Intro & build description
Are you tired of dying? Are you sick from slow builds? Do you wish for a build that has insane clear speed but also crazy high DPS? This build is definitely for you!
With this build, you can destroy everything the game has to offer! The best part is, all this on 5L! When maxed out, we have ~40M shaper DPS on 5L as the 6th link is melee splash (which provides us with no damage) and about ~64M DPS with close combat replacing Melee Splash.
- God-like clear speed
- Insane DPS
- VERY tanky
- Great build to start in a new league (Would suggest using cyclone/double strike as skill for a league starter)
- Can't do physical reflect maps unless you invest into it.

Abyssus is an amazing helmet that comes at a great price. If you feel like Abyssus makes you too squishy, you might want to consider using a different helm but I would still suggest sticking to Abyssus as the damage this item provides is just insane.
Body ArmourFarrul's Fur
For the build to function properly, Farrul’s Fur is necessity to push the build to the next level.
Rare gloves with triple res and life, phys dmg would also be cool if u can afford to get it or harvest craft it.
Boots with triple elemental resistance, life, and movement speed if u can get it or bench-craft it.
Left RingMark of the Elder
Mark of the Elder is an amazing ring. Price will differ depending on the roll. Get the highest you can afford.
Right RingRare Ring
Rare assassin’s mark ring till you can afford a better one. Get elemental resistances on the ring if you can.
Rare amulet with life, physical damage and accuracy. If you are struggling with elemental resistances, feel free to get amulet that fits your needs.
You can just use Perseverance unique belt till you get rare belt with resistances and life. Best in slot belt for this build is Ryslatha’s Coil which can get costly.
Ideally you want to get Paradoxica but any budget weapon such as Scaeva or well rolled rare will do just fine.
Cheap and very strong shield. Get Lioneye’s Remorse as soon as you can.
Rare jewels with life and resistances if you are struggling to cap elemental resistances and life feels to be low. Otherwise just go for a DPS jewel with two damage mods. Pairing both damage and life can get expensive.
