Does Spiritual Aid affext the Incursion mod of Citaqualotl?
Especially the 5% Chance for Minions to deal double damage?
Or is the Tacati mod better as a crafting base?
Playing this build since league start. Slowly but steady getting it better and better. I'm about like 120 hours played, so taking my time :) Currently PoB shows almost 8 mil dps non boss (4,5 a8 shaper). Not sure if I messed something up there, can't really believe that with my semi-decent gear it can be like that.

But, firstly, I want to express gratitude to those who advocated for using Agnostic. I was rather an unbeliever, but now I see! It feels like I can even push beyond 95 now. I have rather old pc (can't afford to upgrade) plus shitty internet (will be fixed soon) so doing harder content is deadly to me. Any slight loading delay or latency spike and I'm dead. But with Agnostic escape is possible. And it is awesome. Plus it enables us to us Righteous Fire. And 40% more dmg is no joke (without RF 4,8m dps, with 8m dps if you like it in flat numbers).
So if anyone still considering to use Agnostic or not -- it is rather no brainer, as long as you have enough mana regen. As for me Clarity and Watcher Eye with Clarity should be enough. And good mana pool. I switched to Agnostic at 10k mana pool, so can't say what should be considering minimum good mana pool, though.


Ok, now lets get to gear.
My strange wand with Conductivity on Hit. Got it for 5 chaos, not even considering getting anything else as of yet.
Still using Crown of the of the Inward Eye. But thinking about getting one of those fancy Bone Helmets.
My Chest piece completely generic and without %mana/life craft. And everything else is pretty standard. Main focus was to get mana on every piece and res. capped. Nothing fancy at all. Most expensive things are Awakened gems.
About my setup: double curse with Ele Weakness+Curse on Hit with Orb of Storms, second curse Conductivity on Hit as mod on wand. Wrath in the ring. 4 awakened gems with Arc. Righteous Fire instead of lvl 6 Arcane surge (just removing this one gave me good dmg bonus, don't even know why I never did that before :D). Going for Wrath, second Curse and RF boosted me from like 3m non-boss dmg to 8m and I'm yet to level my gems to max and get proper Watcher Eye with Clarity+Wrath mods. So there is so much more potential! Proper bone helmet and gloves. Maybe tailwind? Drop life flasks for something interesting? Get one of those fancy cluster jewel and Kitava Teachings? Out of Mana flows anoint (but I've reached 10k mana so it's gonna be hard to loose it :D)? 10m dps possible, right?
Anybody interested in buying my gear?
I'm swapping characters because I'm going to hit 100 soon :)

Sadly, no. As is typical for GGG, the wording of Spiritual Aid is very literal and only applies to increases and reductions in minion damage. Mods like more minion damage and chance for minions to deal double damage are 100% useless for us.

Tacati's is a good mod, but there are probably better influenced ones to look for (along with a huge mana roll) as a crafting base, since increased spell damage is obtainable via horticrafting.
Ugh. Three times now I've lost to Sirus. I need some help folks. I generally understand the mechanic, but I keep dying on the third phase. Just can't keep it together to kill him, although he was nearly dead this time. I'm working on crafting a Bone Helmet and a pair of boots, but given my numbers in PoB, I thought I was already at the right numbers to beat him.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have about 4-5 ex saved up.

Can't check PoB at work, but what's your mana pool like? From your gear, it looks like there's lots of room for improvement there, which is good defensively and offensively. For sure you should get Atziri's Foible to 20% quality, that's just a straight upgrade. But your wand, gloves, and belt each could use another 50+ mana on them. Also, Culling Strike seems like a must in this fight.

That said, don't feel too bad...I am also struggling with A8 Sirus WAY more than I should be. The ground degen effects are brutal, and he can be a bitch to hunt down and deal damage to in the last phase. I'd also be curious if anyone here has any specific tactics for this fight.

I have 7.2k mana, so I'm not terribly worried about fixing the mana on the wand, gloves, and belt yet, but it's on my list. Yeah, I need to upgrade the amulet. I was working that organically, but I can purchase the Quality for that. That's 1 ex down....

And like I said, working on the helmet and boots right now.

So this is just me, but I think your first priority should be aiming for 10k mana. That alone would give you like another 500 life recovery/second via Agnostic and increase your damage by at least 30% more. Spend the ex on amulet quality (yes the price tag sucks but the upgrade is forever). Allocate mind drinker if you can't get mana flows. (Even get lvl 21 Vaal Arc!) Get 2x Scintillating Idea. Those are a few ideas, but the overall point is that mana pool is of supreme importance. Mana cost scales directly with that and is extremely important for damage because of Archmage.

That's probably not much help. I've been trying to compare your PoB to mine, and I can't see what else would be making the DPS difference. Maybe you can see something if you look at your calcs compared to mine? https://pastebin.com/RqjKsmh0

(I am not advocating for all my decisions in the build, but you can't argue with the DPS!)

OK, I did the Shaper guardians tonight, if anyone wants more proof-of-concept biznazz.

(Everything is A8; map mods are not great but not crazy bad, either.)
