EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- I recommend a Cherrubim Maleficence, it provides up to 80% increased chaos damage and up to 100 to maximum life.  
- If you want more life you can also go for the traditional Belly of the Beast, it provides up to 40% increased maximum life.
- ​You can also use a rare body armour with life, elemental resistances and evasion. Examples here.
  • BOW
- I recommend Lioneye's Glare, it has up to 358 physical DPS, 20% attack speed, and the mod ''hits can't be evaded''.
  • HELMET
- A Starkonja's Head is an awesome choice that provides 10% attack speed, 25% critical chance, up to +100 life and even a big boost to evasion when on low life.
- ​A rare helmet with life, elemental resistances and evasion. Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- ​I recommend The Embalmer, not only because it adds chaos damage to attacks, up to 60 life and poison duration, but also because it grants level 20 Vile Toxins for a cheap 5L while you save currency for your Body armour.
- ​Rare gloves with life, elemental resistances and evasion. Examples here.
  • BOOTS
- ​Rare boots with movement speed, life, elemental resistances and evasion. Examples here.
-  You can also use Atziri's Steps that provides high amount of evasion, life, movement speed and chance to dodge spells. 
  • QUIVER
- ​I recommend Drillneck, because it grants up to 12% attack speed, 50 life, physical damage to attacks and 50% increased damage.
- Of course you can also use a Quiver with only life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • BELT
- ​A rare belt with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
​- ​A rare ring with life, intelligence and, if possible, some elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare ring with life, strength and, if possible, some elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- ​A rare amulet with life, intelligence and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • FLASKS
- ​1 Divine Life Flasks. Look for mods like ''instant recovery'', ''removes bleeding'' and ''removes freeze''. Examples here and here.
- 1 Jade Flask for a huge evasion boost. Examples 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.
- Whichfire Brew is just perfect for this build, increasing damage over time and cursing surrounding enemies with Despair. 
- Coralito's Sgnature is also a great flask for this build. It grants up to 75% increased Poison Duration.
- The good old Atziri's Promise for a big boost to your damage and life leech. 
- If you have a good amount of currency you can also use Sin's Rebirth for 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.
  • You say the build is cheap, but there are some expensive recommended items there. How?
- Those items are only recommended and not mandatory. 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.
