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
- Razor of the Seventh Sun is very cheap and awesome for this build, It has up to 323 DPS, and grants 100% increased attack damage against ignited enemies.
- If currency is not a problem you can treat yourself a rare foil with high physical DPS, Attack speed and Critical Chance. Examples here.
  • SHIELD
- The best shield for this build is The Surrender, It grants 30% chance to block, Up to 120 Life, up to 1513 armour, +1500 armour if you've blocked recently and you recover 250 Life when you block. Unfortunately it's a bit expensive.
- The best budget option is the Lioneyes' Remorse, it grants 30% Block Chance, up to 210 Life and up to 1727 Armour.
  • 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.

- Diamond Flask for more critical strikes. Look for mods like "increased duration" and "increased armour during flask effect". 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 Rumi's Concoction is the best Flask if you want be even tankier.

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.
