EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- The best option is Kaom's Heart for more life, because we don't really need the sockets. It's not so cheap and you'll need a lot of extra Strength to equip it.
Belly of the Beast is the best budget option, it grants up to 40% increased life and 15% to all elemental resistances. Use it until you farm currency and Strength to buy your Kaom's Heart.
  • BOW
- As budget option I recommend Silverbough, it grants +1 level of socket gems, +1 level of socketed bow gems.
- Of course when you have more currency you can get a rare archer with +1 to socketed gems, +2 to socketed bow gems and Chaos Damage Over Time Multiplier. Examples here.
  • HELMET
- ​A rare helmet with life, elemental resistances and evasion/armour. Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- ​Rare gloves with life, elemental resistances and evasion/energy shield. Examples here.
  • BOOTS
- ​Rare boots with movement speed, life, elemental resistances and armour/energy shield. Examples here.
  • QUIVER
- I recommend a Quiver with life and chaos damage over time multiplier. Examples here.
  • BELT
- ​A rare belt with life, strength and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
​- ​A rare ring with life, strength 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, strength 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.
- Quicksilver Flask is awesome to increase your movement 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.
