[3.3] Cheap and Tanky Oro’s Flicker Strike Marauder (Juggernaut)

Intro & build description

Flicker strike is known to be one of the fastest map clearing skills in the game and with this build we can do it on budget. The build is perfect as a league starter because it only needs Oro’s Sacrifice which is 1 Chaos item, and Fireborn jewel which can be a bit more expensive but still very affordable. With Oro’s Sacrifice we can sustain frenzy charges indefinitely thanks to many ignites we inflict on enemies, while being really tanky.

Build Pros

  • Cheap to start, but can be scaled really well with some more expensive unique items
  • Great as a league starter build
  • Can easily get over 7500 life

Build Cons

  • Elemental reflect is a no-go

Helmet

Rare Armour Helm

Look for helm with as high life and resistances as you can find.
Best enchantment for the helm would be – “40% increased Flicker Strike Damage.”


Body Armour

Kaom's Heart

Ideal chest armour for the build would be Kaom’s Heart. It gives us fire damage and huge life pool and since we don’t really need any more gem sockets, the downside doesn’t matter.

Until you can get Kaom’s, I suggest Belly of The Beast as it’s usually cheaper or a rare chest piece with life and resistances.


Gloves

Rare Armour + Energy Shield Gloves / Spiked Gloves

I’d suggest getting Armour and Energy shield hybrid gloves for easy socket coloring with high life and resistances. Attack speed or fire damage to attacks are great bonuses, so if your resitances are capped, you can explore these 2 options.


Boots

Kaom's Roots

Great boots for the build – lots of life and stun immunity is perfect for us. Since Flicker Strike doesn’t care much about movement speed, we don’t feel the downside.

Of course, you could go for rare boots with movement speed, life and resistances and use Leap Slam – Faster Attacks – Fortify setup for movement when there are no monsters, but I prefer Kaom’s Roots.


Left Ring

Unset Ring

Look for Unset Ring with as high life as you can find an at least 30% increased elemental damage with attack skills.
Use Vaal Haste in the ring’s socket as it’s very strong gem for our build.
Fire damage to attacks and resistanes are also great to have on rings.


Right Ring

Two-Stone Ring

Look for life, elemental damage with attacks and some resistances on the second ring if you haven’t capped them.


Amulet

Rare Amulet

Ideally look for Rare Amulet with high life, increased elemental damage with attack skills and fire damage to attacks.


Belt

Stygian Vise / Leather Belt

Look for Stygian Vise or Leather Belt with high life, elemental damage with attack skills and some resistances.

Belt of The Deceiver is also a decent option if you are looking for something cheaper.


2Hand Weapon

Oro's Sacrifice

Core item of the build. When searching for it on poe.trade, set maximum buyout price to 3c, search and then sort them by dps and buy the highest one.


Jewel

Fireborn

Use this jewel in a slot just left of the Golem’s Blood notable skill point.


Jewel

Jewel Setup

On jewels ideally look for:

1.) Maximum life
2.) Fire damage to attacks (Abyss Jewels only)
3.) Increased Damage if you have killed recently (Abyss Jewels only)
4.) Increased damage / attack speed / increased melee damage / increased fire damage
5.) Any resistances or attributes if you are lacking


Flask

Flask Setup

Get following flasks:

1.) Instant Life recovery flask with bleed removal
2.) Instant Life recovery flask with freeze removal
3.) Quicksilver Flask of adrenaline
4.) Basalt Flask / Atziri’s Promise
5.) The Wise Oak

Note: The Wise Oak will give you fire penetration if your fire resistances is the highet one.
Example – Fire resistance 75% (130%), Lightning resistance 75% (112%), Cold resistance 75% (120%).

  1. What is the leveling advice there for this build?

    • gems

      Sunder is good as a leveling skill. With Tabula and -to mana cost of skills jewelry you shouldn’t have any leveling issues.
