[3.19]Righteous Fire Inquisitor Build - Odealo's Crafty Guide (5)

Righteous Fire Inquisitor is one of the tankiest builds in the game, your combined Lifeand Energy shield should be8 or even 10k, and with Fire Resistance at 90%, tons of Life and ES Regeneration, Consecrated Ground effect, Armour, Divine Shield, and instant Enduring Cry you can't really die that easily.You won't deal any damage with hits. Your Flame Wall and Righteous Fire deal damage over time, so bury that in mind when linking your Support Gems andlooking for mods on your rare gear.This build uses a six-linked Flame Wall as its single-target damage and RF (Righteous Fire) for clearing. With all your Life and Energy Shield the damage of RF will be enough as a four-link Skill but the Helmet mods will provide you with an additional linkof Support Skill Gem or two. Inquisitor is the best Ascendancy due to the Pious Path - the effect of the Consecrated Ground you create while standing lingers for four more seconds, meaning that you will regenerate your ES alongside your Life which is great for a Hybrid build with Corrupted Soul Keystone - the only condition is to stand still, use a Flame Wall or even Flame Dash once every four seconds.

Righteous Fire has been increasingly more popular as of late, in Path 3.17 Legacy of Fury Unique Boots have been reworked so it scorches nearby enemies and significantly increases your clear speed, it's a mandatory item now. The newMeldingof the FleshJewels allows you to increase all of your Maximum Elemental Resistances to 90%, which is a significant boost to your survivability. Patch 3.19 nerfed this build, it deals less damage and its survivability is also reduced due to many direct and indirect nerfs. It's still good, one of the most popular builds in general, definitely not only playable but very good.

1. Gameplay

It's so safe and easy to run maps with this build you can do it with one hand - you walk and the enemies around you die. Use your Enduring Warcry to regenerate a huge amount of your life in a span of one second and gain some extra damage reduction - be ready to activate it when you expect to take a big hit. To deal with bosses RF will not be enough, that's why you use FlameWall for it works in a similar fashion to RF - it deals Fire Damage Over Time and doesn't Hit enemies. Additionally, a Curse of Flammability and Elemental Weakness will be applied by a Brand. By standing still you'll create a Consecrated Ground - keep that in mind when you run out of Flask Charges as it is really beneficial with your Piety Path from your ascendancy tree.

2. Build's PROS & CONS

PROS
  • safe and simple
  • good clear speed
  • excellent defense- lots of Life, ES, and dual Regeneration
  • cheap to start
CONS
  • not really a boss-killer build, but it doesn't mean you won't be able to kill all the bosses in the game
  • low Chaos Resistance

3. Leveling tips

Leveling RF build is slow. You'll lack damage and before you can sustain RighteousFire you'll need a placeholder Skill. For that, we recommend using Scorching Ray or Flame Wall- thesedon't deal damage per Hit so your DPS won't be impaired by lack of this type of damagein your tree and gear. You can obtainit as soon as level 12 for Scorching Ray and level 4 for Flame Wall. You'll start your tree by taking Maximum Life and Fire Damage nodes right away and as you progress you'll just take more of them. Around act 6 to 10 you should be able to sustain RF. Look for Increased Fire Damage and Burning Damage.

6. Gear Setup

Few Unique Items such as one granting Corrupted Soul and one of the Unique Shieldswill be really important, your rare gear will generallyfocus on accumulating as much Maximum Life and Armour as possible. There are a fewgood mods that will be mentioned, but besides that, the build is pretty basic. Your Fire Resistance should reach the hard cap of 90% - you can then redirect some of the damage you take to take it as Fire Damage via affixes. You will need around 100 Dexterity to run this build, it can be easily found on most Rare Items. Look for Fire Damage, Damage over Time, and Fire Damage over Time. Spell Damage and Ignite Damage will have no effect unless you're using Fire Trap. Fire Trap's DoT is affected by Spell Damage. Also, note that RF does not cost you Mana or Life, so lowering the Cost of Life Skills will not make you take less damage. Chaos Damage is your biggest weakness, but it can also be capped at 75% with the right gear. Forbidden Flame and Forbidden Flesh are useful for Time Of Need Keystone.

Ourrecommended items will:

  1. Cap your resistances at 75%, and Fire Resistance at 90%
  2. Provide you with enough DPS and Lifeto start mapping

[3.19]Righteous Fire Inquisitor Build - Odealo's Crafty Guide (76)(Jewel)Melding of the Flesh- It lowers all your Elemental Resistances by 70 or 80%, but the upside is that your Maximum Resistance for one Elemental Resistance applies to all of the Elemental Resistances - as RF build you can increase only your Max Fire or Cold Res to 90% or close and have all your resistances to be capped at 90% too.

FAQs

What supports work with righteous fire? ›

Elemental focus, Increased Burning damage, and Concentrated Effect are the best supports for RF. There are others that can have lesser effect. I think Efficacy works. The next best thing is to have as much life as possible, and enough fire resist (85% is achievable without flasks) and life regen to handle it.

Does righteous fire scale with spell damage? ›

Righteous Fire is a spell that applies a buff on the player, rapidly burning the player and nearby enemies. The damage it deals scales with your Life and Energy Shield amount. It also grants more spell damage to the user while active.

Can righteous fire crit? ›

Righteous Fire doesn't hit. Critical Strike bonuses do nothing for it. To boost its damage, you want Fire Damage, Burning Damage, Damage Over Time, Area Damage or just plain Damage bonuses, as well as increasing your life (or ES) because it burns based on a percentage of those stats.

Does Righteous Fire proc on hit? ›

On-hit effects: The damage you do to yourself when Using Vaal Righteous Fire is not considered a hit on yourself. Thus it will not proc any when-hit effects such as the trigger from the Berserker's Cloaked in Savagery which requires taking a savage hit.

Does anger work with Righteous Fire? ›

Anger's damage boost is a flat amount of fire damage, and only applies to attacks. Righteous Fire's burn damage is not an attack.

How much life regen do I need for Righteous Fire? ›

I remember that well-geared Righteous Fire builds used to have about 500 to 600 Life Regeneration per Second, and thought those were incredible numbers. Nowadays, you'll easily break the 2,000 Regen per Second mark after the Righteous Fire degen.

No, multiple instances of the burning ground damage from Fire Trap will NOT stack. Only different sources of burning damage can stack. For example, an Ignite debuff from a spell's critical hit and the Fire Trap ground burn will stack.

Does increased Fire damage affect Righteous Fire? ›
