[2.4] The Rimefire Witch - Ignite Ice Spear by CantripN (6K+ Life, Acro, VP, MoM)

In case someone wants to try this as ES for Breach:


Obviously, that's a Low-life tree, but it's a no-brainer getting it to be CI.

DPS should be roughly the same, depends on gear can be more or less. Perhaps more if eveything is PERFECT. Curses would be used on Blashpemy as Low-life, and I'd probably use a +3 Cold Gems Bow with Crit Multi and Proj Speed along with a Soul Strike Quiver. You should try and keep Power Charges up, as the 4 you have are needed to cap Crit at 95%.

Go for Temp Chains + Proj Weak + War Mark/Flammability in this instance.

Pyre means no Prolif, sadly, but that's not as bad as I used to think, having tested it.

Hey I was playing a support with you for a few maps this league and I really like the idea of your build. So I want to play it next league, what do you suggest is better the life version or the CI one you just posted? : )
IGN - Aerith_THOR
I've played the Life one only, hard to say. In theory, ES might be better able to survive one shots or even handle Reflect. On the other hand, for general mapping, Acrobatics and Vaal Grace go a long way.

I'm going to say both work, life is probably cheaper. If you can go Low Life, that's probably the most DPS eventually.

Final update until Breach, and my favorite version so far!
Uses Pyre, doesn't use Avatar of Fire, has Equilibrium, but still has Proliferation (so much better for clear speed and sanity) thanks to Southbound.
I will note that any version NOT using Avatar of Fire is probably better off with a +3 Cold Bow with Crit Multi and Proj Speed, and a Drillneck or a Rare Quiver (or Soul Strike if ES). I just don't have those atm.
The new Fire amulets from Breach have great potential if "Covered in Ash" is relaible, which remains to be seen - 20% INCREASED FIRE DAMAGE TAKEN is HUGE.

Life: 6405
Mana: 966

Nice Build you got there - i am playing it in Breach atm.
Sadly i am still on a 4L at 78, but currency and luck seem to be equally rare for me atm.
On the other Hand, i lack that much damage atm, only 4k Life are abit squishy at times.
I don´t feel comfortable with MoM right now, think i will change to some Mana regen on Gear change the tree a bit.

Yeah, MoM isn't useful if you don't one shot most things. Your mana will just suffer too much.
Glad you're enjoying yourself :)

Hey!

Currently started this build in Breach, do you play it this league?
What tree/gear would you recommend for this league?

I play on hardcore so I want to focus quite alot on survivability, and currency is somewhat scarce as it is the start of the league.

Which ascendancy did you pick and in what order?

The build seems fun, thanks for sharing!
