Ignite Shield Rush Forge Guard Guide


Covered in plate armour and wielding a giant Two-Handed Axe, this Forge Guard rushes into the battlefield and chaotically bounces around, setting everything in his path on fire. Use Shield Rush to brutally charge across the battlefield and Ignite your enemies. The Fire Damage Over Time this build dishes out is capable of burning the strongest foes to death.

Cast Sigils Of Hope to gain powerful buffs and use Volatile Reversal to regain Mana and apply debuffs to your enemies. Attack with Lunge to move quickly around the map and use Abyssal Echoes to further enhance the single target DPS.

While this setup doesn't require any Unique to function and is playable without them, Maehlin's Hubris is crucial to convert all Bleed Chance into Ignite Chance. Additionally, Bleeding Heart, Wings of Argentus and Throne of Ambition are amazing for the build.

Overall Ignite Shield Rush Forge Guard is a super fun build capable of defeating all the content in the game. It's easy to play, has great Damage, clears Echoes rapidly and is pretty tanky. If you are looking for a solid beginner friendly build with a crazy and fun playstyle, this setup is perfect for you!
