[3.6] Molten Strike Chieftain



3.6: Anger buffs. Loreweave and tombfist nerf. Nothing changes so far, except using Bottled Faith. Will add more stuff if 3.6 reveals some fitting gear choices.

Hi, this my third build guide.

I do not claim my guide to be original or the best or even this build to be super efficient. I write guides mostly because I'm fond of my characters and I'd like to share them. (and cause I want to kill time)

Pros:
Tanky. (6.5k+ hp, 6 end charges, regen, upto 80% max res, chieftain)
Busted single target.
Easy to fill up res.

Cons:
Okayish clearspeed.


Introduction
Spoiler

I wanted to try Molten Strike for its busted single target. Ancestral call makes clearing bearable.

Typically molten strike is best paired with life gain on hit, by going claws (which means going right side of the tree with inquisitor) or by getting elder rings with LGOH. Or just go JUGG, cause why not go jugg with everything.

However, I wanted to go phys > fire full conversion, and didn't want to go jugg (which I started out as), cause I felt that much defence was overkill and I wanted to max out my dmg.

Path of Building does not count the '70% of Physical Damage as Extra Fire Damage' from Ngamahu, Flame's Advance node as of now. Which boils down to about 21% more damage (10% more against Shaper).


Levelling
Spoiler


Level as consecrated path/sunder. Ichimonji is a good starter weapon.

34 points


57 points


86 points


103 points


118 points - Endurance charges and jewel sockets

Tawhoa > Ramako > Ngamahu > Hinekora

Getting Ramako early helps with gearing.

Weapon:
Spoiler


Decent pdps foil.

Budget option: Grelwood Shanks, Ichimonji.


Helmet:
Spoiler


BIS - +2 Molten Strike Projectiles. (rip +3)

Fossil crafted -9% fire res helm. Ideally get the % phys taken as fire prefix craft.

Budget option: Anything with life, res, int.


Chest:
Spoiler


Since we don't need that much more much dmg I think an elder chest would be too much. You could also go with belly.

Budget option: Any rare chest, Tabula Rasa.


Gloves:
Spoiler


Intimidate, Maim, attack speed, life.

BIS - Fury. Helps with clearspeed.

Budget option - Anything with life, res.


Boots:
Spoiler


Life, with stun, freeze, temp chains immunity. The downside actually helps trigger Ramako regen.

Good enchants/corruptions - Regenerate 2% of Life and Mana per second if you were Hit Recently / +1 Maximum Endurance charges

Budget option - Anything with life, res.


Amulet:
Spoiler


Flat phys to attacks, multi, life, wed, dex.

Aspect of the Spider is not needed, I just had as extra suffix lying around at the time and it helped with jumpy bosses.



Belt:
Spoiler


Look for WED roll, after you cap your resists and get life.


Rings:
Spoiler


Life, resists, int.

WED and flat phys to attacks are a bonus.


Flasks:
Spoiler



Note: Swap Basalt with Bottled faith if you have one.



Swap in Dying sun for Rumi's if you need the defense.

You need to have your uncapped fire res as the highest for Wise Oak, if you're not using Dying sun.



Jewels:
Spoiler





If you have one. Insane dmg boost from one item.




Gem Links

Chest:

I prefer combustion over Ele Focus, helps to clear better, for very slight dmg loss.


Swap for bosses

I may go this route since my dual nebuloch is becoming a little more complicated than i expected... How expensive is this build?

If you factor in all the items, its really expensive (around 50ex).

But you can drop stuff like, two socket tombfists, dying sun, +2 proj helm, watcher's eye. Should end up being around 10ex at this point in the league, depending on how expensive rings/belt/amulet you get.

Will build on current League 3.5, if so, how are things with the Syndicate, whether he tancet and breaks?

The syndicate should not be a problem. The damage is more than enough to kill them fast and with 6 endurance charges, wise oak and Atziri's Promise, it should be defensive enough. Keep in mind that this is just my guess, I haven't tested it.

Not sure what you mean by that.

Good build turned out really well with the syndicate, there are certainly one-shot phenomenon, but rarely.
Can you evaluate my gear and say that you can replace for better effect,and whether more dps Tombfist?
P.S. sorry for my English: D

You should focus on getting, in order of priority:

Kaom's roots (you would need to find a way to fill up res)
Helm enchant (good helm btw, I need to upgrade mine to the -9 res)
Dying Sun
Tombfists (one socket is fine)

Push your life total up as soon as possible. (6k+)

If possible, get a loreweave with better rolls, and an anger watcher's eye (anger is bad without it, you can run blasphemy+flammability or haste instead if you can't get one).

At 6k+ life with 80% loreweave and wise oak, you shouldn't get one shot except from It that Fled. I suggest testing Atziri's Promise instead of Rumi's. The chaos res helps specially against the syndicate.

Get rid of Lion's Roar, its useless for MS projectiles, and melee damage doesn't really matter. Definitely not worth the flask slot IMO. Also, you should be using Alira's reward, not Eramir's.
