what would u link inb weapons for boss killing with this build? :D and thanks for this build. never levelt so fast before hehe :D
Im looking to make this guy a hogm, dedicated only build are there any tips or $$$ gear I can skip? I dont need it for anything else just solely hogm farming.
Hi! first and foremost I'd like to apolize if I make some weird typo as english is not my native language. With that out of the way I'd like to thank you for this guide as it's an incredibly powerful build that has allowed me to rolfstomp all the content i've tried so far.

I made this account years ago but I didn't really play until a month or so ago so I'm a fairly new player with lots of doubts. At first I followed the guide religiously (as much as I could ofc, there are some items I can't afford/find) but now I'm at that point where I wish to completely understand this build and so I have some questions.

1. According to your path of building link, your character has 61% accuracy this means you miss 39% of your hits which translates in a huge dps loss, isn't it painfully low? I myself have 69% but I've been told to aim for 90% (multiple guides also aim for 90% or wear Lycosidae and the such).

2. Warlord's Mark ring... I checked poe.trade and not only is it painfully expensive but they also have poor stats. You mention that you can craft them but I'm at a lost here, I have no idea about crafting or how much I'd have to invest to craft a ring with warlord's mark.

The same applies for Aspect of the Spider, I have no clue about how to craft it and how expensive it would be.

I was using Praxis and NEVER ran out of mana but a few hours ago I was messing around and turns out even without it I don't run out of mana.

3. Cooldown Recovery belt. I can't understand the uses for this stat in the build, I blame my ignorance and lack of game mechanics knowledge.

4. Wise Oak flask. I absolutely have no idea what this flasks does... the wording is very confusing to me, what does it exactly do for us? my resistances are as follow:
Cold: 76% (82%)
Fire: 75% (86%)
Lightning: 75% (81%)
Chaos: -40% (-40%)

My character tab is public, if you could be so kind as to check it for possible mistakes and what I should aim to improve I would be really grateful.

In your hideout there are crafting stations that you can get based on the level of your Masters. I didn't play beast league so I am guessing thats how you get the Aspect of the Spider, you can go here to find out more https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Aspect_of_the_Spider. I also found this for beastcrafting https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Beastcrafting.

The Wise Oak Flask increases your spell penetration based on your lowest resist, so from the numbers you have shown on a normal map you would have fire and lighting pen and on higher maps based on your res in the parenthesis you would have extra lighting pen. So object is to make your res all even (which can be a bit hard) and can have extra pen to all 3 elements.

For the Cooldown recovery question it helps you trigger your spells faster from the poet's pen weapon faster so it means more dps really. Hopefully this helps, GL out there.
