Gear

Capping your elemental resistances is essential and it should always be your top priority in any build; it should be the first thing you do when gearing up a character. Obtaining a 6-link, while very powerful and certainly recommended, can potentially be very expensive (requiring an average of 1500 Orbs of Fusing, obviously depending on your luck); as such, this should not really be a goal for you while gearing up, and you should instead settle for a 5-link until you have enough resources.

Helmet

Geofri's Crest Geofri's Crest is a budget-friendly Helmet, which will also benefit your Empower Support Empower Support; this Helmet can act as a pseudo 5-Link if you do not have anything better. A well rolled rare Helmet is best in slot. For a labyrinth enchant, look for “Detonate Dead has a 45% chance to detonate an additional corpse”. The rare affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (until capped)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 90)
  3. Nearby Enemies have #% to Fire Resistance (Scorched Fossil Scorched Fossil)

Body Armour

Carcass Jack Carcass Jack is a great choice when it comes to Body Armours. A simple Tabula Rasa Tabula Rasa can carry you a long way. Kaom's Heart Kaom's Heart can be equipped if you manage to socket your main link in your Weapon or Helmet. You can also use a rare Body Armour. The rare affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (until capped)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 100)
  3. +#% increased maximum life (Elder mod)

Gloves

Well rolled rare Gloves are best in slot, ideally you would want Fingerless Silk Gloves Fingerless Silk Gloves for the additional damage. The rare affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (until capped)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 80)
  3. +# to Dexterity

Boots

Well-rolled rare Boots are best in slot. For labyrinth enchant, look for “#% of Damage Leeched as Life and Mana if you’ve Killed Recently”. The rare affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (until capped)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 80)
  3. #% increased Movement Speed (at least 25%)

Belt

A well-rolled rare Stygian Vise Stygian Vise is a great Belt choice. The rare affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (until capped)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 80)
  3. #% increased Elemental Damage (Prismatic Fossil Prismatic Fossil)

Amulet

A well rolled rare Amulet should be used. The rare affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (until capped)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 50)
  3. #% increased Spell Damage
  4. +# to Dexterity

Rings

Well rolled rare Rings are best in slot; preferably you would want to use Opal Ring Opal Ring. The rare affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (until capped)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 60)
  3. +# to Dexterity

Weapon

You can use your Detonate Dead Detonate Dead in Nycta's Lantern Nycta's Lantern, which can carry you even up to red maps. For the endgame, you have the option to either use a one-hand and Shield or a Staff; in both cases we are looking for additional levels to our Detonate Dead. The rare affix priority is:

  1. # to Level of all Fire Spell Skill Gems
  2. # to Level of all Spell Skill Gems
  3. #% increased Spell Damage
  4. #% increased Fire Damage

Shield

A well-rolled Shield is best in slot. The rare affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 80)
  3. # to Level of all Fire Spell Skill Gems
  4. #% increased Spell Damage (at least 40%)

Flasks

Atziri's Promise Atziri's Promise will provide a lot of damage to the build. The usual instant or half-instant Divine Life Flask Divine Life Flask flask should be used, and ideally you would want to roll it with Bleeding removal (Staunching). The Wise Oak The Wise Oak will allow you to penetrate more Fire resistance. Other utility flasks can be used based on personal preference; we recommend having Basalt Flask Basalt Flask + Granite Flask Granite Flask for additional defense and a Quicksilver Flask Quicksilver Flask for the additional mobility. You should have Curse and Freeze immunity rolled on your utility flasks.

Be sure to check out our Flask Crafting Guide to learn everything you need to know about how to set up your non-Unique flasks.

Jewels

There are no specific jewels that are required for the build. You should mainly focus on regular rare Jewels with Life and damage.

Regular Jewel Affix Priority

  1. #% increased maximum Life
  2. #% increased Fire Damage
  3. #% increased Spell Damage
  4. #% increased Area Damage

Abyssal Jewel Affix Priority

  1. +# to maximum Life
  2. #% chance to gain Onslaught for 4 seconds on Kill
  3. Adds # to # Fire Damage to Spells

    What’s the purpose of the minion bonuses? Do the summoned corpses count as minions?
