[3.16] Detonate Dead Build | Occultist | Scourge | Path of Exile 3.16

Hey guys, here is another ignite build, Detonate Dead Occultist. Ignite dd is very popular this league but mostly played as necromancer or elementalist. Occultist ignite only makes sense if you have the blackflame ring. (Enemies Ignited by you take Chaos Damage instead of Fire Damage from Ignite.)

Build Cost
- Medium Budget: 10-50 ex

Blackflame: Enemies Ignited by you take Chaos Damage instead of Fire Damage from Ignite.
This modifier causes enemies that the character ignites to take all damage over time from ignite as chaos damage instead of fire damage.

Spectres: Stoneskin Flayer and Lithomancer (Primeval Fortress areas in delve)

Animate Guardian's gear:
- Kingmaker
- Southbound
- Mask of the Stitched Demon
- Rainbowstride
- Rare body armour with "Gain #% of Maximum Life as Extra Maximum Energy Shield" mod

Glorious Vanity: Doryani to get Corrupted Soul keystone.

Leveling: Keep playing with Armageddon Brand until level 70 so you can equip a level 20 Raise Spectre gem then switch to detonate dead. Leveling gems and trees are in the video.

Maybe I'm a little confused, but Rumi's with the "cannot block" from Saffell's still works? or is it only for the flat armour? or for the block spell?
Why detonate lv1. I'm confuse
