The crux of this build is, obviously, the Helltooth set. You'll need the six-piece set bonus in order to benefit from the huge damage boost you'll get after casting Wall of Death. The only other required gear for this build is Scrimshaw, which makes Zombie Bears a viable skill by reducing its mana cost and increasing its damage.

The other gear pieces are what make this build even better and capable of completing Greater Rifts in the 60s. The Focus and Restraint rings give you a huge damage boost, Jeram's Bracers make Wall of Death a significant damage source for you, and The Thing of the Deep expands your pickup radius which, thanks to the Swampland Attunement passive, results in a massive toughness boost whenever enemies are on-screen. The Hellfire Amulet is your best-in-slot amulet, but any amulet will suffice. As for the Belt of Transcendence, this item is selected simply because there is no alternative that is better, but any belt can work.

The items you want to cube include The Furnace in order to take down guardians and elites quicker; the convention of elements for elemental damage buffs; and the Grin Reaper in order to spawn clones that will cast your spells alongside you, making you even more effective.


Legendary Gems: Bane of the Trapped, because you will be hitting enemies near you and they will be under the influence of this gem's level 25 effect; Molten Wildebeest's Gizzard and Esoteric Alteration for the extra survivability.
