Raise Spectre skill screenshot.jpg

True masters of the dark arts learn to use their enemy's greatest strengths against them, binding the souls of the fallen to their bidding. With a dark incantation, the caster's words imbue a slain being with dark energy, animating it with sinister strength and purpose. The raised entity possesses all the abilities it had while living, augmented further by the skill of its new master. With practice, many raised specters can be controlled at once, creating an army of undead to lay waste to everything in its path.

Description on the official Path of Exile website [1]

Raise Spectre is a spell that summons a defeated enemy as an allied minion.

Skill functions and interactions

    , raised Spectres retain the basic abilities they had in life. Although magic and rare enemy corpses can be used to create Spectres, the Spectres will be the normal version of that monster type, lacking any additional modifiers they may have had. However, intrinsic mods for the normal monsters will be maintained except for some minion-raising abilities of their own. For example, necromancers will curse enemies but not raise minions.
  • Support gems: Raise Spectre can gain the benefits of many different types of support gems, but not all of them may be beneficial depending on the type of Spectres raised. Minion-specific support gems will work on every type of spectre. For example, Greater Multiple Projectiles SupportGreater Multiple Projectiles SupportSupport, Projectile

  • Corpse targeting: Holding down the corpse targeting toggle (defaults to the "A" key) makes it easier to choose a corpse to raise.
  • Monster level: Spectres no longer have their level reduced to the level of the area they are in. Instead, the level of a Spectre is now based on the lowest of either the level of the monster they were raised from, or the maximum level allowed by the skill gem used. This is now indicated on the skill gem.

Strategy

As players progress through the game, there are several monsters that present interesting choices to supplement summoner and hybrid-summon builds alike. Even for a non-summoner build, a single curse-casting spectre whose AI helps them stay away can be quite useful. In practice, it's not that easy to keep a sole spectre alive without having other bodies around to shield it - this means parties and hybrid/full-summon builds. NB: Spectres keep their original monster-level, so players can't take a normal monster into Merciless and expect it to survive even one hit.

Party-friendly

The following list are Spectres that are compatible with parties in general since they are both useful and have a relatively low graphics load for others' sakes:

Combat Support and Distraction

These Spectres make better tanks and are melee.

Curse Specialists

These Spectres come with lvl 20 curses in Merciless.

Finding higher-level Spectres in maps

Aside from chaining maps and hoping in vain, there are several other methods to obtain higher-level corpses from which stronger Spectres can be raised.
