[3.6] Death's Oath CI Occultist

I'm not sure if i like blight altogether.

I mean, damage of it is garbage. Complete and utter garbage. If not talking about alleopathy, it doesn't even have any redeeming quality.

In previous patches it was must have only because spreading rot was insane to boost all ours other chaos skills. No only it was entire 50% more damage dealt, it was applied by just a single tap, not standing still for 5 sec waiting while something is going to kill you. Withering apply was always a job for withering totems, which is safe, easy and don't cost 2 entire jewel socket.
In that patch... well, even without "withering presence", i would rather just make double withering totem.

The only point why i still "think about it", is because we still need some channeling skill for "infused channeling" activation. But blight definitely will not be part of the final build for me, i would rather put some strange garbage like "charged dash".

tl;dr - blight have short range, garbage damage, almost inexistant utility. The only reason to even use it is alleopathy which gives us pseudo-5link for that garbage, that even with absurd lvl that it grant still garbage... If i need 2 entire jewel socket to make it even remotely usable, that skill can go to hell, i will use withering totems.

Pretty awesome build, I've started one myself in Synthesis.

Lethal Assault seems like a good node to grab though, no?

Yes you're right but I can't see anything to drop to grab it. Maybe the es node above Arcane focus, but I think I value ES above the damage. You could drop one of the reservation nodes near Sovereignty if you don't need it.

Thx for the detailed guide. just one question:

Does "Breath of the Council" + "Apep's Supremacy" will be better for this build?

Breath of the Council? No. Apep's might be a good idea, unless you can get a really good ES shield.

What do you think about using Carnage Hearth as an "intermediary" amulet? I got a quite decent DO drop today and was considering using it for a new alt =3
I came back to Death's Oath for my league starter in Synthesis. Damn those buffs made a huge difference. I went a different way, focusing on map clearing speed in t11-16. Was a lot of fun, sunk a few hundred hours into theory. Finished a little over 200k aura dps, 8k es. Felt immortal even in 8 mod red tier maps.

Apeps is a great shield, but the ES on it sucks. So I swapped back to just using the watcher's eye to be immune to bleed with malevolence so I had an extra flask slot, Rumi's OP. Sorrow's Divine flask is hilariously useful at the beginning since I didn't go to left side of tree at all, even opting to drop a curse for more flexible theory. Intuitive leap jewel so I maintained 4 frenzy and 3 endurance charges. Soooo much fun. Here's mine, Synthesis league finished build. Goodluck!

I added Energy from Within under the Melding nodes for extra ES.

Could be useful for those that want to use grey spire but feel like they need more ES.

Most of the affixes on it are useless for this build, but the all res and stats are useful.

That's an option but I feel like its not really worth it for 300-400 es or so.

Can we share reddit links?

I haven't been using the 2 spreading rot jewels (just 1 for me). But this is interesting, it doesn't seem to be doubling wither.
