[2.5 Video Guide] Beginner's Build: Dual Flame Totem, Blood Magic Chieftain [Atziri & HC/SC Viable]

I basically play Self Found, so I am still working on getting a level21 Flame totem gem.

On a semi-related note, I found out that my hard drive had been dying for the last year, and that explained the massive lag issues I was getting. Now that it got replaced the game is far more playable now. I basically quit for two months when the lag became unbearable. Flame totem was the only build that kept me alive when I can barely see what I needed to kill.

As far as resistances go, I am aware that your build overcaps resistance just fine. It's just that with the previous patch I was able to wear a few pieces of Magic Find gear, while I had to take off the Andvarius for now with the 3.0 changes. Being self-found, I don't buy maps and as such had to be careful about getting the most out of each map.

Once again, your build is great, I just miss the good old days before 3.0.

Basically but not strictly? ;)

In this case it's probably better to switch to Incinerate totems, much easier to ramp up the damage damage output. I'd go with:

Spell Totem + Incinerate + Faster Casting + Controlled Destruction + Fire Penetration + Immolate

If necessary, use a Flame Golem with Chance to Ignite, GMP, Echo, to ignite enemies.

Also get an Essence Worm Ring with Anger.

"Basically" in the sense that I don't use the official Self Found mode, because I want to use the stash of items I have stored up over the last few years. My self Found is purely self-enforced.

And thanks for the tips, I already have an Essence Worm ring. I might try Incinerate in the future if I ever get stuck aiming for higher maps.

As mentioned before, Flame Totem only has 25% effectiveness of added damage. So lvl 22 Anger (in Essence Worm) only adds about 32 flat fire damage to Flame Totem whereas Incinerate does not suffer from this penalty, here Anger adds a whopping 127 flat fire damage which will be quadrupled in the final stage.
Hello.

Do you plan to update this build for 3.2. I'm really looking forward to keep playing your build after coming back to game after a break.

I'm trying to focus on this video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7YUD2prtr_U . But I'd love to see them in your well-written guide.

Looking forward to hear from you, thanks for your contributions to the Poe community .)
