[3.15] Storm Brand Build (League Starter) | Hierophant | Expedition | Path of Exile 3.15

Hey guys, this is a possible starter build for next league. We don't know anything about next league and patch notes are not up yet but I wanted to share a starter build and here it is. Mana stacking might get nerfed or not we'll wait and see. You can use this build as league starter and finisher. I managed to kill maven with this budget gear.
