[3.15] Self-Cast Eye of Winter Occultist - Get that Diablo 2 Nostalgia!

Hi,

I've done a first PoB for my league starter: Eye Of Winter Occultist.

Mechanics I Use:
- Offensively, we are going to primarily be stacking Power Charges (dual void battery, power charges nodes on the tree...) and crit multiplier.
- Defensively we're going for evasion and dodge chance. (Acro, Phase Acro, Wind Dancer, Kintsugi...)


POB: https://pastebin.com/pALA09VZ (This is a first draft, this will be updated during the league).


Gem Links:

- Eye of Winter ; Unleash ; Hypothermia ; Added Cold Damage ; Power Charge on Critical Strike ; Inspiration (Note: It might be better to swap out Hypothermia for another Eye of Winter and play with a dual EoW + 4 support gems as the Unleash stacks are on a different cooldown if you use 2 skills.)

- Herald of Ice ; Zealotry ; Enlighten

- Flame Dash ; Arcane Surge ; Summon Chaos Golem ; Frost Bomb

- Vaal Cold Snap ; Unbound Ailments ; Bonechill

- Immortal Call ; CWDT ; Increased Duration ; Phase Run or Vaal Grace

- Hydrosphere ; Hextouch ; Frostbite ; Temporal Chains (or Elemental Weakness if you want more damage) (Note: You can take out one curse once you get a curse on hit ring and put either Vaal Grace or Phase Run in this setup.)


Gear:

- Weapons: Dual Void Battery
- Helmet: Rare helmet (later with +1 Power Charges)
- Body Armour: Kintsugi
- Gloves: Rare Gloves
- Boots: Rare boots (later with Tailwind or Elusive)
- Amulet: Pandemonius
- Ring 1: Rare ring (later with Curse on Hit)
- Ring 2: Snakepit
- Belt: Rare stygian vise

- Flasks: Diamond Flask, Life Flask, Mana Flask, Quartz Flask, Wise Oak

- Jewels: 2 Large Cluster Jewels and 2 Medium Cluster Jewels, 1 Militant Faith with Dominus Mod for Inner Conviction, and some generic %Life, crit multi jewels




If you guys have any ideas of how I could improve it: tree, items, gems, jewels...?

It looks good to me but there is sooo much I don't know/forget about the game, so if anyone got an idea to share it would be very helpful!

Thank you! :)

No profane bloom? Basically explody chest built into your witch?
Also could you provide leveling route and gems/links you will be using for it.

You could also get frostbite on a ring to provide a little bit smoother gameplay. I dont think you are min-maxing this in the guide yet though obviously ha. Curious on what top tier would look like gear wise.

Thanks!

I will probably use Profane Bloom until I can get enough items to scale the power charges well enough.

For leveling I'll probably just follow this tree and skip the cluster jewels until I have decent ones with at least 2 passives.

For leveling skill gem you can use freezing pulse until you get Eye of Winter in act 3.

Do you think frost wall will be useful on bosses with this skill?

Also. What should we do before we start to obtain cluster jewels?

Seems quite expensive for a starter. I really want to try Eye of Winter tho, and so far i think this is the best build attempt that i've found, so interested to see updates.
Looks interesting. I'm trying not to take a safe storm brand route this league, might have a go here.
I'll try this build. Thanks!

Just use the passive points to get other nodes (life, or crit chance/crit multi for spells until you can get your hands on at least one large and one medium i'd say.

Regarding Frost Wall it could be usefull but requires testing.

Yes the build is not really "starter friendly" if you don't know what you're doing. I'd recommend taking Profane Bloom and Elemental Overload until you get your hands on at least one void battery. (This means some points in the passive skill tree will need to be re-allocated until you get some core items).
