Screenshot with all permanent buff + Blood of Dreeg, and Pneumatic Burst.
DPS shown is Chillspikes
- Insane cruci clear speed
- Full spellcaster gameplay
- Almost immortal, Crazy lifesteal and super tanky
- Witch hunter has no good flat absorb skill (blade barrier doesn’t count), cannot facetank Mad Queen’s rage mode.
- Not arcanist, cannot dump more points in spirit…
- Requires a lot of conversion.
Frankly speaking, Chillwhisper is not a good set. Very lacking in status, very lacking in defensive status, no additional RR for necro, and RoH mod is non-existent despite claiming to be a RoH set. Fortunately, there is one good thing about this set, which is Blade Spirit.
So the goal here is to make a pure blade spirit build. As RoH is trashy now and the set boasts Zero frickin phys res, I don’t want to make it as infiltrator. Well, it will be also quite boring as so many ppl has attempted the obvious way of chillwhisper infiltrator (and reaper). Thus, witch hunter is chosen because that mastery has almost no good build aside of Venomblade and Demonslayer. Also this build should be able to fill the rare breed of cold caster that is very lacking right now after RoH nerfs.
Occultist fix quite many holes in the set, which is mainly phys res. With a good vitality>cold conversion provided by the helm and the new gargoyle waistguard, sigil of consumption become a good support skills. Chillspikes is used as a support spam skill, strengthened by converting pierce>cold. Both of this conversion make twin fangs very fitting and leeching a lot. Other extra conversion aether>cold, is not that useful, but makes revenant’s skeleton in this build almost pure cold. All in all makes the build quite powerful and very pleasant to play.
Craft 2 pieces of equipments for stun res, craft others for phys res. Get as max pierce>cold conversion as possible, get as max aether>cold as possible, and get as max vitality > cold conversion as possible.
Dread Sigils of Alkamos Set. [converting some pierce to cold, good stats overall, very good defensive proc, and filling the almost non-existent of OA in this build]
Off Hand: Mythical Grasp of the Dead. [Additional Blade spirit]
Gloves: Mythical Chilling Grip of Hagarrad. [Converting up to 30% pierce to cold, nice additional damaging mod to Veil of Shadow, and good stats overall]
Belt: Gargoyle Waistguard. [Freshly buffed at 18.104.22.168 giving Vitality>Cold conversion and +Nightblade. Tempest prefix is BiS. Use whatever you like though.]
Amulet: Conduit of Night Whisper with + Blade Spirit summon. [Get either pierce or chaos resist]
Pants: Mythical Legwraps of the Tranquil Mind. [More Spirit, OA, and slow res. All the status we need]
Boots: Mythical Footpads of the Gray Magi. [We need a phys res and this boots provide a lot with acceptable active rate. Also provide relevant stats and skill bonus]
Medal: Mythical Mark of Dark Dreams. [Makes our passive RR almost have the same range as 22/12 Censure, which is crucial for this type of build, also has nice additional damaging mod.]
Relic: Nidalla’s Outbreak. [Current best Nightblade relic, especially because we are converting pierce damage. Completion bonus to night’s chill is the best, but I am just too lazy to craft another relic]
Movement Rune: Use whatever you like. I use Rune of Amatok’s Breath currently.

Movement rune in
Hold your Chillspikes button while mashing SoC and RoS button, also casting CoF to new incoming enemy.
In Trash waves, you want the enemies to surround you. In boss/nemesis wave, you want the enemies to be in front of you.
YOU CANNOT FACETANK MADQUEEN’S RAGE MODE BECAUSE THIS BUILD HAS A FREAKIN LOT OF PROJECTILES
When she comes in wave 162, she will almost immediately goes in to rage mode. Cast CoF and blood pox to her and kite her while killing other enemies, after the red aura dies down, slaughter her. Easy.
Build PerformanceCrucible: For 170 Crucible, video with 4 buff without banner:
6:20 clear time. As usual, this is a NO BANNER run.
This is my current faster run with this build. With a lot of kuba, fabius, and moosi; it usually goes into almost 7 minutes. Average clear time without banner is 6:40.
This build has 100% cruci clear rate. Feels good making a tanky, fast, and reliable chillwhisper as witch hunter…
Haven’t checked yet. Should be good though.
Enjoy this funky chillwhisper…
