Movement Speed(possibly)
By reaching maps your setup should look like this
This setup with 4-Link would allow you to farm T1-T5 rare maps
you can find the detailed leveling guide
Gear progression
Life Flask
Divine Life Flask
Granite Flask
granite flask
Quicksilver Flask (movement speed)
There are 2 Movement Speed flasks which are good for us :
quicksilver flask
Quicksilver flask
Silver Flask with Freeze Immune
Immunity to Freeze and Chill during Flask Effect
Jade Flask
I would not recommend to roll it with alts, better to buy it
Jade Flask with reduced curse effect
Quartz flask
mana leech dex jewel
*Items and colored Text contain promts on hover and links on click
Flask setup
Life Flask with instant life recovery and bleed immunity
Would recommend to buy second Life Flask for this purpose
Take Profane Bloom
Here you can find current UberLab scheme
Helmet enchant : 'Despair has increased Curse effect / Poison Multi while infecting'
Uber Lab info :
Pantheon : Soul of Lunaris + Soul of Shakari
Soul of Lunaris : Put the Moon Temple Map and Divine Vessel into the Map Device and run the map. Right Click on the vessel to unlock the bonus
Repeat with Forbidden Woods Map for the next Tier
Repeat with Cold River Map for the next Tier
+1 to level of all chaos spell skill gems)
Soul of Yugul : Put the Grave Trough and Divine Vessel into the Map Device and run the map
Right Click on the vessel to unlock the bonus
Tabula / 5-6Link
Tabula Rasa Simple Robe
Base Jewels (x2)
Base jewel
If expensive - remove Brush with Death from the filter
6-link armour
Anointment - Toxic Strikes
dext amulet
large cluster jewel
Large Cluster Jewel
Greatly increases your dps. Should cost 1-5c day one of the league
Add Damage over Time on the bench (Prefix)
You should have ~50 str in summary on your gear, one good roll on a ring would be enough
Amber Amulet
DoT Multi + enchantment when you add poison
I would recommend to switch to Impending Doom when Uber Lab is completed
If you switched to Impending Doom, still have Uber Lab not completed and feel like clear speed isn't great - take Profane Bloom instead of Vile Bastion
carved wand
dext amulet
Chaos DoT Multi craft can be received from unveiling veiled items (Jun) and is a suffix

Replace DoT craft with DoT Multi when you get it

I would recommend to buy a wand which has both suffix and prefix open so you can craft DoT(prefix) and replace it with DoT Multi(suffix) when it is available
large cluster jewel
Medium Cluster Jewel
Buy a base. Use Life essence until you get any resistance and have an empty suffix. When your poison on hit chance is high enough - add a crafted mod 'increased duration of ailments while focused' . Despair effect enchantment might be expensive at league start, buy Poison Multi while Infecting if poor! (check the filter)
Apep's Rage
How it works :
You want to rewrite your curses to proc Impending Doom. One is being self cast (Temporal Chains)
The rest curses should be socketed into the gloves
Put Punishment in the first socket and then the curses you want to being applied, plus spell cascade. The Curse from the first socket won't be applied

Make sure to have this for 100% poison on hit chance :
If you do not have medium cluster with Septic Spells or Toxic Strikes Enchantment on an amulet yet - take 20% chance to poison Cursed enemies (Curse Mastery)
Vixen's Entrapment
You should keep in mind that Expedition Encounters may contain 'Immune to Curses' mod which makes mobs completely invulnerable to our damage. This mod is not being highlighted and can hardly be noticed while placing explosives (ty ggg). To solve this we equip any 4-6 link weapon in off hand and use Soulrend setup we had been using before
To figure out what maps you have to run to complete the pantheon - open atlas and enter it's name
Every league maps are different

