Intro & build description
A build that does not require a major investment to do pretty much all the content in the game. This build has been tested up until the upcoming Archnemesis league and was able to do pretty much all the content in the game on about 1exalted budget. With the upcoming league, the build looks to be even stronger.
- An amazing league starter build
- Very high damage with very modest gear
- Can run pretty much every map mod
- Good clear speed
- Melee build

Rare helmet with high life and elemental resistances. Any other stats on the helm are just bonus.
Body ArmourCherrubim's Maleficence
An amazing and cheap item to boost the damage. Absolutely not necessary, but nice to have. If you prefer, you can use rare chest with high life and elemental resistances.
Rare gloves with high life, elemental resistances and for defense, chance to suppress spell damage.
Regular rare boots with high movement speed, high life and elemental resistances. If you can, get chance to suppress spell damage as well for additional defensive layer.
Left RingRare Ring
A ring with Despair on Hit. Rest of the stats are just bonus but would highly suggest prioritizing life if possible.
Right RingRare Ring
Regular ring with life and elemental resistances. If you are running into mana problems, I suggest crafting “non channeling skills have -# of total mana cost” mod.
An amazing amulet for poison based builds. As we stack DOT damage, downside of the item does not apply to us.
BeltRare Stygian Vise
Rare belt with high life and elemental resistances. If elemental resistances are capped, look into stat roll to cap the stat requirements for skills/gear.
1Hand WeaponRare Dagger
The main key point for the weapon is the implicit “All damage from hits with this weapon can poison”.
Focus on high elemental damage, critical strike chance and critical strike multiplier. If you can, get decent attack speed as well.
Shield with high life, high chance to suppress spell damage and elemental resistances.
