It combines chaos damage and curse skills to create a build that excels in both clear speed and single-target damage. The Pathfinder ascendancy provides excellent flask sustain and increased chaos damage, making it an ideal choice for this build. Skill Gem Setup1. Essence Drain: Use Essence Drain as your primary skill. Link it with Swift Affliction, Efficacy, Controlled Destruction, Void Manipulation, and Empower support gems for optimal damage output. 2. Contagion: Cast Contagion to spread the Essence Drain debuff to nearby enemies. Link it with Increased Area of Effect and Intensify support gems. 3. Impending Doom: This build revolves around the Impending Doom support gem. Link it with Despair, Enfeeble, and Temporal Chains curses for additional damage and utility. 4. Malevolence: Activate Malevolence aura for increased chaos damage over time. Link it with Enhance and Enlighten support gems for improved performance. 5. Flame Dash: Include Flame Dash for mobility and dodging dangerous mechanics. Link it with Second Wind and Faster Casting support gems. 6. Wither: Cast Wither to further increase chaos damage taken by enemies. Link it with Increased Duration and Multiple Totems support gems. Passive Tree Allocation: Allocate passive points that enhance chaos damage, damage over time, curse effectiveness, and life. Focus on nodes that improve chaos damage, spell damage, and chaos damage over time multiplier. Prioritize life nodes for survivability. Gear Recommendations1. Weapon: Look for a wand with increased spell damage, chaos damage over time multiplier, and increased cast speed. Seek weapons with additional chaos damage or increased area damage. 2. Body Armor: Prioritize a body armor with high maximum life, energy shield, and resistances. Look for bonuses to chaos damage, chaos damage over time multiplier, or increased area damage. Consider using a Shavronne's Wrappings if you can afford it, as it grants energy shield but removes the ability to apply non-chaos damage as chaos damage. 3. Helmet: Seek a helmet with increased maximum life, energy shield, resistances, and increased chaos damage. Look for enchantments that enhance Essence Drain or Contagion. 4. Gloves: Look for gloves with increased maximum life, energy shield, chaos damage, and spell damage. Consider gloves with bonuses to area damage or increased cast speed. 5. Boots: Prioritize boots with increased maximum life, energy shield, movement speed, and resistances. Look for additional chaos damage, chaos damage over time multiplier, or bonuses to curse effectiveness. 6. Belt: Aim for a belt with increased maximum life, energy shield, and resistances. Look for bonuses to chaos damage, chaos damage over time multiplier, or increased area damage. 7. Accessories: Focus on rings and amulets that provide increased chaos damage, cast speed, maximum life, energy shield, and resistances. Look for modifiers that enhance curse effectiveness, spell damage, or chaos damage over time multiplier. Consider adding jewels with chaos damage or increased area damage. Flask Recommendations1. Divine Life Flask: Provides instant life recovery during emergencies. 2. Basalt Flask: Grants physical damage reduction to mitigate incoming damage. 3. Quartz Flask: Grants dodge and phasing, improving survivability and mobility. 4. Silver Flask: Increases attack and cast speed for faster clearing. 5. Atziri's Promise: Provides chaos damage and life leech. Playstyle Tips1. Apply Contagion first to spread the Essence Drain debuff to nearby enemies, then cast Essence Drain on a target to start dealing damage. 2. Keep your curses active with Impending Doom support gem. The impending doom explosions triggered by casting your curses will provide additional damage and utility. 3. Use Flame Dash for mobility, but be cautious of your mana usage. 4. Keep Wither totems active to further increase chaos damage taken by enemies. 5. Maintain your flasks for consistent sustainability and survivability. ConclusionRemember to adjust your playstyle based on the situation and adapt to different map modifiers. With some PoE orbs invested, the Impending Doom Pathfinder build can become a powerful and versatile choice in Path of Exile 3.22.
