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

Hey guys, can someone tell me what is the maximum achievable percent of "Damage taken from Mana before Life" mod on a character? How high can it be if everything is given?

Edit: just found the answer, it's around 65% (although higher with templar)

Played Arc Witch in the last league (also my first league), and switched to ED/C Trickster for Ultimatum. While the mapping feels smooth, I don't really like the mechanics (took me 92 levels to figure that out lol), and now I'm considering switching back to Arc.

Last league I never got to any real bosses, just barely managed to kill Atziri. How is Arc Witch for killing Sirius and other endgame bosses? ED feels bad for bossing as well, so if Arc is not great at it either I might have to look at something else, even though I really enjoyed playing Arc Witch.

im end game now so you can suss my gear out , its quiet good , ive just done awaken 7 sirus , died once cause i was basically bad at moving lol , , but other than that was reasonably smooth ,

tanked Minatour and don't have any issues with others once you work out that a few build mechanics IE once you work out your mana sustain / regen it all seems to fall into place, i wouldn't say it came easy but i did get there , now its really fun


on another note i suck at crafting , only good time i crafted well was Harvest , but wanna really have a crack at that belt on the first page

i have the base , but how do i craft that sick " Plague Girdle Styg Vise "

thanks in advance

Thanks for the well written and thought out rely @Dreagtion! I really appreciate it. I am new so I didn't even realize I could use bless orbs on the belt. I just upgraded my wep to something I think I will never upgrade again. I don't understand why that glove implicit is good. Is it because Arcane Cloak spends 65% of your mana?

EDIT: Could you explain how you crafted those gloves? I am completely new to crafting.


The gloves implicit is basically another form of mana sustain. Last league I pushed the build as far as i reasonably could and I was still happy with more mana sustain.
The 30% reduced mana sounds bad, but it's effect is relatively small, as it's additive with all the increases we have, not multiplicative.

The gloves I made are harder to get this league, since harvest crafting got nerved so much. The basic process still works, but finishing the craft with all useful stats will be a pain.

-Basically, get the glove base either with hunter (ilvl 85+) or warlord influence (ilvl 73+, but I'd still suggest 84+ to allow higher tier rolls on resses etc), or give it that influence.
-I'm going to assume for this that you got them with hunter influence:
Craft them with alt/aug (or any way you wish), till you get chance to unnerve on hit and a 2nd influenced mod (make sure you have just 2 influenced mods on the item).
-Then use a maven's orb on it to 50/50 elevate the chance to unnerve on hit to just unnerve on hit.
-If you miss the 50/50, see if you can sell it, or start from the top again.
-Then get a second pair for gloves, I'm going to assume these will be warlord influenced and craft with alt/aug till you hit culling strike and no other influenced mod.
-Use an awakener orb and make sure you use it on the gloves correctly!
You will now have gloves with unnerve on hit and culling strike and randomly rolled stats. Used to be that you could craft on with harvest, but not sure how you would proceed from here now.
hey Dreagation
great crafting explanation on gloves , can you explain the process on a end game belt

Problem is I haven't played this league, so I don't have a feel on how harvest has changed exactly, which kinda matters on crafting processes. :P

For basics on the belt I'd probably suggest fossils for the belt. (you had the influenced base already right?) lucent fossils for hitting the mana stuff, but then I don't know if I would use more fossils for the craft.
My goal would be to hit either mana recovery rate and good life/mana (or all 3 if you're very lucky) or mana recovery rate and decent resses.
If you hit the life/mana and can craft the other and still keep your resses capped, just use that.
If you hit decent resses, look out for reforge keep suffixes in harvest and keep rerolling the prefixes that way till you hit good life/mana and an open prefix to craft the other.

But ye, there might be better ways out there to craft it.
Hi,

A question to your manareg.

Probably the easiest thing for you is get the right boots enchant.
The flat lightning damage craft on your wand doesn't add too much damage, maybe craft mana regen instead.
Get gloves with this implicit:

Get quality on your amulet.
Get a recover %mana on block shield.
Get a watcher's eye with mana recovery rate while affected by clarity.
I see transcendent mind is not too expensive, probably on par with the watcher's eye pricewise, so that's another option.

More expensive:
Get a stygian vise (or I guess other belt) with % increased mana recovery rate.
Get a divergent arcane surge.

That should be plenty to work on just for mana regen. :p
May I also suggest: Put quality on your lvl20 gems with the GCP recipe (Follow Enki's advice on which gems to quality). They'll be turned into lvl1, but they level up quick enough again.
How much invest do i need to farm t16 maps and ultimatums without death? got my summoner skele, i can sell it's gear and get about 15ex, i think
Hey yall! Would love some help with my build. Just lost to a A5 Sirus and feeling a bit defeated. Currently on my todo list I'm

Trying to 6-link a Cloak of Defiance I have.
Working to either get Mana Reg on my boots or make a pair a bit close to what I have with the enchantment on it already.

If I am missing something totally weird on my build please let me know. :/
