POE 3.22 Blade Vortex Fire Chieftain Build: Blast Maps, Tank and Uber Bosses


PoB Link:


Build Overview

Our goal with this build is to tackle Uber content with remarkable efficiency while maintaining a top-tier map-clearing capability. The key to our success lies in leveraging the Sublime Vision unique item, which enables us to convert nearly all physical and elemental damage to fire. This setup allows us to stack up to 90% maximum fire resistance, reducing incoming fire damage while transforming it into a powerful source of damage output. Combined with additional fire damage buffs, AOE explosions, and potent life regeneration, this build truly shines in both single-target and area-of-effect scenarios.


Build Mechanics

The core mechanics of this build revolve around converting the majority of your damage to fire and maximizing your fire resistance. This is achieved using the Dawnbreaker shield and Sublime Vision notable on the skill tree. By investing in these mechanics, you'll be able to tank fire damage effectively while dealing substantial fire damage in return.


Essential Gear

  • Dawnbreaker Sceptre: This is our cornerstone item. Look for one with 20% cold and lightning damage taken as fire. The ideal roll is 20/20, but you can tailor it to your budget.
  • Shield with Max Fire Resistance: Acquire a shield that offers max fire resistance and has open mod slots for crafting. Crafting mods like "Max Fire Resistance" is essential for maintaining high fire resistance.
  • Tempered Flesh Jewel: To gain +1 Endurance Charge and maximize our survivability, we need an optimal setup with the right mod rolls. Consider options like "+1 Endurance Charge" and "+Physical Damage Converted to Fire."

  • Assailum Helmet: With added fire damage and strength, this helmet adds a significant boost to our build.
  • Influence Unique Chest: Find a chest that provides fire resistance and "Physical Damage Taken as Fire" to amplify our fire conversion and defense further.


Auras and Skills

  • Tempest Shield: Grants spell block and become our main source of block chance.
  • Heralds of Ash and Purity: These heralds contribute significantly to our damage output, adding explosive effects and extra fire damage.
  • Enduring Cry and Immortal Call: These skills synergize beautifully, allowing us to consume Endurance Charges for temporary damage reduction and leech.


Skill Gems

  • Flammability (Curse): Enhances our damage by lowering enemies' fire resistance.
  • Shield Charge: Our primary movement skill for traversing maps quickly.
