Path of Exile

[1.2.x] Crit flameblast "The reflect safe oneshotter" cheap to start, fun to play

Objective of this build : 1 shot almost anything in the game using 1stage flameblast at lategame, even with reflect

How is this achieved ? Crit flameblast with added lightning/prolif and very high crit multiplier + burn damage, which means you'll shock stack and burn everything which deals a lot of damage

The tree
http://poeurl.com/yXgHQke

Take the big crit chance nodes and the burning nodes first, take EB when you have a good amount of ES to run arctic armour and be sure to grab some life on the way, then just finish it up

bandits
Normal : life
Cruel : Skill point
Merciless : skill point

Links
4L : Flameblast + Elemental proliferation + Added lightning + Critical damage
5L : + fire penetration
6L : + burning damage

Curse : Assassin's mark
Arctic armour

Auras : Purity of X + clarity + Tempest shield (those are probably debatable)

Gear exemple
Get mana regen on both rings, get ES gear , crit on amulet and wand

Those are items I had the first week of rampage , here is my current rampage gear with end game gear :
Spoiler


Playstyle
Curse assassin's mark , then do a stage 1 flameblast and sidestep to instant cancel it, repeat until ded mobs. Charge it up to 10 on bosses , pray for crit , and one shot all of them :P

Dealing with reflect/reflect maps
Reflect rare : make sure to not do a flameblast in a tight pack , try to only crit a couple mobs at a time (reflect zombies and crabs are p dangerous for that)

Reflect maps : Swap out Fire pen for life leech
Reflect minus max maps : Also swap out crit damage for crit chance

How to run arctic armour
First, you NEED Eldritch Battery.Check your mana regen with clarity, then go to http://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Arctic_Armour and then add all the Base mana/s and the mana when moving and see if you have enough mana regen. Just run the highest you can with your gear

Can I do atziri with this ?
no.why the fuck is she ignite immune ffs

Hardcore viable ?
Yes ! Exemple from TheUberElite :
"
doing this on HC tree isn't very different but I'll post it, currently 79 just got the 5L

44.8 crit, 515 multi, 3545.4 avg damage with level 17 gems atm.

Working on my mana regen atm, need to get higher for better AA, thats my only concern.



Anything I forgot ? Questions ? feel free to ask here :)

You seem to be using nothing but es, but no es nodes taken. Very few ppl will have that armor (much less 6 socket armor). will the build still work without that gear?

Dude , infernal mantle is VERY VERY cheap (around a chaos each) and you can have gear that works for not that much (although you won't have as high arctic armour as I do)

The gear given is just an exemple , no need for 6L for this build to work well :]

How often do you drop into low mana with this build? I was watching your stream last night and I noticed that you're almost always at full unreserved mana. I'm going to run this build in the two week HC race, do you think it is safe to run PoF and Vitality and maybe grab a 5% reduced mana reservation node between Shadow/Witch? That puts me at about 45% mana unreserved with reduced mana gem, what do you think about that?

Mana cost of flameblast is very low, your mana will never move

So as long as you are above 35% , you're good (well maybe not at 36-37 but 40+ is fine :p)

Clarity is nice for extra AA levels though, which I would largely prefer over purity of fire (never underestimate AA, this shit is insane)

Yeah I was going to run clarity too, I think I should still be able to have 40% unreserved with EB.

I came up with this build: http://www.pathofexile.com/passive-skill-tree/AAAAAgUABVuLjJ_f4XM8Be0g73xG14M4XcYUTbUEBLOiAOQi8B8pTxpsjmTsOIKbna4ZhfPd96YaOKcIEmkkqrb6p4TYJI9GFxw26ZBVNsXQ0IFJcXnjah8CNtjPZbI4BAecLSqNVcZmT5eVh2WXhRZvUlOvt-xVPV-PpkkbLR8snG0ZRX7B8w5coqOCHhB0f8aIQtsLCPQnqRGW8h15A1ptnaMOSHC7wFQxiCQ8_KvjhJ2qp1xe-sBRYqxJUY_6cNXWnUk7XfJwUjZ7nWO0o-WOpLGMNlVLJpU=
262% life which is pretty good, but a lot less damage.
Been messing around with this build in the 2 week and it's going great, having a blast (excuse the pun). I must have been blessed by RNGesus because a random rogue exile dropped maligaro's so I just need to find an infernal mantle now. Currently using Flameblast - prolif - fire pen - chance to ignite in a 4link since I skipped a lot of the crit nodes while leveling with searing bond.

I was wondering what you use for your flasks? I was thinking dual seething life, quicksilver, granite, and ruby but I'm curious about what you use. Also, is it worth it to roll specifically for Surgeon's with this build or no, seeing as each flameblast crit only grants one charge?

Also, made a few more changes to my tree: http://poeurl.com/yN9S7qW . I think it is better to path through the witch area going through the spell damage nodes rather than the radius nodes, you gain 20% spell damage at the cost of 4% radius and 10 int. Also, I'm considering dropping the radius nodes around Amplify in the templar area to grab some more armor/es nodes, but I'm worried that losing 20% radius will make my prolif range too small? I was watching your stream and you prolif range seems ridiculously large, how bad do you think losing 20% radius will be?

Finally, how do you deal with reflect rares? I'm worried that if I do a fully charged flameblast crit I will oneshot myself, so I've been using searing bond to kill them but the clear speed is a lot slower. Have you ever ripped to reflect? I did some basic calculations and it seems impossible to oneshot yourself on a single mob but I wanted to see what your experience is.

Flasks : Dual seething , quicksilvers , 1 armor granite , 1 curse immune granite

As for the tree , losing 20% radius would be a pretty big deal , also losing the area damage is kinda not cool. Would probably still be decent without , but I'd rather have it

Reflect ? Just do one stage which is what this build is made for ;p You rarely do 10 stages except for bosses. If it's tight pack of zombies and shit, aim your flameblast at a couple mobs so you don't hit them all at once, and let prolif do the work. I did kill myself like 2 times, but both it's because I was a retard ;p
