[3.6] Trickster Blight CWC SR

Hello, im Igor and i love going out of the common sense when it comes to making my builds, Im tired of seeing the same boring builds that put a skill with some supports and done, i always want to go further with my ideas using strange mechanics and interactions to make an actually viable "MEME"(out of meta)<strange>{different} build, this one may look like a simple build but i have not seen anyone doing this so... at least is something {different}.

OBS: If something is missing, not working or need better explanation let me know in the comments.

Pros

-Decent Clear Speed
-?Different?
-Can run most map mods
-Endgame Viable

Cons

-Some items can be expensive at endgame
-Positioning is key
-The core of the build can only be played at very endgame.


Leveling: Items and Skill Tree

I leveled this build using Contagion for clear and Blight single target.
at start of the league get yourself a wand from Nessa with the sockets B-B-G if possible and then use an orb of transmutation to make it magic then do the following recipe to get yourself
Magic Wand + Any Chaos Gem = +1 chaos Wand
now you are able to one tap white mobs while leveling with contagion
during act 1 you want contagion + arcane surge + void manipulation
pick up blight and keep leveling the gem in offhand while you use
explosive trap + lesser poison for single target, when you get to merveil remove lesser poison and go explosive trap + added cold + added lightning
During act 2 you should change to this setup:
Blight + Controlled Destruction + Void Manipulation
Flame Dash + Faster Casting + Arcane Surge(lvl 1)
Explosive Trap + Concentrated Effect + Elemental Focus
Once you reach Level 24 you are able to use Bane at this point you should drop the explosive trap and change to this setup:
Bane + Despair + Efficacy (this setup is able to carry you all the way to maps)
Blight + Infused Channeling + Faster Casting + Efficacy

Leveling skill tree step-by-step is inside PoB

items to look for:Cheap Moderate Expensive

-Tabula Rasa Lv.0
the best leveling item in the game for many builds.

-Lifesprig Lv.2
dual wielding this wand is good for any generic caster.

-Faminebind Lv.18
For more memes.

-Victario's Flight lv.12
speed and attributes.

-Doedre's Tenure lv.12
spell damage gloves.

-Shade of Solaris lv.30

just make sure you have a way to trigger the effect with another skill.

-Cane of Unravelling lv.62
very good endgame weapom for any chaos dot skill.

-Allelopathy lv.69
easy 5Link if you want to use Blight.

Huh, this is really interesting, I like the memes..definitely following!
Nice, I'm thinking of doing something similar

Blight/Bane..... hopefully Bane is good enough for clear while Blight mainly for single target

Wouldn't Lucidity solve the mana issue..... -3 total mana cost is pretty big for blight
Looks interesting

ty for the reply, this is actually a node that didn't existed when i originally planned the build, however i will add this answer to the Q&A ty.
Interesting build, I think your PoB link is wrong or not finished. Very interested to see where this build can go!
Also think the pob for passive tree is busted, only showing 30 odd points.

Keen to try something along these lines
