[3.11] Enki's Arc Witch - a beginner & SSF-friendly Lightning Caster

Stupid question (I started PoE few days ago).

I got a wand with 3links blue
I got arc gem and few other lighting support.

which gems do I need to put in my wand in order to get an arc ? Probably for you this is stupid, but again, just started.

I tried with this order:
first - ARC
second - lightning warp
3rd - added light damage support.

and I didnt get an ARC. Only some kind of blue aura ...

pls advice!

The order of the gems does not matter.

It's important that the sockets are linked in order for Ark to be supported from the support gems.

How ever, you should be able to socket Arc in any blue gem slot on your gear and you shuld be able to select Arc in your hotbar and start lasering mobs. Make sure you didnt have arc socketed in an weapon in your inactive weapon slot.

I changed my Doryani's by a Corona Solaris, can you guys suggest a good thing to replace my blind setup? Something that compensates the less damage of corona over doryani's? i have lost around 3-4k dps.


Another thing, did you guys think that the assassin's mark ring can be substituted by a mark of the shaper ring withou an elder/shaped essense worm?
I made this change when buyed the corona solaris, because corona have lots of crit chance
I returned to POE after several leagues off and am moving right along with this build and enjoying it immensely. I'm out of cheap upgrades though (other than buying a jewel for my empty slot when I get home lol), so I'm wondering what is the best investment for the next upgrade to gear. I think it's a socketed belt or maybe jewelry, but then I started wondering about my chestpiece. Is it smarter to spend some dough to get an ok 6L rare, and use that until I can afford a 6L Inpulsa? Or should I just keep my 5L rare I have right now and upgrade next to a 5L Inpulsa? I don't have a good understanding of how much having Hypothermia come online will impact my damage. TY Enki and everyone else in advance.
I could use some SSF-friendly advice at this point -- I've been stuck at 89 for a few weeks as I keep dying on and off all over the place on maps 5-12. I don't think there are any particular mods or enemies that seem to be the culprit other than tier 10+ legion encounters and kitava. I blew a bunch of currency trying to get a crappy assassin's mark ring, so I don't have a ton of crafting to sling around, but if anyone has some tips for getting to the next level, I'd really appreciate it.

--edit nevermind, I couldn't figure out how to delete this post, but thank you anyways!

Hi Guys,

I was wondering what do you think about a couple of changes I want to make to this build.
Fist I'd use Zealotry instead of Wrath, seems better overall. Wrath only increases spell lightning damage while Zealotry would increase overall spell damage that works for the cold portion too. (the added lightning doesn't work for arc unless i am mistaken as it says attacks not spells)
I'd slot Zealotry in an essence worm and use Herald of Ice and Herald of thunder and maybe even herald of ash with an enlighten

Then I'd drop beacon of ruin, since now doesn't proliferate ailments and drop liege of primordial and instead take Mastermind of Discord for the penetration and herald effect increases. This would also help with the mana reservation penalty of the essence worm

Finally i'd drop MoM as I don't like to take a big hit and be unable to cast spells and I am reserving most of my mana anyways

I am lvl 35 and just did normal lab with the build, so far so good. Lemme know what you think of the changes.

Thanks
Spook
1. how do you leech now w/o WM?
2. is unleash as a support gem worth it? i watched your runs, and it's barely sealed for more than 1 seal.

There's a lot to unpack here. First, you are sacrificing a ton of survivability by dropping MoM. I don't see how you could make such a build viable for endgame with 30% less eHP. You'd have to stack a ton of ES to avoid getting constantly one-shotted, which is costly in terms of gear and skill point allocation.

Second, dropping Wrath precludes you from getting mana leech via Watcher's Eye, which is a linchpin of the build. How are you going to sustain mana?

Third, adding all these other auras will reserve way too much mana; even without MoM, this is an active caster build that is constantly consuming mana. Even if you keep Wrath so you don't lose mana leech, you'll constantly be running dry.

These changes summarily destroy the elegant balance Enki has struck with the architecture of the build. Proceed at your own risk!

Thanks for the reply man, I appreciate it.

I could solve the leech problem with boots enchant, i think that should be enough and it's not that expensive

As for the survivability I was doing fine without MoM back when I was playing triple herald BV elementalist and that was purely life based. I could do this a hybrid char to have more EHP. Also would be using a shield

I get it that Enki created a nice balance here, but I'm a more experienced player and I think i can get away with losing some defense. Or maybe not and then I R.I.P lol

I'm not sure if the damage increase I am getting with these changes is worth it, though. I am at work and cannot check PoB :(
How should I go on developing my character at this point? I am able to kill Elder, but am struggling with Shaper and guardians (especially minotaur who oneshots me). POB shows 329k Shaper DPS.

Would new weapons and getting enchants on the current helm/gloves/boots be enough?
