3.8 ūüźČ Dragon's Breath Chieftain Incinerate -All content-League starter- SC & HC viable - Videos

3.8 BLIGHT LEAGUE COMPLETE BUILD GUIDE

1.10. ADDED BONUS SECTION FOR SECONDARY (OPTIONAL) STAFF
DO NOT CRAFT ON WAR STAVES



Hi all and welcome to the Chieftain variant of my Dragon's Breath Elementalist build. With all amazing stuff in 3.7 that came with Chieftain rework I wanted to fill the holes Elementalist has. Even though with higher dps, Elementalist has a issue with phys mitigation and poor sustain which is a problem for some players. That's the time when Beeftain comes to shine.
It is a self-cast semi-crit build. I wanted it to be flexible, very tanky, all content capable and most important, to be fun to play.

Check out my new 3.8 ūüźćTorstein's Ultimate Poison Pathfinder - Venom Gyre / Pestilent Strike - All content & Map Mods https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/2639074


Please read full guide before starting the build.
For any feedback, questions or help with the build, leave a comment on this thread.
Wish you many fun hours in Blight league!

Incinerate & and build mechanics
Spoiler
Incinerate gains more damage when cast continuously from one spot, up to a maximum of 200% more damage (25% per stage up to 8 stages maximum, or 10 if you use the helmet enchantment). The next stage is reached after every tick (0.2s). At each stage, the flames become visibly larger and will spread out in a huge cone. Since the spell is a channeling spell, if the player is stunned or interrupted in any way while casting incinerate, the spell will come back to stage 1.
At the end of the channeling (Final Wave), Incinerate deals big chunk of extra damage, 500% MORE damage with Hits and 500% MORE damage with Ignite. That’s a lot of extra damage.

To get the maximum dps out of Incinerate you should channel to 8 stages and release. Final wave deals massive damage. If you played Blade Flurry, this is the same principle.
Monster mobs die fast so maximum channeling is not needed. The area will still be very good.

You will be scaling as much cast speed as you can to channel as fast as possible to 8 stages and bigger area of Incinerate (10 with enchant). Cast speed to aim is minimum 13 casts/sec and the more you have the better.

Aspect of the Spider - slows down enemies and they take up to 15% more damage

Flesh & Blood -Nearby Enemies are Blinded while in Sand Stance
You take (10-11)% LESS Damage from Enemies that aren't nearby while in Sand Stance



Leveling guide
Spoiler

Lets start,
when you kill Hillock go to the vendor and search for “movement” to see if he has movement speed boots and buy them if he has. Since you will be Marauder class you will not have access to the caster gems at the start so you will start to level as a dual wield melee character with Holy Flame totem. For melee skill pick Smite. Link it with Chance to Bleed and Ruthless. If you don't some get some of those as a reward you can buy them from vendor.

At level 4 when you finish quest "Breaking Some Eggs" buy from Nessa Holy Flame Totem and continue with totem + melee skill of choice. Totem links are Holy Flame totem - Added fire damage - Combustion. When you finish Act 3 quest "A Fixture of Fate" you will have access to all gems from Siosa.

When you finish those early quests:

Breaking Some Eggs
Act 1 buy Holy Flame totem
The Caged Brute
Act 1 buy Leap Slam. Added Fire damage & Combustion gems you should link to Holy Flame Totem

3L melee Smite - Ruthless - Chance to Bleed
3L Holy Flame Totem - Added Fire damage - Combustion

Intruders in Black
Act 2 take Herald of Ash

The Great White Beast
Act 2 take 2nd Quicksilver flask

The Ribbon Spool
Act 3 from Diala take Lapis amulet

A Fixture of Fate
Act 3
this is the important quest because after finishing it you can buy all gems you want from Siosa.

Buy from Siosa Incinerate, Faster Casting and Infused Channeling gems and put them into secondary weapon slot. Also buy Summon Skitterbots, Faster Attacks + Shield Charge and Flame Dash.
Before fighting Dominus, final boss of act 3, located in The Upper Sceptre of God, on the Tower Rooftop, switch to 4L Incinerate setup.

4L Incinerate - Faster Casting - Combustion - Inspiration
If you don't have 4L blue socketed item do this:
Buy 3L scepter and a ruby ring from vendors. If the scepter is not magic, make it magic with Transmutation orb.
Now sell to vendor magic 3L scepter, ruby ring and 1 Alteration orb. He will give you back +1 to socketed Fire gems wand/scepter.

