EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- I recommend a Belly of The Beast, it provides up to 40% increased maximum life and 15% to all elemental resistances. 
- ​You can also use a rare body armour with life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • SWORD
- ​I highly recommend using Hyaon's Fury as your weapon, it has up to 550 DPS, 10% Attack speed, 36% Lightning Damage, 40% increased Global Accuracy rating and it's super cheap.
- Of course, if you are rich you can buy a rare sword with lots of DPS and Attack Speed. Examples here 
  • SHIELD
- I recommend a Lioneye's Remorse, it's a great shield, grants up to 1728 armour, 210 life, 30% chance to block and even has extra defense against projectiles.
- ​If you have problems with elemental resistances you can use a rare shield with good Armour, life and elemental resistances. Examples here
  • HELMET
- ​A rare Bone helmet with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- ​Rare gloves with  life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • BOOTS
- ​Rare boots with movement speed, life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • BELT
- ​A rare belt with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
- ​An Essence Worm ring is mandotory, so we can use the Wrath Aura without sacrificing a huge amount of mana.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare unset ring with Dexterity and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- A rare amulet with life, dexterity and strength. Examples here.
  • FLASKS
- ​2 Divine Life Flasks. Look for mods like ''instant recovery'', ''removes bleeding'' and ''removes freeze''. Examples here and here. 
- Silver Flask is awesome to increase your movement and attack speed. Look for "Increased Duration" and "Increased Movement Speed during flask effect". Examples here.
- 1 Stibnite Flask for evasion boost and blind source for your enemies. Examples here.
- The good old Atziri's Promise for a big boost to your damage and life leech.

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.
  • You say the build is cheap, but a 6 Linked body armour is expensive. How?
- 6 Linked body armour is 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.
  • Why Cast When Damage Taken  at level 1 and Convocation at level 5?
- Cast When Damage Taken can only support spell gems that have the same required level or lower.
