LEVELING
  • LEVELING SKILLS 
This build has an easy leveling process. You can already start using Smite on level 1. For auras and detailed leveling setups click here
  • LEVELING ITEMS
-​ Elreon Jewelry are in my opinion the best items to level any build, imagine goes all the way until lvl 50 ~ 60 without needing to spend one single Mana point. It's very cheap and you can start using already at lvl 1. I like to use 2 or even 3 of them for leveling
- Lochitonial Caress for gloves, mainly because of it's attack speed buff. (equipable at level 1) 
- Asenath's Mark is an offensive helmet, gives you even more attack speed. equipable at level 8)
- Goldrim is a defensive Helmet, gives you more elemental resistances (equipable at level 1)
- Wanderlust for movement speed and frozen immunity (equipable at level 3)
- Tabula Rasa is a great body armour for leveling, it provides a 6 Linked starting on level 1, not so cheap though. (equipable at level 1)
- The Princess is a low level sword with high damage and attack speed. Use two of them until level 20 (equipable at level 10).
- Brightbeak has more damage and super attack speed. Use 2 until level 28 (equipable at level 20).
- Lakishu's Blade is a sword with good attack speed and damage. Use 2 of them (equipable at level 28).
- Innsbury Edge has better damage. Use 2 of them (equipable at level 47).
- Ichimonji has better damage and 10% increased buff effect. Use it as your main weapon until level 62 when you'll be able to equip your Hyaon's Fury. (equipable at level 58)
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.
