- 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.
- 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.
- A rare helmet with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
- 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.
- Rare boots with movement speed, life, elemental resistances and energy shield. Examples here.
- A rare belt with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
- An Essence Worm ring is mandotory, so we can use the Anger Aura without sacrificing a huge amount of mana.
- A rare Ring with life, Dexterity and some elemental resistances. Examples here.
- A rare Amulet with Life, Dexterity and some resistances. Examples here.
- 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.

- The good old Atziri's Promise for a big boost to your 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.
You say the build is cheap, but a 6 Linked body armour is expensive. How?
