EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- I recommend a Kintsugi, it grants up to 1689 Evasion, 80 life, 30% Fire Resistance and 20% less damage taken if you haven't been hit recently.
- As a budget option I recommend Carcass Jack, it grants up to 50% increased area of effect and area damage. It also grants up to 70 Life, 12% to all elemental resistances and 1045 Evasion.
  • BOW
- The Ideal bow ia a rare one with +1 Level of Socketed Gems and +2 Level of Socketed Support or Bow Gems and a lot of Damage Over Time Multiplier, like these. But they are expensive. While Saving currency to buy it you can use a Medium Range bow with +1 Level of Socketed Gems and +2 Level of Socketed Support or Bow Gems and some Chaos Damage Over Time Multipier, like these.
- But if even the Medium Range Bow is still too expensive for you, use the 100% increased attack speed unique bow Quill Rain.
  • HELMET
- A Starkonja's Head is an awesome choice that provides 10% attack speed, up to +100 life and even a big boost to evasion when on low life.
- If you have more currency, the best helmet you can get is a rare one with some evasion, at least 70 Life and "Nearby enemies have -9% to chaos resistance". Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- ​I highly recommend you to use Fenumu's Weave. They not only grant Aspect of the Spider, but also up to 50 Life, 9% increased Attack Speed and 216 Evasion.
- ​You can also use rare gloves with life, elemental resistances and evasion. Examples here.
  • BOOTS
- ​Rare boots with movement speed, life, elemental resistances and evasion. Examples here.
  • QUIVER
- I recommend a Quiver with attack speed, life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
- Of course if you have more currency you can also use a Quiver with a lot of Damage Over Time Multiplier for more damage. Examples here.
  • BELT
- ​A rare belt with life, strength and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
​- ​A rare ring with life, intelligence or Strength and, if possible, some elemental resistances. Examples here.
​- Now, if you want to be able to sustain your mana without an Enduring Mana flask, you need to look for a rare ring with -x to mana cost of skills, life, intelligence or Strength and some elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #2
​- ​A rare ring with life, intelligence or Strength and, if possible, some elemental resistances. Examples here.
​- Now, if you want to be able to sustain your mana without an Enduring Mana flask, you need to look for a rare ring with -x to mana cost of skills, life, intelligence or Strength and some elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- ​A rare amulet with life, Strength and some elemental resistances. Examples here.

  • FLASKS
- ​1 Divine Life Flasks. Look for mods like ''instant recovery'', ''removes bleeding'' and ''removes freeze''. Examples here and here.
- 1 Enduring Eternal Mana Flask is mandatory, Attack Speed or Curse Immunity. Examples here and here. It's only mandatory while you don't have 2 rings + 1 amulet with -x to mana cost of skills.
- Jade Flask is awesome to increase your survivability. Look for "Increased Duration" and "Increased Evasion during flask effect". Examples here.
- Dying Sun is a great flask for this build, it grants +2 Arrows and increased area of effect for more clear speed.
- Whichfire Brew is just perfect for this build, increasing damage over time and cursing surrounding enemies with Despair.

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.
