Gems Setup

Early Leveling Skills

Lightning Strike 3L: (V) Lightning Strike - Ancestral Call - Lifetap

Lightning Strike 4L: (V) Lightning Strike - Ancestral Call - Fortify - Lifetap then Trinity (Make sure Trinity is building max resonance, but it should be with Anger and Herald of Ice on)

Switch out of Lifetap when you have an enduring mana flask or the mana leech claw node (Soul Raker).


6L: Vaal Lightning Strike - Trinity - (A) Elemental Damage with Attacks - Nightblade - (A) Added Lightning Damage - Ancestral Call until you've gotten +1 Strike, then Inspiration

4L: Enlighten - Anger - Precision - Herald of Ice

4L: Static Strike - Rage - Cast on Critical Strike - Wave of Conviction If you have a Farrul's. Sub Frenzy - Power Charge on Critical in place of CoCS and WoC until then. Or, choose your favorite form of getting Frenzy and Power Charges.

3L: Ancestral Protector - Blind - Culling Strike

2L: CWDT - Steelskin

Others to Slot where/if you can: Enduring Cry for HC Only, Smoke Mine, Phase Run, Defiance banner

Conductivity until you get a Shaper Ring with Assassin's Mark on Hit (Early on, pair it with OoS, Hextouch, and PCoCS for auto-curse and charge generation with one cast)

If you have a Farrul's and want 100% charge uptime, put Less Duration on item with Aspect of the Cat.
