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

I made a first draft on PoB : https://pastebin.com/rGGmZWqG

I choose to take only 3 curses cause i don't know which one i could add.
Please reply if you see something wrong or if you have a suggestion.

Edit : too many mistakes in this PoB

Maybe Bane will be a good option with a 3 curses settings. not sure about ED/Soulrend maybe will be better to go Wicked Ward and Vile Bastion on the Ascendancy to get more ES as we are CI ?

Wow both my options for starter builds are builds of yours: specters or SR/ED.

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 :(

Thank you for what you do and the work you put into developing these easy to follow builds. I know this one isn't totally complete yet with the new information still trickling in.

I am an old ARPG player with limited time on my hands to fully immerse myself in the deep parts of this game. Taking your guides and following them really makes playing the game more enjoyable.

Thanks again man.

Hi,

To increase survivability in HC, would a Xirgil's Crank work with this build ? or will it lower the dps too much ?
Hello if possible, can you make a leveling tree, instead of straight end game, will make it so much easier

Same, I do like the haunt skill. But also loved the specters. choices choices.
So is the idea of this build to use Soul Rend to clear now and ED just for single-target help? Does it still use contagion for DoT chains or does it depend solely on Soul Rend?

I like the idea of playing with the new skill, but I'm not convinced it'll be better than the huge satisfying chain-reactions we got with old ED+Contagion.

I am not convinced either.
We need to see how much is the HIT damage and the DOT damage on soulrend. This is the main question. if the HIT is strong than it can potentially leech some ES at a decent speed and is like a dark pact of some kind.. If DoT is strong than it can potentially replace ED
