Kill all the bandits in Normal Difficulty - Rewards 1 Passive Skill Point

Gear

The single most important Piece of gear is:
The Blood Dance boots.

The next 2 Nice to haves would be Either of these 2 Claws:

Or
Bloodseeker

After that you are looking for High ES Gear with Crit Chance and Crit Damage as well as Resists and Armor.

Guide

This build is going for an ES build that can do as fast of attacks as possible. With the leaching from claws and the gems piling on the Phys damage this should keep your ES full as you spam across the screen.
