[3.6] The "Ultimate" SOULREND / ESSENCE DRAIN Occultist Build. LEAGUE STARTER #1! > UBER Elder done!

I did 25 challenges In Betrayal and I was playing a variation of one of your builds (Lancing Steel Poison PF, based on your Toxic rain PF), and I've learned everything in this concept from you. You are always a reliable source of information, and I like taking your PoB links and test many variations. You are doing very good job helping newer/returning players to push their limit further and further with each new league, so please keep doing what you do and don't mind elitists..

For this build, planning on league starter, I had come to almost a similar tree for pure CI.

I'm still waiting for gem details and patch notes, but I assume both spells will have area modifier, which should be good, I guess?

Also the new DoT aura!

The Homing curve can make more than more than one projectile hit same target with one cast.. So we need to find if Soul rend going to shotgun bosses with LMP/GMP/Volley/Fork or if one cast = one DoT no matter what. because I have a feeling it could be the 'Toxic Rain' of spells!

And I hope PoB gets to show us the effect of Faster Casting speed, because it might be easy way to scale dps?

P.S: A simple wand with:
* Spell damage
* Minion damage (From cheap Bound Fossil)

Then adds:
* {crafted} Non-Ailment Chaos Damage over Time Multiplier

Will be almost as strong as multi-crafted wand for much cheaper/easier to craft.

LMAO that fucking title
I like Synthesis. Deal with it.
I suppose we could start the league with a ED build. It looks pretty strong now with that buff

Contagion
Mana Cost at gem level 1 is now 5 (was 11).
Mana Cost at gem level 20 is now 20 (was 28).
Can now affect up to 40 targets per cast (from 20).

Essence Drain
Mana Cost at gem level 1 is now 8 (was 9).
Mana Cost at gem level 20 is now 23 (was 27).
Now has a cast time of 0.7 seconds (from 0.75).
Now explodes on impact, applying the Essence Drain debuff to enemies in a small radius. This explosion deals no hit damage. As a result of this change, Essence Drain now has the Area gem type.
Now deals 9 to 14 Chaos damage at gem level 1 (from 6 to 9) and 433 to 649 Chaos damage at gem level 20 (from 334 to 501).
Now deals 31.3 base Chaos damage per second at gem level 1 (from 21.3) and 1503.2 base Chaos damage per second at gem level 20 (from 1159).

It's super fucking strong now. I killed uber elder yesterday with like 300k dps and it was not very hard tbh. Now it's even more dps and another DPS aura.

Wow both my options for starter builds are builds of yours: specters or SR/ED.
3.3: Lapidary lens is the worst challenge I have seen in six years and a half of POE.
3.4: hold my beer.
3.5: nah fuck this grindy rotation buy off trade 820 shit
3.6 Makes 3.5 look like a masterpiece and 3.7 like their best work yet.

I've been working really hard to the last year haha. Over 15 active builds now!
Overall now it's the hardest time with the pob update, most skill trees are going down so i have to update them all :(

Hi and thanx!!
Unfortunately soulrend will not stack with itself, but it will stack with ED and other chaos spells too!
