Hello there -

I really like the feel of this build, all the more so after reading everyone's comments and seeing your video!

Definitely thinking of trying it out, and wanted to thank you for all of your hard work and clear, concise, explanations of mechanics and such.

My only question: for a bit longer, I am still stuck with a potato of a computer... not strong at all in the graphics department. Do you find that this build is intensively needy when it comes to graphics? I made the mistake of trying a Wild Strike character and it made my PC cry LOL

Thanks again, and hope to try your build!

edit: I ask this because on other threads I have seen mention of FPS dips when creatures are summoned/spawned and wasn't sure if it applied in this case.


Thanks for the kind words! POE does a good job at decreasing graphic quality if things get too busy to keep the FPS up. But if you're computer can't handle Wild Strike (if Wild Strike was the problem for the tears), this build will be no better. You'll constantly be pumping out minions. It's by no means a graphics heavy build. Very rarely does this build ever need the graphics to drop to keep the FPS up. But in your special case, it won't be better than Wild Strike as far as I know.

It wouldn't take too much to test though. The Witch gets SRS almost right away in the game. You wouldn't need more than a few minutes to see if SRS is too much for your system.

If it is though, maybe try the Fire Trap build that I have linked at the bottom of this guide while you wait for your computer improvements. I know it's a totally different build idea, but I would guess that it's much lighter on the graphical load than my Super Slow Motion build.

Let me know how it goes! Thanks again for your kindness and feel free to ask as much as you like.

Thank you for the reply!

I will certainly take a look at your Fire Trap build as well, as I am always looking to try new things here and learn what I can (and there is a LOT to learn!)
Oh man, I was looking for something just like this. I have fibromyalgia and my hands hurt a lot after playing, so this build is a godsend! I'm definitely gonna try it, thank you
Just want to say this is a really cool build, I'm up to level 77 with it and it's been the most relaxed POE build I've played. Great league starter :)

I'm glad you found something that works for you! Just in case you skimmed through the "blah blah blah" at the beginning of the build, all the builds I will create over time will be geared towards easy play for folks like us. Let me know if you have any suggestions for this build or other build ideas.

I love your gear! You've done really well!
I find where I die the most with this build is the result of needing to stand still to cast our my SRS. Also, some good bonus damage from our build is from Flesh Offering and Elemental Equilibrium...

Sooooo to answer your question, just for those fights where the bosses just hit too hard, remove the Cast When Damage Taken gem for Flesh Offering and Ball Lightning. Assign those two skills to be comfortably self-casted. You will find you'll get SRS to 20 really quick so you can run around to survive better and Ball Lightning will allow for the sweet Elemental Equilibrium damage without getting hit.

Does that help? I think your setup is sweet. All builds have a hard time against certain kinds of bosses.

like u write i die to, even to offten when needing to stand still when casting srs when boss fight..( but its rly rare depends on mods maps )

about ur advice i notice faster burn hp bosses with this method so its great :)

btw i upgrade again my gear ( #% increased Minion Damage if you've used a Minion Skill Recently ) its great got so far 284% inc total dmg to minion ) wonder if its posible to stack need to test it so far added 18% with 1 jewel

and i think when i hit 10 more lvl it will be epic killing machine :) still wonder wher to put rest points cause ther is so many cool things

Forgot to mention any advice what Unique armor will be perfect ? ( anyway prices is so crazy and i think depends on luck it wil take me alot days to farm chaos ;p )

- I'm glad the suggestion helped.
- "Increased damage if you've used a minion skill recently" does stack.
- If you're looking for even more uniques that benefit this build, you'll be leaving the "theme of slow". Nothing wrong with that though. So if you're thinking about adding more uniques (don't forget about resists), think about Severed in Sleep, United in Dream, Queen's Decree, Queen's Escape, or Femurs of the Saints for weapons. Maybe Vis Mortis or Victario's Influence (for Hatred) for a chest. If you stick with a one handed weapon you could always use your extra points to head over to Necromantic Aegis (It'll be 6 nodes away from the tree I have in the guide). Then combine that with a sweet shield like Victario's Charity or Lycosidae.
