No you do not have to use Loreweave, it's just a personal favorite because you get free Int, Ele Damage, max Res and Flat DMG, it's easy to Color and overall a great solution.
Other Viable Chests would be Belly of the Beast,Bronns Lithe, Daressos or a Rare Chest with High Life/Resistance.

For the Helmet, Devoto's is the best option here, but a Rare Helmet with High Life/Res is a decent replacement, same goes for Gloves, Tombfist is great (the most aggresive option) but if you're struggling with Res and Life, get a Rare Pair with Life/Res/Attackspeed/Phys/Fire Damage.

The Best Boots Option would be Darkray Vectors corrupted with +1 Frenzy Charges, but if you can get your hands on Boots with High Life/Res and a good Lab enchant like Attackspeed or Leech thats fine too.

For Rings, High Life/Resistance and if possible high Elemental Damage, Flat Physical/Fire Damage.

Belt, Stygian Base would be best for the free Socket, but a Leather Belt with Life/Res/Elemental Damage is a great option aswell.

Currently playing around with The Retch and double corrupted Cyclopean Coil.

Flasks
Spoiler


Dying Sun is luxury for Endgame but a insane Dmg Boost thanks to the +2 Projectiles and Cyclone feels smoother due to the increased Aoe, replacement for Dying Sun would be a Flask like this.

Wise Oak is necessary and can't be replaced, the penetration is key, make sure your fire resistance is highest!


Int/Mana Problems? + Jewels
Spoiler




Put your Fertile Mind here
Spoiler


A Jewel with % Blind on Hit is a Huge QoL Upgrade for Endgame Bosses

Spoiler


For the Mana issue I went with a +2 Mana on Hit Jewel

If you have the currency and want to get the most out of your gear you can invest into Gloves with Ele Weakness on Hit, then you can drop your Blasphemy setup and Run Herald of Ash + Anger.
Spoiler



Leveling

Spoiler

I would not recommend going Cyclone early unless you skill to Mana Leech and got the +2 Mana to Attack Jewel, get Life Nodes first in the Tree then go towards Resolute Technique, followed up by all the Damage/Frenzy Charge Nodes.

Molten Strike/Cleave if you want to go Melee or Split Arrow for Range Leveling, at lv 28 feel Free to take Cyclone. (do not run Blasphemy or Anger) only Herald of Ash or you will have Mana problems regardless if you have the Jewel/Leech Node.

List of good level Uniques (uncompleted)
Spoiler




For Mapping, you can do any Mod besides Ele Reflect, if you're looking for a pure Bosskiller this Build is not for you, theres cheaper and faster Builds out there, what you get with this Build is a incredible fast Mapping Build with decent Bossfarming, Jack of all trades, master of none.. well besides Mapping.

Feel free to ask any Questions.

It's sort of viable, if you're not planing on doing t15-16 with it without the amulet, you can spend 8 skillpoints to avatar of fire though.

and yeah, I played the build in breach too was amazing and went for it again, made a bunch of updates and changes and it's working great.

personal preference imo, at the moment im using Soul of Lunaris (fully upgraded) and Soul of Garukhan, sometimes I swap depending on Mods and Maps but usually thats my go to choice.

For the gems, no i haven't tried it, i'll give it a shot in pob later and run some numbers, but it shouldn't make a whole alot of differnce, i've tested dmg on full life, numbers go up alot but boss dmg is lacking, and for mapping my current setup runs very well, you oneshot every trash group and bosses are smooth aswell.

too be honest, since we are on softcore you can skip some jew sockets/life nodes for the beginning, you shouldn't skip acrobatics, but you can skip the points for phase acrobatics.

glad you're having fun with it :)
