[EHLD] Storm Burst Occultist

Finally made something energy shield based. It is very similar to the caster of Markusz he played earlier. The major differencies I guess are that this character is a bit more on the offensive side skill tree -wise, I'm using a shield from incursion and my jewellery is a notch more expensive and powerful. Storm Burst was chosen because it is one of the more powerful skills left in the unbanned pool. The skill is super clunky to use but it deals damage because it deals multiple hits in a single action just like all the other viable skills at the moment. The utility gem setups aren't exactly final as I haven't dueled enough people yet. It looks like using a self cast curse would be ideal.

Quick summary:
- The build deals a lot of chaos and lightning damage mostly to melee/medium range
- The build is very close to immortality if the user decides to just run away from a fight (especially in big maps)
- Immune to a lot of things (shock, ignite, bleed, temporal chains, stuns)
- 8851 ES with Incandescent Heart and extremely fast energy shield recharge start mostly because of Apep's Supremacy

Other misc stuff:
- Mana is a problem that needs to be solved, without Vertex and Pure Talent jewel I wouldn't be able to use lightning warp and the regen is balanced around me being able to almost permacast storm/warp
- Elemental Focus and Slower Projectiles are gems that have to be swapped between enemies (slower proj is more meleeish but deals way more damage, ele focus gives the build a lot of range but less damage
- Storm Call is there mostly for tickling enemies hiding behind corners
- Smoke mine is op af
- Heartbreaker is used vs life based chars, Doryani is used against energy shield based chars, Balefire is used against blockers
- The build is very resist starved and almost all of the jewels used have a lot of resists in them (purity of elements is another choice but that option has even more problems)
- Flasks are just stibnites with curse and chill immunities and maybe burn removal mana pots if required

Stormburst is one of the strongest dmg skill but nobody try yet.

Doesn't apep shield give you bleed immunity, so why the staunching flask?

It does indeed. There is no reason to use a staunching flask. I sort of forgot this line of text from the item.
