Pros

  • Tanky

  • Good currency farmer

Cons

EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- I highly recommend Kaom's Heart because of its huge amount of flat life. More life means more damage for Righteous Fire.
- A good alternative is 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.
  • SCEPTRE
- ​A rare mace with elemental and fire damage. Examples here.
- I highy recommend Doryani's Catalyst that can reach over 130% increased elemental damage.
  • HELMET
- ​The best would be a rare helmet crafted with Essence of Horror for 30% more elemental damage, with life. Examples here.
- You can also wear 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.
- You can also wear Kaom's Roots for the extra life.
  • BELT
- ​A rare belt with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
- ​A rare ring with life, and elemental resistances. Examples here.
- A great choice is the Opal Ring with some fire damage and life. Examples here.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare ring with life, and elemental resistances. Examples here.
- A great choice is the Opal Ring with some fire damage and life. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- A rare amulet with life, dexterity and intelligence. Examples here.
  • SHIELD
- I'm listing the Rise of the Phoenix as mandatory for this build, because of its 5% to maximum fire resistance,
  • FLASKS
- ​2 Divine Life Flasks. Look for mods like ''instant recovery'', ''removes bleeding'' and ''removes freeze''. Examples here and here.
- Ruby flask for even more maximum fire resistance. Look for the "Increased Duration" mod. Examples here.
- Stibnite flask for blinding your enemies and boosting your evasion. Look for the "Increased Duration" and "Increased Armour" mods. Examples here. (Don't use it if you are wearing Kaom's Roots (these unique boots remove your ability to evade attacks) or already have Witchfire Brew)
- Rumis's Concoction as a defensive flask to boost your armour and block chance.
Witchfire Brew is awesome for this build, mainly because of the Dispair aura and increased damage over time.

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 are you generating Endurance Charges?
- Enduring Cry
  • My own life drops fastly when I use Righteous Fire, what can I do?
- Please make sure that you have your Rise of the Phoenix equipped, your Vitality and Purity of Fire Auras active and your fire resistance is capped. Also check your Pantheon and life regeneration, equiping a Marble Amulet helps.
  • Kaom's Roots and Kaom's Heart don't have sockets, where should I place the totems and the Immortal Call setup?
- You don't. Using Kaom's Items means that you are sacrificing those setups for a bunch of extra life.
  • Why Cast When Damage Taken  at level 1 and Immortal Call at level 3?
- Cast When Damage Taken can only support spell gems that have the same required level or lower.  At level 1 the required level of Cast When Damage Taken is 38, the same as Immortal Call at level 3. 
  • Why Whisper of Doom if I only have 1 Curse (Flammability)?
- Actually you have 2 curses, Flammability and Dispair, this one you get using the flask Witchfire Brew.
  • Cast When Damage Taken cannot trigger Vaal skills, why do you put them on the same setup?
- Vaal Grace is not there to be triggered by Cast When Damage Taken, but to be supported by Increased Duration.
