You can refer to this build:
(some SP left unused so you can adjust it)
not sure if hk already got the nerf or what but in kr, there was a nerf on a bunch of skills, and lightning bolt's mp regain was nerfed by a bunch, it's really not worth keeping anymore unless you decide to change to hm, so it could be dropped(or at least brought to 1, and you can use those points in the other patk passive or something)
vp's second passive gives her a %-chance to get 100 more mp to use when you awaken, and it'll last for the entire duration
at maxed level with three beads, it's 3*33%, so it's essentially always 100 more mp
the other active i don't know too much about, but it does keep mobs together pretty well
