[3.7] LL Winter Orb Trickster



3.7 changes:

-> Pob shows a 50% nerf to damage (even when chanelling). Not sure why. Maybe I misunderstood something, maybe duration?
-> Ran a chimera. Single target is fine, clearing is fine. Obviously not as good as before but you can be the judge of how much worse. Check out the video.

Updated pob and the tree. Other than the tree everything else stays the same.

Please let me know if you guys see anything off in the guide. Updates are annoying and tedious to do sometimes.


Note: Post all your questions in this thread, 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.


PoB


Levelling
Spoiler


I didn't actually level this, just respeccted another character into it, so I'm not sure how good Winter Orb is for levelling. You could level as EK. Freezing pulse is also good apparently.

29 points


58 points


78 points


107 points


116 points - Switch to LL when you have your shavs and decent ES gear. You'll need to respec the life nodes to ES nodes.

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. Look for free prefix to craft '- # to mana cost of skills'.

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.


Zealotry and Hatred BIS mods for damage.


VERY optional.

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.
