Path of Exile is such an extensive and complex game that one can just jump in without any planning. Following a build guide is always good for new and even experienced players as very few players are capable of building viable end-game builds.
Totem (Pizzasticks or Pizzablast) is the best league starter, which can annihilate
enemies and burn them to cinders. Note there are 3 ascendancy builds, one can
follow for Flameblast Totems. The most traditional is Witch build, which is the
most balanced Elementalist. The Templar variation offers hirophant (4
totems but less damage) and Inquisitor.
find or craft a high DPS 2H axe, it’s simply magical. It’s powerful and easy to
scale (just craft 2H axes), it has great survivability (swap out Concentrated
Effect for AoE when doing Izauro, etc), and it is fun.
It’s fun and very powerful, like Warchief
Totem, all players need to focus on rolling 2H axe. Items are interchangeable
with Warchief Totem and Earthquake build. As a player may want to choose EQ
over WCT, the reason is that they like to bounce around and jump in the middle
of action more often. EQ is also able to do cold breach much easier than WCT
since anti-freeze buff doesn’t apply to totems.
As a new player in poe 2.6 this build is
still viable and some will even tell you that it's the top build to start with.
A lot of players have been turning away from Earthquake due to nerf to it in
the last patch, but it wasn't put into ground. This build is one of the best in
game right now at putting out incredible damage on a low budget.
