|Defensive Support||Offensive Support||Healing Support||Utility Support|
- +60HP Staff, other staff upgrades don't do much. Inscription is up to your choice because the hero doesn't really benefit that much from them. "Aptitude not Attitude" is the best choice, but not necessary.
- Full Blessed/Shaman's
- Vitae runes, best vigor you can afford.
- Cast spirits before battle. Keep in mind Soul Twisting can be queued easily.
- Avoid using Displacement if attacks aren't a threat.
- In tough fights, disable/micro Union.
- Always use Shelter before Union. If the hero fails to do so the spirits need to be micro'ed.
- Set the hero to Guard Mode.
- Additional offensive Communing spirits.
- Bringing only 2 defensive spirits (usually Shelter + Displacement) can save space and help heroes not run out of ST charges.
- Spirits affect minions, making the use with a minion bomber inadvisable.
- Enchantment removal.
- Spirits dying from AoE.
- This hero should not be combined with a Minion Bomber hero, as they will interfere with each other's builds:
- Players may choose to micro certain spirits (such as Displacement) depending on the area.
- Superior/Major/Minor runes can be swapped per player preference, but is not recommend since this weakens your spirits. Make sure you always hit the break point (12 Spawning Power) for 3 charges on Soul Twisting when using a 3rd attribute line.
- An easy way to get familiar with the maximum spirit range is to summon a spirit and walk until you lose it's effect.
