Intro & build description
Very fun build to play, charge up the winter orb stacks and dash around while the skill explodes the screen full of mobs for you. If you like automated builds such as auto bomber when you do not have to target mobs yourself and prefer the skill doing the job for you, you might consider looking into this one and give it a shot.
- Super fun and satisfying gameplay
- Very high damage
- Quite tanky with decent gear (~6.5-7k ES)
- Can do all content with proper preparation
- Quite expensive, two void batteries are best in slot weapons
