Build overview



Boss DPS:



With Slayer's Masterful Form passive your Maximum Endurance Charges are equal to your Maximum Frenzy Charges. With Badge of the Brotherhood Amulet, your Maximum Frenzy Charges are equal to your Maximum Power Charges. By stacking only Maximum Power Charges you're granted all the other Maximum Charges too. To do so, equip Void Battery, Malachai's Loop, a Rare or Corrupted Unique Helmet, and a pair of good Rings - you can reach up to 12 Maximum Charges this way. To have all of these Charges up at all times you shall wear Ralakesh's Impatience Boots. This results in a lot of Elemental Resistances and Physical Damage Reduction with Endurance Charges, Attack Speed, Cast Speed, and Damage with Frenzy Charges, and Critical Strike Chance with Power Charges. You can also equip Arn's Anguish Belt and generate Brutal Charges with Enduring Cry for up to a 36% chance of dealing triple damage. Almost any Skill will benefit from these stats, but we recommend an Elemental Spell to reap the benefits of the aforementioned items, Inner Conviction Keystone, and Willclash Helmet. Winter Orbs seems like a good candidate. Its Projectiles can shotgun a single enemy if you have enough Area of Effect, which can be conveniently scaled up with Power Charges and Vast Power notables from Medium Cluster Jewels. Winter Orb must be channelled to start dealing damage, but with the high Cast Speed from Frenzy Charges, it's not a big issue. This Spell's Projectile firing frequency also scales well with Cast Speed.

Slayers rarely use Spells as their passives and the skill tree starting location are tailored to suit an Attack playstyle more, but he does have Bane of Legends, Headsman, and Brutal Fervour which will work with Spells. These grant more movement speed and damage, execute enemies below 20% of their Maximum Life on hit, increase Maximum Recovery per Life Leech with Overleech, and reduce damage taken. You will rely on this Life Leech heavily - Elemental Damage Leeched as Life is obtained from the Doryani's Lesson notable on a Large Cluster Jewel. On top of Leech, the character's durability is derived from Endurance Charges, a lot of Life Regeneration from Replica Restless Ward, capped Spell Block Chance with Tempest Shield and Willclash, and Fortify. With Purity of Elements, you're immune to all Elemental Ailments. The build has a relatively low Maximum Life, up to around 4000, so it is still vulnerable to singular big blows.

1. Gameplay

Charge up the Winter Orb from time to time, it automatically seeks enemies to kill. Occasionally you can also turn on Zealotry linked with Divine Blessing, cast Frostbite Curse, or activate Righteous Fire to gain more damage. To move around use Shield Dash. Sniper's Mark, Enduring Cry, and Steelskin are triggered automatically. Your Mana-reserving Skills are Hatred, Tempest Shield, Purity of Elements, and Herald of Ice.

2. Build's PROS & CONS

  • very high DPS and movement speed
  • automatically aims at enemies
  • vulnerable to big hits
  • Rings can be expensive


3. Leveling tips

Use this guide: Duelist Leveling Guide with Melee/Impale. The build has a peculiar Passive Skill Tree that doesn't do much at the early stages of the game. You should swap to this final version of a build after you're able to equip all the required unique items, around level 80 to 90.


Killing all Bandits for two additional Passive Points is the best option

4. Final Skill Tree, Ascendancy Points, and Pantheon

Final Skill Tree:
96 Points Final Skill Tree - (doesn't include Unique or Cluster Jewels)
123 Points Path of Building (PoB) link

Ascendancy points:

Preferably in that order:

  1. Bane of Legends
  2. Brutal Fervour
  3. Headsman
  4. Masterful Form


Major God: Soul of Lunaris: 1% increased Movement Speed for each nearby Enemy, up to 8%; 1% additional Physical Damage Reduction for each nearby Enemy, up to 8%

Minor God: Soul of Ryslatha: Life Flasks gain 3 Charges every 3 seconds if you haven't used a Life Flask Recently; 60% increased Life Recovery from Flasks used when on Low Life


5. Final Gems links

[DPS] Winter Orb setup
Winter Orb Winter Orb - Any spell will work. Winter Orb is good because you can quickly charge it up, it scales with AoE and Cast Speed, and you don't have to stop to deal damage.
Greater Multiple Projectiles Greater Multiple Projectiles Support - Winter Obr fires more projectiles resulting in more damage.
Power Charge on Critical Power Charge on Critical Support - More Damage per Power Charge.
Ice Bite Ice Bite Support - Adds Cold Damage per Frenzy Charge, which you have a lot of.
Infused Channelling Infused Channelling Support - More Damage with Winter Orb with Infusion. While Channelling, you will take less damage.
Cold Penetration Cold Penetration Support - Penetrates Cold Resistance. use the Awakened version to apply Exposure on Hit.
[UTILITY] Aura setup

Tempest Shield Tempest Shield - Use it for additional Spell Block Chance and to Shock enemies.
Purity of Elements Purity of Elements - We have used Purity of Elements for Elemental Ailment immunity and Elemental Resistances. It makes gearing up much easier.
Enlighten Enlighten Support - With level 4 Enlighten you won't need any additional Reservation Efficiency. Corrupt one of your Unique gear pieces to increase its level.
[UTILITY] Herald of Ice
Herald of Ice Herald of Ice - Clear speed is much better. It adds Cold Damage to Spells and Shatters frozen enemies on kill.
[UTILITY] Sniper's Mark setup
Sniper's Mark Sniper's Mark - Marked enemy takes increased Projectile Damage.
Mark on Hit Mark on Hit Support - Sniper's Mark is applied automatically on Hit against Rare and Unique enemies. You'll have to use Chield Charge.

6. Gear Setup

With Purity of Elements, Endurance Charges, and some additional Attributes and Resistances from Jewels, it's possible to equip the character exclusively with Unique items. Nevertheless, we recommend using Rare Gloves and Rings for that purpose. Most of the mandatory Uniques are cheap so scout for favourable Corrupted Implicit modifiers such as increased level of socketed Gems or extra Spell Crit Chance. Rings and Jewels are the most expensive parts of this build. The character has almost no Armour, but due to the abundance of Endurance Charges, it takes vastly reduced Physical Damage, and so investing in Armour is rather pointless. Your focus should be on extending the Maximum Power Charge limit, seeking stats that scale up with Charges, capping Crit Chance, getting more Critical Strike Multiplier, and increasing the Gem Level of Winter Orb. Life Leech can be found on a Large Cluster Jewel, while ES Leech is easily obtained by spending one Passive Skill Point on an ES Leech node. You will need some extra Strength and Intelligence, the Skill Tree does not grant you enough of these.

Our recommended items will:

  1. Cap your resistances at 75%
  2. Provide you with enough DPS and Life to start mapping

Stat priorities on items:

  1. Maximum Life
  2. Elemental Resistances
