[Ultimatum] PoE 3.14 Occultist Vortex Safe Witch Starter Build

Quick Jump

Pros & Cons

  • + One of the safest builds in the game.
  • + Can do nearly all content and easily farm Sirus
  • + Damage Over Time cannot be reflected, so you can do Reflect maps by Vortexing at your feet and pulling mobs into the DoT or with Wintertide Brand
  • + Can reach 11-12k ES, 1-2 million DPS on Vortex alone, and a dizzying array of defensive layers
  • - Can't do all map mods easily. No regen is not possible, and Ele reflect is doable but slow.
  • - Not a god-tier clearing build (though you can still go fast if you get good with Cold Snap placement)
  • - Does not have truly infinite scaling like some attack builds
  • - Can't clear Hall of Grandmasters


Skill Tree


Normal Lab - If your survivability is good and you want damage to push faster, you can take Void Beacon. If you're a little squishier, Vile Bastion gives you a ton of survivability.

Cruel Lab - Take what you didn't take in Normal Lab, Void Beacon or Vile Bastion.

Merc Lab - Take Frigid Wake. Tons of utility and our Freeze/Chill immunity. Hugely beneficial ascendancy.

Uber Lab - take Profane Bloom. The explosions help with damage, but applying curses to hexproof enemies is the real benefit here.


Major: Solaris is the go-to here, as trash mobs don't pose a threat, and will help more against high health bosses. Lunaris is an option for clear speed.

Minor: Garukhan and Gruthkul are great for smoothing of incoming damage. Abberath is helpful, as burning ground is a problem for ES. Shakari is an option for low-life builds that are concerned about Chaos damage.

leveling Setup

Leveling With No gear

If you are new to Path of Exile and/or starting with thousands of other players in a new league, you're starting with no items and no currency. Luckily for you, the build requires nothing to get going and is absurdly cheap even if you're switching to CI. Don't worry about unique items! My biggest recommendation is simply to save as much currency as possible for future crafting. Just move down a couple of sections and start with the Full Leveling Guide. Take your time and enjoy!

Leveling Item with trade link

There are a few unique items that will allow you to truly zoom through the leveling process. If you want to twink your character and get to maps ASAP, slap these bad boys on and crush everything.
