[3.18] CoC Ice Nova Build | Occultist | Sentinel | Path of Exile 3.18

Hey guys, cast on crit ice nova occultist build is here. This is %14 cdr, 7.57 aps version. %52 cdr version requires too much work and it's expensive so I'm not going for that.

Build Cost
- Medium Budget: 10-50 ex


Before asking a question please read.

Mana: How do I sustain mana?
- Non-Channelling Skills have # to Total Mana Cost mod on rings
- Replica Conqueror's Efficiency
- 1% reduced Mana Cost of Skills per 10 Devotion mod on Militant Faith
- Mana leech from Essence Sap (Amulet annoint)

Critical Strike Chance: Aim for %100 crit chance.
- Power charges
- Diamond Flask with crit chance mod
- Inspiration charges
- Precision
- Ascendancy, Skill tree
- Cospri's Malice

Cooldown recovery: We need at least %14 for this build. I got it from awakened gem because it's really cheap this league.
- Awakened Cast on Critical (minimum lvl 3)
- Shaper/Crusader belt
- Shaper/Crusader boots

Accuracy: We need %100 hit chance.
I got flat accuracy from one ring and using level 20 precision. Also Unnatural Instinct gives us some inc global accuracy.

Aps: With 14% cooldown recovery optimal aps for cyclone is 7.57. 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/

Militant Faith: Dominus to get Inner Conviction keystone.
Try to get two of these mods:
- 4% increased Elemental Damage per 10 Devotion
- 4% increased Area Damage per 10 Devotion
- 1% increased effect of Non-Curse Auras per 10 Devotion

If you feel squishy add determination drop skitterbots and spider. Use molten shell instead of immortal call.

How do I generate power charge on bosses?
When we spend 200 mana we get a power charge so we keep spamming vortex and cyclone before the fight started.

Leveling: I leveled up with storm brand. You can find leveling gems and trees in the video.

Leveling Uniques:
- Axiom Perpetuum (2x)
- Tabula Rasa
- Call of the Brotherhood
- Karui Ward, Carnage Heart
- Praxis
- Seven-League Step
- Goldrim
- Replica Prismweave

Hi, first of all, thank you for your guide. I've always loved playing CoC-Icenova and I was unsure of its viability this league. Started EA and transitioned into this after some currency.

This is my current build:
https://pastebin.com/BN0SY8JE

I find it difficult to crit-cap, and I think as a result of it I can't kill stuff fast enough before they kill me (sometimes).

1) Could you advise on how I can upgrade to crit-cap?

2) What should be my subsequent upgrades?

Thank you!
I’m new to the game but really love to follow your build! many thanks for your hardwork bro!
How are you leeching ES?

Your POB has ES leech and your videos show it leeching as well, but you dont have Ghost Reaver, which sucks now anyway, and I dont see anything else allowing you to leech ES. So how is that happening?

Playing without leech is a bit rough.

If you look on the tree he allocated one node called energy shield leech and Soul thief

Also allocated Essence sap on amulet.

You cap your crit through the following:
20% Awakened cast on crit
45% inspiration
146% Increased critical strikes
40% per power Charge (Seriously Important to have your power charges up)
60% Cospris malice (Enemy condition chilled)
185% nodes from tree and cluster
131% from Diamond flask
88% Precision
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
This should leave you at overcapped crit chance of 7%
Heyo, this is an awesome build, and I'm having a ton of fun with the offense side of it, but the defense has me held back so far;
I went with your suggestion of swapping out Skitters/Spider for determination, and I'm running molten shell, but it seems like physical damage isn't the big issue; but spells
I'm getting one tapped by a lot of spells, in every league mechanic. I wasn't expecting this to be a HC build or anything of course, but I'd like to be able to do something like a Simulacrum without getting randomly one tapped

I was hoping you might have some insight, so I could live a bit more, it would be incredibly appreciated!

Just a couple notes; I'm still trying to get the right colors on the gloves, so there's a few weird things like precision in the helmet, and I'm casting Assassins Mark manually on bosses
What is the "cheap" version of this build? Like what are the essential items I need to pick up before this build becomes viable?
Can someone take a look at my character? For some reason i only have 200+ max mana, which i cant find the cause for this. Sorry i cant get the pob link right now but my profile is public
