[3.13] VOC - BANE BLOOM Occultist | +SPEED HARVEST + 100% DELIRIUM + 1 BUTTON

A8 SIRUS KILL VIDEO >> https://tinyurl.com/VOCPOE

IMO - THIS BUILD IS MUCH MUCH MORE FUN TO PLAY THAN ED/CONTAGION- IF YOU ARE BORED WITH ED/CONTAGION YOU CAN EASILY TRANSITION TO THIS BUILD.


My profile is OPEN, you can contact me in game @VOC, or Discord @Jentry#5659 with any questions. I am always happy to discuss this build and try to help whenever I am available.


THIS GUIDE IS FOR A BANE / PROFANE BLOOM OCCULTIST WHO HAS MAXIMUM DESPAIR CURSE EFFECT - THE PURPOSE OF THIS BUILD IS TO SPEED FARM T14-18 MAPS FOR RITUAL LEAGUE. IT HAS HUGE FLEXIBILITY TO TRANSITION TO A TANKY CURSE SUPPORT WITH MINOR GEARING CHANGES. IT IS TRULY A TWO BUTTON BUILD, SUPER EASY TO PLAY.


This guide represents a MAJOR overhaul and update to my previous three BANE GUIDES;

GUIDE OVERVIEW
Spoiler
Cluster Jewels have VASTLY expanded the flexibility and enjoyment of this build, and this league they can all be rolled with T1 Chaos Harvest Seeds (PRIMAL MAW SEED) very cheaply and easily.

I want you to first understand that this build is VERY flexible and very attainable to begin cheaply and progress one upgrade at a time. I played this build fully through Awakener 8 Sirus in GUCCI-HOBO (Uniques ONLY) league even.



With slight changes in gear choices you can play this build as a VERY TANKY 7 curse / 3 aura support.

For this guide I will display my current gearing which is MAXIMUM Despair / Maximum Damage / Maximum Speed T16+ Harvest seed farmer.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this iteration of the build and its current playability in RITUAL. This build is FAST and SIMPLE TO PLAY, it can do EVERY SINGLE MAP MOD, so you can truly alch and blaze at any tier. Yet, it is strong enough to take down Sirus, Shaper, Elder etc (if you know the fights).


BUDGET and BUILD PROGRESSION PLANNING
Spoiler

PHASE 1: You can begin this build with the ability to speed clear all red mapping content quickly and comfortably for around 20-25 Exalted, the only draw back will be that tier 14-16 bosses will take 15-20 seconds to die to your DOT so you will need to BLIGHT THEM to kill them faster.

PHASE 2:
You can then progress up to 50 Exalted where you will gain significant speed and comfortable boss killing utility. At this level map bosses will die in 3 seconds versus 15-20 seconds. At this level you will be able to out pace most other builds who focus on speed clearing red tier maps. At this level you will be able to do ANY red tier map mods.

PHASE 3:
You can complete the build through incremental advancements and top out around 150 Exalts with very high end gear. At this level you will be able to comfortably incorporate 100% delirious mapping solo, and even though you will occasionally die you will be able to comfortably clear content such as 100% delirium canyons with 7 Harbingers without the need to reroll maps.

SKILL TREE



A NOTE ON PROFANE BLOOM
Spoiler


Profane Bloom is the MAIN clear damage of this build, it is absolutely nuts. I do 2 things with Profane Bloom that I don't see a lot of other people do. First, I skill two GLOBAL poison on hit nodes and pick up one jewel to get 30% poison on hit. This allows my profane bloom to Poison HUGE stacks of poison. This allows me to VERY QUICKLY cap and use Plague Bearer and do other occasional poison tricks. Second, I use VAAL BREACH, this allows me at every boss to pop packs on top of the boss and blow them up with BLOOM hitting and poisoning the boss with big deeps. These two tricks double my boss damage versus other occultist builds I see, it turns boss fights from 10-30 seconds to 3-10 seconds.




VIDEOS OF BUILD

Spoiler


NOTE THESE VIDEOS ARE ALL FROM THE OLD GUIDE // THE BUILD IS EVEN STRONGER IN 3.13, I WILL TRY TO UPDATE WITH SOME NEW 3.13 VIDEOS WHEN I HAVE TIME, JUST KNOW IT IS ABOUT TWICE AS STRONG NOW IN 3.13 COMPARED TO THESE OLD VIDEOS

DETAILED GEAR BREAKDOWN

STAFF (self crafted 5 Exalted)



This staff gives us +5 levels to all Chaos Skill gem with strong chaos multi while offering the utility of triggering Void Sphere frequently.

Prior to the Staff you can use Dual Wands or Wand and Shield.
(Wands are very cheap harvest crafts)


AMULET (5-10 Exalted)


This item is amazing and incredibly easy to deterministically craft with harvest crafts. You start with an iLVL 82+ Hunter Amulet. You roll for +1 Int Gems, then you just AUGMENT CHAOS, or BENCHCRAFT CHAOS and ADD+REMOVE chaos until you hit the +1 Chaos and the Chaos DOT Multi. You can then close the prefixes with a BENCHCRAFT and AUGMENT INFLUENCE MOD to hit one of four very powerful influence mods. If you hit the life regen influence mod you can use REMOVE LIFE to try again. I recommend using ATTRIBUTE CATALYSTS or RESISTANCE CATALYSTS when the amulet is WHITE to try for a strong attribute/resistance suffix in addition to the +1 to all intelligence gems on the augment/regal stage of crafting. Strength or Resists on the amulet will be very helpful for this build.

HELMET (1 Exalted)


Scales damage off %Maximum ES and % Mana in tree allows us to put Hex Master on our amulet instead of Tranquility. The optimal enchant is +2 Dash for mobility but Despair 30% effect or 40% Bane Damage enchant also work.

