Intro & build description
If your favourite things to do in Path of Exile are running maps and farming currency and items, this build is for you. Spark builds are known for their top-tier clear speed and this one is no different. Despite its fast clear, it also has pretty good single target damage, enough to take down Uber Elder.
- Really good clear speed
- Good single target damage
- Straightforward build to gear and play
- All map mods, except elemental reflect are viable
- Good as a league starter due to cheap items
- Spark helmet enchants are expensive

HelmetCrown of The Inward Eye
One of the, if not the best helmet for the build, but it’s hard to get with 3 extra spark projectiles enchantment.
Other options include Rat’s Nest, Starkonja’s Head, Rare helmet with life and resistances.
Body ArmourRare Body armour
Ideally look for Vaal regalia with high life and resistances. Any extra energy shield you can get is also great.
GlovesRare Energy shield gloves
Look for gloves with 70+ life and high resistances. Any extra energy shield is good as well.
You could also look for incursion gloves with life, resistances and Puhuarte mod – (46–48)% to Cold Resistance
(30–50)% increased Damage with Hits against Chilled Enemies. They are usually cheaper than you’d think.
BootsEnergy shield boots
Look for rare energy shield based boots with high life, 30% increased movement speed and some resistances. Extra energy shield is great bonus.
Voidwalker would be another great option.
Left RingCall of The Brotherhood
A must have item for the build – it gives us lightning to cold damage conversion, damage and extra shocks.
Right RingRare Ring
Look for rare ring with high life, mana, some energy shield and resistances.
AmuletChoir of The Storm
Great amulet for crit spark build – gives us lots of extra damage, crit and clear speed.
Look for rare Stygian vise with life, some energy shield and resistances.
Duskdawn is our weapon of choice. It has everything we are looking for in a weapon – tons of damage mods.
Try to get 5-linked one as soon as possible, and when you have currency, 6-linked one.

4.) Resistances and attributes if you are lacking
1.) Instant Recovery Divine Life flask with bleed removal
