3.3 Budget Ignite Fireball Trickster SHAPER VIABLE w/ VIDEO

General
Fireball got buffed and so did ignite (sort of), so I went ahead and made an ignite fireball character. It has defeated T15 Elder, Shaper, and all 4 guardians.

Gear + Visible Gems


Gem Links

1. Fireball + Deadly Ailments + Ignite Prolif + Burning Dmg Support + Combustion + GMP/Swift Affliction
2. Vaal Flameblast + Immolate + Concentrated Effect + Controlled Destruction (Maybe Ele Focus is worth throwing in there for one of these gems, but I didn't really care too much)
3. CWDT + Immortal Call + Inc. Duration
4. Herald of Ash + Clarity + Stone Golem
5. Orb of Storms + Curse on Hit + Flammability + Inc. Crit Strikes
6. Shield Charge + Fortify + Faster Attacks


Why Orb of Storms?

1. To proc Ele Equilibrium for your ignite damage
2. Linking it with Inc. Crit Strikes helps to proc Ele Overload if you haven't done so already
3. Adds another layer of enemy fire res reduction with a curse on hit + flammability setup


Bandit?
Killed All.


Why Trickster?
Because I didn't wanna be like the cool kids going Elementalist. Also, the shadow starting area seemed to make more sense to me since I wanted to start playing with ignite asap. Trickster also provides very nice mana sustain for single target fights and mapping.


Why Herald of Ash?
I initially thought this would scale my overall ignite dps but it turns out that it didn't, so now my justification for keeping it is to scale my Vaal Flameblast damage.


Lol, your shield charge does fire damage now because of HoA. Nice Ele Equilibrium
I can always recast Orb of Storms whenever I want and it constantly does trickling lightning damage.


Why do you keep casting fireball even though you want to maximize that fire damage from Ele Equilibrium?
Mostly because I want to proc my Ele Overload and I know that my Orb of Storms will trickle back in that lightning damage to reset my fireball's hit damage.


You think you're so smart because you have a bunch of questions that you assume we're gonna ask
:(


How is Ignite Overall?
Tbh, it clears very well in T15s and T16s. Incursions and temples are very smooth. Ignite isn't at all where it used to be but this buff is fairly decent and completion of end game content is definitely achievable.


Budget?
My entire build cost a little under 300 chaos.

Thanks! I hope it helps!
I am playing Burning Arrow and considering switching to Fireball since I hate investing in Accuracy and Attack speed for the ignite build. Thanks a lot. I am using the Taming and StormFire for the ring slots.
