This is my current POB:

I have around 30ex to improve on it. Any idea what I should work on? I'm looking for a better shield, but I'm unsure what to do afterwards. I would also like to get higher ES, as in game shows 8.5k. I would like it to be around 10k+ so that I can tank some of the bosses more (ie triple laser from Sirus A8)

Your POB also shows ball lightning having a average hit of 180k, mine is nowhere close to that. Any way I can improve and get close to that dmg?


1.You are using 2 curses but you have only 1 curse limit. Buy a level 5 awakened curse on hit gem or replace elemental weakness with arcane surge.

2. Bottled faith, 21/20 ball lightning gem, 5/20 awakened added lightning damage

3. You can use a Mark of the Shaper with a better roll (spell damage).

4. After all of this I would look for 52% CDR and craft a better sceptre.

Edit: You can also use cluster jewels at level 96, which will increase your DPS by 10%. They cost me around 8 ex. See the gear section for details.


1. Thanks, I'll try out awakened curse on hit. In POB if I add it in, it doesn't change my ball lightning's dps. Is that normal or is POB just bugged?

2. I'll prob have to hold off on bottled faith since it's 22ex right now.. I'll get 21/20 ball lightning. 5/20 added lightning I'm really close to.

3. I'll see if I can roll/buy a better one

4. That's gonna be a stretch goal I guess. I'm estimating 1 + 2 + cluster jewels will take around 30ex..
The mana issue might be because your character level is too low. You might as well take 1 reduced mana reservation node. If you want more mana regen, please refer to the Q&A.

@maciek2g
The reduced mana reservation enchant is good. I didn't recommend it to you because you said you wanted more damage. Other enchants offer more damage.

Another question, if I get a ring with elder + shaper, would that mean I get both of the stats from mark of the shaper?

Sorry im new to the game,can someone just post exact picture of where i should put timeless jewel ? Militant Faith

sorry again !
great build bro! this looks way better than any version of CoC ice nova that i've played before
got this shield today, working on a better sceptre now


One question, the Essence Rush cluster (40% inc damage and 5% AS while leeching ES, 0.3% Spell Damage leeched as ES) is good for us? I have this megalomaniac from another build, not sure if it is good for this build. Keep it or should I get another one?

Hi, I already contacted you about this assembly. Can you see my POB and make some changes? I don’t have much currency, but I could note something for myself for the future, note that I’ve taken not the best cluster Jewel that I can exchange in the future for a more useful one, and also taken thread of hope to slightly increase the speed attacks and spend free nodes on something useful, thanks in advance! my POB and a screenshot of the tree will be lower,since POB does not show adequate jewel thread of hope.
And also I do not have expensive gems awakening!

1. You don't have cooldown recovery speed, so your aps (attack per second) should be less than 6.06. In fact, your aps is too high even without Coordination notable. Thus, thread of hope is not a good choice now.

2. Your medium cluster jewels are not good. For example, you spent 3 passive points for 20% increased damage, 45% increased chance to crit, and +1% crit multi. This is not an efficient use of your passive points. I don't recommend using cluster jewels because scaling with normal passive tree is very good. If you really want to use them, go to the gear section of this guide to see what kind of jewels you should use.

3. You skipped all the increased area of effect nodes. In fact, these nodes are one of the most efficient nodes to increase your damage. Read the "Important Notes" section to understand this.

Because of the large amount of ES recovery on hit, you are almost always on full ES. Thus, this notable is not very good.

Yes, you are right.


Is this worth using to get started or should I keep rolling looking for attack speed and crit?
