Path of Exile is a free-to-play action RPG with a lot of skills to combine and builds to create. Abilities in the game are found in gems socketed into your equipment. One of the best starter builds you can use and should consider is the Arc Witch Build since it’s easy but also more efficient enough to help you get through the game’s content.

Arc Witch Build Guide in Path of Exile

The Arc Witch build is highly recommended because it has low gear requirements. In addition, it is also easy to play since it has an auto-target and chains feature that can obliterate enemies quickly.

However, you will have to transition into a stronger build when you reach the late game. This guide will teach you the basics of the Arch Witch build, including its mechanics, gems, and many more.

Building an Arc Witch

Arc Witch’s build mechanics heavily rely on Elemental Overload and Attribute Stacking.

  • Elemental Overload: temporarily disables your Critical Strike Multiplier in exchange for a 40% increase in Elemental Damage. When you land a critical strike, this is applied to your skill for 8 seconds; however, it has no effect on your other skills. It only requires about 15-20% crit probability to be helpful, allowing you to put more money into other stats rather than crit.
  • Attribute Stacking: Attribute Stacking allows you to get a considerable boost from modifiers, enhancing your Strength, Dexterity, and Intelligence. An entire build is created around these attributes, focusing on a single stat, while other stats are only leveled up to meet requirements.

The Crystallized Omniscience amulet, will stack all attributes up. The best part is that it doesn’t matter which attribute it is because the amulet changes all of them to the same attribute.

Recommended Gems

  • Freezing Pulse, transition to Arc
  • Orb of Storms
  • Frostblink, transition to Flame Dash
  • Clarity
  • Herald of Thunder
  • Determination
  • Defiance Banner
  • Summon Lightning Golem
  • Summon Stone Golem
  • Summon Flame Golem
  • Summon Chaos Golem
  • Wave of Conviction
  • Conductivity

Ascendancy

  • Liege of the Primordial (Normal Labyrinth)
  • Elemancer (Cruel Labyrinth)
  • Mastermind of Discord (Merciless Labyrinth)
  • Bastion of Elements (Eternal Labyrinth)

Tips

Check that all of your auras are active and that all golems have been summoned before entering any map.

Keep your Diamond Flask full, get Onslaught for extra speed, and try sniping several enemies with Orb of Storms.

Use Flame Dash and your Quicksilver Flask to reposition or move between enemies.

To be safe, use your Granite, Basalt Flasks and Vaal Molten Shell if you expect to take a lot of damage.

Lava is one of the many terrains that you can encounter in Terraria. This one, however, is found deep underground right in the Cavern layer. That said, walking on lava will cause you to take damage per hit, making it quite dangerous if you happen to fall on one.

Luckily, you can prevent that issue with the help of the Lava Charm. In this guide, I’ll show you how you can obtain this item in the new 1.4.4 update.

How to Get Lava Charm 1.4.4 Update in Terraria

The only way to obtain the Lava Charm in the game is by looking for it in Hellstone and Obsidian Crates. However, it only has a 5% chance of spawning, which means you’ll have to look into various chests to find one.

You can make the process a lot easier by using seed 1.4.1.1547844366.

As soon as you get there, you’ll want to open your inventory and use the Magic Conch. Then, make sure that you teleport to the ocean on the farthest left. Then, use your drill and dig deep straight into the ground until you reach the Caverns

Once you do, head to the right and go through the small tunnel on a diagonal pattern until you stumble upon some lava pools. Here, simply look for chests on the ground and hope that they contain a Lava Charm.
