    Blade vortex seems like a popular choice now, but its more commonly done as elementalist.

    How the fuck do I get more single target damage with Arc totems, I can't do shit in T10 incursions because totems don't add time when hitting the architects. :negative:

    https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Lightning_Spire_Trap should be able to fix it if you can spare a 4-link, should scale on spell/lightning damage so it should be able to melt bosses on any arc build.

    Get a corrupted tabula that will raise your Arc levels. Use Vaal Arc vs architect, also use Vaal RF to get a 39% more damage boost for 5+ seconds.

    If you are ssf ignore the corrupted advice :D
    Then just farm one tabula if you are not using a 6L body armor.

    Also I hope you are doing crit arc totems, with hitting spells you either go crit or do pathetic damage. Only something like Blade Vortex can go non crit if you are doing specific builds that don't need it and (ab)use shaped sticks.

    not sure how much lightning spire is viable without aoe nodes. If you end up using it for single target, remember to slot bear trap too.

    i think ill do similar build in ssf as i currently have. This time occultist, as while i consider trickster superior and cheapest build I ever made, he does require trading to be capable.
    Worse cast speed, not sure if will be able to have decent enough evasion at all, no extra chaos but aoe will be much larger

    Don't need bear trap - might as well get away with decoy totem.

    bear trap adds debuff that increases trap dmg taken


    btw, does occultist spell dmg increase per power charge is a multiplier?

    Decoy totem applies taunt that reduces the damage taken by you. Plus, it actively distracts not one enemy, but every mob in radius.

    Traps deal a metric shitton of damage already, they don't need more damage. Extra survivability is always nice, though.

    as you said trap deal large dmg, so they wipe all the enemies, so no need for distracting crowd.
    On other hand dmg multiplier on sturdy boss is VERY welcome. Might be about preference, evading single enemy was never an issue for me.
    Or just use both

    It's really quite fun.
    If you are like me, you'll get somewhat bored by the time you run around in the jungle chapter - as not much is happening at that point, character build-wise.
    But stick to it and things really open up more as you progress and get gear with more slots, etc.

    Aaand I'm bored :negative: Tried some chieftein builds but got bored quickly, tried zombie+srs necro and bored at mapping, even tried ed+contagion but still no cigar :(

    Really nice ride all along, got fun for 700+ hours so I cannot complain.

    WTF I'm going to play now ...

    I'm in the same boat, finally beat them late-game bosses (uber variations included) and it's just kind of meh now. No real point to it, probably going to wait for new Grim Dawn expansion.

    Regretfuly Grim Dawn bored me a lot more and a lot quicker. (250 + hours? ) I mostly love it more than PoE but some areas really bore me...

    im thinking about doing RF life trickster with apep slumber. Sadly not ssf as golden rule jewel is holding me back.
    Any idea what is my best bet on applying a large number of weak poisons on enemies? Preferably on cwdt but self cast would do.

    Ok, I have finally fully switched to Blade Vortex Indigon Trickster, my end game plan from the start of the league. Only thing missing is a 6L Cloak of Defiance (got 5l now) but with Ex value being crazy right now I am not happy to pay 5ex for one and I have already put 600+ fusings into trying to 6l the one I am currently using. 6L is not even needed for dps (I can get close to 1 mil dps in boss fights now) but more because of quality of life. With 6L I can spend mana faster with less casts of Blade Vortex so to buff my damage from Indigon abilities.

    With 5400 life and 5500 mana I got over 9000 ehp and between regen and leech I recover 2/3 of my max life and mana per second. In addition I got Acrobatics and Phase Acrobatics and don't even get hit often.

    And this is exactly the point where you should sit back a while and play some Super Mario World to relax.

    lets say im in SSF and can deliver 3 curses max by being cool occultist. What is best way to deliver them since obviously 3 blasphemies wont work? Any way besides 5L cast on hit?

    EDIT: to be clear im fine with self casting, just want to cast it once to deliver it all. Some big aoe fast cast spell I assume but didnt look much into which one specifically. herald is nice as its passive, but it doesnt cover too well and id be losing on extra chaos dmg

    EDIT2: or maybe do it in the midle by running 1 curse on blasphemy and rest 2 on herald?
