  • Fun Playstyle

  • No Mandatory Uniques

Cons

  • Evasion Dependent

EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- I recommend a Belly of the Beast, it provides up to 40% increased maximum life and 15% to all elemental resistances.  
- Another good alternative is Queen of the Forest, it grants up to 2163 evasion, 70 life, elemental resistances and more movement speed.
- ​You can also use a rare body armour with life, elemental resistances and evasion. Examples here.
  • WAND
-  A cheap Piscator's Vigil is awesome for the job.
- But if you have enough currency to buy a Wand with at least a 250 Elemental DPS, use it. Examples here.
  • HELMET
- I recommend Starkonja's Head, it grants attack speed, critical chance, life and extra evasion.
- Could be an offensive Rat's Nest, it grants attack speed, critical chance and movement speed.
- ​A rare helmet with life, elemental resistances and evasion. Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- ​I highly recommend for you to use Thunderfists, it's cheap and increases your damage by a lot.
  • BOOTS
- ​Rare boots with movement speed, life, elemental resistances and evasion. Examples here.
-  You can also use Atziri's Steps that provides high amount of evasion, life, movement speed and chance to block spells. 
- Darkray Vectors is also a great choice, it grants +1 Frenzy Charge, extra chance to dodge attacks and more movement speed.
  • SHIELD
- ​A rare shield with good evasion, life and elemental resistances. Examples here
- If you want to spend a little more currency I recommend Lycosidae for 100% hit rate.
  • BELT
- ​A rare belt with life, elemental resistances and elemental damage with attacks. Examples here.
  • RING #1
- ​A rare ring with life, elemental resistances and elemental damage with attacks. Examples here.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare ring with life, elemental resistances and elemental damage with attacks. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- A rare amulet with life and a bunch of Intelligence and strength. Examples here.
  • FLASKS
- Divine Life Flasks. Look for mods like ''instant recovery'', ''removes bleeding'' and ''removes freeze''. Examples here and here.
- Stibnite Flask for evasion boost and blind source for your enemies. Examples here.
- Diamond Flask, for more critical strikes. Examples here.
- The good old Atziri's Promise for a big boost to your damage and life leech. 
- If you have a good amount of currency you can also use a Dying Sun for more Barrage damage

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 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 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.
  • Why Cast When Damage Taken  at level 1 and Immortal Call at level 3?
- Cast When Damage Taken can only support spell gems that have the same required level or lower.  At level 1 the required level of Cast When Damage Taken is 38, the same as Immortal Call at level 3. 
  • How do you generate Frenzy charges?
- The ascendancy Raider has a passive called Way of the Poacher that grants 20% chance to get a Frenzy charge on kill and 20% chance to get a Frenzy charge when hit a rare or unique enemy.
  • How do you generate Power charges?
- Herald of Ice + Assassin's Mark + Curse on Hit
  • Why Immortal Call if you don't generate Endurance charges?
- Endurance charges are not mandatory for Immortal Call to work, they just make it last longer.
