Cast While Channelling Winter Orb & Ice Spear Inquisitor Passive Skill Tree & Gem Links

Vvckd

Passive Tree

This is what the endgame passive skill tree looks like.

Main keystone notables we utilize are Chaos Inoculation and Zealot’s Oath. Besides that we pick all of the efficient Energy Shield nodes along with Critical modifiers and extra damage from nodes like Heart of Ice and Spiritual Aid. We also focus on picking Energy Shield leech, which is very strong stat in this build.

Gems

The Cast while Channelling Support Cast while Channelling Support gem setup is your signature gem setup, which should ideally be used in a 6-Link. For mobility, use Shield Charge Shield Charge. Discipline Discipline will improve your Energy Shield pool by a great amount. Zealotry Zealotry complements the build very well when it comes to offensive buffs.

For all the gem links we provide below, keep in mind that we list the gems in order of priority, meaning that if you lack the required number of sockets to fit all the gems, the first ones to drop are the ones at the bottom. Also note that in-game, as long as the sockets are linked, it makes no difference at all what order the gems are placed in.

Cast While Channelling (6-Link)

Cast while Channelling Support Cast while Channelling Support is used in combination with Winter Orb Winter Orb and Ice Spear Ice Spear in order to deal tons of Cold damage. We recommend one link that works great for both clearing and single target.

  1. Winter Orb Winter Orb
  2. Cast while Channelling Support Cast while Channelling Support
  3. Ice Spear Ice Spear
  4. Greater Multiple Projectiles Support Greater Multiple Projectiles Support
  5. Energy Leech Support Energy Leech Support
  6. Increased Critical Strikes Support Increased Critical Strikes Support

Shield Charge (3-Link)

Shield Charge Shield Charge is your main source of mobility. Hitting enemies with this skill will also give you a Fortify effect for better damage mitigation.

  1. Shield Charge Shield Charge
  2. Faster Attacks Support Faster Attacks Support
  3. Fortify Support Fortify Support

Steelskin (2-Link)

Steelskin Steelskin can be used for additional damage mitigation.

  1. Steelskin Steelskin
  2. Increased Duration Support Increased Duration Support

Other Gems

Flame Dash Flame Dash can be socketed for additional mobility. Depending on your Mana situation you can add in additional Mana reservation buffs like Discipline Discipline, Hatred Hatred or Zealotry Zealotry. For golems, you should use Summon Lightning Golem Summon Lightning Golem.

    Spiritual Aid allows Minion Damage to also affect us. Considering that Minion Damage nodes are more efficient than regular nodes we choose to go for Spiritual Aid.

    Hey, here is the final passive skill tree. When it comes to the Inpulsa's Broken Heart Inpulsa's Broken Heart you can definitely use it to boost up the clear speed. Shavronne's Wrappings Shavronne's Wrappings is mainly used in builds that go Low-Life, which is not the case with this character.

    Hmm? Why is that? Do the build authors not provide them or does the website not support it? If the site doesn’t support it, is that intentional or just a matter of not having someone to implement it?

    Hey, we have made a good effort of providing all the detailed information a player needs in the written build guides. PoB links are a delicate matter that would be time-consuming and for the time being we have decided not to work on it and focus on keeping all the content updated and answer any question the community has. If you have any questions I would be more than happy to answer.

    In 3.9 bosses have much higher Life pool in general. You can use any other skill you prefer but you will be killing them much slower than before. Piety A4 is another really tough encounter, so watch out!

    Ok thanks for the warning piety was a pain but after that I had CwC ready and Malachai was beaten deadless. This build now feels good.

    As little change, I use vortex for additional damage and whirling blade for movement.

    Hey, Eye of Chayula Eye of Chayula prevents you from getting permanently Stun-locked. Inpulsa's Broken Heart Inpulsa's Broken Heart can improve your clearspeed by a great deal, if you have no other way of Shocking you can use things like Summon Skitterbots Summon Skitterbots.

    Hey, MoM is great but keep in mind you cannot use it with CI. For the annointment I’d recommend something like Crystal Skin, what you’ve mentioned also works very well.
