Critique My Cold Blooded Build

  • #1
    Critique my cold blooded build please. I'm just now starting Hell and this has served me well in Nightmare; guess I just want some feedback from you fine folks so I can adapt my play style before I attempt Inferno.

    Cheers.

    I'm not a big fan of Meteor. It just takes too long to cast. That's just me, though.

    The problem I see with this on inferno is that you have 1 spell that takes 1,5 second to land and do dmg and another that you need to channel.
    The issue is that you cant rly stand still, that will result in death :D

    I can def see this work in nightmare/hell, but not rly on inferno.
    You meteor will basicly never hit, maybe the first use since they stand still if you spotted them from afar, but after that you need to kite not to die and with that your metor will miss.
    You do use frost nova that could make more metors hit, but it will be very tricky. Since under this time you will also need to spam your ray of frost.

    I could be wrong, but from my exp in inferno(currently on last boss of act 2) I would never survive with 1 channel spell and 1 that takes time to do dmg.

    Unless you've gotten really good gear from the AH, you'll probably want Energy Armor + Galvanizing Ward for the heal over Mirrors. The damage goes up significantly from Nightmare. To make room for an Armor skill, I'd take Blizzard with Frozen Solid, and sacrifice Frost Nova - you might want it on a few boss fights if you use it to interrupt a cast, but in general you wont as long as you drop Blizzard. I prefer Electrocute with the chain lightning glyph since you can chain it off screen and its great for packs slowed in your blizzard. You'll also find you need to do more damage quickly, so I'd take Magic Weapon with Force Weapon.

    Until you get Force Armor, you'll probably want Ice Armor with the Ice Reflect glyph for more novas.

    Yeah I was a little concerned about having to stand still for Ray of Frost. Though I never really have a problem landing comet. So far in Hell I've been having good luck using frost nova to freeze enemies and then blasting them with two comets.

    This seems to be the paradigm though I do really like mirror images.
