How to Use the Spirit of Arachyr Set

The Spirit of Arachyr set focuses on 'Creature' skills — Corpse Spiders Corpse Spiders, Plague of Toads Plague of Toads, Firebats Firebats, Locust Swarm Locust Swarm, Hex Hex and Piranhas Piranhas — elevating them with a considerable damage buff from the 6-piece bonus. While the skill bonuses my seem varied at first glance, only a few of them are supported by the necessary legendary items that make an endgame build have potential; Firebats Firebats is by far the best one on the list.

  • 2-piece bonus
    • Summon a permanent Spider Queen who leaves behind webs that deal 4000% weapon damage over 5 seconds and Slows enemies. The Spider Queen is commanded to move to where you cast your Corpse Spiders.
  • 4-piece bonus
    • Hex gains the effect of the Toad of Hugeness rune. After summoning a Toad of Hugeness, you gain 50% damage reduction and heal for 10% of your maximum Life per second for 15 seconds.
  • 6-piece bonus
    • The damage of your creature skills is increased by 9000%. Creature skills are Corpse Spiders, Plague of Toads, Firebats, Locust Swarm, Hex, and Piranhas.

The 2-piece set bonus is mostly cosmetic for anything past the earliest of character progression stages. It summons a Spider Queen with a lingering 'web' damage effect on her trail, which can be directed bia Corpse Spiders Corpse Spiders.

The 4-piece set bonus forces Arachyr builds to use Hex Hex, as their defenses depend on its use. Amusingly, Hex Hex gains the Toad of Hugeness Toad of Hugeness rune for free, and its periodic resummon grants you the necessary damage reduction, plus a decent heal-over-time bonus.

The 6-piece set bonus simply increases the damage of all skills in the 'Creature' category outlined above.
