YouTube Build Guide + Gameplay : Ignite Devouring Orb Miner Void Knight, Hundreds Of Ignites In A Burst, Last Epoch Build Guide - YouTube
Hello, this is Dr3ad from Epoch Builds. In today’s forum topic we will go over Ignite Devouring Orb, an overpowered skill with an underpowered ailment.
So the idea of this build, is it feels a lot more like a miner from Path of Exile. We lay our devouring orbs down on the ground, and we can proc the void rift’s from them Abyssal Echoes. This combination allows us to clear packs buttery smooth and also stack a lot of ignites on bosses. Sadly its ignite, so my ceiling for my gear was like 200k dummy dps, but thats very impressive for an ignite build, especially since I had no fire shred from Shamans.
Obviously the version that PerryThePig played to 400+ corruption in hardcore is much better but its also abusing bugs, which we are waiting for the nerfs so we can see how strong that build is without the bugs. Ill explain what those are in the skill section. This version, the ignite dev orb is not using any bugs whatsoever, so even when they enevitably fix the bug, this build will be untouched.
Normally I would give a detailed leveling guide like I have for the last 2 builds, but I would heavily suggest to respec into this build, as we require maelhins hubris to function, and Fiery Dragon Shoes to feel good. We also want the ignite duration affixes on our helm and chest, which boost our single target significantly, so I would not suggest playing this as your first build. You could either play my VK warpath setup, the Erasing Strike/VC setup until you have the stuff ready to go.
Now to farm said uniques, I would go to Ending The Storm to farm for glove unique/set rewards, and Spirits of Fire for unique/set boots. Both of these should not take that long to farm for.
This build definitely blew me out of the water for how much damage it is doing, but I guess devouring orb is so insanely strong it can literally carry one of the worst ailments in the game. Hopefully one day they buff ignite. One problem I have with this build, as do some of my friends who play devouring orb, it doesn’t matter what kind of devouring orb build your playing, the animations are so cluttery that it all ends up looking the same. Maybe we can have some kind of MTX or node inside Devouring Orb that turns it into a fire spell, that would be insane.
This kind of build is different than most ailments, as it actually has more of a combo playstyle than a hold button until things die kinda thing like most ailment builds like warpath, serpent strike etc look like. When we do the combo right we get insane amounts of damage (for ignite), and during Beacon monoliths we can fill the entire screen with purple void fire which is also neat. Kinda feels like Glacial Cascade Miner from PoE.
