[3.19] CoC Ice Nova Build | Assassin | Lake of Kalandra | Path of Exile 3.19
Hey guys, cast on crit ice nova assassin build is here. I was gonna play as trickster but I felt like trickster is not really good for coc builds. So i decided take an ascendancy from trickster and go for assassin. I got Soul Drinker with Forbidden Flame/Flesh jewels. Overleech feels really good and allows me to use energy leech support gem.

Really want to play this but kinda expensive :D
So attempting to run this build, and running into issues trying to understand the numbers you have in the POB. You have your evade chance at 93% with an evasion rating below what I have. How is that possible?

NM its from the Vaal Grace you have running.

Thanks for your build, I switched to this in std from my old CI Cospri and it feels GREAT!
I understand that awakened CoC gem solve the cooldown recovery problem with the 6L Ice nova. Aren't we losing dps without the CDR on belt/boot for the cospri?
Btw how do you calculate the dps of your build?

How did you make the thread of hope range bigger?
Divine or just buy one bigger

Hi, I'm doing this build and was wondering what the defenses are. I'm not sure if I'm playing wrong or doing something wrong but I feel like I'm getting 1 shot quite often.
