- sounds like you dumped alot into energy early game. the only way to solve this is to grab yourself like honorific boots or gloves or even both and stack them with stats and spell damage and spell focus. placing mystic orbs and pgems? catch my drift? :)

Hipposcottamus wrote:Heya, I just started doing rifts and have cleared a t4, I find I barely use frigid nova anymore. I have all the bis gear from the guide except I don't have UMOs on my gear. Frigid nova is about 12k tooltip, but pretty much tickles the mobs so I find myself killing everything with Glacial Torrent. Anyone else have similar experience? should I drop points from Frigid to get more passives? Also how much of a difference do Auriel's Focus make? I'm hesitant to dump all my tg on mystic orbs and find out the build runs into a wall in t9 rifts. https://tsw.vn.cz/char/ziphole this me ^_^



no i had the same problem. its because they dont freeze i think. for rifting its probably best to just use glacial torrent and maybe swapping the skill tree around to maybe more melee-ish compatible. such as; warp armor + nova charge , Snow Queen or Living Flame , picking yourself up moonstrike and cold blood on melee tree alongside melee devotion

you can start finding the set in k3k at 115, or you can farm i think Tran Athulua or it might be Torajan Jungles for the set pieces as well. However, i'll have you know, I used the Tiered Uniques all the way til level 120 xD

So ive got another question, with how you have 20 points into raven familiar in the arcane tree it doesnt give the +6 like its supposed to (which feels like a bug but not sure) should i keep the points there or should i allocate 3 points to something else until they fix it? (assuming its actually a bug.)

Ehhhh half the top 50 is all paladins lol I really don’t want to crack and join ‘em lol some build diversity capable of doing all content would be nice is all.

Buff all other classes, especially zon. She’s garbage right now
