No one using a spirit build?

No one? Does everyone really dislike it that much? I'm finding it quite good in multiplayer sessions, since you can spam barrage at distance.

Spirits are lots of fun to play, but single player wise, they're not viable at all.

That's my opinion

If you use a Spirit build, then you are going to need an AOE spell like Firebats (Dire Bats), Firebomb (Roll the Bones), or Acid Cloud (Corpse Explosion). I also would try to squeeze Vision Quest in there.

Here are some examples. For both, your opening is: turn on Spirit Walk, run up to them, pop your Soul Harvest and Horrify, shoot them as they try to run away. xD

w/ Vision Quest:

Basically, after your opening, you just burn them all to death with Firebats. Pick off stragglers with your Spirit Barrage. With Vision Quest, you should have virtually unlimited Firebats time.

w/ Rush of Essence:

More traditional. Your opening should scatter the enemy so you can focus them down with Spirit Barrage. When you're waiting on mana to regenerate, you use Firebomb instead. I would recommend people try this for their mid-levels (everything unlocks at 36).
