Appears to be worse than my 2 sceptres of 5c ea? :(


I'm a complete newb but why do you have cast while channeling gem in a staff with cast while channeling mod?

Just a linking issue. I replaced it with Htpothermia.
thinking on swapping it to ice bite though.
Hypothermia doesn't work well with elemental focus.
Any other suggestions?
Hey just a question , why using Blood rage instead of ice bite link with Herald of ice ?

why not just follow the gem setup that I showed =/ ? That's the most optimal one.

The only reason to craft the + 2 support gem mod is to support your empower gem that you should be using . keep hypothermia. Drop elemental focus for empower level 3 at least. Don't trust the tooltip. Hypothermia requires enemies to be chilled to give you the bonus dmg...just tick the chilled option for enemies in poB

I wouldn't have proceeded with multi modding the staff though. the double dmg mod is CRUCIAL. It is a ton of damage. If you had wanted to proceed you should have 1st tried to annul the 10% cold dmg which provides next to nothing for damage. You could have replaced it with a crit multiplier on the bench or even a 12% chance to deal double damage from the bench if you had multi modded a staff with just cast while channeling

It will be too risky to annul it now though so just fix your gem setup

I'm really interested in this build, but seems that even in the very budget version it would cost something like 20+ ex and half of that - just 6l shaper crafted staff with CWC...


The staff version is expensive. I'm using 2 wands. I was doing yellow maps and a few red with 10c worth of gear. Now I'm at 3ex and that includes the two meeks and damage is fine in red maps. 7,7K life without Kaom's.

really great build killed uber elder with it already without being super optimized very fun
Is it worth it to get 2 pieces of gear with "projectiles pierce an additional target? Or should I just stay with 1.

Thanks for getting back to me!
This is the first item I ever crafted, so was getting quite nervous when I was hitting the end of my orb stacks.
Noticed empower 4 was 6 exalts, but empower 3 is afforable. Will go for that. Thank you!

Actually according to your PoB Added Cold is better than Empower 3. You need empower 4 to best Added Cold.
