Yea, lol. The closest I come to death is when I wander out of my swirly death circle to grab some loot and forget that everything isn't quite dead yet.

I ended up spec'ing into CI as I hit Act 8. I'm on 10 now and no issues. Not much of anything does enough damage to even knock my shield down a quarter.

The only issue I've had so far is fighting for enough dex to level my support gems. I ended up grabbing the 30pt node on the way up to CI and that seemed to fix it. I'll see where my gear ends up when I hit maps and maybe re-spec the point.
It's tons of fun. I love the build. I'm glad you're liking it.

That +30 Dex node will last you a good while. An amulet is easy to get high Dex on as well.

Hey Weltfremd,

I have to make a video for this guide and my RF one as well. It'll be done as quick as possible after this holiday weekend. I'll post a reply on the guide once it's done.

In the meantime, check out the links in my signature. You can get the last 14 days of my broadcasts with the Mixer link, and I post all my broadcasts on YouTube.

To answer your question directly though, clearing is really easy in this build. When a cursed enemy explodes it clears the whole screen. I've been trying to clear out all of my 3.5 maps (I play standard) and I started with all my white maps. So my broadcast will show you a couple of the lower-tier maps. But you'll get a good idea as to how the build works. But I'll post a high-tier map shortly for all to see.

Welp! Nothing like having a good amount of uninterrupted time at the right time. I added a video example of the build. You can find it here: https://youtu.be/KQVLivc4QPs and of course in the Videos, Path of Building, URLs, Loot Filter section.

Thanks for your patience.

It's sweet to have a Tabula. I also found leveling this character stress free. Even before you get Vortex...there were tons of strong options for the beginning of the game. I hope you enjoy taking the witch through maps. I loved it. Hopefully the Occultist didn't change much with the Ascendancy changes coming in 3.7.

Thanks for the post! I'm glad you're liking it.

Just wanted to stop by and give thanks for this build and your others.
A first time PoE player on the PS4 and hooked.
I originally started off playing your Slo Mo Zombies in SSF and really enjoyed that. I have now started playing this character in the standard Synthesis league and enjoying it even more.
Suits my playstyle perfectly and the guide is easy to follow.
Just made it to Act V and hoping to get a bunch of playtime in this weekend and progress.
My gear is currently garbage and not able to accommodate all the gems, so I have weekend goals!

Thanks shirt10!

I appreciate the compliment! I'm glad you've liked the guides/builds! PoE is SOOOOO fun when the drops mean something. I love the console version too. As a new player, if you have any suggestions/feedback for the guide/build, please don't be shy to let me know.

Have fun leveling! Have fun playing this weekend! Thanks again for taking the time to be encouraging.

Hey, I'm officially back with an update.
So I got my gears to house all of the CwDTs and CoHSs together and things got beautiful! I did 2nd lab at lvl 52 and switched to CI and running memory maps is such a fun now.

You're gonna laugh but I didn't like flame dash so I swapped to phase run. It just seems perfect for that panic run away or rather for I-need-to-get-past-this-mob-blocking-my-way in the narrow passages/hallways lol.

I have two questions:
1. Just curious, would Pain Attunement (30% more spell damage on low life) work with CI or 1 life is treated as full life and therefore is not low?
2. What do you think of housing 2 cold skills and 2 of the corresponding curses attached to one CwDT and CoHS on a 6L weapon? Would that still work?

Thanks :)

Don't start with Snail

Great questions!

First off, I LOVE Phase Run as a skill. Keep in mind that using Phase Run uses up your Frenzy Charges. It's no big deal but the charges give bonus damage. A Quartz flasks will give you phasing but not the bonus movement speed.

Q1: CI is not considered Low Life. So nothing that benefits Low Life will benefit this build. But that's a good observation!

Q2: One skill can apply multiple curses at once when connected with Curse on Hit. So with a 6 link weapon you could do CwDT 1, *spell*, Curse on Hit, then 3 curses. You would then have lots of space to explore with other gems. Including a CwDT 1 linked to a Phase Run 3 and Immortal Call 3 :-).

Good thinking. Good post :-). (And I'm glad the build is so much fun for you!)
