3.3 LL VRF - Anyone make 100% Up time Low Life VAAL RF Occultist Successfully

Hey Guys. Looking for a perma uptime VAAL RF Build for witch. Started one myself and want to see if anyone else has a similar build. Looking for as close to 100% as can get. Have max rolled Soul Ripper already. Also looking for your pros and cons on your build. Thanks

Depends on the density and how fast you want to go. In a decently laid out map it's 100% uptime with no problems. The only problem I have with my current setup is going from room to room in the temple, about half the time I end up having to scorching ray the first pack because there wasn't quite enough mobs in the last room to refill my VRF a 2nd time.

I followed the guide on the front page https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/2167609

I'm saving up for an Apep's Supremacy right now as it will be a huge quality of life upgrade.

Thats my problem now. Even with Soul Ripper I find myself needing to SR a lot. I can get Vaal RF up for two uses one after another but after that I find myself SR a whole pack if not more to get my souls back. This is also with two 20% Vaal Skill duration jewels. I will admit when I do have Vaal RF up things just die but having to use SR to get souls is lame and makes this very clunky. My biggest complaint is multi tier bosses where you lose your souls and have to spend a atrocious amount of time getting them back to pop vaal RF. Apeps was a great addition to the build especially to just not take bleed damage anymore. But i find myself still going back to my Double Shim Vaal Arc totems build. I feel like im just missing something to make this build not clunky besides levels lol. Here is mine right now.

Your profile is set to private.

I'm hoping as I get more playtime with this build under my belt and get more comfortable I can make it less clunky. It has plenty of DPS and survivability, hopefully it's just me not being very proficient with it yet. The phased boss fights rely pretty much solely on SR, my only idea is to get a double corrupted Balefire or switch SR to the 5/6 link and get a pair of shaper gloves with mods for righteous fire for a pseudo 5/6 link.
There is a guide for a CI version of a 100% ish uptime Vaal RF, swapping in a shaves could probably make it LL if you invest properly.

said guide,
If you self cursed with temp chains i think 100% would be pretty easy. i dunno how fast vaal rf takes down bosses though,
