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


Hello everyone, is there any reason not to introduce the new shapper of storms ancestry? If so, which one would you remove to introduce this? Thank you
How do you think this will perform for mapping, bossing and ritual in 3.13? My only concern is it doesn't have enough fire power/defence when I look at the build but I could be wrong? I'm comparing this to cold slinger occultist and totem builds right now to determine which I play this league as I'm so unsure :/

Hello, I've tried this back when Pledge of hand was recommended and I remembered that we lack boos damage. Now with 3.13 changes to Ele ascendancy how's the boss damage? because I love Arc and I don't want to do anther build for quick bossing like I do every league lol.


You can watch my character. With such equipment, the damage to bosses starting from red cards is very weak, I don't know what to do.

From the guide:
‣ Get Hextouch in Highgate and link it to Wave of Conviction
‣ Get Conductivity in Sarn Encampment and link it to Wave of Conviction

I have this problem, i cant link Hextouch & Conductivity with Wave of Conviction together.
If i do this, i cant use Conductivity, it says that i cant cast the spell.

That's an easy fix there:
Hextouch makes your Wave of Conviction apply Conductivity. The whole purpose of those links are that you can apply Wave of Conviction AND the curse in one cast :)


Thanks for the reply.
So that means, if i cast Wave of Conviction it auto casts the conductivity?
Since Conductivity is a spell on its own, kinda confusing haha.
Hey guys, i have 3.6k mana pool and only 360-420 mana regen and can't sustain mana at all, especially when getting any damage from monsters.

Here's my PoB: https://pastebin.com/cS20gjvX

Enki's PoB says he has 5+kmana pool and 1200 mana regen, i got all unique jewels and just can't get it why i have mana regen at 1/10 to mana pool and Enki's pob has double that amount at 1/5 mana regen to his 5k mana pool.

Please help me out!

Well, let's take a closer look at Hextouch:

It says:
  • "must support both a skill that hits ennemies" that's our Wave of Conviction
  • "and a hex curse skill" obviously, that's Conductivity
  • "when ennemies are hit by the other skill" means that Wave of Conviction first has to touch a mob, which implies that you've used that skill
  • "[then] the hex will be applied" ergo yup, it's the support gem that casts Conductivity!


Interesting (if a bit moot) point: if there's no mob in front of you, your Wave of Conviction hits nothing, then Hextouch doesn't bother to apply the curse ^^

Of course, the wiki page for Hextouch will be more detailed and precise ;) In particular, it states that the curse is applied to each mob touched by the Wave, and not "in an area"… which makes me wonder: in that case, do I spend the mana cost of Conductivity once per mob? That's what seems "logical" to me, if a bit costly… but again, with this build, costly doesn't always mean bad. So, right off the top of my head, I don't know X-)

_________________________________________________________________________

Also, as a note for Enki: in the leveling section, you don't talk about ditching Orb of Storms. It appears neither in the detailed acts descriptions, nor in the tl;dr sub-section.

I think I got rid of Orb of Storms just after killing Gravicius, since Sigil of Power was the only reward from Maramoa that made sense… or between that time and the overhaul that comes after Siosa's quest. Sorry for the imprecision, I'm still a bit new to the game ^^

I do realize the amount of work it must be to try out the new build orientation in a private league, check a few options, then edit your guide. Thank you for sharing so much with us! And btw, I loved the Heist version of the build: it was so fun for being, precisely, counter-intuitive. It was particularly nice leveling that tree as a new player <3

You arent using Arcane Cloak, which procs a high level arcane surge, which gives you a lot of regen.

Thanks gourgou!
It was all kinda confusing, appreciate the help and effort!
Hey I was wondering what the viability of going 1h/shield instead of dw is? Specifically looking at Magna Eclipse. I'm just worried this build will have survability issues in 10 boss maven
