Pure Frostbuild Burning

Post by WhizzarD » November 10th, 2016, 12:40 pm

Hello there, fellow ToSser!

My name is WhizzarD, I am new to ToS, doing my best to learn the ins and outs. As allways I chose the Wizard class, and as allways I try to build one with a focus on frost. I love frost (that one movie not so much, can't stand singalong)

So I looked into possible frostbuilds and came up with this:
http://www.tosbase.com/tools/skill-simu ... tg6g4417m/

I would love to hear YOU burn my build. Tell me everything BAD about this build. Tell me how you would own me in PvP because of all the bad decisions I've made. Show me my weak spots, as there will be plenty. Tell me how you would do a far better job. Completely en utterly roast it. I need some critical feedback before I actually spend those skillpoints. I'm at Cryo2 at the moment.

(I searched for similar posts but the result was unfortunate, hence this thread)

THANKS in advance!

Well actually it's not that bad idea to focus on one type of damage.
I would suggest you something like this thou.
There are different ways to increase your damage, mainly focus on one type of damage or synergy on the status.
[Rune of Ice] + [Frost Field] looks nice and all of your other skills benefit from [Rune of Ice] also effect i 50 sec and cooldown is 60 so you can always have it with delay of 16 sec (10 sec downtime + 6 sec cast time).

Thanks for the suggestion!

I don't really see how 5/10 surespell would be a great adjustment. Is it? can you explain why?
It crossed my mind to Wiz 2 and 3 for Surespell and Quickcast, but to elementalist first just has a greater appeal.
I think Wiz 2 is only good if you also do Wiz 3, what do you think?

Thanks! There are several things I learned from your advise.
The hint of ocd in the back of my mind kept me urging to max skills. It's a very good idea to spread and have more skills so they are not all on cooldown at the same time at some point in a crowded battle. This is what's happening to me more than I'd like right now, especially if I'm tired and miss 2 IceSpikes in a row.
The Rune is indeed very interesting to top off the build.
Thanks for the indepth reply!

Warning : Run of ice won't work with Frost cloud... and Hail
https://www.reddit.com/r/treeofsavior/c ... ent_magic/

Btw this Korean lasted patch might works well with Cyro3
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzf246EIZvg

Cryo3 attribute
Ice wall: Duration attribute?
Requires: Cryomancer rank 3
=> Increase duration of ice wall by 10 seconds. Cost: 13 420

'Use Ice blast on Ice Wall to damage enemies near the ice wall.
'Ice blast is able to damage enemies affected by Frost Pillar.

Wait... is that the current patch or is it a korea-only thing? That is an awesome cynergy of skills.
Atributes other than 1% damage increase are much more interesting and allow more dynamics. Another good argument to put iceblast back on the list.
The incompatibility between ele and rune are a major downside to consider, thanks for bringing that up!

Since September, Korean and iTos repositories in state of merge. So in near future there will be no differences and everything that goes to Korea will appear in iTos too, at same time.

After a closer look and a lot of consideration i've decided to take your suggestion to wiz2 after cry3. I'd like to thank you again for pointing it out. Surespell is allmost mandatory with all the casting time ele has going on.
