Hello Dear Reader , this is a setup oriented to reach 68 or maps the most smoothly possible:

TlDR of Ruthless Mode : The Ruthless is a veteran mode for people who seek a challenge via less Playerpower ( gear , ascendancy , link )
That mean you have to solve any defensive issues with Tree (Elemental Resistance/Life) because you will have longer fight again Boss and dying isn't an option (give health back to boss)

Necromancer Ascendancy is one of the most usefull for a League Starter thank to "Commander of Darkness"  with a +30% all Elemental resistances to you & your Minions.   Free guard skill 
Bone Offering + Mistress of Sacrifice for cap block

              Kill Them all : 2 Point can open a cluster or an extra jewel for more damage/ life etc

Muling : Do Tidal Island quest with both of them
1_Marauder(4) : Start Ground Slam Lvl 4 -> Molten Shell  (roah quest reward)
2_Templar mule if WItch Main(12) : Start Rolling Magma , take Holy Flame Totem , Vitality , Absolution (Merveil Cavern Reward)

All Active gem use during Campaign after Muling : (end-game setup in skills)
Raise Zombie
Summon Raging Spirit
Holy Flame Totem
Molten Shell
Clarity (stop it at gem level 8-10 more isn't necessary until you have mana issue )
Flesh Offering
Desecrate (Level 1 - no Gem up) (If you start a templar Main stop at this step with your Mule Witch)
Raise Spectre (Witch Gravicius Reward)
Summon Carrion Golem "softcore" - Summon Stone Golem "hardcore" (open the Door of the Mine "act 4" and go take it instantly)
Concovation (Siosa reward )
(Bone offering -> usable only after 2nd lab )

Flask start setup : 2 Life 1 Mana 2 Quicksilver
Brutus & Merveil setup : 2 Life 2 Mana 1 Quicksilver
After Having Clarity lvl 3-4  2 Life , 3 Quicksilver
With Clarity low level and having some mana issue : 1-2 Life , 1 Mana , 2-3 Quicksilver
Gear setup:
Use Hybrid ES/Armour or Pure ES item & Shield life gain on block for smooth recovery
6-7 Blue Socket
3-5 Red Socket
1 Green Socket

Brutus fight // use Holy Flame Totem to get his attention spam Summon Raging Spirit or Rolling Magma
Merveil fight her at level 14 setup you will have +13% all res
Weaver , lot of Magic monsters (elemental damage) again you , recommand to kill her after bandits . 
( When you have Absolution use it again trash minion// Summon Raging Spirit again boss & tanky Rare , it is difficult to use both as same time)
You can remove Summon Raging Spirit at end of the campaign if you wish

Absolution Support gem
Mandatory : Physical to Lightning / Minion Damage Support /Spell Echo
Speed support gem : Spell Echo(best) / Faster Casting / Minon Speed 
Bossing : Concentred Effect / Predator/ Lightning prenetration
Early Socket Filler :  Added Ligthning damage / Added Fire damage / Added Cold Damage / Summon Phanstasm

Tips :
OverLevel to level up more your minions gem Since in ruthless Gem XP is nerf by 4

+1 to all Minion gem on Helmet to check out
You can Raise Specter  , Stygian Silverback (act 2 - Riverway) for Frenzy charge if you want an early buff Specter ( he may die a lot - desecrate to revive him )

Holy Flame Totem for Minions when they take damage or near you (consacreted ground ->curse removal)
Molten Shell on Left click (replace Molten Shell with Bone Armour skill as Witch )

Use Enduring Mana Flask/Eldritch Battery if you have Mana issue or want to remove Clarity
