3.17 UPDATE + POB:

Spoiler

Supreme Ego + Essence Worm = dead, we loose more than 2 millions DPS..

So we no longer need to find a Skin of the Lord with the Supreme Ego mod on it, we can use the mod we want

- Mind over Matter, so we don't need to allocate it on the tree! we gain 1 passive point

or

- Ancestral Bound, we no longer need to path to that area, we potentially gain more passive points

or

- Iron Will, we gain some little damage thanks to some strength

Your choice!


Here is the updated PoB for 3.17:

https://pastebin.com/pZNWWB8p (5.7 millions DPS)



(this takes into account the buff to the skill base damage, make sure to remove the line in the Custom Modifiers once PoB gets updated)

Hello


If you love totem gameplay, you'll love this one!

Why Shockwave Totem? because we don't need Totem Support! And we don't need that annoying body armor that curses you!

Why Cold? because we freeze everything! makes the gameplay a little bit more safe!

Why no flask? I hate flasks, so i make my builds that don't need them!

You are free to use the flasks you want!


--

Super strong, fun, relax build, only 1 button press (2 for bosses to put frost bomb so we can curse them and stop their regen)

(I'll improve the guide over the next few days to add gameplay videos and how to level it etc)

--

This is not a league start friendly build due to needing mandatory uniques!

Bandits: kill all for the 2 passive points!


Items to get:

Weapon:
Spoiler


You need a wand/scepter/rune dagger with the following mods:
- +1 all phys or +1 all gem
- (Redeemer) Hatred has XX% increased Aura Effect
- Cast Speed
- increased Spell Damage
- (optional) Crit

Here is what i managed to craft:




Shield:

Spoiler

We'll pick a base shield with lot of block
Here are the mods you need to look for:
- (Shaper) +1 totem
- Life
- (optional, to min max, awaken orb it) (Redeemer) +2 minimum Frenzy

Here is what i managed to craft:




Amulet:

Spoiler


Best in slot is The Pandemonius:


Until you can find one, we look for:
- Implicit with both Str/Dex (shockwave totem and cold gems need!)
Mods:
- Life
- Crit
- (optional to min max) +1 all phys



Body Armor:

Spoiler


It's mendatory! you'll need the Skin of the Lords unique!





Ring:

Spoiler


Mendatory! you'll need the Astral Projector Ring

Otherwise our build won't work, it makes it so the Shockwave Totem cast its skill on the enemies directly!

Another mendatory ring is the Essence Worm, so we can buff our Hatred aura







Glove:

Spoiler


Hrimsorrow, super cheap, it is used to convert most of our damage to cold! (on top of the 40% from cold mastery, so a total of 90% to cold!)



/!\ If you use a Divergent Shockwave Totem, it has already 40% convert to cold, so it is not necessary to use that unique, and instead you can use a rare glove to fix your resistences / life, and to have the new implicit modifiers (check my PoB for 3.17)






Boost:

Spoiler

Life + Res! nothing fancy

This looks really cool, id be very interested in trying this out. do you have an eta on when the rest of the guide will be out?
The guide is kinda cool but i have a question ...
how the HECK did you achieve ailment immunity ?
you're using the old essence worm ring, the new one doesnt work with the build

Hatred is the only aura he is using. the change to essence worm doesn't effect this build. you can look at his character in scourge league and see hes using it just fine.
Still leveling only lvl 74 but this is super fun and it slaps. I think I'll use it as a dedicated bosser.

Glad you are liking it! i love it, it is my main build every leagues since metamorph :D

One quick update guys, for the amulet, we drop the rare one and instead we use:



https://www.poewiki.net/wiki/The_Pandemonius

It is super strong for our build!!


We chill, and therefore we penetrate 22% cold damage with it!!!

On top of blinding the enemies!!! super safe!! (only 1ex)


For the anoint we go for https://www.poewiki.net/wiki/Surveillance


Since we spawn 6 totems, enemies and specially bosses get 6% damage increase! + the 30% of the passive

Here is an updated PoB:

Tips for fixing stat requirements: use Scourge items!

I had a ton of extra cold res, so i went for this:
