[1.1.0] Endgame Incinerate Totem Guide w Videos (Level 91, 57k dps, 8.6k life, 187/116 IIR/IIQ)

I saw you were testing flame totem vs incinerate, did you ever come up with an answer on this?

i made a poe.xyz search for weapon with +2 fire gems, around 50% spell dmg and some 20% fire dmg, cast speed and only thing that came up was ur staff.. lol
wish i had a mirror to mirror it :)

And gonna take ur suggestion and go with lightning coil. It comes pretty cheap at a few chaos for unlinked one.

how much did that staff cost you? :O can't find one with similar stats that is 6l haha. and cool, ill prob be at around 4.5k-5k hp + 400 ish es ;p.


My staff isn't something that can exist by accident. There are too many mods on Staffs. There are only two ways to get a staff like this: make your own or mirror mine. :)

Thanks for the great guide i had already started a dual flame totem (level 68)in nemesis when i found this guide, my damage is ok but mana costs are so high that im leveling a spell totem and incinerate now to give this a try. as im in nemesis ive focused alot more on life nodes and i took mind over matter to be extra safe. Would u know if flame totems end game is more or less than incinerate ?

I'm still levelling a Flame Totem gem. However, at level 15, it's only running 2113 dps (though, it is down a slot), and costs more than 2x as much mana. Since the level 20 totem is about 50% more dps base, we can assume that it'll run about 3100 tooltip for me. My incinerate deals 1200 damage base, and 4800 with 4 incinerate stacks. I'm going to continue to level it to 20, purely to confirm my calculations - but its looking right now as though my suspicions were correct, which is that there is really no advantage to using Flame Totem over incinerate totem.

I intend to make a short video when it's fully levelled summarizing my findings.

imho flame totem is made for a crit based build, since it has a 4% base crit chance as opposed to 0% for incinerate. Although 4% is low, with the totem casting 12.5 times a second, it will crit like crazy, more so with spell crit nodes and critical weakness. By going non-crit with flame totem, we wud just be wasting its best point (fastest casting spell that can crit - cast speed is 3x that of incinerate but lower base dmg)

But I dont like the mana cost and range of flame totem (although the totem itself can be much tankier than regular spell totem support - 30% extra life at 20% gem quality), so gonna stick with the incinerate build for now.

Only concern is voidbearers which rape my totems incredibly fast, and frost wall doesn't seem to block their spell. Using searing bond for killing them at the moment. For killing bosses incinerate is incredible! This build wud be great for doing solo bossruns for MF.

Against Voidbearers, I more use frost wall to limit the number that come within range of the totems rather than trying to block their spells once they're in range.

Also, against both them and Lightning Thorns mages, I find that freezing them via cold snap trap is often easy enough, and gives the totems some time to burn without worrying about getting torn up.

hmm i am trying to make a build for ONLY piety farming IIR/IIQ (domination) and i would like to be able to farm her at around lvl 70 which means 88points...

i tried to modify it but i dont know how muhc reduced maa cost or totem dmg are important... could you try to make me a build for ONLY piety farming with 88 point?

This is reasonable for 88 points. If you could swing some extra resist (hard with IIR/IIQ gear) I'd cut sentinel instead of shamanistic fury. If you have gear with more stats on it than I do, drop some of the stat nodes.

You MIGHT be able to drop arcane efficiency if you can pick up 4 of the 3% nodes (or run one less aura/more mana regen on gear). Basically, look at what your gear has on it other than IIR/IIQ, and let that compensate for the stuff you're removing from the passive tree. I mostly just removed health. If you can get that back, that'd make ya more sturdy.

il probably go:
something like that:

Spoiler
MF ITEMS:
IIQ:
Perandus blazon -(8 to 12)%- belt
Goldwyrm -(20 to 30)%-boots
______
40

IIR:
Ring-30%
Ring-30%
peregrine-10%
Amulet-30%
iir gem-50%
aurzeize-50%
_____
210%



so basically i will only have place on ARMOR/MAIN HAND/OFF-HAND to get HP and 30 cold res and 30 light res( i can probably find some iir/iiq ring wiht ressit too) (the problem will mostly be HP)

Will i have enough HP with 188%HP to do piety runs fast? if i have nearly no HP from gear?
(maybe 200 hp total from gear?)


i modified it liek this:

since i dont need unwaverign stance for piety i dropped it and went to get the 4 life node instead, and i went diamond flesh also. now i am at 196%HP should this be enough?

i'm gonna try with 8% increased mana nodes instead of the reduced mana nodes and see how it goes. Hoping to run arctic armor with this setup, coz build is feeling a bit squishy around lvl 50 with 1.5k life :S
I'm totally deboing some of your mechanics ideas for my chaos incenerate totem build.

Yeah, I mean incin totem doesn't cost anything much while levelling, so I'd focus passives on life. I levelled as a fire trapper so I don't have muhc to offer here.

How is it different than what I'm doing?
