↖ Parting Thoughts
While this build is a powerhouse in mapping scenarios, it may not be the best choice for Uber bossing due to the sustain setup. Additionally, although the replica Emberwake might seem tempting, it's potentially a trap for this build.
With Control Blaze's untapped potential and the combination of Shield Charge, this build offers a fresh perspective on mapping in Path of Exile. As with all builds, the key lies in understanding the mechanics and optimizing gear and playstyle.
