[3.12] Enki's Arc Witch - a beginner & SSF-friendly Lightning Caster NEW UPDATE

About EO and controlled destruction, maybe that Liquid inspiration (from medium cluster jewel: flask effect duration, or small cluster jewel: increased max mana) can make up the crit chance, as you have a 25% chance to get a power charge when using a mana flask.
I haven't tested it (not yet interested in cluster jewels), but if you can get 2 or 3 power charges without it coming at the cost of abusing your mana flask charges, they make up for the controlled destruction.

So if you feel like testing it, post your findings here! :P
I know the current build doesn’t spec into it, but if you take the jewel socket south of Scion and socket The Blue Nightmare, you get:
- 5% lightning damage as extra chaos damage
- 28% chance to gain a power charge on kill
- 9% spell block

If you add a ring or gloves with Assassins Mark corruption, you can easily maintain power charges on trash as well as bosses. Granted, you likely don’t need the extra damage on trash.
I strongly recommend avoiding all tools that price check. There have been several reported bans for breaching the ToS, and I suspect this is the cause.

Thanks, that's really good to know. I would take it even without the power charges since they do nothing for boss DPS and the other two are so good anyway.
Ah! I just remembered the damn boot enchantment. It's so important, don't be like me and forget to make it a priority! (70% increased mana regen)

Hey guys, back with some new info!

First of all, mark of the shaper+mark of the elder do massive damages for us. don't exactly know how it works but I went from struggling to melting stuff. Not a good option on SSF I guess, but still good to know.

Alternate quality arc is great for us! we chain much more, so even faster clearing and minimal boss dmg drop. Desecrate alternative quality sadly not doing much for us.

Here is a heist setup for this build!

1. Get ball ligthtning instead of sigil

2. get at least 2 quicksilver pots, a mana pot and a quartz flask and just bolt on the way back. We can escape fine with lockdown if you plan your route, specially if your flamedash is 20/20 and it's linked to second wind.


Not sure yet if I want to spec out of desecrate or not for this build. Will keep you updated!



PoB only evaluates the 5% lighting as extra chaos as a 4% DPS increase, which is not the best for 5 skill points. Even with the resists and block chance on top of that. Power charge on kill is interesting for clearing, but I find this build has plenty of trash clear without power charges.
Did you guys see some of the new Alternate gems for Arc? @.@

one of them has 0-20% extra chain range

and another gets 10% increased damage for EACH time it Arcs O.O

These are based on the quality

can i use the Agnostic node with this build or it will be too much for my mana regen to sustain ?


Also can this build get me to A8 without cluster jewels ?

I want to ask at act4 after killing Daresso, dont level up areo of effect too?
With regards to Elemental Overload, and assuming you have 1% crit base because you're not using any crit on gear and are using the Foible, then why not do the following:

1) Pick up the two 20% spell crit nodes in the Witch area instead of the +10 str/int nodes to keep the tree linked. This'll take your crit from 1% to 3%.

2) Get a shield with 90%+ crit on it. This will boost from you from 3% to 7.5%.

3) When you use a Thread of Hope to get Spiritual Aid, also get Whirling Barrier and Sanctuary. As far as I'm aware, the Power Charge on Block from Whirling Barrier isn't specific to staves, and the extra block on Sanctuary helps proc it and adds defence. Once you add in Power Charges you'll go up to 13.5% crit chance, which should be enough to keep EO up constantly.

You could throw in Rumi's also for extra defence and extra up-time on power charges.
