Hi,

so I was taking a break from levelling my level 61 Druid WW and decided
to try raising as many minions as possible.

Adding a Carrion Wind ring with level 21 Poison Creeper and a Harmony bow
with +6 Valkyrie and level 10 revives (25 charges), I finally got:

Oak Sage
3 Dire Wolves or Grizzly
Might Merc
Clay Golem (from STONE armor)
Poison Creeper
Valkyrie
Revives (10)

Now I had an army of 18 minions fighting for me. Boosted by Might Merc
and Oak Sage and level 10 Vigor aura (from Harmony bow) we rushed through
the Kurast Bazaar and Kurast Sewers at /players 4 without loosing
anybody. At the end we reached Travincal waypoint and decided to call it
a day.

It's a pity Harmony has no IAS bonus. In a Chu-Ko-Nu or Demon Crossbow it
only gives 6fpa meaning 4.1 attacks per second. Just 10%IAS more would
get it down to 5fpa.

Are there any other items with callable minions?

Regards,

Oliver

Expensive, but:

Tombreaver, the unique polearm has 10% chance to revive the monsters
killed with it. Last ladder I had a summon necromance whose merc got
one I found in the pit. So, even his merc had summons then :)

And I forgot Blood Ravens Charge. But that is a Amazon-only bow with
Revive charges.

yeah, and as I don't have Metal Grid, I'd have to stay with Clay Golem. But
as I'm now starting Hell diff, I had to give up Stone armor in favour of my
upped Duriel's Shell.

again, an unique I haven't got yet. My small Zookeeper experiment has ended
now, but it was fun to see.
