Intro & build description
I strongly believe you cannot go wrong with a miner as your starter build for a new Scourge league. This LL Blazing Salvo miner is no exception, it is definitely a great choice to start with.
- Really high damage, amazing boss killer
- Good clear
- Good survivability due to 7k+ energy shield
- Cheap to start, scales well with currency invested

Endgame body armour for the build, get it when you can afford to go low life – make sure you have at least 4k energy shield before you do.

Increased damage with hits against chilled enemies would be an amazing extra mod to have.

Great offensive ring for the build. Get it as soon as it drops in price, which should happen a few days after people have started farming Uber Elder.
Right RingRare Ring with Elder Influence
Look for rare ring with Elder influence to synergize with Mark of The Shaper.
AmuletPresence of Chayula
Great defensive amulet for the build – gives us a lot of extra ES, stun immunity and huge amount of chaos resistance.

Look for rare Crystal Belt with at least 40 energy shield and some resistances. Strength would also be a good mod to have.
2Hand WeaponTremor Rod
Tremor Rod is an insanely good weapon for its price, so we are using it for the build. Get it as soon as you can.
Build uses Energy from within for extra ES.
For even more defense, you could use Watcher’s Eye with Gain x% of Maximum Mana as Extra Maximum Energy Shield while affected by clarity, but it will probably be expensive.
On rare jewels look for following mods:
1.) Increased spell damage while wielding a staff
2.) Increased maximum energy shield
3.) Attributes / Resistances if you need them
Build uses following flasks:
1.) Dying Sun
2.) Bottled Faith (If you can afford it) / Rumi’s Concoction

4.) Diamond Flask with freeze removal
5.) Quicksilver Flask of Adrenaline
