is that ok ?

To build around Absolute Zero with Glacial Nova you need a lot of Shrines, jewels, ACs and patience to make it look decent. You can definitely try now but better be prepared for some failure :) you can PM me on discord or here for further stuff...

ok thanks
i will build it late

can you add some stats that one should reach before switching to the "ssf" cold build? im really tired of poison and want to try cold now that i can reach lvl 26 for 3 projectiles, but im unsure what i would need for it to be stronger than poison and im trying to not waste my respecs :D

like how much cold pen and cold spell would i want for it. im rolling some items with the shrines i find, but damn nothing good is ever rolling :D

also, hows the defense with the ssf gear? seems like the only thing rolling defensivly is ED on armor. does it deal enough damage to change some pieces with more defensive runewords? or am i just that unlucky and havent seen other defensive stats?

with SSF cold gear you will lack PR and have to stay away from mobs casting Banshees behind your Acid Fiends. Use
Megalith
Megalith
Boots

'Ath'
Runeword Level: 90
+1 to All Skills
25% Cast Speed
15% Hit Recovery
+(115 to 143)% Enhanced Defense
+(41 to 50) to Strength
Regenerate Mana +30%
Physical Resist 5%
for some DR and some fhr, cast speed and flat str to wear other gear.
When crafting look for good ED rolls on Belt and Armor cause flat defense scales good with TCD from Lifeshield.
Aim for 120- 135 cold pierce and at least 3k Banshee max damage.
The gameplay will change since HB is autoaiming. Sometimes they will will not target the mobs you want to :)

Guide updated to 1.4.
Another love-patch for the build thanks to poison avatar damage buff that makes the early/mid gameplay even smoother. Too bad strenght bonus from feed the pack was removed in hotfix, it would have been another nice addition, but really can't complain.
Endgame we decided to switch from Feed The Pack to Circle of Life now since more fhr will help you a lot in places like Fauztinville, and since %reanimates from the wolf tree passive was reduced without hard points into Werewolf Form. You will be really safe anyway (expecially in Storm spec) so they will be not really needed anymore.

From previous patch wolf and bear passives can be used by casters and other druid builds too. You don't need to be morphed to get the benefits.

setup, since it's a mace we can stay in Werebear morph for that massive life bonus, 120 fcr & 200 fhr for 6 & 3 fpa.

Feels quite worth considering. And bear wielding cold/lightning magic ? Cool factor is off the charr.
