Which class sounds proper for fire/burn builds? Of course it’s good old Pyromancer. But these pyromaniacs are often outclassed by Purifiers, Shieldbrakers or Sorcs. So here’s something weird, that should not work. It’s caster with multiple spells on CD and devotion procs, lot’s of them.

Decided to use Infernal set and always wanted to build around Tome of Atonement off-hand, which isn’t that strong item. But was buffed and here it is! DEE have almost 5 seconds CD, so decided to skip it and use Sigil for sustain. Other gear I am using:
Weapon - Grim Fate. Useful mod on Mines and also boost Sigil. Really decent weapon.
Relic - Korvaak. I use the skill as nuke with high WD, also nice stats stats across the board. And I need the DA and OA.
Medal - BWC support.
RIngs - Little bit awkward. Converting the Bat damage is nice, also both are covering my resistances.
Amulet - Conduit for RR to Curse of Frailty.
Pants are for slow and Boots for stun. Also nice bonus on mines, DA and OA, proc to help defensively. Gloves are suited for Demo caster.
The idea is stack multiple damage effects on target. BWC, Korvaak relic proc, devotion procs, etc. Build is powered by excellent RR. Just see 26/16 mines, CoF and conduit.
Since Pyro isn’t the toughest class, multiple defensive layers are present - Blast Shield at 14/12, Possession % absorb, flat absorb from boots, Turtle and Phoenix. Also sustain with Bat and Ghoul, some health regen with Giant’s Blood proc and kiting style to avoid damage too. Physical resistance and heal from Blood of Dreeg helps too.
Build have nice clear rate in Crucible but it’s not immortal. Slow Nemesis waves can put you on some trouble. Speed is very different depending on which enemies can spawn. Bad mutators paired with spawns with Maiden, Grava and other fire resistant enemies can make build hellishly slow. So speed vary from 5:45 to 6:55. Here’s video 5:43 my run.
