[3.13] Coldslinger | Vortex | Creeping Frost | League Start | Endgame | SSF | CI/LL | Max Block

hello guys,

didnt play for a while and decided to follow this guide (CI version) - now i want to ask what i can do to

1) improve my gear
2) what to level up at the talent tree (level 85)
3) how to get more tanky (im getting oneshooted with 4k energy shield somehow at the low tier maps? - if someone can explain me that)
4) what i can do to see the enemy attacks when everything on the screen is filled with vortex (can i turn it off somehow?)

thanks in advance, cheers
Hi everyone!!

Any alternative quality gem to consider?
I'm considering playing this build and wanted to ask you what the main difference is between this and a normal vortex occultist.

The main damaging ability is still vortex from what I saw but the clear speed seems to be better because of the frostbolt interaction but I read somewhere that the sDPS is a lot lower.
fun build where does all 4 of those rare jewels go in the tree cant seem to figure out where they are suppose to go

For me this build is way faster in term of mapping, and it's a kind of lazy build to play as you only use your mouse (LMB for vortex and RMB for Frenzy/ PS). And it's amazing for ritual because you cast 1 or 2 times and then the screen is filled with vortex.

But this build is also more squishy as most of your mana reservation is for SpellSlinger, you don't have many mana left for defensive layers (expect if you can get helmet echant for Spellslinger mana reservation)

In term of damage, it's enough I think. I have 2M DPS on Vortex alone and can actually melt bosses. I killed A8, Shaper, Elder deathless with this build (but die a lot to Chimera LOL). It takes like 10 seconds to kill T16 bosses.

If you are interseted, I actually wanna sell this build to fund my next characters. PM me for more information. My PoB is:

For sure phantasmal vortex, 40 increased damage when can on frostbol is much better then 10% increased aoe

Guys, this build and the post and all the content in it is amazing. They helped me a lot to move forward.

I managed to get to LL (lvl 92) 8000 ES, 2.5kk DPS (not sirus dps) but came across a post from the great Path of Matth (2 months ago) about his version of Cold Dot Slinger.

Uffff, he's sick. Insane. Change my variation to yours (except for the passive ancestry tree).

Now he feels much faster, much more robust and my DPS climbed to 4KK !!!

So you have Malediction but only 1 curse?

And 2 Sulphur flasks? I didn't think they would stack.

According to the POB you don't have discipline active? And not able to reserve it.

Would it not make sense to use power siphon, if you get Frenzy charges from Cold Snap anyway?

Other than that, I can't see what else than the Frenzy charges, should make it feel that much faster. Double cluster setup is cool, though, and very high dmg :)

Unrelated, for my own setup, just got the Shav's on SSF! Lucky Blight Unique chest :)

Already have Eye of Chayula and farming splinters, just need to chance/drop the shield, and I can go LL on SSF!
Still in the mud

Your version is kind of weird... You have way way too much res.IMO the POM version is good only if you have budget to afford it, like the echant helmet to reduce mana reservation, it costs 14 exalts. Evidently you don't have it, so you can't use Discipline (1000 ES lost).

Get a frostbite on hit ring, then you can run double curse.

Been playing around with this build a lot, can someone check my logic here?

Lets say I added fire damage onto Power Siphon, and kept Lightning damage Brand on the wand


Would this now cause vortex to DoT at -50% resist cause of Elemental Equilibrium?
