  • Expensive

EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- Shavronne's Wrappings is mandatory because it's a low life build and without it's "Chaos damage does not bypass energy shield" mod chaos damage would kill you instantly.
  • WAND
- Obliteration is mandatory because it causes enemies you kill to explode, dealing a % of their life as chaos damage. Now thanks to Shaper of Flames, all damage can Ignite. So the Explosions + Cluster Node Fan the Flames cause an amazing chain reaction.
  • STAFF
- Of course, Obliteration Wands are only for Clearing Maps. For Bosses we’ll press “X” on our keyboard and use a Searing Touch instead. This staff grants up to 90% Increased Fire Damage, +2 to level of all Fire Skills and up to +60 to fire damage over time multiplier. 
  • HELMET
- Rare Helmet with at least 300 Energy Shield. Examples here.
- If you have more currency get one with at least 300 Energy Shield and " Nearby Enemies have -9% to Fire Resistance". Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- Rare Gloves with at least 200 Energy Shield. Examples here.
- If you have more currency get one with at least 200 Energy Shield and fire damage over time multiplier. Examples here.
  • BOOTS
- Abberath's Hooves are the stars of this build. Every time you take a step you’ll deal fire damage in a small area around you. This is what triggers the ignite that initiates the explosions.
  • BELT
- ​A rare crystal belt with at least 100 Energy Shield and increased maximum Energy Shield. Examples here.
- If you have more currency get one get one that also has "Increased Energy Shield From Body Armour". Examples here.
  • RING #1
- ​Malachai's Artifice is mandatory because it grants Elemental Equilibrium for socketed gems. We’ll socket Lightning Golem on it, so when your golem attack it will reduce enemies’ Fire Resistance in 50%. This gives you a big damage boost. Since we’re socketing a blue gem in it, this ring also grants up to + 100% to Lightning Resistance. 
  • RING #2
- ​A rare ring with at least some energy shield, Aspec of the Spider and at least 40% to Fire and Cold resistance. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- A rare amulet with at least +30 to all attributes, Increased Maximum Energy Shield, Cold and Fire Resistance. Examples here.
  • FLASKS
- Quicksilver flask is awesome for increasing your Clear Speed, Best Mods are ‘’Increased Movement Speed During Flask Effect’’ and ‘’Increased Duration’’. Examples here.
- A Witchfire's Brew is awesome for clearing maps, it grants up to 40% increased damage over time and curses nearby enemies with Despair for more damage over time taken.
- A Cinderswallow Urn is awesome because increases damage taken by ignited enemies and grants more movement speed with Onslaught.
- Sulphur Flask is another good choice, it grants 40% increased damage and more  regeneration. Look for one with Increased Duration and Immune to bleeding. Exampler here.
- Quartz Flask is super important because it allows us to move through enemies. Look for one with Increased Duration and Immune to Freeze. Examples 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 300 Energy Shield on your helmet for instance.
