Path of Exile 3.6 Synthesis Bane Occultist Build Guide - Skills 

POE 3.6 Bane Occultist Build Skills - Bane, Despair, Efficacy, Controlled Destruction, Swift Affliction & Void Manipulation

Bane is a Path of Exile 3.6 skill for triggering and damage bonus. POE Bane is damage over time skill that applies a debuff and linked curses to enemies in an area. The debuff brings more damage and makes the skill last longer for each applied curse. It also has a curse tag with certain modifiers, it can benefit from the modifier sticker skill effect duration and gains additional duration for each curse applied. Area damage modifiers did not apply to the Bane skill as it is excellent for killing bosses and also comes with enough base damage to kill most monsters within a single cast. Even though the bane does gain more damage for per curse, you need to invest more to raise the curse limit which isn't very feasible especially when there are only three curse skill, you can choose to have synergy on the top of that, the damage scaling with each curse isn't that great compared to additional damage support gems in Path of Exile, but you can use a Despair to reduce enemy case resistance and increases the amount of damage.


Expect for the Bane, the primary skill damage skills also have Despair, Efficacy, Controlled Destruction, Swift Affliction, and Void Manipulation. Using solar and an essence drains link to Efficacy and Socket in a weapon with the mod trigger socketed spell.

Path of Exile 3.6 Synthesis Bane Occultist Build Guide - Items

When it comes to the POE items for the Bane Occultist Build, there are 3 uniques recommended: Apep's Supremacy, The Beast Fur Shawl and Bated Breath.


Apep's Supremacy comes with many functions for properties like maximum resistances, it makes you take no damage while bleeding if you are CI, but it is a fairly expensive shield, so it is expected used in endgame setup. The Beast Fur Shawl can give you a large bonus to energy shield recovery rate which is a multiplicative modifier that affects both energy shield regeneration and recharge rate. Bated Breath is a cheap and common unique item, which gives increased energy shield recharge rate which is additional of all other similar modes and also very good in endgame setups. Path of Exile Crafting Simulator is live here now to help you to craft a better Path of Exile Items
