[3.11] VOC - BANE BLOOM - 325% Despair - Occultist (Updated for Harvest)

Hi there
I played one day a Chaos Occultist - Bane/ED/Blight-Soulrend, and I have to say, this build is by far more fun to play !

However, I encountered multiple time, a big problem with Bane + 5 curses :

Each time I use Bane, the 5 curses are applies. I don't remember seeing a case where the 5 curses didn't apply.
BUT, sometimes, Bane itself don't apply : the monster just don't loose HP, even when the whole visual effect was showed.

I first thought : well, the 4 first curses applies from gloves first (like the visual effect seems indicate), then Despair, then Bane. So if I'm stun between the time of the curses and Bane trigger, Bane don't apply. Would make sens...
But sometimes, even without any stun, Bane decide to not trigger... Maybe because I use another skill too fast ?

This lead to dangerous situation where enemies just don't die.

Any idea ?

first thank you for the hint with atziri's + belt for lowlife
need a bit of currency to try it out but it sounds great.

something else about the annointing
you pick up Hunter's Gambit which gives you something around 270k DoT DPS with your posted PoB. What about the notable Corruption? yes it gives only about 180k DoT DPS but we increase the effect of wither for 20% or takes the withering to much time until it could really shine?

New wand finished , takes BANE dps from 6 Mil almost up to 7 Mil





I noticed you have 15 stacks of withered applied. Where do those come from? I know our ascendancy applies withered every second, so is this measuring the DPS of fighting a boss after 15 seconds to get all stacks applied, or do you run wither totems in the build and forgot to list them.

Thanks!

Edit: Never mind I saw the previous post addressing this.

with the updated PoB you're running normal LL with the new upgradet harbinger belt.

how is the upgrade? is the buff just stronger or what are the benefits?

The updated POB still has the cowards legacy.

On my live profile I am experimenting with a lot of different things.

The torrent belt is very interesting if you can force low life by running one aura on blood magic.

It makes the build even more squishy... but it takes movement speed from 176 to 264 which is almost too fast ...

But it is fun for bursting seeds !

Feel free to follow my experiments on my live profile, but know that I am just doing stuff on a whim and the core guide above is what I really recommend for consistency.

Experimenting with


It is effectively 80% uptime of 20% MORE movement speed.

Very handy for seed farming

If you don't need a blink/leap withering step is a great movement skill late game, it cycles elusive with our elusive on kill and it gives 7 insta stacks of wither every 1.4 seconds.

New farms are so insane with this build, you can run 19 plots easy and farm them every 3-6 maps
