What would you recommend leveling as from league start if you wanted to get to this build?
I always enjoy freezing pulse right into Storm Brand.

Thanks for a great build.

I love the build, but survivability seems to be a problem for me. Are there any recommendations for survivability?
hi there,

thx for this build.
Is the only way to get elusive coming from the boots ? Because they are not easy to find...
Hey! Great build. But how the heck can we get to those 50 ex?? I create a lvl 1 witch, and how am I supposed to level up untill i can afford all this stuff? Any suggestions?
pretty decent build i took a more defensive route since i got a shield with power charge implicit and increased my block chance + enduring compusre gave me more tankiness over all did all content just fine all of it and im still level 89!


Would it be a good idea to use Inpulsa's Broken Heart + Asenath's Gentle Touch for this build?
hey would it work with eagle essence large cluster jewel this build the difference is instead of increased lightning dmg. it gives gold dmg so far havent seen eny with lightning and other right skills.
