LEVELING
  • LEVELING SKILLS 
This build has an easy leveling process. You can start using Ground Slam until level 12, then you can change to Sunder. Start using Molten Strike for single target on level 38. For auras and detailed leveling setups click here
  • LEVELING ITEMS
-​ Elreon Jewelry are in my opinion the best items to level any build, imagine goes all the way until lvl 50 ~ 60 without needing to spend one single Mana point. It's very cheap and you can start using already at lvl 1. I like to use 2 or even 3 of them for leveling
- Lochitonial Caress for gloves, mainly because of it's attack speed buff. (equipable at level 1) 
- Asenath's Mark is an offensive helmet, gives you even more attack speed. equipable at level 8)
- Goldrim is a defensive Helmet, gives you more elemental resistances (equipable at level 1)
- Wanderlust for movement speed and frozen immunity (equipable at level 3)
- Tabula Rasa is a great body armour for leveling, it provides a 6 Linked starting on level 1, not so cheap though. (equipable at level 1)
- Gorebreaker is a low level mace with high physical damage. Use two of them until level 13 (equipable at level 10).
- Limbsplit is a two handed axe with good damage and culling strike. Use it  until level 18 (equipable at level 13).
- Wideswing has better DPS and area of effect, use it until level 28 when you'll already be able to equip your Brutus' Sprinkler + Lycosidae (equipable at level 18). 
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.
  • How do you generate Frenzy Charges?
- Blood Rage grants a chance to gain Frenzy Charges on kill
  • How do you generate Endurance Charges?
- Enduring Cry
  • Why my Cast When Damage Taken setup does not work?
- Please make sure that Cast When Damage Taken is lvl 12, Summon Stone Golem lvl 14 and Immortal Call lvl 14.
  • Why Cast When Damage Taken at lvl 12 and Immortal Call at lvl 14 and Stone Golem lvl 14?
- Cast When Damage Taken can only support Spell gems that have the same required lvl or lower. At lvl 12, the required level of Cast When Damage Taken is 60, same as lvl 14 Immortal Call and lvl 14 Stone Golem
