My Gameplay Gear
Ice Golem Damage
|- Creates a clone of you that attacks with your weapon. Good for not taking all the damage.||- Ice Golem deals 40% increased damage.||- 10% increased movement speed if you haven’t been hit recently.|
- It saves you 6 passive skill points.
- It’s not expensive to get.
Full Build Attribute Requirements
|Strength 134||Dexterity 155||Intelligence 155|
|- Easy to acquire, you already have 104 from your Tree.||- Hard to acquire, look for Dex on your rare items.||- Super easy to acquire, just with your Passive Tree.|
- We’re not going for the Ice Golem’s cold projectiles, but for its melee physical damage.
- That’s why we’re supporting it with: Melee Physical Damage – Minion Damage – Ruthless –Multistrike – Empower.
- We’re also using Slave Drivers for this build, they have a potential for a huge single target damage.
- Remember to socket Raise Spectre on that Rare Helmet with Concentrated Effect and Minion Damage.
- You need to go to “The Control Blocks” in Act 5, cast Desecrate until you find the right corpses (Slave Driver).
- Then raise them as spectres.
- Winter Orb is a Skill that can be casted from a good distance to keep you safe.
- It’s ice damage, so since you are using Elemental Equilibrium it’ll reduce enemies’ Lightning Resistances in 50% (Slave Drivers use Lightning Spells).
- It’s linked with Cast While Channeling, Flash Offering and Desecrate.
- So it will automatically cast Flesh Offering and Desecrate for a Cast Speed bonus for your minions.
- Raise Zombie for having up to 10 Zombies with 45k + Life as Bodyguards.
- They also trigger Feeding Frenzy for more damage to all your minions and maim enemies on hit for more physical damage taken.
- Haste is an aura that grants attack, cast and movement speed to your minions.
- Vaal Haste is a temporary aura that grants a huge amount of attack, cast and movement speed to your minions. (Use it on Bosses)
- Flame Dash is a great movement skill.
- Convocation brings all your minions by your side. (It’s awesome for clear speed)
- Enhance grants more cooldown reduction to both this skills.
- Summon Skitterbots are awesome. They keep shocking and chilling your enemies for more damage and survivability.
