With few changes, you can reduce your defense and increase your damage.
You need to start as Flame Totem and Shockwave totem up to Level 68.
Must use your Jewels to cap your Resis
Items I'm using in LVL 70 (Chest cost me 38c, others costs less than 10C)
Level up guide:
1 - Level up yourself until LVL 4. Then, look for:
a) 3 link item: Red - Blue- Green
b) Use Flame Totem + Added Light + Added Light
c) Fire trap + Added Light + Added Light
This is your tree:
When you can, buy a weapon with +40 Spell damage + a shield with +30 spell damage. They will stay with you until LVL 68. I did act 10 with this weapon:
Then, go to Blood Magic:
Buy two Worm Ring. Use the with Hatred and Herald of Fire to buff your Shock Wave totem:
This items will makie your level very easy:
WHen you hit LVL 68, this will be your tree:
At this point, your damage is low. But now it's time to Respect to you new tree:
Now you have Damage and armour. And can use you Dark Pact gem.
Tips & Advices:
Buy a LVL 19 Dark Pact when you get LVL 68. This will boost your damage.
DOn't use your orbs. Buy yours itens at poe.trade
Don't use Spell Echo until you damage is very high, so you can leech more than you sacrifice.
Spell echo will be you 6th link.
Run Blasphemy + Warlord + life leech gem - you probably can leech all life you need at LVL 68.
And you can Face Tank all boss from T4 at LVL 68.

I tryed a build with damage and armour.
a) Armour is USELESS...
Yes, i did a T10 with +90 damage and +90% shock damage
Ihave 79% elem. resist, 55K armour... and with mobs can do 60% of my life in damage.
Blu can do 75%
Rares can kill me if i do a mistake
b) Life is more important than everything.
c) If you can leech like a berserker, you need: HUGE HP + HUGE DAMAGE
Nothing is more important than a lot of life.
He can face tank anything, WITHOUT BODY ARMOUR, With a 4L ... Because he has only life on tree... and is a beserker...
Why invest on armour?
Use 2 ring to make your armour bigger?

He has 5 endurance charges, that's 20% phys reduction, and block, and still has armour.
