Intro & build description
Incinerate got reworked and buffed in patch 3.3 alongside some very strong ignite buffs. If you haven’t played incinerate yet, or, are nostalgic about good old incinerate glory days, take a look at what we have to offer in this build guide. Not only it has some ridiculous single target damage potential, it is very mobile, fast-paced build to map with.
- Insane damage potential
- Cheap to start with
- Can do all the content with proper gear and some experience with the build
- 5 utility flasks
- Energy Shield based build (some people don't like giving up life flask)

Elder helmet crafted with decent energy shield and flat fire damage to spells. As far as helmet enchantments go, it’s up to your preference.
Body ArmourShavronne's Wrappings
Must have item once build transitions into low life. Before that, any rare energy shield based chest with life and resistances works great.
Rare energy shield based gloves with high ES, elemental resistances and if possible, some dexterity.
High movement speed (25%-30%), decent energy shield and fair amount of elemental resistances.
Left RingMark of the Shaper
Works very well with Elder ring for extra spell damage.
Right RingRare Elder Ring
Elder Ring with flat fire damage to spells and attacks. It synergizes very well with Mark of the Shaper unique ring for additional 60-80% increased spell damage.
AmuletPresence of Chayula
This amulet is not required by any means and it is kind of expensive for very casual players. Rare amulet with spell damage, global critical strike multiplier or cast speed works just fine. However, Presence of Chayula provides very hefty amount of chaos resistance and extra energy shield based on your maximum life.
Rare Stygian Vise belt with flat energy shield, strength and elemental resistances.
Use Brightbeak for mapping and switch to Doryani’s Cataclyst for stronger encounters.
Rare shield with %increased critical strike chance for spells, %increased fire/spell damage and elemental resistances.
Don’t worry if you can’t get your hands on once, it doesn’t make or break build. Simply quality of life addition. We want Watcher’s Eye with ”-# total mana cost of skills while affected by clarity”.
Note: if you are affected by mana problems, consider switching any curse for warlord’s mark.

Note: For The Wise Oak to work properly, your fire resistance must be the highest.
