[3.13] CieOnDancer's Bane Occultist - RITUAL READY! Grind T16 maps on 1-2ex budget!

FIXED BUILD FOR 3.13!


Hi! I come up with my variation of Bane Occultist build. What's so special about it you ask? Well.. you can clear your atlas with 1-2 exalted budget - with pretty good clear speed. Before you start to read the rest of post: Build was invented to be cheap and clear fast, I will not upgrade it with fancy uniques and stuff, because it's only to fast farm currency at start of league.

3.13 Ritual ready! Changed skill tree a lot!


PoB (read NOTES!!!): https://pastebin.com/92GXLjdz

Notes from PoB:

How to play build:
On maps just Dash and cast Bane and Steelskin.
When you encounter red tier map boss or endgame boss place Wither Totems and use Essence Drain on them.
Simple as that.


Prices of core items at THIS moment:
6L Cane of Unravelling = 15 chaos
Tabula Rasa +2 Duration Gems = 10 chaos
Crown of Inward 40%inc bane dmg = 70c (not necessary)
Windshriek = 40c (it is just for bigger AoE so you can go rare boots with life+res, we don;t benefit from +1 curse at all because we use only 2)
Bisco Leash = 5c (for rampage, if u die a lot you can go rare belt with life+res)
Witchfire Brew = 1c
Bane 21/23 = 25c
Empower lvl 3 = 20c (not necessary, you can just level it by urself slowly)
Medium Cluster jewel with Eldritch Inspiration and Exposure Therapy = 20c
Some random rare items with life and res = 20c

In short: if you want to gear and damage as I have here you need to pay ~2ex
if you want to do less damage but it;s not like A LOT less damage, you need to pay ~1ex

With 2ex setup you can easy do all conquerors, guardians, sirus AL7 (didnt try A8)



For leveling use standard leveling items:
Goldrim helmet, Wanderlust shoes, Praxis ring or Heup or whatever you need, some belt with life, 2x lifesprig or some wand with + chaos gems, doedre gloves (those one with 50% spell dmg), tabula with +2 duration gems

You can just use chaos skills from the start, grab blight or you can just go freezing pulse. You can use contagion with essence drain. When you will be able to equip bane just do it and add to it correct gems.

Some note for people who want to get this build further:
In my honest opinion it's not worth to invest big currency in this build. Comparing to other meta builds it will be worse. For example FireBV with 100ex invest will be much better than Bane Occultist.

Upgrades for people who want to do it anyway:
1. Swap Tabula for Shadowstich with +2 duration and +2 curse gems (its like 25ex i think)
2. Craft or buy amulet with +1 intelligence gems, +1 chaos gems, inc chaos damage over time, malevolence mana reduced
3. Elder jewel with inc malevolance damage
4. Empower lvl4 and Enlighten lvl4
5. Essence drain 21/23, Awakened support gems (those which are possible)
6. Buy or craft Staff with +3 chaos gems, chaos damage over time, spell damage, chaos damage(with good rolls it almost doubles your damage)
7. Get Abyssal belt with good rolls (inc life, inc dmg) and put abyss jewel with life and stuff in it

There is something more you can do for sure, but tbh I'm not really intrested to getting this build over 2ex budget. I've spent 7ex at moment and it does same content as 2ex budget, just little faster.



PROS:
- can do endgame bosses (conquerors, guardians, Sirus AL6-7)
- can do all map mods
- very fast map clear
- 1-2ex for all gear


CONS:
- defence mechanic = dodge
- can be oneshoted
- can't do atziri because of curse reflect (or use atziri mirror if ur rich)


Annointment, Bandits, Pantheon:
Spoiler
Corruption, Kill bandits, Brine King and Gruthkul


Ascendancies:
Spoiler
1. Profane Bloom (core mechanic to our build - pooping)
2. Malediction (we're starting to using more curses)
3. Void Beacon (some damage)
4. Withering Presence (great damage boost for endgame content)



Links:
Spoiler
Chest 6L: Bane - Despair - Controlled Destruction - Efficacy - Enfeeble Swift Afflication (or link Empower lvl 4 if ur richboi)

Staff 5L: Essence Drain - Controlled Destruction - Efficacy - Void Manipulation - Swift Affliction (optional in 6L put Empower lvl 4

Gloves: Malevolence + Vitality

Helmet 4L: Wither - Faster Casting - Spell Totem - Multiple Totems

Boots 4L: Dash - Second Wind - Arcane Surge - Steelskin

you can also use Vaal Grace too to be speed boi


Leveling:
Spoiler
On early levels (Act 1) use Blight and Contagion. On Act 3 grab Bane and start using it with support gems above.
Buy all needed gems from Siosa in Act 3 and enjoy easy gameplay.

As leveling items you should use standard ones; wanderlust shoes, tabula, goldrim, etc. If you find wand/staff with Damage over Time mod it will increase ur damage pretty well.

Acquiring items order: As league starts I suggest you to farm Bloody Aqueduct for Humility card drop (early Tabula Rasa). First item we want to get is Cane of Unravelling, our main damage source. After this you should get Tabula Rasa with +2 socketed duration gems to boost Bane. Next one is Crown of Inward which gives us a lot of damage. And at last get Windshriek boots for great AoE boost and Bisco belt for Rampage and quantity of items boost.


Leveling Skill Trees:
Spoiler

work in progress (I show how to add passives in my guide video)


You can also check it on my profile: WEEKY_CHANKER

Boring mechanics of build:
Spoiler
On low tier maps you just dash and spam Bane, everything should die in 1-2s including bosses. On higher tier to keep nice survivability you should use Steelskin, also using it with Dash will give you arcane surge. Use Essence Drain on bosses for massive damage also remember to use wither totems and bane (remember it doesnt stack).Keep up flasks for greater dodge chance and extra damage.


It's my first build so i really don't know what to add. For leveling you can check thi3n's Bane Occultist build, I used it before I created my version of build. Purpose of build was to make currency farmer with budget gear but It exceeded my expectations.

Here is clear speed of build and little showcase (3.11) (old):

Upgrading is not the purpose of this build but since few people ask for it, I will add PoB with turbo expensive endgame version. I probably won't test it since I don't play a lot this league but in PoB it looks pretty nice so far.

hmm just one question, does not just gives more damage linking bane with more curses than regular support gems? Bane tooltip says 47% more per curse and i guess if u push bane lvl even more with staff or corrupts it will be even more?

Dobra nazwa postaci :D
Switched over to this build this morning (my occultist I was leveling was not as fun as I had wished).
Really liking the build, even though I only had enough regrets to partially respec for now :)

Quick question, opinion on ascendancy order?
I only have Profane Bloom currently and will finish Acts 9 & 10 tonight and do my next labs.

DoT and chaos damage are more valuable ones than raw "increased damage" for DoT builds. PoB show greater numbers with actual gems anyway. Also 3 additional curses in gloves gives you additional power to weak monsters with no sacrificing damage at all!

Great to hear you enjoy it. You picked first Ascendancy right! The second one is Void Beacon, then Malediction and at last Withering Presence for great damage boost!

Oh thanks for your answer, Im thinking about rerolling my soulrend ocultist to bane cursebot so i can support my farming party and i was wondering if linking more curses and an empower on a skin of the loyal would improve the dmge enough compared with your settup but im bad at POB

Also i dont know how crit works with dots, my soulred build runs assa mark but i dont know how it scales with dots, do you know something about crit scaling with dots?
