Path of Exile Guide: Witch Example Builds

Path of Exile is a very in-depth game with a steep learning curve and describes character categories, and beginners often get confused with many of the game’s mechanics and systems. In this guide today, we have updated the Ranger Example Builds. We previously updated the Marauder Example and Ranger Builds guide, which can be viewed here.


Witch is a typical mage in this game. Her high intelligence level has a positive impact on mana resources and energy shields. You can place your skill gems in various wands that require close combat.

How to play

The gameplay is mainly based on long-distance fighting. The damage caused by the spell lets you kill more and more enemies. Witch is not a very resistant character, so don’t get excited about the power of magic. There’s a downside-some enemy that might partially or completely resist the element you choose. You can choose to develop summoning skills, but this build method focuses on the power of the character rather than the summoning.

Passive skills

Witch, will develop spell damage, ice, and attributes. Using wands is also important because they will put our skill gems to use. The scheme shows the beginnings of character development – it defines initial passives (7) and shows the best path towards them.

Active skills

If you build the witch according to these instructions, you should provide her with skill gems that are related to intelligence, and don’t collide with the character’s weapon. Make collecting skill gems your highest priority.



The character activates an aura, which speeds up the mana regeneration of him and his allies. This strategy usually causes you to run out of mana-using this ability can give you a faster mana recovery and thus reach a higher level in battle.
