You can start with spark at Level 1! Until you reach Arc at Level 12.

When you reach Ancestral Bond in tree you will need to swap Faster Casting Support for Spell Totem Support UNTIL you can Equip Soul Mantle at Level 49.

Immortal Call No longer makes you immune to physical damage for a duration.
Base duration is now 1 second at all gem levels (from 0.4 seconds).
Now has an instant cast time (from 0.85 seconds).
Now causes you to take 25% less elemental damage and 25% less physical damage at gem level 1, with the values growing based on the gem level, up to 34% less elemental damage and 35% less physical damage at gem level 20.

Why Arcane Surge level 10?
- Arcane Surge needs mana spent to be triggered, level 10 is good for decent mana spent, this Curse Combo Provides you with extra Spell Damage / Cast Speed

Ascendancy - Hierophant
1. Pursuit Of Faith (This node gives you +1 to maximum Totems and loads of Damage)
2. Ritual Of Awakening (This node Gives you 50% Inc Totem Placement Speed)
3. Divine Guidance (This node gives you Maximum Mana and another 10% beyond "MOM" Damage taken as mana before Life)
4. Sanctuary Of Thought (This node gives you alot of Reduced Mana cost of skills and loads of Energy Shield)

Jewels/Abyss Jewels
You want to look for:
- ​x% Increased Spell Damage
- x% Increased Maximum Life
- x% Increased Crit chance
- x% Increased Cast Speed
- x% Increased Totem Damage
- x% Increased Critical Chance/Multiplier

- Soul of Arakaali

You can start use arc totems at lvl 12.

Just pick a spell totem linked with arc.
If you got some leveling gear you could just follow the gem setup in the guide.

As soon you reach level 49 you can equip Soul mantle witch provides you with spell totem support.

Hi, I got Sanctuary of Thought recently.

Due to the effect of that node, I can use spells without Mana cost while on Full Energy Shield.

Therefore Arcane Surge does not grant a buff (because Mana cost of Conductivity is zero.)

It's different from your video clip.

Why does it happen?
Why do you use lvl 12 arc, lvl 8 added lightning, and lvl 8 crit strikes?

Nice build im just curious about the belt.
wich one you recommend?

Its the req level when you can start using the gems, not set level.
You want all your main skill gems at lvl 20.

Best option is a Stygian Vise belt with resistance and high life for this build.
