Bane Self Casting - Hardcore the game | ALL Content Viable

Hello guys.

I want to share my Self Cast Bane Build.

OTHER BUILDS :
Spoiler


PASTEBIN :

HOW THIS WORKS :
Spoiler

You need to aim and fire before mobs and bosses do it with you.
This is not for newbies.
You can't stop moving or hiding during fights.

Bane will apply linked curses , increasing damage for each one.
We run with Despair + Temporal Chains to increase Damage and Survivability.


PRO :
Spoiler

Good Chaos Damage.
Fast clear (not like Tornado Shot and similiar).
Good Life Pool.
You don't need to swap gems before bosses.


CONS :
Spoiler

You need to have Stone Golem always up.
No life Leech.
Life Regen build, and this won't be good for some players.


MAP MODS TO AVOID :
Spoiler

All life and mana Regen debuffs.


LIST OF UNIQUE ITEMS :

Spoiler


This is a huge DPS boost for our build plus it gives us Power Charges (we run with 4).

This armour gives us lot of damage and very good life.
It's not mandatory to have it 6L.

No need to argue why we use this. Good life and Unwavering Stance.

We use Essence Worm with Clear Mind to increase our damage, since Chaos Damage skill's haven't so much multipliers and flat adders.


GEM LINKS :
Spoiler

MOVEMENT SKILL (4L):
Spoiler
Flame Dash - Faster Casting - Arcane Surge - Less Duration
We'll use Less Duration to increase Mana Multiplier to raise Arcane Surge level.

GOLEM (3L) :
Spoiler
Summon Stone Golem - Minion Life - Minion and Totem Elemental Resistance

BLIGHT(4L) :
Spoiler
Blight - Multiple Totems Support - Spell Totem - Faster Casting

AURA (1x - Essence Worm's slot):
Spoiler

Malevolence

BANE:
Spoiler

5L
Spoiler

Bane - Controlled Destruction - Swift Affliction - Despair - Temporal Chains.

6L
Spoiler

Bane - Controlled Destruction - Swift Affliction - Despair - Temporal Chains - Efficacy.




FOCUS BUFFS :
Spoiler

Shock Enemies for 4 Seconds when you Focus.
This will add tons of damage , since Shock increase our DPS.


CURRENT EQUIP :
Spoiler




FLASKS :
Spoiler




JEWELS :
Spoiler

X2




BANDITS :
Spoiler

Kill All.


ASCENDANCY :
Spoiler

Malediction - Profane Bloom - Void Beacon - Withering Presence.


LEVELLING TIPS :
Spoiler

EQUIPMENT :
Spoiler

WEAPONS :
Spoiler

Rare Wands with good Spell Damage or Non Ailment Chaos Damage Multiplier.

HELMET :
Spoiler

"Goldrim" is best in slot.

GLOVES / BOOTS :
Spoiler

Any rare/unique that gives some life, mov speed and res.

AMULET / RINGS :
Spoiler

Any Rare Amulet / Ring (excluding Essecne Worm) with life / res and some stats.

BELT :
Spoiler

You can use a belt that gives life and res.

BODY ARMOUR :
Spoiler

Tabula Rasa. No way.


PASSIVE SKILL TREE :
Spoiler





PANTHEON :

Spoiler

MAJOR GODS :
Spoiler

Soul of Lunaris
Spoiler

You can use this God when mapping.
Phys Damage Reduction is very good for us, since we don't have so much armour.

Soul of Solaris
Spoiler

Use this God when Bossing.


MINOR GODS :
Spoiler

Soul of Ryslatha
Spoiler

Life Flasks recharge are very good when Bossing.





CONTENT :

Spoiler

LEGEND :
Spoiler

Easy - this type of content won't be so challenging for our build.
Medium - this type of content can be challenging , you can die if you won't pay attention on some mechanics.
Hard - you must have learned core mechanics to start doing this type of content.

EASY :
Spoiler

(White - Yellow - Red) Elder, Shaper, Uber Lab and Temple Boss.

MEDIUM :
Spoiler

Uber Atziri, Vaal Temple , Liches , Delve Bosses , HoGM.

HARD :
Spoiler

Uber Elder and Mastermind.



HOW TO DO

Spoiler

Since we do Chaos Damage Over Time, HoGM can be a bit tedious.
We need to swap weapons and use a different skill when we encounter CI guys.
This skill is Scorching Ray.
Those are the weapons :


Good luck!

I must say, you annoy me slightly right now....I was planning a Life Bane focus witch and you beat me to it. :P

I have a few Items that I will try and see if I can come up with a slightly better set-up.

I'm not planning on creating a new guide, but I will post my finding here so you can update yours.

EDIT: for jewel, 1 spreading rot will help greatly, 2 if you can spear the socket for a +13% chaos (Rare would be better but probably more expensive)

Hello Sir, sorry that was not my purpose. But we are here to try to be better players and to improve our builds so, why not, you can surely post here your items and ask me whatever you want.

I'm using 2 Spreading Rots Right now and the fourth Jewel will be Watcher Eye's with Bleeding immunity while Malevolence is active.

Each thing as TBD is because I'm not on my gaming PC and I don't have Path Of Building and game installed.

How do you feel about using 2 wand or wand+shield?
Using Allelopathy would give a pseudo 5 link for totem blight
and allow for heigher DPS or Tankiness

I got lucky and managed to get this wand

So we could dual wand this or add in a shield with shield charge+fortify and a better defense

What do you think?

I started with 2 Wands with Spell Damage and T1 Non-Ailment Chaos damage multiplier, but with that STAFF damage is very boosted.
Remember that you'll use 4 power charges.

If you use Allelopathy you must change your Boots, and you'll lose lot of life.

So, I don't know.

Maybe can you post a Pastebin Build where I can check the real differences?
Thanks.

I am not 100% sure if the set-up for the skills are right.
I just de-link the body to have Golem and flame dash seperated and I kept the boots empty I wasn't sure what to to link or if the boots was possible.
https://pastebin.com/p5BnudpQ
In the end is a 20K dps increase for a 375 life decrease.

Your solution is surely good for DPS output, but you decrease your life by 375 points.
375 - is too much for a Regen-Based Build.
And why do you need double Flame Dash?

I forgot to remove the second one that's all.

There is two thing I wonder

Wouldn't a Marble Amulet be better? A "perfect" marble amulet could look like
Amulet
Marble Amulet
Elder Item
Crafted: true
Prefix: {range:1}SpellDamage5
Prefix: {range:1}IncreasedLife8
Prefix: None
Suffix: {range:1}Strength9
Suffix: {range:1}ChaosNonAilmentDamageOverTimeMultiplierUber2
Suffix: {range:1}ColdResist8
LevelReq: 74
Implicits: 1
{range:1}(1.2-1.6)% of Life Regenerated per second
+55 to Strength
26% increased Spell Damage
+89 to maximum Life
+48% to Cold Resistance
+16% to Non-Ailment Chaos Damage over Time Multiplier
{crafted}You have Vaal Pact while Focussed
{crafted}10% of Damage Leeched as Life while Focussed
(Edit marble amulet and paste all that (I couldn't share it in another way)

I also wonder how we use Vaal Pact and life leech if we never hit with our skill?