Tip: If you are in a trade league buy Incinerate gem on trade or ask some Witch in town to buy it for you. Put it in 2nd weapon slot and level the gem while you progress. /Even better would be to buy all 4 gems and switch to Incinerate at ~lvl 20/ Start using Incinerate when you finish Fixture of Faith. That way your gem will be at level 5 when you get before Dominus and fight will be a joke.
If you are not in a trade league continue leveling with Smite and Holy Flame totem until Incinerate is level 3. Kill Dominus when Incinerate reaches lvl 3-4.

Great! You are now ready to go, and start using Incinerate. Continue leveling with Incinerate setup and Holy Flame Totem setup.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Later on can farm Humility cards at Blood Aqueduct at Act 9 to get Tabula Rasa.

For weapons you can use any rare crap scepter with some cast speed/spell damage/fire damage/added fire damage/elemental damage will be ok.

With Tabula you are all Gucci. Leveling with Incinerate will be a breeze as you put few levels into the gem (if you haven't leveled it) since you have started using it later than a witch would.

Finish normal lab when you switch to Incinerate.


As you progress to 6L go in this order
Incinerate – Faster Casting – Combustion - Inspiration – Infused Channeling – Conc. Effect(bosses)/Increased Area of Effect(mapping)

Also from the moment you start using Incinerate follow the gem links in PoB for League Starter!

Usefull leveling items:
Tabula Rasa
Lifesprig
Wanderlust
Goldrim
Meginord's Girdle
Le Heup Of All
Lochtonial Caress
Ngamahu's Sign

Items
Spoiler

---don't pay attention to gems sloted in items here---

STAFF CRAFTING

Lets start from the staff. This is the best bang for your money crafted staff. Better staves can be crafted ofc but this is easy and cost efficient solution. Total price for staff crafting is ~4 Exalted orbs.

If you don't want to bother crafting buy 6L Martyr of Innocence staff. It will push out 30% less damage than the crafted one and prob be more expensive but it's still viable and ok solution.

-How to craft it
Crafting base: 6L casting base staff (not War staff) with min. item level 77 if you want +3 gems. Since those bases are expensive for some reason in Blight it's perfectly fine to go with any non-Warstaff that has min. item level 2. Those 6L staves start at 30c or less!
(for +2 fire spell skill gems min item level staff is 2. It will give 10% less damage but its pretty cheap)

If you are playing SFF you can also get the 6L crafting base form the "The Dark Mage" divination cards. But be aware that you might get a war staff from the cards which can't roll caster mods. You can buy cards or farm them in the following areas:
*Overgrown Ruin
*The Chamber of Sins Level 2

DO NOT LINK THE STAFF YOURSELF! BUY THE 6L BASE IT'S CHEAP!
DO NOT USE WAR STAVES BECAUSE THEY CAN'T ROLL CASTER MODS! THESE ARE WAR STAVES BASES:
Iron Staff-Warstaff
Coiled Staff-Warstaff
Vile Staff-Warstaff
Military Staff-Warstaff
Serpentine Staff-Warstaff
Foul Staff-Warstaff
Ezomyte Staff-Warstaff
Maelström Staff-Warstaff
Judgement Staff-Warstaff


1.Use Scouring orb and use Transmutation orb to make item Magic
2.Spam Alteration orbs until you get +3(+2) to Level of all Fire Spell Skill Gems prefix mod
3.Use Regal orb to make item Rare
4.Now you should have just +3(+2) to Level of all Fire Spell Skill Gems mod and one or two another mods after using Regal. Use Annulment orbs to remove 1 or 2 random mods. There are 33-50% chances to be left with just +3(+2) mod
If you were unlucky and got +3(+2) mod removed, repeat the whole process from point 1.

5.If the item is Rare (yellow) and only have +3(+2) to Level of all Fire Spell Skill Gems mod, craft suffix "Can have Multiple Crafted Modifiers" on bench. It costs 2 Exalted orbs.
6.Further craft on bench
prefix (hybrid) (59–66)% increased Spell Damage & Gain (5–6)% of Non-Chaos Damage as extra Chaos Damage ---4 Chaos Orbs
prefix Adds (41–55) to (83–96) Fire Damage to Spells ---4 Chaos Orbs
suffix (26–30)% chance to deal Double Damage while Focussed ---1 Divine Orb
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
For the last suffix choose one of those 2 mods. Top tier cast speed mod is better but if you can't afford it go with hybrid.
suffix (21-28)% increased Cast speed ---1 Exalted Orb
OR
suffix (16-19)% increased Cast Speed
10% chance to gain Arcane Surge when you Kill an Enemy ---4 Chaos Orbs

Body Armour
Spoiler
Kaom's Heart

Not much to say about this one, +500 to maximum life speaks for itself.


