  3. Get redeemer chest with frenzy charge on hit and no other redeemer mods.
  4. Use awakeners orb on redeemer chest into the Crusader chest

  4. Craft a prefix and hunter’s exalted for a suffix
  5. Remove the craft mod, make sure all the suffixes are filled and use aug chaos ( its a 50/50 for desecrated ground or +2 to chaos gems)  we want the ground mod.  If you don’t hit it, you have to use chaos to chaos until you get it.

Assassin’s mark

  1. Buy ilvl 85 Shaper Vermillion
  2. Alterations Assassins mark or use Harvest caster reforges
  3. I am going to assume you have only assassins mark lvl 12
  4. Craft fire damage to attacks and aug fire.
  5. Craft any suffix and Aug life.   Remove life add life as needed til desired life
  6. Aug Caster for any of the caster mods, life gained on hit is the best alternatively if you want to ensure this you can remove your craft and aug chaos then craft physical damage leeched as life and aug life.

  7. Remove add resistances til desired number.

 
Gloves
 
There are 2 setups for gloves one with a curse and one with 50% conversion.  The 50% conversion gloves are used with the assassins mark setup and has 2 variants.  A temple mod + crusader variant or a synthesis implicit + crafted variant.  
 
Crusader gloves
Buy ilvl 71-74 Temple gloves with physical damage converted to cold with decent life.  Make sure the item has an open prefix and no open suffix and use crusader orb.  If you get anything else other than cold conversion throw them away and start over, you cannot fix these with harvest anymore.
 
Other Gloves
Crafting these are straight forward, 80+ life and res phys converted to cold craft.   You can also horror 3.5 crit with 80 life and then fix resistance for an extra link on a wave of conviction.
 
Synth Implicit for 25%, these are also available for about 15-20 ex.
 
Cold cluster
These are too hard to craft now due to the removal of the tags on vengeful.  I’d suggest buying a base and double aug life for doryani’s.
