I made a witch EK witch following this guide and using Quillrain + that quiver (good call btw, the projectile speed is amazing and I never would have thought of it). However, I rushed for the 25 mana per kill nodes to the left instead of heading straight for the shadow tree and I can spam as much as I want as long as there are multiple mobs. I might spec out of it once I can use mana leech.

edit: I should mention that killing with bear traps still leeches the mana to the trap and not to you. EK spamming works wonders though.

Following this build mostly at lvl 49, got EB very early on and now i'm struggling a tiny bit because I dont have a 5l/6l chest.
Is there anyone who has the mechanics of how EK scales with added plain phys dmg and % phys dmg, when using Added Fire Damage and Hatred? I am unsure how I actually get higher DPS, except getting faster cast speed.
Hey man, like how detailed the guide is. I would like some advice on early early game. Should I use something else aside from EK to level at first or what? Cause mana problems are prominent since the beginning and I dont have any way to counter that.

What links with ur EK are u using? If you check out my current set of gear, I got to level 77 pretty easily with just a 4L boots for EK.

Good point, considering the number of qsns i've gotten regarding early game gameplay, I'll add in a section regarding early game gameplay once I get back from uni!

Added plain phys damage on gear doesn't add to EK damage. %physical damage on anything except weapons is global and applies to EK dps. That mod on weapons doesn't apply to EK dps. Not sure if that answers ur question

Exactly, thanks! How about Attack Speed %? You have taken a point of it in your tree but I am unsure how it affects EK.

Attack speed % doesn't affect EK at all. I took it for the easy access to the projectile damage nodes as well as the much needed dex for Bear Trap. I probably should put that in the guide as well
