[3.20] Righteous Fire / Fire Trap Inquisitor

Intro & build description

If you want a well-rounded build that works as a map farmer, can kill bosses, and doesn’t require an insane budget to start, this is the right choice for you. Not only is this build tanky and quick, but it can also kill uber bosses if you have the skills for it

Important note – please use Rolling Magma for leveling and only start using Righteous Fire when you can sustain its degen. This means getting life regen on recommended gear and speccing into regeneration nodes in the passive tree.

Build Pros

  • Tanky, due to high maximum resistances, max block, 90% physical damage reduction & ES recovery
  • Great for mapping
  • Can kill endgame bosses
  • Excellent as league starter

Build Cons

  • None that I can see

Rare Elder Helmet

This build works fine by using rare elder helmet with concentrated effect mod + around 80 maximum life and life regenerated per second mods.

At the very beginning, use helmet without the concentrated effect mod and focus on life and life regeneration mods.

In endgame though, in addition to aforementioned mods, your helm should have Socketed Gems deal #% more Elemental Damage” mod as well.

Body Armour

Rare Body Armour (Armor + ES base)

This build uses fairly simple rare body armour. Mods to look for are high life, life regeneration and if possible, %increased maximum life and mana.


Rare Gloves

On gloves, one mod that we definitely need is “% Increased life regeneration rate”. Combine that mod with high life and a resist or 2 and you have great gloves for the build.


Legacy of Fury

An amazing pair of boots for endgame – they really help with the clear and spreading your damage all over the map.

They will definitely be expensive at the league start, so until you can acquire them, rare boots with high life, 30% movement speed and resistances will work just fine.

Left Ring

Rare Ring

On Rings, we just go for high life, resistances and ideally, minimum frenzy or endurance charge mods.

If you have free space for mods, you can craft %increased damage on the rings.

Right Ring

Rare Ring

More or less same as the previously mentioned ring.


Rare Marble Amulet

Look for rare Marble Amulet with high life and damage over time multiplier mod.

Other notable mods to look for would be %increased fire damage, attributes or even resistances.

If you have currency for it, in the endgame, Ashes of The Stars is an excellent amulet for the build.


Rare Stygian Vise

For the belt slot, this build uses rare Stygian Vise with 80+ life and 100+ life regeneration per second. Any resistances in addition to these mods are good to have.

1Hand Weapon

Rare Sceptre

In the very endgame, our sceptre should have +1 to all spell skill gems, +1 to all fire spell skill gems and multicrafted fire damage multiplier.

Scepter like that will obviously cost a lot, so until then, you can simply use any scepter with %increased fire damage in combination with either +1 level to fire spell skill gems mod or fire damage over time multiplier mod.


Aegis Aurora

Aegis Aurora is our endgame shield, which gives us amazing level of survivability.

It’s quite expensive, so until you can afford it, use either Rise of The Phoenix or Dawnbreaker.



Endgame build uses 1 large and 2 medium cluster jewels

On Large cluster jewel look for:

1) Prismatic Heart
2) Widespread Destruction

On Medium cluster jewels look for:

1) Fan the Flames
2) Master of Fire


1) Flow of Life
2) Wrapped in Flame

In addition to cluster jewels, build uses regular jewels.

Mods to look on them are:

1) Increased maximum life
2) Damage over time multiplier / fire damage over time multiplier
3) Increased burning damage / damage over time / fire damage
4) Resistances / Attributes if you are lacking


Flask Setup

Build uses following flasks:

1) Quicksilver Flask
2) Quartz Flask
3) Basalt Flask
4) Granite Flask
5) Ruby Flask
