Got to level 40 and into cruel with this, seemed to work pretty well. Done in by glitchy undead Rhoas and the Necromancer and probably a bit of overconfidence.   :-[

New and improved ( to be seen ) build, 10pts at a time.

My Templar build I am working on: http://www.pathofexile.com/passive-skill-tree/AAAAAgUBAnEEswVbDPcVuBmFGjIaOBpsHNwdFB6UJCUkiySqKU8quiymLR8zVjbpN2Y3gzrYO-E8BTwtPQ89X0GHQ2NGcUbXTdhPfVFgUlNY9V3GXp9gbWaebRlwfXFNeLp7B3xLfLt9U3_GgFaBb4KbgseLeouMjHaOZI9Gj6aQVZMnlSCWMpeVl_Saz52AncSePJ97n9-io6brpyunhKmVrD-0DLUEtoa2-rcxtz63pbvWwfPE9sauyFvQ0NxX3QXd8-Fz4vfjauQi6dXquuwZ7DjtIO988Xb3pvou-tL9z_6_

I put some thought into it but not a whole lot so don't yell at me if I did some dumb stuff (but feel free to point things out). I mainly just thought about what I wanted to do and grabbed things helped me do it. The skills I plain on using is Ice & Shock Nova with Freezing Pulse or some other Int projectile skill for longer range stuff or single targets. Because the Novas are my main skills I went for AoE radius and a few increase mana and reduced mana cost to allow more spam. Because have a bad habit of dying and because the Novas need me to be in the center of things I wanted to be tanky so I picked up stuff for blocking, increased resists, life, and energy shield.

Updated with some changes: http://www.pathofexile.com/passive-skill-tree/AAAAAgUBAnEEswVbDPcQaRmFGjIaOBpsHNwdFB6UJCUkiySqKU8snCymLR8wlzNWNuk3ZjeDOYo62DvhPAU8LT0PPV9Bh0NjRKtGcUbXTdhPfVFgUlNVrlZKWPVdxl6fYG1mnm0ZcH1xTXi6ewd8S3y7fVN_xoBWgW-Cm4LHi3qLjIx2jmSPRo-mkFWTJ5UElSCaz52AncSePJ97n9-io6brpyunhKmVrD-vm7QMtoa2-rcxtz63pcHzxPbGrtDQ3FfdBd3z4XPi9-Nq5CLquuwZ7DjtIO988Xb3pvou-tL9z_6_

I messed around with it a bit to try and get some cold damage at the cost of a bit of AoE range and a few other things. I am no longer using Shock Nova but Ice Nova is still one of my main skills. My other main skill is going to be Freezing Pulse. Thats why I went for some cold damage because my two main skills are cold (don't worry I keep some other element skills on for other types of damage).

Changed again: http://www.pathofexile.com/passive-skill-tree/AAAAAgUBAnEEswVbDPcQaRdUGYUaMho4Gmwc3B0UHpQigSQlJIskqilPLJwspi0fMJczVjbpN2Y3gzmKOtg74TwFPC09Dz1fQYdDY0SrRnFG103YT31RYFJTVa5WSlj1XcZen2BtZp5tGXB9cU14unsHfEt8u31Tf8aAVoFvgpuCx4t6i4yMdo48j0aPppBVkyeVBJUgms-dgJ3Enjyfe5_foqOm66crp4Splaw_r5u0DLaGtzG3PrelwfPE9sau0NDcV90F3fPhc-L342rkIuq67BnsOO0g73zxdvou-tL9z_6_

Removed crit for more cold damage.

where to go next...

What skills are you using and how are you using them?


sorry i intended to fraps a bit and show you but having issues reducing the video size...anywho.


main attack is Ethereal Knives.  its a spell that does physical damage...this distinction is very important in why its such an epic skill and should get nerfed.

supports:

-added fire (adds % of physical dmg to fire)
-Faster Projectiles (adds 10% dmg + faster and increased distance)
-mana leech
*eventually i will have something with 5 links and can choose what to put next.

secondary(a)  attack is fire trap, no supports currently

secondary(b) attack is a spell totem with freeze pulse + greater multi-projectile + added cold dmg + knockback (i switch out this 3rd support with a few others depending on situation).

secondary(c) attack is viper strike, i use this with yellow/bosses and regen mobs.

secondary(d) attack is frenzy (13% quality), depending on map and how safe it is i may try to keep my frenzy charged


curse = enfeeble (14% quality).  essentially removes 1/3 of a mobs dmg and 40%+ nerf to their crit change/dmg

i also have vulnerability and temporal chains leveled up to switch out from time to time.


Aura(s)
-Hatred (adds percent of phys dmg as cold dmg)
-Grace  (adds evasion)
*-also have clarity leveled up but dont need it due to my 27/s+ mana regen from gear/passives

playstyle:

i curse, trap, kite, and pop ethereal knives as much as i can.  thorw totems around if need be but i hate the slow animation to drop them thats way too long to be still.  i currently have +25% speed so i am extremely mobile.

with trash mobs i can usually just throw a trap, stand and throw EK until they are done...but packs of rares, especially if they are fast...require kiting.

this is what i would currently call my "A" gear when i just want to live and dont care about magic find %.
http://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/136804

its very fun, fast playstyle i would reccomend it for sure.  just know EK seems OP and i would expect somehtign to change with this gem/support combo its just too synergistic, when i have 4 frenzy charges the DPS on EK is right around 2000 (lvl 65) with a few hundred of that coming as cold dmg  (via Hatred aura) so they are often cold or frozen on hit :)

Nice write up.  :)

Having seen Scorp in action I can tell ya "mobile" is an understatement, he is like a chihuahua on meth...at least compared to my slow ass Templar. Looks like a fun build though and he sure as heck makes it work, op or not.

Maybe some casting speed nodes? There aren't many around you so it might not be worth it if you can't stack it a bunch. Also how do you do on life? You can never have too much life in HC so you can always pick up some more life nodes.

yes cast speed will come, EK costs a lot of mana with those supports so you dont spam it really.  it is super powerful though so you dont need to spam it a few pops here and there pretty much takes care of things.  becasue of this, you can get by on low mana but high mana regen.

Well as I said you can never have too much life in HC. In default you make a mistake and learn not to do what you did before. In HC you make a mistake you die and break your keyboard and then go cry yourself to sleep.

The two main skills you use have fire damage so you could do some increased fire damage.

EK costs a lot of mana with those supports so you dont spam it really.

Maybe reduced mana cost? There are only two spots even close to you and you spend points to get  to both of them so I'm not sure if it would be worth it.

Also I read that projectile speed basically increases EK's range so maybe some points into that? From the wiki: "Projectile Speed: Projectile Speed will greatly increase the average distance that Ethereal Knives projectiles travel before they fade, effectively increasing the maximum range of the spell." http://en.pathofexilewiki.com/wiki/Ethereal_Knives#Skill_Functions_and_Interactions

well firetrap is more for the fire DoT and something i can lob at stationary targets easy, but not something i want to waste points on.  my EK is doing fire due to (added fire damage) gem but its the projectile-phys/spell dmg that i want to focus on

hatred and added fire damage gem all add a % based off your physical damage...so that is the place to focus on since adding phys/projectile damage will increase both hatred and added fire effects.

added projectile speed is a support gem i already use with EK, probably the #1 support next to added fire that you should put with it.
