About

This build gather the power of Eldritch Battery and passive fire skills to make horrible fire damage with Incinerate and Firestorm totem.

(Old Edit: This build abuse the power of eldritch battery and avatar of fire to make horrible fire damage with Incinerate or Fireball.) -> (PS: Avatar of fire seems useless for pure fire caster, I removed it. I will try to find better alternative like Arctic Armour)

The gear shown is from actual progression thru Domination League (Path of POE seems not able to display the whole gear).

(This is not the final version how to do this build, constantly adding new progress state from Domination League)

Gear and Weapons

I like the play style of life and mana. I try to collect a lot of life and resist on my gear (and also to have some rarity on it, but this is secondary). The most stuff is self found, I bought the boots and the 5 link staff for a total of 9 chaos. I choose Armour as my main defense, but it is possible to not use Eldritch Battery and take Energy Shield (I don't know how to handle the skill costs in this case). As weapon I took a two handed staff, because it's possible to have 5 or 6 link on it. What worked the best was increased spell damage, as higher as better on the staff.
