Have you guys thought of Arctic Armour and Incinerate?

Both skill work best if you stand still!
Arctic Armour - no mana usage if stand still.
Incinerate - huge increase in damage of stand still.

This could really work. Also Arctic Armour would help with reflect (fire) and it has fire damage reduction.

I am really curious about scaling. With max fire resist, the -fire damage taken could be really good.


Looks like a good idea.

For players who think this is a oh-shit skill, imo it is not, I would rely on flasks than this.

Scenario:
1. oh shit, I am taking lots of small damage. (0.3 seconds)
2. cast arctic armor (0.5 seconds-1 second)
3. run

whereas I can skip the step 2
1. oh shit, I am taking lots of small damage. (0.3 seconds)
2. run, press flasks crazily



1st scenario works better versus voids and titty bitches since you can literally take 0 damage from them with this skill.

You forgot to mention Whirling Blades?

1. Oh shit, I am taking lots of.... whirling blades, solved (unless you lag like me, then its just a skill to let you die further away from the mobs).

At first i was like holy cow, that might be nice, also great "buff" for melee. So i checked it out on my blood magic character; lol nvm cant use it. Checked it on my CI dagger shadow; lol nvm 0 mana. GG, this is might be useful if you have 3k mana and dont use auras ":D"
My best char so far https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/1211377
Wonderful skill. Love it with my Cyclone duelist. Might grab Eldritch Battery just for this skill.
This might be a perfect skill and addition to my build, can't wait to try this out!

(High mana regen, with mobile/ immobile play mixed).

Nothing, the degen is a debuff not a buff.

That's not how IF works. The degeneration on Blood Rage and Righteous Fire are also increased by Inner Force; the degen is part of the Buff. Either Arctic Armor does not count as a Buff, or the Mana Degen is increased by IF. Can't have it both ways, and the latter is more likely.

all abilities that move your character except for lightning warp seem to count towards the movement degen.
Flicker Strike?

This could be a nice buff for a multi flicker gem build. A way to slow enemies you don't kill right away and defense for quick melee attacks/fire spells.
Someone please do correct me if I'm wrong. Didn't they say they don't want face tanking? Was that just a rumor someone spread? This is basically a face tanking gem.

it depends how it scales at high level
As an eldritch battery bow user: This is the best panic button I could have ever asked for. I have 180 mana regen/s without optimal gear, if I ever get ahold of a dream fragments... It will be insane!

One question: Does the chill effect count as dealing ice damage when accounting for Elemental Equalibrium?
