There are plenty of options for this build, in particular, and you should not feel like you absolutely need every recommended item. Quite notably, there are some very potent Corruptions/Double Corruptions that are not included, as they are simply not realistic acquisitions for most players.

For crafting Rare items, you can check out all the affixes that can roll on an item base, depending on its level, influence, and many other factors, using our affix tool.

Armor

Chest

Chaos Innoculation

We recommend a Vaal Regalia Vaal Regalia with at least 500 Energy Shield — the more the better. In the late game, you can invest in an Elder or Hunter influenced chest that has Critical Chance to Attacks, allowing you to drop heaps of critical itemization in favor of spell damage or defense. Awakener's Orb Awakener's Orb cross influence crafts are also worth seeking out; for example, the Crusader affix that causes enemies to explode for Physical damage is a potent addition. Affix hierarchy:

  1. [Uncapped] Elemental Resistances
  2. % Increased Energy Shield
  3. +# to Energy Shield
  4. Attacks have +% to Critical Strike Chance (Hunter or Elder)
  5. Enemies you Kill Explode, Dealing 3% of their Health as Physical Damage (Crusader)

Life

A Unique chest is the best option and there are several great possibilities, such as:

  • Loreweave Loreweave is one of our go-to Unique chests and the best choice for bossing and maximizing damage, offering a selection of everything we need. Ensure that the Loreweave you purchase or roll has an 78% Maximum Resistances roll, as this is the most important affix that the item offers. After that, prioritize Global Critical Strike Chance and Elemental Damage. The Attributes and Life rolls are nice bonuses as well, but there is no need to prioritize them.
  • Carcass Jack Carcass Jack is an exceptional choice and arguably the best choice for all-round play. Boasting superior clear to Loreweave Loreweave due to the area bonus, one can even consider using Concentrated Effect Support Concentrated Effect Support in the main link at all times with this chest equipped. If you want the most well-rounded item for an unbeatable price, Carcass Jack Carcass Jack is likely your best bet.
  • Tabula Rasa Tabula Rasa is an option for leveling and early mapping, but should be replaced by Carcass Jack Carcass Jack if you can get a 5-Link version (minimum).

Helmet

Recommended Labyrinth Enchant:

Chaos Innoculation

A Hubris Circlet Hubris Circlet with high Energy Shield and an additional Power Charge is ideal.

  1. [Uncapped] Elemental Resistance
  2. % Increased Energy Shield
  3. +# to Energy Shield
  4. +1 to Maximum Power Charges
  5. Nearby Enemies have -9% Cold Resistance

Life

The Enfeeble Enfeeble curse effect is not to be underrated. This can be a serious asset in helping you stay alive, especially if you can not yet afford top-tier gear. Despite what it might appear, the 40% Increase to Ice Nova Ice Nova is not as spectacular as it sounds, and while it is the best choice for bossing and the extreme end-game, you may feel squishy until you attain excellent gear. Enfeeble Enfeeble enchants are also much cheaper and the recommended choice when starting out.

As for helmets, there are a few great Unique options to consider:

  • Starkonja's Head Starkonja's Head is the best overall option, and cheaply obtained at any point in a league. The Dexterity roll is of particular importance, as many of our core gems and items have sizeable requirements. The rest of the stats are great, granting large quantities of Life, Critical Strike, and Evasion.
  • Devoto's Devotion Devoto's Devotion offers superior clear speed and a large injection of Dexterity. The defenses are not as attractive as Starkonja’s, however, and the Attack Speed can actually be a negative in some cases (see Cast on Critical Strike Mechanics Explained later in the guide). That said, this item is unbeatable from a pure clearing speed perspective, making it worthy of consideration if that is your only priority.

A nicely crafted Rare is also a very competitive option. Use Pristine Fossil Pristine Fossil and Frigid Fossil Frigid Fossil to craft an enchanted base yourself, and prioritize stats as follows:

  1. [Uncapped] Elemental Resistances
  2. +# to Maximum Life
  3. Nearby Enemies Have -9% to Cold Resistance (Frigid Fossil Frigid Fossil crafted)
  4. +# to Attribute(s), as needed (Dexterity and Strength, in particular)
  5. % Increased Armour / Evasion / Energy Shield (base dependent)
  6. +# to Armour / Evasion / Energy Shield (base dependent)

Gloves

Chaos Innoculation and Life

Rare Fingerless Silk Gloves Fingerless Silk Gloves are the best choice for most of the end-game. Prioritize stats as follows:

