This build revolves around spamming Frost Wave while buffed with Elemental Boom and the respective Item Skills.

This build is basically an dungeon massacre machine where you rely on the spammage of Frost Waves to dispatch all your enemies.


Hailstorm for the range, AOE, stuns and terrian abuse.
Frost Phrase for ease of movement and as an escape mechanism.
Ice Prison for mob control and Prismatic Rift as a defensive measure.
Notice that all the possible points (from fame) are not used and the remaining could be used for Astral Ally, Frozen Fate or Staff Mastery.
I’ve decided not to add Frozen Fate as mobs would be cleared in a matter of seconds.
Ultimately, the gist is to spam Frost Wave, the other skills can be configured to complement the player.

Also a plus is that its levelling friendly, that is once you reach the level available to use the Frost Wave, its easy to play with as you dont really have to save points up. The only worry is Mana management, but with a few points in Charge Mastery, you basically have a fully charged bar after 1-2 small groups of mobs and you’re practically a spell casting machine.

Even possible to Solo the lvl 100 dungeons at level 50ish without dying. Use Frost Wave/Hailstorm to scout and damage,Ice Prison to stop mobs in their tracks and maneuver away from danger with Frost Phrase. Thunder Locus can also be used for boss-killing.

Works wonders with both Single and Multiplayer.


Q:So what the hell do you do for your first 28 levels while you wait to get Frost Wave?
A:The build is meant to be flexible with excess points. A spammable skill like the basic elemental bolts can be invested in. Or you can party and be carried till 28.

Q:Is this workable on elite?
A:The build works for all levels of difficulty.

Q:What is the point of maxing Ice Prison?
A:Its a great mob control tool when solo-ing tough dungeons and is useful against bosses.
