I wouldnt suggest this build for first character, you want to have some gear waiting for ES phase. Especially on HC.

Levelling guide

Use Freezing pulse in early game, change to dagger above 20 when you manage to get a decent dagger, Mightflay op! Grab health nodes in early game from the shadow tree. Respec to CI at around Merciless ledge, you want to have something like ~300ES chest, ~200ES helmet and ~300ES Shield waiting.

If you are using Lightning Strike, grab the lightning damage node on shadow tree.

Good items to have:

EYE OF CHAUYLA, a must have

Maligaros virtuosity, very good dps boost

Sin treks are decent boots for very very good price.
