EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- A Loreweave is not cheap but it’s the best to boost your damage, it grants up to 50% increased Elemental Damage, 60% increased Global Critical Chance and adds 10 – 36 physical damage to attacks.
- A good alternative is Belly of the Beast, it provides up to 40% increased maximum life and 15% to all elemental resistances.
- A Lightning Coil is also an awesome choice because it provides "30% of physical damage taken as lightning damage" It helps to endure the extra damage taken because of Abyssus.     
- ​You can also use a rare body armour with life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • SHIELD
- A rare shield with good evasion, life and elemental resistances. Examples here
  • HELMET
- ​A Abyssus is mandatory to achieve satisfatory amount of damage.
  • GLOVES
​Facebreaker is mandatory because it gives up to 800% more physical damage while unarmed. That's why your punches are so strong.

  • AMULET
- Rigwald's Curse is mandatory because of ''modifiers to claw also apply to unarmed''. It also give +7% unarmed critical chance and up to 36% critical multiplier. 
  • 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.
- 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.
- Bottled Faith is awesome for this build, it causes enemies to take a lot more damage from your attacks and even increases your critical chance.
