I haven’t seen much in the way of Spiritualist builds, so I hope this spurs some fresh discussion.
This is my first posted build. I have been playing with this build on Veteran and am about halfway through. I have so far found it very fun to play, although it does take a bit of micro. I suspect I could use the AI to run a few things, but paying attention to targeting and tactical placement are still important. If anyone would like to go where I fear and run this on PotD and/or solo please let me know how it goes!
Here is my character build detail for the Siren. I hope you all like it.
Build Name Siren
Subclass(es): Beckoner/Beguiler (Spiritualist)
Description: The Siren is about control, both of your enemies and of some summons. She also has a good amount of debuff with most of her abilities focused on the mind and deception tags. She prefers short ranged combat using the blunderbuss as her main source of damage. She tries to remain as central to her teammates and summons to maximize her chant and other AOE abilities. Her intellect allows her control and debuff capabilities extended duration and maximizes the area of effect of them. Her dexterous nature allows her to utilize her talents at a frightening speed.
Game version: 2.0
Difficulty: Veteran (I am a wimp, this build might be able to go higher)
Companion: No companion or sidekick fit’s this class build.
Race: Moon Godlike (I chose this for some additional staying power, but any race will work.)

I picked what weapon proficiencies made sense to dual wield, so I could improve my reaction time.
I maxed perception because this is my trap-finder. As far as skills go, pick what you want.
I know a lot more min/max’ing could occur and feel free to discuss that here. Also, please comment and opine on the skill and attribute selections. I am not yet sure that the ones listed below are best in class. I am looking forward to your opinions.
Edited for format and some content. Word copy/paste import failed miserably . I will continue to improve.
Updated abilities based on comments from Verde and Ophiuchus.
Further improved formatting, rewrote some of the content to flow better, corrected chant to Aefyllath Ues Mith Fyr per Ophiuchus (thanks!)
Just realized that 2.0 came out a while ago, no changes there affect this build to my knowledge. I have updated the Version above to reflect that.
