MOLTEN STRIKE

BUILD

INFORMATION

This is a Berserker based build focusing on the Skill Molten Strike. This is an awesome build, with good clear speed and an endgame destroyer. If you like melee builds and want to kill endgame bosses like minions, this one is for you.

Pros

  • Good Clear Speed

  • Almost Instant Leech

  • Easy to Get a Big Life Pool 

  • Endgame Destroyer

Cons

  • Needs at least 900 Strengths

  • Needs a Lot of Life Regeneration to Sustain Blood Rage and Rage

EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- I recommend a Belly of The Beast, it provides up to 40% increased maximum life and 15% to all elemental resistances.
- ​You can also use a rare body armour with life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • MACE
- Butus' Lead Sprinkler is mandatory for this build, it grants 4 - 7 Fire Damage to attacks per 10 Strength and that's why this build needs that lot of strength. It also grants up to 20% attack speed and 46% fire damage.
  • HELMET
- ​A rare helmet with life, strength, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- Meginord's Vise is recommended because it grants 100 Strength and 2% life regeneration.
  • BOOTS
- ​ I recommend Alberon's Warpath because it grants 18% increased Strength.
- Or you can use ​rare boots with movement speed, life, strength, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • BELT
- A rare belt with life, strength and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
- ​A rare ring with life, strength, elemental resistances and elemental damage with attacks. Examples here.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare Elder ring with strength and life gained on hit or strength and Poacher's Mark on hit. Examples here and here. (Poacher's Mark also grants life gained on hit, it's important to have one of those because with all those balls hitting the boss you have almost instant leech.
  • AMULET
- A Xoph's Blood is recommended, so you can convert 100% of your damage to fire damage. It also grants 30 strength, 10% increased strength, 10% increased life and cover enemies in ash for more fire damage taken and slow. This amulet is expensive, but I really recommend you save currency to buy one.
- While saving currency use a Rare amulet with Life, strength and elemental resistances. Example here.
  • SHIELD
​Lycosidae is mandatory because without it you hit chance is about 75% which is not satisfatory.
  • FLASKS
- Divine Life Flask. Look for mods like ''instant recovery'', ''removes bleeding''. Examples here.
- 1 Silver Flask for 20% attack speed and movement speed, look for "increased duration" and "increased armour during flask effect" as mods. Examples here.
- 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.
  • ENCHANTMENTS
- ​Helmet: Molten Strike fires 2 Additional Projectiles.
- Gloves: Of Fury
- Boots: Attack and Cast Speed
P.S. Enchantments are not super important, so don't feel bad if you don't have the right ones ;)
