I have another question about the empower/enlighten level 4
Is it a problem to use level 3 until I get enough currency to buy the level 4 ones?

Wasted all my currency on the bow crafting

Empower 4 is just another level to your TR. Good to have but not necessary.
With Enlighten 4 you will be able to use grace/malevolence and discipline(and clarity) depending on your -mana/reduced mana reserved setup.
I'm on an enlighten 3 and absolutely fine with malevolence/dicipline/flesh and stone/ clarity setup. Leaving me with 122 mana on a 13 mana cost TR.

Guys, isn't better to go for Corruption, taking the 3 chaos damage nodes before it, and in case taking Potency of Will with the oils?

The other two 10% skill duration nodes are worth the 7 points (or 3, from Foresight) to reach them?

Ok, I think you're on to something here. I ran this through my tree, then pushed the numbers through the calculation TypicalDemon posted for dps calcs, and my DPS went from 6.1 million to 6.46 million.

I lost a bit of life leech, but only 85, and about 64 energy shield, but I gain 5% to all elemental resists. Oils are slightly cheaper for this as well.

My skill tree for level 95 looks like so: www.poeurl.com/cByE

I may dip into the regret orbs and give this a try.

Lol since when toxic rain was fotm for legion?
Essence drain + contagion, frostbolt + vaal ice nova, tornado shot were blowing it out of the water for monolith opening, and for timeless conflict dot specs weren't that good either, plus you had to abuse headhunter for best effects on builds like cyclone or again tornado shot.

Toxic rain will never clear 3 screens with 1 click or be a burst boss killer, it's a good levelling skill and nice middle of the ground end game skill, still for facerolling blights it's probably easiest to just roll a necro and let your minions mop up blights while you afk.

Don't feed the trolls.

On a positive note, I did the respec I mentioned a couple posts back, pathing to Corruption and using oils to get Potency of Will instead. Mapping seems about the same, no problems with surviving, and I haven't run into anything yet that causes bosses to live long enough to worry about with either tree.

I picked up a new amulet instead of overwriting the annoited mod on my current one, in case I want to switch back. Nothing terribly special:

    Finally bit the bullet and finished out the craft on my bow. Hilariously, I don't get to try it out right away, Real Life (tm) is intruding, I have to take the wife out shopping first! :)
