[3.0] Theorycrafted Self-Cast Dark Pact Berserker - 3.7mil DPS on Shaper

NOTE: This is theorycrafted - gem did not exist in Beta so no testing was done.

6k Life, 1.3k ES

We use 2 golems (1 to proc Arcane Surge - can be done with frenzy too, 1 for Curse on Hit)

PoB: https://pastebin.com/2auqGK7B

4L: Dark Pact, Spell Echo, Controlled Destruction, Concentrated Effect (IAoE for maps) - Note: leveling Faster Casting can be used for QoL
5L: Void Manipulation
6L: Added Chaos Damage

Other Gem Setups:
Wither - Faster Casting - Spell Totem - Increased Duration

Orb of Storms - PCoC - Increased Critical Strikes

Lightning Golem - Arcane Surge - Faster Attacks

Flame Golem - Curse on Hit - Assassin's Mark


Defenses a Little Lacking - although at this kill speed our offense is the main defense, our life leech/mana leech is so high that as long as we don't get one shot (or frozen/stunned for enough time to die) we should out-heal all damage.

Defense Setup:
CWDT - Immortal Call - Increased Duration - Vaal Haste

I am debating how I could possible add in a movement setup (Flame Dash or Whirling Blades or whatever) into the build... probably only on weapon-swap.

PoB update 1.4.56 changed Shaper DPS down to ~3.0mil (because of the "debuff" tag being added to wither and hence supposedly not affecting Shaper).

For standard bosses the DPS is still about 3.6mil, and for trash it's 5.1mil

Thanks... could provide all kinds of BS explanations/excuses... but so much going on today.
Funny as there is no option for me to delete this post... re-posted in Marauder forum.
