[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

Intro

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.

Pros:
Spoiler

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


Cons:
Spoiler

- 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:
Spoiler

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:
Spoiler

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:
Spoiler


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.



Jewels:
Spoiler


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.



Flasks:
Spoiler



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



Skills:
Spoiler

Cyclone:


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:


Misc:



Bandits: Kill all

Pantheon:
Spoiler

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


A few words about leveling:
Spoiler


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.
