[3.19] Righteous Fire Inquisitor Gear & Flasks (PoE Lake of Kalandra) (2022)

Summary – TL;DR

Cap your Elemental Resistances and get the attributes your gems require to make sure you can use them all. Most pieces should be Rare with Life & ES and, of course, any lacking attributes/resistances.

My quick list recommended approach for this build would then be:

Item Slot Item Name Rarity
Head Here we’ll be looking for a preferably Armour/ Energy Shield helmet with Elder influence, Essence of Horror helmet modifier with Socketed Gems are Support by level 16/18/20 Burning Damage & (if you can) Concentrated effect. The level doesn’t matter in particular as long as you can get these modifiers. Beyond this, getting the + level to AoE gems craft will be huge for your Fire Trap. Rare
Amulet Ashes of the Stars is our Best in Slot, but a life amulet with Damage Over Time Multiplier and resistances will do plenty when starting out. Getting +1 to level of all fire/spell gems is also great here if you’re using a rare. The base will be either Jade Amulet or Marble Amulet depending on whether you need the extra attributes or not. Rare / Unique
Chest Preferably a hybrid Armour ES base with high life and some resistances. If possible we want to craft the new Gravicius Mod that now gives “5% of Physical Damage taken as Fire Damage\5% of Physical Damage taken as Lightning Damage”. Rare
Gloves Again we want hybrid Armour/ES with Fire Damage Over Time multiplier, preferably from Eldritch influence as opposed to Hunter. Getting as much life as we can here is good too. You can also hit up to 21% increased Life Regeneration Rate, which is outright isnane Rare
Boots Legacy of Fury This slot is pretty self-explanatory, it gives us huge AoE explosions and applies Scorch to nearby enemies. Unique
Belt A decent Leather Belt or Stygian will do us well here, getting modifiers like “+100 Life regenerated per second” & the “Increased maximum life” from Elder/Warlord influence is huge if you can get it, it’ll be really expensive to find an influenced Stygian though. Rare
Rings An easy source of Life & Resists, we can craft minimum frenzy charges for some free damage too. Rare
Weapon Here we want Fire Damage Over Time Multiplier, + to Level of Fire/ All spell Skill gems, and generic increases to fire / spell damage Rare
Shield Preferably a high Armour / ES shield with +to maximum fire resistances, and increased fire damage / level to all fire spell skill gems depending on what you can get. Rare

Armour Pieces

Helmet

As mentioned above, we’ll be looking for a Rare helmet with Elder influence. Using Essence of Horror for “Socketed Gems Deal 30% more Elemental Damage” is key.

Getting the required green sockets on an Armour/ Energy shield base might seem difficult, but you can significantly reduce the cost of this by setting the first 2 sockets to green using the Crafting Bench, followed by crafting 3 sockets -> 2 sockets until you hit the 3rd green. After this the final red socket should be easy to hit by repeating the 3 socket -> 4 socket crafts.

Elder influence gives us access to Socketed Gems are Supported by level 16/18/20 Burning Damage & level 16/18/20 Concentrated effect. The level doesn’t matter in particular as long as you can get these modifiers. Beyond this, getting the + level to AoE gems craft will be huge for your Fire Trap.

BODY ARMOUR

If we’re in a trade environment, you can pick the Emperor of Purity cards early on to secure yourself a decent 6 Link with the right attribute types, slap an Essence of Loathing on it and try to get an open prefix for the new Gravicius Mod that now gives “5% of Physical Damage taken as Fire Damage\5% of Physical Damage taken as Lightning Damage”. You don’t have to get the highest roll from the Essence to make Auras fit. But when you go for the high budget with Aegis and Melding you want to use Deafening Essence of Loathing

GLOVES

hybrid Armour/ES with Fire Damage Over Time multiplier, preferably from Eldritch influence as opposed to Hunter influence. Something like the pair below will be huge.

BOOTS

Legacy of Fury is our undisputed best in slot, before this we just want Movement Speed, Life & Resistances.

BELT

Replica Soul Tether or a rare belt similar to the one shown below. Capping resistances is a must so if you can get some here its great. Getting increased effectiveness of Life and Mana Modifiers from Quality is huge for both the life & regen

If you can get a Stygian Vise you’ll be able to push a bit more out of it with a decent Abyss Jewel with life and resistances.

The current one I’m using at the time of writing looks a little bit like this.

JEWELS

Getting a Cluster Jewel will give us access to efficient damage increase nodes and 2 great notables, Master Of Fire is insane if we don’t have any other way of inflicting Fire Exposure. Getting a Brutal Restraint is possibly the easiest way of sorting out the Dexterity requirements on this build, we’ll be placing it in the Templar Area since we get to tag a significant amount of passive nodes that we pick up regardless. Divining it for Resistances & Dexterity on Notable Passive Skills can fill in the requirements further and ease gearing, though this can get rather expensive.

Accessories

AMULET

Ashes of the Stars Will be our best in slot, it can be EXTREMELY expensive so if you want to settle for a Rare, I’d go for something like this with life, Level of Intelligence Skill gems / Fire Skill Gems, and DoT Multi if you can.

RINGS

As mentioned above, we want all the resistances, life, and any damage we can get here, whether it be from an “increased fire damage” modifier or a minimum Frenzy Charge. Getting an Opal Ring base inherently gives us a respectable increase in fire damage, but it isn’t necessary.

Weapon

While the weapon shown below is what can be expected for early mapping, it can be pushed further with + to level of Fire/Spell skill gems, the Fire Damage Over Time Multiplier, and any other generic increases to fire damage we can get.

Shield

Maximum Fire resistance & Life on an Energy shield base will take us where we need to be for the life based setup. Getting + level of all fire spell gems & increased fire damage is optional but nice to have too.

Rise of the Phoenix and Ahn's Heritage are very easy be-all fixes for maximum fire resistance early on if you’re struggling to sustain your Righteous Fire. The former can be farmed with cards or bought on the Trade website for basically nothing, though Ahn’s wins out in the long run.

Flasks

Flask set-ups are almost always a matter of personal taste when it comes to what utility flasks to use. However, I will list the set-up I’ve been using for a smooth play experience. To find the available list of modifiers the flasks can have, check out these links: Utility Flasks, Life Flasks, Mana Flasks & lastly: Hybrid Flasks

Slot Flask Description
1 Divine Life Flask or Quartz Flask Life flask, preferably with instant recovery, this can be switched out for a Quartz once we have roughly 1.1k positive regen
2 Granite Flask Getting the “Gain X charges when you are hit by an enemy” prefix will allow us to easily sustain this flask permanently, the increased armour during flask effect suffix synergises well with it too
3 Amethyst FlaskThe “Gain X charges when you are hit by an enemy” prefix here will be huge here too, the Catarina craft for some extra life regeneration during flask effect is great but not super necessary if you can’t get it immediately
4 Quicksilver Flask Yet again, “Gain X charges when you are hit by an enemy” is king on the Prefix modifier, getting a movement speed suffix is great just to give yourself a bit more zoom zoom.
5 Ruby Flask You’ve already guessed it, we want to Gain charges when hit by an enemy to make sure we keep up the reduced fire damage taken. The suffix here is a free choice.
