The Tempest Rising is a unique pair of Goliath Greaves in Path of Exile, designed to empower your character by harnessing the fury of elemental ailments. Let’s delve into its mechanics and how it can supercharge your gameplay:

Defense and Mobility:

  • Provides a significant increase in Armour (80-120%), bolstering your physical defenses.
  • Grants a substantial 30% bonus to Movement Speed, enhancing your agility on the battlefield.

Elemental Ailment Mastery (Key Point):

  • Focuses on manipulating elemental ailments (Bleeding, Ignited, Scorched, Chilled, Frozen, Brittle, Shocked) to your advantage:
    • Extended Ailment Duration: Increases the duration of ailments inflicted on enemies by (5-25%). This allows ailments to linger for a longer period, potentially affecting enemies for a greater portion of the encounter.
    • Accelerated DoT: Damaging ailments (Bleeding, Ignited, and Poisoned) deal damage (5-25)% faster. This effectively increases the damage output you inflict through these ailments without necessarily increasing the total damage dealt.
    • Permanent Elemental Movement: You and nearby enemies are considered moving while affected by elemental ailments. This can be particularly beneficial for ailments that hinder movement speed (e.g., Chilled), ensuring you remain agile regardless of the ailment affecting you or your foes.


  • Build Synergy: The Tempest Rising shines in builds that focus on inflicting elemental ailments and leveraging their damage over time (DoT) effects.
  • Damage vs Duration: The increased ailment duration might not translate to a significant overall damage increase, as the total damage dealt remains the same. However, it allows for more consistent application of ailments.
  • Playstyle: This unique item rewards an aggressive playstyle where you stay close to enemies to inflict and maintain ailments.

Possible Uses:

  • DoT builds that specialize in elemental ailments like Bleed, Ignite, or Cold DoT.
  • Builds that utilize skills that inherently inflict multiple elemental ailments.
  • Ascendancy classes that enhance ailments, such as Trickster (DoT and ailment focus) or Elementalist (Elemental Damage overall).


The Tempest Rising is a valuable tool for characters who want to build around elemental ailments. It offers increased defense, mobility, and extended durations for these ailments, allowing you to control the battlefield with a storm of damaging effects. If you enjoy a playstyle that revolves around inflicting and strategically manipulating ailments, The Tempest Rising is a unique item well worth considering for your Path of Exile adventures.
