Is modifier “increased damage with hits against chilled enemies” useful in this build?


Yes, as long as you have Beacon of Ruin and at least 1 point of cold damage added to spells.

@Enki: Thanks for your reply! Was going for wand like Worder's, but i'll probably multi-mod flat lightning damage to spells and divine for top rolls. Want to experience the power of high end weapons this league :)

And no post goes without a big thanks to Enki for putting together and maintaining this awesome guide! Super fun and engaging build … kudos to you sir!

@Worder: Thanks for your contribution to the thread... very informative :)


Yes, Enki is the best. I can't even begin to imagine how many n00bs like myself he's provided a solid foundational education for regarding the mechanics of this build and beyond. All the love for Enki!

Glad to help, myself. :) I personally would've said spend the 2 ex to multimod it, but always listen to Enki over me!
for the boots with "Matatl's prefix" (Movement Speed + Attack- or Spell Dodge.)
I hit the Martal's prefix with the Anulment Orb. Can I roll that prefix on again after scouring the boots and try again or do I have to get new boots?

Sadly, you have to find new boots; that mod cannot be rolled, only dropped.

Luckily, it's not super uncommon. I found a pair with a t1 life roll for reasonably cheap and managed to metacraft it into something decent.
Hi there, I've been using this guide for my first PoE char. I wanted to say thanks for the guide, worked pretty well so far.
I decided that I'm going to try to get this char to level 100. Are there any suggestions to improve my char along the way?
I thought about switching from arc to vaal arc, because someone mentioned that vaal arc is working great vs legion pylons.

Dude, your gear is insane. I would say you've done an amazing job all on your own, lol.

But yes, buy a lvl 21 Vaal Arc for sure, it makes Monoliths really easy and is a huge damage boost during boss fights. They're really cheap, and gem quality doesn't matter at all for this particular one. That aside, I can only make a few small suggestions:

If you can spare the mana, the best craft for your gloves would be the increased AoE and +1 to level of socketed AoE gems.

A few of your gems are 20/20 uncorrupted; may as well try corrupting them for the chance of a lvl 21.

I don't see much increased shock effect. If you can craft 30% increased effect of non-damaging ailments onto both your boots and amulet, that's about 9% more total damage.

There's not much else I can really say. If you have enough dozens of exalts gathering dust in your stash, you could go for an Inpulsa's with the +1 to level of socketed gems (or +2 to socketed lighting gems) corruption and swap Empower in for Hypothermia to maximize damage further...it's hardly necessary, though.
Hey, thanks for taking a look at my gear, I will test the vaal arc.

Gonna test that for sure- mana is ok right now.

Yes I know, I'm waiting with corrupting until I got backup i.e. another 20/20 gem of that type. Better be save than sorry;)

I will try to get more resistance elsewhere, so I can afford to swap the enchant.
My belt really teared a hole into my resistance management, but it was totally worth it:)

Regarding the Inpulsa, I'm probably going to pass on that one for now. I will probably try to spend my money on one with pre-Legion stats.

Again, thanks a lot for taking a look.

As an afterthought, when I acquire enough resitance to be able to dump the neck enchant, would swapping to a solstice vigil for extended buff duration during mapping be worth a shot? (If that works at all, as I said that's my first char:))
Thank you so much for this guide from a new player learning about the game. Got a great start into the game and totally ready for the next league.

Love the build just feeling a bit low on dps for some of the tougher end game bosses and I tend to die a lot. Could be because Im new to the game and have to compensate for computer and internet lag but it feels a bit like a glass cannon on most maps.

I have some of the end game gear albeit basic versions of it (aside from 6L inpulsa) and not sure what to upgrade. It seems like only very small benefits will cost me several exalts per piece of gear.
@dlhdumptruck
replace your hybrid flask with a quartz flask- that's 10% dodge right there.
Try to get boots with the incursion mod for movement speed ( movement speed + dodge spell hit/dodge attack hits). Move the Blind setup to your boots and replace your weapon with a decent rare one- there should be cheap rare upgrades available.
Most of your jewels are lacking life. That's one of the more important stats.
You are not running clarity so you can also replace 1 jewel with Clear Mind.
Ultimately you probably want to start dual wielding instead of using a shield. Until you can afford to swap to multimodded Tiger Hooks, you should stick with wands.
Regarding your pc/internet lag, probably try to use predictive networking mode (if you aren't doing that already).
You already got gloves with cast speed, but they are lacking any resistance- you should be able to get better ones pretty cheap.
want to say thanks for that detailed guide, really nice work!
