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. 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.
For what it’s worth, I don’t expect this kind of build to be crazy good – I’d venture a guess that neither of the uniques are likely to be considered particularly good. That being said, I’m interested in getting as much mileage out of them as possible.
I like the way youre thinking here but would like to point out a few options to consider.
1) 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.
2) Scolds Bridle- it’s not kitava’s 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) Voidbringer- 40-80 percent increased mana cost of skills, huge amounts of increased spell crit, decent ES, and +1 level of socketed elemental gems.
If I were you, Id probably use these 4 items with a man spell in the pledge of hands. It doesnt really matter what spell it was so long as it could proc cwdt. That or id stick with your original plan of using kitavas and staff of unravelling, and have my main skill be a lightning warp or flame dash that costs as much as possible, then warp around the map, chugging spells out of your helm as you go.