  1. [Uncapped] Elemental Resistances
  2. +# to Maximum Life
  3. # to Dexterity (+only if needed for gem requirements)
  4. # to Accuracy Rating (+only if needed for 97%+ Cyclone Cyclone hit chance)
  5. % Increased Cold Resistance / % Increased Damage Against Chilled Enemies (Incursion)
  6. % Increased Elemental Damage if You’ve Dealt a Critical Strike Recently (Crafted) / % Increased Global Critical Strike Chance
  7. % Increased Damage While Leeching (Crafted)
  8. % Increased Damage During Any Flask Effect (Crafted)
  9. % Increased Damage During Soul Gain Prevention (Crafted)

You can make a pretty incredible pair of multi-modded crafted gloves for this build, but it will cost several Exalted Orb Exalted Orbs for all the crafts. You will also need Dexterity on at least one Rare item, and gloves can be a convenient slot to have it.

Atziri's Acuity Atziri's Acuity (Life)

Atziri's Acuity Atziri's Acuity are the best Unique option, which improve your defenses and sustainability, as well as granting some additional Critical Strike. These are more of a luxury item and are very low priority, and should be one of the last upgrades sought after. We recommend waiting until you can afford a nicely Corrupted pair before purchasing a set of these. Some of the best options include:

  • Curse Enemies with Enfeeble on Hit
  • +1 to Socketed Gems
  • % Increased Maximum Life

Boots

Chaos Innoculation

A pair of Tailwind Sorcerer Boots Sorcerer Boots or Two-Toned Boots (Fire and Cold Resistances) Two-Toned Boots (Fire and Cold Resistances) are ideal. Prioritize Sorcerer Boots Sorcerer Boots if your Resistances are capped elsewhere.

  1. % Increased Movement Speed (30%+)
  2. [Uncapped] Elemental Resistances
  3. You have Tailwind if you have dealt a Critical Strike recently (Hunter)
  4. % Increased Energy Shield
  5. +# to Energy Shield

Life

Rare boots are the go-to choice for most. Prioritize affixes as follows:

  1. % Increased Movement Speed (25%+)
  2. [Uncapped] Elemental Resistances
  3. +# to Maximum Life

You will also need Dexterity on at least one Rare item, and boots can be a convenient slot to have it.

Bubonic Trail Bubonic Trail with 2 Abyssal sockets is an exceptionally strong item, and can be considered as very late-game luxury upgrade. You will need to socket at least one Abyssal Jewel into your Passive Tree to get the full bonus (1 of each: Searching Eye, Murderous Eye, and Hypnotic Eye), unless you are using a Stygian Vise in your belt slot. It is not worth using a Ghastly Eye Jewel for the Bubonic Trail damage bonus, as they have few useful damage affixes for non-summoner builds, and we do not use Tombfist Tombfist or Lightpoacher Lightpoacher to provide spare Abyssal sockets.

Weapons and Shields

Weapon 1 (All Variants)

Cospri's Malice Cospri's Malice is mandatory and the item that breathes life into the build. In addition to triggering Frostbolt Frostbolts, which in turn generate more casts of Ice Nova Ice Nova, Cospri’s adds a nice amount of Critical Strike chance and flat Cold damage to our attacks.

Shield (Chaos Innoculation)

A Titanium Spirit Shield Titanium Spirit Shield with Socketed Gems have 15% reduced Mana Reservation is ideal. This allows us to run additional Auras and is one of the most important pieces of the entire build. We recommend acquiring it as early as possible, even if the rest of the shield is lackluster at first.

  1. Socketed Gems have 15% reduced Mana Reservation
  2. [Uncapped] Elemental Resistances
  3. +1 to Level of all Cold Spell Skill Gems
  4. % Increased Energy Shield
  5. +# to Energy Shield

Weapon 2 (Life)

A second Cospri's Malice Cospri's Malice is often the best choice or as competitive as a crafted weapon, and also allows for easier acquisition of Attack Speed to reach the Cast On Critical Strike Support Cast On Critical Strike Support trigger threshold after cooldown recovery has been acquired. Your links in this Cospri's Malice Cospri's Malice should not match your main-hand. Drop Life Leech Support Life Leech Support for a new link that looks like this:

  1. Ice Nova Ice Nova
  2. Frostbolt Frostbolt
  3. Elemental Focus Support Elemental Focus Support

Shield Option (Life)

Light of Lunaris Light of Lunaris is an option for a shield that provides good damage and allows the use of Shield Charge Shield Charge.

