[3.8] WINTER ORB Elementalist Build. Highest DPS on budget! +VIDEO GUIDE!

Winter Orb is one of the most popular skills in Betrayal, with every 10th player actually using it!
Since the beginning of the league i've been observing things and looking for a better way to squeeze the most out of it.

V 1.4 Update (28/09/2019):
-3.8 PoB link updated. No visible tree or skill changes for now, just fresh!
-There are no sources of spell mana leech anymore, so you gotta use Laviagna's Spirit, Vaal Clarity or a simple Mana Flask now.
-added % cold damage leeched as life amulet as well as a new ring
V 1.3 Update (06/06/2019):
-3.7 PoB link updated. No visible tree or skill changes for now, just fresh!
-Warlord's Mark is useless for Spells now, so Bandits changed from 2 POINTS to Alira! Need to sustain that mana somehow!
-switched Warlord's Mark ring to generic 20% crit multi Elder ring.
-moved "Elemental Weakness" corruption to the gloves since we are loosing Warlord's Mark onthe ring. Need to make it somewhere else. Corruption such as this is VERY HARD TO hit on a "against chilled enemies" gloves, but is a nice stretch goal if you want to invest some time into damage.
Right now there are two options for rings:
a) Mark of the Shaper + high DPS Elder Ring (20% crit multi, opal, cold damage). This is the most damage you can get, but sadly no mana leech.
b) Berek's Grip + Frostbite on Hit Ring. This is slightly less dps than the first setup, but gives a curse to replace SUPER expensive gloves corruption.
At the same time it gives a chance to leech mana against weaker monsters and bosses, through the high freeze chance.
-As for the "nerf", it does indeed looks twice less effective now for clearing, but for single target it changes nothing. I will be checking WORB on standard as soon as patch hits.
UPDATE 1.2:
-Dropped Crit Strikes for Infused Channelling
-1200k Shaper DPS!
UPDATE 1.1:
-Dropped Added Lightning for Hypothermia
-Added Innvervate instead of Empower
-567k Shaper DPS

How does it work, in general?
You run around, periodically casting Winter Orb and staying alive.
Winter Orb casts homing projectiles everywhere, critting, shocking and shattering everything around.
Skill Effect Duration allows WORB stacks to last longer and thus you can run around without channeling for a while. Faster Casting makes WORB cast projectiles faster. Greater Multiple Projectiles (as well as other projectile modifiers such as Dying Sun) increase the amount of projectiles that WORB casts.
For bosses you will be using Decoy Totem for distraction.
======================================================================================
1) PROS
Скрытый текст


+fast mapper, crit heavy
+6000 HP with decent leech and some regen
+homing projectiles, you don't need to aim anything
+fantastic AOE
+insane for Incursions and Delves

======================================================================================
2) CONS
Скрытый текст


-Weak to Physical damage and heavy hits (any buffed bosses)
-Not the absolute fastest mapper if you want to stay alive too, but very strong nevertheless

3) Skill Tree Progression / Path of Building / Ascendancy / Bandits
For the levelling tree please watch the video guide or check PoB!

Path of building:
Up to 96.lvl: https://pastebin.com/Z2fZ6DQ8
For Ascendancy: Pendulum of Destruction, Mastermind of Discord, Shaper of Desolation, Beacon of Ruin
Bandits: Alira or Kill All

If you want to take Acrobatics: drop Snowforged/Crackling Speed/Blast Radius/Lightning Walker
======================================================================================
4) Early Levelling Gear / Skills
Скрытый текст


You will have to level with Arc/Exposive Trap and then switch to Storm Brand at level 12. At level 28 you can start using Winter Orb.
Nothing crazy here. Double Lifesprigs, Wanderlust, Lochtonial Caress, switch to Axioms when you will spec more into crit.



WORB 4L: WORB-Added Cold-Elemental Focus-Controlled Destruction
WORB 4L (later): WORB-Concentrated Effect-Greater.Multiple.Projectiles-Increased.Critical.Strikes

======================================================================================
5) My Actual Gear / End-Game Skills
Скрытый текст


For Uber Lab enchant: +2 Max Stages for Winter Orb.



