POE 3.10 Ice Nova Inquisitor Build - Cold Faith League Starter Budget

By u4npoe - Views: (4274) - Mar,09,2020

Build Summary

Hello, This build with the additional repeat of Pledge of Hands your Ice Nova will cover more area per cast, but if you use Taryn's Shiver you can potentially drop Frostbolt altogether while mapping and since your damage will not scale anymore with subsequent repeats you will be less dependant on correct positioning to reach max dps. For the start of 3.10, I've decided to use something with the Ice Nova + Frostbolt combo because I had fun with it in Delirium. Since I basically skipped 3.9 I searched some guides to find out how the Ice Nova meta evolved and Hierophant seemed the to-go ascendancy for it, so I started as a Templar, following Arcinde's Hierophant Guide.

Hello, This build with the additional repeat of Pledge of Hands your Ice Nova will cover more area per cast, but if you use Taryn's Shiver you can potentially drop Frostbolt altogether while mapping and since your damage will not scale anymore with subsequent repeats you will be less dependant on correct positioning to reach max dps. For the start of 3.10, I've decided to use something with the Ice Nova + Frostbolt combo because I had fun with it in Delirium. Since I basically skipped 3.9 I searched some guides to find out how the Ice Nova meta evolved and Hierophant seemed the to-go ascendancy for it, so I started as a Templar, following Arcinde's Hierophant Guide.

I fiddled with the build a lot trying to min/max it as much as possible, but I think that now it's finished, so here's a guide for it. In the gear section, I'll list budget alternatives to use in the slots while you are piling up the cash for the bis. I hope that you'll find this guide helpful.

 

PROS & CONS:

+ Can achieve stupid levels of DPS

+ Can be started with basically just an Enduring Mana Flask

+ Scale extremely well with currency

+ Can do any map mod (for reflect you'll need Sybil's Lament + Yugul)

+ The 3.9 buff to mobs' resistances doesn't affect us

+ 4.7k life, 3.5K es, 1.7k mana unreserved

+ Good layers of defense with MoM, block, Steelskin and Elusive

± After a certain point you'll need a load of money to improve the build

- Mapping speed not on par with the zoom zoom builds

- You need to press 2 buttons

 

ASCENDANCY:

Sanctuary -> Pious Path -> Righteous Providence -> Inevitable Judgement

 

BANDITS:

Help Eramir for +2 Passive Skill Points

 

PANTHEON:

Major God - Soul of Lunaris or Soul of Arakaali 

Minor God - Soul of Garukhan or Soul of Ralakesh
