A generic autobomber.
Please note that you can level this build just like cutedog_ explains in his video (which is expensive) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAx4oDAM4io

This is a speedclear build.
The helmet is mandatory if you can afford it.
Good budget version is tempest binding

I use haste instead of hatred with onslaught on kill watcher's eye for more clear

Hatred + watcher's eye hatred jewel is a overkill that does not feel nessesary if you can afford it socket hatred in the ring with watcher's eye increased crit strike chance while affected by hatred.

Zeel's amplifier is way better than a esh mirror.
We already one shot t16+ maps so....

The aoe makes the chain insane!

U can use rare boots instead of goldwyrm MANDATORY DAMAGE LEECHED AS LIFE AND MANA IF YOU'VE KILLED RECENTLY.

READ THIS OR YOU WILL FAIL THE BUILD ENTIRELY

The centerpiece of the build, without it nothing would really work.



A 5- or 6-linked The Beast Fur Shawl is needed because of 2 reasons:

1.) We need high enough mana costs so we can trigger our spells. Since the damage threshold for a Lv. 1 Cast when Damage Taken is 528, we need to deal that much damage to ourselves per cast. Because of that the minimum amount of mana our mines are allowed to cost is 126 (x4 from Scold's Bridle and x1.05 from the 5% increased damage taken mod from The Beast Fur Shawl). This also means that the Volatile Dead skill gem has to be high enough level!

2.) The second reason is the 40% increased energy shield recovery rate mod. This applies to all our regeneration from the Ascendancy, the Passive Tree and items. This helps alot to counteract the 1408 to 2047 damage per second we deal to ourselves (depending on gem level, mine laying speed and choice of Ascendancy).




The Voidbringer gloves are needed* because of the same reason we need at least a 5-link: to get our mana cost high enough. Try to get a low as possible roll on the "increased mana cost of Skills roll (preffered 40%) so you don't have too much problems sustaining mana and ES.

*Note: The Saboteur ascendancy gives us 25% reduced Mana Cost of Skills that place Mines or throw Traps which is the reason for the Voidbringer requirement. The Saboteur node from the Scion ascendancy doesn't have this effect. The resulting mana costs of a Scion 6-link are roughly equal to a Saboteur 6-link with Voidbringer and fit the requirements. This makes the Scion a good alternative option.



Watcher's eye with 29%+ mana recovery while affected by clarity is a must (maximum energy shield regen per second while affected by discipline is 2nd important NOT MANDATORY)

Atziri's foible (crazy mana regen)

At least 2 of these 3 items are required to keep up with the extreme mana costs of the build. We need to regenerate about 322 to 487 mana per second (again depending on gem level, mine laying speed and choice of Ascendancy). Note that for the boots only the enchant is important, you can play any other boots too. For the Watcher's Eye the important mod is the increased mana recovery rate while affected by Clarity. In my case I use the boot enchant and the Watcher's Eye and a rare amulet with master crafted increased mana regeneration rate. The boot enchant also helps alot with counteracting the self damage because it counts as a hit and activates the effect.


More important notes please read
Spoiler

Regeneration
Since the damage we deal to ourselves is a fixed amount, and our regeneration is apart from Stone Golem a percentage of our maximum energy shield, having more ES gives us more regeneration too. This means we want as much ES as possible on our gear. I recommend to get to atleast 6000 ES.
Since even our movement skill damages us, we cant rely on ES recharge. For that reason getting as much regen as possible is key to surviving. If you only get enough to counteract the 1408-2047 self damage you will be very vulnerable as soon as you take damage from any other source.

Self damage
Because we need to deal at least 528 self damage per cast it is important that we not only manage our mana cost accordingly, but also avoid too much physical damage mitigation. This means that Armour and any other mitigation from gear and flasks should be avoided (Pantheons are mostly ok). If your mana cost is high enough you can have a small amount physical mitigation, for example from the Pantheon, to mitigate a little of the self damage.

Corpse Generation
We place 3 mines with each cast, which each spawn 3 volatiles. This means we have to create 9 corpses per cast. This is not possible to sustain because of the charge/cooldown mechanic from the Desecrate skill, unless you were to play a staff with a 5-link Cast when Damage Taken Unearth setup with an additional Volley Support gem. In that case we would have to sacrifice the shield slot which is in my opinion too valuable for defences. But that's up to you. For that same reason the Volatile Dead destroys up to 1 additional corpse helmet enchant is not a damage upgrade.

CoC Cyclone/BF: https://pastebin.com/3y4bG7Tw

Leveling guide:
Spoiler

This are tips Im testing while leveling.

I started with this build and feel pretty strong, early lvls included. I always changed to CoC very soon in the past so Im lvl 43 and can CoC perfectly without the ascendancy.

Follow this tree below untill COC (38) then swap to main tree

POB https://pastebin.com/ftvtnWNc

Basically I have taken life, crit and power charges as fast as possible, skipping the rest. Double curse is a must for now.

Gear is fully based on crit to allow the build to work at these levels.

My gear:




Don't forget to blasphemy warlords mark and assassins mark after your assassin ascendancy you can drop assassins mark entirely
The idea is to be able to play the build from the beginning without having to invest in it now and then dont need many respect points.

I tested it with the sindicante at this levels and is very viable, you can start CoCing at 38 for sure if you want.

Until this level I took two claws with:

Frost Blades
Ancestral call
Onslaught/Faster Attack/Multistrike
Melee Physical Dmg
Elemental Dmg with Attacks
Added Cold Dmg



Gear:





Ranger

Vaal storm call pathfinder Read important notes! or fail the build

https://pastebin.com/iGRwhjE2

Gear:


Important notes!
Flask effect duration is mandatory mechanic for this build.
Things you NEED TO HAVE:

- 40% reduced cost of vaal skills staff or 2 daggers with 20% reduced cost of vaal skills (staff cheaper imo better aswell)


- MAX rolled soul catcher flask with 40% reduced soul gain prevention is all that matters


- Conquer's potency jewel

- Alchemist keystone and Druidic rite

- Pathfinder ascendancy

OPTIONAL = A BELT WITH at least 12% Increased effect of flask on you craft

Also optional is intuitive leap with cannot be inflicted with corrupted blood
, if you have the 2/3ex for it BUY IT you dont utilize a staunching flask in this build because you outleech NORMAL bleed but not corrupted bleed (from breach monsters as example u will die) This happends like 1/10 runs



Why all this?

QOL (quality of life) 6 Vaal storm call stacks instead of 4
LESS DURATION IS VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE VSC STRIKES FASTER WITHIN THE SECONDS ITS ACTIVE!

10/15 ex build.
