Cons

  • Can't leech life or mana

EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- A rare body armour with life, resistances, +1 Skeleton and +1 Zombie. Examples here.
  • SWORD
- Queen's Escape is mandatory here because it grants up to 100% Increased Minion Movement Speed, 200% Increased Skeleton Duration, 40% Increased Minion Damage and Life, +1 to Maximum Skeletons, Spectres and Zombies.
  • HELMET
- ​I higly recommend a rare Bone Helmet with life and +1 to maximum number of skeletons. Examples here.
- ​If that was expensive for you, only a Bone Helmet with life and elemental resistances will work fine. Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- ​Rare energy shield gloves with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • BOOTS
- ​Alberon's Warpath is mandatory because it grants 1 extra Skeleton and it's pretty cheap.
  • BELT
- ​A good rare belt with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
- ​A rare Unset Ring with life, dexterity and if possible some elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare Ring with life, dexterity and if possible some elemental resistances. Examples here.
- Use a rare amulet with life, dexterity and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • FLASKS
- ​2 or 3 Divine Life Flasks are important for this build, because you cannot leech life. Look for mods like ''instant recovery'', ''removes bleeding'' and ''removes freeze''. Examples here and here.
- I like to use a Quicksilver Flask on this build, so I don't need to spend sockets with a movement skill. Look for mods like ''increased movement speed during flask effect'' and ''increased duration''. Examples here.
- An Basalt Flask for physical damage reduction. Look for mods like ''increased duration'' and "Increased armour" Examples here.
- Rumis's Concoction as a defensive flask to boost your armour and block chance.

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 and Energy Shield as the gameplay shows and I've followed the Skill Tree step by step. Can you help me?
- Look for more HP and Energy Shield at your rare gear. You can have ''+89 to maximum life'' on your helmet for instance.
  • You say the build is cheap, a 6 Linked body armour and sword are expensive. How?
- 6 Linked body armour or sword are not mandatory for this build to work. Maximize a build with the best possible items and 6 Linkeds takes a good amount of currency. Start using 4 Linkeds on low tier maps in order to farm currency to upgrade your gear.
