  • Resistances Cap: Fire, cold, lightning resistances must always be at 75%. Utilize jewelry slots to strengthen these stats as much as possible.

  • Four Links Minimum: As soon as you hit Act 3, try to have your primary skill within a four-link setup at least.
  • Damage Auras: If boosting damage output is what you’re after then go ahead and use auras like Hatred or Wrath even if that means some mana reservation will be lost..
  • Path of Building Consultation: Utilize this helpful tool to ferret out which nodes will give you the most bang for your buck!


What to do after beating the story?

You've already killed all gods and monsters in your path, so what comes next? The endgame waits, promising character upgrades for those that seek them. If you're not a fan of optimizing characters, then PoE might not be your game. But if you are like us, here's what you need to know:

  • Step 1: Import your character.
  • Step 2: Settings tweaks under the "configuration" tab.

Pay attention to two important stats: Combined DPS (damage per second) for Offense and Effective hit pool for defense. Keep in mind these aren't gospel, but they'll give you a good start.


How to trade?

Trading is vital for expensive gear acquisition — visit and get ready to hunt!

PoE Trading

  • Weapons: Pick weapon type and set physical DPS minimum. Set chaos orb limits so you don't break the bank.
  • Armor: Movement speed on boots is important; balance it with life and resistances. For body armor, six links are best ‚— filter base types with colors you need.

Pro tip: Use "~" key for smart searches and sort by highest value for good deals.


Build Comparisons Using POE.NINJA
