Scoundrel Follower Guide

Recommended Posts

Guest Jeff

Can someone help me understand what’s the point of a “buffing scoundrel” with string of ears, skeleton’s key, and Leoric’s Crown socketed with ruby(bonus XP)? If using skeleton’s key(Your follower cannot die) why would you need String of Ears which “reduces damage from melee attacks by %”, and Leoric’s Crown socketed with a ruby. Neither are (Emanates). Is the Leoric’s Crown with socketed ruby for leveling only?

The bonus experience from Leoric's CrownLeoric's Crown affects Paragon levels as well. The String of EarsString of Ears is not necessary in a Skeleton KeySkeleton Key setup, but is a nice thing to have in the slot if you ever decide to transition your Scoundrel to a speed farming setup (although the Enchantress is mostly recommended for the purpose) with Ribald EtchingsRibald Etchings equipped instead. With an "all skills" follower item, the Scoundrel will need all the mitigation he can get!

Scoundrel Dex capped at 25K.

But can toughness be augmented with Vitality on Ancients?

My understanding is Scoundrel is like a extra hand, mostly support, on Solo GRs? 

And you share somewhat. Is this right.

The skill scaling benefits from Dexterity cap out at 25k, yes. And yes, augmentations will affect your follower accordingly, including toughness ones! 🙂 

Followers are 99.9% there for utility and crowd control when you solo farm rifts and push GRs. Do not try to push them into damage, it will be a futile effort!
