This is a shitty glass cannon build


This is my favorite comment ever. Thousands of people have used it to kill Sirus for the first time, but I guess it's time to pack it up bois.

Usually play arc or volatile dead so the change of play style is taking some getting used to, seems more of a melee style.

I see you and many similar builds use Hypothermia and Elemental Focus. Benefits of Hypothermia seem to focus on chilled enemies but Elemental Focus cannot inflict elemental aliments so how do they complement each other?

As I understand it, Elemental Focus prevents you from chilling enemies with the initial hit from Vortex or Cold Snap, but does not interfere with the chilled ground chilling enemies which walk on it.
Hypothermia gives supported skills 39% more cold damage over time, which is huge and does not depend on the enemy being chilled.

This is pretty much correct.

There are two components to Vortex and Cold Snap damage - the hit, and the ground effect that is left behind. The ground effect is not limited by the Ele Focus gem, so the ground effect can chill

Does anyone have a process for crafting a wand w/ Cold Multi and either high cold damage or spell damage? I'm playing on Hardcore Harvest Trade and the trade options are slim pickings right now.
First time I´m playing Vortex and so far I love it.
The playstyle really suits me and I wanted to say thank you for the great build guide (even if I´m still in the leveling process).

One Question though: I´m playing the game on PS4 and only have a MacBook as Computer. So I can´t use PoB :(
If found a PoB-Online Tool (PoE Buddy), but the tree ist not updated to 3.11.
Would it be possible to post Screenshots of the lvl-tree and the lvl 80 tree?
That would be amazing.

Heya Morb,

Not sure if the below is helpful? Otherwise, just look at peoples profiles and check out their skilltrees, also try POE Ninja, can look for Vortex in the skills and see their skilltree's

Awesome - thank you :)
So this league I played Trickster as I wanted to test Wintertide brand like all of us Vortex lovers.

My findings this league:

* with a small cluster jewel with "Elegant Form" and "Arcane swiftness" on tree you can craft "25% chance to avoid elemental ailments" on both gloves and helm, for a total of 100% and it rocks. Note that it doesn't protect you from ground effects, but apart delve burning ground (where abberath mini god works) it's no issue. All in all, it's pretty op and totally worth it.

* You can use Frostbolt in a cyclone setup: cyclone + cwc + gmp + frostbolt in fortify boots. Greater volley and even Frozen Trail work perfectly too. With this setup you still never stop. And the clear is just amazing! You never have to do "two passes", slalom for trailing mobs or simply walk back. During delve encounters, the full screen is literally covered in vortexes (as well as the entry points to the delve zone). For Sirus and Shaper (the no-flask allowed bosses) I replace gmp and frostolt with frostbite and culling strike. Please remember that you need a scepter for all this to work, not a wand. But perma fortify is too strong to just pass by.

* You can travel near glancing blows and take the Sanctuary wheel instead of using a thread of hope. It's pretty strong too.
