Cons

  • Evasion Dependent

  • Vulnerable to Physical Damage

EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- Hyrri's Ire Is the best body armour for this build, it grants up to 145 – 200 Cold Damage to bow attacks and 10% chance to dodge attacks and spells. Unfortunately it’s expensive right now.
- I recommend Queen of the Forest, it grants up to 2163 evasion, 70 life, elemental resistances and more movement speed. This body armour is the perfect combo for Tailwind.
- Another good choice is Belly of the Beast, it provides up to 40% increased maximum life and 15% to all elemental resistances.  
- ​You can also use a rare body armour with life, elemental resistances and evasion. Examples here.
  • BOW
- Death's Opus is mandatory for this build because it provides 2 additional arrows, so we don’t need to use Greater Multiple Projectiles. It also grants 100% increased critical multiplier, 50% increased critical chance and 10% increased attack speed.
  • HELMET
- ​A rare helmet with life, elemental resistances and evasion. Examples here.
- A Starkonja's Head is an awesome choice that provides 10% attack speed, 25% critical chance, up to +100 life and even a big boost to evasion when on low life.
- A more offensive helmet is Rat's Nest, it provides 15% attack speed, up to 75% critical chance and 10% movement speed.
  • GLOVES
- ​Rare gloves with life, elemental resistances and evasion. Examples here.
  • BOOTS
- ​Rare boots with movement speed, life, elemental resistances and evasion. Examples here.
-  You can also use Atziri's Steps that provides high amount of evasion, life, movement speed and chance to dodge spells. 
  • BELT
- ​A rare belt with life, elemental resistances and elemental damage with attacks. Examples here.
  • QUIVER
- ​Rare quiver with +1 arrow and some life. Examples here.
- When you have more currency, get one with +1 Arrow, Life, Critical Chance and Critical Multiplier. Examples here.
  • RING #1
- Essence Worm ring is mandatory because it gives you the chance to use an Aura without reserving more mana. Let's use it to activate Hatred for more damage.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare ring with life, strength, elemental resistances and elemental damage with attacks. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- ​The Pandemonius is expensive and not mandatory, but if you have the money to buy it you should. This amulet grants 20% cold penetration, 30% increased cold damage and it blinds your enemies granting more survivability.
- You can also use a rare amulet with life, strength, intelligence, elemental resistances and elemental damage with attacks. 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 more critical chance. Examples here.
- A Wise Oak to boost your damage with Cold penetration. Remember that your uncapped cold resistance must be the highest.
- The good old Atziri's Promise for a big boost to your damage and life leech. 
- If you have a good amount of currency you can also use Taste of Hate and Dying Sun for more Damage.
  • ENCHANTMENTS
- ​Helmet: 40% Increased Ice Shot Damage
- Gloves: Of Reflection
- Boots: Elemental Penetration
P.S. Enchantments are not super important, so don't feel bad if you don't have the right ones ;)

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.
