Default [V1.0.6.1] Winter King Infiltrator

[V1.0.6.1] Melee/Caster/hc/u/vid/g#

Winter King Infiltrator




Pretty safe two-handed cold Infiltrator build, that has decent amount of hp, OA/DA, good armor and great damage/resist reduction. That character managed to kill all "max cold resist" nemeses (undead/beast/cronley) and Iron Maiden (less then 19sec). Also my 1st. "no-soldier" HC build, that works :3


PROS

Good AoE
damage with Rune of Hagarrad/Leviathan/Amarasta's Blade Burst
+
Great sustain
Huge amount of hp, armor, decent DA, 2 passive heal constellations + 2 aktive heals (pneum. burst word of ren.), dryad, medal
+
Excellent resist reduction
-185% from all sources (skills/devotions/equipment) and -320 DA reduction (Rune of Hagarrad + Amulets component)
+
Good Crowd Control
Horn of Gandarr/Ring of Steel/Leviathan+Helm+Veil of Shadow slow enemies movement a lot


CONS

Requires rare non-craftable green rings and pants, otherwise pretty squishy
+
high mana cost (may need to use a mana potion from time to time)
+
many buttons



Pic. without any buffs, except for 5 auras and deadly aim, ABB for LM.

FAQ:
Where is Amatok?
- Blizzard has a bit cc and destroys most of enemies, but is less useful against Bosses imho. You can take it instead of Dryad, especially when you play softcore
Why no Alkamos Rings?
- You can use Alkamos blue/purple rings for better damage, if you play Softcore. "prefix" Living Rings of NB have good +hp/+%hp/stun reduction and resistance stats.
Infiltrator or Spellbreaker?
- Sure it will work fine with Arcanist and Nightblade, but 1st. has less hp and 0 good AoE abilities for cold damage, also 0 resist reduction
Aura of Conviction or Aura of Censure?
- Aura of Conviction provides good OA/phys. resist and +%frostburn damage, but Aura of Censure has a free Maiven's Sphere (20% reduced targets damage and !!!! -35% elemental resist. For faster leveling take the 1st. one, but change it to Aura of Censure, when you start playing on Ultimate.
No use of item granted Winter King's Might?
The helm granted skill was prolly fixed and doesn't deal much damage (3 projektiles 20k dmg each), but you can use it with "Rumor". I'd stay with "Horn of Gandarr" for better crowd control.




Equipment:

Relic - Ignaffar's Combustion (+DA/+AS/-cold res.)
Weapon - Mythical Bane of the Winter King (+flat cold dmg/+armor/-cold res.)
Armor - Mythical Frostdread Cuirass (+flat cold dmg)
Helm - Mythical Crown of the Winter King (+flat cold damage/-cold res./)
Gloves - Mythical Icekorn Talons (good damage boost for ABB)
Amulet - Mageslayer's Protector (+OA/-cold resist)
Medal - Mythical Mark of Divinity (+hp/musthave for no soldier)
Ring - Incorruptible Living Ring of NB (+hp/+% cold dmg/+resists)
Ring #2 - Generals Living Ring of NB (same as 1st. + stun resist)
Pants - Impervious Aleksander's Chausses of Vitality (+hp xD)


Playstyle:

LMB - Amarasta's Blade Burst (w/ Dryads Blessing)
RMB - Shadow Strike (w/ Whirlpool)
Keyboard 1 - Rune of Hagarrad
Keyboard 2 - Pneumatic Burst
Keyboard 3 - Inquisitors Seal
Keyboard 4 - Horn of Gandarr (w/ Rumor)
Keyboard 5 - Ring of Steel (w/ Elemental Storm)
Keyboard Q - Word of Renewal
Mouse 4 (back) - Blade Barrier


Leveling:
Coming soon


VIDEOS:

**First two nemeses have maximal 97% cold resist**

I remember there was a build by Chinese guy I think, just grimtools and a video where kills Lokkar in 11 seconds with Infiltrator with similiar items. Except he spams Winter King's Might from helmet. Have you tried it? Probably better with blue Alkamos rings.

I've finished AoM expansion, but haven't tried to kill any super-bosses yet. Alkamos ring's are good, but since i'm playing HC i care more about "not-to-die" than "deal-more-dmg"

Maybe something like this

But squeeze Ghoul instead of Jackal there. Just try this skill from helmet, it's much stronger than ABB once in 1,8 seconds, much more sustain too.

Thanks for your respond! I would like to keep Dryad for heal and reduction in bleeding duration (Iron Maiden, Kubacabra, Fabius). However with your items damage will be greater, but 11k hp is 1-shot for Grava'Thul :c
Just tried, 29k dmg (x1.94 crit) with 2k+ cold modifier and high mana cost, not an option, sowwy

This one's great. It's awkward not seeing the helm skill in a winter king build though. I suggest moving Rumor to Winter king's might and whirlpool to shadow strike. This allows you to proc 2 whirlpools at the same time. Useful against hard bosses. And the shotgun/spammability of the winter king skill is more effective at proccing rumor.

Edit: not suggesting you use the helm skill for damage. Just as a devotion proccer. You don't need horn of gandarr with my suggested setup so it's not more buttons.

oh, well, I just tried to replicate that Chinese guy build, was just a draft. But he sure did use Winter King's Might as a damage skill. Imo, if you cap Casting Speed, 165% weapon damage piercing enemies shotgun is hella strong. Just need to find correct items to patch all the hp/resist problems (maybe good greenshoulders).

Just changed shadowstrike + whirlpools and Rumor + Horn of Gandarr, it works much better thanks! For Rumor there is only 15% "chance of Atack" with "Winter king's might", but 87% with "Horn of Gandarr"

Winter King's might is better for rumor cause it's spammable, even with lower proc chance you can at least spam it until it activates. Horn of Gandarr has 87% but if you don't proc rumor with one cast, then you wait 6s to have another chance at proccing it again, reducing your effective dps.
