‣ Keep Wave of Conviction at Level 1, we need it at that level later


Could anyone please explain this to me? I can't figure out why. The mana cost doesn't seem to go up drastically.

New to the game, so it's probably something simple I'm missing.

Wave of Conviction deals phys damage, so you'll get some reflect if the level is too high.

At level 1 the exposure debuff remains the same, and the damage is so low that it won't make a difference.

Why not Pledge of Hands in this mana oriented build?
It's a 7 link, makes arc more expensive for archmage and the stick itself grants a 100% increased mana and a 20% increased mana regen, not to mention the buffs you can get via staff nodes.

Is there anything I'm missing here?
Pledge of Hands seems way better than dual wand.


Greater spell echo doens't give any cast speed so it feels horrible and slow to play.

Is it really that bad?
Ah well..
Hello. This is my second league. In my first league, I played necro witch that can kill all endgame bosses with no problem. Should I use this build? There is a lot of bad comments about this build that can't handle endgame. Is this build for new players only?

You should play this build. Most of the negative comments are either small nitpickings, or are uninformed.

‣ Get Hextouch in Highgate


Hextouch support is not available to witch class.


It is available for all classes from Petarus and Vanja after The Eternal Nightmare.

Also, we use a trigger wand to cast Wave of Conviction -> Hextouch -> Conductivity.
Is this build viable for endgame? I'm at lv 37 and killing bosses seems way too slow.
Hey guys, does anyone know whether or not the support gem Elemental Army exposure counts towards Mastermind of Discord exposure granting the mana regen?

MoD doesn't seem to have anything to do with Exposure.

Looks endgame viable to me!

make sure you have your arc linked; personally for leveling I prefer using arc + unleash + archmage in a lifesprig

link your orb of storms to some damage supports as well (stand inside of orb of storms and storm sigil for bossfights, if you cast arc inside of orb of storms it will make orb of storms hit more often)

I picked up golems first for some buffs and meat shields because early on you should be doing plenty of damage without wave of conviction.

Make sure you have elemental overload allocated on passive tree for a huge damage boost and with MoM and a couple of mana nodes you should be really tanky in the early game.

You can look at my witch in my profile if you'd like, she's only level 46 atm but not having problems leveling at all.

Thanks for the answer. I will play. I'm in act 6 and doing well.
