DIVINE IRE TOTEMS

BUILD

INFORMATION

This is a Hierophant based build focusing on Totems of the Skill Divine Ire. This is a very beginner friendly build because it's very safe and easy to play. If you are part of the Totem Master Race, this build is totally for you.

Pros

  • Cheap

  • Easy to play

  • Good currency farmer

  • Safe playstyle

  • League starter

  • Easy endgame

  • Map mods aren't a problem

  • Good single target damage

Cons

  • Passive playstyle

  • 4 Mandatory Uniques, they're are very cheap though

  • Ring slots occupied by mandatory rings, cap your resistances might get tricky

EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- The unique body armour Soul Mantle is mandatory for this build, it provides "Socketed gems are supported by level 20 Spell Totem" and 1 additional totem. The downside is that it curses you with a random Curse when a totem dies. But don't worry, here on this guide you are going to learn how to turn this downside into a benefit. 
  • WEAPON
- ​I recommend Dual Wielding weapons that grant extra damage for you, but if you want extra defenses you can totally wear a Shield on your Off-hand slot.
- A Singularity is the cheapest weapon for this build, it grants up to 40-70 lightning damage to spells, 30% increased Elemental Damage and 80% increased Damage against Hindered Enemies. Above all nearby enemies will be Hindered with 25% less movement speed.
- As soon as you get a little more currency get is a rare wand with at least 80% increased spell damage, 80% increased critical chance for spells and +1 to all lightning spell skill gems. Examples here.
- The best weapon you can get is a good rare sceptre with at least 18% physical damage as extra lightning damage and 18% physical damage as extra fire damage. Examples here.
- If you want to wear a shield, I recommend Lioneye's Remorse that grants a great amount of Life, Armour and extra defenses against projectiles.
  • HELMET
- ​A rare helmet with life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- ​Rare gloves with life, elemental resistances and energy shield. Examples here.
  • BOOTS
- ​Rare boots with movement speed, life, elemental resistances and evasion. Examples here.
  • BELT
- ​A rare belt with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
- ​Remember when I said about turning the curses into a benefit? It starts here with Kikazaru as a mandatory ring, it reduces 40% of curse effect on you, with 2 rings you are going to barely feel the curses on you.
  • RING #2
- ​Another Kikazaru
  • AMULET
- A rare amulet with life and a lot of dexterity. 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.
- Quicksilver Flask for more movement and clear speed. Look for mods like "increased duration" and "increased movement speed during flask effect". Examples here.
- The good old Atziri's Promise for a big boost to your damage and life leech. 
- A Wise Oak to boost your damage with Lightning penetration. Remember that your uncapped lightning 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.
  • You say the build is cheap, but a 6 Linked body armour is expensive. How?
- 6 Linked body armour is not mandatory for this build to work. Maximize a build with the best possible items and 6 Linkeds takes a good amount of currency. Start using 4 Linkeds on low tier maps in order to farm currency to upgrade your gear.
  • How do you generate Power and Endurance Charges
- The ascendancy Hierophant has a Passive called "Conviction of Power" that grants 50% chance to get a power charge when you place a totem and 25% change to get an endurance charge when you get a power charge.
