  • Good boss killer
  • Scales extremely well with currency invested

Tip: Click on the item to view it on PoE Wiki or to view similar rare items in poe.trade

Helmet

Frostferno

One of the best, if not the best helms for Elemental Hit builds. It gives us pseudo 6-link for the single target Elemental Hit setup. This helm can also be double-corrupted for a chance to get +8 to socketed gem levels.


Body Armour

Rare Body Armour / Loreweave / Kintsugi

Build has several choices to go for in body armour department. You could start with the Tabula Rasa, transition into rare 6-linked body armour later on or choose some of the unique options.

Good balanced option would be Loreweave, being all-around great chest for the build.

More defensive option would be Kintsugi, which synergizes well with Deadeye ascendancy.

Offensive choice would be Farrul’s Fur.


Gloves

Rare Gripped Gloves

Look for rare Gripped gloves with high life and resistances. Attack speed is a nice bonus.


Boots

Rare Boots

Look for rare boots with 30% increased movement speed, as high life as possible and some resistance.


Left Ring

Call of The Brotherhood

We use this ring mainly for damage conversion. Get it as soon as you start using Xoph’s Blood. Until then, just use rare ring with life, elemental damage with attacks and resistances.


Right Ring

Rare Ring

Look for rare ring with at least 60 life, resistances and %increased elemental damage with attack skills.


Amulet

Xoph's Blood

Excellent amulet for the build – it saves us tons of skill points because we don’t have to path to Avatar of Fire on the skill tree, while also providing maximum life, fire penetration and other useful mods.


Belt

Stygian Vise

Look for rare Stygian Vise with 80+ life, resistances and %increased elemental damage with attack skills.


Quiver

Rare Penetrating Arrow Quiver

Look for rare quiver with 1 good fractured mod, for example, high life, %increased elemental damage with attacks skills or global critical strike multiplier.

Then, use Deafening Essence of Misery to craft it – after you hit 3 good mods, bench craft something you need and the quiver is ready.


2Hand Weapon

Quill Rain

Quill Rain is the weapon of choice for the build due to its fast attack speed. You can use it as soon as you want, because damage comes from links in the body armor and helmet.


Jewel

Jewel Setup

Build uses following unique jewels:

– Lioneye’s Fall
– Poacher’s Aim
– 2x Combat Focus

Refer to Path of Building to see where to socket them.

Build also uses 1 large and 2 medium cluster jewels.

Good notables to look for would be elemental damage ones, like Cremator or Widespread destruction, or projectile ones like Streamlined and Repeater.

Fill out the rest of jewel sockets with regular rare jewels with following mods:

1.) Critical strike multiplier with fire skills
2.) Global critical strike multiplier
3.) Increased maximum life
4.) Attributes / Resistances if you need those


Flask

Flask Setup

Build uses following flasks:

1.) Dying Sun
2.) Quicksilver Flask of Adrenaline
3.) Divine life Flask with bleed removal
4.) Quartz Flask with freeze removal
5.) Diamond Flask with curse removal
