CRITICAL SPARK

BUILD

INFORMATION

This is an Inquisitor based build focusing on the Skill Spark. This is a very powerful build able to reach high amounts of damage against End Game Bosses since your critical strikes ignore Elemental Resistances. It's easy to level and a great build for beginners.

Pros

  • Easy to play

  • Good currency farmer

  • Ignore Enemies' Resistances

  • Great Clear Speed

  • High Damage on End Game Bosses

Cons

  • You need to keep distance from bosses

  • Vulnerable to Elemental Reflect

EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
​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.
  • WEAPON
- ​I recommend Dual Wielding weapons that grant extra damage for you, but if you want extra defenses you can totally wear a Shield on your Off-hand slot.
- 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 8 Power charges, you end up with 400% increased spell damage minus 80% because of another mod, but 320% increased spell damage is too much man!
- If you don't have enough currency to buy a Void Battery, you can use a rare wand with spell damage and critical chance fo spells. Examples here.
- If you want to wear a shield, I recommend Lioneye's Remorse that grants a great amount of Life, Armour and extra defenses against projectiles.
  • HELMET
- ​A rare helmet with life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- ​Rare Trap Shaper Gloves with "Socketed Gems are Supported by level xx Trap and Mine Damage Support". Examples here.
- ​If you want to spend a little more to get more damage, you can get one with "Socketed Gems are Supported by level xx Trap and Mine Damage Support & Faster Casting". 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
- ​An Essence Worm ring is mandotory, so we can use the Wrath Aura without sacrificing a huge amount of mana.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare Ring with life, Dexterity and some elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- ​A rare Amulet with Life, Dexterity and some resistances. Examples here.
- If you don't have problems with Dexterity and/or Currency you can also use Choir of the Storm for 50% increased lightning damage and 75% increased critical strike chance.
  • 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.
- Silver Flask is awesome to increase your movement and cast speed. Look for "Increased Duration" and "Increased Movement Speed during flask effect". Examples here.
- The good old Atziri's Promise for a big boost to your damage and life leech.

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.
  • You say the build is cheap, but a 6 Linked body armour is expensive. How?
- 6 Linked body armour is not mandatory for this build to work. Maximize a build with the best possible items and 6 Linkeds takes a good amount of currency. Start using 4 Linkeds on low tier maps in order to farm currency to upgrade your gear.
  • Cast When Damage Taken cannot trigger Vaal skills, why do you put them on the same setup?
- Vaal Righteous Fire is not there to be triggered by Cast When Damage Taken, but to be supported by Increased Duration. 
  • Why Arcane Surge level 6?
- Arcane Surge needs mana spent to be triggered, level 6 is a good balance between Buff Power and mana spent needed.
