[2.5][BHC] Windz's Malice CoC Vortex Assassin
Warning! This build is laggy and your game will become a powerpoint slide show.
Ripped to lag:
*Update from STD*
Killed all guardians deathless. Used life leech on malice instead of inc aoe because CoC vortex link is doing most of the damage anyways.
Shaper was ok til the p3 because lack of my experience with the fight
This is my take on a clear speed build for the 10000 map tier point challenge.
The idea is to combine the clear speed of malice discharge + dps of CoC vortex.
Resulting in a fast laggy build with good single target for mapping.
lvl 96 tree (current)
lvl 89 tree
lvl 67 tree
lvl 60 tree (Pre CI lvling)
Note: Great for breaches due it being zergy and stunlock can result in instant death
Note: Can use vinktars for shock and some leech. Get the Added light to spell variant
For the super min/max. Not needed at all
Place is at the 3 str point jewel slot at templars fro 12% chance to gain frenzy charge on kill
Note: Look for double dipping + attack speed first.
Then grab multi + utility
Mana gained on hit (at least 1 jewel)
Dex/Str (to use cospris/higher lvl IC)
Malice 3 link:
Vortex + Controlled + Inc Aoe (swap to conc effect if needed for bosses)
Bladeflurry(cyclone) + CoC + Vortex + Conc effect + Controlled + Fire pen/Multi
Note: 5 link is enough. Lvled to low 90's before 6linking my chest.
The 6th link only adds dps to the initial hit and doesn't double dip so it isn't that crucial.
Gloves (if insanity crafted) 4link:
Shield charge + Inc crit + Fort + Faster attacks
Vaal Haste + Vaal disc + Inc duration
Cwdt + IC + warlords mark
Blash + Ass mark
Vaal lightning trap (if not using vinktars)
Lightning golem (can use ice golem also)
Can use ele weak/flam instead of assassin mark if you have enough crit
Level as firestorm (can go non crit but more respec points).
Can try scorching ray + CwC + Firestorm set up
Use essence of hysteria on Crystal Scepter (to make it lvl 50 req) for a good twink weapon.
PRO/CON VS DISCHARGE AND COC VORTEX
Cheaper (no volls devo)
More ES (can use a vaal regalia instead of Volls protector)
Maybe more single target dps post 2.5 cospris nerf
Less leech due to no vinktars leech
Less dmg on ignite immune map mod/monsters
Faster clear speed (due to faster weapon and usage of insanity gloves)
Less single target dps
Needs Dex requirement for cospris
NOTE: All has less crit so needs more crit on tree/gear and have to use Inc crit gems (prob)
Defensive (wicked ward)
ES regen + stun on full es or +1 curse
Power charge on crit
Profane bloom (extra clear)
Reflect immune pretty much
Double golems (fire + ice)
More es (250es flat)
Free movement skills (have to use cyclone though)
Able to fit in 1 more aura/blasph
Gives 1000 flat acc
Stun immune (use dps neck instead of chayula)
Endurance charge generation for more IC duration
Bad starting path
Stun immune after killing recently
Life leech (can face tank more) + mana leech (no need mana gain on hit jewel)
40% more damage (double dips with ignite)
25% attack speed when hit/15% movement speed when not hit
Bad starting path
No need fire pen/ele weak/flam
Enemies take more ele dmg
20% attack speed always
30% inc spell dmg (maybe on for bosses when you use vaal skills/golem resummon)
Simple Shaped Strand Run Demo:
T11 T11 Strand Double Beyond Fun:
T15 Courtyard Double Beyond Fun:
How do you leech?
Leech comes from my boot's enchant (0.5% leech when killed recently) + atziri's promise + warlords mark (from cwdt)
It's not as efficient as vinktars, but it does the job for now
Why CoC over CwC?
CoC has a 39% more spell dmg modifier vs CwC's 9%. You want a strong big ignite for bosses.
Also CwC has a build up time whereas CoC can proc on the first hit, resulting in smoother experience.

Thinking about trying out this build, what are its limits in terms of content? Atziri, shaper, guardians etc

Sadly prob wont be that great.
I did all of the breach bosses and the dps was fine to kill them during flask uptime.
Sadly i did rip to some lag in breach but i can test this build out in std.
I did minotaur easy mods and facetanked him. Used 1-2 portal for reflask i think, no death. Killed him pretty fast but slower than pure CoC vortex.
Prob will be able to do all bosses including atziri and pheonix (ignite immune) just have to do mechanics.
Shaper i can see myself doing it, just no instant pushes.

Other than like generally grabbing better versions of my gear to get more ES.. Are my gears fine? Single target feels weird.. Sometimes it feels really strong and other times its kind of lacking
on Dec 25, 2016 8:51:14 PM
Hmm gear looks fine. You are missing a good 3 lvl of vortex. Also you dont have any enchants. When you get more levels, u grab more jewels which can make your dps increase by a lot.
Are you assassin also btw?
I think if the first BF doesnt crit, the whole channel doesnt crit. (Need clarification)
So that can explain why you are seeing good or bad dps. If you see that you arent proccing, just release and restart BF channel

I'm assassin yeah, I'm just missing my UBER at the moment. Going to grab more jewels once I get Arcane Focus.. I'm using a vinktar now but I still think you need the boot enchant with it because otherwise you have to wait for warlords mark to proc to get you leech.. Might play around and try using warlords as my main curse with blasphemy if I can get enough crit since my flurry is at like 42% at max charges and my shield charge is at 70%.

I went heretic veil with double blasphemy warlord+assasin works very well so far.

Just tried this now, 23 active mana but everything is so low mana wise that this seems to be working well.
on Dec 26, 2016 9:05:21 AM
ooh thats a great idea. Just went for hubris bc of the enchant but yeah dual blasph will feel good
on Dec 28, 2016 3:19:04 AM
Is it possible to farm uber with this char? I'm sitting at lvl 82 now but I don't think I can pass uber lab LUL...
