EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- A Loreweave is not cheap but it’s the best to boost your damage, it grants up to 50% increased Elemental Damage, 60% increased Global Critical Chance and adds 10 – 36 physical damage to attacks. When using Oni-Goroshi, this body armour also helps to mitigate the Fire damage per second caused by “Her Embrace”, because with it your maximum resistances are up to 80%.
- There's also the traditional 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
- Oni-Goroshi is the weapon for this build, it costs around 1 Exalted and its always 6 linked. It grants "Her Embrace" when you ignite an enemy, it means 123% physical damage as extra fire damage, 20% attack and movement speed, Immune to Stun, Freeze, Chill and Ignite.
  • HELMET
- Starkonja's Head is my favourite for this build because it’s meant to be tanky, and we need lots of Dexterity.
Abyssus is the best if you want to destroy a Big Boss like The Shaper, it provides 40-60 Physical Damage to Attacks and up to 125% Critical Multiplier. But it also increases in up to 50% the total Physical Damage Taken, so use it with caution.
  • 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 Anger Aura without sacrificing a huge amount of mana.
  • RING #2
- ​A ring with Warlord's Mark on hit is needed to sustain mana. Examples here.
  • AMULET
-  ​A rare amulet with life, elemental resistances, Intelligence and Dexterity. Examples here.
  • FLASKS
- Divine Life Flasks. Look for mods like ''instant recovery'' and ''removes bleeding''. Examples here and here.
- Diamond Flask for more critical strikes. Look for mods like "increased duration" and "increased armour during flask effect". Examples here.
- The good old Atziri's Promise for a big boost to your damage and life leech. 
- A Lion's Roar to boost your armour and melee physical damage.
- A Wise Oak to boost your damage with fire penetration. Remember that your uncapped fire resistance must be the highest. Details here.
- A Rumi's Concoction grants not only 3000 armour but also a good chance to block attacks and spells.
- A Cinderswallow Urn grants the Onslaugh buff and cause ignited enemies to take 10% more damage.

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.
  • How do you generate Frenzy Charges?
- Blood Rage grants a chance to gain Frenzy Charges on kill
