The written portion of this build guide is designed for new players who feel like they need some hand holding. As such some things that veteran players and experienced racers might do in the early levels have been left out as to not be too complicated. That being said, this should still be a smooth and quick leveling experience.
This build is an incredible leage start, immune to all maps mods. High damage, decent clear, above-average survivability, and most importantly….. cheap as chips and runnable in SSF. Enjoy!

Gear, Flasks and Jewels
Like all good league starts, the gearing on this build is very simple. As much life as we can get while capping resistances. When possible stick to evasion bases as we scale dodge and evasion rather decently. Anything that CAN have chaos damage over time multiplier, should.
On these flasks, we will need to roll some affixes when we reach maps. It doesn’t matter which of the last three flasks has which affix, as long as all three affixes are covered.
-Staunching, for bleed
-Warding, for curses
-Heat, for freeze
This combination will mean you cannot bleed, be frozen, or be cursed while your flasks are active. This is very helpful and strong, especially with certain map modifiers.
*Note* The Quicksilver Flask could also have any of these suffixes initially if you are okay moving through maps a little more slowly. This is just the ideal setup; what’s really important is you have the Enduring mana, Staunching, Heat, and Warding on utility flasks by the time you enter maps – in that order
