Mathil as just released a new video, he goes back to one of his favourite Skills and put it to test again in Delve league. The Magma Orb Gloomfang Inquisitor looks impressive, the build is cheap, strong against everything he faced so far and super easy to play. Here’s what you need to know to start playing with it.
+ Crazy AOE
+ Map Farming
+ Easy to Level Up
+ Insane Damage
– Play Style is not the fastest when compared to other builds.
Passive Tree & Bandits
Gear / Links / Gems
Mathil went with a Prophet Crown with Eternal Labyrinth enchantment “Magma Orb Chains an additional 2 times”. The choice to use Energy Shield, in my opinion, was due to lack of better gear since he takes near to none of the Passive Tree. The enchantment is a no-brainer, this will empower Magma Orb so much it would be crazy not to use it. You should be looking high rolls both on Maximum Life and Elemental Resistances. At the time of this review, a good helmet without the enchantment on Delve was around 20 Chaos! Click here to get yours. It will cost you a couple of exalts to get it with the enchantment.
The specs on the Body Armour are far from impressive, I’m pretty sure the only reason for this choice is the Shaper Mod. An added 1.38% to Spell Critical Strike is no joke later in endgame. To get this Mod you need an Elder Body Armour, spam Alterations until you get it and Regal it. Only item level +84 will give you the best rolls. At the time of this review, prices started at 50 chaos. Click here to get yours.
For the Gloves, you should again be looking for Shaper Mods. This time Socketed Gems are Supported by Level # Faster Casting / #% Increased Cast Speed. Only item level +84 will give you the best rolls. Add Maximum Life and Elemental Resistances and it will cost you at least 50 Chaos to get a pair. Click here to get yours.
A basic pair of boots, the standard 30% Increased Movement Speed, Life and Elemental Resistances. Later in league you can get a lot better boots than this ones. If you can afford it go with the Eternal Labyrinth enchantment 16% increased Attack and Cast Speed if you’ve Killed Recently. Prices start at 35 Chaos. Click here to get yours.
The Staff is one of the pieces that makes this build so strong. Again we have a Shaped item with Socketed Gems are Supported by Level # Power Charge On Critical Strike mod. Both Elder and Shaper Staffs have a chance to roll this one. The +2 to Level of Socketed Fire Gems is a must have. Any mod that gives Spell Damage or Critical Strike will boost Magma Orb. There was a very limited supply of this Staffs on poe.trade, you will be lucky to get one cheaper than one Exalt. Check current prices here.
The crown jewel for this build is obviously the Gloomfang amulet. Look for Projectiles gain 20% of Non-Chaos Damage as extra Chaos Damage per Chain. For the Rings mods get % increased Fire Damage, Maximum Life & Elemental Resistances. You may need to craft stats on them like Mathil did to meet the requirements of Skill Gems. For the Belt, the Stygian Vise is a great choice, since you can buff Magma Orb dps even further with a good Jewel.
The setup for the flasks is really straightforward. You get one Life flasks, one QuickSilver, and three damage boosters. Links below.
Magma Orb is a really fun to play skill, the explosions will fill all your screen and you will be allowed some mistakes due to the insane area of effect and dps. The only mandatory items for this build are the Staff and the Amulet, you can try different combos with the other items and go with what feels best for you. Just keep your flasks up as much as possible and when facing a worthy opponent take a step back, chill and let the orbs chains do the rest.
Hope this review will help you level your character. If you like it give it a thumbs up and share it.
