Hrimnor's Resolve

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 Armour

Rare Body Armour

Regular 6-link chest with high life and elemental resistances. Would suggest going for armor base as we require 5 red sockets.


Rare 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.


Rare Boots

At least 30% movement speed, with good life and elemental resistances.

Left Ring

Rare 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 Ring

Circle of Guilt

Circle of Guilt is very cheap and can give us tons of dps and offer great physical damage reduction too.


Rare Amulet

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.


Rare Leather or Stygian Vise belt

Belt with high life, elemental resistances and elemental damage with attack skills.

2Hand Weapon


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.


Rare Jewels

  1. Increased maximum life
  2. Increased physical damage
  3. Increased area damage
  4. Attack speed


Flask Setup

  1. Lion’s Roar
  2. The Wise Oak
  3. Cinderswallow Urn
  4. Chemist’s Basalt Flask of Warding
  5. Chemist’s Quicksilver Flask of Staunching
