righteous fire inquisitor build guide


Build Main Mechanics and Playstyle

The Righteous Fire Inquisitor build's playstyle in PoE's Necropolis expansion is straightforward yet requires strategic execution. At the start of a map, engage Righteous Fire and manage your flasks effectively while your enemies are consumed by the surrounding inferno. Mobility is crucial, achieved through the strategic use of Frostblink or Shield Charge to maintain the Consecrated Ground regeneration from the Inquisitor's Ascendancy Pious Path.


Proper positioning is essential during boss encounters, keeping the boss on the edge of your Righteous Fire AoE for optimal evasive maneuvers and integrating Fire Trap attacks for efficient boss takedowns. Adaptability is key, especially in encounters like the Guardian Of The Hydra, where close combat and timely use of Frostblink are vital.


When facing larger monster packs, activate Infernal Cry to enhance your destructive capabilities.


Core Mechanics

Righteous Fire Depend on converting your own health value into flame damage. Thus, life and flame damage are the two main pillars of this construction. You need to have high health and high flame damage bonus to achieve sustainable damage output.


Understanding Righteous Fire

Righteous Fire is a spell skill gem that deals consistent damage over time to you and nearby enemies while active. It's important to note that while it carries the "spell" tag, this only refers to the additional spell damage modifier it provides. With the skill active, players must ensure they have adequate fire resistance and life/energy shield recovery to avoid losing life per second.

Each piece of gear listed above has been strategically selected to synergize with the Righteous Fire Inquisitor build's mechanics, enhancing both its offensive and defensive capabilities. Ensuring your triumph in the challenging landscape of PoE's Necropolis expansion. 



League Starter - Though RF can seem daunting to League Start with, it is extremely doable and can be started around level 20.


Easy Playstyle - A lot of content can be done by simply activating Righteous Fire and moving through the zone while using a movement skill/stopping for a split second to maintain Consecrated Ground.


Extremely Tanky - Righteous Fire builds LOVE maximum fire resistance, and with the right setup you can push over 85% max resistances on this build along with over 6k EHP that is a combination of life and energy shield.



Weak Early for uber bosses - Our primary bossing ability will be Fire Trap, unfortunately, the average player will be around 2m - 2.5m Dps & the PoB goes up to 6M but its a bit unrealistic to go past 10M DPS without some crazy investment.


Map Modifiers can be annoying - Max Resistance, Less Recovery & No Regeneration are all pretty awful for this build. Later on, well also be skipping-Reduced Aura Effect & Less Block Chance.


Always face tanking - While the RF Area Of Effect is formidable, we will, for the most part, be in melee range, knowing when to back off a tiny bit and play patiently is important.


In conclusion, the Righteous Fire Inquisitor build offers an exhilarating gameplay experience in PoE's Necropolis expansion. With a direct playstyle, strategic positioning, emphasis on mobility, and adaptability, players can efficiently overcome challenges while staying alive. The key to success lies in astute gear selection and skill tree progressions, prioritizing enhancements that boost fire-based damage. By following thorough this guide, players can become experts in this build and conquer the challenging yet rewarding world of Necropolis.
