Ice Gauntlet & Rapier Build

For a quick and focused DPS build, the rapier is a good friend to the ice gauntlet. Remember that with this build it is all dependent on whether the rapier or the ice gauntlet will be the main weapon. For a more rapier-focused build, dump more points into Dexterity. Alternatively, for a more ice gauntlet-based build, focus more on Intelligence.
