Honest Abe's Fire3 Blaster Build

Recommended Posts

This is Honest Abe's Fire3 Blaster Build.  I'm a big fan of it.  I figured anyone who is thinking about rolling up a Fire3, might want to look at this, and tweak to their liking as they need, but it's damn good...

My name is AIB and I approve this message.

 

P.S.

 

(You might want to put Ragnarok in Fire Breath.)

32.5 m/r/aoe def, that's the way to do it Abe! You might get some flack for not taking burn or hot feet but I've seen the build in action (as you know) and it works fine. Hot feet would be cool to work in since the slow would stack with RoF but we'd have to move some things around and maybe drop Melt Armor or RotP to do so... and maybe steal some slots from flares...

Hi.  Thanks for contributing to this board. I haven't seen many Fire^3 discussions.  I haven't contributed much myself, so I took this opportunity to post my current build.  I don't know how many times I've tweaked it recently or over the years.  I get almost as much fun playing with the Hero Planner (currently Mid's Reborn) as I do playing the game.

 

This build is a lot more offensive-heavy than yours is.  I had a build with Tough and Weave in it, but I ended up sacrificing some of my defense and resistance for more offensive powers, slots, and buffs.  The build has a 40% global damage bonus, for example.  It does help that I almost always team with my spouse, a Dark^3 defender, but we tend to chew through the bad guys at +1 x2.  We're still only at 43, working our way back to incarnate status slowly.

 

I actually have the new Experienced Marksman set in Blazing Bolt now instead of the Sting of the Manticore set shown.  With this and the new Fast Snipe ability I was able to make this one of the primary powers in my attack chain (along with Blaze, Fireball, and Fire Blast) with 0 activation time and 4.15s recharge time.  

 

I was curious why you put the full Preventive Medicine set in Cauterizing Aura.  With two Health IO's I get the same 35 HP every 2s, and two EndMod IO's mean I have almost no endurance issues even with Hot Feet on all the time.  I still have Consume for those occasional AV or Sapper fights and a little more AoE goodness.  I think you will be running out of endurance a lot with your build.

I like the bonuses, though I am happy that you have determined another way to slot which you find to be satisfactory.  I have talked about a few of my choices in a previous post.  Here is a link to it...

Ah! Thanks.  I hadn't seen the more recent posts there.  I'll look at them now.  And, believe me, I'm happy that you found ways to slot that you find satisfactory.  There are many good Fire Blaster builds.  I just wanted to offer up my build in case you or others found value is some of the alternatives.
