Rare helmet with high life and elemental resistances.
Body ArmourRare Armor
Rare armor with high life, elemental resistances and ”-15 to total mana cost”. This mod can get quite expensive but it will solve any mana problems because spamming Cobra Lash with high attack speed can get mana hungry.
You can use any rare gloves with AS, Life and Res until you can afford
Fenumus’ Weave. These gloves are BiS for Cobra Lash, because of the high damage boost they provide.
This item is restricted to areas with the league flag for Bestiary active. There are additional ways to acquire league-restricted items, for example, divination cards.
Boots are one of the item slots that we use to get our resistances on, since we are running into res-capping problems with all the awesome modifier possibilies on other item slots.
So we prioritise Life + Resistances on the boots and we don’t care for movement speed at all, since we only use Whirling Blades to move around.
Left RingRare Ring
We use our Ring slots to fill up our missing Resistances. We also want +Life and -to mana cost on our Rings. Preferable Crafting option is +flat chaos damage.
Right RingRare Ring
Same applies for other ring, fill necessary stats/resistances.
You can use any rare amulet with high life, resistances and attack speed. As an alternative, you can use Maligaro’s Cruelty as well. This amulet suits this build pretty well, helps out with generating frenzy/power charges and further increase poison damage/duration.
BeltRare Stygian Vise
We will use a nice Stygian Vise with Life and Resistances.
