Ranger fire build for GM2 - Need input

★★★ Apprentice

Hey guys,

 

I'd like to get some help in building a Fire Ranger build.

 

At the moment I'm rocking

 

Weapons:

Elemental Rage (Hitting Elite increases elemental damage by 5% for 10 seconds. Stacks to 20)

Thunderbolt of Yvenia (With Javelin wide Elemental +20% and to use it to break shields)

 

Grenade:

Explosive Blaze (Inferno grenade) - Detonates fire explosion after applying fire effect to 2 enemies with +100% charges and Javelin wide +28% dmg

 

Assault Launcher:

Ember's Lance (Spark beam) - Detonates fire explosion on a small hit streak [3]

 

Components:

Defensive Bulwark - Increases all weapon dmg by 25% + 10% Fire effect

Victor's Resolve - Increases Blast damage by 50% and lowers impact by 20%. Performing [3] multi-kill restores 25% armor

Combined Arms - Increases grenade damage by 5% with +10% Fire effect

Elemental Ops - Increases fire damage by 20%

Thermal Regulator (Epic) - Increases fire damage by 20%

Crossed Arms (Epic) - Increases blast damage by 50% and lowers impact by 20%

 

However I feel that the fire damage is seriously still underwhelming for GM2. Anything else can I actually do to improve this?

 

Thanks in advance

I would swap this out for " Divine Vengeance" if you have it as it produces a fire explosion on 3 crit hits (which is pretty easy). It tears through shields like a hot knife through butter. My Fire Build is almost identical apart from the weapon choice. I also run a Truth of Tarsis just because I have go used to its blast damage goodness (don't waste ammo on shields with it).

 

Could also run a few consumables with fire buff. I tried 60% (epic, rare, common) Ridiculas!! However, without going into details test Sigil's first many don't work...

1. Switch out Yvenia for Ralner's Or DV. Both benefit from fire damage.

2. You have no detonator. I've tested Inferno but it doesn't deto for me. Combo damage is everything for rangers.

3. Your components are a little messed up. Rangers cannot be the "increase all damage" javelin. You have to choose 1 patch and stick to it.

Inputting 2 epic components is decreasing your
- ult damage
- melee damage
- proc from yvenia
- proc from inferno
- proc from spark beam

You'd have to change a lot of stuff to make this work.
