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

Hey guys, here is another cast on crit build. I recently shared an occultist version of this build. Since I have the gear I wanted to make an assassin version too. Just for comparison. (Only changed the medium clusters) I really like the occultist one better. Assassin is just faster with elusive. I recommend you to play as occultist.

Occultist Version: https://youtu.be/xiW5--YiJQc


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:

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.

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

- Axiom Perpetuum (2x)
- Tabula Rasa
- Call of the Brotherhood
- Karui Ward, Carnage Heart

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?
