|Play Your Way Thursday â€“ Leshinâ€™s â€œIce Goddessâ€ Wizard||Category: Diablo BlogSeptember-1-2016 10:00 AM PDT (7 years ago)|
While Wizards are the ultimate master of a variety of elements, it can be a lot of fun to invest fully in one particular style. Fire and Lightning are both popular options, but sometimes itâ€™s best to chill out and entomb your enemies in bone-chilling Cold abilities. Todayâ€™s Play Your Way from Leshin#1101 turns their Wizard into an unforgiving Ice Goddess that will make any monster in Sanctuary shiver at mere sight.
About the Build
First and foremost, the Ice Goddess Wizard is a channeling build, taking advantage of your usual round-up of channel-boosting powers and abilities and stacking as many of them as possible. This does mean you should be willing to plant your feet and stand your groundâ€”a risky playstyle many players are naturally averse to adopting. However, this approach becomes quite exciting once you discover that you will rarely be budged. Like an iceberg in dangerous waters, those that run headlong into you wonâ€™t survive.
Like many of the other submissions weâ€™ve seen, most of the testing of this build occurred on Torment X and thereâ€™s definitely room to expand toward the necessary damage and survivability that higher difficulties would demand. Leshin has left several slots open for flexibility, including bracers, boots, amulet, and belt, as well as an opening for a third Legendary Gem. Iâ€™ve made my own recommendations below, but itâ€™s clear thereâ€™s plenty to explore!
