I do not claim my guide to be original or the best or even this build to be super efficient. I write guides mostly because I'm fond of my characters and I'd like to share them.

I also stream sometimes.


=======================================================================

Hi, this my third build guide.

Pros:
Really tanky. (6.5k+ hp, 10 end charges, 84k armour, 10k molten shell)
Good single target.
Not really expensive, except for xoph's blood.

Cons:
Okayish clearspeed.


Introduction
Spoiler

I wanted to try Molten Strike for its busted single target. Ancestral call makes clearing bearable. This used to be a chieftain up until 3.7. Post MS nerf, I decided to go super tanky and check how to dps is. The dps is fine.

The highlight of the build is its tankiness. As mentioned in the FAQ, with insane amout of armor, we're effectively immune to phys damage and molten shell gives us a 10k shield which briefly makes use immune to all non-dot damage. As a softcore player, this is the tankiest build I've ever made.

Weapon:

Well rolled nebulochs. Has good synergy with JUGG. Make sure your fire res is capped when using these. The degen hurts.

Budget option: Regular Nebulochs are pretty cheap.


Helmet:
Spoiler


BIS - +2 Molten Strike Projectiles. (rip +3)

Fossil crafted -9% fire res helm. Ideally get the % phys taken as fire prefix craft.

Budget option: Anything with life, res, int.


Chest:
Spoiler


You could go for any heavy rare armour chest for the res. This is our most important slot to get a lot of armour in.

Budget option: Any rare chest.


Gloves:
Spoiler


Life, res. Capping res might be a struggle with the number of uniques in this build, unless you're using a rare chest instead.

Gripped best base. Flat phys and attack speed are luxuries.

BIS - Fury. Helps with clearspeed.

Budget option - Anything with life, res.


Boots:
Spoiler


Lot of life, with stun, freeze and temp chains immunity.

Good enchants/corruptions - Regenerate 2% of Life and Mana per second if you were Hit Recently / +1 Maximum Endurance charges

Budget option - Anything with life, res.


Amulet:
Spoiler


Life, full fire conversion, strength and 20% increased fire damage taken. BIS.

Budget option - Anything with life and res.


Belt:
Spoiler


Look for WED roll, after you cap your resists and get life.


Rings:
Spoiler



Look for well rolled ones.


Flasks:
Spoiler



You need to have your uncapped fire res as the highest for Wise Oak, if you're not using Dying sun.


Jewels:
Spoiler


You should get some crit strike chance on your jewels so EO proc is more consistent.


If you have one. Insane dmg boost from one item.

Chest:

I prefer combustion over Ele Focus, helps to clear better, for very slight dmg loss.

I like the concept of your guide! Crazy dps numbers! I'll give it a go in the near future.

I may go this route since my dual nebuloch is becoming a little more complicated than i expected... How expensive is this build?

If you factor in all the items, its really expensive (around 50ex).

But you can drop stuff like, two socket tombfists, dying sun, +2 proj helm, watcher's eye. Should end up being around 10ex at this point in the league, depending on how expensive rings/belt/amulet you get.

Will build on current League 3.5, if so, how are things with the Syndicate, whether he tancet and breaks?

The syndicate should not be a problem. The damage is more than enough to kill them fast and with 6 endurance charges, wise oak and Atziri's Promise, it should be defensive enough. Keep in mind that this is just my guess, I haven't tested it.

Not sure what you mean by that.

Good build turned out really well with the syndicate, there are certainly one-shot phenomenon, but rarely.
Can you evaluate my gear and say that you can replace for better effect,and whether more dps Tombfist?
P.S. sorry for my English: D

You should focus on getting, in order of priority:

Kaom's roots (you would need to find a way to fill up res)
Helm enchant (good helm btw, I need to upgrade mine to the -9 res)
Dying Sun
Tombfists (one socket is fine)

Push your life total up as soon as possible. (6k+)

If possible, get a loreweave with better rolls, and an anger watcher's eye (anger is bad without it, you can run blasphemy+flammability or haste instead if you can't get one).

At 6k+ life with 80% loreweave and wise oak, you shouldn't get one shot except from It that Fled. I suggest testing Atziri's Promise instead of Rumi's. The chaos res helps specially against the syndicate.

Get rid of Lion's Roar, its useless for MS projectiles, and melee damage doesn't really matter. Definitely not worth the flask slot IMO. Also, you should be using Alira's reward, not Eramir's.

Your english is fine I think. Gl.
