After playing around and further refining my Cold/Acid ABB Witch Hunter I noticed that there is a noticeable shortage of Chaos Damage Converted to Cold Damage among all equipment, but particularly if you go for melee Witch Hunter. I wanted to see what other players did with the Chaos Damage from SWF and Possession, so I searched the forum and here are the only two builds I could find:
Both builds have no way to convert that flat Chaos they get from SWF/Possession, whereas my build converts up to 30% to Acid, but none to Cold.
By going for Cold ABB as a WH you have few options to use, so it’s no surprise with the use of Olexra’s Chill. Here are some options I have for this weapon to gain conversion:
Since Olexra’s Chill only supports 3 skills currently and have modifiers to 2, there could be an additional skill to support such as SWF (or maybe BoD). I think something like this would work:
- +3 to Solael’s Witchfire
- 20 Cold Damage to Solael’s Witchfire
- +50% Cold Damage to Solael’s Witchfire
- 100% Chaos Damage Converted to Cold Damage to Solael’s Witchfire
The other (easier) option would just be to give Olexra’s Chill a global 50% Chaos to Cold conversion. This would force you to use 2 if you want the full conversion though and your Attack Speed suffers as a result…
Seeing that Olexra’s Chill has no Attack Speed, I think the first option is the better of the two as it will make the slower strikes you make hit harder from the added flat and % Cold. Having the conversion for SWF at 100% seems reasonable as it’s only for Occultist-based class combos.
What do you all think? Any other options or equipment you can think of to get more of this conversion?
