Witch Builds List 3.3

Currently looking for someone to take over the witch & templar build guide threads. pm if interested.

Current version: 3.3

With each new major content patch, builds that have not been updated to the prior version will be archived at the bottom of this list. This list is maintained and edited with readability and accuracy in mind. By default, all builds are archived if not updated within two major release cycles.

Notice: Build Submissions
NOTICE: If you wish to have your build guide represented here, post the link and a short description as a reply. It must be updated to the current major version, and be an actual build guide. Links to your skill tree and gear is not a build guide. Where possible, I will be filtering submissions very moderately to only keep actual builds listed. Obvious troll builds that would have difficulty clearing mud flats likely won't appear here.

In addition, naming of builds submitted is up to builder discretion. I will however modify and prune elements of naming as I see fit to keep the listing legible, free of subjective opinion, or numerical values that are subject to change. These include but are not limited to:
• Path of Building DPS
• Estimated HitPoints
• Cost per league to construct
• 'Best', 'Only', '#1' subjective naming.

Concrete numbers that pertain to the build are permitted, such as 'three-curses' etc.

F.A.Q.

Q: Where has my build guide gone?
A:
All build guides were archived to the old builds list produced by Bada_Bing or myself. He retired from the position of maintaining the Witch builds list, and I took up the responsibility. If you would like your build re-added, ensure it is updated for the current game patch.

Q: Why not just have all of the builds listed here?
A:
These forums have a 15,000 character limit. By the time builds are formatted for readability, their entire url input, and the divider tags... there really isn't room for all of the builds in a single post. There shouldn't be an issue with fitting all of the builds in a single post really. I plan to talk to the poeurl.com people and inquire as to if they wouldn't mind me using their system to cut down on character usage.

Q: Why is my build guide not Exactly listed as I typed it in my comment?
A:
I always admired Bada_Bing's builds listing pages simply because they were easy to read, I could find exactly what I wanted very quickly, and I could see where builds didn't already exist which gave me ideas for making my own builds. For this reason, I have endeavoured to force very basic formatting for all of the guides listed here. It's basically just the [version number].

Q: Why don't you want silly 'for fun' builds posted here?
A:
Certain builds are definitely entertaining and worth spreading. I'm all about wormblaster BotW videos and fun and creative mechanical builds. These pages however are build guides for newer and old players alike to try something out that should be considered tempered and tested to function properly. I will add builds that don't exactly fit this requirement if you ask nicely.

Q: I don't like what I named my build anymore and I want to change it!
A:
No worries, however in order to change it, I merely ask that you pm me the name and link to it, as well as have the actual build guide reflect this new change. I would like consistency between naming schemes and URL titles. No one likes accidentally stepping into the old build-guide switcharoo

Q: Why don't you take on other build pages as well?
A:
I had not considered it yet as Witch is the class I am most competent in playing and I believed myself able to filter actual builds from bait and switch. I will discuss it a bit with Bada_Bing and see what he would like me to do on that topic.

Changelog
11/29/16 - Recovered all of the builds that were inherently [2.4] compliant.
9/15/17 - pruned 2.6 builds, only 3.0 builds are listed at this point.
10/29/17 - Removed all claims of budget/EHP/DPS from build titles. Moving forward, these will not be permitted as identifying markers for naming syntax.

Recognition
I feel it is appropriate to thank Bada_Bing for selflessly upkeeping most of the build guide listings for The Past Three Years prior to my taking this task on. I used his page perhaps hundreds of times, and I know it was the go-to for most of the players on my friend's list. Without it, I likely would not have been exposed to so many interesting and fun parts of the game. From one player to another, thank you for all that you provided myself and the community for so long. I am sure most of us feel the same.

Maybe PM a mod or something to get this stickified?
And probably need to poke the other list authors afterwards to update their Witch list links.
Edit: you're missing links to the other build lists! They were all nice and interconnected previously.

Anyways, awesome job on this, and well done and thank you to bada_bing!
Pants? Bah. Who needs pants when you're exiled. Theres magic and other more important things to pay attention to.