Rings
Spoiler
You want 2 Opal rings (min item level 80). They are craftable with
which gives you guaranteed (27-30 increased fire damage). You just need to hit life and resistance with it. They are also craftable with prestine, prismatic fossils and potent chaotic resonator. Essence crafting tends to be much cheaper than fossil crafting since these essences are ~2c. You can also use Screaming Essence of Anger that is even cheaper.

Pay attention to have free prefix on one ring after essence/fossil crafting so you can craft Channelling Skills have -3 to Total Mana Cost! Craft that on only one of your rings so you can reduce mana consumption by Incinerate to 2. That way you don't need mana leech or mana flasks! This is important.


Amulet
Spoiler
Shaped amulet with elemental penetration, cast speed/spell damage/fire damage, some life, some res.
OR
Elder amulet with "Gain #% of Non-Chaos Damage as extra Chaos Damage", cast speed/spell damage/fire damage, some life, some res.
I bought this amulet without aspect and later beastcrafted it.


Belt
Spoiler

Preferably Stygian Vise belt with high total life roll. Belt slot is the best to get strength attribute and resistances. Anything else is bonus. If you can't afford Stygian, go for the Heavy or Leather belt with high life roll, it's totally fine.


Helmet
Spoiler

Buy high ilvl helmet base that already has enchant, and fossil craft (pristine and scorched fossils) it further for high life, fire res and -9% fire res to nearby enemies.


Boots
Spoiler

Rare boots with high life roll and chaos resistance are the best choice for me.

For Uber Elder you can use Kaom's Roots, preferably corrupted with movement speed.


Gloves
Spoiler

Shaped gloves with cast speed and life


Jewels
Spoiler
-Getting cast speed and life is a priority!


Search for combination of these explicit mods:
-increased Cast Speed while wielding a Staff
-increased Cast Speed with Fire Skills
-increased Attack and Cast Speed
-increased Cast Speed
-increased maximum Life



Flasks
Spoiler

Suffixes that you must have:
-of Staunching (Bleeding immunity)
-of Heat (Freeze and chill immunity)
-of Warding (Curse immunity)

If you want more damage and sustain use Cinderswallow as a top choice flask instead of Atziri's Promise with 2-3% life recovered on kill and 3% life regeneration.


For life recovery best option is Blood of the Karui because of high life pool. Regular flask are pretty bad.



Aspect of the spider
Spoiler
Can be beastcrafted on any rare item that has a free suffix. You can buy jewelry with or without it and beastcraft aspect as long the item has free suffix. Beastcraft with this

Don't use Aspect of the Spider before you craft on ring -(3) mana mods FOR CHANNELING SKILLS AND YOU GET ENLIGHTEN LEVEL 4 GEM

Enchants
Spoiler
Helmet:

Boots:
for damage "damage penetrates 10% elemental resistances"
for tankyness "regenerate 2% of life and mana if you been hit recently"

BONUS SECTION - if you want to spend extra money for more clear speed and fun
Spoiler
If you have extra currency to spend and you like the build you will craft one more staff for better clear speed. I wont repeat the whole crafting process here, i'll just write what mods you are going to craft and the gem setup.

Now you will have 2 staves, one for bossing and big boy damage and one for mapping/blighting in your secondary weapon slot. You can hot swap them on X key. With 2 staves you wont have to make gem swaps.

Mods:
+3 to Level of all Fire Spell Skill Gems
Can have multiple Crafted Modifiers
Adds (41-55) to (83-96) Fire Damage to Spells
(21-28)% increased Cast Speed
(8-10)% chance to deal Double Damage (not focus on this one)
hybrid (59-66)% increased Spell Damage & Gain (5-6)% of Non-Chaos Damage as extra Chaos Damage

Gem setup for this staff:
Incinerate level 21 - Cast While Channeling - Volatile Dead level 21 - Fire penetration - Inspiration - Controlled Destruction

Nope, leveling for Chieftain will be little different because you can't buy strait away caster gems. Ill add the leveling section prob during the day.
Also i will update Elementalist, so you can chose what suits your needs more. :)

Did you have any mana issues now that WM is dead to spell casters?

If not I am guessing I would probably have issues if I tried a CwC staff with Incinerate/Volatile Dead.

Other than the boot enchant im still looking to see what other viable mana options there are out there. Clarity I suppose for early game, maybe a watcher's eye. Not sure.

I bypassed mana issue with 2x crafted mods "- to Total Mana cost of Skills" on rings/amulet and some mana cost reduction on the passive tree.
My Incinerate uses 0 mana.

Hey Thorstein. I am rather interested in the build as a starter but I am wondering how you think this will compare to your elementalist version in terms of map speed. My concern is that in the elementalist version videos with proliferation the clear speed is ok but without proliferation, will it significantly impact clear?

Also, how early do you think you can kill Uber elder with this build,,?
