Pro & Contra

Much life ~ up to 7k
Permafreeze Bosses up to T15
50% flat evade through Pandemonius Amulet against blinded enemys
No movement Skill
Cant run elemental Reflect maps


First we go to War Bringer because this will be our main heal skill
Than we go to Aspect of Carnage for pure DMG
And with the last 2 Points from the Uber Lab we take Rite of Ruin for free 25% attack speed (25% increased Attack Speed if you haven't Killed Recently) - because our totems kill, not we

we DONT take Pain Reaver because the totems dont leech life for us


Take the two Skill Points = Help Eramir



Detailed & Gem Links

The Debeon's Dirge is wich makes our Build so strong. It gives a huge movement and dps boost if we used a warcry recently (so we have to recast it all 4 secconds for maximum dmg output) and has a lot of cold dmg, but not the best attack speed. The best Corruption would be Culling Strike.

Gems: -> Ancestral Warchief -> Elemental Damage with Attacks -> Hypothermia -> Ruthless -> Concentrated effect -> Cold Penetration

The Devoto's Devotion gives us good movement speed, chaos res, attack speed and alot of dex. The best enchantment ist 40% Warchief increased AW totem dmg.

Gems: Enduring Cry -> Blood Magic -> Increased Duration -> Vaal Haste

We use Kaoms Heart because we need much. The best corruption would be +1 Max Resistance.

We use the Deathdoor Boots for Bleed immunity. Thats only my preference because i hate Bleeding. I think you can here choose what you prefer ;). There are two good enchantments. One is 10% additional chance to freeze but imo its not neccessary and the other is increased cold dmg when you got hit recently, wich i prefer.

I take the Blood Rage gem for additional 16% increased Attack speed. Keep in mind that if you do that, you loose alot of life regen (maybe not the best choice for T16+ ;)).

Gems: CWDT -> immortal call -> Stone Golem -> Blood Rage

We use Hirmsorrow Gloves for pure cold dps. Best corruption is the Elemental Weakness on hit.

Gems: Herald of Ice -> Vaal lightning Trap -> Hatred -> Vaal Grace

The Amulet we use is the Pandemonius. It gives us a huge dmg AND defense bonus: 20% Cold Penetration is realy nice and we blind EVERY enemy (execpt shaper) wich means 50% less chance to get hit by the blinded enemy wich attacks you (not spells).

You can also take a Biscos Collar, if u get the needed ~40% Cold res at your other gear

The Rins we choose are some wich good Resistance, Life, Elemental Dmg with Attacks and a good phys roll OR with flat cold dmg, but this is only better at 20-40 cold dmg+. BIS rings would be Opal rings with Deafening Essence of Suffering craft and increased Cold DMG - Good luck with that :D

Our belt is a rare one with good resitance, life and elemental dmg with attacks

The flask we use are only a freeze immunity flask (because we are immune to bleeding thx to Death's Door), Atziri's Promise for some additional dmg, Wise Oak for additional res (if we need them) and +15 Penetration for the element wich resistance are the highest, that we get easy by pick up the Tatse of Hate wich gives us additonal a good defense and offence. And last a movement flask because we dont use a movement skill.

Now we come to one of our main part of the Build. Rare jewels with chance to freeze, life and Cold dmg. Also some Intelligenz is a good option at the jewels, if you dont get it through other rare items

Skilltree at lvl 95

The Pantheon

The Major Pantheon i prefer is the Brine King wich provides free (almost) Stun/Freeze Immunity:

You cannot be Frozen if you've been Frozen Recently
You cannot be Stunned if you've been Stunned Recently

And wich is realy nice 50% reduced chill effect, wich means you dont care anymore about it!

The Minor Pantheon i prefer is the Abberath wich uneffected by Burning Ground and 50% reduced ignite duration

Booth Pantheons gives us good a good Buff against the downsides from the Death's Door Boots



For DMG:
40% increased Ancestral Warchief Totem Damage
Blood Rage grants additional 12% increased Attack Speed
For DEF:
150% increased Effect of the Buff granted by your Stone Golems
36% increased Enduring Cry Buff Effect


I dont realy know about that, sorry


For DMG:
Adds 45 to 68 Cold Damage if you've been Hit Recently <- Best DMG Enchantment
Damage Penetrates 10% of Enemy Elemental Resistances if you haven't Killed Recently <- also a good alternative
For DEF:
Regenerate 2% of Life and Mana per second if you were Hit Recently
For Utility:
10% increased Movement Speed if you haven't been Hit Recently
