[3.12] Wallach's Hierophant Freezing Pulse Totems (Soul Mantle Hotfixed)

I've been using this build since I came back to PoE in metamorph, and I absolutely love it.

I've started playing around with using Vixen's Entrapment slotted with Projectile Weakness - Frost Bomb - Spell Cascade - Increased area of effect while having my boots slotted with Frostbite - Arcane Surge - Spell Cascade - Faster Casting.

Basically, I cast Frostbite and get both Frostbite and Projectile Weakness cursing the targets. Extra damage from both curses and ES leech.

Thoughts on this over a Rare gloves slot?

Hey Guys I noticed in PoB that if we change Add Cold damage for Elemental focus we have a huge DPS bonus

any reason why do with add cold damage?

thanks


If you use ele focus you can't inflict ailments, so you can't chill and freeze monsters anymore.
Any way to get this build tankier ? where would we start with that ?
im lvl 93, doing t14-16 and dying from nearly everthing that looks at me (4,1k life, 700 es, 2,6k mana)

I ran the build endgame last season at 3800k life 1000ES and died to one shots sometimes but never in maps only on bossing. Do you have Mind Over Matter and 60/40 health/mana? Do you have steelskin CWDT on the right level for it to proc like cold snap? If you do, then you positioning must be the problem... stay far away cast curses (spell cascade help you stay far).
Yeah I haven't looked in to cluster jewel trees as I don't have the ex to fund it but yeah I ran it last league too and it seems to me with the tree i'd always be around 4-5k life, 5k life being the high end.

Then with like, all the new stuff that is being thrown at us and everything spawning I really don't think this build is meant to be defensive. We kinda are defensive with our positioning and mechanics, really. I'm 92 and all my deaths have been from bad positioning or impatience. Like from my prespective of last league to playing it this league again the only thing I can think of to help me life more is to just push my DPS higher so I don't have to deal with the mob longer than I have to.

Damage is the defenses I think idk. Being able to place totems and dodge/back up ect is the biggest strength.
chill , freeze mainly (for small dps loss) also with ele focus cant ignite or shock. (oops already answered).
tankiness good life mana ratio with mom. positioning helps alot. can go with a 2nd curse its right next to our tree. whats killing you one shots phys dmg ele dmg etc?
if phys dmg is your issue get a phys % as ele dmg taken to lessen it.
proper usage of a cwdt , steelskin, arcane cloak, or immortal call helps alot.
is all of your gear 20% Q. all of your gems 20% q? flasks 20Q ? is there a big upgrade u can get for a smattering of chaos on auction house? how's your main 5- 6link? Quality and better leveled gems more dps = stuff dies faster negating need for livving long. You can also add a vaal grace/ increased duration. list goes on mate ;)

1st off let me say big thumbs up for the hitchhiker
guide to the galaxy reference one of my favorite books!
ok from looking at your pob. here's where I'd start:
get 21 gem freezing pulse 20 q soon as possible or at least 20/23.
your items can have more life helm best if es or hybrid es.
amulet can easily be upgraded for much better.
don't forget you can catalyze your items.
you can get corrupted kikazaru (+all res, immune ignite,bleed,poison)
add mana craft or try to get all items with life/ mana for better mom.
karui flask is cheap works well
shield can be significantly upgraded.
you can use medium thread of hope. to get sanctuum of thought , arcane focus and
divine judgement. saving about 7 sp then spedning 3 to get what u had and divine judgement.
if still having trouble allocate the 4 extra sp to getting 2nd curse(whisper of doom 4 sp away) or life, block tankiness etc.

I bought a 6S chest and spent all my currency buying Fusing Orbs. Luckily, it took maybe 100 fuses.
