Infernal Cry Blade Vortex Chieftain. All Content SSF friendly in depth guide. Work in Progress

Infernal Blade Cry

A kinda similar version from someone else with great explanation. Sorry for not finishing the guide.

Morning guys Moorhuhn here.
This build focuses on clearing high end maps very quickly. To achieve this we scale tons of aoe and fire damage to blast the screen with infernal cry.
If you have any questions, ideas or anything else catch me live and just talk to me:

Content Played

The character did manage to take down Sirus A8 and all that comes prior

Infernal cry. Big Boom

Infernal Cry provides cool explosions. And those deal a shit ton of damage.
Because the damage of Infernal Cry is based on the enemy hp the scales only gets better. What this means is that you only have to push single target to pop one enemy and the map bosses.
Another great thing is, that the AOE is scaled by warcry aoe and general aoe which make the explosion quite... huge
The explosion chains up to 1.5 screens away and obliterates everything it paths through. Let it be red beasts, rogue exiles, beyond bosses or many map bosses even. Boom. Gone

Pro's and Con's

+ Good clearspeed
+ Clears t16 maps without gear
+ Very cheap to get started
+ Can be fully funded in ssf through div card farming
+ Great upgrade potential through plantcrafting
+ Somewhat tanky
+ Oneshots mapbosses randomly at times

- Decent single target up until endgame gear
- Not tanky enough for crazy 100% delirium t16 shenanigans
- Needs quite good gear to feel good against Sirus and other endgame bosses
- Fuck proximity shields

5. Farm the bathhouse seeds and get cold, fire, lightning, chaos, life or attack modifiers
6. Plant the seeds and get "Remove X get X" "Augment X" "Remove X" (You dont want remove Y get X) Store these in hortycrafts
7. Fill up to 2 suffixes with "add X" (Block add flat damage if you use "add cold/lightning/fire")
8. Craft "Cannot roll attack mods" (You gain this from the Plaguemaw V encounter) Cost 1 ex

Bonus steps
-Synthesise your bow via t4 plants and pray to god

1. Base Amulet: (Ilvl82) Hunter+Elder
2. Alteration/Chaosspam: +1dex gems
3. Clean the suffixes with plant crafting (Remove for most. For life reg you can remove life add life to move life reg suffix to flat life prefix)(Same for accuracy and leech with attack mods)
4. Add fire resistance with crafting bench and augment fire
5a %fire t1 hit. Go to 8
5b %fire (t2+) / fire over time multi
6. Scour the crafted mod with bench
7. Clean the bad fire suffix with remove fire plant. Back to 4
9. Augment caster mod
10. Reroll caster mod till you hit cast speed t1 (You can roll the tier later if hit bad)
11. Craft dex (Or other mod you need aside from fire mods
12. Clean the bad prefixes with remove plant mods (defence or attack in most cases)
13. Augment fire twice
14. Remove attack mod for #fire to attacks / Remove phys for t2 phys as fire
15. 13-14 untill you hit phys as fire and Fire leech t1
Bonus Steps
16 If you prefer life over leech or gain leech from another source use add life remove life at 13 untill you hit t1 flat life

1. Get a warlord ring base of your choice (Ilvl 80+) (Opal or Vermillion is best)
2. Increase Elemental quality with Turbulent Catalyst to 20%
3. Use Essence of Hysteria for 10% phys as fire

Cheap and fast (Might miss life)
4a. Use "remove NON-FIRE add fire" untill the item has Flammability on hit, Increased fire damage and phys as fire
5a. Item might be full now. If you have "add # fire to attacks" you can remove that via "Remove attack modifier"
6a. Craft life or use "Augment life" and then "Remove LIFE add life" untill t1 life. Go to 8

More expensive but guarantees life
4b. Clean the item via "remove X" and craft
5b. Augment fire untill you hit Flammability and increased fire damage (You can not reroll fire damage for cheap)
6b. Item might be full now. If you have "add # fire to attacks" you can remove that via "Remove attack modifier"
7b. Augment fire for "# fire damage per endurance charge" or "chance to ignite & # fire damage against ignited enemies". When you hit "# fire to attacks" go to 6b

8. If you dont like fire resistance use "Remove fire resistance add cold/lightning resistance". Otherwise
9. Remove cold/lightning to get rid of resistance
10. Augment Caster for cast speed.
11. Remove/Augment life untill t1 life
12. Done

For the second ring you can basicaly do the same. The flammability is wasted but the ring still is very good

Gloves (I added life instead of unnerve because I can not read my own guide)

8b. Augment caster for Unnerve

6b. If you want much life remove/add caster till unnerve is the only prefix

9. Augment life
10. Remove/Add life untill you hit t1 life
11. Augment life for hybrid life
12. Remove defence add life untill hybrid t1
13. Done

1. Get yourself a Two-Toned boot (Ilvl86) Hunter base (Random base for cheap)
2. Alteration for 35% movespeed

If you don't want an immune to freeze flask
9b. Craft cannot be frozen

11. Done

For resistances I recommend cold and lightning since fire can be more expensive

Yes it will use the community fork.
