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

  • Great Endgame killer

  • Great Single Target Damage

Cons

  • Abyssus is 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
- Razor of the Seventh Sun is very cheap and awesome for this build, It has up to 323 DPS, and grants 100% increased attack damage against ignited enemies.
- Dreamfeather  is another awesome choice because it grants 25% increased attack speed. More attack speed makes this build more fluid, but Razor of the Seventh Sun grants more damage.
- My favourite way to run this build is to use one of each sword, this way I have the damage and the attack speed.
  • HELMET
- ​I recommend Abyssus , because it gives a huge amount of extra damage. You become vulnerable to physical damage though.
- Starkonja's Head is a good alternative if you want to stay safe, it provides up to 100 maximum life and a huge evasion buff when on low life.
Rat's Nest is a good balance between defensive (Starkonja's) and offensive (Abyssus), it provides 15% attack speed and up to 75% increased critical chance.
- ​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 rare amulet with life, elemental resistances and 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.
- 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.
