High-Life & Resistance Hunter

Before We Start

If you aren't familiar with the Crafting Methods below, be sure to check out our resources before you start:

Crafting Process


Buy an ilvl 84+ Hunter Stygian Vise off of trade or make one yourself with a Hunter's Exalted Orb.

Scour the belt and use 4 Fertile Catalysts before moving on. This will save you money later.

Trade Link


Use Pristine Fossils until (7-10)% increased maximum Life (Tier 1) and Tier 2+ +# to maximum Life. This is a 1/46 chance. Your third Prefix doesn't matter.

Optional: if you have an open Prefix and Suffix, you can craft Prefixes Cannot be Changed and reforge Chaos for a 50% chance at #% increased Chaos Damage.


With an open Suffix, craft Prefixes Cannot be Changed.

If there is no room for the Metamod, use an Orb of Annulment for an attempt at opening up a Suffix. If you remove one of the important Prefixes, return to step 2.


Use a Veiled Chaos Orb to add a Veiled Modifier. If this fills up your Suffixes, you can stop here after Unveiling or try to open a Suffix with an Orb of Annulment.


Benchcraft +(10-15) to Strength and Dexterity before Unveiling with Jun.

If an Attribute is a desired Unveil, you can Benchcraft (6-8)% increased Cooldown Recovery Rate instead.


Choose one of these Unveils:

  • +(16-20)% to Cold and Chaos Resistances
  • +(16-20)% to Fire and Chaos Resistances
  • +(16-20)% to Lightning and Chaos Resistances
  • Attributes (if you didn't block them)

If you still have 2 open Suffixes, Benchcraft +(15-20) to Strength and use an Exalted Orb for a chance at another useful mod.

Anything useful is great but it's not worth it to remake your Suffixes if you Exalt Slam something bad (unless your Prefixes are all Tier 1).


Finish with a Benchcrafted modifier, such as Resistances (i.e. +(17-20)% to Fire and Lightning Resistances).

Anything useful is great but it's not worth it to remake your Suffixes if you slam something bad unless your Prefixes are triple Tier 1.
