[3.16] Ice Shot Deadeye | Full Guide

Intro & build description

Who doesn’t like to shatter and freeze the whole screen of monsters while running through maps with ease? If this sounds like something you would like to do in the upcoming Scourge league, this build might be just for you! While the build can appear quite expensive at first, it does not require all the items listed below to function. Build can be played as a league starter with some gear adjustments and upgrades. As soon as you reach the endgame, you will find yourself rushing through maps with ease and farming up currency quite quickly.

Build Pros

  • Amazing map farming build
  • Very fun and fast-paced gameplay
  • Insane damage
  • Ranged build
  • Good control due to Ice Shot and freezing/slowing of the mobs

Build Cons

  • Can be quite squishy (build is meant to clear maps fast and farm up currency)