CHEST (7-25 Exalted0


The chest is our most critical component of this build. It gives our primary skill BANE + levels, this is the root from which all of our damage scales. for the chest you can look for + 1 to level of socketed gems, +2 to level of socketed duration gems, +2 to level of socketed aoe gems, and % Increased Damage, the ideal colors are BBBBGG (Bane in chest) or BBBGGG (Temp Chains in chest)

If your just beginning, you can start with a +3-4 version of this chest for 100 CHAOS and then upgrade to a +5-6 version of this chest later on. You can also start with a TABULA that has the right implicits.

The most critical aspect of this chest is its ON KILL RECOVERY affects. We are constantly topped up on Life, Mana, and ES between the on kill recovery of the chest and the cinderswallow flask.

EXAMPLES OF STARTER CHESTS



GLOVES (2-4 Exalted)


Its actually very easy to find dual curse gloves this league because they can drop in Maven's Invitations. Having Temporal Chains and Enfeeble as ON HIT effects from your gloves is going to allow all your HITS (Void Sphere Pulses, Profane Bloom) to apply those two defensive curses. We skill so you have virtually 100% uptime.


BOOTS (1-7 Exalted)

Endgame boots

Early boots


These new DREAMQUEST boots are amazing for us. We can bounce all over the place with them super far and super fast. They are also very cheap and easy to craft in harvests.

BELT (1-5 Ex)

Endgame


Early


Our Endgame Belt gives us Freeze Immunity in combination with some Jewel Implicit easily obtained from Harvest. The enchant is incredibly strong because our ascendance automatically withers.


RINGS(1-4 Ex)


These rings, in combination with my tree give every on hit skill 100% chance to poison. This is specifically so Profane Bloom and Void Sphere poison on hit keeping PLAGUE BEARER topped up at all times.


TREE JEWELS


Slotting this above witch gives 27% DOT Multiplier (More than watchers eye) at the cost of 20 Intelligence. 100% worth it.

LARGE CLUSTER JEWELS (Harvest Self Crafted, iLVL 84+ Best)


Jewels are where I STAT FIX;
- CAP ELE RESISTS at 75+ (more is not needed because we are ele-weak immune)
- CAP CHAOS RESIST at 76+
- Achieve DEX and STRENGTH needed

other than that the Large Cluster jewels should be 8 passive jewels with MISERY EVERLASTING and 2 other NOTABLES (Unholy Grace, Wicked Pall, Touch of Cruelty are my preferred 3)

Misery Everlasting gives 10% Skill Effect Duration and 25% Despair Curse Effect.

I run SIX (6) jewels with this node for an additional skill duration and curse effect.



MEDIUM CLUSTER JEWELS (Harvest Self Crafted, iLVL 84+ Best)



Again , I continue to fix Stats and Resists on these jewels, AND each one has MISERY EVERLASTING. Other notables I take advantage of are;
- EVIL EYE (Blinds everything I curse for 4 seconds)
- Dark Discourse (Hinders to activate 20% MORE damage from the TOUCH OF CRUELTY nodes on my two large jewels
- Whispers of Death - 20% damage node with 5% curse effect

SMALL JEWELS (Cobalts 50-100c per / Watcher 12-25 Exalted)




This Watchers Eye is amazing. You really only NEED the 22% DOT multi from malevolence, but this additional bleed mod is very nice.

JEWEL LINKS


CORE BANE/DESPAIR


THIS IS THE MAIN DAMAGE LINK. As you progress you can use the NON-AWAKENED supports and progress to the AWAKENED as you have funds.

MOVEMENT


AURAS


NOTE: I am running Clarity and Discipline on Blood Magic to put me at LOW-LIFE for Pain Attunement damage multiplier.

UTILITY


Plague Bearer is super fun, and helpful for killing T16 guardians, and T17,18,19 Map Bosses. You only have to skill 1-2 global poison nodes in the tree (so your profane bloom poisons) and Plague Bearer will CAP-OUT in 1-2 packs. I generally just save it until the boss to pump out an additional 1.2 million "TRUE DAMAGE." Super-Super-Useful for 1 Gem and 2 Passives.

VOID SPEHERE is the best new gem that I have incorporated in 3.13. It triggers and applies on hit effects (Temp Chains, Enfeeble, Poison, Hinder) as well as damaging and vacuuming the mobs. It is Great !


CONVENIENCE / LAZY-VOC CWD


I seriously run this 100% of the time. This allows me to play super super lazy while watching tv, responding to trades, etc... If I die ... who cares... I just pop back into the map at the same place. I have run 1,000 + T16, 17, 18, 19 maps... I have probably failed 10... so I don't give a shit if I waste a portal here and there.

I turn this off when I fight HARVEST T4 Bosses, Cortex Bosses, and other high tier bosses... I have failed only TWO(2) high tier bosses out of maybe 1000, both because I tried them in Delirium T16+ maps which is not even necessary... just me being dumb.

Nice build VOC

Is that solo build or could work with curse bot/aura bot? AFAIK chaos spells aren't scaling that good with supports.

(патч 3.14 и далее)
This is designed as a solo farming build for RITUAL league to speed farm MASTERS, HARVESTS, INVITATIONS, and SIRUS.

anyway to have more life or more defensive because in video i see 3k life is very low
Hi, im pretty much done with this league and have 150+ex to spend. I seriously cant find any chest that fits. If I find a chest with 3G3B you say instead Profane Bloom we have to put Temp Chains into it, thats right?

Is there any difference for the skill tree or rest of this build?
ya, temp chains works fine, you can also recolor the chest on the bench with vaal orbs and chroms
