Unique items related to low life:

Both these items are extremely convenient for low life energy shield builds because they prevent chaos damage from bypassing energy shield. They are not, however, necessary for such a build if the character has sufficiently high chaos resistance and other defences.

Trivia

Since version 0.9.6, the player light changes to noticeably reddish over the 33% - 37% range to make it easier to judge when the condition applies.
