Bloodseeker is a unique claw that not a lot of people are using, but in reality, it can be a great item to make your build around. With the instant leech mod, this claw allows us to become almost immortal if there is something to leech life from.
- Extremely high life leech which allows us to facetank most stuff
- Very fast clearspeed, can use Whirling Blades to move around
- 100% hit chance due to Lycosidae
- Great as a league starter build
- Susceptible to one-shots

Great helm for most attack builds providing us with life, attack speed and crit.
Loreweave is great, balanced option for the build providing offense and defense.
Look for Tombfist with 2 abyssal sockets.
Put Abyss jewels with life, critical strike multiplier, physical damage to attacks in these sockets.
Look for boots with high life and resistances. Movement speed could be nice bonus but it’s not necessary since we move around with Whirling Blades most of the time.
Also you should try to get “Adds 1-160 lightning damage if you haven’t killed recently” enchant from the Uber Lab.
Left RingRare Ring
Look for rare ring with life and resistances. Elemental damage with attacks is great bonus but can be expensive.
Right RingRare Ring
Pretty much the same as previous ring.
AmuletRare Elder Amulet
As an amulet we should be looking for rare Elder amulet with 2 options:
Gain x% of Non-Chaos Damage as extra Chaos Damage”
Gain x% of Physical Damage as Extra Fire Damage
If you could get critical strike multiplier on top of these 2 mods, it would be absolutely insane, but the 2 mods are extremely strong even without the multiplier.
If you cannot get these 2 mods together, go for the first one – it’s still really strong.
Go for Stygian Vise with high life and resistances.
A must-have item for the build. Get it as soon as you can equip it.
Also a must-have for the build: this shield makes sure we always hit enemies which is extremely important for crit builds.
Bloodseeker and this shield are 2 things that you should be focusing on getting first.
Look for Watcher’s Eye with “Gain x% of Physical Damage as Extra Lightning Damage while affected by Wrath” mod.
Ideally look for jewels with 2 critical strike multiplier mods and increased maximum life.
Jewel could look like this:
1.) Increased maximum life
2.) %to global critical strike multiplier
3.) %to critical strike multiplier with one-handed weapons
4.) another damage mod / attributes / resistances
1.) Silver Flask with freeze removal
2.) Sulphur Flask with bleed removal
3.) Atziri’s Promise
4.) Taste of Hate
5.) Lion’s Roar / Sin’s Rebirth (expensive option)
