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

This has probably been posted a handful of times, but I went through the last 10 pages or so and can't find it.

Is there a way to farm the Three Dragons in SSF? And any other recommended uniques?

Using Orb of Chance on golden mask probably will be easiest one. Three Dragons is the only possible outcome.

And metamorphs/blights/delve provide steady supply of Orbs of Scouring.
I have been having a blast following this guide, but I am at a point where I can no longer level due to all the random one-shots. I am level 87 and any time I try to run anything red or higher I die constantly trying to get through the map. Unfortunately I'm on PS4 so I don't have access to many of the upgrades and things at the higher end like Glorious Vanity, etc. I'm at around 4.2k lie and 1.3k ES with max resists and I feel like I could have 1000 more of each and still have the same issues. Any quick tips? Not sure how to link gear and such - but is this normal? Do most folks just suicide there way through harder stuff at the end game? Or is this build just more squishy than most. I feel like it takes me forever and a day to kill bosses (conquerers, etc). I even ran out of portals on the last one, which was a 3 watchstone Baran. Is the idea to level by running maps and skipping the bosses and metamorph for safety reasons since xp takes a nosedive at this level in anything below T12 or so? I only have one character in my profile for those who wish to have a look.

To add: I just got into the game maybe 3 weeks ago, and was having so much fun with the witch I was thinking about running it again next league - but that's not gonna happen now. I want to run something with boss dps - apparently the FoM is currently necro, so maybe that. For the remainder of this season through I have roughly 6 EX of currency which can get me like 1 decent item - a glorious vanity - a 6L staff (without the +3 to lightning of course) - etc. Any helpful tips appreciated! I enjoy the game so much I am thinking of just switching from PS4 to PC for the economy aspect even though I just bought the PS4:(

Edit 2: I just chnanged some gems around yesterday trying anything to have more success. Prior to that I was running the setup straight from the guide. Storm Brand on the 5L staff, the suggested golems in a 4L, and no CWDT at all. So those changes were somewhat of a hail mary to see if I could improve.

To improve your survivability I would recommend the following:

high life rolls on all gear
high energy shield rolls on gear
try to get high chaos res (!)

especially with this char it is imoprtant to dodge as much dmg as possible by flame dashing

have a close look at the map & especially boss mods - i think if you dont thats something killing you regularly

save flask charges for boss fights / keep flasks up
keep steelskin up during boss fight (i would prefer to have it on a cwdt-setup)
learn boss mechanics -> dodge dmg

All in all I just feel you - I tried out his build (it is my ~20th char in this game) and have to say it feels squishy as hell.

But Metamorph is just a damn rippy league on its own ...

If you hate dying (like I do) I highly recommend looking for HC viable builds - this one isnt for sure ;-)

Does anyone know if an explode chest would work well with this build?
Anyone willing to take a look at my build and help a newcomer figure out why I don't have enough mana with 2 heralds, one zealatory and a clarity lvl 5?

I mean, I have like 200 mana left, but I cast 2 arcs and one brand and I need to wait a couple of seconds before I can cast another arc...

Any suggestions to improve (either build or items) are greatly appreciated. I do have some currency left, just not sure where to go.

Get the Uber Lab boot enchantment that gives you 70% increased mana regen and level up your Clarity to the point where you have about 150-160 mana remaining. Make sure you're constantly keeping Arcane Surge up. If you're still having issues, you can get a Watcher's Eye that increases mana recovery rate while affected by Clarity.

I have about 5k life, 4kES, 5% life on kill, 5% ES on kill and still struggle to level.

I think you reach a point around 80-90 where you can no longer get levels from playing the game and have to plan to level.

I am currently trying to level from 97-98.

Leveling is all about Maximum EXP vs minimum risk vs cost

If you got the currency probably the safest thing to do is grab a group of 4 people and run pure breach stones, but that's super expensive and hard to find the groups.

For me I find Delving super good for EXP and low risk.
- Stay with the light cart
- dont risk any unusual nodes
- Tombs are ok for me
There are still a couple of mobs to be careful of. 1 dog like thing that cast what look like a sonic wave can drain health and ES super quick, but once you have a bit of experience they are pretty easy to kill or avoid. Best thing about delve is that you can choose the depth that feels safe for you.

With regards to mapping. I run T16 red maps: I find the trash mobs usually pretty easy except some of the ones who fire those spikes when they die are a little risky, I have to slow down or just leave the map.

I only run maps where I know the boss is easy to kill. For example "promenade" There are two bosses on the map (not locked in a room you cant escape from). One is melee and super easy to kite. The other can kill you but only from a super slow ball lightning which is easy to dodge.

I do run Metamorph on this map because I have run it so many times I know which parts I can use and what the effects do.

On other maps I may take a look at the metamorph but I am always willing to just run away or leave the map if it looks risky. Die at level 97 or more and its hours and hours of farming to get back to where you were. If something looks risky just leave the map and open another. I will probably skip any legion spawns, they can hit hard and be risky.

You may want to look out for armor thats a little better for survivability you can swap in when you go for a level.

- Pay attention to metamorph parts that are risky
- Remember which are the easier map bosses

I have done a few levels where I just skip the metamorph altogether until I level.



Thanks for the replies guys, I actually figured during my playing today I would try to delve deep enough to where the mobs give decent xp. I'm curretly only like 50ish. I will also add steelskin to my CWDT setup to see how that works out!

The ULab enchant is pretty hard to get :(

I tried what you suggested, but so far the only solution was to give up Arcane surge. Add Enlighten (3) to the 3 auras and have clarity (lvl 7) instead of A.surge
