holy flame totem in poe 3.6 league is reworked from the flame totem, rapidly fires projectiles. with 50% conversion to fire as physical-based, it is easier to scale into late game than before. although it can cost more than a 150 mana per cast on a 6-link, this problem can be solved by using the blood magic keystone notable.

this is a great starter build in budget, no need initial poe currency investment. mainly focus on well-rolled rare items, it allows you to play the build in an ssf environment. with the good amount of % increased life that is gotten on the passive skill tree, the build will gain a respectable life pool even with little gear. spell damage, physical damage, fire damage, projectile damage, channelling nodes and totem nodes scale the damage. other perks from the chieftain ascendancy class synergize very well with this totem skill in general.

mandatory uniques

the covenant: spidersilk robe

reason: socketed gems have blood magic, so you don’t have to worry about manna; 10% increased maximum life; socketed gems are supported by added chaos damage; use it only after picking the sanctify you’ll always have a huge life regeneration, way more than you need to summon your totems.

essence worm: unset ring

reason: this ring gives you the chance to use an aura without reserving more mana; let’s use it to boost our dps with the aura anger.

recommended rare weapons

when you have some currency, look for sharper sceptres:

- gain x% of physical damage as extra fire and lighting damage, like hypnotic blow tyrant’s sekhem

- increased elemental or fire or spell damage

- as long as you get richer, you can keep buying better ones for more damage, such as woe breaker karui sceptre

recommended uniques

divinarius: imperial skean

reason: divinarius is the budget alternative, it’s super cheap and is grants increased spell damage and critical strike chance; use 2 of them while farming for the poe currency needed to buy those rare sceptres.

winds of change: ancient gauntlets

reason: those gloves are awesome for this build, they grant 30% projectile speed, 50% projectile damage and up to 60 life.

recommend full set of gear

main hand weapon - lead sceptre

offhand weapon - tyrant’s sekhem

helmet - eternal burgonet

chest - the covenant: spidersilk robe

gloves - legion gloves

boots - titan greaves

belt - stygian vise

amulet - onyx amulet

rings - diamond ring & essence worn: unset ring

recommended flasks

divine life flask

reason: your divine life flasks must have instant recover; to maximize your defenses, look for “immune to bleeding” and “immune to freeze and chill” as secondary stats

quicksilver flask

reason: another good choice if you want more speed; best mods for quicksilver flasks are “increased movement speed during flask effect” and “increased duration”; for more crits; look for increased duration and increased evasion as secondary mods.

silver flask

reason: a sliver flask is a great choice for flask, it increases your cast and movement speed; best mods for silver flasks are “increased movement speed during flask effect” and “increased duration”

the wise oak

reason: mainly because the 15% penetration; but remember your uncapped fire resistance must be the highest; keep in mind that if you have the same uncapped value for all 3 elemental resistances, you are going to get the offensive and defensive buff for all elements, just like the avatar.

atziri’s promise

reason: an offensive flask that provides a huge boost to your dps and also increases your life leech; if you don’t have one, you must go to goldkk.com buy your poe unique flasks now, it fits in 95% of poe builds.
