    • Magicka: 64
    • Health: 0
    • Stamina: 0

    • Food:
      • Ghastly Eye Bowl (preferred if you have enough health)
      • Witchmother's Potent Brew (or Clockwork Citrus Filet if you are struggling with something)

      • we dont need to splurge on the expensive potions if running critical surge, we get those buffs from our skills instead. However if you are running the two pet setup it may be worth it to use the Essence of Spell Power potions when tackling difficult content
