[3.7] Fists of Fire and Fury | 100% Fire Facebreaker | End Game Boss Killer

Prepare to set Wraeclast on fire!!!

Path of Building link: https://pastebin.com/cbgfQ72j


This build utilizes the Chieftain ascendancy https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Chieftain and a few key uniques to deliver massive fire damage, wicked ignites and solid clear speed. Best of all, with this build you can jump into your end game setup at a low level (Level 28) bringing massive dps to your playthrough. Furthermore, the build's core requires little investment to conquer all content.

How the build works:

Combine the potency of Chieftain's Ngamahu, Flame's Advance (50% physical to fire) with the uniques Facebreaker and The Signal Fire quiver (50% physical to fire), toss in some flat physical damage, and burn down every boss in the game.


- Excellent clear speed and bossing
- Surprising dps with little investment
- Fun play style
- Decent AoE for an unarmed build


- Can't do elemental reflect map mod
- Not as tanky as some builds (physical dmg reduction)
- May require some crafting to economically optimize ring and amulet slots
- Corrupt uniques are highly recommended, but can be hard to acquire

Tree (Level 94):

Hideout w/ totem, flasks and Ngamahu, Flame's Advance up:

Current Gear and what to look for:

Core items:

The only stat that matter on The Signal Fire is the "Gain (25-35)% of Physical Damage as Extra Fire Damage." This unique is plentiful and cheap, so finding one rolled 30%+ should be easy. Corrupt for up to 50% phys as extra fire damage.

Like The Signal Fire, Facebreakers are plentiful and cheap. The stat "(600-800)% more Physical Damage with Unarmed Attacks" is all that matters ... look for something 790%+. +% to max life is a solid corruption.

Rings and Amulet:

Look for added flat damage, then target life and resists as needed. Two key quality of life mastercrafts to also aim for: -mana cost on ring and +1 unarmed range on amulet. Really, the easiest route to great rings is buying a couple steel rings and crafting with Deafening Essence of Contempt.

Armour, boots, helmet and belt:

Loreweave or Bronn's Lithe are best in slot for maximizing dps, but a 6-link rare with lots of life and resists is also a solid, affordable option that can take you deep into end game.

Look for movement speed, life and resists on boots. Attack speed on kill is a nice enchant.

For helm, target life and resists as needed. Physical damage take as an element is also a key defensive mod. Like the amulet, target +1 unarmed range is a great choice for a mastercraft.

Since we use Fortify in our cyclone setup, the unique belt Perseverance frees up a flask slot and gives us 100% uptime for Onslaught. This belt is also very cheap, which means getting a solid corruption (% max life) is achievable.


The Red Nightmare is a great way to generate Endurance Charges, and it also provides some decent dps. In addition to this unique jewel, look for rares with % max life, resists and appropriate dps modifiers.


For anything other than Uber Elder, I go with speed on speed in place of Cinderswallow



For more AoE, swap Increased Area for Conc. Effect ... the build has plenty of dps to run Increased AoE fulltime.

Heralds and Totem:

CWDT Setup:


Bandits: Kill all


Soul of Lunaris
Soul of Ryslatha
Soul of Yugul (for uber Elder)

A few words about leveling:

Level 1-27: Use whatever melee skill you'd like; work way to Vitality Void on tree

Level 28+: Shift skill setup to cyclone and supporting skills; equip The Signal Fire and Facebreakers. Equip new rings and amulet emphasizing added physical damage. Also equip

Regarding the tree, after switching to cyclone, make a b-line for Resolute Technique. Once you have RT, just continue adding life nodes and damage nodes in a balanced way. Feel free to take Vaal Pact at any time.
