    Health flasks don't do shit for CI, do they? Is there an emergency ES restoration?

    Correct, health pots do nothing if you are CI.

    Vaal discipline can be an effective emergency button if you have decent recharge stats.

    Vaal grace is also a pretty great emergency option.

    Vaal Discipline, Veiled mod which restores ES/Mana on Focus

    I always run a sulphur flask and Zealots Oath, 6% is a decent amount of sustain. Sorrow of the Divine if you're for some reason not over by ZO (but I always seem to want the mana reservation passives and Spiritual Aid on CI builds). Stacking regen with CI becomes kinda mandatory in HC to combat the death by a thousand cuts thing that can happen when you just can't keep from getting hit for 2.5 seconds (or get out of burning ground and other garbage)

    There are various ascendancy notables which restore ES over time. Depending on how you define "emergency" Occultist can keep you alive through a lot. Get a Beast Fur Shawl and all the recharge on the tree and a Xirgil's Crank and stack to 60% block. Congratulations you now recharge 7k ES per second after blocking. Or go Soul Strike and just don't get hit.

    oh, gimme some time
    show me the foothold from which I can climb
    yeah, when I feel low
    you show me a signpost for where I should go

    I feel like at this point I mostly use health flasks for chaos damage, and staunching.

    If you came up playing life it will be funny for a good while that you keep hitting the life flask button when shit goes sideways. If you are playing Occultist a good response it to hit phasing, get out of the fray, and wait for the MASSIVE ES recovery to trigger (you can reduce the time with a 2 regal enchant on rings).

    I dropped my Life flasks just to see what would happen, and rather than an unfortunate run in with some vaal constructs, did alright. I think I'm ready to switch.

    Get a basalt and granite flask. Put staunching on one and whatever else on the other.

    Big hint: Chill and freeze are your worst enemies with CI. You have trouble avoiding hits to get that regen kicking. I'd suggest a Dream Fragments or a flask that last a very long time with Of Heat on it.

    Make. Time.

    Right now I've got a staunching, warding, and heating.

    I died to Innocence which is God's way of telling me to take a break and polish off the golf clubs (or read Heidegger). Of course dying to Innocence meant I died to something else such that I was leveling again and that is true. I died to panic when getting chunked by the lighthouse boss. I was in no danger but logged out (2 clicks on xbox). Unfortunately I was also spamming my flasks out of habit. On console this is not good. Instead of logging I ended up in some menu while watching my life go boom. Popping phase run and pushing the left stick in any direction was 100% chance for survival. This will happen again. Memento mori.

    Dream Fragments means to never have to heat again, if you can spare the ring slot.

    It's an ES's best friend.

    Came up with a Grey Spire/Divine Ire build with 700k Shaper damage I'm gonna field, with an endgame intent of Disintegrator tipping it near a cool mil if I can manage a lot of Shaper rares.

    Should be interesting to see how it plays out.

    Surrealitycheck guided me into a great Storm Burst build with insane damage. Trickster abusing how Gain #% Non-Chaos/Elemental Damage as Chaos Damage works with conversions, so that slightly over half of my damage is from chaos. At level 80 I was running T15 maps.

    If a movement doesn't have someone that can sit down opposite those in a position of power and strike a deal, how can that movement achieve success?

    Or possibly run winter orb, I need to know if this wand I have is op first

    I'm still unsure of the final build! I get a basic tree mapped and gear down (eschewing specifics on rares because RNG gonna RNG).

    Like I've already decided to Orb Of Storms for power charges and Conductivity spreading (and proccing OO of course), but first it'll be an Impresence so my MoM gets a bigger chunk of mana from Blasphemy/Conductivity.

    Blue Dreams seem to be my biggest source of Chaos as extra, but I think that'll cut into my damage from flat added phys or lightning (I'm at 100% phys to lightning conversion at the moment with Divine Ire).

    Getting a 6L blue str chest is gonna be the biggest bastard of them all, so I'll probably go str/int chest first.

    Make. Time.

    Here's what I'm running:

    Gear: Disintegrator, Incandescent Heart(20%), Eber's Unification (8%), Shaper Amulet with Gain 16-20% of Non-Chaos as Extra Chaos Damage

    Storm Burst - Cold-to-Fire - Infused Channeling - Physical to Lightning - Concentrated Effect - (Efficacy or Elemental Focus for 6L)
    Wave of Conviction - CWDT - Curse on Hit - Elemental Weakness - Increased Duration - (Lightning Golem for eventual 6L)
    Orb of Storms - PCoC - Arcane Surge (lvl 7) - Increased AoE - Put in helm for increased aoe on Void Gaze
    Leap Slam - Faster Attacks - Fortify - Endurance Charge on Melee Stun

    Here's a link to the tree.

    My tooltip in Hideout unbuffed at level 84 is 110K. With charges and flask up, I'm hitting north of 300k tooltip. It's about half elemental, half chaos damage. Also, I did levels 72 to 82 in just a few hours yesterday. The total cost for gear and gems has been about 3 ex, which includes a near perfect spell phys disintegrator 5L and a very well rolled incandescent heart. With CI I'm sitting at about 5K ES right now, which is low, but if I'm not being one shot I'm invincible because of the massive and strong amounts of ES leech I have. I face tanked all four of red elder's guardians and killed him with no issues this afternoon.

    I sprung the 5ex for a Manor. My Cadiro deal was 250 coins for a stack of chisels. This is going to be a long ass challenge. I did get a Seven-League Step though, so I'm technically only out 1-2ex.

    So I've been running Clarity, Discipline, Herald of Ash, and an Essence Worm Hatred. It leaves me with ~80 unreserved mana, which is enough to cast all of my skills, but Clarity can't actually keep up with DI on mana cost, so I can't cast it forever, and I can't really upgrade Clarity cause I'm going to run out of available mana rq. I'm not sure if I should just give up HoA or Hatred, and or drop the Essence Worm? Or maybe try and grab some of the reduced mana reserved nodes? I think I can reach a couple before I cap out, but it'd be slow going, probably spec out of a little bit of damage to reach them and then pick the damage back up as I level.

    This is a pretty good utility for picking your aura setups: https://poe.mikelat.com/#

    If you run double Essence Worm you can put Disc in one, Hatred in the other, then Herald + Clarity on mana for like 95% of your pool. It's probably ideal in the long run to eventually drop the Worm for a dps ring and either cut Clarity and use a mana pot (seething antifreeze is nice) or cut one of the dps auras and run a dps pot.

    I would pick up Arcane Will for 2 points in Witch starting area. Mana regen scales off of your mana pool, so you're gaining mana pool, flat mana regen, and %mana regen. Alternatively, get an amulet with %mana regen in place of your current rarity roll. You're amulets kinda garbo anyway.

    If a movement doesn't have someone that can sit down opposite those in a position of power and strike a deal, how can that movement achieve success?
