Intro & build description
If you want to clear maps fast and have millions of DPS with less than 10 Ex investment, this is the build for you. This Fire Elemental hit version takes advantage of Avatar of Fire, Call of The Brotherhood and Frostferno damage conversion to scale the build to amazing damage with relatively small currency investment.
- Fast clear thanks to the Deadeye ascendancy
- Can clear maps on budget, with most build uniques costing no more than a few Chaos Orbs
- Good boss killer
- Scales extremely well with currency invested
- Reflect is a problem

One of the best, if not the best helms for Elemental Hit builds. It gives us pseudo 6-link for the single target Elemental Hit setup. This helm can also be double-corrupted for a chance to get +8 to socketed gem levels.
Body ArmourRare Body Armour / Loreweave / Kintsugi
Build has several choices to go for in body armour department. You could start with the Tabula Rasa, transition into rare 6-linked body armour later on or choose some of the unique options.
Good balanced option would be Loreweave, being all-around great chest for the build.
More defensive option would be Kintsugi, which synergizes well with Deadeye ascendancy.
Offensive choice would be Farrul’s Fur.
GlovesRare Gripped Gloves
Look for rare Gripped gloves with high life and resistances. Attack speed is a nice bonus.
Look for rare boots with 30% increased movement speed, as high life as possible and some resistance.
Left RingCall of The Brotherhood
We use this ring mainly for damage conversion. Get it as soon as you start using Xoph’s Blood. Until then, just use rare ring with life, elemental damage with attacks and resistances.
Right RingRare Ring
Look for rare ring with at least 60 life, resistances and %increased elemental damage with attack skills.
Excellent amulet for the build – it saves us tons of skill points because we don’t have to path to Avatar of Fire on the skill tree, while also providing maximum life, fire penetration and other useful mods.
Look for rare Stygian Vise with 80+ life, resistances and %increased elemental damage with attack skills.
QuiverRare Penetrating Arrow Quiver
Look for rare quiver with 1 good fractured mod, for example, high life, %increased elemental damage with attacks skills or global critical strike multiplier.
Then, use Deafening Essence of Misery to craft it – after you hit 3 good mods, bench craft something you need and the quiver is ready.
2Hand WeaponQuill Rain
Quill Rain is the weapon of choice for the build due to its fast attack speed. You can use it as soon as you want, because damage comes from links in the body armor and helmet.
Build uses following unique jewels:
– Lioneye’s Fall
– Poacher’s Aim
– 2x Combat Focus
Refer to Path of Building to see where to socket them.
Build also uses 1 large and 2 medium cluster jewels.
Good notables to look for would be elemental damage ones, like Cremator or Widespread destruction, or projectile ones like Streamlined and Repeater.
Fill out the rest of jewel sockets with regular rare jewels with following mods:
1.) Critical strike multiplier with fire skills
2.) Global critical strike multiplier
3.) Increased maximum life
4.) Attributes / Resistances if you need those
Build uses following flasks:
1.) Dying Sun
2.) Quicksilver Flask of Adrenaline
3.) Divine life Flask with bleed removal
4.) Quartz Flask with freeze removal
5.) Diamond Flask with curse removal
