POE 3.4 Witch Occultist Herald of Agony Build - League Starter & High Move-Speed

PoeCurrencyBuy Date: Sep/22/18 08:48:12 Views: 585

"Throw off the chains of fear and embrace that which was forbidden."

Occultists are suited for Witches with a focus on chaos damage or curses. Occultists are well-served by builds that rely on & maximize energy shield.

This isn't a super expensive build by nature.The build relies primarily on gem and tree interactions so you don't strictly need any specific gear.

POE_Delve_Witch_Occultist_Herald_of_Agony_Build_-_League_Starter_&_High_Move-Speed

 

Pros & Cons

Pros

+ 180%+ peak increased move speed.
+ Super curses. Mobs barely dent you with the super enfeeble and temporal chains.
+ 7k+ life.
+ Easy to maintain fortify.
+ Strong recovery via LGoH.
+ Agony Crawer does all the work.
+ Can handle EVERY map mod in the game
+ Good clear speed via minion augmented profane bloom explosions. Very fast in delves.
+ Good league starter. The base gear is dirt cheap and no six links are required.

Cons

- Something not for all players

 

Skill Tree

Ascendancy

Ascendancy

Profane Bloom, Malediction, Void Beacon (In that order. Don't worry about Uber Lab, it doesn't matter much).

Bandits

Kill All or help Alira for resists.

Pantheon

Crab dude and whatever minor node you like.

Passive Tree

Skill Tree

 

Gems Setup

Herald of Agony + Pierce + Minion Damage + Vile Toxins + Damage on Full Life or Minion Speed

Enfeeble + Blasphemy

Static Strike + Ancestral Call + Chain + Fortify (+ Poison)

Molten Strike + Multistrike + Greater Multiple Projectiles (+ Poison) + Withering Touch + Ancestral Call (if you can get it)

Convocation

Shield Charge + Faster Attacks (+ Fortify + Poison)

NOTE: You could also fit in desecrate/spirit offering instead of fortify/poison on shield charge, but I don't think it's worth it.

NOTE: for Static and Molten Strike, if you don't use Mortem Morsu you need to add poison support through Elder pseudo 5 links.

 

Gear

Weapon

Fright Claw: This gives you chance to poison without elder poison supports so you can run molten strike and static strike on regular four links.

Shield

War Buckler: Whatever rare shield gives you the life and res you need.

Helmet

Lacquered Helmet: This lets you get a 5 link for your herald of agony. Alternatively, you could use a regular rare helm and the embalmer gloves.

Belt

Leather Belt: Poacher's mark gives you mana sustain and your crawler better accuracy and frenzy charges. Alternatively, you could get poacher's mark in that new curse on hit ring. It's pretty cheap.

Gloves

Silk Gloves: Temp chains on hit is good.

For all other items, just use rares that give you high life and resists. Get four links in the boots/helm/gloves and use them for molten strike, static strike, and herald of agony. Put shield charge in your shield(you don't need a 4L on it) and blasphemy enfeeble + convocation in your weapon.

This sort of set up should easily work up through yellow tier maps with any combination of mods. You may need to get gear upgrades to handle red maps.

 

Quick Leveling Guide

Do whatever you like until level 16. Once you hit level 16, equip herald of agony with whatever supports you can manage(pierce should be high priority as it's good for clear speed) and use incinerate with lesser poison support to build stacks(trust me it works REALLY well at that level). Switch to attacks once you have your mortem morsu and resolute technique.
On your tree, you should be working towards minion damage and resolute technique with a few life nodes.
Once you can equip mortem morsu and get resolute technique, switch to a Molten Strike + Static Strike set up.
The priorities on static strike are ancestral call and chain. Ancestral call is huge quality of life for getting it running.
The priorities on molten strike are multistrike and GMP
Once you get all your minion stuff and resolute technique on the tree, fill in the life nodes, curse effect nodes, jewel sockets. Do armour nodes last.
For Ascendancies, the order is profane bloom(highest priority, it's huge for clearing), Malediction, and Void Beacon. Uber lab doesn't really matter.
