How important is chaos resist these days?

All the info I could find online is a couple years old or more, and this game seems to change a fair bit over time, so I'm not sure if it's the same.

I found a cluster jewel with some and I'm wondering whether its worthwhile to try to make something out of it; chaos res is hard to come by, but I'm not sure how important it is to actually have; whereas its clear that elem resist is needed.

I think people used to opt out of it a long time ago, but nowadays it feels pretty prominent.

But I'm just doing lowly t13 maps & below right now.
I have seen useful chaos resistance cluster jewels being posted on reddit before, but I would personally never spend four skill points on one.

It is probably most interesting to builds using Divine Flesh, who want to reach 85% chaos resistance or more.

just a clarification: it isn't 4 skillpoints, it's 6.

clusters can only go in the outermost sockets, which all have 2 very terrible travel nodes.

so it's 2 travel, plus socket, plus 3 nodes from a small cluster.

I was assuming that the build would already use at least one large or medium cluster jewel, because most builds do, if they can afford one anyway.
