[3.6] WO of Agony. Tri Herald Winter Orb [SSFHC build]

Hello

I'm an old gamer gone casual due to three young kids and a full-time job. I love creating builds and testing them in SSF HC. This will be my fourth SSFHC build guide.

This is a very versatile build. It utilizes Winter Orb and Herald of Ice for pack clear, Herald of Thunder to apply curse and Herald of Agony + Lightning Spire trap to kill bosses.
Defences are Dodge, high ehp pool, Temp Chains and Chill/Freeze.

Here is a video of the build in action with nasty mods in Synthesis SSFHC

Gear
Spoiler

Helmet
Spoiler
Get as much life as you can and some resists. +2 Minions mandatory.
You can also use an elder helmet with minion damage support but it might leave you with too low mana.



Chest
Spoiler
Life and resists.
Anything not eva/es will be too hard to color so I wouldn't recommend it.



Weapon
Spoiler
High spell dmg, cold dmg, cast speed, added flat ele dmg and non-ele/cold dmg added as chaos dmg.



Shield
Spoiler
High life, everything else is a bonus. Mabey some resists and spell dmg.



Gloves
Spoiler
Life and resists.



Boots
Spoiler
Life, resists and movement speed.



Belt
Spoiler
Stygian or leather belt with life and resists.



Jewelry
Spoiler
Life, resists, spell dmg, cold dmg, cast speed.



Flasks
Spoiler
I like this combination best.



You can use Atziri flask if you feel you need the dps. I‘d rather use two instant life flasks.


Gems
Spoiler
Life, flat added ele dmg, utility like Hinder/Phasing, cast speed etc


My current gear
Spoiler


Leveling
Spoiler
I level with Frost Bolt into Holy Flame Totem + Infused Channeling + Added Fire until lvl 31 and have done the Library quest. Then I use WO, Herald of Ice and Herald of Agony. Herald of Thunder is added after Cruel lab.
Level in Blood Aquaduct. From there getting to maps should be a breeze.


Ascendancy
Spoiler
Start getting Pendulum of Destruction and Mastermind of Discord. Then get Shaper of Desolation and lastly Beacon of Ruin.


Pantheon and Bandits
Spoiler
Kill all bandits.

Hi,

This build looks phenomenal for basically 0 investment. Can you tell me a bit about the order of skills you took?

Thanks

It really depends on how many links you got. I switch to WO after library quest if I have 4L and use HoI and HoT. After cruel lab I add HoAg. Get 4L Lightning Spire trap at lvl 28 for easy bosskilling.

The answer came a bit late, I'm already at the mapping stage :D

Really good build, I flew through the game only using a tabula rasa with WO and 2 heralds with no support gems.

Huge thanks

I ripped my Golemancer the other night and Im giving this build a shot. Looks like fun to play, and since I invested most of my currency in golem stuff this build looks good... Entered act3 this morning before work, hoping to be mid 50s or so by tonights end and trying the build out...

Yeah sorry about that, I don't check the forums often enough. I looked at your character and it seems you forgot to take Elemental Overload keystone. It will up your dps alot so I really recommend you pick it up asap.
