FIRE WILD STRIKE

BUILD

INFORMATION

This is a Chieftain based build focusing on the Skill Wild Strike using 2 Combat Focus to make it always chose fire damage. This is an awesome build, with great clear speed and endgame potential.

Pros

  • Awesome Clear Speed

  • Easy to play

  • Great Endgame killer

  • Great Single Target Damage

  • Very Fast and Fun

Cons

  • If using Abyssus for more damage you also take more physical damage

EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- The best body armour for this build would be an Elder one with a lot life, and more critical strike chance for attacks. Examples here.
- As a budget option 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.   
  • 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.
- If currency is not a problem you can treat yourself some rare foils with high physical DPS, Attack speed and Critical Chance. Examples here.
  • HELMET
- I recommend Starkonja's Head because with this helmet you'll hardly die, it provides up to 100 maximum life and a huge evasion buff when on low life.
-But if you want to be super strong and less tanky use Abyssus , because it gives a huge amount of extra damage. You become vulnerable to physical damage though.
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.
- ​You can also use 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
- Essence Worm is mandatory because it allows us to activate an aura without reserving mana.
  • 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.
- A Cinderswallow Urn is also a great choice because it not only grants Mana and Life recovery on kill but also because it grants Onslaught and 10% more damage to ignited enemies.

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.
