[3.12] The Perfect Ice Nova | Hierophant | 30m+ DPS | 11k EHP | All Content | 1100+ Delve

Fun and powerful build, thanks for sharing!

Im already lvl 94 and i done everything that i tried, only UE i haven't done, yet.

I wish i know how do you can cast so many more ice novas than me, i changed my entire jewel setup to be closer to yours and looks that yours is like the double of speed than mine.

im thinking to get farrul+tailwind to see if is worth.

But, thanks for this incredible build, cheers!
couple of questions

a) is it worth to start the build if I can only scrape together the very basic of the budget gear including only a 5L pledge?
b) how to level this build to begin with since pledge is 68? just do the same .... without pledge? like a 6L ice nova in tabula and a 4L frostbolt somewhere on gear? or entirely different?
c) how does it fare against the new content? beefed up metamorphs, the new guardians, new boss hp levels (considering the previously mentioned 5L pledge budget version of the build)

a) I would say yes, because the build is insanely fun to play and you can constantly make it stronger with single upgrades.
b) I leveled it with this pob, which was very smooth: https://pastebin.com/Sq2f2mFN
That being said if you are playing it not as a starter there are certainly better options (which I don't know anything about).
c) Budget build can already do every content without problems. With very good gear you can shred metamorphs and guardians literally in seconds. Drox dies in 3 seconds for me.

How much money do you have in the build if you don't mind me asking? Is it hard to play if you aren't very good at the game?
I think I did not get the mechanic behind so far, maybe someone can help me out.

1. Why no Frozen Trail? More Frostbolts means more Ice Novas or?

2. After i casted my FB salve, do I have to spam Ice Nova with the mouse cursor location on top of these moving FBs, or is it the same effect as i have the mouse cursor on my character and spam Ice Nova?

3. Am I right that there always should be distance between me and the mob? I have the impression if I stand in close range and then cast FB and then Ice Nova, the Fbs are already behind the mob when Ice Noca starts to trigger from FBs. Or am i doing sth wrong?

4. Why should it only always be ONE salve FB and then Nova Spam. Why not spam some FBs and and then Nova?

5. Why is Marylene Fallace to be considered as not really good? Out of all amus it gives me best POB dps? (dont have currency for pandemonius ;))

Would be great if someone can provide me with answers ;) Thank you

The ice nova only activates on 2 frost bolts at a time. So one salvo and you have max amount of ice nova going off. I see no reason not to send more than one salvo out though to chill stuff and do some damage. No frozen trail because you want the frost bolts to be moving slowly through the monsters while ice nova casts 6 times a second or whatever x2 bolts doing the massive dps.

1. 2 Frostbolts get Ice Novas, not more. So we already have "too many".

2. Does not matter where your cursor is. I play with frostbolt on right mouse button and ice nova on spacebar, think thats kind of ideal if you want to conserve your hand consititution.

3. Yes, every of your Ice Nova casts explodes 4 times from your frostbolts, so if you stand too close, the last shots will not hit the target.

4. Because of answer 1.

5. Your PoB seems busted. That amulet is -25% DPS for my PoB.

Of course you can. Awakener is all about waiting. Just phase him and go left so the circle doesnt follow you but the boss is attacking you. Wait 10 seconds and move under him. Repeat three times. Seriously, awakener can be done with literally every build.
