The Marauder is Path of Exile's pure force class, capable of dealing massive damage while taking it.

When leveled and equipped correctly, the Marauder can be an absolute monster on the battlefield, wiping out any enemies or bosses in its path. This is where this construction comes into play:

The Molten Strike Juggernaut build is based on stacking damage in order to slaughter enemies in your path. Molten Strike itself is a melee attack that uses both physical damage and fire damage, while causing balls of molten magma to be launched at enemies you strike, which will deal area damage. effect during explosion. This is the core of this build and is combined with a 90% reduction in physical damage, maximum resistances, and significant health regeneration.

The playstyle of this build is to rush into the middle of a group of enemies and take them down with just a few moves. It uses defensive buffs and mitigation measures to be able to deal a lot of damage. By the end of the game the build will be able to handle any damage that comes your way and with the addition of Life Leech the damage can easily be negated.

You should use any excess points you earn to fill the large cluster gems in each of the three Large Jewel sockets, and be sure to research:

Suzerain – Support Fortify permanent
Devastating - clearly improves
Feed the fury - leech of life and damage
Fuel the fightt - Mana Leech and Attack Speed

Also try to get Iron Grip and Point Blank as they are very important for this build.

Each cluster jewelry should have two sockets in which the standard jewelry will be placed. Try to get one of each notable talent for its perks, then stack the weight perk for damage from the remaining notable ones.

Gem Links

Here are the gem links you should focus on when leveling up your character. Molten Strike will be the basis of everything, so he's the first to unlock.

Molten Strike 6-Link

  1. Molten Strike
  2. Awake multi-strike support
  3. Awakened elemental damage with attack support
  4. Combustion aid
  5. Awakened Fire Penetration Support
  6. Support for slower projectiles

Auras 4-link

Using Vitality will help create a Cloud of Life Generation around you and your teammates, which will help you stay alive as you assault swarms of enemies.

  1. Vitality
  2. Herald of Ashes
  3. Herald of Purity
  4. Enlighten Support

Mobility / utility link

Leap Slam is a valuable AoE attack that can deal a lot of damage to many enemies at once, and Enduring Cry will help you regenerate stamina and give you a defensive boost when you need it. Make sure Blood Cry is not linked to Blood Magic Support; make it a 3-Link with an empty socket.

This version doesn't lack attack speed, so you won't necessarily need to use support for faster attacks, but you can use it for leveling and early mapping.

  1. Leap Slam
  2. Blood Magic Support
  3. Enduring cry
  4. Blood and sand

Flammability bond

Flammability will help you deal Fire damage to enemies around you and increase their chances of igniting.

  1. Cast when damage taken Support (level 1)
  2. Wave of Condemnation (Level 7)
  3. Flammability (level 5)

Vaal Molten Shell 3-Link

Vaal Molten Shell will give your character good defense, but it will need to be activated manually. Blood Rage's binding will increase the speed of your attacks and generate frenzied charges, so make it constantly active.

  1. Molten shell vaal
  2. Black anger
  3. Increased duration support

Regular jewelry

Use jewels to provide elemental resistances in the early stages of the game until you can find the rare pieces of equipment. At the end of the game, make sure you have a gem with “Corrupted Blood Cannot Be Inflicted On You”.

Use the following affixes:

  1. % Of increased maximum life
  2. % increased Attack Speed ​​with Maces or Scepters
  3. % increased Attack Speed ​​while wielding double
  4. % Increased attack speed

Abyss Jewel

For your Abyss Jewel, use the following affixes:

  1. Maximum life (at least 35)
  2. % chance to blind enemies on hit with attacks
  3. % increased Attack Speed ​​if you've critically hit recently
  4. % Increased attack speed
  5. Damage penetrates 1% fire resistance
  6. Adds # to # Fire Damage to Mass Attacks
  7. Adds # to # Fire Damage to Attacks


You want to choose Juggernaut, as the build name suggests. This subclass will help build armor and defense as well as stamina charge. He also has strong offensive bonuses.

  1. Unshakeable
  2. Undeniable
  3. Unbreakable
  4. Relentless

Powers of the Pantheon

Major gods

Soul of Solaris is the best choice for his defense, which is unstoppable when you fully level him up.

Minor gods

Soul of Gruthkul will help you work and search, while giving you additional physical damage reduction.

Soul of Ralakesh will reduce physical damage over time, which is good for maze farming, while also providing blind immunity when buffed.


These articles combine profitability and power. The build uses jewelry to reduce its damage so you want to have the right gear for it.

A Royal Burgonet or an Eternal Burgonet obtained with an immaculate fossil and a burnt fossil. Affixes should be prioritized as such:

  1. (Uncapped) Elemental resistances
  2. + # at maximum life
  3. Nearby enemies have - #% fire resistance
  4. + # to armor

We recommend that you enchant the helmet with Molten Strike firing two more projectiles as soon as possible. You can buy a white base and then craft it.

Body armor

We recommend the Loreweave, then get 78% max resistance and a high percentage of increased elemental damage. You can also use a Belly of the Beast until you can acquire the Loreweave as it is very easy to obtain.

The affixes must be as follows:

  1. (Uncapped) Elemental resistances
  2. + # at maximum life
  3. % Of increased maximum life (elder / hunter)
  4. % Increased armor


Use a rare pair of Seized Gloves for their defensive stats and damage. You can use an Awakening Orb to get both a Hunter and Warlord mod, but it's quite expensive.


  1. (Uncapped) Elemental Resistance
  2. + # at maximum life
  3. % increased Attack Speed
  4. Skill attack targets 1 additional nearby enemy (hunter)
  5. Slaughter Strike (Warlord)
  6. % Increased damage when leeching (crafted)

Kaom Roots are the way to go as they are very cheap and you can also invest in a corrupt pair once you have enough cash.

The construction is based on dual-handling nebulochs. This weapon will give a ton of damage and also grant you elemental damage reduction, chaos reduction, and armor. Even with its degenerating effect, its regeneration and leech will compensate for it.

If you can't handle the degenerating effect of two weapons at first, you can use Brutus' Lead Sprinkler or Grelwood's Rod until you find two Kaom's Way Rings to help you.



Xoph's Blood will save you skill points while giving you big damage. It also provides a powerful “ash covered” effect.

Here is the list of affix priorities:

  1. (Uncapped) Elemental resistances
  2. + # at maximum life
  3. % increased Elemental Damage with Attack Skills
  4. Gain% of Physical damage as bonus Fire damage (Ancient or Warlord)
  5. % Increased attack speed
  6. Damage penetrates% fire resistance (warlord)
  7. % Increased fire damage
  8. Adds # to # physical damage to attacks

Flat band rings

Twin Kaom's Path Rings will give you a boost in stamina charge and negate the degenerating effects of your Nebuloch weapons.

A Sytgian vice is the belt to use and prioritize the affixes as such:

  1. (Uncapped) Elemental resistances
  2. + # at maximum life
  3. % Increased elemental damage with attack skills
  4. % Increased fire damage (burnt fossil)
  5. % Elemental damage increased (Prismatic Fossil)
  6. % Increased damage (crafted)


Using The Wise Oak will allow you to penetrate any enemy fire resistance, so make sure your fire resistance is highest for this:

Also use the Cinderswallow Urn, Bottled Faith, Dying Sun, and Chemist's Basalt Protective Flask.

Eye of the Guardian

It's a fantastic late-game pickup, especially with Vitality mods. This will make your character invincible, especially with his on-hit life gain. This is very powerful with the high attack speed and the number of projectiles. Even with a single target, you can heal any damage dealt to you.
