Forum Index Witch [3.8] A CI/LL Tri-Curse Herald of Agony Occultist [Deathless Uber Elder, League Starter]

History

Hi all!

Yes, the build is still viable in 3.8, but the Necromancer is now a good alternative to Occultist. It comes down to a matter of preference; Occultist for a nice balance of offence and defence, and Necro for focusing on damage.

Concerning Cold Iron Point, it's a really, really good dagger for the build. I'm not planning to level this build this league, but if anyone wants to try using this dagger, you could use Apep's Supremacy to get faster start of ES recharge on your off-hand, and use something like Ball Lightning to apply poison.

If anyone does try this, please give me feedback, because I'm really wondering if I should remake my guide with Cold Iron Point & Apep's Supremacy.

Have a nice day! :)

Hi all,

Due to popular demand, I created a version of the build using Cold Iron Point, the new +3lvl dagger. I posted the PoB in the guide, but if you are too lazy to go check (I know, I'm like that too), here it is: https://pastebin.com/tmMnMQ3n

The only required expensive item is Apep's Supremacy, and you can easily map in low tiers without it.

I'm planning to try it out in the coming days/weeks, depending on my time and motivation. If anyone tried it out before me, please tell me how it goes! :)

Stay sane, exiles!

The issue with Cold Iron Point is that you can't apply EE by yourself (so you need like golem with Malachai) because you can't deal elemental damage with it.

Oh, you're absolutely right! The problem is, with the current version of the Cold Iron Point build, we need both ring slots, I'll need to find a way to use a Malachai's Mark instead.

Thanks a lot for pointing it out!

Hi, this build looks fantastic. I really like Rain of Arrows and wanted to try Herald of Agony for a while now and I can do both with this build!
Now I'm not really an experienced PoE player and I have difficulties trying to translate the skill tree from a 3.7 build to a 3.8 one. Especially the new positions of Gravepact and Spiritual Command gives me a headache.
Could you help me out with a 3.8 full build skill tree? I'm going for the energy shield version.
