Default [Ranged Cold] DW-Pistols Pure Cold ABB Spellbreaker

A Dual Pistol Cold ABB concept and a Cold Savagery concept. Each concept has two builds.

Infiltrator - https://www.grimtools.com/calc/bVAR9boZ



*Screenshot with Inquisitor Seal, Word of Renewal, Pneumatic Burst, Lethal Assault and Deadly Aim


Trickster - https://www.grimtools.com/calc/YZeORAr2



*Screenshot with Savagery Charges, Lethal Assault and Pneumatic Burst


Vindicator - https://www.grimtools.com/calc/vNQzkXj2



*Screenshot with Inquisitor Seal, Deadly Aim and Savagery Charges



FAQ -

Which is the best one?

I prefer the spellbreaker the most but each one has its own strengths so try them all out.


Is the Vindicator good despite the low sheet DPS?

The Inquisitor WPS are a fair bit of damage boost.


Why not use Eye of the Storm on Vindicator?

It lacked RR so from an effective performance POV, Ignaffar was much better.



In Closing-

I made this build back when ABB had its weapon restriction removed, it has come a long way since then. The Cold Savagery mod that got added in AoM is also pretty awesome. Overall had a good time playing these builds, hope you guys enjoy them as well.

Hey nice build! Your builds are always creative.

I had considered trying a cold spellbreaker, but never even thought of a ranged version. Thanks for showing how its done.

Also, I just have to praise the game and Crate for the amazing build diversity in this game. There is such a variety of ultimate viable builds, as evidenced by this forum and builds such as yours. I have not seen any other ARPG with such build diversity.

Thanks mate.

Also agreed on the point about Crate, the build diversity is really great in this one. I love it.
I mean you can even make a build around a skill granted by an item,
make unusual yet viable builds,
bitch freeze bosses,
and break the taboo of having to focus on a single damage type.
This new patch also brings some nice changes

Very interesting. I also tried to make an sharpshooter via the cold damage, but I could not get anything good. Then it was transformed into auromancer, but that's another story.

Definitely an interesting build. I've wanted to try an ranged cold but couldn't work stuff out. Any chance at listed the skills without the gear bonuses?

You invest it all into Physique since Nightblade has good cunning returns and scales with cunning i didn't invest a point in it. Spirit is also not an issue since Inner Focus scales with spirit

Based on a theory I'm working on, can you try getting either 140% or 177% attack speed? I think those two speeds would work with ABB better, assuming you're keeping your 26% cooldown reduction. Here is the equation I used:

S = floor(100/(1.8*(1-C)/H)/2-10) [%]

where:
S = attack speed
C = cooldown reduction
H = how many hits to proc ABB. In this case it can be 4 or 5
