EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- I recommend a Carcass Jack because it grants up 50% increased area damage and area of effect. It also grants Life and Elemental Resistances.
  • WEAPON
- This build uses the Tremor Rod, because this staff already grant Blastchain Mine, making it really easy for us to get a 7L Blade Blast Mine. It also allows our mines to be triggered twice. This combined with High-Impact Mine + Demolitions Specialist grants almost 100% chance to deal Double Damage. Above all it grants +2 to level of socketed spell gems and 60% increased spell damage.

- A Rare Energy shield helmet with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.

- ​Rare Energy shield gloves with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.

  • RING #1
- A rare Unset Ring is mandatoty. Look for one with some Strength and Life. Examples here.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare Ring with life, Strength and some elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- ​Rare Amulet with Life, Dexterity, Strength and some resistances. Examples here.
  • 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.

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?
- Look for Strength on your rare items. You can also take the +30 nodes on the Skill Tree.
