[3.11] Kami's CI CoC Ice Nova Tank 8-10k ES | 5m-10m dps | Delve 1k+ | 75/75 Block

This Build is pretty much like a big Tank with GG Gear, cause you got so much defensive layers and still can shred Bosses in juiced T16, delves to Depth 1k+ or kill awa. 8 Sirus safely.

If you want the build to see in action you can visit my twitch site where I stream from time to time:

I dont recommend in a normal league to start this build without a budget of 100ex+

If you want to min/max this build, you need like 300ex+

If you got a question pls ask in the Forum, I don't answer ingame questions or doing pob checks anymore, everything should be explained in the guide. Also you should follow the Guide and dont look at my Charakter I'm playing, because I'm testing always new stuff thats not proofed to be good. If you want you can do it, but at your own risk.


- added Video of T19 100% map

- added 2 new Videos of 100% Delirium map and a quick Baran kill

Path of Building link

https://pastebin.com/uqf99XAM (recommended Tree)
- Skill tree (and Gear example) for the normal Version
- should be makeable for every League


https://pastebin.com/niinX8yr (min/maxed with Explode)
- pretty much min/maxed offemsive wise in Harvest League with explode mod and 3L Herald of Ice for off-screenclearing mobs
- stun immune through 3 implict on Jewels + Flask enchant
- added manually additional curse on chest to calculate the second curse

I want to mention here a very big thx @AMMERON77, without his great Ideas it wouldn't be possible do to bring this build to the next stage. With the Idea of improving Herald of Ice so much that it literally clear the hole Screeen with one tap ontop off Item changes and Skill Tree changes.

Pros & Cons
+ good single target Dps
+ dodges attacks and spells via Cyclone
+ pretty good clearspeed while mapping
+ immune to crits through Elusive buff
+ 75/75 Blockchance
+ ~10k ES
+ 800 ES regen
+ ES leech
+ 30 ES on hit
+ 5% ES on Block
+ 5% ES on kill

- expensive if you want Endgame Gear
- slow start of ES recovery and recovery rate
- between Bossphases with no mobs you only got ES recovery, ES regen and vaal Discipline
- (cannot do Elemental reflect maps)

My Endgame Gear in Harvest

How the Build works & aps and Cdr !Important!
1) you hit an enemie with Cyclone -> try getting 100% Hit Chance

2)on that hit you try to get a critikal strike -> try to get 100% critical strike chance for Cyclone

3)the hit with cyclone crits and your CoC gem aktivates so you cast automatically Ice Nova thats linked to it, and also the Ice Nova and Frostbolt in your Cospri



Cooldown reduction is a very important stat in our build, cause there are Breakpoints we can hit to cast more often Ice Nova with Cast on Critical through Cyclone.

BP0 At 0-13% CDR you need to stay below <6.06 APS

BP1 At 14-51% CDR you need to stay below <7.57 APS

BP2 At 52%-57% CDR you need to stay below <10.1 APS

In the End we need to get the BP1 Breakpoint, so wee need atleas 14% CDR

you can get the stats on Boots, Belt or the awakening gem @lvl.3

If you have higher aps with your cyclone then the BP you got, you start missing casts from Ice Nova and loose a bunch of dps

for the aps calculation in PoB Fork:

1) import build
2) go to cyclone as your main skill
3) activate all flasks
4) activate Mistwalker, Tailwind, Onslaught, Frenzy Charges only if you got it from Gear, Gems or somewhere else

I prefer Soul of Lunaris for the avoid and dodge, and Soul of Ralakesh for not to get maimed or blinded

Take Alira for crit multiplier and all resistance

1 Unstable Infusion
2 Deadly Infusion
3 Mistwalker
4 Opportunistic

Stun Immunity

Since 3.11 Cyclone doesn't grant us anymore Stun Immunity while channeling, so we need to grab somewhere the "% Chance to avoid being stunned" mod from Gear, Tree or Cluster Jewels. We need to get 100% Stun Immunity, otherwise it will feel clunky.

Options where you can get it:
- 80% Boots enchant (if you've killed recently)
- 20% form passive Tree (arcane swiftness)
- 35% as prefix crafted on the Chest
- 40% from Channeling Cluster Jewel (unwavering focus)
- 50% from Flask Affix
- 25% as suffix crafted on the gloves or helmet
- 10% Jewel implict (Harvest craft)
- 50% Cinderswallow enchant

Gem setup

6-Link CoC setup

- swap in awakened added cold instead of inc. crtitical strike for a big dps boost, but only if you can keep your flasks up during fight for 100% Crit chance
4-Link Aura setup

3-Link Movement and Vaal RF for dps

use Vaal RF on Bosses for more dps, dont use the normal RF

4-Link cwdt setup

3-Link Cospri setup

4-Link Vortex setup

usefull site & programms

you should always look on poedb, to see there ilvl base and influence you need to craft a specific mod

Path of Building

Path of Building Fork

I league started with this build as a Life version untill lvl 95. For leveling I used Freezing Pulse untill I got my second Labyrinth done for the Deadly Infusion Ascendancy Note. After this I switched to a 5-Ling Coc setup with Daggers. Feels a bit clunky at first, because we got low attack speed and crit chance, but when you get higher gems, passive points and better Gear its starts doing his Job pretty good.

https://pastebin.com/kLH52HkA (passive point steps included)

Things to buy first:
1)Cospri's Malice
2)Cooldown recovery on belt
4)Mark of the Shaper/ Circle of Fear
5)Watcher's Eye

I prefered mostly Life over dps, and still did Sirus on awakened lvl 8.

comming soon, but atm I try to make the Theory at first, it doesn't look much different from a typical life based version, the "only" difference is that if you should lose in some way ES, you get it "instant" back from the defensive mechanic if there are mobs.
Would love to see some videos and some detailed gear guide so I know what to aim for until I can get your insane gear, thanks for the guide!
u have 35% cooldown recovery (20belt - 15boots)
yet ur pob has 8.77 aps

or do u have more cooldown recovery from somewhere else??

You take it, because if you socket the Timeless Jewel next to the socket, it converts the MoM Keystone. The new effect of the keystone is that it double your block Chance, but you take half of the hitdamage.

I will that later on explain in the guide when I got more time
Gear section is updated, will explain it the next days a bit more
