POE 3.6 Occultist Ice Nova Build For Detailed Guide

POE 3.6 Occultist Ice Nova Build

3.6 Synthesis Patch:
Due to the fact patch 3.6 brought many changes/adjustments to spells some will have an effect on this develop:
1) The total harm output on bosses is drastically enhanced, on account of the lowered curse immunity of bosses 66% (from 80%)
2) Ice Nova includes a slightly lowered harm, but practically nothing to concern about.
3) Ice Nova has a more rapidly cast time of 0.7 (from 0.8)
4) The crafted mod "x% non-chaos harm as extra chaos damage" is gone/omitted. You might take into account crafting "x% of cold damage as further chaos damage" as an alternative in your multi-crafted staff. 

Pros & Cons:
+ insane AoE harm output -> the whole screen explodes and shatters
+ utilizing a build with 4 courses (two offensive curses + 2 defensive curses)
+ fairly safe to play, because everything gets chilled/frozen
+ do all content in the game (as a consequence of "Void Beacon" even HoGM variable) 
+ funny, refreshing playstyle
