[3.9] Icicle of the Tyrant | 1.4M DPS (per Mine) | All Content | Budget and Expensive versions

Hello guys,

I'm here with another build.

This time we will talk about Icicle Mine.
While reading you can see that this build can be both Budget and Expensive.

ABOUT THE SKILL GEM
Spoiler

Icicle Mine throws a remote mine that when detonated fires several long-range icicle projectiles in random directions that deal cold damage, launching more icicles with more consecutive mine detonated. The mines have an aura which grants increased critical strike chance against enemies in the aura.




PROS/CONS
Spoiler


- High DPS
- Good map clear
- Good survability
- Good boss killer
- Can do every map with every mod
- Freeze , Shock and Ignite everything
- Good spell and attack dodge
- You are always full of power and inspiration charges



- Life is not so high
- No leech (we will regen life using mine)
- Mine playstile
- Prepare to use your flasks like a Pathfinder
- We need to get Cold Res as highest one for Wise Oak



DPS powered by PoB

ITEM EXPLANATION
Spoiler

In this section I will guide you in choosing your items , both budget and expensive version.
Remember to get at least 1 added flat fire damage to spells, or you won't ignite enemies.

Helmet
Spoiler



Starkonja is budget version , Crown of the Tyrant is bis.
You can start without enchant , or just a rare helmet with life and some res.


Body Armour
Spoiler


This item is mandatory.
You can start with tabula rasa , any good rare 6L or skin of the loyal without corruption.


Weapons
Spoiler



Weapon choice is a bit tricky, but not so difficult.
You can start with any dagger , wand or sceptre that gives you Spell Damage / Elemental Damage and Crit Multiplier.
Then you can upgrade them searching for "non-chaos as extra chaos" and at least try to get "+1 All Cold Spell Skill Gems"


Amulet
Spoiler



As you can see, we will use an amulet with Life - Crit Multi and Spell / Cold Damage.
Divine Judgment allocation is not mandatory, but will boost up your DPS


Rings
Spoiler



In the expensive version those two items are mandatory , of course.
If you are running budget version, just use 2 rare rings with life - res and some damage.


Belt
Spoiler



Search for life and res, and if you can, the new mod that increase Spell Damage while using flask.


Gloves
Spoiler




Nothing too special here, just gloves with life and res (budget).
Gloves with Life - Res and Spell Damage for Expensive one.
Add enchant if you want.


Boots
Spoiler




If you are Budget version you can use Atziri's Step, that give us good movement speed, dodge and life.
If you are expensive, just use one good rare.

Enchant is mandatory.



FLASKS
Spoiler



Those flasks can be used both in Budget and Expensive version, because the cost is not so high.

Remember : Wise Oak works only if cold res is the highest one!

You should rename the Ascendancy part as Pantheon. You didn't detail out what order of Ascendancies to get either for that section of the guide.

Probably should post up a video as well of something like a T16 map including a metamorph, I'm a bit skeptical that 1.4M per mine DPS is completely applicable in game, but then again you got your Icicle Mine to reach level 28 and you're stacking a ton of crit multi (easy to get crit with icicle).

Good suggestions, I will update Ascendacy ASAP.
I'll try to record a Video while playing on T16 + Metamorph, so you can see the real power.
Stay tuned.

Your PoB damage is flawed as mines cannot gain Inspiration charges. You are not spending mana to use the skill but reserve mana. It's a different mechanic.

You are wrong Sir, you gain Inspiration Charges.
Look at this Screenshot :

So whatever happened to posting a video demonstrating this build let alone the inflated 1.4M dps per mine claim? Honestly I doubt it's truly feasible in game these days anyway unless you get literally perfect legacy gear that's worth several mirrors.

Right now I can't post video.
I'm busy at work and my free time is equal to 0, just the time to answer you in this thread.
I'm very sorry about this, but you don't need any super mirrored gear, you just need to know how to play.
Kept you waiting - huh?
