- The best weapon you can get for this build is a rare Wand with at least 80% increased spell damage, 80% increased critical chance for spells and +1 to level of all fire gems. Examples here
- A Divinarius is an awesome alternative you can't find or craft a rare Wand like that. It grants 70% increased spell damage and a bunch of extra critical chance or multiplier depending if you've killed recently or not. They are not cheap though.
- Doryani's Catalyst is an awesome budget alternative for you, it grants up to 132% increased elemental damage each.

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.
  • You say the Build is Cheap, but there are some expensive recommended items there. How?
- Those items are only Recommended and not Mandatory. Maximize a build with the best possible items and 6L takes a good amount of currency, start using 4L on low tier maps to farm your Currency
  • I don't have enough Strength for all those gems, what can I do?
- Look for Strength on your rare items. You can also take the +30 nodes on the Skill Tree.
