EQUIPMENT

  • HELMET
- Starkonja's Head is a great helmet if you want to stay safe, it provides up to 100 maximum life and a huge evasion buff when on low life.

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.
  • How do you generate Frenzy Charges?
- Blood Rage grants a chance to get Frenzy Charges on Kill.
  • Why do you only place Support Gems on your Axe?
- Because Ngamahu’s Flame grants 20% chance to trigger Molten Burst on hit, those support gems make Molten Burst more powerful.