Accessories

Amulet

Chaos Innoculation

A Rare Citrine Amulet Citrine Amulet is ideal, as we need additional Dexterity and Strength that isn’t on the tree.

  1. [Uncapped] Elemental Resistances
  2. % Increased Maximum Energy Shield
  3. +1 to Level of All Cold Skill Gems
  4. % to Global Critical Strike Multiplier
  5. Damage Penetrates % Cold Resistance
  6. % Increased Global Critical Strike Chance (if needed)
  7. % Cold Damage

Life

The Pandemonius The Pandemonius should be our go-to choice for amulet. Permanent Blind to enemies we hit, Cold Damage and Penetration, Cold Resistance, and a nice Dexterity implicit make this necklace an incredible pickup.

A Rare amulet can be used until The Pandemonius The Pandemonius can be afforded. Nothing fancy is necessary, as The Pandemonius The Pandemonius is fairly cheap, and will be an early pickup. The following stats should be enough to get you started in maps; any damage, such as Global Critical Strike Chance/Multiplier, is just icing on the cake.

  • Life
  • Resistances
  • Dexterity

Ring #1 (Unique)

Chaos Innoculation

Circle of Fear Circle of Fear is required for the full Chaos Innoculation gem setup. You will want one with these two affixes:

  • Herald of Ice has (15-20)% reduced Mana Reservation
  • (40-60)% increased Cold Damage while affected by Herald of Ice

Life

Mark of the Shaper Mark of the Shaper is an incredible choice for one of our rings. Your other ring must be an Elder item for this ring to be worth using, as the Spell Damage bonus is quite significant. The Volatile Anomalies that automatically spawn on kill can actually do fairly significant damage in certain situations; namely, bosses that spawn adds. The flat Lightning damage coupled with the Maximum Life and Energy Shield make this ring the complete package, and well worth the investment. Since your other ring has to be an Elder item out of necessity, you should purchase the other ring before upgrading to this piece.

Berek's Grip Berek's Grip can be used in in place of Mark of the Shaper Mark of the Shaper until you can afford it. This item is fantastic for leveling and the Mana leech is useful for sustaining Cyclone Cyclone until you have enough innate regeneration. It also offers superb damage for its very low requirement of Level 20.

Gifts from Above Gifts from Above can be used in place of Mark of the Shaper Mark of the Shaper until you can afford it. It is extremely cheap, can be used from Level 28, and has a handful of effective stats. The Global Critical Strike is very nice to have if you are leveling with Cast on Critical Strike, and the Consecrated Ground actually provides surprisingly potent defensive smoothing.

Ring #2 (Rare)

Chaos Innoculation

The Opal Ring Opal Ring is the best possible base, but if you need resistances you should use a resistance base instead.

  1. [Uncapped] Elemental Resistances
  2. +# to Maximum Energy Shield
  3. +# to Accuracy (as needed)
  4. % to the Global Critical Strike Multiplier
  5. % Increased Spell Damage
  6. % Chance to Freeze / Adds # to # Cold Damage Against Chilled or Frozen Enemies

There are plenty of great damage affixes to work in as you can afford influenced items not limited to this list.

Life

An Elder Rare ring is the best possible option, as it will enable us to use Mark of the Shaper Mark of the Shaper once it is acquired. If you cannot afford an Elder ring yet, or one with a nice set of rolls, simply use a normal Rare ring with a base of your choosing. Opal is the best base for damage, while Resistance rings can be useful for filling out your defense. Prioritize the stats in the same way:

  1. [Uncapped] Resistances
  2. +# to Maximum Life
  3. Dexterity (if needed)
  4. Global Critical Strike Multiplier (Elder Suffix)
  5. Increased Cold Damage
  6. Life Gained for Each Enemy Hit by your Attacks (Elder Prefix)
  7. Cold Damage Leeched as Life (Fossil Craft)

Belt

Chaos Innoculation

The Crystal Belt Crystal Belt is the go-to for any Chaos Innoculation build, including this one.

  1. +# to Maximum Energy Shield
  2. +# to Strength
  3. % Increased Damage with Hits against Chilled Enemies
  4. % Increased Cold Damage

Life

Our ideal belt is a Shaped Leather Belt that has the Increased Cooldown Recovery Speed affix. You will need a roll of 14% or higher, where we reach a Cast On Critical Strike Support Cast On Critical Strike Support breakpoint that allows your linked spells to trigger more than an extra time per second, resulting in noticeably higher damage. Additional Increased Cooldown Recovery Speed beyond 14%, however, results in little benefit as another consistent breakpoint cannot be attained. Prioritize the rest of the stats as follows:

  1. +# to Maximum Life
  2. [Uncapped] Resistances
  3. Increased Cold Damage (Delve Mod)
  4. Increased Damage
  5. Energy Shield

The Shaped upgrade can be made relatively late in the build, so do not worry about buying an expensive belt right away. A standard Stygian Vise Stygian Vise Rare with just Life and Resistances will serve you perfectly well for the majority of the end-game, and well past Uber Elder.

