EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
​The Covenant is mandatory for this build because socketed gems have Blood Magic, this way Mana will never be a problem. It also grants 10% increased life and Added Chaos Damage support.
  • WEAPON
- I recommend a rare Sceptre with "Gain x% Physical Damage as extra Fire and Lightning Damage" and Incresed Spell or Elemental Damage. Cheap Examples here. Expensive Examples here.
- As a very good budget option you can use Apep's Rage, it grants a huge amount of critical chance and spell damage.
  • HELMET
- A rare helmet  with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- ​Rare energy shield gloves with life and a bunch of elemental resistances. Examples here.
- If you don't have problems with elemental resistances, I highly recommend you to get a pair of Winds of Change, they grant 30% increased projectile speed and 50% projectile damage.
  • BOOTS
- ​Rare boots with movement speed, life, elemental resistances and energy shield. Examples here.
  • BELT
- ​A rare belt with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
- ​An Essence Worm ring is mandotory, so we can use the Anger Aura without sacrificing a huge amount of mana.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare Ring with life, Dexterity and some elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- ​A rare Amulet with Life, Dexterity and some resistances. Examples here.
  • 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.
- Quicksilver Flask is awesome to increase your movement speed. Look for "Increased Duration" and "Increased Movement Speed during flask effect". Examples here.
- Silver Flask is another great choice to increase your cast speed. Look for "Increased Duration" and "Increased Movement Speed during flask effect". Examples here.
- The good old Atziri's Promise for a big boost to your damage.
- A Wise Oak to boost your damage with Fire penetration. Remember that your uncapped fire resistance must be the highest. Details here.

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 a 6 Linked body armour is expensive. How?
- 6 Linked body armour is not mandatory for this build to work. 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.
