- The best body armour for this build would be a Shaper one with a lot life, and more critical strike chance for spells. Examples here.
- As a budget option I recommend a Belly of The Beast, it provides up to 40% increased maximum life and 15% to all elemental resistances.
- The best 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.
- But Singularity is an awesome budget alternative for you. It increases your damage and even add another defense layer slowing nearby enemies in 25%.
- A rare helmet with life, elemental resistances and Energy Shield. Examples here.
- Machina Mitts are awesome, they leech mine damage as life to you.
- Or you can also use rare Energy shield gloves with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
- Rare energy shield boots with movement speed, life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
- If you already capped your Elemental Resisntaces I recommend Atziri's Steps, they grant Evasion, Life and chance to dodge Spells.
- A rare belt with life, Strength and elemental resistances. Examples here.
- Essence Worm ring is mandatory because it gives you the chance to use an Aura without reserving more mana. Let's use it to activate Wrath for more damage.
- A rare Ring with life, Strength and some elemental resistances. Examples here.
AMULET [Anointments Tips]
- Rare Amulet with Life, Dexterity, Strength 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 evasion during flask effect". Examples here.
- 1 Quicksilver Flask for more clear speed. Examples here.
- The good old Atziri's Promise for a big boost to your damage.
- A Wise Oak to boost your damage with Lightning penetration. Remember that your uncapped lightning resistance must be the highest. Details here.
- It's also good to have a Dying Sun because it not only grants 2 extra projectiles but also increases your area of effect in 30%.

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.
You say the Build is Cheap, but there are some expensive recommended items there. How?
- Those items are only Recommended and not Mandatory. Maximize a build with the best possible items and 6L takes a good amount of currency, start using 4L on low tier maps to farm your Currency
I don't have enough Strength for all those gems, what can I do?
