Generic helmet with life, resistances or intelligence. Depends on your jewelry.
Body ArmourBelly of the Beast
Kaom’s Roots and Belly of the Beast combo provides huge life pool to this build, use rare chest with armor, resistances and life till you can afford belly.
Life, resistances, attack speed or flat physical damage. If possible, get all of these mods.
Makes us unable to be slowed below base movement speed, great for temporal chains curse and chilled ground. + makes us immune to stuns and knockbacks.
Left RingSteel Ring
Stack as much flat physical damage as possible paired with life and elemental resistances.
Right RingSteel Ring
Stack as much flat physical damage as possible paired with life and elemental resistances. If resistances are capped, stats like intelligence goes a long way.
Lapis Amulet will help you with intelligence stat requirement for support gems and gear.
BeltBelt of the Deceiver
Very solid belt all around, You take 30% reduced Extra Damage from Critical Strikes, it has resistances, physical damage, life and mod ”Nearby Enemies are Intimidated” which makes mobs take 10% more damage from your attacks.
1Hand WeaponSiege Axe
Highest possible one handed axe you can find/buy/craft.
OffhandThe Tempestuous Steel
Stat stick, gives us huge amounts of extra elemental damage scaled from our physical damage. Prismatic Eclipse works great in offhand as well.
FlaskSeething Divine Flask of Staunching
Instant life recovery flask which removes bleeding. Must have.
FlaskExperimenter's Basalt Flask of Warding
Reduces physical damage taken and makes you immune to curses during flask effect. Solid choice all around.
This would be first flask you would want to buy. Given how powerful flasks are in PoE, this is your best upgrade for flasks.
FlaskTaste of Hate
Taste of Hate is your second flask to buy, offers great defense and offense.
3rd strongest flask you can get. It is very cheap and provides huge damage boost to your attacks while leeching some of it back to you as life.
