For Crafting please check https://www.craftofexile.com/. It was not so expensive, except the large Cluster Jewel can be hard, I actually had to use Harvest Life Augment to get Doryani's Lesson on it.



Feel free to use the leveling trees. Those may or may not require you to use refund points (either of Orbs of Regret or quests).

Gear wise it is up to you, what you have and the same with the skills to level. However, since you can use Blade Vortex with Level 12, you should switch to it as soon as you can get it (Merveil) or at least in Act 2, after you get the Heralds.

Recommended Leveling Gear:

  • Tabula Rasa, Honourhome, Worm's Molt, Wanderlust
  • Rings with Resistances and Attributes
  • Amulet for Attributes (Onyx, Jade, Turquiose BiS)
  • Axiom Perpetuum or +1 Phys Gems Wands/Sceptres (Note: You can't use Wands and Sceptres together)

I recommend to add Physical to Lightning with level 18 or as soon as you can get it.

If you have you can add Unnatural Instinct very early to have even stronger Heralds early. This may also enables the 4th Herald earlier.

Once you are in Act 2 and you freed Helena, use Honourhome Helmet with +2 Level of socketed Gems and Enlighten Level 2. This enables you to use 3 Heralds and have enough spare mana left.

In Act 2 you will get Trinity Support. Use it instead of Elemental Penetration if you don't have one.

Use Increased Duration after Library until you can get Unleash in Act 4 (Level 38).

With Level 45 you can use Enlighten Level 3. If you want you can stick with Honourhome or switch it to Goldrim or another helmet for life/Attributes/resis.With 62 dual wield Singularity if you don't have anything better.

With Level 64 you can equip Replica Alpha's Howl (Huuuge Damage Boost). You want the Uber Lab Enchant Blade Vortex Duration or Area of Effect for smoother Mapping. If you want more Damage you want Crit Multiplier per Blade instead.

With Level 68 Equip Inpulsa's Broken Heart. Please watch the video guide.
