EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- The best body armour for this build would be an Elder one with a lot life, and more critical strike chance for attacks. Examples here.
- I also recommend a Belly of The Beast, it provides up to 40% increased maximum life and 15% to all elemental resistances.
- ​You can also use a rare body armour with life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • SWORD
- Oni-Goroshi is the star of this build. It's a 6Linked Sword with up to 90% increased critical chance. This sword grants Her Embrace when you Ignite an Enemy. It means 123% Physical Damage as extra Fire Damage, 20% Attack and Movement Speed, Immune to Stun, Freeze, Chill and Ignite.
  • HELMET
- ​I recommend Abyssus , because it gives a huge amount of extra damage.
- ​If you want to be even takier use a rare helmet with life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- Rare gloves with life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • BOOTS
- ​Rare boots with movement speed, life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • BELT
- ​A rare belt with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
- ​A rare ring with life, elemental resistances and accuracy. Examples here.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare ring with life, elemental resistances and Intelligence. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- A rare amulet with life, elemental resistances, Dexterity and Intelligence. 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 armour during flask effect". Examples here.
- Quicksilver Flask for more movement speed. Look for mods like "increased duration" and "increased movement speed". Examples here.
- The good old Atziri's Promise for a big boost to your damage and life leech. 
- A Lion's Roar to boost your armour and melee physical damage.
- A Cinderswallow Urn is a great flask for single target damage, replace your Quicksilver flask for it when facing big bosses.
- A Wise Oak to boost your damage with fire penetration. Remember that your uncapped fire 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 at your rare gear. You can have ''+89 to maximum life'' on your helmet for instance.
