Gem Links

4.Aura Setup 1

Besides your Amulet needing a Reduced Mana Reserved roll for Pride, you’re also going to need a bunch of Enlighten Supports of which one needs to be level 4. If you cannot acquire these, you will have to lower the level of Precision until you have them so you can reserve everything.

5.Aura Setup 2

These go in your 5-Linked Weapon. In case you have a 6th socket, Blood Rage can be socketed here. Blood Rage does not need to be linked to the other 5 Gems in here.

  • Blood and Sand
    • Blood and Sand reserves mana to activate Blood or Sand Stance. In Sand Stance, you have more area of effect, but less area damage. In Blood Stance, you have more area damage, but less area of effect. Activating the skill while it’s toggled on will alternate between stances.

We need a lot of poe currency when we build, but it takes a lot of time to get poe currency in the game, so we can buy poe currency online.
