[PoE 3.23]Detonate Dead Chieftain Build Update: Versatile & Deadly


Build Basics

  • No More Righteous Fire: We're steering clear of it due to tricky situations with less recovery from altars.
  • Endurance Charges: Still a big yes! We're not dropping these bad boys.


Jewel Jugglery

Immutable Force + Bloodnotch Combo: The heart of our build. Immutable Forces for that sweet stun and block recovery, and Blood Notch for a whopping 60% recovery from stun hits. Aim for a high roll on Immutable Forces, ideally 950+.


Triggering the Magic

Stun Mechanism: Spec into energy shield and its mastery to ensure every hit stuns you, triggering our stunning recovery mechanism.


Life Recoup & Anointment Changes

  • Life Recoup Additions: Grab some life recoup nodes for that extra survivability.
  • Vampirism Anointment: A great choice for additional life recoup.


Chaos Resistance Strategy

Cluster Jewel Swap: We're relying on a small cluster jewel for chaos resistance, aiming for a 35% increase.


Avoiding One-Shots

Additional Mitigation: We've got strategies in place to avoid those pesky one-shots, even in super tough maps.

Getting Stunned Intentionally

Gem Links & Pantheon Powers

  • Detonate Dead & Cast When Stunned Support: A killer combo that automates our explosive mayhem.
  • Pantheon Swap: Switch to Soul of Lunaris for damage reduction and Arctic Armor for physical and fire damage reduction.


Budget-Friendly Setup Tips

Don't Sweat the High-End Gear: You can still set up this build on a budget. Focus on the essentials like a good roll on Defiance of Destiny and a Fulcrum staff.


The Build in Action: Walk up to enemies, and let the chain reaction of explosions do the rest. It's as satisfying as it sounds!
