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

I'm a new player and started the game with build 3.13
I play an PS5 - standartd league. Can I see the old version 3.13 somewhere?
I'm in act 4 now and don't know what to do, play from the beginning?

You can still use the level section. The Quests dont change, when you're playing first time poe. The gems changed a little bit, but not tooo much. Mainly the arc setup dont changed, so you can use this guide aswell. Maybe try a shild and remove the dualwilding skills.

Enkies Arc Witch since 3.07
Thanks for the update Enki! So do you suggest leveling with 2 wands/weapons rather than a wand and shield? I know endgame is the latter but I looked through the updates and still see the section about upgrading wand(s).

Thanks!

Any way i can just back to view 3.13 still?
using it on standard.


you could use the wayback machine and see if it has any snapshots of 3.13 version
Hi @ all,

I have a few Questions about that 3.14 Changes here:

1.) Why dropped vitality aura? Sure, its nerfed a bit, but the lifereg was very useful, isnt it? - for delving it was very good. Who will use it anyway?

2.) Why use shild and Block now? More survivabilty and less damage seems to be the main goal of enkies changes: Whithin the nerfs from trigger a socketed spell (8 sec cooldown) and wave of con Expo nerf the is some damage loss.
Will we be able to do enough boss damage still?

I did love vitality, especially for the trials and lab.

Thank you for your help. I saw that I would have to rebuild the passive tree a bit. (Now I'm lvl 43)
This is an expensive operation?

Enki's bulid is very good for a new player, I learned a lot from him.
I would like to stay with him, because I have not seen any other place where everything is written out step by step.

I think, meybe I will should start again next week - in a new league.
I am currently learning and I have seen that a lot of people recommend the standart league to start.

i checked that it only has snapshots of 3.12 and the spoilers dont work so cant expend the gear sections etc.

I'm an absolute noob but I was extremely surprised by the changes, I thought our survivability will take a hit because the nerfs and he will try to circumvent the dmg loss and the inconvenience of trigger a socketed spell nerfs, yet we get more survivability and way less dmg. in 3.13 on pob the perfect minmaxedend endgame version can give you 5.45mil total dps, 3.14 only 2.41mil, that's a %55 potential dmg loss. :(

if not for Enki and his perfect written guide, Id never touched this game. without exaggeration, I read near 100 guides and either they overcomplicate it or you don't understand what's going on from the lack of information. saying thank you cannot express how much I appreciate this guide, wish Im not poor to give back to you. eh.
