Most items are mandatory, but there are some choices you can make. I talk over some of the scenarios below.


Rings: This is more in regards to the Cube, where we have Convention of Elements. If you want to add more Toughness to the build, you can change this to an Elusive Ring. You will lose a significant amount of damage as a tradeoff.


Weapons & Quivers: Right now, there is a weird interaction with the 4-piece power of the set and Valla's Bequest. It would seem that the projectiles from Strafe being able to pierce allows them to further proc the 4-piece set bonus and allows for more Hungering Arrows to come out in particularly dense pulls, so it has the potential increase your damage quite significantly. If this gets patched or bug fixed, if it's actually a bug and not intended, then you have several options. One alternate setup is to equip The Ninth Cirri Satchel and that opens up your Cube slot, so you can then Cube the newly improved Odyssey's End and play a dual generator version of the build with Entangling Shot. Another option is to simply swap Valla's Bequest for Fortress Ballista, which gives you more defense to play around with.


Legendary Gems: Bane of the Stricken and Simplicity Strength are staples of the build, but some versions run Taeguk instead of Bane of the Trapped. The advantage to this is giving up some offense in order to gain some defense. Cull the Weak also gets more difficult to reliably proc with Bane of the Trapped, but you can put a Thunderfury on your follower to help with providing additional slows.


Sockets: Flawless Royal Diamonds in helm, chest, and pants and Flawless Royal Emerald in weapons.
