As I’m saving some of the more interesting and or simply build-enabling I noticed that both of these items sort of revolve around using lots and lots of mana. Since mana builds have always interested me, I figured I could make another character built around utilizing these two items. The question of course is: how would you guys best utilize these two uniques? Kitava’s Thirst gives 30% chance to trigger socketed spell(s) every time I skill with mana cost >= 100, while the Cane provides a power charge for every 200 mana I use. The interested gamers can buy poe exalted orbs from those professional online gaming houses in the most affordable cost.
I like the way youre thinking here but would like to point out a few options to consider.
1. Voidbringer- 40-80 percent increased mana cost of skills, huge amounts of increased spell crit, decent ES, and +1 level of socketed elemental gems.
2. Scolds Bridle- it’s not kitava’s (and definitely doesnt look as cool) but it would allow you to puke spells out of literally every gem slot you have rather than just the 4 link in your helm. It causes you to take damage based on how much mana you spend. You can then put cast on damage taken + spells in every gem socket on your gear, making you a spell puking machine. This obviously isnt necessary but its something to consider.
3. Zerphi’s Last Breath- a flask that grants life based on the mana you spend. If youre already spending a shit ton, this can help with sustain. This is especially good when paired with scolds bridle.
4. Pledge of hands- again its not the staff you were wanting to use, but it does allow a 7 link with insane spell puking potential and it provides increased mana, which you very well could need. It’s totally not necessary but it could be helpful.
Since the Cane provides easy access to power charges, I’d guess this build should get a lot of them and could also be a Cast on Crit build for even more spell-spam. As the build needs to stack a lot of mana and regen to keep going. First ascendancy option that came to mind was Hierophant, but Sanctuary of Thought has massive mana cost reductions that would be counter-productive for this build. The second thought I had was Ascendant, going for Elementalist and Inquisitor for better Shock, Elemental Penetration and other boons.
