Hrimnor's Resolve

Overall great helmet, decent chunk of life + increased fire damage for totems.

Body Armour

Soul Mantle

Best endgame chest for the build, The Kikazaru Rings are perfect additions to that item, reducing the effect of curses on you.


Rare gloves with life, resistances and armor. To increase damage of Searing bond even further, you can craft gloves with Essence of Delirium which gives 30% more Damage over Time of socketed gems in gloves.


Sorcerer Boots

I suggest getting Sorcerer Boots with 30 % movement speed, resistances and life. Sorcerer Boots would provide easy gem coloring, since we need 4 blue sockets in our boots.

Left Ring


We need 2 of these ring to counter drawbacks of Soul Mantle.

Right Ring


We need 2 of these ring to counter drawbacks of Soul Mantle.


Jade Amulet

Get dexterity here. Get as much dexterity as possible since you will be lacking it, life and some resistances.

1Hand Weapon

Doryani's Catalyst

Pretty much best in slot weapon for the build.


Leather Belt

High life, resistances and armour would be your safest bet. Flask charges are nice too.


Tukohama's Fortress

Best in slot shield, but it is expensive. Lioneye’s Remorse is great and cheap alternative.


Crimson Jewel

  1. Increased maximum life
  2. Fire damage
  3. Totem Damage

These are your main stats to look for in jewels.


Forbidden Taste

Really great instant flask, with some chaos resistance and regen on the tree you won’t notice degeneration from the flask after effect.


Witchfire Brew

Awesome flask for damage boost..


Chemist's Basalt Flask of Staunching

Bleed removal flask, must have.


Chemist's Granite Flask of Iron Skin

Granite flask with iron skin mod, makes you pretty much immune to physical damage for flask duration.


Chemist's Quicksilver Flask of Adrenaline

Movement speed flask.

  1. um nice build but there is no mention of flame totem gem. did i misunderstand? righteous fire + just decoy totem? i thought it was like RF + fire totems.

  2. He’s saying that your 6 link doesn’t include spell totem, so you can’t cast rf off the totems without it. Your picture shows the totems casting rf, not the player.

    • Please look at entire build – in gear section he has Soul Mantle listed as our body armour. And the very first line of the unique is “Socketed Gems are Supported by level 20 Spell Totem”.

    • Soul Mantle…….

      Effectively a 7 link RF, because the Soul Mantle has a free level 20 Spell totem embedded.
