[PoE 3.9] Freezing Pulse Totems Templar (Hierophant)

Intro & build description

A very strong choice for the build to push high maps or even to start in a new league due to how strong and effective totems are. With a minimal currency investment, you can breeze through map tiers with ease. Totem builds, in general, are very safe and easy to play, summon totems and run around collecting loot while you totems do the killing for you.

Build Pros

  • Dirt cheap to begin with
  • Perfect league starter build
  • Very safe
  • Good single target damage and great clear speed
  • Everything around you is frozen/shattered

Build Cons

  • Some people don't like totem builds
