[3.18] Vortex & Cold Snap Build (League Starter) | Occultist | Sentinel | Path of Exile 3.18

Hey guys, here is the vortex occultist league starter build. This is the life based low-life version with petrifed blood. You can go CI or es based low-life version. This version is good but damage is not really there. I recommend you to play this with Shavronne and Prism Guardian when you have enough currency.

Build Cost
- Low Budget: 0-20 ex

Curses: I have curse on hit rings to apply curses. They are not expensive but it might be hard to get at beginning of the league. You can use bane or arcanist brand to apply curses. I prefer Frostbite and Elemental Weakness. It's possible to use a defence curse like Temporal Chains or Enfeeble.

Endurance Charges: Enduring Composure (Cluster Notable)

- Awakened Gems (Controlled Destruction, Elemental Focus, Swift Affliction)
- Watcher's Eye (#% increased Cold Damage while affected by Hatred)
- Cluster Jewels
Large (Cold Damage): Deep Chill, Prismatic Heart, Widespread Destruction
Medium (Cold Damage Over Time): Deep Chill, Cold-Blooded Killer

Leveling: Leveling gems and trees are in the video.