You can use Soul of the Brine King for Freeze Immune if needed while you have no ele ailment avoidance
Rings and Amulet should have an empty prefix to craft minus manacost. You want at least 1 mod for 6-Link when switch to Impending Doom
You want Chaos DoT Multi / DoT Multi for dps, if you are missing stats/res - take them instead
You can buy a base and use Chaos Reforge in Harvest to make it cheaper
Roll until you get at least 2 decent notables
This setup would allow you to kill Exarch/Eater bosses and farm T16 maps
You can find complete red map viable setup with a couple additions below
Your further setups :
*All items have promts and links on hover/click
Medium setup explanations
Shaper's boots with cooldown recovery rate
The Balance of Terror
You want to buy the boots with CDR, no movement speed mod and an empty prefix to craft MS+Onslaught on kill
It is a veiled mod so use TFT if you are not a Syndicate Enjoyer
If expensive - reduce the life/res amount on the filter
Increased cooldown recovery rate if cast Temporal Chains
Searing Exarch / Eater of Worlds implicits :
You should have 95-100% Temp Chains cast speed (15% from gloves, double Unholy Grace 10%+10% for 46% CDR (Balance of Terror 24%, Belt 11%, Boots 11%) so increase cast speed slightly as you add CDR
Increased Despair curse effect (Searing Exarch)
Mana Reservation Efficiency (Eater)
Increased effect of non-curse auras from your skills (Searing Exarch)
Determination has increased aura effect (Eater)
Body Armour
+1 to level of all chaos gems from a shield doesn't work for Impending Doom. Get a better shield with more Life/Res/Stats
Curse Immunity for cheap
When obtained - get a Jade Flask with 'Increased evasion Rating during Effect'
Get a belt with double res and life, having an empty suffix for the bench craft
It is also a veiled mod
Belt with crafted cooldown recovery rate
Watcher's eye with Chance to suppress spell damage
When you reach red maps - remove Chaos and Life clusters on the left side of the tree and take two Suppression clusters. Take second Large Cluster as well
You can do it earlier if needed ( you would lose some dps to get tankier)
You can also get a Quartz Flask. With two clusters + Watcher + Flask you would have around 90-95% chance to suppress spell damage on full life while having no spell suppression on the helmet
The implicits ain't mandatory at all except for the Reservation efficiency one (the lowest tier is enough)
It would allow you to add Vitality
Take 100% increased Vitality efficiency mastery as well
To have a socket for Vitality - Remove Wither Totem setup and use Withering Step to inflict Wither or remove Shield Charge setup
Small cluster jewel with Enduring Composure
Endurance charge generation for 90% physical damage reduction
*All items have promts and links on hover/click
MediumSetup > Final Setup Item Order/Explanations
We use Skittering Runes as anointment
Required Oils :
Get a base with an enchant and fractured Life
Alts until 14% chance to suppress spell damage > Regal > Craft ' Increased Ailment Duration while focused' on the bench ( suffix ) > Exalt
You can buy a helmet with fractured spell suppression, should be expensive but faster (use Essence of Greed > bench craft)
Boots / Stormshroud / Abyss jewel for Elemental Ailment Immunity
If there is no such a belt on the market you can remove Strength from the filter
Crafting :
Get a shaper base > Alts until T1 CDR > Regal > Suffix cannot be changed > Reforge Fire to add fire res > Suffixes cannot be changed > Reforge Life to add life
(keep in mind you cannot guarantee a good life roll, if you got a bad one - repeat last step)
If you do not wanna risk - just craft life on the bench after adding fire res and exalt

If you have no STR on the belt - your cluster jewels / base jewel should contain it instead
(check the filters) or spend one passive tree point to get +30 str
Searing Exarch and Eater of Worlds implicits :
Increased Despair Curse Effect (Searing Exarch)
Increased Mana Reservation Efficiency (Eater of Worlds)
Get a fractured Amethyst Ring with T1 Resistance (Fire/Cold)
Use Reforge Lightning until Triple Res
Suffix cannot be changed > Life reforge > -7 manacost for non-channelling skills
There is no gaurantee to get a good life tier, and a small chance of getting life leech instead
If poor - add life on the bench and exalt
You want at least one minus manacost mod on your rings in summary
Brutal Restraint
The link alrdy contains required jewel slot
If there are no jewels with 3 nodes or you can't afford - buy a jewel with x2 nodes

How to use : 'Deselect > Choose required nodes > Search
Loreweave / Eternal Damnation
Those two makes us much tankier and should be obtained together
To get 3G-2R-1B use 'at least two green' craft / Vorichi
You don't have to 6-link right after purchasing, 3+3/4+2 is good to get started
Amulet might be expensive at league start, if so - remove min chaos res (check the filter)
There are 3 good mods you can have on it. It would cost you 10-20 div
You can start from a 2-mod Staff with a 10-50c price
When you swap double mod for triple mod - use old Staff in off hand
Crafting :
Get a shaper base with Elevated CDR,if poor - buy T1 instead (it must be the only influence mod on the item)
Get a base with an Enchant > use Crusader Orb and roll T1 chance to avoid being shocked (51-60)
Use Awakener's Orb (Shaper base > Crusader base)
If you have an empty suffix - Suffixes cannot be changed > Reforge Fire to add fire res > Suffixes cannot be changed > Veiled Chaos Orb until you get MS+Onslaught > craft life on the bench > exalt slam
(You have about 1/3 chance to get MS+Onslaught when unveil so if got MS+chill/MS+MS you can keep it and use Silver Flask)

Once you have Chance to avoid being shocked (51-60%) on the boots you can buy Stormshroud and Abyss jewel with another 49-40% to have Elemental Ailment Immunity
If you been using Soul of the Brine king - switch to Lunaris
Cane of Kulemak
Mana reservation efficiency
Once Loreweave is 6-linked - add Enlighten, when it is lvl 3 - add Anomalous Temporal Rift (+5% CDR)
Deselect > choose the Notables
Temporal Chains cast speed modifier should be ~110% under flask effect (130% with Onslaught) with 0.15 Vixen CD / 0.09 Doom Blast CD / 67% CDR (boots19% / belt 19% / Temporal Rift 5% / Balance of Terror 24%)
You should have 17% increased cast speed on Ruby/Silver Flask, 10% comes from Divergent Temp Chains
19% from well-rolled Vixen, ~8% from base jewel

Small changes : Double mod Balance of Terror / Double mod Watcher's eye
