How do u solve mana problem? I feel like i'm out of mana pretty often. Also, what should i upgrade next?


As long as you have enough mana to cast twice (which is your unreserved mana + mana regen divided by your attack speed should equal twice the mana cost of KB) you will never have mana problems. If your mana is low in your current setup for some reason u can temporarily use inspiration gem, remove enhance support or take the 4% mana reservation node for 1 point. it will sort itself out as u get more mana from your ever rising intelligence (i got 2018 total and 180 unreserved mana atm)

i would lock prefixes scour and multimod my wand with base crit and base attack speed. Swap to shapy gloves if u need to for accuracy, later u can get accuracy from another piece of gear and swap back.

btw i am getting 220 ES from gloves but it is a very luxury thing, as long as helm and body are solid u will easily break the 10k ES cap

Just crafted this no more than 5 minutes ago since seeing this guide, instacrafted moment I saw this guide.

Not a mirror tier compared to OP's though.

Quick Q, is the last ex slam I got - prefix I got Phys to lightning helpful in any way at all? I was hoping to get accuracy but late to realize it's a suffix.

Ty!
Build looks tempting for next league...been looking for a good non-herald INT stacker. And I like fast clearing builds with solid single-target.

How is sustain? Your ES was bouncing a bit during simulacrum. Would a Discipline +ES on Hit mod on Watcher's Eye be effective with this build?
Also, curious your thoughts on using gloves with ideal mods:

- ES prefixes
- Socketed attacks have +60-80% crit multi suffix
- Socketed gems supported by Level 20 Faster Attacks + Attack Speed suffix
- INT

Could then keep PS in your 6L chest and have an effective 5L/6L (depending on your luck in crafting) for KB clear as well.

Probably very difficult to craft (suffixes first with serrated fossils then metacraft prefixes) and would likely lead to giving up some ES (short of lucking into a mirror tier item), but in theory, what do you think?

Sadly physical to lightning is very little dmg as we do not scale physical dmg at all. It is still a good wand thou :)

i experimented with that with slower projectiles from gloves. In the end i decided it is not worth the effort as single target dmg was not lacking with enough gear, which will probably be the case when u can remove the shaper gloves.
But u can also get hypotermia support from shapy helm, or sacrifice helm slot for harbinger mask for innervate + hypotermia too if u wish.

For my hp jumping on last wave and Es gain on hit, the watcher mod tops you up real nice in delve and simulacrum (spellslinger + ball lightning + slower proj instead of curse and moving curse from a ring makes it decent vs bosses too) but it is really a bit overkill, i even removed steelskin from the build at some point.
My hp moves on wave 20 but i stand in the middle but i got used to it. 3% es on kill + leech usually tops me up after every node spawn anyways so i stand in the mid barely dodging to maximize loot.

But if you want more defenses there are a few variations i am working on, like warcry version atm with 2 medium cluster jewels to get rage, end. charges, regen and physical reduction (basically costs 4 points and swapping annoint from Tranquility to Battle Cry). Also lets you Berserk vs bosses :)
I will probably will add those setups depending on viability before end of the league.

Hello, I am planning on playing some HOWA build and want to buy Watcher's with Clarity/ES mod and one universal Discipline or Precision mod which would work for majority of builds. In my opinion "no-gos" are crit precision (usually because of Ele. overlord) and es on hit discpline (too expensive with Clarity mod :D). Good mods: Prec/attack speed, Prec/attack dmg, Disc/ES recovery and Disc/ES faster recharge. Which one is the best and the most rounded mod in your opinion and good for this build? :)

P.S. Can I ask you why Wrath is not used in this build? I notice a lot of HOWA builds dont use it either but kinda dont know why.

Thank you for your answer:)
Wrath is better for spellcasting builds where it gives a stable more dmg modifier. For me it gives 13% more dmg for 50 reservation which aint worth it, i believe that is the situation with HoWA as well considering its pretty much the same build with a different weapon type

well this gear looks very similar to the leveling build i am designing atm. Without the lightning dmg per int wand PS dmg will lack a lot thou. u should try using elemental hit on a body armor with +1 active skill gems (shaper mod) or in a frostferno helm until u can swap into full int stacking wander.


swapped to Frostferno with Ele hit and certainly helped single target thx

crafted int wand since, not great no flat lightning, but as good as i can get without woke orb etc, POB says it's 50% more PS damage than Piscator with current int (700)

PS still feels terrible on 4 link tho lol, red maps up bosses take forever

It's a fun build but can't see getting much more out of it, not SSF anyway, maybe if woke orb or the shield prophecy lands will look at it again.

Well this build is not very ssf friendly for sure. You can skip a woke orb by using a shaper amulet with attributes% and dmg per int; but the wand will need one for sure.

Still what you did was an excellent attempt for SSF, maybe one day i will try to do a ssf friendly version too
