Gear

Perandus buckler, the 40% block along with the +4% block from tempest shied will make you super tanky. Use a wand that gives +spell damage% +cast speed% and +mana regen% or max mana. Get a mix between armor, evasion, and energy shield, but lean mostly for evasion pieces to avoid being interrupted while incinerating. Get the cloak of flames to make your incinerate ignite mobs like crazy and avoid having to get much +fire res% on other gear, maybe have some more fire resistance on a ring.

Guide

Keep mobs at a distance, your main defense with this build is your strong offense, you kill creatures even strong rare ones before they get close enough to swing at you more than once. I focused on building the mana regen and cast speed of the build first to ensure i could cast incinerate for long periods without having to use a mana potion at all, once you have clarity it works well. I prefer builds that have little downtime and this build had extremely quick regen to make up for its downtime of the incinerate building up its damage charges and having to stay in one spot while casting it. If you focus on mana regen first before survivability like the build does, you will want to have summon zombies and add minion life or damage so they are worth having, so creatures will focus on your zombies while you give them a heat wave that they can't wave back to cause they are dead. I will add more to this later. please be nice this is my first guide and someone asked me to make this for them because they saw me kickin some arse with it in-game, so I hope you can enjoy it too I freaking love this build!
