Righteous Chieftain – detailed build guide – Path of Exile (3.8 Blight)

BIG Game Discounts

Righteous Fire after changes feel great. Guardians and Shaper went fine. Enough damage for blighted maps but it is not that good for blighted encounters in general. Pretty cheap build, could be starter with some cheaper items, only need up to 5 link Carcass Jack armour. Overall very happy with this build and would recommend.

  • Hi . I'm thinking of making a low life witch rf. Can a person make a rf without the gear ? Or would rf be weak and also kill me without deactivating ? In other words can I use only mf gear and live on weak maps ?

  • Hi there, how did you manage to get 4 blue and 1 red on your carcass? I’m having trouble with that.

  • Hey dude, I know this is a late comment but, have you tried to use Inspiration for a 6-link? You'd have to replace two or more links but that could work potentially. I'm trying it personally, and at 5 inspiration charges (which is basically always with a mix of flame dash and wave of conviction) it's like having a 40% More multiplier, which is just better than empower level 4 (and way cheaper).

    It doesn't really detract from the lazy RF playstyle, but for pure walking simulator you'd lose quite a bit of damage (25%), although you'd gain AoE.

    Anyway thanks for your videos, you've really improved these past months, happy to see you doing well. Best of luck and keep it up!

  • Wth, a woolfio build and only 1 hp flask? Seems great tho.

    Posted December 3, 2019
  • You seem to play without endurance charges. Are they not worth to be used?

  • Is there a particular reason you don't just run a Kaom's heart?
    On another note, I have noticed Saffel's Frame provides more overall damage mitigation than Rise of the Phoenix with its +4 max res to all res instead of +5 max fire res
    I also wondered why you are using a regular life flask, I have found that forbidden taste is much more useful because healing flasks provide an insignificant amount of health.

  • i think the changes to RF are smart from GGG perspective , now you start with less damage but with the new mods that increases fire damage Overtime multiplier you can potentially deal more damage in the end game compared to before only if you are willing to sacrifice some of your tankiness to scale that damage.
    this promotes RF to be more challenging and less boring since you can't tank everything and deal high damage at the same time.

  • Hi. I really want to try ur build and RF for the very first time. May I ask why not herald of ash? 15% more + 20% increased fire damage right? for 25% reserved, isnt it a good deal?

  • Would the newly revamped Inspiration support be worthwhile with Righteous Fire? Stick it on both RF (so it can benefit from the Inspiration charges) and on your Scorching Ray or movement skill (so it can generate the Inspiration charges). It's better than giving up two links to Arcane Surge + Swift Affliction, and it's more damage than Efficacy on a 5-link. Inspiration charges only last 10 seconds and they do drop off periodically from mana expenditure, so Inspiration support might not be consistent enough if you use it on a movement skill to generate the charges.

  • Nice. RF has such long history in poe, it was scary reading the changes. Still on my chaos totems hierophant. Blight (the spell) and chill slows everything down to a crawl which makes blight encounters rather safe. I have blight 4-linked and soulrend in another 4-link. Main damage comes from selfcast soulrend on a 6-link. I find self casting allows for faster and more enjoyable clear but the utility from totems in blight league is pretty fun and powerful.

    Posted December 3, 2019
  • very good. I loved your variation of righteous fire

    Posted December 3, 2019
  • Really good build! RF and SR here have nearly 2m Shaper DPS together if RF is 6 linked, both skills have all gems at maximum level and counting Skitterbots' Shock. GJ!

  • Yes, skitterbots are incredible! I am doing melee Elemental Hit right now, going full fire conversion. The skitterbots chilling and shocking enemies give a total of like, 40% more damage in the end for elemental Hit.
