. This, coupled with the other spicy fiends buffs (health doubled and increased ctc and damage of their poison flash) will make them tank and hit like trucks and can potentially lead to a great hybrid caster/summoner build. Looking forward to test this one asap.
-Stormclash relics stack can potentially make us reach a number of beams we could only dream of in past patches. Will depend on their effective droprate.
-New relics in general allow for a new dimension of theorycrafting in terms of oskills.
-New Hurricane skill. Still no idea how this will turn out to be. Needs testing.
-"Certain autoaim skills will no longer aim at zone lights". Hopefully Banshee will not go full pepega aim anymore in ta and fauzt.
-Elemental: damage increased by 20% :coolstorybob:
