Double dip won't be the case. There won't be initial hit as it is for Flameblast of Fireball ignite builds.

Ele Focus will work.

This skill will be most likely a candidate for 3L or 4L with something like

Elemental Focus + Faster Casting + Controled Destruction

I am skeptical with any use of Spell Echo, Rapid Decay (guess no duration, unless it will get the channeling support), no additive dmg gems, no knockback, no fire pen, no aoe, no projectile. From support gems view, unless there will be a new class of support gems, it will be very limited.
I represent only myself, my own thought and believes. I am individual, not a representative of the community.
I am not speaking on behalf of someone else and I don't get offended by things that have nothing to do with me.
ING: Marxone
Ty for scam <3
For me the links for this would be:

Scorching Ray + Elemental Focus + Faster Casting + Controlled Destruction + Inc Burning and either Rapid Decay or Inc/Less Duration gem depending on how effective duration modifiers are.

and ofc lvl 4 Empower and/or Item Rarity and/or Iron Will for a strength build.

yea you forgot
and yes they said it will have duration tag so rapid decay would work and what about empower 4, or as someone mentioned maybe even increased duration, so you will make worth using 6L I believe

best i can think of now for 6L: Scorching Ray + Elemental Focus + Faster Casting + Controled Destruction + Rapid Decay + Empower lvl 4

GS tree maybe like this:
poeurl.com/PEZ
poeurl.com/PEX
9 sockets = 405% elemental dmg
at lvl 100 u could get +2 sockets for 11 = 605% elemental dmg

but simple and important question, will be able to sustain mana cost without any max mana/ mana regen pasives? we will see

abit changed your tree, lvl 89 with 11 sockets http://poeplanner.com/AAMAAURBQU1CQWdjQWRnUUhCTE1MWVEwZkVTMFVJQmhXSE53Znh5Y3ZLM2dzbkRMUk5aSTZXRHJZT3VFOEtEd3RQZnhCaDBWSFJaMUt5RXl6VGVOUVIxTlNWY1pZWTE4X1psUm5tMmgwYVBKdXFtODdlQTE3dzN5RGdwdURYNFBNZzl1RXhZVjdpcS1NejQ4YWtCR1FWWm83bXVDYnRaeS1vUy1pQUs0LXIyeTE4cmMtdm9yQUdzQm14cTdHMk5BZjFhYll2ZHBpNUZIcjd1dzQ3VHp2RHVfcjhCX3lSZlpJLWVqLUN2NlBnc2NkdmpPSEEtN2hjNFAzSHdJYU9EOG5LazE5VzZ4SFVVektTbC13YjU2RENiR1FMYWktZ0VaeHRBekswNlpYTFlzQTdpenBoclA0WDFfUUlaRHFFS2R0NE5qRGFIMzcAEEFBQUNBQWZRQVFIMEFRQUEAAA==

im just afraid that it will be viable only with spell totems vs bosses because standing still means death, so it means lower dmg (lower casting and one gem slot wasted)

mana stats

ur tree:
+117 to maximum Mana From Intelligence
80% increased Mana Regeneration Rate

my tree:
+131.5 to maximum Mana From Intelligence
+20 to maximum Mana
145% increased Mana Regeneration Rate
33% increased maximum Mana


sure ur tree has 2 more sockets at lvl 89 wich is a lot of dmg

and yeah, i think the main problem with this spell is, that u cant leech

Nice! However, does leech work at all with it?

i totally forgot its burning like with Rightenous fire so you cant leech with it. :(

or caustic arrow, you cant leech from damage over time right? all we can hope that it will have bonus like essence drain...

but it will never be as good as leech...

here is another GS tree, 9 sockets 101% reduced mana costs = 0 mana costs (or do we need "less mana cost" for it ?)

I'm still really really hoping that this works with Spell Echo. However, worst case scenario is, one would use jewel sockets for cast speed jewels.

best i can think of now for 6L: Scorching Ray + Elemental Focus + Faster Casting + Controlled Destruction + Rapid Decay + Empower lvl 4


Still this is probably the best case scenario, though for those playing Chieftain they might want the Ignite for free endurance charge generation so subbing Elemental Focus with Increased Burning might be a thing.

Though I am wondering; since the entire damage of this skill is burning. Dose Increased Burning act like a "MORE" modifier on this skill? Would that make it better than CD or EF?

Still wondering what the Increased Duration & Less Duration supports do to it. Range maybe?
