EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- I recommend a Inpulsa's Broken Heart, This body armour grants up to 80 Life, 50% increased damage, 25% increased Shock effect. It also grants Shock immunity and makes shocked enemies explode dealing AoE damage. It’s my first choice because Skitterbots keep shocking your enemies and with Inpulsa’s explosions we get a really satisfying gameplay. Unfortunatelly it’s not so cheap and it’s hard to get 2red + 4Green sockets.  
- If you want more life you can also go for the traditional Belly of the Beast, it provides up to 40% increased maximum life. It’s also super easy to get 2Red + 4Green sockets.
  • BOW
- As budget option I recommend Quill Rain, it has 100% increased attack speed granting tons of Toxic Rain Pods on the ground dealing that sweet damage over time.
- Of course if currency is not a problem you can get a rare archer with +1 to socketed gems, +# to socketed bow gems, Damage Over Time Multiplier and attack speed. Examples here.
  • 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/armour. Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- ​Rare gloves with life, elemental resistances and evasion. Examples here.
  • BOOTS
- ​Rare boots with movement speed, life, elemental resistances and evasion. Examples here.
  • QUIVER
- I recommend a Quiver with attack speed, life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • BELT
- ​A rare belt with life, strength 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, intelligence and, if possible, some elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- ​A rare amulet with life, intelligence and some 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 Enduring Eternal Mana Flask is mandatory, Attack Speed or Curse Immunity. 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.
- Whichfire Brew is just perfect for this build, increasing damage over time and cursing surrounding enemies with Despair.

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.
