[3.4] The journey to the ultimate Occultist SRS

In delve, I will start Occultist with SRS with the goal to 40/40 and do all content. Here is my incursion journey.

Why SRS? Why Occultist?

SRS get huge buff in 3.4. You can only get 105% minion damage from passive tree before, but right now it is 255, more than double. Second, SRS was suffering from low accuracy a lot. With command of pit, SRS get 1000 flat accuracy, together with minion accuracy nodes on tree, SRS should have more than enough accuracy now even against the very end game bosses.
With these two changes, SRS is likely have 4 times damage than before. SRS was a decent skill already, How about 4 times now???

Still not convinced? Let's check the defence Occultist provides.
We go ES, with 304 max ES and 245% ES from tree, and occultist nature lankiness with ES. It is like playing summoner build but with 30% ES per second leech during mapping. How awesome it that? For bosses, Wicked wand and soulstrike quiver, you can almost instantly get ES recharge started. Throw in some incandescent heart, then feel the immortality.

Did I also mention that "Increases and Reductions to Minion Attack Speed also affect you" and flesh offering to get full attack speed bonus?


Tree

here are some key stats.
+304 to maximum Energy Shield
245% increased maximum Energy Shield
Minions deal 237% increased Damage
Minions have 40% increased Attack Speed
160% increased Minion Accuracy Rating
Final Tree



Leveling Tree

Life version and respec to ES asap (can go hybrid and then CI).
Leveling tree


Gems

Usual stuff,
SRS, minion damage, melee splash (empower, ruthless), multi-strike, melee physical damage, WED, elemental focus if color is not right.
Auras: Hatred, haste, clarity, discipline.
