Intro & build description
If you still haven’t decided on what to play in the upcoming Forbidden Sanctum league, the freezing pulse is receiving a quite hefty buff which makes this build a very solid pick for a league starter.
As long as you upgrade your wants or daggers once in a while and level up your skills, you should find yourself getting into that endgame without any issues and start grinding the maps.
- Can be a league starter in a fresh league
- Extremely fund and satisfying gameplay
- Not at all expensive to get rolling
- Safe as most of the mobs are frozen or already dead
- Some of the BiS items can be expensive
