[3.0] Champion Caustic Arrow [Uber Izzaro Viable]

Introduction
Hi this is one of the first few builds I'm posting, this build revolves around the skill Caustic Arrow with Champion being the ascendancy chosen.
Currently having alot of fun playing it and decided to share, do leave me any feedback to help improve the build.
This build scales exponentially well with levels and gem levels.

Ascendancy
Champion and why?
1.Easy access to 75% increased damage by cruel lab completion.
2.Permanent Fortify (20% damage reduction from hits).
3.Armour and Evasion % nodes that scale well with build items.

Estimated Build Stats
50% Physical Damage Reduction
40% Chance to Evade Attacks
60k DoT
5000 and above Max Life (Can be adjusted to be higher by sacrificing damage)

Bandits:Kill All
Mana Problems? - Pick up Primal Spirit
For this build you want to start by grabbing Life nodes early even more so if you are running HC.
Once you've done that start grabbing the chaos/damage over time nodes.

Honestly yes, I managed Act 1-10 with no deaths. With that being said, you would want to tweak it for more Life nodes and give up some damage.

As for leveling guide I'm working on it now, will be up shortly.
