I have recently got back into the PoE series and I am very interested in playing through abusing spellbinding items and rogue. I have opted to take items skills like arms bearer, quick switch, and deep pockets to facilitate this build.

I am wondering if anyone has the game savvy to direct me to some good early spellbinding items that could work (any in Defiance Bay/act 2?).

Any advice would be much appreciated!

Angio's Gamberson - Dyrford - Winfirth - Alacrity of Motion

Ring of Searing Flame - Raedric Hold Cell Day 2 - Combusting Wounds

Rothfinger Gloves - Ondra's Gift - Cartugo - Touch of Rot (pretty strong against everything that is not immune to corrode or vessel)

RG is most likely always bought // used when you play solo, because it kills quickly every human encounter.

For Rogue, the best Weapon is always We Toki, just because 99% of the enemies are not immune to prone and because you crit most likely, they get permaproned and just die.

Check out this list in the wiki:


It has all spell enchantments and more spell effects.
Most useful for (Wannabe-Wizard Rogues with AoE spells) are in my opinion (the green ones come fairly early or can get rushed, the orange ones mid game) :

  • Tlauntain's Staff (3 Fireball, Act 3)
  • The Flames of Fair Rhian (3 Fireball, Endless Paths lvl 11, need to siphon knowledge from Maerwald's soul first)
  • White Crest Armor (1 Dancing Bolts, 1 Overwhelming Wave, WM)
  • Belt of the Royal Deadfire Cannoneer (1 Torrent of Flame, Act 1)
  • The White Spire (3 Blizzards, mid Act 2)
  • Ring of Searing Flames (3 Combusting Wounds, random loot)
  • Animancer's Boots (3 Jolting Touch, end of Act 2)
  • Sun-Touched Mail of Hyran Rath (3 Sunbeams, beginning of Act 2)
  • Amulet of Summer Solstice (3 Sunbeams, mid Act 2)
  • Rotfinger Gloves (3 Touch of Rot, 3 Spreading Plague, beginning of Act 2)
  • Bittercut (3 Vile Thorns, 1 Infestation of Maggots, WM)

Those all (except Combusting Wounds and Maggots) work with Deathblows. There are many more and I would swap items out if their per-rest uses are depleted (until nex rest). That way you can build up a pretty good arsenal of spells. You can duplicate an item with the Helwax Mold (for example Flames of Fair Rhian and then dual wield it for 6 Fireballs per rest). White Crest Armor + White Spire looks very nice together. 

Also check out Spell Striking and Spellchance items on that wiki site. For example Azureith's Stiletto (Act 1) and Bleak Fang (Act 3).

Finished a playthrough of something else recently and wanted to give this a shot. Started an Aumaua with quick switch 12/10/16/16/16/10 might/dex/con/per/int/res. Gonna amass every last spellbinding item I can and greedily hoard them and blast enemies with them. Tossing enough points into lore to cast a few scrolls too.

Should be fun!

I'm actually questioning right now whether I even should put weapon focus into anything since I'll be carrying like four different weapons and relying mostly on spellbindings. I'd guess I will melee (or ranged attack) sometimes, but should eventually have enough spellbinding items and scrolls to mostly just do that on many encounters. Rogues have high natural accuracy anyways and I have high perception so maybe I don't even need weapon focus?

I figure for most encounters I'm casting spells and maybe occasionally flanking around and hitting the backline once I'm done casting. Or I could just cast spells and then switch to a ranged weapon if I ran out or didn't feel the need to cast I guess.
