7 Guides for a Berserker Build in Path of Exile
Hello! Welcome to my build guide for a Berserker build I've been playing recently in the new Abyss league. The build focuses around the new unique, Poet's Pen, together with the Unearth and Volatile dead skills. Note that the Poet's Pen is a wand, an item which has relatively little attack support in the tree, and that the Pen itself is a significantly weaker weapon than Cospri's Malice. Note also that Malice can be dual-wielded and do the same thing as Poet's Pen. Note, for a third time, that 3L spells are generally not the strongest things in Creation.
1) For Your Helmet
Go with the one you can get the enchant on. The enchant pretty much doubles our damage output. If you can't get the enchant, then go for either a rare helmet with life/resists or a Starkonja.
Kaom's Heart is our go-to chest. An insane amount of flat life on top of fire damage, what's not to love?
2) For the Gloves Oskarm are Good on a Budget
You'll want to eventually obtain a pair of Atziri's Acuities and try to get a Shaper rare ring with the affix "Enemies are cursed by level x Assassin's Mark on hit" to replace Oskarm. Until here, Oskarm are great.
3) For Boots you Will Just Want a Rare Pair with Resists,
Movement speed and life. Try to get the Uber labyrinth enchantment that gives 10% elemental pen since it's amazing against bosses. You can also try to purchase or craft a pair of rare Shaper boots in order to get the cooldown reduction to increase the amount of triggers you can get off per second.
Rare amulet with Critical strike chance, life, critical strike multiplier and whatever else you might be missing. Unique amulets such as Impresence or Xoph's Heart are good alternatives if you can fit one in.
4) For Your Rings
You will want to get one that has the Shaper affix "Enemies are cursed by level x Assassin's Mark on hit" or a rare Opal ring. If you're on a budget, Diamond rings will work perfectly fine.
5) For Your Belt Slot
A rare Abyssal belt will be the best choice on a budget. Try to get Life/Resists/Strength. The optimal belt however would probably be a rare Shaper Leather belt with cooldown reduction affix on it.
6) For Your Jewels
You will want to have 5 rare jewels with Life + Increased damage. The 5th jewel you would ideally want the unique jewel the Watcher's Eye with the affix "Damage Penetrates (10-15%) of Fire Resistance while affected by Anger". This jewel is a significant damage increase.
7) For your Flasks you Will Want a Magic Diamond Flask
The Wise Oak(make sure Fire Resistance is your highest res!) and an Atziri's Promise. The rest of the flasks is up to you to decide what you want and need.
