Things to keep in mind whilst playing this build:
  • Not wasting Runes and Runic Power are by far the most important things for this build.
  • Floating around 50 Runic Power is common and is not bad and you should not be looking to instantly spend it unless you have used cooldowns.
  • Dumping resources during Pillar of Frost is the most valuable time to do it. You preferably want to use Empower Rune Weapon during Pillar of Frost.
