[3.9] Icicle of the Tyrant | 1.4M DPS (per Mine) | All Content | Budget and Expensive versions

Hello guys,

I'm here with another build.

This time we will talk about Icicle Mine.
While reading you can see that this build can be both Budget and Expensive.

ABOUT THE SKILL GEM
Spoiler

Icicle Mine throws a remote mine that when detonated fires several long-range icicle projectiles in random directions that deal cold damage, launching more icicles with more consecutive mine detonated. The mines have an aura which grants increased critical strike chance against enemies in the aura.




PROS/CONS
Spoiler


- High DPS
- Good map clear
- Good survability
- Good boss killer
- Can do every map with every mod

- No leech (we will regen life using mine)
- Mine playstile
- Prepare to use your flasks like a Pathfinder
- We need to get Cold Res as highest one for Wise Oak

ITEM EXPLANATION
Spoiler

In this section I will guide you in choosing your items , both budget and expensive version.
Remember to get at least 1 added flat fire damage to spells, or you won't ignite enemies.

Helmet
Spoiler



Starkonja is budget version , Crown of the Tyrant is bis.
You can start without enchant , or just a rare helmet with life and some res.


Body Armour
Spoiler


This item is mandatory.
You can start with tabula rasa , any good rare 6L or skin of the loyal without corruption.


Weapons
Spoiler



Weapon choice is a bit tricky, but not so difficult.
You can start with any dagger , wand or sceptre that gives you Spell Damage / Elemental Damage and Crit Multiplier.
Then you can upgrade them searching for "non-chaos as extra chaos" and at least try to get "+1 All Cold Spell Skill Gems"


Amulet
Spoiler



As you can see, we will use an amulet with Life - Crit Multi and Spell / Cold Damage.
Divine Judgment allocation is not mandatory, but will boost up your DPS


Rings
Spoiler



In the expensive version those two items are mandatory , of course.
If you are running budget version, just use 2 rare rings with life - res and some damage.


Belt
Spoiler



Search for life and res, and if you can, the new mod that increase Spell Damage while using flask.


Gloves
Spoiler




Nothing too special here, just gloves with life and res (budget).
Gloves with Life - Res and Spell Damage for Expensive one.
Add enchant if you want.


Boots
Spoiler




If you are Budget version you can use Atziri's Step, that give us good movement speed, dodge and life.
If you are expensive, just use one good rare.

Enchant is mandatory.



FLASKS
Spoiler



Those flasks can be used both in Budget and Expensive version, because the cost is not so high.

Remember : Wise Oak works only if cold res is the highest one!

I started the character using mines , collecting some decent items while mapping.
You can go 4L until A10, then you need Tabula Rasa to map (and at least 3k life and 75% all elemental resistances)
