EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- My favorite is Carcass Jack, it provides up to 50% increased area of effect and damage, up to 70 life and 12% to all elemental resistances. It's also easy to get the right colors.
- 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.
  • BOOTS
- ​Rare boots with movement speed, life, elemental resistances and evasion. Examples here.
  • BELT
- ​A rare belt with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
- ​A rare Steel Ring with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare Steel Ring with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • 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.
- Quicksilver Flask for more clear speed. Examples here.
- Diamond Flask for more critical strikes. Look for mods like "increased duration" and "increased armour during flask effect". Examples here.
- A Lion's Roar to boost your armour and melee physical 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.
  • If you are unarmed, why do you take claw nodes on the skill tree?
- The mandatory amulet Rigwald's Curse has ''modifiers to claws also apply to unarmed''.
