POE 3.8 Glacial Hammer + Ice Crash Inquisitor Budget Starter Build

By u4npoe - Views: (136) - Sep,09,2019

Build Summary

If you are looking for a non-meta build to kill some time before waiting for the next league, or maybe you just want to try out two-handed Glacial Hammer/Ice Crash, look no further because I've got you covered. I've played dual-wield Doryani's Catalyst Glacial Hammer with Berserker in the past, but have always wanting to play it as a "slugger", hit once hit hard playstyle.

Build Description

INTRO:
If you are looking for a non-meta build to kill some time before waiting for the next league, or maybe you just want to try out two-handed Glacial Hammer/Ice Crash, look no further because I've got you covered. I've played dual-wield Doryani's Catalyst Glacial Hammer with Berserker in the past, but have always wanting to play it as a "slugger", hit once hit hard playstyle.

I took this build to level 90, kill all the guardians, Shaper and Uber Elder. Then I started to play around with Ice Crash as I've never play with one before. To my surprise, it works just as well if not better than Glacial Hammer, and the only changes I made was swapping out two gems and respec two passives nodes. So I decided to include it in this build, you can choose which skill you prefer.


PROS & CONS:
+ Shattering pack to pack is fun
+ Super culling strike against any non-unique monster
+ Safe mapper because of freezing capability
+ Capable to do all endgame content
+ No gemswap
+ Flexible gear choices
+ Ice shatter is music to ears
+ You can tank Shaper's Slam
- Cannot do no regen or reflect map mod
- Not a beginner friendly
- Not cheap but not expensive either
- Freeze immune boss like is not fun to fight


ASCENDANCY:


1. Sanctuary
2. Augury of Penitence
3. Righteous Providence
4. Inevitable Judgement


BANDITS:
Save Alira for + 5 mana regen, +15 elemental resistance, +20% critical strike multiplier

Major God - Soul of Solaris
