POE 3.4 Witch Elementalist Blade Flurry Build - Good League Starter & Clear Map

PoeCurrencyBuy Date: Sep/21/18 08:39:10 Views: 178

"Feed a storm with savage intent and not even the strongest walls will hold it back."

Elementalists deal in all things elemental. They have access to conditional but powerful element damage bonuses, some granted periodically or with a skill requirement.

This build uses Blade Flurry as the main skill. It's still fine for clearspeed. It's not your clear 2 screens with one massive projectile skill clearspeed, but with enough attack speed you can just WB>hold for half a second and move on. Overall better defenses than Blade Vortex.

Cons

  • - Beacon of Ruin is laggy as hell
  • - Not the most beginner friendly build out there

Gear

Simple Overview

simple_gear

Weapon

We don't need much on a weapon.

The most important stat here is Increased Attack Speed, we really want a VERY fast weapon (>2.0 attacks per second is optimal), then you want a bunch of flat elemental damage. We don't need crit at all since we are Elemental Overload.

You can also use a Vagan weapon with high attack speed, so you can replace your Lycosidae with a shield with attack speed, life and resistances or even an Esh's Mirror.

Jewels

You're looking for: flat life > high flat elemental damage for claws > Effect of Shock. Abyss jewels are a BIG part of this build.

Note: Getting good abyss jewels when respeccing to Blade Flurry is really important. You don't have to hunt for gg jewels right away, if they're not yet available in early league, or you can't afford them. Here you can find a poe.trade search for good jewels you can get to help you climb the atlas. Before browsing though, click 'show search form' on top and make sure correct league is selected.

If you want to craft them yourself, alt-regal some ilvl82 Murderous Eye jewels (you could try a Searching Eye too, but only if you really need one for Tombfist, Murderous Eye is easier to roll for flat damage).

Boots

For rare boots you just want your usual life + resistances + movement speed, if you don't need resistatnces, Atziri Step is a solid choice. Kaom's Roots are just so good for Uber Elder.

Amulet / Rings / Belts

What to look for on rare amulets and rings - life, flat elemental damage, elemental damage with weapons and resistances.

Belts - life, elemental damage with weapons, resistances, flask duration/charges used.

Core uniques

Leveling

We strongly recommend levelling with Blade Vortex to at least Blood Aqueduct. Start with Freezing Pulse linked to Arcane Surge and Onslaught (if you can ask someone to buy it for you or get it yourself on another character, as witch can't get Onslaught in act 1).

At level 12 you can start using Blade Vortex. Priority links are - Added Lightning Damage, Arcane Surge (make sure you keep it low level enough so it activates), maybe Added Cold and later Controlled Destruction if you have a 4l/Tabula. At level 16 you can add Physical to Lightning (replace Added Lightning Damage if you're not using a Tabula).

At level 38 your links should be Blade Vortex - Physical to Lightning - Efficacy - Controlled Destruction - Increased Duration - Increased Area of Effect/Concentrated Effect (drop last two for a 4l).

Remember to buy and level your other gems before switching to Blade Flurry.

Note: This levelling will cost you 12 respec points to switch to Blade Flurry (not a big deal, you can get all the points for free from quests).

POE 3.4 Builds: Guardian Aura Support Build - HC/SC League starter - Endgame, Cheap and Safe

Guardian Ascendancy got 2 new nodes, which buff the new Herald of Purity by a huge amount. Basically you can change the tree a bit, pick the two nodes and Herald of Purity in a 4L (maybe essence crafted, so it could get a potential 5L) and carry maps on your own at a slow pace. In this case, you would lose ES and Mana for sure, and the pure support skills would suffer. Only do this, if you can't find a carrier or if you are in love with minions!
