The Cold DoT Elementalist is a league start all-rounder that is proficient at all content within POE. You're a Spell casting Damage over Time specialist with a focus on Chilling enemies and spreading your Chilling Ground through every arena.

While this build fills your skill bar with abilities to use, it is more than worth it with how much damage and survivability you obtain because of that. After finishing this build your reward is an easy transition to Ignite Vortex, a build which clears and deals all of it's damage with only Vortex on left mouse button!

Skills Breakdown

Creeping Frost shoots a projectile creating a Chilled ground on impact creeping towards the nearest enemies. This is your bread and butter ability as the AOE from Elementalist makes this a monster clear ability. While this DoT doesn't stack with itself, it does stack with the other abilities we use.

Ascendancy Breakdown

The Elementalist is your choice as it offers a lot of Damage, AOE to increase the ease of clearing and some survival through an Elemental Damage bubble.

  • Mastermind of Discord gives your Exposure an additional -25% shredding of Resistances.
  • Heart of Destruction grants a massive Damage boost after hitting a Unique Enemy and an AOE boost when you've not hit a Unique Enemy Recently.
  • Shaper of Storms allows all of your damage to Shock and gives you a minimum Shock of 15% which you scale with increased non-damaging Ailment effect.
  • Bastion of Elements gives an Elemental Damage absorbing shield that regenerates after not taking damage. You're also immune to Reflected Elemental Damage, removing the need to re-roll that modifier on maps.
