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 on your rare gear. You can have ''+89 to maximum life'' on your helmet for instance.
  • It's hard to lvl up, my mana ends too fast. What can I do?
- You can use mana flasks or Elreon Jewelry with ''-8 to mana cost of skills''.  You can buy a lvl 1 Elreon Jewelry clicking here.
  • Why Immortal Call if you don't generate endurance charges?
- Endurance Charges are not mandatory for Immortal Call work, they just make it last longer.
  • Why Cast When Damage Taken  at level 1 and Immortal Call at level 3?
- Cast When Damage Taken can only support spell gems that have the same required level or lower.  
  • My Enfeeble is not working, can you help me?
- Please make sure that Cast When Damage Taken is level 1 and Enfeeble level 5
