Almost any cold skill with damage over time works
Tons of chill/freezing/shattering
Great Boss DPS


Cons
Spoiler
A little squishy until you get to level 80
Weird playstyle to adjust to
Can be a little expensive to get end game (Taryn's Shiver + Carcass Jack 5/6Links



This build is a work in progress, as alot of the skills were reworked. So far I have downed Atziri @ level 69 deathless, and Uber Atziri @ lvl 75 Deathless. I am working my way up the tiers and will be posting video content as time goes on.

Passive Tree - Mind you, we get 2nd curse because we need to activate Despair aura on witchfire brew. Bandits is kill all btw!

Leveling Guide:
Spoiler
I started off with Freezing Pulse, then rushed LMP, Added Cold, and kept stacking on damage, while using Cold Snap for single target. Herald of Ice and Thunder help push the early game. As soon as you can 4 link Cold Snap and sustain your frenzy charges with first 2 points of Ascendancy, you are set for the long run. Also rush your Vortex into a 2-4 link, it is great for speed clearing. I leveled and killed Atziri with vortex and cold snap in 4 links, this build is extremely strong.

Leveling priorities passive tree-wise: DoT and Cold dmg nodes, as well as life. Reach for jewels and notables later. MoM by level 60 is a must, and Elemental Overload by 70.

If you are on hardcore, obviously favor life more than the rest, and prolly rush double curse for leveling for temp chains or enfeeble + frostbite
