Silly question, maybe. I have read every bit of the build info. On your tool tip picture it says you have 50% increased life leech rate. Where do you get that?


Sorry, for some reason, I submitted the old version of the build, which had the life leech gem. I edited the post above and verified it now has the correct gems.
OK, thanks for the reply, but I still see 50% increased life leech rate on the picture of the tool tip for icestorm, but I do not know the source of that modifier.

Thanks
You have 2 curses set up in your body armour. I can only have one. Where do you get the capability for 2 curses?

Thanks

I only have one, which is Enfeeble, but I guess you mean the one that is on the guide, on the Delve League part. As per the PoB that is right below, he has Whispers of Doom, which is at the top left of the tree, close to Avatar of Fire.

Thanks for the help. (BTW, I do not do PoB). Great build, thanks for the detailed guide. I might respec a few points and get Whispers of Doom. Then I'd keep Enfeeble and add Warlords Mark for endurance charges for Immortal call, or maybe Temporal Chains which is really helpful to slow 'em down.

Thanks again.
Finally get lucky vaal :)
Thanks for the guide its a fun build :)

However I'm not entirely sure what gems to use in the main hand as you mentioned something about Energy Leech gem so I don't know which to replace that with.

At the moment this is what I'm using with swapping Spell Cascade to Elemental Focus.

I'm currently getting regret orbs to modify the tree and remove vaal pact as your current skill tree doesn't have it.

Also whats a decent flask setup for general mapping and is it worth dropping Int on the chest piece to be able to buy a higher ES chest piece?

Thanks.

First I would like to thank Kelvynn again for this build (already did that via PM), and for the patience shown when answering questions here in the forums and via PM.

Second I would like to ask if anyone could help me with tips about crafting an item related to this build (or any int-stacking ES build).

First a little context: I got a iLVL 86 shaper regalia and was trying to get an upgrade for my current chest, messing arround, I decided to use a dense fossil and suddenly, THIS:


It's triple T1 ES prefixes.

I'm thinking about removing ES on kill (via locking prefixes+scour) then multi mod for (int+quality)+(Increased Attributes).

Is it the right way?

You pretty much need to switch to a 5B1R staff, as the lifeleech one is pretty much useless now. Needs to be swapped to a ES Leech one (which is blue).

For Flasks, you mostly need blue ones with immunity to bleeding, freeze, and I got another one with immunity to curses, which is optional.

Like Chris mentioned, the Wise Oak is a good one, giving good fire penetration.

For the chest piece, personally, I found an ES one to give much more ES than an Int one, but your DPS will suffer a bit. You can play on PoB and find out which fits better for you.

My tree is mostly about obtaining ES rather than Int, since I'm new and don't have too much currency to get new gear on Int.

I recently got to 92 and here's my tree:

You could really do with optimizing your skill tree.
You go out of your way to not pass a 10 dex/str node by pathing through 2 intelligence nodes? Yeah that's not right...
You don't grab Deep Thoughts?
You don't grab the top left or top right jewel socket for an additional Brute Force/Fertile Mind (4 nodes for 50 intelligence is premium, disregarding the fact that you get some elemental damage/mana in the process as well)
You can path through the middle ES to save some nodes going from left to right.

Pure Talent? Emperor's Wit?
Plain intelligence / attribute jewels?

Watcher's eye potential with "Gain (12-18)% of Maximum Mana as Extra Maximum Energy Shield while affected by Clarity"
Or "(1.5-2.5)% of Maximum Energy Shield Regenerated per Second while affected by Discipline" // "+(20-30) Energy Shield gained for each Enemy Hit while affected by Discipline" ?

You can get almost 1200 intelligence SOLELY off of the tree, the Whispering ice staff and jewels.

^ A quick 5 minute build as food for thought.

P.S. Your last pastebin you have overlapping fertile mind jewels so you're only getting intelligence off of the top one.

Edit: Changed the last pastebin you posted to this option, adjusted by adding one Brute force gem and spending 4 additional skill points (3 if not counting frost walker which you should probably get)
This gives you 100 extra intelligence. (and extra dex/str tbh)
