MOLTEN STRIKE

BUILD

INFORMATION

This is a Berserker based build focusing on the Skill Molten Strike with 100% of physical damage converted to Fire Damage. This is an awesome build, with good clear speed and an endgame destroyer. If you like melee builds, have a bunch of Exalteds 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 Strength

  • Super Expensive

  • 5 Mandatory Unique Items

  • Hard to Cap Elemental Resistances

  • 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 mandatory because it grants 100 Strength and 2% life regeneration.
  • BOOTS
- ​Rare boots with movement speed, life, strength, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • BELT
- ​I recommend a Cyclopean Coil because it can give you up to 15% increased attributes (Strength) and 120 life.
- ​Or you can use 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 mandatory, 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.
  • 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.

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.
  • How do you generate Frenzy Charges?
- Blood Rage grants a chance to gain Frenzy Charges on kill
  • How do you generate Endurance Charges?
- Enduring Cry
  • Why my Cast When Damage Taken setup does not work?
- Please make sure that Cast When Damage Taken is lvl 12, Summon Stone Golem lvl 14 and Immortal Call lvl 14.
  • Why Cast When Damage Taken at lvl 12 and Immortal Call at lvl 14 and Stone Golem lvl 14?
- Cast When Damage Taken can only support Spell gems that have the same required lvl or lower. At lvl 12, the required level of Cast When Damage Taken is 60, same as lvl 14 Immortal Call and lvl 14 Stone Golem
