just started this build and ive played Arc long long time ago,clear is amazing,but can anyone tell me how is bossing with this build,can be it decently good atleast?


It is not bad, I would dare say it is better than the Necro version, at least at this point in the league for me. I would say that it is better for the casual player for certain. I am not sure if it will be better after pumping hundreds of exalts into it. The Necro version I had last league with Chain Support would melt bosses but that was at the end of the league and with a lot of investment.
Get points into Batte Rouse, I see you have a cluster jewel, if you have points in it then move them to do so.

Get Wrath into an essence worm ring, it cannot be run unless in that ring.

Swap out the boots for something with more useful stats but the enchant you have is essentially mandatory and needs to be replicated by lab running or on the ones you buy.

You need a different flask setup, see below for the proper affixes.

Is this directed to me? Thanks!

I am just leveling up Wrath haven't used it, but I do have an essence worm, just need to re jig my res to use it.

How does Battle Rouse work with MoM?

I'll start shopping for better boots and flasks, thanks for the help! These boots were cheapest I could find with 70% affix when I last looked, but I knew theyd be temporary solution

Any reason to use Forethought over Dreamer in the tree?

It was but I messed up the quotations. Battle Rouse is a big mana boost and as I understand it essentially negates some of the damage you might take, as MoM depletes your mana Battle Rouse refills it.

Dreamer is bad, it actually lowers your dps by A LOT.
Your damage is based on the mana spent because of Archmage, so reducing that cost will cripple your damage.

I am using Omeyocan, too. It's really amazing for any Archmage build if you can spare the core stats for it. The downside is obvious but can be overcome (although it's more of a challenge now than it was with the necro version of this build). I am tearing out my hair trying to get the mana regen enchantment on it this league, though...never had to try this many times to get it.


Can you explain to me why you like these so much? I know you know what you are doing and used them last league as well but I just can't wrap my head around why they are so good. Is it the mana increase and consistent onslaught or is it the dodge chance? I would try them out but I need the dex from my current boots and also don't have spare chaos at this time.


Well, they essentially offer all of this:
50% movement speed
20% increased cast speed
20% spell dodge
20% attack dodge
20% increased maximum mana
35% lightning resistance
Extra flask slot (from dropping silver flask)

Aside from the lightning resistance, there are barely any other boots that can offer even a single one of those insane mods. All at the cost of 7% mana per second, which this build can easily sustain when geared up all the way. It barely made a dent with the necro version, though it's a bit more noticeable so far this time around.

The build just feels so much more fleet when you're wearing them. Map clear speed is noticeably increased. And if you swap in a quartz flask for the silver flask you no longer need, that's a possible 30% chance to dodge all hits, offering some very badly needed damage avoidance in a build that now has basically none aside from the native 15% attack block chance you get from dial wielding.

Totally personal preference, of course, but to answer your question, the permanent Onslaught is probably the most attractive thing to me.

Sound reasoning. I do always look for 30+ movement boots and last league they intrigued me but with unique gloves I just could not make the resistances work. I am hopeful that this league, especially with Harvest resistance trading, I will be able to give them a go, just have to move the dex somewhere else or pony up for the 30+ skill point node.

Survivability has been much improved with Bastion of Elements and a 9k mana pool but still nothing like the Necro build which could just face tank so much. Spending a lot more time kiting and playing flask piano this league. I have also now almost fixed my atlas and should be able to start generating some income now to buy stuff.

What are your thoughts on The Anima Stone and running a fifth Golem which would be Lightning Golem? That is currently what I am saving currency to do in the hopes that the interactions with Liege of the Primordial and Elemancer will provide a big boost.
we take 2 points instead of a bandit correct?
Hey I'm kind of new, anyways im in act 3 rn, but 1 question why not switch out arc for wave of conviction it has better dps and stats if its linked with arcane surge and lightning damage?, ty.
