[PoE 3.6 Occultist]Konsta's 3-curse Bane ED CI Build

This build for patch 3.6. The build is utilizing bane as clearing/damage skill and essence drain to boost the damage for bosses. In addition to solid damage, bane offers very nice defensive boost as it applies linked curses.

Pros & Cons:
+ Cheap, very well suited for league start

+ Very defensive playstyle possible as spamming is not necessary
+ Huge curse effectiveness with TC and Enfeeble and 10k ES makes the build really tanky
- Average clear speed due to mediocre movement speed

[PoE 3.6 Occultist]Tanel's CO Bane + Death's Oath Build

Added Poe gems and Items into the thread as a bonus to my PoB link!
Added a quick gameplay video from early DELVE without DO in SSF

Pros & Cons:
+ Very nice and safe clearspeed thanks to Bane not costing any real mana so you can SPAM this.
+ Thanks to the LARGE AOE you are gonna clear the entire screen in a few clicks, everything that lives the initial hit will melt a few seconds later or get destroyed thanks to Profane Bloom.
+ Death´s Oath while not mandatory is a really nice safe cushion and more dot damage with all other skills combined.
+ Very easy to play with, very easy to gear (All rares totally fine)
- Porcupines, god I hate them.

For sure you can opt for Withering Presence. Feel free to try them out, always can unspec if you don´t like it!

Soul of Arkaali with the second Pantheon addon that gives us a huge 50% ES Recovery rate if we stopped taking damage recently!

Soul of Gruthkul - A bit of Physical Damage Reduction
Soul of Garukhan - Nice movement speed from the second Pantheon addon and small chance to evade attacks if we´ve taken a savage hit recently.

[PoE 3.6 Occultist]Tai's Vixen-Bane | From league Build

3.6 Update:
Defeated Atziri, completed most yellow maps. Made some notes regarding this.
Added auras and some extra notes around the place.

Bane has a much larger AoE, but doesn't spread like contagion does which means you're sometimes left with a few mobs left alive if you don't cover the whole pack with your first cast. This isn't too much of an issue due to the cast speed of Bane, as well as the addition of Profane Bloom from Occultist.

Pros & Cons:
+ Great AoE without Inc AoE or heavy investment
+ Easy and fast application of multiple curses without reserving mana
+ Solid clearing Dps
+ Solid league starter
- Sometimes have stragglers left of packs if not aimed well
- Boss damage isn't amazing
- Damage isn't instantaneous, and rares especially stick around for a few seconds.

Gems Skills:
Bane > Efficacy > Controlled Destruction > Void Manipulation > Curse > Swift Afliction
Despair > Enfeeble > Temporal Chains > Poacher's Mark > Warlord's Mark
Discipline > Malevolence > Clarity > Enlighten
Wither > Spell Totem > Multiple Totems
Flame Dash > Faster Casting > Arcane Surge [lvl 5]
Immortal Call [lvl 3] > Cast with Damage Taken [lvl 1] > Increased Duration > Desecrate [lvl 7]

Kill All.

1.Profane Bloom
2.Wicked Ward and Vile Bastion
4.Void Beacon and Withering Presence

Lunaris as major for the MS and damage reduction 
Ralakesh as the minor for the reduction in bleed and eventually maim immunity.
