This build has suited me from the start of the story mode and through the endgame (currently still developing this character).
I have seen a handfull of Staff only based builds and I have tried them out on my current character but I was somewhat disappointed. Please bare in mind that I am by no means an advanced player but I have played Wolcen since release in 2020 and I have loved every moment of it, Always stuck with a staff based character and I think that this is a great foundation for anyone who is in a similar position to me.
I am currently level 77 (still going) and quite easily go through expeditions of level 148+ - I am still not done with completing all the currently available expedition levels either.
This is my build: https://share.wolcen.dev/s/RtbaulZfOV
When going against enemies, it's a medium to close range combat. I do rely on the 5th spell unlock for healing (great for companions too, I feel they're underrated!). Damage is done through Anomaly, Winter's Grasp for control and mainly using Solarflare (Shadow damage) and Consuming Embers (Shadow damage).
As to my gear, well, it's a work in process, as the build of my character is mainly around occult damage, I have heavily invested in Aether and Shadow damage to my gear (and attacks and spells). So my gear is a mix of Rare, Legendary and Unique items. I have recently been trying to focus on building some resitances with my gear too, I wont specify exactly what my gear is here but if you guys want to know, please comment and I will happily list it
