3 - Last Epoch 1.0 Fire Warpath Paladin Build

The last build you should try in the Last Epoch 1.0 launch is the Fire Warpath Paladin, it focuses on self-buffs and applying as many stacks of ignite as possible through warpath, this allows the build to quickly clear mobs of enemies and hold its own against bosses in a pretty decent way.

It is not the fastest build around, but it will be safe by taking advantage of self-healing.
