SHOWCASE
Cyclone
Cyclone can hit enemies lots of times per second, perfect to deal lots of critical strikes triggering Frostbolt and Ice Nova. It’s important that you keep less than 7,5 Attacks per Second on your Cyclone. This optimizes your Triggers/Second.
Frostbolt
Frostbolt will be socketed on Cospri's Malice to be automatically triggered when you deal a critical strike. It’s important to be Frostbolt because of its interaction with Ice Nova.
Dash
A great movement skill for evading heavy attacks.
Steelskin
Gives you a shield that absorbs Damage. Keep it in your Left-Click shortcut so you’ll activate it while walking.
Arcanist Brand
This Brand is for bosses, it will curse them with Assassin’s Mark for more Critical Chance and Multiplier. When you cast it, you’ll also trigger Arcane Surge for more Spell Damage. (Keep Arcane Surge level 6)
Vaal Righteous Fire
Grants more spell damage for a period of time, use it on bosses.

Grants more Life and Energy Shield regeneration per second
Hatred
Grants more Cold Damage

Adds Cold Damage and Increases Clear Speed

  • LEVELING ITEMS
-​ Elreon Jewelry are in my opinion the best items to level any build, imagine goes all the way until lvl 50 ~ 60 without needing to spend one single Mana point. But low level ones might be hard to acquire if you are not playing on Standard. If you are playing on the Challenge League check the next ring.
-​ Praxis are the mana rings you want if you couldn't get a nice Elreon Ring. It grants a lot of mana regeneration and -8 to total mana cost of skills. (equipable at level 22)
- Lochitonial Caress for gloves, mainly because of it's cast speed buff. (equipable at level 1) 
- Asenath's Mark is an offensive helmet, gives you even more cast speed. equipable at level 8)
- Goldrim is a defensive Helmet, gives you more elemental resistances (equipable at level 1)
- String of Servitude is another awesome and cheap way to get a lot of elemental resistances. (equipable at level 1).
- Wanderlust for movement speed and frozen immunity (equipable at level 3)
- Tabula Rasa is a great body armour for leveling, it provides a 6 Linked starting on level 1, not so cheap though. (equipable at level 1)
- Lifesprig is awesome to level cast speed characters, use two of them. (equipable at level 1)
- Axiom Perpetuum is totally awesome for leveling up this build, it grants elemental damage, cast speed and a LOT of critical chance. (equipable at level 10)
- Spine of the First Claimant provides up to 64% increased Cold damage each, use two. (equipable at level 20)
- The Dark Seer grants up to 82% increased damage.  (equipable at level 32)
- Frozen Trail provides 2 extra Frostbolt projectiles, it's pretty cheap and helps a lot your leveling process, I highly recommend you to equip one as soon as you unlock a jewel slot.
THIS BUILD'S FAQ
  • Is there a good place to buy unique items?
- Not only for unique items, poe.trade or pathofexile.com/trade are great websites for trading your items.
  • I'm lvl 40 and I'm dying a lot, what can I do?
- Please take a look at your Elemental Resistances, they are really important for your survivability. After lvl 40 try to keep at least 50% of each. The meximum is 75%, try to reach that when on end game.
  • I don't have as much HP as the gameplay shows and I've followed the Skill Tree step by step. Can you help me?
- Look for more HP at your rare gear. You can have ''+89 to maximum life'' on your helmet for instance.
