POE 3.4 Witch Occultist Support Build - Auras & Curses HC Support, Cheap & Safe

PoeCurrencyBuy Date: Sep/08/18 03:14:07 Views: 2787

The Occultist is the smoothest ascendancy to play support. The Curses are extremely powerful and make you superb tanky. It feels really good, to be able to tank all mobs without dying at all.
In comparison to Ascendant and Guardian you loose a few Auras (Grace, Hatred, Clarity), but the curses and Malediction are compensating. 

POE 3.4 Witch Occultist Support Build

 

Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • + High defensive boost
  • + 6-8k ES affordable (& ~1.3k life)
  • + Budgetfriendly (6 curses are kinda expensive, 5 are budget)
  • + Curses offer an extremely good defensive boost and a decent damage increase for the party
  • + Good defenses vs chaos damage

Cons:

  • - No regen maps are very annoying to run
  • - You need at least lvl 90 and a 6l Victario’s to get 6 curses on Blasphemy. You can run 5 Curses way earlier.
  • - Gameplay is for some player not as smooth as Shavs support, because chaos damage bypass ES -> have to take care of your life pool very rarily
  • - Doesn’t increase the power and speed of players as much (no dmg auras)
  • - Need necessarily 3 uniques to get going (Broken Crown, Prism Guardian, Victarios Influence)
