Path Of Exile 3.14 Build Guide: All Around Wintertide Brand Occultist Build

The Path of Exile Ultimatum league was released on April 16. Although there were various difficulties after the release of this league, there are still many players who choose to enter this league, including many new players.

In Path of Exile, when we enter a new league, we need to create a new build. Before starting the build, we need to choose an excellent character class and then find a build guide.

The Best Starter Builds For Path Of Exile 3.14 (Ultimatum)

Here is the construction guide for All-Around Wintertide Brand Occultist:

Pros and Cons


  • Strong more boss with great clear
  • Relies on very cheap gear to get going
  • Required Uniques are not sought-after, thus league-start viable
  • Loads of HP Pool / Block Chance to make for a smooth playstyle


  • Pretty heavy on the Uniques – not SSF-friendly
  • Damage over Time builds aren’t for everyone

Passive Skill Tree

You can find an optimized Path of Building here. If you are not comfortable with Path of Building, we also have a PoePlanner for you. Do note that PoE Planner does not support Cluster Jewels and some specific unique jewels and it is highly recommended you install Path of Building to follow builds most optimally.

Gem Links

Wintertide Brand – Main Link (6-Link)

Wintertide Brand’s base damage scales are relatively hard with gem levels! Attempt to pick up a 21/20 as soon as possible. For the Awakened Gems, they’re relatively big upgrades as well as need to be purchased as soon as you can afford them!

  • Wintertide Brand
  • Awakened Controlled Destruction Support
  • Awakened Elemental Focus Support
  • Efficacy Support
  • Hypothermia Support
  • Swift Affliction Support

Chilling – Buffing with Vortex

Make sure to place Vortex on your Left computer mouse switch! This will certainly make your life a lot easier as well as your damages a lot more consistent. Because you’re running Elemental Focus for maximum DPS outcome on your Wintertide, you want a Vortex on every employer so it gets cooled and you get the bonuses from Hypothermia. On top of that, due to Bonechill, you get an outrageous multiplier to your Cold Damage over Time if enemies are Chilled.

  • Vortex
  • Controlled Destruction Support
  • Arcane Surge Support (level 7 when Vortex is level 20)
  • Bonechill Support

Trigger Wand Setup

As you want to obtain every one of these enthusiasts instantly cast, you require to socket them in your Trigger Wand. These effects include a ton of Damage through reducing resistances and revealing enemies to Cold Damage, proccing Elemental Equilibrium, and Cursing.

  • Orb of Storms
  • Frost Bomb
  • Frostbite


Because your Helmet makes you book extra Mana, it’s tough to suit a great deal of them. You pick up Discipline as well as Malevolence as your two Auras. On bosses or hard opponents, you reach press Vaal Righteous Fire for an extra influx of damages as needed.

  • Discipline
  • Malevolence
  • Vaal Righteous Fire

Movement Skills & Utility

Because your Helmet makes you book additional Mana, it’s hard to suit a good deal of them. You get Discipline along with Malevolence as your two Auras. On employers or difficult opponents, you get to press Vaal Righteous Fire for an additional increase of problems as required.

  1. Flame Dash
  2. Second Wind Support
  1. Vaal Cold Snap
  2. Increased Area of Effect Support

Free Utility Skills

Nevertheless of this, you’ll more than likely have an additional 4 free Sockets. I recommend using one of them to run a Summon Chaos Golem for some additional mitigation. Otherwise, a Cast when Damage Taken Support configuration with Immortal Call and also Increased Duration Support is an alternative.

  • Cast when Damage Taken Support
  • Increased Duration Support
  • Immortal Call
  • Summon Chaos Golem

When we build passive skill trees and gem links, we can use Poe currency items to reconstruct skill trees and strengthen skill gems.
