POE 3.8 Freeze Mine + Ice Spear Mine Ascendant League Starter Build

By u4npoe - Views: (98) - Sep,25,2019

Build Summary

This is my casual take on Icicle Mines not following any guides and just using the knowledge gathered in few leagues. Thus as a disclaimer, this guide would not be for everyone but more of an inspiration as to what could work. As 3.8 came out with new mines, Icicle mines seemed like a good AOE clear option due to the crit chance build up and in all honesty the sweet sweet sound of enemies shattering into million tiny pieces. As far as the build goes currently, it deals with any pack easily and effortlessly.

Build Description

INTRO:
This is my casual take on Icicle Mines not following any guides and just using the knowledge gathered in few leagues. Thus as a disclaimer, this guide would not be for everyone but more of an inspiration as to what could work. As 3.8 came out with new mines, Icicle mines seemed like a good AOE clear option due to the crit chance build up and in all honesty the sweet sweet sound of enemies shattering into million tiny pieces. As far as the build goes currently, it deals with any pack easily and effortlessly. Bosses can be dealt with just Icicle mines up to Red Maps but might be a bit more running about, that is why this build also utilizes a helmet craft for a 6L Ice Spear mines for melting tough bois.

Hope this will help whoever is interested in Ascendant Miner. I certainly felt going sabo felt too mainstream, have to be a hipster.


PROS & CONS:
+ Everything Shatters, Spiky bois ? Gone. That enemy that tried to one hit you ? Frozen and in million pieces.
+ Damage is reasonable but needs some min maxing to 1 button press endgame.
+ You laugh at blight branching
+ Alot of crit multi and chance from almost nothing.
+ SSF Friendly.
- Mines arent for everyone but with 3.8 changes work more smoothly.
- Defensively respectable HP but could do more. Blind helps alot but not for HC in no way.
- Lacks deeps with in blight maps with 6+ bosses.


ASCENDANCY:


1. Dex/Int and Passive torwards Saboteur
2. Saboteur and Dex Node torwards Pathfinder
3. Passive Point and Pathfinder
4. Either get attributes if you need but Passives outshine Attributes.


BANDITS: Kill All.


PANTHEON:
Major God - Soul of Solaris
Minor God - Soul of Shakari
