Really appreciate all the hard work and am looking forward to trying out this build.

One question, Ethereal Knives is our main skill, yet we can't actually pick that up as a reward from Enemy at the Gate as a witch. That's only available to the Shadow class. Am I missing something?

Thanks again!


You can buy the skill gem from Nessa, after killing Hillock. If you're in doubt, you can always check on the game's Wiki page:
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Ethereal_Knives

When you scroll down, check the "Vendor reward" table, it shows when the gem can be bought, and by which class :)
Where approximately do you need to keep your mouse in order to cast AW on the lingering blades? I somehow have a really hard time casting AW. At the start of the zones I have to hold down attack for 6-7 attacks only to get 2 or 3 AW. And fighting against bosses I have troubles keeping up my AW because I aim for the boss to curse him but somehow don'T spawn enough AW
Hey, looking to try this build as league starter on ps as soon as league starts. Have one question I ain't it worth spending to 2 points to get spiritual aid? As we pick a lot of minion passive point on the way it will help us with hp etc?

I had similar problem at first. Try a little test when there are no mobs around - cast Ethereal Knives a few times, and look at the ground, you will see that some of the knives have dropped on the ground - these are the so called lingering blades - you should point the cursor at, or close around, them when casting Animate Weapon. I think also you can't be too far from them for the cast to be succesfull. Finaly, though it may come to personal preference, try switching Ethereal Knives for Bladefall. Personally I find using bladefall more comfortable to spawn, and animate the lingering blades. Hope this helps ;)

Part of the trick is targeting. Ethereal Knives shots them farther out in a fan/wave while Bladefall leave more clustered about.
Spoiler
(Golden Bladefall mtx seems to make the blades thinner and thus harder to click fyi.)
Also I think when you spellsling or trigger via socketed the skill that generates Lingering Blades generates half as many as when you self cast it.

So I know that minions don't benefit from non-minion damage mods, but what about '% increased damage with poison' on a jewel? Does poison get tagged as having come from a minion and therefore not count?
So how exactly do i get to have both spellslingers with a 6L and the bladefall + culling and also blasphemy temporal chains. I got to pick all the reduced mana reserved and there is no way, not enough mana pool

Ty Wrecker of Days. I'm now lvl 67 and the mana is enough for 4 or 5 link, but with 2 Ghastly Eye Jewel have i enough dmg. I wait for the Void Beacon note in Occultist and use then Lesser Poison in the chest for Animate Weapon.
The Build is perfect for my internet problems. The Monsters are in false positions and movement skills warp me back when to much use.
I hope for more Armor with resistence.
Sweet DragoBasler!

I'm glad it's working well for you. Like any build, once the gear comes, you'll be flying. I'm glad the build suits your internet despite the "rubberbanding".

Good luck!

Hi Wrecker, great build.

I definitely suggest using raging spirit as a main spell until spellslinger, keeping AW in a weapon swap to keep it leveled.

The playstyle is super fun, this is everything I dreamed of when looking at AW builds. However, I'm having trouble scaling the damage up. I don't expect this build to be killing AL8 Sirus anytime soon, but I just can't find much room to get more damage from the weapons. Any tips?
Hi TeoshenEM!

I'm glad you're liking the build. Ya, SRS is awesome to level with. There's nothing wrong with sticking with that until you're happy with the Damage of AW.

At level 40 you could get your first ascension to help with your damage. that'd be a big boost. You could always self-cast your Lingering Blades (only when you need them) and have a BLasphmemy of either TC or Enfeeble that could help as well (or self-cast that too).
