3.5 Chaos/Cold Storm Brand - Uber Elder✓ 10k EHP ✓ Budget ✓ HC ✓ Hierophant or Occultist

With the ascendancy changes, this build has gone from ARC to Storm Brand. Because it's simply better, better clear, better damage, better survivability

The Concept and the gear are the same

How added chaos damage and double dipping works:


MOST of our damage is actually CHAOS

The damage comes from chaos added as elemental, so there is no need to scale normal arc damage or trying to shock as that does not work on bosses.

For example I have 76% added as extra chaos damage, when converting I get 76% + 76% x 80 = 136% of my damage is added TWICE as chaos (once from cold damage and again from lightning damage)! Which is further multiplied by Withering aura and negative chaos resistance from Void Beacon!


You can use Corrupted Energy jewel to split the damage taken between health/mana/energy shield making use of triple recovery. Optional

Bandits: Allira. Pantheon, arrakalli

This build has 9k ehp, ES leech from totems aswell as life/mana/mom regen, and over 1.5 mil dps with 3 totems. It clears extremely well and shatters mobs. Has no extremely expensive gear to scale damage like other arc builds.

My Gear:

Early Leveling Guide and Tree:

Spoiler
Leveling 1-12 using Lightning Tendrils and Orb of Storm linked to Arcane Surge. After level 12 equip Arc. After reaching ansestral bond and achieving the uniques required bellow, begin the transition to wearing Incandecent Heart.

Rare and Unique items list of priority:

1. 2 x Call of the Brotherhood Rings
2. Incandecent Heart (wear only after capping your chaos resistance)
3 Eber's Unification or The broken Crown if you cannot yet cap your Chaos resistances.
4. % of Elemental gain as chaos (Scepter, Wand, Dagger)
5. % of Non Chaos damage gain as chaos (Elder Amulet)

Capping resists:

It should be fairly easy

We have the following rares to cap our resists with aswell as jewels:

1. Gloves
2. Helmet
3. Belt
4. Amulet
5. Jewels

aswell as 15% resists from Allira

We also get 16% resists from ES nodes in both shadow and templar tree. If you still find it hard to cap res, get the witch resists nodes!

Cool Build idea prob. gonna try it in 3.5 if nothing is changed about the build

you should add a PoB Link to the post though (found it under one of the videos)

also any chance you could showcase how this build clears maps/delve?

The clear is just like any arc totem build, but it freezes and shatters mobs and one shots packs. Watch the shaper clear video :)
testing
1st time posting :)
you should edit your post with the paste bin in it, and also include what bandit you recommend in this build if any,what gods you like for it, and an order of ascendancy that you chose for new people to comprehend better.
just some constructive criticism :)

It's in the video, but added now. It's a pretty advanced build mechanics I doubt many people will try it out, especially newbies lol.
Why do you use 2 call of the brotherhood? I think 1 is enough for shatter
Also, can you tell me why elemental focus gem can let you apply elemental ailments? Is it because critical strike let you do that?

2 calls of brotherhood is for damage, more conversion is more added chaos damage. And also more cold is augmented by frostbomb.

Elemental focus is only for bosses for more damage and because we cant chill or freeze them
Your build looks super cool, and frankly quite cheap considered it's capabilities. Only expensive stuff is the 6L.

Very good work, I'll probably try it sometimes.
Why did you take the minion nodes that's on the left of the tree?
