[1.3] HvR's Crit Shockwave 3M Beyond Witch - Beginner Friendly - Atziri Down

Are you using anything as an off-attack like a trap? I looked at your gems, and I only really see the ice spear; you just leveling it like the other SwT?

Looks fun and I can't wait to give it a go this weekend!

Ice Spear is to generate the power charges I believe, as 2nd form has 600% increased crit chance, crits still count even with Ancestral Bond.

I didn't know they could still generate charges doing no damage; neat. What about using Assassin's Mark to generate charges? Would that be a big dps loss to use that as the curse of choice?

Totems can't have power charges, they just inherit the stats from you having them, so I don't think the curse would work as they're the ones killing.

If i remember correctly totems actually can have their own charges as well, but they will lose them as soon as you recast, making that not actually a valid option. Not 100% sure, don't quote me on it

hi, a guy on reddit said that SWT doesnt benfit from spell crit
http://www.reddit.com/r/pathofexile/comments/2e1706/shockwave_totem_info_some_might_find_usefull_in_12/


" yes it scales with spelldamage now, i was confused with the choice of words, so I tested it on TW Client.
Base Crit chance is now 5%
Still doesnt benefit from Spell Crit because the skill isnt tagged as "Spell"/ due to the mechanics of the skill itself. Hoped they would change it with the Spelldmg scaling part, but nope...
Crit will still scale of global crit chance/charges, but I dont recommend it (go for it if you want)"

whats up with that?
