DA debuff from biting cold won't stack with horn of Gandarr. Also going above 3800 total OA is not efficient (counting deadly aim and DA debuff)

Oh shits, is it because they both has the wording "# reduced ttarget's XXX"?
There goes my reason to use horn of gandarr.
I will try to look for another tome to replace this one then.

BTW, DA shred from elgoloth can still stack with biting cold right?

Yes. Its the same mechanic as resist reduction

Does it make sense to use Hourglass here? ( instead of Amatok ).

Something like this...

For CC resist perhaps. The only skill that really benefits from Aeon proc is mirror. Word of renewal to some degree. Rune and trozan have 1,2 and 1,6 sec cooldowns.

Its not bad per se just doesn't feel very synergistic here. It will help in crucible wave 160-170 if you want to go there, even 50% slow resist alone is fantastic. But won't be very useful outside it.

Thanks for your reply.

It's always nice to see a non-full set & begginer-friendly build, which works at 150-170.

I'm wondering whether this sort of build could work with a pistol (current ultimate target: Mythical Chillborer), for the (admittedly brief) times when both Rune and Sky Shard are on cooldown.

Granted that my Mage Hunter is only L21 right now, so direct experience with reducing cooldown for each to less than two seconds isn't exactly there...

Its not the kind of build to stop working, even if losing that wand means -300% cold and lightning and a skill modifier. But what do you need that pistol for? From the looks of it, thats for attacks, and DOTs?

I was mostly thinking in terms of there being no lulls between Rune and Sky Shard casts. That is, fill the lulls with bullet shots.

There are chillspikes from the seal of the night. They have frostburn too and can kill trash, much better than shooting. The wand has 290% cold and lightning +120% more if you use Trozan hat as the 2nd set bonus, extra projectile and flat damage to trozan. If you want to optimize a trozan build, thats huge.
