- At least 30 Dexterity

- At least 50 Life



- You need one Unset Ring for this build.

- With this Unset Ring, you will be able to have Steelskin.


Mandatory Uniques

Cold Iron Point

- Two Cold Iron Point daggers are the best weapons for this build. They grant "+3 to Level of all Physical Spell Skill Gems". This grants a big load of damage to our Exsanguinate.

- This dagger might be a little expensive during the first few days of a new league. You can use two Heartbreakers as a replacement while waiting for the price to drop.


The Primordial Chain

- In this build, we are also abusing Elementalist's golem nodes.

- We need a lot of golems for it to work properly.

- This amulet grants "+3 to maximum number of golems".

- With this amulet, you will have seven golems, which grant:

369% increased damage

24% reduced physical damage taken

861 life regenerated per second

55% increased cast speed

- If, besides the Primordial Chain, you have one Anima Stone + two Primordial Eminence, you will have nine golems and:

459% increased damage

28% reduced physical damage taken

1000 life regenerated per second

64% increased cast speed

- Unfortunately, this amulet is also kind of expensive during the first few days of a new league. In that case, you can just use a generic amulet with life and resistances while waiting for the price to drop.

- Without this amulet, you will have four golems and:

234% increased damage

18% reduced physical damage taken

653 life regenerated per second

42% increased cast speed
