[3.22] CoC Forbidden Rite Build | Occultist | Trial of the Ancestors | Path of Exile 3.22

Hey guys, cast on crit forbidden rite occultist build is here. Forbidden Rite is a chaos spell that fires a projectile near your cursor, as well as additional projectiles for each enemy within range.

Build Cost
- High Budget: +50 div

Before asking a question please read.

Mana: How do I sustain mana?
- Non-Channelling Skills have # to Total Mana Cost mod on rings
- 1% reduced Mana Cost of Skills per 10 Devotion mod on Militant Faith
- +14 Mana gained for each Enemy hit by Attacks (Gemini Claw)
- 18% reduced Mana Cost of Skills if you've been Hit Recently (Boots)

Critical Strike Chance: Aim for %100 crit chance.
- Power charges
- Diamond Flask
- Any Flask with crit chance mod
- Ascendancy, Skill tree

Cooldown recovery: We need at least %14 for this build. I got it from awakened gem.
- Awakened Cast on Critical (minimum lvl 3)
- Shaper/Crusader belt
- Shaper/Crusader boots

Accuracy: We need %100 hit chance.
Hits can't be Evaded mod solves the problem

Aps: With 14% cooldown recovery optimal aps for cyclone is 7.57. Don't go over it. Cyclone's aps is 7.54 with this setup.
- 26% inc attack speed, Claw
- 5% inc attack speed, Quick Getaway
- 8% inc attack speed, Repeater
- 20% inc attack speed, Onslaught

If you wanna play with more or less attack speed check out the link:

Militant Faith: Dominus to get Inner Conviction keystone.
- 1% reduced Mana Cost of Skills per 10 Devotion
- 4% increased Area Damage per 10 Devotion
(Check the jewel on pob before you buy it.)

Leveling: It's possible to level with forbidden rite but you'll need chaos res, recoup nodes on tree, it's too much work for leveling. I recommend you level with spellslinger ed/contagion with 6l blight setup until level 68 or 70. Leveling gems and trees are in the video.

Leveling Uniques:
- Tabula Rasa
- Poet's Pen
- Praxis (x2)
- Goldrim
- Lochtonial Caress
- Belt of the Deciever
- Karui Ward

(Footage is from 3.20)

IM playing regular crit/power charge stacking forbidden rite. I'm going to reroll into this

I have ashes of the stars though..Is it worth keeping or do I just sell it?


Update: sold it. No need to answer this.

Tried this build, really like so far.

Why have Aspect of Spider on boots if not using?
hello, how do you replenish bottles on bosses, I have charges on crit, but the bottles are empty, crit is 100%
Love this build, however, does anyhow this build handle stun immunity?
Can you elaborate a bit more on the leveling playstyle, particularly when you get to lvl 24 and swap over to ED/Contagion spellslinger? I'm assuming you walk around and frenzy things as your trigger for them, but it just feels awful, I've got the ED in a 4 link, and the contagion in a 3 link just how you suggested it, and it seems to take forever to kill things. Am I missing something here?

Edit: once you level up the gems a little and make sure you arent out of mana/dont miss your ED missile on a target it performs MUCH better.
