3. Leveling tips

It is recommended to level up this character with Molten Strike and to equip One-handed Weapon and a Shield. You can follow the route to Shadow's part of the Skill Tree and collect a bunch of useful Passives on the way. This way, you won't have to refund too many of the Passives allocatedmaking it the most efficient option. Molten Strike is the best melee skill and will get you to Maps easily, but with the number of items required for this build, we would not recommend it as a League Starter build.

Suggested leveling Gemsetups:

Molten Strike setup
Molten Strike-your primary DPS source. We are using it for the entire leveling process
Added Fire Damage Support- grants additional Fire Damage to your Attacks
Ancestral Call Support- makes Molte Strike hit two additional enemies tripling the number of Magma projectiles fired
Elemental Damage with Attacks Support - grants more Elemental Damage with supported skills
Utility Gems
Ancestral Warchief - summons a Totem which increases your Melee Damage
Herald of Ash - grants extra Fire Damage and AoE explosions based on your overkill damage
Herald of Purity- a great tool for leveling up with this build by adding extra Physical Damage to your Attacks
Leap Slam- the recommended Movement Skill used for this build


We recommend killing all the Bandits for two additional Passive Points

5. Gear Setup

Below you will find all the required gear for this Purifying Flame Chieftain build. Sadly, it does not give you much freedom in terms of item choices, and in order to fully utilize this build's potential, it's recommended to grab all the items listed. You can try to replace some of the items, but without sufficient Accuracy Rating and Critical Strike Chance, you will hardly ever trigger Spells making this build feel very clunky. If you would still like to try it with fewer restrictions - Assassin may be a better option.
