Hi@ all,
I am very frustrated. I've played enkies Arc Witch since 3.7 and never made it fine in the Endgame...

Today I tried Sirius AWL 5. First Sirius with this Setup in the league. Damage was fine, I think. But I cant see him in the last phase. I ALLWAYS die at the tripple beam... and I flamedash around like crazy.
It was the same in all the last leagues. It feels like I am stupid.
I cant see him, I die at tripple beam. Have watched a lots of Video guides, I am an 39 year old semiprofessional esportler. I am not playing with nose or mouth. I have checked my settings, the zoom. Its all fine.
Who did Sirius with this build, and how do you dodge tripple beam and move in last phase?
Now once again sirius portals are gone, and a lots of maps are left to force him again. In all last leagues I struggelt here amd stopped playing poe. So my thoughts are: Is my Equip maybe allways not good enough? Is this build not made for Sirius? I dont know... Can someone check my char, pls?


I hate to break it to you, the sirus fight is mostly mechanical. It doesn't really matter what you're playing (Although I'm sure some builds have an easier time than others). Learn when you can do damage to him and when it's better to let him do his things. Try to stay close, that way you only need movement skills when he teleports away and when the audio 'die die die' plays (and maybe when the maze is unlucky). Basically try to find a pattern where you don't panic flame dash all the time and can use it when you need to only.
This league I've done Sirus probably about 25-30 times, died 3 times total so far. Twice was me dashing forward too soon into his orb (so totally my fault) and once I got caught by the 'die die die' beam because I mispositioned.

Suggestions for your gear:
Look to upgrade both your weapons with more mana.
Get gloves with mana.
Get a relevant Watcher's eye. (personally I like the increased mana recovery rate)
For the remaining jewel slot: Healthy mind, anima stone or a jewel with both life and mana.
See if the agnostic works for you.
Idk your budget, but after this you can also look into cluster jewels and a relevant helmet enchant.


Thanks a lot for your description. So I need to practise this, hmmm. And I will swap to a jew with the corrupted blood mod...
Yeahs, there are still some items to upgrade. I have 1200 ES, I think the agnostic will no help me, I would lose 1/5 buffer. I have only 4k life.

Unless you are doing a swap you don't have a Corrupted Blood cannot be inflicted on you jewel - having one during the Sirus fight is essential. Without that jewel the fight is just so much more difficult and borderline impossible. You should also get The Agnostic, it will give you a ton of life regen.

Thx a lot! corrupted Blood is a very good point! Maybe it was the same Problem all the last tries... -_-

I think you should try running The Agnostic. 1200 ES doesn't strike me as that much and your effective life pool with Mind Over Matter is much greater than 4k. The Elementalist I am using, which does differ from your build substantially, only has 2.2 life but with The Agnostic and a Corrupted Blood jewel Sirus A8 is quite doable.
Anyone that has used this build how far have u went into the delve before u hit the builds wall?


Torrent's is absolutely bonkers for this build. I got lucky and dropped a scroll in t16 beachhead, I swapped it out with my high resist belt and ran a t16 map with about 40/40/75/9 resists lol, things died before they could even touch me basically.

Now I was wondering if it would be worth keeping it and swapping out Omeyocan for boots with resists to cap them and tailwind/onslaught, possibly elusive if currency allows me to

Current gear as follows



The 18% mana loss from Omeyocan is a big hit, but then I could apply small band aid in form of catalysed Cerulean ring with resists to replace my sapphire ring.

What do you guys think ? Yay or nay

Haven't really delved much this league, currentlly at depth 353. But a few league ago (I admit, bit of a different build, so it might not compare), I really hitted a wall at around 650.

I'm not trying to shoot your idea immediatly, but what exactly is so good about the belt for us?
I can't see your characters, so I have to ask: are you running the agnostic?
Because the belt basically gives us a lot of action speed (Which is really good, don't get me wrong) and more uptime on arcane cloak. And life recovery might be useful?
It costs us like you mentioned omeyocans probably since resses need to be fixed, mana/mana recovery rate and life on belt, which feels pretty huge. And if you're running the agnostic, I'm not sure the life recovery adds that much.
I'm a bit worried about not fully benefiting from the increased action speed, because of possible mana problems then.
Thanks for this Guide, it took me to lvl 88 and explained everything very well. Im just wondering about the chaos resistance, why isnt it important? I tried to get as much as i can on any Gear. Can i change that for life and mana? Im still dying fast,i dont loose life at all, or it happens within a second. Maybe its my Playstyle ^^ Im using CoD,The Crown and the Ring,ungil and pure talent.about 4k Life and 5k mana
Anyway, thanks again to show me the Game :) Im starting to feel ready for more complex builds.

Your points are all valid,

I purely felt that the action/cast speed it gives felt really good, damage felt way better too which was probably to do with cast speed and cloak uptime, I did manage to sustain mana as I unspecd from agnostic, although I didn't perform extensive tests, I'll give it couple more runs to see how that goes,

Honestly just looking for ideas how to run this build in more interesting way, experimenting.
Hello,

I am pretty new to POE and followed this guide.
I cleared almost everything pretty easily until now. I am doing T14-T16 map but I die too often and feel that my dps is a bit too low.

Do you have any advice about my gear or tree that might help me?
I have around 17EX right now.

Maybe I am just a noob :)

Hi, first of all, i follow from a long time now and thanks for all the work u have done !

But here i have a little problem with the playstyle, i died A LOT cause of the mobility. i'm a lot like stun, then i take damage, then i get oom, then i can't evade then i die, i think the past days i took 15 deads, have u some advice ? it's beacause i don't know how to link item and all my gear but there's my pob : https://pastebin.com/6zC3RgA8
TY for build enki, my gear and damage is insane and i can clear pretty much all content. over 10mill DPS in POB and can tank a8 sirus beam with arcane cloak up. TY For all the fun this ritual league, my first league playing! I think i hit mirror tier. https://pastebin.com/439uftN7
