Hey guys! This build was made for you, that loves freezing and critical builds! Feel your enemies exploding around you with this build.
VIDEO FROM YOUTUBE CHANNEL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7FVkw0INdM
- Heavy dps
- Can reach 700% crit multiplier
- Culling strike
- It's almost "melee" build
- Reflect mobs/maps is a great problem!
- Can't do elemental reflect/blood magic maps
You can use dual daggers or a shield, your choice
Look for (in weapons):
- Critical strike chance for spells
- Spell damage
- Elemental damage
- Critical Strike Multiplier
A good rare Platinum Kris is the best choice, but any dagger can be used as base.
Look for (body armour, gloves, boots, helmets, rings and amulets):
- Flat life
- Cast speed (rings/amulets)
Get as much life/resistances as you can on gear, dexterity is also needed for some gems and equips. For endgame look for a good rare Fingerless Silk Gloves.
Look for (jewels):
- Increased maximum life
- Critical strike multiplier
- Spell damage
- Dexterity (if you still need)
Look for (flasks):
- Freeze/chill immunity
- Bleeding immunity
- 20% chance to get a flask charge when you deal a critical strike
Look for "surgeon's" prefix at all your flasks, it's a easy way to get flask charges quickly
Just the Call of the Brotherhood, Two-Stone Ring is MANDATORY! in this build, because you need 50% or 100% of cold damage to keep freezing mobs.
Use Arc to leveling untill you reach level 28, so switch to Ball Lightning.
To help leveling, use a pair of Elreon Rings, Asenath's Mark, Lochtonial Caress and Meginord's Girdle.

Amplify and Blast Radius do not work on Ball Lightning? aka Area Damage from passive tree
IGN: FMMANKOOR - but I play at "weird" hours.
