Summon Skitterbots PoE Ball Lightning Build, Links

Summon Skitterbots is a skill which reserves mana to summon two invulnerable Skitterbot minions. The Skitterbots search for traps and mines you have laid and trigger/detonate some of them. Mines detonated by Skitterbots are re-armed to detonate a second time. One Skitterbot has an aura that chills nearby enemies and the other has an aura that shocks nearby enemies. Skitterbots grant more trap and mine damage to the owner.

Per 1% Quality: 2% increased Minion Movement Speed. A Gemcutter’s Prism Gemcutter’s Prism (often abbreviated GCP) is a currency item that can be used to improve the quality of a gem. Each Gemcutter’s Prism Gemcutter’s Prism will always raise the quality by 1%. The maximum quality is 20%.

Summon Skitterbots Skill Guide

  • Even though Skitterbots are invulnerable, they deal damage over time to nearby monsters when supported by Infernal Legion Support.
  • The base aura radius is 30 units.
  • Each Skitterbot has a 3 second cooldown on their mine activation.
  • The Skitterbots’ base Chill is a 10% reduction of Enemy Action Speed and the base Shock is 15% increased Damage Taken. This is before the “Increased Effect of Shock” and “Increased Chill Effect on Enemies” bonuses of the gem are taken into account. This makes Summon Skitterbot a versatile defensive/offensive option for many builds, not just mine/trap-focused builds.
  • Item interaction with The Primordial Chain The Primordial Chain, ignores “You cannot have non-Golem Minions” modifier.
