Greetings.
Thanks for the great guide.
I got a newb question if u dont mind..
If I use both souldrend and essence drain with spellslinger is it ok?
As I read dot does not stack but there are some guides that uses both skills.
Thanks..

Applying the same Chaos-DoT twice does not increase the damage, Chaos-DoTs do not stack. But applying two or more different chaos-DoTs can be a very effective way to scale your damage


What I meant in the guide by not stacking is: Hitting one enemy with 2 essense drains will deal the same damage over time as one essence drain.

Different skills "stack", ED and Soulrend can apply their DoTs simultaneously.
I try this: If I disagree, I will make a sound opposing argument. It's ok to love/hate something that I hate/love. Devs know PoE better than I do. I am the only player I represent.

Hi, brief status update as a way to bump this guide :)

I spend some time (more than I intended to) reworking the Support Gem section to be much more condensed while having actually more information. I quite like the result.

I gave SSF a try for the first time this league and I enjoy SSF Harvest a ton. My gear is op as hell thx to harvest crafting.

Suffixes on wand are not yet optimised, will probaby multi-mod this. Chest is new and still needs min-maxing but I love the frenzy+endurance-charge-generation even vs bosses.
Feel free to check out my Bane-Occultist ft. ED and self-cast Blight in my Profile (LadyVassaja). But be careful about copying my skill tree, I'm still experimenting quite a bit.

I considered writing a build guide on her but if I look at the time I took to rework only one section of this guide... It's an interesting character, since I actually went tiple-healthpool with life, es and mana-mom.

Sirus deathless, 5-way-timeless conflict and most other stuff work out quite easy by now. My remaining personal challenges are:
Deathless Uber Atziri (been a while since I tried),
Uber Elder (shaper dropped the same Uber Elder fragment 7 times, couldn't try him yet)
Fully deliriumed map (<5 delirium orbs dropped and I will probably die a lot as soon as I try)

If you have any chaos-dot-adventures in harvest, feel free to share. Until then, may your coffe always be hot and delicious, exile.

Updated and proof read the whole guide again as new league hype once again spiked my motivation :) Looking forward to curse changes and their implications for cdot casters.

Added patch notes analysis. I will be league starting with a Hex-Doom-Occultist-experiment. Looks really interesting. Feel free to share any CDoT_related league start plans :)

I was shocked that Bane had it's curse tag replaced with a hex tag. This has some dire consequences, see my 3.12-section in the main article.

Interesting tree changes, I am excited to plow through even more Orbs of Regrets than usual in trying out all the stuff.
