[3.13] Cold BV (20M DPS) | Tanky | Zoom-Zoom Mapping | All Content | Maven Challenge 4/4 Done

Example POB

POB with Semi min-maxed gears (20M BV dps without vaal RF)

https://pastebin.com/PvSq49LP

260M dps (lol) if using BF/BB switch.

Bandit: kill all or Alira

PRO:
- Tanky with very high regen, MOM, high phy/ele/chaos mitigation
- Tier0 mapping speed (about 200% move speed), exploding whole screen.
- All boss encounters including Maven, A9 Sirus, The Hidden, The Forgotten, The Formed, The Twisted, The Feared with 8 mods.
- Gears reasonably obtainable especially with Havest.

CON:
- Without endgame gear, one needs to swap gems to Blade Blast for bossing
- Not league start viable (use Archmage Blade Blast to league start then transition to this build)
- Cannot do Ele reflect without gear swaps.
- player Life/Mana regen map mod reduces our regen a lot (turn off RF or reroll map to be safe).


Main Gem Link
Blade Vortex: Blade Vortex - Controlled Destruction - Unleashed - Hypothermia - Empower - Intensify

If need to switch to BB/BF for bossing
Blade Blast (same colour as BV): Blade Blast - Controlled Destruction - Energy Leech - Hypothermia - Empower - Intensify

Bladefall: Bladefall - Spell Cascade - Faster Casting - Unleashed


Tip:
Use vortex / enduring cry / arcane cloak on cooldown. Mash mana flask for power charge (it wont run out anyway).

Not necessary at all. +1 active skill gem would be much better.

It is explody BV with perma-flask running at warp speed.

For similar effect you may search for videos of Assassin HOA fire BV or pathfinder Cold/Fire BV.

This build also works extremely well with HH.

I see that you already have a high lvl Pathfinder.

This build suits Pathfinder really well as well (maybe even better as a Pathfinder if you go EO instead of Crit).
50-60ex is enough to make this build work for end game?

I think my items cost less than that:

Major spenders are the bow (9-12ex) You may also use 2x wand or sceptre with trigger Assassin's mark for even more dps.

Watcher's eye 7ex

Transcendant Flesh 4ex

Explody chest

Indigon/pandemonious/Omeyocan a few ex

Clusters a few ex

Rest are just chaos items.

i am now at lv89, seems pretty smooth, just wonder if below 2 items will make the build a big different?

Watcher's eye 7ex

Transcendant Flesh 4ex

Watcher's eye would make your damage 100% cold so you can run phy reflect maps. It also equals to about 10% dps in my pob.

Transcendant flesh is not needed at all. It is just a dps upgrade if you happen to use Lethal pride (Akoya) version.

In fact, I have respec my Scion to a much more tanky version with Divine Flesh. So I stopped using Berserk and Transcendant Flesh all together.

Latest pob

(with diamond flask, 9M BV 112M BB):
https://pastebin.com/WWi7nPsP

If Basalt flask is used, I would be sitting at 52% hard physical dmg reduction with 7M BV dps 90M BB dps

This build has a lot room for improvement in term of gear:
1: spell do double dmg implicit bow - 15% dps increase
2: unnerved glove - 10% more for BV
3: 5% phy reduction on belt/boot/chest/amulet: another 20% physical reduction - you can then swim in Sirus blacck storm

edit: a +2 necklace with 35% crit multi would also give 10-15% more dps. But at the cost of 10-20ex and you lose the blind.
