    Mandatory Uniques



    Heatshiver is mandatory and the star of this build. This unique helmet is a very cheap and simple way to get over 100% more damage and trigger our Trinity support. Don't worry if you can't buy one right away. You'll be fine until you get yours.


    Yoke of Suffering

    Yoke of Suffering is mandatory because it causes all your damage to shock. This allows us to keep bosses with over 30% shock (take 30% more damage). This amulet also causes bosses to take 5% more damage for each ailment you have inflicted on them.

    You can start using Frost Blades right at the start, and the sky is the limit. (Pro tip: buy Sapphire Rings from Nessa in Act 1. At the end of Act 1, you face a hard boss that deals cold damage, and those rings will give you cold resistance.)


    Main Skills

    The first skill you get is Viper Strike. You can use it until you reach the first town.

    There, talk to Nessa and buy Frost Blades.

    As soon as you complete the Mercy mission quest, grab Momentum as your reward and support your Frost Blades with it.

    Reaching level 8, support Frost Blades with Added Cold Damage.

    Also, on level 8, create an Ancestral Protector setup. This totem will help a lot during boss fights.

    Another useful secondary skill to have is Frostbomb. Also, use it on bosses to cause them to take more cold damage.

    Reaching level 10 activates Clarity for more mana regeneration.

    On level 16, add Precision and Herald of Ice for more accuracy and damage.

    Reaching level 18, add Elemental Damage with Attacks to your setup.

    Also, on level 18, replace Added Cold Damage with Melee Physical Damage and add Faster Attacks to our totem setup.

    Reaching level 38, replace Momentum with Multistrike.

    At level 38, it's also a great time to turn your totem setup into a double totem setup.

    Remember always to summon both totems on boss fights.

    Also, on level 38, create a setup with Poacher's Mark and Mark on Hit.

    Don't forget to replace it with Assassin's Mark when you remove the Precise Technique node around level 68.

    If you get a 5 or 6L equipment, you can complete the Frost Blades setup.

    If you already have your Heatshiver, use this setup instead.

    Reaching level 69, replace Clarity with Determination for more survivability.

    Reaching level 69, you'll start using claws, and it's time for Nightblade support.

    Reaching level 70, replace your Precision with a level 1 Precision. Also, activate Hatred for more damage.
