[PoE 3.12 Build] Magma Orb Ranger (Deadeye)

Intro & build description

Magma Orb might not be the most popular skill, but that’s why this build is so awesome as a league starter. It can be played on a budget, has exceptional clear speed and can do high-level content such as Awakener with a few Exalts invested in your gear. This build utilizes Divine Flesh keystone and stacks chaos resistance making it way tankier than your average spellcaster.

Build Pros

  • Has more than 6500 life due to Kaom's Heart
  • Exceptional clear speed in maps
  • Can attack Metamorphs off-screen
  • Has spell leech from Gloomfang and Glorious Vanity

Build Cons

  • Elemental reflect is deadly for the build

Rare Helmet with enchantment

The most important thing to look for on the helmet is Magma orb chains 2 additional times.

After that, craft it using pristine and prismatic fossils for life and resistances.

Body Armour

Kaom's Heart

Since we use gloves with 2 support gem mods, we can go for Kaom’s Heart which makes the build pretty tanky while boosting fire damage a little as well.


Rare Shaper Gloves

Look for rare Shaper gloves with 2 mods:

1.) Socketed Gems are Supported by Level 16 Slower Projectiles

2.) Socketed Gems are Supported by Level 18 Faster Casting

If gloves with these 2 mods have life as well, that’s excellent. After that, you should look to craft +1 to socketed AoE or projectile gems, or both, if you can afford multiple crafted mods.


Rare Boots

Look for rare boots with high life, 30% movement speed and some resistance. Craft cold/lightning/fire + chaos resistance.

Left Ring

Rare Shaper / Crusader ring

Look for rare shaper / crusader ring with high life and +Life gained for each enemy hit by your spells. Craft a chaos resistance on top of that and you’re good.

Right Ring

Circle of Anguish

Look for Circle of Anguish ring with increased Herald of Ash buff effect as a main stat and increased fire damage as a secondary one.



Great amulet for the build – focus on getting this item as soon as possible.

In Endless Delve, use rare amulet


Rare Stygian Vise

Look for rare Stygian Vise with high life chaos resistance and another elemental resistance. When you can, craft Aspect of The Spider on it.

1Hand Weapon

Rare Wand

Look for rare wands with following mods:

1.) at least 60% increased spell damage
2.) +1 to Level of all Fire Spell Skill Gems (A must have on both wands)
3.) x-x Fire damage to spells
4.) Increased cast speed


Rare Wand

Same as previously mentioned wand


Jewel Setup

This build uses 2 Inevitability unique jewels – get them as soon as you can. Put one of them in a slot just right of Instability node, another one in the slot closest to Quick Recovery node.

This build also uses Glorious Vanity (100-8000 Xibaqua) jewel to turn Pain Attunement keystone into Divine Flesh to stack Chaos resistance for extra tankiness. Put it in the jewel slot right under Pain Attunement.

On rare jewels look for following stats:

1.) Increased maximum life
2.) Any cast speed mod we can get
3.) Elemental and chaos resistance
4.) Increased spell damage
5.) Incresed projectile damage


Flask Setup

1.) Divine Flask with instant recovery and bleed removal
2.) Quicksilver Flask of Adrenaline
3.) Lavianga’s Spirit
4.) Atziri’s Promise
5.) Cinderswallow Urn
