[3.12] ShakCentral's Vortex For Dummies

Thanks, Using creeping frost instead of cold snap matter damage wise ? Cold snap feels kind of clunky so was experimenting with creeping frost sorry but i am on ps4 and using cold dot build for the first time.
CF shows about 15% more damage in my PoB compared to CS, but there is no Vaal CF. Vaal CS is a nice combination of dps and defense that would take an extra socket if you decide to go CF.

PS4 might be better with Creeping Frost, since Cold Snap requires pretty precise mouse placement for maximum effectiveness.

Tyvm i'll give it a shot CF personally feels smooth
Got an A8 deathless sirus kill last night. I think this may be my first time getting deathless on him period. Champion build I played in 3.9 could kill him quickly, but was a little glass cannon-y.
This is a shitty glass cannon build

How so? I've found this has given me a fair bit of flexibility, the fact i can drop a vortex and run. I do need to be careful with some fights that do high phys damage, and porcupines :D
Guys im diying a lot with 7.2k ES. (id: dlthunder).
There is 2 problems. One is that vortex cant leech ES (the DoT does not leech) and im diyng a lot becouse i get a hit and 0.5s after i get another one and die.
I have a other character with a different build that have only 5.5k life and die much less. Becouse while immortal call is up i can get full life again.

The second problem is... this other character have armor and evasion. Its not much, but it helps to mitigate damage. This vortex build have only the block (i have 30%). WIth my flasks up im immortal, but in boss maps i cant spam flasks becouse i would ran out of flask and have none to use for the rest of the fight.

Do i need to get more ES or more block? Or...something else?
I only face tank enimies to use vortex. As soon i use it i ran away.
-------------------------
EIDT (SOLVED):
I solved my problem. First i got a better chest. It gave me 1,5k ES. (now i have 8,7k ES. Im using steelskin instead of IC becouse while steelskin is up it give me time to start my ES regeneration. It gives me time to dash into a safe position and imediately start to recharge my ES. With IC i only mitigate the damage for a bit (since i dont have charges). With IC i need to go to a safe place while im getting hit, which reduces my chances of living, since i dont have leech to recover my ES fast. I also put tempest shield in the socket of increase duration (becouse why not some extra block). Im using steelskin 20 and CWDT 20. Its 10000x better. If someone is dying a lot with a decent ES already. This might help you.

It's a lousy glass cannon build because it doesn't have 20M+ dps, and it's not nearly fragile enough, so it fails on both. :-)

Looks like you don't have Glancing Blows, which makes a big difference. Vile Reinvigoration also gives you some extra recovery, although I think Brush with Death is better for burst recovery since it gives 1% ES on kill.

I added a (cheap) second BwD on a small cluster to my medium with BwD + VR and I could immediately see the difference.

A 20 SteelSkin is certainly an option. It takes a lot more strength though: two +30 nodes or two affixes worth. Everything is a trade-off. Sounds like it's working for you, which is all that matters.
