EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
​Inpulsa's Broken Heart is the best body armour for this build, it grants up to 80 life, 50% increased damage, 25% increased shock effect and makes your shocked enemies explode dealing AoE damage. It's not so cheap though.
- ​As a budget alternative you can usa a rare energy shield body armour with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • WEAPONS
- The best weapon you can get is a rare wand with at least 80% increased spell damage, 80% increased critical chance for spells and +1 to all lightning spell skill gems. Examples here.
- But Singularity is an awesome budget alternative for you. It increases your damage and even add another defense layer slowing nearby enemies in 25%.
  • HELMET
- Get yourself a Helmet with "Socketed gems are supported by level xx Concentrated Effect". We'll use it for Vall Brade Vortex that will help our single target damage. Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- ​Rare energy shield gloves with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • BOOTS
- ​Rare energy shield boots with movement speed, life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • BELT
- ​A rare belt with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
- ​- ​A rare Unset Ring with life, dexterity and some elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare Ring with life, mana regeneration and some elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- ​A rare Amulet with Life, Dexterity and some resistances. Examples here.
  • FLASKS
- Divine Life Flasks. Look for mods like ''instant recovery'', ''removes bleeding'' and ''removes freeze''. Examples here and 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. 
- A Wise Oak to boost your damage with Lightning penetration. Remember that your uncapped lightning 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 on your rare gear. You can have ''+89 to maximum life'' on your helmet for instance.
  • I don't have enough Dexterity for all those gems, what can I do?
- Look for Dexterity on your rare items. You can also take the +30 nodes on the Skill Tree.
