Ignite Burning Arrow Chieftain Gear, Jewels, and Flasks

Gear

Capping your elemental resistances is essential and it should always be your top priority in any build; it should be the first thing you do when gearing up a character. Obtaining a 6-link, while very powerful and certainly recommended, can potentially be very expensive (requiring an average of 1500 Orbs of Fusing, obviously depending on your luck); as such, this should not really be a goal for you while gearing up, and you should instead settle for a 5-link until you have enough resources.

Helmet

A rare Helmet is best in slot. The Rare affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (until capped)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 80)
  3. Nearby Enemies have -9% to Fire Resistance (Scorched Fossil Scorched Fossil)

Body Armour

Kaom's Heart Kaom's Heart is best in slot for the build. Before it you can use Belly of the Beast Belly of the Beast or Loreweave Loreweave. Any rare Body Armour with Life and Resistances will also do the work. The Rare affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (until capped)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 100)
  3. % Increased Maximum Life (Elder Prefix)

Gloves

Rare Gloves are best in slot. The Rare affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (until capped)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 80)

Boots

Rare Boots are best in slot since there are no particularly powerful unique ones. For labyrinth enchant, look for “Damage Penetrates #% Elemental Resistances if you haven’t Killed Recently” or “% increased Attack and Cast Speed if you’ve Killed Recently”. The Rare affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (until capped)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 80)
  3. % Increased Movement Speed (at least 25%)

Belt

Dyadian Dawn Dyadian Dawn is one of the best choices when it comes to Belts, simply because it makes your Ignites via attacks burn 35% faster. The Rare affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (until capped)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 80)
  3. % increased Elemental Damage with attacks
  4. % increased Fire Damage (Scorched Fossil Scorched Fossil)
  5. % increased Elemental Damage (Prismatic Fossil Prismatic Fossil)

Amulet

There is no particularly powerful unique Amulet for the build, simply use a well rolled rare one. The Rare affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (until capped)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 50)
  3. % increased Elemental Damage with attacks
  4. % Increased Fire Damage

Rings

Well rolled Ventor's Gamble Ventor's Gamble can be used. Instead you can always use well rolled rare rings. Once you are well capped on resists, you can use Opal Ring Opal Rings as crafting bases for additional damage. The Rare affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (until capped)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 50)
  3. % increased Elemental Damage with attacks
  4. % increased Damage with Ailments (Corroded Fossil Corroded Fossil)
  5. % increased Elemental Damage (Prismatic Fossil Prismatic Fossil)

Weapon

Xoph's Nurture Xoph's Nurture is a very strong unique Bow that works great with the build. You can also go for a rare Physical Bow with at least 350-400pDPS and decent Critical Chance.

Quiver

We are looking for a rare Quiver. The Rare affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (until capped)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 50)
  3. % increased Elemental Damage with attacks
  4. Critical Modifiers

Flasks

Using a Divine Life Flask Divine Life Flask is mandatory for the build; ideally you would want to roll it half-instant with Bleeding removal Suffix. Quicksilver Flask Quicksilver Flask will improve your mobility by a great deal. Coralito's Signature Coralito's Signature can provide a lot of extra damage via Perfect Agony once you have a good amount of Critical Multiplier. The Wise Oak The Wise Oak will help you penetrate more Fire Resistances, as long as your Fire Resistance is the higher than your Cold and Lightning resistance. For the other two flask slots you can improvise, we recommend using Basalt Flask Basalt Flask and Granite Flask Granite Flask flasks for the additional defense. Make sure you roll Curse and Freeze immunity on utility flasks in order to prevent deaths from Strongboxes and maps with Curses in general.

Be sure to check out our Flask Crafting Guide to learn everything you need to know about how to set up your non-Unique flasks.

Jewels

There are no mandatory jewels for the build. We are looking for additional Fire, Bow and Ignite/Burning damage along with some Life.

Regular Jewel Affix Priority

  1. % Increased Maximum Life
  2. % increased Fire Damage
  3. % increased Damage
  4. % increased Burning Damage

Abyssal Jewel Affix Priority

  1. Chance to gain Onslaught for 4 seconds on Kill (at least 4%)
  2. Maximum Life (at least 35)
  3. Adds # to # Fire damage to attacks

    Hello ! does the Xoph’s Nurture really necessary when we have 100% of our Physical Damage converted as Fire Damage with the new Burning Arrow ? I don’t recall that we can stack more damage over 100% (Maybe I’m wrong just asking)

    Also, if we have the Kaom’s Heart, where do we put our 2nd 6 link ? A second bow on our second gear set ?

    And finally, why not using Point Blank ?

    I’m still a beginner to the game, sorry if my questions are kind of ‘silly’ ! :)

    Hey, there is no reason to have a 2nd 6-Link, you just swap the gems between clearing and boss fights. Xoph's Nurture Xoph's Nurture can be used for the 7th link it provides via Ignite Proliferation Support Ignite Proliferation Support and the solid damage the Bow has any ways, but you can use other Bows too. Point Blank is great and you can pick it up, for this particular build I chose to be more of a ranged one since the content is expected to be hard. Always glad to see new players.

    Since blight gonna become core in 3.9 which notable is the best to anoint?
    and what about accuracy? seems like this build is lacking it.

    Hey, you can definitely get something like Versatility or Aquity, but you can spec into those manually too. I’d recommend looking at things like Discipline and Training or Assassination.

    Hey, we focus on updating and keeping text guides fresh, for now we do not have PoB links.

    This guide uses Inspiration Support incorrectly. Inspiration only increases damage for linked skills. Adding it to Blink Arrow does nothing.

    This is true, it only reduces the Mana cost and not necessary.

    The build is a bit gear dependent, so if you are willing to invest go for it. If you are still struggling with currency I could recommend something more budget-friendly.

    Hi, good evening.

    I have but just one question, it’s something I fail to perceive. You use Vaal Burning Arrow, but it needs souls to use it. How do you gather them?

    Thank you, and happy new year! =)

    Hey, souls are gathered while you are killing enemies in a particular zone or take down a big boss’ HP. Happy new year!

    Oh, right. I mean, that’s the part I got it. It’s just that’s not listed how it’s done in this particular build. I mean, just use a four-link normal burning arrow? That’s where I need some clearence.

    Just use the normal version of the skill for clearing and then save the Vaal version for single target, you do not have to use two separate gem setups.