You can also craft better DPS belt with "elemental" fossil.
Aspect of the Spider is another option to boost DPS, so use it if you can get it somewhere!
WORB 5L: WORB-Concentrated Effect-Greater.Multiple.Projectiles-Infused.Channelling-Hypothermia
WORB 6L: WORB-Concentrated Effect-Greater.Multiple.Projectiles-Infused.Channelling-Hypothermia-Controlled.Destruction
WORB 6L fast mapping: WORB-Concentrated Effect-Greater.Multiple.Projectiles-Increased.Duration-Hypothermia-Controlled.Destruction
WORB + Ice Spear CwC for heavy bossing damage: WORB-Controlled Destruction-Greater.Multiple.Projectiles-Hypothermia-Cast.While.Channelling-Ice.Spear
For extra toughness you can also use Vaal Grace somewhere.
is a great ring instead of Mark of the Shaper.
Cold Damage Leeched as Life is a valuable mod that you need to look for as well:

JEWELS: 2x crit multi + life, flat added cold spell damage + Life.


======================================================================================
6) Flasks
Скрытый текст



Dying Sun is great for extra res and DPS

as well as Basalt/Taste of Hate for defense.

Cinderswallow Urn is not a bad option, since we actually Chill and get the buff!


======================================================================================
7) Pantheon Gods
Скрытый текст


Major: Arakaali / Brine King
Minor: Ryslatha / Gruthkul

======================================================================================
8) Hardcore Viable or not?
Скрытый текст


Pretty damn sketchy. You need to know what you are doing, and keep away from reflect too. Heavy phys damage will obliterate you too (all end-game bosses, Izaro, etc).

======================================================================================
9) FOR THE RICH GUYS
Скрытый текст

MultiCrafted wands, 2x flat cold jewels. 2x crit jewels, +1-2 Inpulsa
GG Shaper Helmet

FAQ
1) WTF dude, where's skill effect duration nodes on the tree?
Скрытый текст

Too much investment for general purposes, but you can indeed spec into both duration nodes if you feel your damage is too low to kill stuff on low stacks or you aren't killing bosses fast enough. Also duration helps A LOT against Uber Elder, since you need to relocate a lot and dodge things, thus your stacks will drop low. I personally took both duration nodes for Uber Elder and it helped to maintain enough damage during the fight

thank you! ... just started with my Worber. Fun to play! Thanks for your work and your content!
I agree completely with not using the tree for duration. Interesting concept to use Increased Duration gem swap for faster mapping QoL.
1. "Faster Casting makes WORB cast projectiles faster" - projectiles frequency depend on stack numbers, not on faster casting. Faster casting gives us only faster reaching of max stack.

2. Checking "enemy is shocked" isn't good idea vs shaper i guess, but for high numbers in PoB it's "nice" tactic i guess :)

3. Switching Increase Crit into Slower Projectiles gives more dps, in PoB ofc.

4. Things like area efect is just amazing with WO. If you dont scale it, only 2-3 projectiles hit same target, area dmg from rest just wont reach it. But i get it... it gives no numbers :D

5. You said increase duration is not important. Watch your video guid and check how many times u got max stack of WO cause of low duration.

1) Faster Casting does not make you channel worb faster btw. I checked.
2) agreed, but still 20% more damage is there.
3) Slower Projectiles are terrible shit
4) area of effect is not needed for worb at all. You wreck everything with shattering and inpulsa explosions. Conc. effect is an absolute must to overstack and overlap area damage
5) you don't nee max stacks for mapping at all. The key is to maximize damage in general, so that you barely need more than 1-5 stacks to destroy everything on your way. You only need max stacks for bosses.

hi there!

can you run a full MF version of this build on t16 maps?

also a budget guide? like minimum budget to get this build going and the most important pieces you think?

have you tried the non-crit version? what is the advantage of crit vs non-crit for winterorb?

Yeah you can, easily. In fact i've planned this for MF originally but later decided to see just how many DPS i can get out of it.
Budget is mostly "no inpulsa" and maybe no warlord mark+shaper ring. Loreweave is great as a "budget" option. Wands are usually cheap. Boots and helms are nothing. Amulet is 1 ex max here.
If you want max damage you always go crit. Non crit is mostly ailment heavy or LL DOT builds like vortex occultist, when you don't need to "hit". If something hits fast, you'd better go crit for max damage.
