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

Hey guys, here is another cast on crit build. Ice nova is pretty good for ultimatums. This league I've played occultist and assassin versions and some people asked about inquisitor.

Build Cost
- Medium Budget: 10-50 ex

Before asking a question please read!!!

Critical Strike Chance: Aim for %100 crit chance.
How do we get crit chance?
- Shaper's Touch has crit implicit
- Precision
- Inspiration Charges
- 514 Strenght = 514% Inc crit chance
- Flasks
- Cluster Jewels
- Skill Tree

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.
Shaper's Touch and max lvl precision is enough to get %100 hit chance.

Attack rate: Optimal aps is 7.57 with %14 cooldown recovery. Don't go over it.

If you wanna play with more or less attack speed check out the link: https://www.reddit.com/r/pathofexile/comments/e5pyr8/the_cyclone_cast_on_critical_strike_cooldown/

Leveling: I recommend you to level as coldslinger vortex. Here is the link of that video: https://youtu.be/AJRAAJC2q2E
Leveling gems are in the description and leveling tree is in pob link.

Occultist, Assassin or Inquisitor? Which one is better? What are the differences?
- Inquisitor has a lot of regen. Elemental ailment immunity. Easy to get crit chance with attribute stacking. Ignores enemies elemental resist.
- Assassin is faster with elusive. Easy to gain power charges and crit chance.
- Occultist has inc AoE. Freeze and chill immunity. Additional curse. Nearby enemies have -20% cold res.
- They all have over 4m dps.

Check out other versions to decide what to play.

Hey, great guide. I'm almost there, I just can't afford double cold to the core and the other 4 nodes. I'm currently using just one and all the other nodes but I realized that one is a big boost on dps, so what other node could I possible replace to go for double cold to the core untill I can afford the same ones from the guide?

please help me on where to enhance my character in general! I will really appreciate any help! Everything like, APS, CDR, how to achieve please will be veeery important! I am getting basically 1 shot everywhere.

Character name: StormAju

Is that build still viable after mana changes (mana cost for triggered skills) ?

Ci/LL builds cannot do the new end game league mechanic content. Certain modifiers will kill you instantly.

That being said this is from 3.14 before the COC mana Changes.

So if you do COC exactly like this build you will not have enough mama to sustain the mama required with 7.67 APS when Ice nova proc's.

The way around this I have just ran a hybrid life/es and a mana flask that never ends.
Problem is scaling DPS passed 1-mil and also sustaining mana on bosses.

Full rework would be required so don't be fooled.
