3.11 - Stress-Free PoE! RF HAPPY: No Required Items! 1-Button Play! SSF League Start-End!

Hi Wrecker,

thx for the guide it works out very well. I am not playing ssf, but so far only bought like 3 items. On was Kikazaru Ring so sustain RF asap and my body armor (each 1 c) and a 23% quali Vaal RF (5c). I also was lucky enough to get "normal" Vaal RF in the first Vaal area i entered and pretty much leveled it and then sold it to get the 23% one. Also i am annoyed by the gardening thing, you can craft cool stuff there for RF. Equipment so far: Next will be a better shield i guess.


Cheers and have an nice day!

Which cluster jewel(s) is recommended if any?

Thanks for a great build and for answering questions :)
Hey Haaaaps! You rock! Thanks for your kindness and encouragement! I don't know all of them as I like to play everything SSF, but some that I've noticed are jewels that have Flow of Life, Molten One's Mark, Burning Bright...there are lots of amazing notables to choose from. Too many. i included the list so you can browse through them with "Crtl F". I like increasing Max Resists for RF's sake personally.

Btw should Shield Charge not be able to generate pretty much the same amount of Inspiration charges as cyclone?
Probably, ya. Just make sure you Hit for the sake of Fortify. But ya, for Inspiration Charges, it's the same thing.

Hey folks,

i played a RF quite a few seasons ago and thought i'd have another go. I'm early act 4 and producing somewhere between zero and nil damage even with a 6 link via a tab. I've tried 6 link holy flame totem and 6 link EQ which is slightly better. Anyone find anything that sort of passes for damage?

I get RF isn't a beast out the gate but most packs are laughing themselves to death than anything i'm doing. Tried the first lab and it took approx 8 min just to take Izaro down first encounter. Second was closer to 15. Spikes got me before i could get the ascendancy but that's another story


found a workable solution. Tabula with earthquake, less duration, brutality, melee physical, pulverize, fist of war using a quecholli. Still not great but it's working.. for now
Hey Acme_Havoc! Sorry it's been frustrating. I see you've found a solution. Spells are great if you're ok using mana flasks. Stuff like Firestorm works great in the long run until RF can be maintained.

But if Earthquake is working great for you, sweet. Fireball is also mentioned in the guide cause it's better for single-target damage than Firestorm (without investment).

Hang in there. Once you get the Valako node, RF is a dream.

Hi. Is this weapon "Doryani's Catalyst" good for RF? Currently level 80 and I'm just using "Nycta's Lantern"



Planning to slowly upgrade my gears. Or do you have any other weapon to suggest? I got lucky and got 1 Exalted Orb when I was still finishing campaign so I think I can splurge a bit on gears. LOL
Hey evilsonofgod!

Doryani's is ok for RF. But it'd be pretty easy to find a Rare (or unique) that's stronger for the build. Having a DOT Multiplier on a DOT build is kind of a must for damage these days. (Things like leech, though not explained, only apply to Hits.)

Same with Nycta's. Penetration only works with Hit as well.

Check out Searing Touch. That is a unique that has mods that suit the build well for sure.

Awesome GoldenVirginia! Thanks for your kindness! I'm glad things are going so well for you! Awesome job with your gear and gems! I'd love a 23% Vaal RF :). I really like your gear. You've done very well! I personally love the bonus damage per endurance charge on your weapon even though it'll have to go by the wayside eventually. Great job on your gear! Thanks for the post!

This is my current gear. Im currently level 77, so waiting till 80 to upgrade rings.

I have been extremely lucky in that, ive had a shavs and 2 ex drop!! Ive never been so rich!

Where would you advise I invest in the most? My resists are capped, Im thinking of upgrading the rings first at 80 for life and regen.
Are there any uniques that are BiS?

Thanks for this amazing build!

Hey Wrecker, no apology needed. Got the second ascendancy so i'm all good for RF now. Looking forward to maps and getting some good gear. Having fun with it now. He's quite Tanky and RF is doing the job nicely.

Nice build man. I was able to sustain RF around lv 42, after I did the first lab. Really easy to get there and even easier after. Nice for a beginner like me. I'm levem 70 rn playing on standard, still lacking a glove with 3 Blue sockets and 1 red, and lacking a shield too, If anyone got something I'd be interested. I'm running a tabula rasa with efficacy in the 6th socket, thinking about trying fire trap.
Hi Wrecker - thinking of doing this for my second build of the league.

Was wonder why Anointed Flesh isn't part of the tree, since you path right by it? Another +1 Max Fire Resist seems useful.
Fun fact: The experience penalty in Path of Exile is four times the penalty in Diablo 2 with corpse recovery.
