I finally got a 5L on Talisman and I am wondering if I should be using Added Lightning or PCoC. With 5 Power Charges my Arc is about 500 DPS less than with Added Lightning. I don't have quality on my PCoC is that hurting the gem value by a lot?
I have been really enjoying this build so far as this is the first time I have played Arc.
After playing around with each, this may be yet another build that the tool tip isn't very indicative of the performance. Things seem to die faster even with 'lower' damage.

@Askers That's how the build usually plays out. With added lightning you get a lot of tooltip damage but it doesn't necessarily increase your damage realistically. With power charges up your crit chance is increasingly higher which allows your damage to be multiplied by your crit multiplier (hence the name of the stat right). With added lightning your base damage is higher but you're not critting as much, essentially lowering your realistic damage.

dear op, can u explain why we dont keep the lightning pen when we get a call of brotherhood?
isnt it 50% cold 50% lightning? whats the difference

He explained it earlier, basically freeze duration is related to cold damage done and because how the build works, we want to freeze as much as possible cause after we will auto shock from ring. So thats why the cold pen choice was my understanding

Imagine this build with Deadly Infusion from the Assassin tree in Ascendancy. 2 Void Battery and this would give this build +4.5% base crit or 95% crit chance without even using Assassian's mark :D

Hey, great guide and fun build.
I want to ask about the value of the Sovereignty wheel(aura mana reserve reduction).
I just feel like it's a big investment to spend 5 points for 14% mana reserve reduction and a 10% increase on auras that only work for clarity. Wouldn't it be better to spend the points on max mana if you're looking for mana, since that would increase your mana regen aswell?
I've tried looking through your answers to questions in this thread, but couldn't find anything revolving around the sovereignty wheel. Apologies if it has already been answered.
Hope you can help me :)
