- The Covenant is mandatory for this build because socketed gems have Blood Magic, this way Mana will never be a problem. It also grants 10% increased life and Added Chaos Damage support.
- I recommend dual wielding Void Battery, each wand grants up to 20% increased cast speed, 1 extra Power charge, and 25% increased spell damage per Power Charge. Since you have 9 Power charges, you end up with 450% increased spell damage minus 80% because of another mod, but 370% increased spell damage is too much man!
- Tulborn is a great budget, It grants up to 19% increased Spell Damage, 15% cast speed and a lot of added cold damage while you have power charges.
- Get yourself a Helmet with "Socketed gems are supported by level xx Hypothermia". We'll use it for Vall Brade Vortex that will help our single target damage. Examples here.
- If you are not having problems to achieve 75% elemental resistances, Winds of Change are good unique gloves for this build. They grant up to 60 life and 50% increased projectile damage.
- Rare gloves with life, elemental resistances and energy shield. Examples here.
- Great boots for this build are Inya's Epiphany, they grant up to 70 life and 5% increased damage per Power Charge.
- Rare boots with movement speed, life, elemental resistances and energy shield. Examples here.
- A rare belt with life, strength and elemental resistances. Examples here.
- I recommend you to get a ring with Life, strength and elemental resistances. Examples here.
- I recommend you to get a ring with Life, dexterity and elemental resistances. Examples here.
- The Pandemonius is expensive and not mandatory, but if you have the money to buy it you should. This amulet grants 20% cold penetration, 30% increased cold damage and it blinds your enemies granting more survivability.
- A rare Amulet with Life, strength, dexterity and some resistances. Examples here.
- 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 armour during flask effect". Examples here.
- Quicksilver Flask is awesome to increase your movement speed. Look for "Increased Duration" and "Increased Movement Speed during flask effect". Examples here.
- A Wise Oak to boost your damage with Cold penetration. Remember that your uncapped cold resistance must be the highest. Details here.
- The good old Atziri's Promise for a big boost to your damage and life leech.
