[PoE 3.23] Rage Vortex Berserker League Starter Build: Devastating Force


PoB Link:


The Core Concept

Rage Vortex is all about sacrificing a chunk of your rage to wreak havoc. The trick is to pile up that rage and unleash it strategically. But here's the catch: gaining rage reliably is trickier than it sounds. Chain Breaker and Red Blade Banner have been the go-to choices, but they come with their quirks. Enter Kaom's Spirit gloves – your new best friend for easy and reliable rage generation.


The Rage Vortex Mechanics

  • Clear Speed: Limited to the vortex's travel speed. Two vortexes would be awesome, but hey, one does the job.
  • Bossing: Excellent uptime on damage. Cast it and focus on dodging; the vortex keeps dealing damage.
  • Damage Potential: Surprisingly high with minimal investment. Snapshot your damage buffs with Berserk and Ancestral Totems, and watch the numbers soar.


Dealing with the Downsides

Those gloves aren't perfect. They stop life regeneration, which can be a bummer, especially when you're dealing with the life degen from Rite of Ruin. But don't worry! You can still recover life through leech. Think Petrified Blood or Soul Tether for overleech. Just be ready to invest a bit into leech to offset the life degen.


Eternal Youth and Dissolution of the Flesh

Here's where it gets interesting. Pair Eternal Youth with Dissolution of the Flesh, and you've got a combo that counters the gloves' downside. Your life recharges like energy shield, as long as you're not taking hits. Dissolution turns damage into reserved life, allowing your life to recharge non-stop.


Petrified Blood's Role

Using Petrified Blood is a smart move here. It doesn't care about your current life and starts from your max unreserved life. This means you get its 40% damage prevention across your entire life bar. Combine this with permanent sap and fortify, plus three endurance charges, and you're not just a spinning top of death – you're a tough one to crack.


Synergy with Blood Thirst Support Gem

Low life from Petrified Blood? Perfect for Blood Thirst, which gives physical damage based on your max life. And with Dissolution’s 30% more life multiplier, your life becomes a huge pool of damage potential.


Why Voidforge?

Voidforge might not impress you with its initial physical DPS, but it gives a colossal 300% of your physical damage as elemental. This translates to triple the damage value from your physical hits. Plus, it helps with ailments, thanks to Secrets of Suffering.


Intimidating Cry Synergy

Intimidating Cry and Warbringer supercharge your vortex. Think of it as tripling your damage every time you roar.


Building Your Tankiness

You're tough as nails. Shaper slams? No problem. Fortify and sap have your back, and you're dodging the big hits like a pro. Just watch out for the uber bosses; they're still a challenge.


Managing Damage Intake

Stay unscathed long enough for Dissolution to reset. The trick? Wipe out everything before they can touch you. But be wary of damage over time – it's your Achilles' heel.


Gearing Up

  • Mandatory Uniques: Voidforge and Calm's Spirit. Consider Barrett's Girdle for good measure.
  • Life & Leech: Stack life and focus on leech for sustainability.
  • Damage Over Time Mitigation: Reroll maps with burning or caustic ground. Upgrade your pantheon for defense against DoTs.


Budget and Investment

  • For Beginners: Cheap gear works wonders. Focus on life, resistances, accuracy, and you're good to go.
  • High-End Gear: For those looking to splurge, frenzy and endurance charge Grand Spectrums are neat, albeit pricey. Bottled Faith and The Interrogation add some extra oomph without breaking the bank.


This build is a blast for completing the atlas and unlocking your favorite maps. You might not be invincible against essence monsters (some of them are just brutal), but you'll handle most content with ease. Just remember, the build has its limits, especially in uber content. But for a fun, spin-to-win experience, it's a top pick!
