This build is all but identical to an endgame Legacy of Dreams Frozen Orb build, using the plethora of dedicated legendaries for the skill to easily triumph over this Conquest. Your primary damage dynamic is found in the alternating Spectral Blade Spectral Blade attacks (to build up Arcane Power with The Shame of Delsere The Shame of Delsere and stack Triumvirate Triumvirate) and the devastating AoE spender Arcane Orb Arcane Orb Frozen Orb Frozen Orb. The remainder of your skills will serve as utility, with the two combos of Magic Weapon Magic Weapon Deflection Deflection plus Ashnagarr's Blood Bracer Ashnagarr's Blood Bracer and Storm Armor Storm Armor Power of the Storm Power of the Storm plus Halo of Karini Halo of Karini providing the bulk of your defenses. Black Hole Black Hole will be used to clump up large amounts of trash enemies to the benefit of your AoE damage dealer.

Try to strike a good balance of Cold and Area damage in your gear, since Frozen Orb builds benefit greatly from both. The weapon and offhand are the most vital inclusions: Unstable Scepter Unstable Scepter and Triumvirate Triumvirate scale the damage of your spender more than any other piece. Other very helpful pieces include Wizardspike Wizardspike (cubed), Halo of Karini Halo of Karini and The Shame of Delsere The Shame of Delsere. The remaining suggestions are merely helpful, but will not make or break the run.

Properly allocated Kanai's Cube choices and decently leveled legendary gems (most crucially, Legacy of Dreams Legacy of Dreams) will trivialize The Thrill Conquest. Do not neglect them.
