[3.14] Enki's Arc Witch - a beginner friendly Lightning Caster

Seems we'll get a replica for the Atziri's Foible, which many use for this build. I think the original is definitely the better variant for our build however.

So what are the opinions on Crackling Lance? Do you think it will be using most of the Arc playstyle?
The Crackling Lance wasn't very promising, it was shown with Inc AoE Support and who knows what other AoE sources and for that the coverage was just pretty bad. Possibly good for single target, but won't come close to Arc in terms of clearing.

Seesms they will be lowering the offering effect form misstress of sacrifice, does that affects us much?
or for us the only thing that matter is that offering skills also affect us the value is not important.
Can someone give me an honest non bias opinion on how this build did last league? I'm thinking of running it again, as Necro's continue to get hit, but was wondering, did this build get you to end-game?

Judging by the amount of pages, I would have think it did okay, otherwise it would have much less popularity. But want some opinions on those who ran it and how far they got using this exact build guide..

thanks!

I got pretty far with the build, gear in my profile and poe ninja link in description of video. Just a demonstration of sirus a8. Idk if it's a fair comparison though cuz I literally crafted all my gear close to perfection cuz harvest was a bit broken.

without running the following map mods:
- cannot regen life/mana
- 60% less recovery rate
- temporal chains
- elemental reflect

i was able to do:
- all maps (except HoGM, and racecourse map with the boss that casts reflect) ezpz
- 100% delirious T16 map with beyond (took me a while and some deaths, not deathless. but that could be just me, not the build)
- shaper/elder/uber elder/guardians
- delirium erm.. the 300 splinter thingey

i did A8 sirus 6 times: 2 deathless, lost all portals for 2

delved to about 250 depth no issue, had no motivation to go deeper. didn't manage to encounter Aul so unable to comment on that

i did cyclone in legion, summoner-cylone-cwc shenigans in metamorph, lacerate in delirium.
i'd say this build ranks amongst one of my most loved build in terms of... everything.

as i've posted before:
- arc is fire and forget, auto-seeking and chains. major QoL
- Mana serves as offensive and defensive with archmage, arcane cloak, MoM, Agnostic, and allows you to ignore life rolls on gear (thus making gear alot cheaper in trade league)
- minimum skills. 1 dmg skill, 1 curse setup, 1 movement skill, arcane cloak bind to left mouse click, and 2 vaal skills
- gearing was easy only because of harvest league. i'd imagine every build would face gearing issues after harvestcrafting is gone.

For me, I got to end game too.

Didn't manage to kill any Sirus, but tbh it's my fault for not knowing his mechanics (I didn't even know how to end his invulnerability phases :P )

I managed to kill elder/shaper pretty easily, uber elder/shaper I tried twice, and won once (but again, I didn't google the mechanics before, so I had to figure them out)

I ran lots of T16 maps with all kinds of mods/sextants (didn't go 100% delirious, but I did 60% OK) - ofc No life/mana regen and ele reflect were out of the question

I beat the Simulacrum

I did some metamorphs in lab easily too

I died a lot while doing this, but again, probably because I don't really know all the mechanics (and because my CPU is getting old, and POE asks soooooo much CPU :S )

Like the post above mentioned, the league was a bit broken with lots of awesome crafting available, but I didn't have the absolute godly-tier stuff others have (no jewel with corrupted blood cannot be inflicted to you, T2 offering on chest, T4 mana on chest, ....)
I'm also wondering if a better mind than myself can confirm whether the offerings need impacts us.

I love arc but felt stretched last league , although my gear wasn't optimal. Would love to give it another shot depending on how it sits after the nerf.

The less offering effect makes it quite a bit more squishy. Could even result in a mana problem, as we lose mana when being hit. No dps will be lost though imo.

If you felt squishy already last league playing this, i would recommend playing another starter like lancerate bleed or scourge arrow, etc. Quite a few have equal/better clearspeed with more single target dps, while still being tanky.
