CONSECRATED PATH

BUILD

INFORMATION

This is a Chieftain based build focusing on the Skill Consecrated Path with 100% of physical damage converted to Fire Damage. This is an awesome build, with great clear speed and endgame potential. If you ever wanted more control over your Flicker Strike, this one is for you.

Pros

  • Awesome Clear Speed

  • Easy to play

  • Tanky

  • Great Endgame killer

  • Great Single Target Damage

Cons

  • Abyssus is highly recommended, this means that you take more physical damage

EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- I recommend a Belly of The Beast, it provides up to 40% increased maximum life and 15% to all elemental resistances.
- A Lightning Coil is also an awesome choice because it provides "30% of physical damage taken as lightning damage" It helps to endure the extra damage taken because of Abyssus.   
- ​You can also use a rare body armour with life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • SWORDS
- Dreamfeather is very cheap and awesome for this build, it grants up to •268 Physical DPS, 25% Attack Speed and 675 Accuracy rating. Rare swords with better results worth several exalteds Examples here
  • HELMET
​Abyssus is for sure the best helmet for this build, it increases your damage by a LOT. The downside is that you take up to 50% more physical damage while wearing it.
- ​A rare helmet with life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- Rare gloves with life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • BOOTS
- ​Rare boots with movement speed, life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • BELT
- ​A rare belt with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
- ​A rare ring with life, elemental resistances and elemental damage with attacks. Examples here.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare ring with life, elemental resistances and elemental damage with attacks. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- A fire Impresence is interesting for this build because you can use Flammability as an aura instead of Orb of Storms setup. 
- ​Or you can use a rare amulet with life, elemental resistances Intelligence. Examples here.
  • FLASKS
- Divine Life Flasks. Look for mods like ''instant recovery'', ''removes bleeding'' and ''removes freeze''. Examples here and here.
- Diamond Flask for more critical strikes. Look for mods like "increased duration" and "increased armour during flask effect". Examples here.
- The good old Atziri's Promise for a big boost to your damage and life leech. 
- A Lion's Roar to boost your armour and melee physical damage.
- Rumis's Concoction as a defensive flask to boost your armour and block chance.
- A Wise Oak to boost your damage with fire penetration. Remember that your uncapped fire resistance must be the highest. Details here.

THIS BUILD'S FAQ
  • Is there a good place to buy unique items?
- Not only for unique items, poe.trade or pathofexile.com/trade are great websites for trading your items.
  • I'm lvl 40 and I'm dying a lot, what can I do?
- Please take a look at your Elemental Resistances, they are really important for your survivability. After lvl 40 try to keep at least 50% of each. The meximum is 75%, try to reach that when on end game.
  • I don't have as much HP as the gameplay shows and I've followed the Skill Tree step by step. Can you help me?
- Look for more HP at your rare gear. You can have ''+89 to maximum life'' on your helmet for instance.
