Right Ring

Two-Stone Ring

Get anything on the ring that you’re lacking, either resstances or stats. Cast speed is nice on the ring too.


Body Armour

Vaal Regalia

Stat priority:
1) Energy Shield
2) Resistances

Note:

6-linked Vaal Regalia is your ultimate endgame goal, look for at least 600-700 ES

Infernal Mantle works too, it has solid 500 ES and is usually very cheap



Hit once, hit hard. DO NOT SPAM flameblast. Build is made to utilize Beacon of Ruin, built-in proliferation mechanic.  Move from pack to pack, cast once, everything dies. Cast Orb of Storms occasionally to proc Elemental Overload. Orb of Storms linked to Curse on Hit support gem applies Elemental Weakness and Flammability will melt anything in your path + it procs Elemental Equilibrium

  1. Could you clear Up what would be stat priority for this build in jewel wise?

    Also which flask are important to this build and can you also explain if the 3 points into flask recovery and effect are necessary?

    • gems

      You could go for increased fire damage, spell damage, %increased energy shield. Priority isn’t carved in stone – get what you are lacking, be it damage, energy shield, resists or attributes.
      Flask recovery and effect is really underrated, it’s definitely worth it.

  2. Hey, you have the offhand listed, but nothing for the main hand slot?

  3. Also no mention of which Jewels to put in the 5 slots?

  4. FLAMEBLASTERINOPEPERINO

    For weapon the BIS is Doryanis catalyst (Atziri sceptre) Since it double dips on your ignite damage. It also gives leech and cast speed which are both amazing
