EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- ​Inpulsa's Broken Heart is mandatory for this build because it grants an awesome clear speed with the shock explosions.
  • WEAPON
- ​A rare Wand with "Triggers a socketed spell when you use a skill" is also necessary. Get one with at least 80% increased spell + fire damage and some added fire damage to spells. Examples here.
  • SHIELD
- The best shield for this build is The Surrender, It grants 30% chance to block, Up to 120 Life, up to 1513 armour, +1500 armour if you've blocked recently and you recover 250 Life when you block. Unfortunately it's a bit expensive.
- The best budget option is the Lioneyes' Remorse, it grants 30% Block Chance, up to 210 Life and up to 1727 Armour.
  • HELMET
- I recommend an Energy Shield Helmet with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- ​Rare energy shield gloves with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.

- ​I recommend using The Flow Untethered because it grants up to 20% increased cooldown recovery speed.
- ​You can also use a good rare belt with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
- ​A rare Ring with life, dexterity and some elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare Ring with life, strength and some elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- Use a rare amulet with life, dexterity and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • FLASKS
- Divine Life Flasks. Look for mods like ''instant recovery'', ''removes bleeding'' and ''removes freeze''. Examples here and here.
- Quicksilver Flask is awesome to increase your movement speed. Look for "Increased Duration" and "Increased Movement Speed during flask effect". Examples here.
- A Wise Oak to boost your damage with Fire penetration. Remember that your uncapped fire resistance must be the highest. Details 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 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.
