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 :)


Here are my suggestions:
Get a crown with the 15% arcane cloak enchant
Get Omeyocan boots with the 70% mana enchant
Buy a pile of Divines and roll anything that isn't within ~95% of max on the mods that are important.
Get all gems to 21, with quality where needed, either by play or buy them on the market. In some cases alternate quality gems might also be useful.
30/30 Gloves
Healthy Mind jewel due north of the start
Find a way to get Anima Stone in and add Lightning Golem if you want more damage, you can take 3 nodes out of the circle of life and get a jewel slot to the left of The Agnostic.
Look to replace the large cluster with one that has 3 notables.
Use Betrayal to get more quality on flasks and other gear.

Overall, it's not a tanky build so you can expect to die somewhat regularly, even with additional investment, if you want to run T16 maps with any unfavorable mods. If you want to get another level or two the best way I found is to buy T15 Beachhead maps and run those, or run T14 maps but skip the rituals. Beachheads take time but don't really cost much, if anything, as you will pull in ancient orbs which can be sold to cover the cost. Check your loot filter before running them, you will want to collect a variety of currency shards in the main arena since they are grouped for easy pickup. Only pick up valuable ones, ancient and exalt, in the main map area.
How important is are essence extraction and mana flask nodes? Could I easily get rid of these to allocate elsewhere? Only thing I see is I would lose a bit of mana regen.

If your mana regen can take the hit, yes you can remove them.

My mana regen is 3.6K+ without and 3.8K with. I did add about 200 life and 150 mana taking the jewel socket near the agnostic.
SO I hit level 96 and spent the last two days doing brutally hard content and...I think this build has hit it's ceiling. Simulacrum is too hard, T16 100% Delirious Maps are too hard, the Maven is outright bullshit etc etc etc

I'd like to thank Enki for making my favorite version of this build yet (playing since 2014) and I'm off to greener pastures in the world of trapping!
Do people usually sub take out Orb of Storms once you can run all the golems and righteous fire - sigil of power?

I haven't tried 100% delirious t16 maps yet, (kinda want to wait till I have enough alt orbs to roll good watchstones) but I've cleared all other content.
With substantially less powerful gear than I'm wearing now.

Not sure when I took OoS out, but sure, that sounds like a good timing. One thing to consider is if you're proccing EO enough with just Arc. If you feel like you don't, take a look at Wordermostfoul's character, I believe he still runs OoS.

He just respecced into a Necro
Indeed. I am still running Storm Brand to apply curses and keep up EO. I honestly don't know how people do that with just Arc, I've noticed it rarely procs while I'm mapping now that I've lost the extra crit chance from Ice Golem, passive tree, and my second weapon.

Lost 200k dps when swapping to the cluster jewels. What on earth are they good for?
