Gear

Helm: Alpha Howl's

Chest: Sacrificial Garb

Weapon: Soul Taker or High physical weapon (will require mana leech and mana regen)

Shield: Aegis Aurora

Gloves: 16% IAS + physical damage + life + life leech or mana leech

Amulet: Sone of Lazhwar (spell block or block)

Boot: rainbowstride conjurer boots

Belt: Rustic stash + life + 3 resistance or 2 resistance and Armour

Rings: Physical damage + life + resistances + ES + Int (important to run Disc)

Guide

Key Points:
1) ~10k armour, since Aegis replenishes more ES with more armour

2) High Block/spell block (cap is 75). You dont need to max this

3) As much Life + ES. One can sacrifice some Life nodes for more dps or armour nodes.

4) Soul Taker for spamming ability. Alternative would be +400 physical dps weapon. Would need to sacrifice some life nodes for mana regen nodes near Duelist tree as well as replace faster attack with a mana leech.

5) You will want to max Resistances. PoF/L comes in handy. You will want + 81% resistance w/o flask

Atziri Fight

a) Vaal:
Gems remain the same and you will want to have a sapphire flask as well as a topaz flask. I lower one vaals to as low as possible w/o killing. Then i swap over to the other vaal and kill him and then return to the other vaal. This will avoid them going enrage

b) Trio
The notorious trio. I swap out melee damage on full life for a life leech gem.You will only need PoF + grace + hatred + Disc. I first focus on killing the cyclone champ. He will spawn upper right corner area. Avoid his CB after he spins. You will need two life flask with bleed. You can pretty much tank and spank him. Then I go after the female who is always in the center of the room.

c) Atziri(dont forget to remove enfeeble)
you will need PoF + PoL +hatred + disc, 2 or 3 ruby flask.

a) 1st form:
you can tank the smaller flameblast as well as 1 or 2 storm call. the large flameblast you will want to avoid

b)2nd form:
Swap out melee dmg on full life for melee splash. During this form focus on attacking atziri and the splash should kill the minions b4 they heal him. You will need ~18k dps

c)3rd form:
Focus on the spear champ; she deals bleed dmg

Maps
High lvl maps arent an issue. You can run double reflect w/o any problems.
