SHOWCASE
Venom Gyre
Main source of damage. Fires a returning projectile that can be caught. Caught projectiles spiral outwards when you use Whirling Blades,
Viper Strike
Remember the special Gloves with “Socketed Gems supported by Poison” and “Faster Attacks”? It is for this Viper Strike setup, use it to melt bigger bosses. This it our better source of single target damage.
Ancestral Protector
Grants 20% MORE attack speed, it increases a lot your DPS. Linked with Withering Touch they also debuff bosses for up to 90% more chaos damage taken.
Vaal Haste
Temporary aura that grants a huge attack speed buff. Use it on Bosses.
Vaal Grace
Temporary aura that grants a huge chance to dodge attacks and spells. Use it on Bosses.
Blood Rage

Malevolence
Grants 20% more damage over time.
Summon Skitterbots
They are going to keep Chilling and Shocking enemies for more survivability and damage.
Whirling Blades
Great Movement Skill that has an awesome interaction with Venom Gyre.

- I highly recommend you to get an Abyssal jewel with "Chance to gain Onslaught on kill", it increases a lot your clear speed. Examples here.

Watcher's Eye with more Damage Over Time while affected by Malevolence. It's expensive and not mandatory at all. But it improves your damage.

LEVELING
  • LEVELING SKILLS 
This build has an easy leveling process. Start using Cobra Lash until lvl 69 when you’ll equip all the mandatory items and start using Venom Gyre. 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. But low level ones might be hard to acquire if you are not playing on Standard. If you are playing on the Challenge League check the next ring.
-​ Atziri's Foible is an awesome amulet to solve any mana problems in early levels. (equipable at level 16)
-​ Praxis are the mana rings you want if you couldn't get a nice Elreon Ring. It grants a lot of mana regeneration and -8 to total mana cost of skills. (equipable at level 22)
- 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)
- String of Servitude is another awesome and cheap way to get a lot of 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)
- Bloodplay is cheap and it has great DPS and attacks speed. (equipable at level 15)
- Mightflay is cheap and has an awesome DPS for its level. (equipable at level 30)
- Widowmaker is also cheap and together with its great DPS it also grants high critical chance. Use it untile level 69 when you'll start using 2 The Wasp Nest.
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.
