[3.6 HC] Immortal Support with 3 million DPS?! Elemental Damage Heals Party?! 5 Curses?!
Work in progress!!!
This build might sound too good to be true but it works like a charm! This is the most broken, most unbalanced, most complicated and most fun to play build I have ever made out of my 200+ builds.
Two minutes of Gluttony of Elements combined with 10 seconds of Immortal Call, 8000 ES Regen and 75% chaos resistances will make you immortal.
PATH OF BUILDING
+ Elemental Damage Heals Party
+ 10 Seconds Immortal Call
+ 3x Duration on EVERYTHING
+ Righteous Fire heals us for 9000 ES / Second
+ 5 Curses with 79%+ Curse Effect
+ 3 Million Vaal RF DPS
+ Hybrid with 9000 combined Life / Energy shield
+ Immune to Elemental Ailments
+ Taste of Hate reduces Physical Damage taken by 40%
+ Build does not use elemental resists on gear!
+ Room for Rarity on Gear
+ Easy capped Chaos Resistance
+ 70% Block Chance
- Needs 140 souls or 16 Souls with Soul Ripper to get started
- Expensive ( Bloodstained Fossil + Blood of Corruption )
- Can't do endgame bosses like Atziri / Shaper
Required Items ( I managed to rip my character in delve and deleted him so no items to link haha ):
Curse yourself with Temporal Chains
ANY 2h Staff with the bloodstained fossil mod 40% reduced soul cost, more on this later on in the guide
80% Reduced Soul Cost together with the bloodstained fossil mod
Don't lose action speed from Temporal Chains
Blood of Corruption
Gluttony of Elements ( Vaal skill that makes Elemental Damage heal instead of dealing damage )
Helmet with Temporal Chains curse effect
Increases duration on everything even more
20%+ Quality for Curse Effect
How does the build work?!
The core idea of this build is to scale two of the most fun and powerful mechanics, Vaal Righteous Fire and Gluttony of Elements, via Shackles of the Wretched self curse Temporal Chains. And by using Kaom's Roots to bypass the slowing effect and stacking curse effect:
Passive Tree and Occultist: 65%
Curse on Hit Quality: 10%
Helmet Enchant: 30%
Conquerer's Potency: 4%
Total: 109% Curse Effect
Temporal Chains gives us 40% slower action speed but its 40% less effective against players which reduces it to 24% ( 16 difference, remember this )
40% * 2.09 ( 109% effect ) = 83.6% curse effect
83.6% Curse Effect - 16% because it's on a player = 67.6% Slower Action Speed
67.6% Slower Action speed means our buffs last close to 3 times longer than normal ( 75% would be 4 times )
Vaal Righteous Fire = 13.2 seconds duration * 3 = 39.6 seconds
Gluttony of Elements = 9.5 seconds duration * 3 = 28.5 seconds
Immortal Call = 3.57 seconds duration * 3 = 10.71 seconds
BUT Gluttony of Elements got nerfed: Blood of Corruption's Gluttony of Elements skill now prevents those affected by the aura from gaining Vaal souls. This affects all versions of the item.
That's where the staff comes into play!
It gives us 40% reduced soul cost of vaal skills which stacks with Soul Catcher's reduced soul cost.
Soul Catcher has 25% reduced soul cost but we have 47% increased flask effect which means it gives us 36.75% reduced soul cost
40% from the staff + 36.75% from the flask = 76.75%
Gluttony of Elements costs 100 souls - 76.75% = 24 Soul Cost ( rounds down )
WHICH MEANS we have 4 charges on Gluttony of Elements once we pop the flask at 100 charges: 28.5 seconds * 4 = 114 seconds of Gluttony of Elements and 39.6 seconds * 4 = 158.4 seconds of Vaal RF before we have to get 100 souls again!
With a decent party you can easily clear any map in two minutes after you get your first 140 charges ( 40 for Vaal RF and 100 for Gluttony of Elements ).
When your last Gluttony of Elements runs out you still have 44.4 seconds of Vaal RF to get your 140 souls back!
How to get this 40% reduced soul cost mod on a staff?!
1. Buy any i84+ staff with block chance
2. Buy an Prime Alchemical or Chaotic Resonator
3. Put the following fossils in it and use it on the staff:
Bloodstained Fossil ( 40% Reduced Soul Cost )
Prismatic Fossil ( Elemental Damage )
Aetheric ( More Spell rolls - Less Attack rolls )
Sanctified Fossil ( Higher Rolls )
How to play?:
1. Switch to Aurumvorax + Shield
2. Help party by cursing every pack with bane and blade vortex curse on hit until your Gluttony of Elements and Vaal Righteous Fire are full
3. Switch back to your staff
4. Cast Gluttony of Elements and Vaal Righteous Fire
5. Turn normal Righteous Fire on
6. Recast Gluttony of Elements when it has 1-2 seconds left
7. Turn normal Righteous Fire off when the last Gluttony of Elements runs out
Keep Blade Vortex up at all times
Stay next to party members
Don't forget to turn off Righteous Fire
and don't forget to turn off Righteous Fire
Do Not Get Elemental Resistance On Gear!
1. We use weapon switch with Aurumvorax and an high Elemental Resistance shield while getting souls for Gluttony of Elements.
2. We switch back to our staff when on full soul charges and enjoy 5x 40 seconds Gluttony of Elements until we have to switch back again.
3. We need chaos resistances on gear as chaos damage is the only thing that could kill us
4. Elemental damage HEALS use so we need low elemental resistances!

wasnt gluttony 'fixed' so it gives curse immunity while active to avoid temp chains shenanigans?

Yes, it's addressed in the guide.
To counter the nerf we use 75% reduced vaal soul cost to get 4 charges of Gluttony and combined with the 3 times duration we get from self-curse temporal chains we have 2 minutes of gluttony before we have to get souls again.

Would you mind showing us a short video with gameplay? I'd like to see how smooth this goes with the gluttony of elements nerf.
Generally speaking builds with a video get much more attention then those without one.
Edit: Also would like to know how fast this build is as any support build that lacks behind the others kind of isn't that usefull
