Summon Reaper - Path of Exile

Inspired by the Witch’s Necromancer ascendancy class, Path of Exile created the Summon Reaper Summon Reaper skill gem. Summon Reaper Summon Reaper is a new minion that feeds off your other minions (literally). It inflicts bleed on enemies and can be commanded to attack specific locations.

PoE Summon Reaper Skill Build 3.15

Summon Reaper Summon Reaper creates a single powerful minion that uses fast melee physical attacks which cause bleeding. While the Reaper is active, you can use the skill again to direct the Reaper to a specific location, dealing a powerful attack along its path.

The Reaper wants to be your only minion. It reduces the life and damage of your other minions, and will consume them to heal itself and gain damage and speed buffs.

When designing this new skill for the Necromancer, we wanted to explore the idea of having a single ultimate minion. While there were ways to somewhat achieve this before, the Reaper is quite different in its abilities and interactions with other minions. It also feels much more active and directly under your command.

One quick note though… the Reaper will absolutely eat your Animated Guardian if you’re not careful.

How often it consumes minions and what the gem means when it says that the reaper "empowers" itself upon consuming your minions.

The Consume skill kills one of your minions and applies a buff to the Reaper for a base duration of 6 seconds. The buff grants 40% increased damage, 20% increased attack speed, 20% increased movement speed and 10% increased character size. It also recovers 50% of the Reaper's life.

The Reaper has muliple instances of the skill which its AI uses in different circumstances:
  • The version it frequently uses because it's hurt has a 6-second cooldown.
  • The version it infrequently uses because it just felt like it (and didn't already have the buff) has a 25 second cooldown.
