Aul’s Uprising is super great amulet to have. This particular build uses one which does not reserve mana for Determination.

The Saviour is a great weapon to have in an off-hand. It has decent damage and triggers ”Reflection” when we deal a critical strike.
When you attack with The Saviour and deal a critical strike, this skill can summon a Mirage Saviour. Summoned Mirage Saviours will fight for you using whichever of your attack skills you dealt the critical strike with that caused them to be summoned.
