I have to say, this build is GREAT!

Always wanted to try a caster based class and I am Sooooo impressed at the survivability, the clear speed and the overall FUN this build has!

It has renewed my interest in advancing a new build to 80+ levels :)

Thanks a ton for this guide!

BTW, anyone starting this build: easily leveled using some low level uniques and Spectral Throw until 52 in a very short time. Then (hopefully) you can pop on your CoD and it's amazing! Simply follow the path(Scion) and maybe take a few projectile+ adds along the way around the Scion start for extra DPS. Using only 5ish respec points I was able to hit 67 in only a couple nights casually playing.

Thanks again Invalesco!

P.S. suggestion to folks trying this out. I HIGHLY suggest making your fire Trap and supports quality. It helps take down the packs when you get mobbed or thin them down before they even reach you. Most times if I time it right they don't even get close :).


glad you like it! :)

Well, I just ripped at lvl 78 to the Jungle Valley map boss with 35% increase damage mod :( Had 13 chaos res and an amethyst flask up, thought I would be okay but once I messed up my perma freeze on the Weaver all the little spiders jumped on me and burst me down before I could react. Nothing against the build though, it was incredibly fun to play although a bit vulnerable against certain types of monsters. Might retry it again after the expansion, or continue playing in softcore, haven't decided yet.


Sorry to hear about the rip. What flasks did you have? I tend to only have problems against weaver rather than the small spiders. Jade flasks tend to come in very useful. Then again, you wouldn't have access to both Jades and Lavianga's, hence your difficulty in that map I would imagine.

Hi Invalesco and the community,

thanks for this build, it's fun and I've learned alot about the game by playing it.

I've just reached level 78 (Nemesis) doing mostly low level maps and when moving up to 69's and 70's I began to face some difficulties.

I decided to take some Life and Eva/life nodes instead of Crit multiplier because I had too many close calls.

My current gear




I know some of these gear choices are pretty questionable (belt ^^) but I really had a hard time balancing my resists with CoD. Any thoughts what should I replace first? I feel pretty squishy, currently sitting at 3,6k health and around 1k unreserved mana (without grace). My chance to evade is around 27%, isnt that too low?

How do you deal with leapers (Goatmen ect)? I always get in trouble because I cant freeze them, they will destroy the mine before I can detonate it..

All advice is much appreciated


My chance to evade is lower than yours and I'm doing quite alright tbh!

I just switch on a jade flask if necessary and pulse leapers to death. Freezing mine can be useful, but with experience you'll probably realise that there are mobs that are not worth trying to freeze.

Hallo, What can you say about Maligaro's Gloves?


Not necessary tbh. I much prefer the survivability that a pair of rare gloves will offer.
