__________________________________________________________________________Is this build for you?
1. If you are looking for a top tier clear speed Blade Vortex build.
2. A build that is viable in both hardcore & softcore.
3. Insanely high clear speed with high eHP & strong defenses.
4. If you prefer a build guide that has a video linked to it.
__________________________________________________________________________Build Enabling/Enhancing Items: Inpulsa is the main big item we are using to enhance our general clear speed with. You can play the build without it but will be a bit slower.
The most important unique item is a super cheap pair of Hrimsorrow which converts 50% of your physical damage to cold, this combined with the support gem “Physical to Lightning” you are simply not dealing any physical damage at all, allowing you to run Physical Reflect rolled maps and you are both shocking & freezing your enemies reliably with crits.
__________________________________________________________________________Defence & Utility
The build utilizes a lot of crits allowing you to reliably freeze & shock your enemies on top of a few other minor tweaks listed blow;
A simple CWDT setup combined with Immortal Call is there to help you vs Bone Husks & Porcupines.
Here is a link to a downloadable calculator for how much effective HP you’ll have with Mind Over Matter: Mind Over Matter eHP Calculator
__________________________________________________________________________Pantheon Choices: Pantheon List Major God:
– Soul of the Brine King
Helps you avoid getting chain stunned.
– Soul of Shakari
Makes you immune to poison damage if you upgrade it.
__________________________________________________________________________Skill-gems & Setups: Blade Vortex:
– Blade Vortex, Controlled Destruction, Physical to Lightning, Increased Area of Effect, Increased Critical Strikes, Increased Critical Damage
Gems are listed in order of efficiency.
You can use Vaal Blade Vortex as well which is highly recommended for this build! Curse on Hit Herald:
– Curse on Hit, Warlord’s Mark, Herald of Thunder Mobility:
– Shield Charge, Fortify, Faster Attacks Cast When Damage Taken:
– CWDT, Immortal Call, Warlord’s Mark, Increased Duration Utility:
– Herald of Ice, Summon Lightning Golem, Flame Dash, PortalOPTIONAL:
If you’re using Lightpoacher then you should get one with only 1 abyssal socket and link it with:
– Faster Projectile, Greater Multiple Projectiles, Physical to Lightning This way you deal 0 physical damage with it & it deals good dmg on a wide spread area.
If you’re not using Lightpoacher then you can use what ever you want, another CWDT setup, curse on hit setups etc etc, or you can sort an Arcane Surge setup which would look something like this:
– Arcane Surge (lvl 9), Immortal Call, Increased Duration, Phase Run
The phase run only increases the duration of arcane surge when you cast Immortal Call if you have Frenzy charges.
__________________________________________________________________________Skill-tree & Ascendancy Nodes: Ascendancy Nodes:
This is the order of preference for my personal playstyle, starting with Weave the Arcane allows for a much earlier implementation of Mind over Matter! Leveling skill-tree, 32 points Leveling skill-tree, 49 points Leveling skill-tree, 83 points Finished skill-tree
1. Once the skill-tree is finished, just focus 100% on more jewel slots.
If you wish, as of patch 3.3 we are able to rather smoothly lvl as Blade Vortex, in which case we start of by supporting it with gems like:
Added Fire, Added Cold,, Added Lightning. The Cold & Lightning are later replaced by Controlled Destruction & Elemental Focus till we reach higher lvl & gearing to follow the gem section for the end-game gems.
– Kill them all, they don’t grant anything worth the skillpoints you’d lose
__________________________________________________________________________Gearing & Stat Priorities What base items to use:
The base items of this build really doesn’t matter as we don’t care about the base defensive stats such as armour(str), evasion(dex) or energy shield(int). So instead the base items will follow the stat priority listed in this guide.
However, the attribute requirement of the items will base how hard it is to chrome (color) which will be the only thing we will think about when planing our gearing.
So, if you need 4 blue sockets in an item the recommendation is to get an item that has Energy Shield (int) base or a hybrid base which includes Energy Shield (int).
By using this chrome calculating website: https://siveran.github.io/calc.html you can easily track how hard it will be to chrome the colors you need. This YouTube playlist can help a lot for new players and also includes a few tricks when coloring items with the “wrong attribute requirements” for your build: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLuu-MdPs0Af8A4e3gSsJ1xDKNNcdFwY1r Defensive Stats:
1. Critical Strike Chance for Spells
1. Critical Strike Multiplier
2. Elemental DMG (and elemental specific such as cold/lightning)
2. Spell DMG
2. Area DMG
3. Cast Speed
Same as the offensive stats unless you need defensive stats, then mix or follow that.Flasks:
Before you can afford Taste of Hate, you could balance your resistances to use The Wise Oak

For the Inquisitor version click HERE! The differences between Inquisitor & Elementalist version is this:
Inquisitor is faster in solo play and/or with an aurabot support, however, if you have someone in the party cursing, the elementalist will always be the stronger option.
