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.
  • All my mana is reserved, what can I do?
- The Essence Worm ring is listed as mandatory for this build. Auras socketed on this ring do not reserve any mana, place your Wrath there. 
  • Why Cast When Damage Taken  at level 1 and Immortal Call at level 3?
- Cast When Damage Taken can only support spell gems that have the same required level or lower.  At level 1 the required level of Cast When Damage Taken is 38, the same as Immortal Call at level 3. 
  • Cast When Damage Taken cannot trigger Vaal skills, why do you put them on the same setup?
- Vaal Haste is not there to be triggered by Cast When Damage Taken, but to be supported by Increased Duration. 
  • My Blade Vortex setup isn't cursing enemies, what am I doing wrong?
- Please be sure that your Cast When Damage Taken is level 1, Blade Vortex level 8 or lower and Cunductivity level 6 or higher.
  • How do you generate Frenzy charges?
- The ascendancy Raider has a passive called Way of the Poacher that grants 20% chance to get a Frenzy charge on kill and 20% chance to get a Frenzy charge when hit a rare or unique enemy.
  • Why Immortal Call if you don't generate Endurance charges?
- Endurance charges are not mandatory for Immortal Call to work, they just make it last longer.
  • Why does my Grand Spectrum have only 4% increased elemental damage?
- This is an old version of the item and can only be found on Standard League, look for the 12% one.
  • How can 3 Grand Spectrum jewels with 12% each generate a total of 108% increased Elemental Damage?
- It's 12% per each one you own, so if you have 3 every single one gives 36%. 3x36=108% quick maths....
