I really want the spider ant countess for my build but I can’t sacrifice any points into the red tree. Im just using the default spider ant. Would be nice if we could choose any pet version, would allow for more build development.
You can run a full tree to capstone and use the final form of the pet you want, you just have to sacrifice the 3rd tree. I run a fade away build with Jabber, maxed Red then worked down blue to smg Jabber. Only left a couple of points I could spend in green though that I use to prolong Fade away.
You can get the buffs that every pet would give through your artifacts and class mods, just not as simple to finely tune.
I know all that but I still want the countess 21% damage reduction buff with my build.
