Really appreciate all the hard work and am looking forward to trying out this build.

One question, Ethereal Knives is our main skill, yet we can't actually pick that up as a reward from Enemy at the Gate as a witch. That's only available to the Shadow class. Am I missing something?

Thanks again!
Oh crap wmbirdsall!

That's my mistake. It's a purchase, not a reward. Oops! Thanks for letting me know. It's fixed now.

Thanks for your kind words and appreciation. When people take the time to be so kind it means a lot. Thank you.

Where approximately do you need to keep your mouse in order to cast AW on the lingering blades? I somehow have a really hard time casting AW. At the start of the zones I have to hold down attack for 6-7 attacks only to get 2 or 3 AW. And fighting against bosses I have troubles keeping up my AW because I aim for the boss to curse him but somehow don'T spawn enough AW
Hey Flouyd!

If you're using Spellslinger, you don't have to aim at all. The skill will do all the summoning for you. At the beginning of a level it's kind of annoying to have to summon all your AWs but it comes. Every cast of Kinetic Blast will summon one AW.

Try not aiming and see if gameplay improves for you.

That being said, I play on console. Aiming is kind auto. Maybe just focus on Culling Strike. Just aim where you want Culling Strike to hit.

Hey, looking to try this build as league starter on ps as soon as league starts. Have one question I ain't it worth spending to 2 points to get spiritual aid? As we pick a lot of minion passive point on the way it will help us with hp etc?
Hey RGL_Lucas!

If you're still going ahead with this build, the reason that I opted out of the two nodes to Spiritual Aid is that we don't really have space to improve either Kinetic Blast or our lingering blades skill. So I put the nodes elsewhere. If you modify the build to put more damage on KBl or EK, go for it. But I find the Spiritual Aid not really worth the two-point investment. That's totally subjective though.

Great question.

So I know that minions don't benefit from non-minion damage mods, but what about '% increased damage with poison' on a jewel? Does poison get tagged as having come from a minion and therefore not count?
Hey Skyllus!

Good question and hoping ;). The same thing applies, unfortunately. Increasing poison damage only increases YOUR poison damage. The only damage you deal is the measly amount with Kinetic Blast and Ethereal Knives.

The reason that Withering Presence and Void Beacon improve our minion damage is that we are not increasing our own team's damage, but instead making the enemies more vulnerable to the damage our team does.

I hope that doesn't confuse things more.

So how exactly do i get to have both spellslingers with a 6L and the bladefall + culling and also blasphemy temporal chains. I got to pick all the reduced mana reserved and there is no way, not enough mana pool
Dang Vibrante!

Nice. You got a Tabula. Sweeeeeet. When a character levels up it naturally gains some mana. There are also some mana nodes that increase our maximum mana in the provided tree. So when it comes to mana reservation, levelling up and maximum mana nodes are pretty important. Also, I forget where I said it, but you won't be able to reserve both Spellslingers and the blasphemy until the Spellslinger gems are level 17.

thanks, read it after i posted :P also what are some good annoints for this build?
Hey Wrecker...nice build as always. So, I get not taking spiritual aid to scale EK damage. How does profane bloom scale though? Is there a benefit to spiritual aid there, or do the curse pops scale on minion damage if minions land the killing blow?

Hey Vibrante :)

Honestly, any notable you want that you can't reach. Go cheap until you get an amazing amulet and some gold oils. Then be picky with life or damage. Outside of the great life notables that all cost some gold, I like Hexmaster. Good defence and offence wrapped into one.

Hey MalaikatMaut :)

Cool. I'm glad that makes sense. With Profane Bloom, it doesn't matter if it's us or our minions that kill the cursed enemy. All that matter is that the enemy is cursed and that they die. The damage of their explosion is based on the enemy's max life. The explosion has nothing to do with our stats.

So we curse. Our Minions kill. The explosion damage is based on the enemy's life.

Hey Everyone!

I've made the example video and linked it in the guide in a couple of places. Here's 3.13's gameplay example video if it still interests you.
