Build uniques / Example rare gear

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


Rare Hubris Circlet

Look for rare Hubris Circlet with ~300 Energy shield and some resistances.

Body Armour

Shavronne's Wrappings

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.


Rare Fingerless Silk Gloves

Look for rare Fingerless Silk gloves with at least 130-150 energy shield and some resistances.

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


Rare Boots

Look for rare boots with 150+ Energy shield, 30% increased movement speed and some resistances.

Left Ring

Mark of The Shaper

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 Ring

Rare Ring with Elder Influence

Look for rare ring with Elder influence to synergize with Mark of The Shaper.


Presence of Chayula

Great defensive amulet for the build – gives us a lot of extra ES, stun immunity and huge amount of chaos resistance.


Rare Crystal Belt

Look for rare Crystal Belt with at least 40 energy shield and some resistances. Strength would also be a good mod to have.

2Hand Weapon

Tremor 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.


Jewel Setup

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


Flask Setup

Build uses following flasks:

1.) Dying Sun
2.) Bottled Faith (If you can afford it) / Rumi’s Concoction
3.) Lavianga’s Wisdom
4.) Diamond Flask with freeze removal
5.) Quicksilver Flask of Adrenaline
