Intro & build description
Righteous Fire builds are usually hailed for their ability to do most of the content effortlessly because of their great survivability and ability to deal damage uninterrupted. This relatively cheap RF Juggernaut is not an exception – it has great clear speed, damage and life pool which will play great in the new league.
- Very tanky
- Can do all the content in the game and without a doubt will perform well in Betrayal league
- Can use shield charge and move around quickly
- Can be a bit slow to start with in new league, but it's manageable

HelmetRare Shaper Helm
Look for rare Shaped helm that has “socketed gems deal 30% more elemental damage” option. Ideally you’d want that with “socketed gems are supported by level x Burning Damage”, but that’s more end-game option because it can be expensive to craft or buy. At the beginning just buy white shaped helmet and use Essence of Horror on it.
Body ArmourKaom's Heart
Kaom’s Heart is one of the best chests for Righteous Fire builds because they don’t need as many sockets as other builds. Chest also gives you huge life pool and some fire damage to go with it.
Look for rare gloves with as much life and resistances you can find. Dexterity on gloves would be ideal – you could potentially save a point on 2 on the skill tree.
Look for rare boots with 30% movement speed, high life and resistances. Ideally you should also have “Regenerate 2% of life and mane per second if you were hit recently” lab enchant on them.
Left RingKaom's Way
2x Kaom’s Way rings are essential for the build because they give us life regeneration for each Endurance Charge. Since Juggernaut has a lot of Endurance Charges, these rings give tons of regen.
Note: make sure you do not get scammed, people often try to scam you by trading you Kaom’s Sign which is not one we need.
Right RingKaom's Way
We need 2 of these rings.
AmuletBloodgrip / Rare Elder Marble Amulet
Good amulet to start with would be Bloodgrip. It’s cheap and gives us some life regeneration and life.
Ideal amulet would be Elder Marble amulet with % life regeneration crafted on it.
BeltRare Elder belt
Look for belt with high life and resistances.
Ideal belt would be Elder belt with “x% increased life recovery rate”, because it would affect our global regeneration and reduce Righteous Fire degen.
1Hand WeaponDoryani's Catalyst
Doryani’s Catalyst is great all-around weapon for the build.
Cheap alternative would be Balefire.
With 3.8, there have come some new
OffhandRise of The Phoenix / Saffel's Frame
There are 2 good shield choices – Rise of The Phoenix and Saffel’s Frame.
My suggestion would be to go for Rise of The Phoenix early and switch to Saffel’s when you can comfortably sustain Righteous Fire degen.
On jewels look for:
1.) Increased maximum life / to maximum life (Abyss Jewels)
2.) Increased burning / fire / area damage
3.) Increased Damage over time
4.) Attributes if you are lacking
JewelMight of The Meek
Put this jewel in slot under constitution keystone.
When you have some more currency, I’d strongly suggest investing in Vitality Watcher’s Eye.
Look for increased life recovery rate or flat regeneration one.
Look for following flasks:
1.) Instant Recovery Life Flask
2.) Forbidden Taste
3.) Witchfire Brew
4.) Quicksilver Flask
5.) Ruby Flask with burning removal for emergencies
