Early Leveling and Freezing Mechanics:
While leveling, it's not necessary to keep Hydrosphere frozen at all times. Unfrozen, it still deals cold damage upon hitting a target. You can recast it into a pack if needed. Alternatively, you can utilize a Freezing Pulse setup with the support of Ice Bite to achieve a reliable freezing chance, especially effective during leveling.

Ice Spear and Freezing Pulse Interactions:
For single target damage, casting Ice Spear on Hydrosphere will freeze it, creating a powerful stationary damage source. Ice Spear's second form has a high critical strike chance, which, when combined with piercing mechanics, guarantees hits on the frozen Hydrosphere. However, if you're not fond of Ice Spear, other options such as Freezing Pulse with added pierce support can provide an alternative solution.

Maximizing Hydrosphere Damage:
To achieve the highest damage output, cast and freeze the Hydrosphere simultaneously. This results in continuous pulsing and casting, effectively doubling your damage potential. Calculating your DPS involves combining hit DPS with cast rate times average hit damage.

Transitioning to Endgame and Boss Fights:
As you progress, you can incorporate Vortex into your build, placing it on your left click for incidental freezing while moving over the Hydrosphere. Against endgame bosses like Elder and Shaper, maintaining Hydrosphere's freeze status becomes crucial, but it's manageable with proper positioning.

Path of Building (PoB) Considerations:
The provided Path of Building (PoB) showcases both mid-endgame and early-endgame setups. Early on, focus on maximizing spell suppression and block mechanics with gear like Mist Wall. In mid-endgame, prioritize block and spell block chance to reduce incoming damage. Intensify is a recommended gem for its significant damage boost, particularly when combined with casting and freezing.
