I realize this is not really meta, due to having a huge army of pets to tank for you. I did notice that the aura of decay is somewhat limited range, and you have some skills that synergize with physical damage.
I was playing around with hungering souls as a “when hit”, to see if I could get some synergy in being hit alot. I am currently using a weapon/shield.
I tried to use a two hander, but got ripped apart doing that at higher lvl. Also seems like you need quite a bit of resistance.
I’m sure it’ll help once you can specialize in the other skills that you currently can’t. The blood golem does help alot with survival in general though. You got a corpse teleport to get out of danger as well.
Originally I went for all the damage nodes, but that ended up being suicidal without a form of survival lol. Got to about lvl 50 on lich testing this all out. Anyone else had any luck?
