      Follower:: 650k+ DPS Unity Templar = easy life in T6 & G-Rifts (ancient weapon)

      Why have I made this guide?

      Because this is something I think is always overlooked!

      ok everyone knows that for solo (or botting ofc) that a unity equipped follower is awesome (tbh it should be 1 of the first things you aim to get equipped)

      So with this in mind I present my guide to the TEMPLAR.

      Why a Templar?

      Because INSPIRE is simply awesome!
      Because he is reducing your damage by 50%
      Because he cannot die
      Because he heals you
      Because he hits like a truck

      Skills :: Choose what you want for your follower tbh,
      I prefer:- Heal, Intimidate, Charge and the best skill of all Inspire

      These 2 Items are 100% required for this:

      RELIC :: Enchanting Favor
      RING :: Unity (for both you and your Templar for 50% damage reduction... YUMMY!!!)


      Because your Follower CANNOT DIE then re-roll any vitality on any follower items into something useful


      What stats to aim for (or re-roll for) on follower items:

      PRIMARY:: strength on every single item (pointless to put dex/int items on templar even though some people still do this!)
      RELIC:: max CHD on relic (this will bring you to 150% CHD cap :: do NOT roll CHD on any other item on your follower!)
      RINGS:: max chc/aspd (and socket if possible)
      AMULET:: max chc/aspd (and socket if possible)
      WEAPONS:: +10%dmg, 7%Aspd & socket in weapon (imo BIS is Ancient Doombringer for the +%phys dmg)
      SHIELD:: 10% chc & socket for shield (Lidless Wall BiS because of inherent +% phys stat)
      SOCKETS:: put max ruby gem in every socket

      With this setup your templar will be at least 650k dps which helps you burn through T6 and G-rifts faster
      (my current templar follower is 744k dps) this is a big free damage boost which people seem to overlook

      Maximum Templar Stats (Enchantess and Scoundrel differ)
      Dps Max : 800k+
      ChC max : 34%
      ChD max : 150%
      AS max : 30%
      Damage against Elites : 118%
      Damage : physical (Max: +80%)

      Good guide, only started gearing my Temp today, and already looking forward to him becoming a beast!

      I use Thunderfury + Wyrdward because TF's chain procs Gem of Efficacious Toxin and Wyrdward grants me a 1.5s stun every now and then.

      No offense taken :) I use enchantress with a few of my chars purely as a debuffer and CC'er, but with my BiS geared chars I use dps templar purely for the fact that it is just free dps.
      I g-rift 40+ manually with my 'sader and 35+ with my Monk, and find the pure dps more helpful than CC as both of these classes basically stunlock everything in place :)


      I use TF & wyrdward on my Monks templar (which has 682k dps) the stun is kind of fun ;)

      edit 1 ::

      Forgot to mention LIDLESS WALL is BiS shield for the +%Phys damage


      Edit 2 ::

      now we have ancient weapons dropping your follower can make a LOT of use from these (if you don't need it ofc)

      My dps templar has broken 744k dps now thanks to an ancient barber drop @3.6k :)

      What about using a Rimeheart?

      I wonder what the 10,000% weapon damage hits for and how often it procs when used on a maxed out follower.

      OFC that would be situationally dependent but still...

      Would be pretty cool to see.

      When running a M6 DH and critting 300M to 800M dps, the followers 700 000DPS becomes like a tiny drop in the sea. The only thing the Tempar is good at, is to regen Resources and some healing features..

      Blizzard have totally overlooked the followrs the past 3-4 years..

      free DPS is free DPS so you may as well maximise it and get as much out of it as possible, so (imo) it is useful to know max stats for follower and how to maximise it's output

      While it may not be great for a hard hitting DH, it certainly helps Barbarians who are poor at single target DPS. Currently my Temp is 830k DPS, has a good proc TF and it all adds up to benefit me.

      If you like CC from your follower the best combination (won't be the best DPS unless you get godlike rolls) is to take an Azurewrath (chance to freeze) and change it's elemental damage to lightning and also equip the Wyrdward ring. RGs rarely if ever get to move. :)

      Saw this awhile back, and actually only started my Barb to get som str item. Then I found the Barb to be the strongest normal rift clear, that was awesome.

      And I just made my goal this morning. I've currently got 1,005,936.31 DPS on my Templar, my goal was a million.

      well you beat me :) , I got to 994k on my templar (all ancients: thunderfury, wyrdward, unity, ess of johan, freeze of deflection & relic) so he does nice DPS and CC's like a beast & heals :) I run him with my crusader

      I have 930k templar with my barb using 60% phys (shield,doombringer & amulet was tempted to use spare SoJ don't think elite damage bonus is used by follower though)


      at the end of it all, free DPS is nice and helpful, the fact that templar also throws out heals and boosts resource regen is the main reason for him :)

      (I would really like a decent Azurewrath to try out the perma CC templar but everyone I have had was complete garbage)

      You can aim for dps on your templar but can also put together CC items in aid of this, you will lose the +phys for your follower on this but gain crazy CC, so items to get are:

      Thunderfury (BiS CC weapon is Azurewrath re-roll main damage to lightning to proc wyrdward), wyrdward ring, unity ring, ess of johan amulet, freeze of deflection shield


      I use the above and have 994k dps on my templar (everything is ancient) just remember to roll everything possible to chc,aspd,cd and any sockets you put in maximum ruby gem (all hard caps on first page)

      Joka, what do you think of the next patch concerning followers? I am seeing that Barbs might be able to run without the required resource regen of Temps, and as WW will be viable, maybe Enchantress may make an appearance?

      it is a difficult call tbh, for instance I always run enchantress as a pure CC machine (a 40% blind Sultan of the blinding sand is godly to have on a follower :D) but temp has that "get out of jail free" quality in that he throws heals at you and can have the highest dps out of the followers

      I think I would still take temp into highest g-rifts for the heals (and the fact he CC's too)

      There is a pretty good YouTube video up about using the Eun-Jang-Do to permafreeze RGs. It works pretty good.

      Maybe look at testing something to combine that with the DPS?

      the only thing the follower is good at, is to stun the enemys...his 0.5M dps is small compared to your 1500M dps devil dust dmg...
