EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- I recommend a Belly of the Beast, it provides up to 40% increased maximum life and 15% to all elemental resistances. but it's hard to get 4 blue sockets on it.  
- A good alternative is Atziri's Splendour , it grants up to 24% to all elemental resistances, 100 life, 100 mana and life on kill. Easy to get 4 blue sockets.
- If you have enough currency and like to have a big heath pool, you can also use a Kaom's Heart
-  You can also use a rare body armour with life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • STAFF
- Duskdawn is the best staff for this build, it provides a huge amount of damage. But it's not cheap
- Taryn's Shiver is an awesome budget alternative
  • HELMET
- ​A rare helmet with life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- ​Rare gloves with life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
- You can also use Facebreaker, because it provides critical multiplier and it's easy to get 4 blue sockets for the Orb of Storms setup.
  • BOOTS
- ​Rare boots with movement speed, life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • BELT
- ​A rare belt with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
- ​A rare Ring with life, dexterity and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare Ring with life, dexterity and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- A rare amulet with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • FLASKS
- ​2 Divine Life Flasks. Look for mods like ''instant recovery'', ''removes bleeding'' and ''removes freeze''. Examples here and here.
- 1 Diamond Flask for aditional Critical Chance. Examples here.
- Rumi's Concoction for more armour and block chance.
- The good old Atziri's Promise for a big boost to your damage and life leech.

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 Power charges?
- Orb of Storm + Power Charge on Critical.
  • The first jewel socket has not enough intelligence around for First Snow to work, am I missing something?
- The intelligence around the socket just need to be there, it's not required to be allocated.
  • I've decided to use a Kaom's Heart, where should I place the Vaal Storm Call setup?
- By using a Kaom's Heart you are trading this extra single target damage for more life, so you don't place the Vaal Storm Call setup anywhere.
