[3.14] ShakCentral's Vortex For Everyone

Playing this build in hcssf currently and wondering if anyone on here has experience with that or any advice? Just barely got into maps and my gear is very basic from getting gear from the acts. Wondering if I should farm up for a shavs by cards, or chance to treasure prophecy, or just stick to a life form of the build til I get more es. Currently I'm hybrid life/es.

I know I need to farm syndicate for trigger craft, need to find a 5l, the simple things. If anyone has any expertise or a thing I have blanked on and forgot to help myself that would be nice.

Also I am at work so I can't post a pob, but my character should be viewable. Any kind of advice would be appreciated.
Guys i managed to craft this wand, so now i will be able to add a trigger mod and for the 2nd prefix should i add cold dot or increase spell damage?
Hey Shak and everyone,

awesome guide with great detail.

This may have been discussed, but I havent found it: can you elaborate on Empower (lvl4) as an alternate link for either vortex or cold snap?

Cheers

Question:

I have prism guardian shield, but i still cant use the 3 auras that are put in the shield in the guide. I can only use 2.

What am i missing?

The answer imo depends on the rest of your gear and skills. Try out both options in PoB, the results can differ significantly. For example, when I was looking for a new wand, even similar wands differed in DPS by hundreds of thousands. That is why I copied all the interesting ones into my PoB before buying to avoid any surprises.

Thanks for the build! Started in SSF and pushed to A8 pretty easily. Ended up migrating to really optimize the build and it's been a blast. Have done everything but The Feared and will try that soon. Crafted the gloves, belt and amulet thanks to some great guides in these comments. Think the amulet only cost around 7 ex to craft, got luck on the cold dot multi slam first time. Also made the switch to the non-curse aura cluster jewel as people have talked about here and that was a great change. I think my only upgrades left are a grabbing a vortex damage enchant helm (just been lazy), hatred/malevolence watchers eye, and double corrupted shavs/prism. Not sure if I wanna make the switch to a redeemer hubris circlet with -% cold res. Thanks for the guide and also people commenting here with great ideas. Here's POB:https://pastebin.com/qPdZ8YwZ

Your gear is properly insane. I just can't comprehend how you could get all that done in SSF.

> just been lazy

Yeah, right... XD

Haha, no I migrated from SSF after killing A8. I wanted to try the LL version and take build to the max cause I never dropped a Shavs! The belt/gloves/boots I crafted in SSF, bought or crafted rest of stuff after migrating.

I was doing most bosses in T16 maps with no problems then I switched to CI and aside from the fact I die a lot more often, I am having a ton of problems killing said bosses...not sure what I did wrong or what happened.


Literally any help would be nice.

I am not sure where to go aside from "just upgrade your gear 4Head" ...



This is my BOP : https://pastebin.com/Y7bX2PMK

If youd rather hit me up on discord, my discord is thirdparty#5123



You have the trigger enchant on the wand but have not taken elemental equilibrium on the tree. doing that would nearly double your dps. That would put you around 400K on sirus level bosses, still well below the 1.2 - 1.3M top of the range for the CI version. So then you have a choice to stay in CI, continue to level and improve your gear and put a few passive points into your cluster jewel (right now it's not doing anything for you), or make the switch to LL

looking at your tree and gear in more detail another suggestion would be to go to an Intuitive Leap jewel (about 30c) and free up some nodes. probably the best way to see how a full budget CI setup looks is to go back to Shaks' POB, select the "final CI tree with cluster" for the passive tree, then drop off nodes from the right "end" of the tree until you get to the number of passives for your current level and select all the "SSF/budget" gear pieces in the items section

Can you briefly share the recipe for amulet? Do you roll +1 on both influenced bases and then use awakeners orb to combine? What if I roll +1 gem and let's say two mods which I do not like. Shall I get rid of them so I have only 1 mod on each bases which is +1 gem? Which influence do you use to keep and destroy? min ilvl?

Sorry if asked too much at once :D
