[3.14] CoC Ice Nova Build | Occultist | Ultimatum | Path of Exile 3.14

Hey guys, I play coc ice nova build every league with different ascendancies and now it's occultist time. Cast on crit builds are always fun to play. Also this build pretty solid for ultimatums. This is not a budget/starter build but not that expensive too. You can reach to this level with medium amount of investment.

Edit: To clarify medium investment thing.
- Low Budget: 0-10 ex
- Medium Budget: 10-50 ex
- High Budget: +50 ex
I'm gonna use this scale for the future builds.

Before asking a question please read!!!

Critical Strike Chance: Aim for %100 crit chance obviously but as long as you have +80 you are fine. (for cyclone)
How can I get crit chance?
- Power charges (Try to get +1 from helmet)
- Diamond Flask, Cinderswallow with crit chance mod, Bottled Faith
- Inspiration charges
- Precision, Ice Golem
- Jewels

Cooldown recovery: We need at least %14 for this build.
How can I get cdr?
- Awakened Cast on Critical (minimum lvl 3)
- Shaper/Crusader belt
- Shaper/Crusader boots

Accuracy: We need %100 hit chance.
I got flat accuracy from helmet, one ring and gloves. Also using level 21 precision.

Optimal aps for cyclone is 7.57. Don't go over it.

Leveling: I leveled up with my coldslinger vortex build and I recommend you the same. Here is the link of that video: https://youtu.be/AJRAAJC2q2E
Leveling gems are in the description and leveling tree is in pob link.

Hello, i play only for mirror of Kalandra
Would the Cooldown modifier on Dreamquest slippers help here proc the cyclone?
when should i switch to this from coldslinger vortex?
How's this build with HH? Will it be okay, will it be better, or is it not efficient?