Jewels

Ideal Jewels can be very expensive, but are not at all necessary to reach extreme highs with this build. Do not be afraid or ashamed of compromising a little bit, or crafting your own with Life and another damage affix before purchasing upgrades down the road.

Frozen Trail Frozen Trail (Mandatory Jewel — Chaos Innoculation and Life)

Frozen Trail Frozen Trail is the only mandatory Jewel within the build. It should be placed in the socket just to the right of the Witch starting wheel. The intelligence mentioned in the tooltip does not need to be allocated, just within the radius of the Jewel, so as long as it is socketed in the correct position it will function properly.

Militant Faith Militant Faith (Chaos Innoculation)

Militant Faith Militant Faith (in the name of Dominus) is used to transform Pain Attunement into the powerful Inner Conviction keystone. From the POE Wiki:

Inner Conviction

It does not matter which seed of Militant Faith Militant Faith is used, so long as it is converted by High Templar Dominus in the tooltip.

For reference, it is placed as shown below:

Inner Conviction

Since Inner Conviction grants a powerful more multiplier, it is highly recommended you obtain this as soon as you have your other core items online.

Watcher's Eye Watcher's Eye Options (Chaos Innoculation and Life)

A Watcher's Eye Watcher's Eye with the Discipline mod Energy Shield gained for each Enemy Hit while affected by Discipline mod adds a noticeable defensive increase and is +highly recommended in the late-game. The ideal second affix on Watcher’s Eye would be +(30-50)% to Critical Strike Multiplier while affected by Precision, which is a massive damage boost.

Cluster Jewels (Chaos Innoculation)

You have some options for cluster jewels. In our Path of Building we included an example that uses a single Large Cluster and two Medium Clusters.

For Large Cluster Jewels, you’ll want to search for some with 12% increased cold damage as the small passives. It’s very valuable to have Dexterity on each of the small passives as well, as this build requires a high amount of Dexterity (210+). These notables are preferable:

  • Blanketed Snow
  • Prismatic Heart
  • Widespread Destruction
  • Disorienting Display
  • Vengeful Commander

For medium cluster jewels, there are many options. In our examples we chose to use those with small passives that had 10% Increased Effect of non-damaging Ailments and 10% increased Area Damage. Our notable picks:

  • Cold Conduction: To get reliably shocks on enemies
  • Astonishing Affliction: Improved Freeze and damage on targets
  • Vast Power: Very valuable; huge area of effect increase and damage boost
  • Magnifier: Area of effect increase and damage boost

There are many other powerful combinations to experiment with, but these are a good baseline to get you started.

Unique Jewel options (Life)

Tempered Mind Tempered Mind can be a big help with Accuracy. It should be placed next to the Instability Power Charge node above the Witch wheel if used.

Might of the Meek Might of the Meek can be placed below the Scion starting wheel to add additional Maximum Life from the Constitution wheel.

Unnatural Instinct Unnatural Instinct can be placed above and to the right of the Scion wheel to assist with Accuracy, although this requires some re-allocation of our Passive Skill Tree to drop the existing Accuracy nodes. This will also net you some spell damage and Life, but is a very expensive piece to implement. This is not necessarily an upgrade, either, but some players prefer this pathing.

Normal Jewels

Any damage increasing stats not listed here are also perfectly fine to fill out a Jewel, or for use when starting out.

  1. % Increased Maximum Energy Shield (Chaos Innoculation) / % Increased Maximum Life (Life)
  2. % to Critical Strike Multiplier with Cold Skills
  3. % Increased Critical Strike Multiplier for Elemental Skills
  4. % Increased Critical Strike Multiplier for Spells
  5. +# Increased Global Critical Strike Multiplier # % Increased Spell Damage While Holding a Shield (only with a Shield)
  6. % Increased Critical Strike Chance with Cold Skills
  7. % Increased Cold Damage
  8. % Increased Spell Damage
  9. % Increased Area Damage
  10. % Increased Damage

