[1.1.7.2] Olexra of the Sky - freezing and devastating Spellbreaker, SR 65+

INTRODUCTION

The reason behind this build is to make The Mageslayer set work with cold Devastation. Build uses Olexra’s Flash Freeze to freeze enemies and then you drop Devastation on them and Trozan’s Sky Shards. For cold devastation Arcanum Frigus gun is needed. For shorter cooldowns the build uses huge cooldown reduction and Eternity relic. For spamming between spells and for healing with lifesteal Chain Lightning from component is used. Your main defense is freezing enemies, then lifesteal, Pneumatic Burst, Ghoul and Mirror. Build is a glass canon. In long battles you will have to take energy potions. SR 65-66 is relatively easy.

I have other builds using OFF here, here , here , here , here , here and here .

Build uses two green monster infrequent items - Terrnox’s Aether Tome and Stoneplate Greaves. Affixes are chosen for resistances. Two crafting bonuses are to freeze resistance and stun resistance.

SR, CRUCIBLE

Build is capable of doing SR 65-66 relatively easily and a skilled pilot can go higher with it. But be aware of a mutator that increases enemy’s CC resistances in SR (with that mutator you will have to kite some enemies - without that mutator you can freeze them and they are OK). Build is not a total tank but can tank for a while. I don’t push my builds higher than SR 65-66. I don’t have a time number for Crucible because I don’t play it.

Try build mageslayer around Hourglass devotion binded to olexra, if you cast it 2 times in row you may freeze bosses and keep them freezed all the time with additional freeze sources. Works vs every boss except Moosilauke.

Yes, I know but not my goal in this build. OFF with TSS and Eternity works OK as well. You don’t need to have 100 % freeze for it to be a great defense.

I have done that in this build [1.1.6.2] Albrecht the Freezer - Fire AAR + OFF Sorcerer with massive CDR and RR, extremely funny build, SR 65

Hourglass cooldown abuse for OFF is common and boring. I would rather see other ways of doing it like here

It just makes game easier, nothing else change.

A bit but not by much. Going for Hourglass also means some compromises in the devos. I rather went for damage and RR instead. I also tried many variations of devotions and affixes and only this one was satisfactory to me. I did not try any combinations with Hourglass tho.

Is a build similar to this possible for Infiltrator?

No, infiltrator does not have Devastation or TSS and no Star Pact as well.

Noob here. Can someone explain to me how this devotion track works? I’m only level 50 right now, but I’ve been trying to replicate the devotions chosen and I don’t see how it’s possible with only 1 point in blue and 1 in yellow at the crossroads. What am I missing?

From what I can tell, the constellations here are:

Hydra
Ghoul
Spider
Harvestman’s Scythe
Empty Throne
Rhowan’s Crown
Murmur, Mistress of Rumors
Solemn Watcher
Widow
Ultos, Shepherd of Storms
and it looks like a single point in Toad.

One possible way - I am sure there are many other ways to do it.

blue crossroads, eel, green crossroads, spider, widow, red crossroads, ghoul, remove red crossroads, murmur, purple crossroads, throne, remove purple crossroads, hydra, yellow crossroads, lion, scythe, watcher, remove lion, remove eel, rhowan’s crown, ultos, remove green crossroads, toad

Ah ok, I wasn’t thinking about how you could remove specific points along the way. Thanks for the response!
