Busy playing your elementalist build and totally loving it, and now I see this build...bro why haven't I discovered thee earlier xD Keep the builds coming bro:D +rep*9000

Also, the reason behind this build not being a league starter is due to the fossil crafting and the ring crafts, I would assume?

Thanks once again :D


tyty :D nice to hear good feedback!

I didn't had time to test it bare naked (ssf like) and optimize it to start the league with.
Although theoretically you can start the league with anything, general rule of thumb is that attack based builds (ranged or melee) are worse than casters. One simple reason, casters scale damage out of skill gem level. Attack builds need items and constant upgrades to keep up. Since you'll have close to no currency at the league start it will make your progression slower with attack based char.

Good starter build should carry you well into the maps with 0 or very little currency.


Fantastic. Thanks for the clarity friend :) I am really excited to take your elementalist as a starter :D then progress into this bad boy :D Thanks and keep tho solid build guides :D
OP,

Excellent and informative guide!

What do you think of anointing Pandemonious with Words of Glory passive instead of Fangs of Frost?

Tyvm! :D

I don't think it's worth it. Fangs of Frost give a lot of damage for quite modest cost. Battle Cry node is better to me if you want some utility.
Although Battle Cry won't show damage numbers increase, in real situations it positively affects dps by not interrupting your hits (Cry has 0.25s cast time).

You can play it on 5L just with ~50% less damage.

5L Glacial Hammer - Elemental Damage with Attacks - Multistrike - Fortify - Damage on Full life

For mapping use Ancestral Call gem instead of Damage on Full life

Nice guide man! I love the hipster glacial hammer!

Curious as to why this isn't a league start viable build? If you take away the Kaoms (including the POB workaround it still shows over 2m shaper dps and over 5k HP with a tab....could be worth a league start in 3.9 since everyone will be running necro or bows?

Edit: Here is your PoB but with some more week one viable items (including two leveling staves that should be cheap days 1-5)

Ty for the nice words! :)

Here is the thing, you should be more focused on getting to maps part and initial mapping to establish some currency (for end-game build) without almost anything to buy along the way (utter garbage gear that you find on the floor must work). That's what starters are for.
For that task, this isn't the optimal build/skill for. You can do it but harder/slower than with spells. End-game performance with right gear is another pair of sleeves. xD

ps
trust me, good starter is no where near that level of gear you have in PoB

Can't wait for the leveling guide (newbie player here !), skills and maybe uniques that can help you along the way.

I don't mind having to play 1 more week than the other OP league starters to decently run the first maps, and I only play melee anyway ^^ (maybe I'll drop an exa in the campaign like last league too, that's karma rewarding melee players)

Btw you may have to change your avatar Torstein, not glacial and manly enough after you've made this build :)
I like this build, while looking for something off meta and little different. Probably I'll give a try to it.
But have one question. According to patch notes,The added Maximum Life and increased Life modifier from Pristine Fossils can no longer roll, how much it influence build and how it replace eventualy? Just any rare helmet with high life rolls and other stats you use in build? Or what fossil use instead pristine?

It will be the same crap because you can influence your rings with 20% increased life mods from Metamorph specific new currency. Helmet will lose around +30 to life which you will regain thru rings... xD nothing build breaking. In any case with decent gear you will have 7k+ eHP.
