  • Awesome Boss Killer

Cons

EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
​Inpulsa's Broken Heart is the best body armour for this build, it grants up to 80 life, 50% increased damage, 40% increased shock effect and makes your shocked enemies explode dealing AoE damage. It's not so cheap though.
- ​As a budget alternative you can usa a rare energy shield body armour with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • WEAPON
- The best cost-benefit weapon you can get is a rare wand with at least 80% increased spell damage, 80% increased critical chance for spells and +1 to all lightning spell skill gems. Examples here.
Void Battery grants 25% spell damage for each Power Charge and 1 extra Power Charge. Using 2 you have 8 Power Charges and 400% increased spell damage. It’s expensive and doesn’t give much more damage than the rare wands. So only use it if you have a pair gathering dust in your stash.
  • HELMET
- An armour helmet  with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- ​Rare Trap Shaper Gloves with "Socketed Gems are Supported by level 20 Trap Support". Examples here.
  • BOOTS
- ​Rare energy shield boots with movement speed, life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • BELT
- ​A rare belt with strength, life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
- ​An Essence Worm ring is mandotory, so we can use the Wrath Aura without sacrificing a huge amount of mana.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare Ring with life, mana regeneration and some elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- ​A rare Amulet with Life, Strength and some resistances. Examples here.
- If you don't have problems with Strength and Currency you can also use Choir of the Storm for 50% increased lightning damage and 75% increased critical strike chance.
  • FLASKS
- Divine Life Flasks. Look for mods like ''instant recovery'', ''removes bleeding'' and ''removes freeze''. Examples here and here.
- Diamond Flask for more critical strikes. Look for mods like "increased duration" and "increased evasion during flask effect". Examples here.
- The good old Atziri's Promise for a big boost to your damage and life leech. 
- A Wise Oak to boost your damage with Lightning penetration. Remember that your uncapped lightning resistance must be the highest. Details here.

THIS BUILD'S FAQ
  • Is there a good place to buy unique items?
- Not only for unique items, poe.trade or pathofexile.com/trade are great websites for trading your items.
  • I'm lvl 40 and I'm dying a lot, what can I do?
- Please take a look at your Elemental Resistances, they are really important for your survivability. After lvl 40 try to keep at least 50% of each. The meximum is 75%, try to reach that when on end game.
  • I don't have as much HP as the gameplay shows and I've followed the Skill Tree step by step. Can you help me?
- Look for more HP on your rare gear. You can have ''+89 to maximum life'' on your helmet for instance.
  • Why are you not using Trap Support on your Arc Setup?
- The Arc setup must be in an item that already grants Trap Support like Deerstalker or Trap Shaper Gloves.
  • I don't have enough Strength for all those gems, what can I do?
- Look for Strength on your rare items. You can also take the +30 nodes on the Skill Tree.
