Hrimnor’s Resolve is dirt cheap but has many great stats that fit perfectly with our build. The life, fire damage and cold res are all good. Most importantly, it gives you chill and freeze immunity, because our build is fire skill.
Body ArmourRare Body Armour
Regular 6-link chest with high life and elemental resistances. Would suggest going for armor base as we require 5 red sockets.
GlovesRare Spiked Gloves
Spiked gloves with good life and elemental resistances on it is all we need. You can craft some attack speed if you want.
At least 30% movement speed, with good life and elemental resistances.
Left RingRare Ring
Flammability on hit ring is very strong for the build. It can greatly buff our dps and make enemies more visible in maps too. If possible, get one with life and elemental resistances.
Right RingCircle of Guilt
Circle of Guilt is very cheap and can give us tons of dps and offer great physical damage reduction too.
Amulet can be used to cover the necessary stat requirements. Get one with high life and elemental damage with attack skills.
You can anoint Thrill Seeker to avoid having mana problems.
BeltRare Leather or Stygian Vise belt
Belt with high life, elemental resistances and elemental damage with attack skills.
Disintegrator is a great balance between damage and defense. For the damage, the high phys damage plus Siphoning charge can scale our tectonic slam damage really well.
As for defense, the 25% block chance makes our character a lot more tanky than using other weapons. Since our phys reduction is constantly capped at 90% during combat, so the 150 phys damage taken is nothing.
Overall, this staff is the most cost-efficient option for budget weapon.