Abyssal Jewels

  1. +# to Maximum Energy Shield (Chaos Innoculation) / +# to Maximum Life (Life)
  2. Adds Cold Damage to Spells While Holding a Shield (only with a Shield)
  3. Adds Cold Damage to Spells
  4. % to Global Critical Strike Multiplier
  5. Adds Lightning Damage to Spells While Holding a Shield (only with a Shield)
  6. Adds Fire Damage to Spells While Holding a Shield (only with a Shield)
  7. Adds Lightning/Fire Damage to Spells
  8. Damage Penetrates 2% of Elemental Resistances if you Haven’t Killed Recently
  9. % to Global Critical Strike Chance

Flasks

Chaos Innoculation

Here is our recommended Flask setup, although you can change them out based on personal preference of Flasks or Prefixes/Suffixes.

Life

    I have been following this build and I’m still a little bit off from some of the more expensive items, however I do seem to run out of mana a lot. Any tips / something obvious that I’m missing?

    If you’re holding down Cyclone Cyclone, it can be a heavy tax on Mana — any time your “end point” or direction changes it will cost additional Mana. Try moving a “longer” distance when clearing through packs to help save on Mana. With bosses you generally want to make single clicks in a triangle or square pattern around the target. The more you practice with the skill, the easier it is to get a handle on. If you are really struggling you can also pick up some Mana Leech on the tree or from an item.

    Champ, thank you. Was the old hold it down vs single clicking.

    No worries, its an easy mistake to make if you haven’t played a lot of Cyclone Cyclone before (or at least without Blood Magic).

    You mention the watchers eye with the modifiers ‘while affected by Discipline / Clarity’ comes in handy. Is this intended for group play or am I missing an item that provides Discipline / Clarity

    Fantastic guide/build ive gotten all the items apart from a shaper ring setup, so im using the bereks grip, and also missing the pandemonius amulet.

    Im clearing maps T15 insanely fast but on single target bosses my damage is really bad? I went for the fortify on the 6L. apart from that do you have any other advice on what I could do to potentially kill bosses more effectively?

    Concentrated Effect Support Concentrated Effect Support will rip bosses to pieces, but The Pandemonius The Pandemonius will also be a noticeable increase due to the huge chunk of penetration, which is especially potent for bosses due to their naturally high Resistances.

    Even with Fortify Support Fortify Support, however, your damage should be plenty with the appropriate items. If you have a POB Link for your character I can take a quick look, but just make sure you’re doing all the basic stuff properly (flask uptimes, not running out of Mana with Cyclone Cyclone, etc.) as well, as this build does rely on solid fundamentals a lot!

    Pandemonius is like 20exalts on console at the moment > <

    Oh my, that’s quite the expense! I only play on PC, where it’s a relatively attainable mid-build upgrade — sorry to hear it’s so far out of reach. The Mark of the Shaper Mark of the Shaper is a nice injection of damage, and you’ll definitely feel an immediate power-up.

    First of thanks for a really fun build I really enjoy clearing whole screens with it.

    I swithced my dual strike claw assasin to this yesterday. I had just short of a million DPS on that char and had hit a wall in the delve. Switching defenitly amped up my dps and clearing time. So I can confirm that my dps is way over a million.

    With my prior build I was able to see my dps on my dual strike skill. But since this build is make use of chained skills and prox I find it quite difficult to track dps. This makes optimizing quite hard. Any tip for how I can keep track of my dps during optimization?

    I am currently trying to find, craft new Jewels but I can’t say if I should go for more cold damage, more crit mult/chance and since the jewels cost a few ex each I would like to keep track of the best payout.

    It’s quite difficult and annoying to calculate and you mostly have to do it all longhand. For example:

    Ice Nova Damage x Number of Frostbolts x Hits per Second x Critical Strike Chance

    You also have to account for Shock, Cospri’s, Cyclone, Culling Strike, and so on.

    In most cases your combined damage per second (Ice Nova, Frostbolt procs, etc.) is about half or two thirds of your actual DPS when accounting for ailments/items/effects.

    With the gear recommended in the guide (not counting any crazy mirror worthy items or things worth tens of exalts) you should be sitting between 5-9 million DPS without Vaal Righteous Fire active.

    Is this build going to be updated for 3.7 with the changes to Cyclone? Also, is Loreweave still the best option, even with 78% maximum resistances being the best roll?

    Yes, it will be updated — I’ll be investigating whether Cyclone Cyclone is still an ideal trigger skill. For 3.6 Loreweave Loreweave was still the best overall option since it also provides exceptional damage for a chest, but it will take me a day or two to get a solid draft of our 3.7 version prepared, so stay tuned!
