do we use vaal arc in 3.14 since it got bufed ?


No, because Vaal Arc dont uses Mana, its using souls. And so you dont get any Damage from Arcmage support and with EO we dont shock. So, no.


I'm mainly wondering is there a downside to having a Vaal arc over a normal one?
There's still the lucky buff it provides.
This is the first time Enki mentioned explicitly not using it.

@MC_Grinda A shorter answer: Yes it's effectively a more multiplier, because it affects the enemy and therefore doesn't get calculated on our damage, but rather on what they take.
Only at level 71 and just started mapping but so far the build feels good. Didn't buy any gear and went through acts without the full compliment of gems and it still worked. The added defensive layers feel good.

I might give a try to a Rumi's instead of a Jade and no Glancing Blows later to see how that feels.

This is another solid beginner build and should take anyone into maps if they take the time to follow it.
Hey, I have a question. I have a problem with lack of dps while levelling. I use 4l arc with unleash, controlled destro and archmage but I lack dps to do league content.

Are they simply out of tune or am I doing something wrong? I invest all my points in life, mana and just a tiny bit of spell crit, as per pob

I struggle immensely and I don't understand what am I doing wrong.
Nothing here

League content is hard, there is so many mobs that overwhelm you in a small area and you can almost never stand still to cast

I struggle a lot with it in low tier maps as well

A trivial question:

Just thought I'd give this league a go after a long layoff.

Is this still a "witch" build, ie choosing starting character Witch.

I was reading the levelling & was seeing ascendancies I'm not used to - I thought this was based on a Nec accendancy?

Its Elemantlist now, but starting class is still witch
Why is this using Mind Drinker annointment? Doesn't that only provide mana leech on attack damage, making it useless for this build?
Hello, I'm following your guide and i'm block about the strenght based item like the "increased duration" gem and "stone golem" they both need approximately 55 strenght and i don't know where you get it from. i finished the act 3 already and can't add the "increased duration" gem and i'm not even near to be able to. i only have 29 strenght.
i'm in the new league ultimatum maybe there were some kind of change ? but i don't really know i'm kinda new.

There's a +30 str node in the passive tree "might" you can take, and you can craft some on gear while you're still levelling.

Once you get to gearing in maps, atziri's foible and pure talent should solve it from there on out.

It's a cheap annointment that gives a lot of mana, and mana sustain during mapping. You'll switch at some point to a more expensive one.
Hey, just stumbled across your build and am wanting to try it but I am very new and kind of confused about a few things. Namely, the first bit is early you say to buy a second wand, what I couldn't figure out is what kind of wand I'm buying. Do sockets matter? Does rarity matter? Thanks in advance for answering a silly noobish question.
