[3.8] LL Winter Orb Trickster



3.8 changes:

-> Made some tree changes. Got more ES. About the same damage.
-> Look into FAQ if you're having mana issues without Sovereignty.


Note: Please post all your questions in this thread or come by the stream, please don't pm me in game. Make sure your profile is PUBLIC before asking for help so your character is visible. If you have issues with the trees and you're loading them into the poe website, don't. Import them into Path of Building. Please check out the FAQ or previous responses in the thread if you can, chances are I've answered them already.

I do not claim my guide to be original or the best or even this build to be super efficient. I write guides mostly because I'm fond of my characters and I'd like to share them.

I also stream sometimes.


=======================================================================

Hi, this my eighth build guide.

Pros:
Fast map clear.
Braindead easy to play.
Good single target.

Cons:
Expensive.
No regen maps are annoying.

Introduction
Spoiler

Soo, I wanted to make something with the new channeling buffs trickster got, to be able to perma keep up power and frenzy charges, and abuse all the broken stuff added this patch. Infused channeling, energy leech supports and cold to fire double dipping chaos damage. I also wanted to try out Escape artist and Ghost Dance and go hybrid ES/acro, but that chunked my ES pool too much so I didn't.

I've been staying away from Winter orb for a while and decided to finally give it a try after all the channelling buffs.

There's two ways to maximize damage in Worb. Eternity shroud as life based/Mom/EB/CI and Shavs as LL. Based on my playing around with PoB, the LL version does more damage and has more ES while not having to deal with getting shaper gear in every possible slot.

Shaper Sceptres with % elemental as chaos. Needs ilvl 85 sceptres I believe for the t1 roll. Isolate that mod and multimod the rest.

Budget option: Any rare with Cold to spells, spell damage, spell crit.


Helmet:
Spoiler


Since most of our damage is chaos, void gaze is really good. The % elemental as chaos is good too.

BIS - Winter Orb has +2 maximum stages.

Budget option: Any rare with ES, resists.


Chest:
Spoiler


Yes it's legacy. No you don't need the legacy version.

Budget option: None. Core Item.


Gloves:
Spoiler


ES, resists, dex/str.

Fingerless would be the best base.

BIS - Commandment of Blades.


Boots:
Spoiler


ES, resists, movement speed, dex/str.

BIS - 16% increased Attack and Cast if you've killed recently OR #-# cold damage if you've been hit recently.


Amulet:
Spoiler


BIS for LL builds.

Budget option: Anything with ES, multi, stats, res.


Belt:
Spoiler


Fossil craft with dense fossils for the % body es armour mod. Look for an open prefix.


Rings:
Spoiler


ES, resists, dex/str.

Get the -3 to cost of channeled skills craft. Cinderswallow will also help with the mana. If you're still struggling, you can get a praxis for your other ring slot or multimod a Xopec's ring.

Yes the pyre is legacy. No you don't need a legacy one, a regular one gives you 90% conversion anyway. If you can get one, get it. It adds a decent amount of damage.


Flasks:
Spoiler


Main clearing setup.

Use Dying Sun and Bottled Faith instead of the Quicksilver and Jade for bosses. But tbh you might not even need them, build already does stupid amounts of damage.



Jewels:
Spoiler


Look for multi and cast speed. Bonus points if you find one with 'Reduced Mana reserved', will make your life easier.


You can get one of these if you're still in process of getting the -3 mana of channeled skills cost craft, or don't have enlighten 4, or are struggling with mana sustain in general.


Zealotry and Hatred BIS mods for damage.

FAQ:
Spoiler

When do I switch to ES tree?
Spoiler
Whenever you have like 4-5k ES after switching. Check pob if you have have that about of ES if you switch, and change if you do.


Issues with mana reservation or sustaining Worb casting.
Spoiler
I'm not using the nodes leading upto sovereignty. Taking those should solve any reservation or casting issues. You might still need Enlighten.

If you don't want to take those, you definitely need:
-> -3 to channeled skills cost craft
-> Enlighten 4

You probably will also need some kind of 'Reduced Mana Reserved' on your jewels, either through Conquerors Efficiency or through corruptions.

With the watchers eye, for both stats on the jewel is quite expensive, which would you say would be better of the two.

You can check the damage comparison in pob, I'd say the hatred one most likely. Bosses are not always going to stand on top of the consecrated ground to take that 10% increased damage.
