Passive Skill Tree, PoB, and Gem Links

You can find an optimized Path of Building here. Every build I release will use the community fork of Path of Building. You can find PoB’s Fork, by LocalIdentity, here.

If you are not comfortable with Path of Building, PoePlanner’s website offers you a non-PoB alternative to import the code from the above link. it is highly recommended you install Path of Building to follow builds most optimally.

Progression Advice

This build scales pretty well off of everything, which means levels are equally as important as gear is. Therefore, you will feel significantly weaker while you’re progressing through the game, but since Dark Pact Dark Pact does relatively well at lower levels, that shouldn’t be an issue.

Here’s a level 80 Path of Building and a “PoePlanner“https://poeplanner.com/ABYAAMEAFiUAAF0c3IPzCPRR-48avOq2-o5kwGbDCSL01YG5k_IdoS8qEwSzEMyuEprgW6CVLkWdf8ZmnuNijEYRLTLRfA6vbIVt6-6TJ0PIHRQWb08EzRaiAPDVbAv1-h8YsTbGrvAfPC0LYRVQj_rr9RbzBx63OPfBbRmDX6Py42rYJL6KNsVOrhGW-tIk2I9GpwhTUiY8WOWnVSu2hTJaK3yD96ZJUWjyLJxFRy-d-JNqQwOacWJ1KismOhYEUWhahoIAAAAAAA== to give you an idea of how your tree should look like whenever you’re at about that level. This should carry you to the stages where you can afford some nice item upgrades!

Gem Links

Dark Pact Dark Pact – Main Link (6-Link)

As you notice, this build runs an Awakened Gem. While they’re definitely a nice thing to have, they’re not required whatsoever and you’ll do completely fine with regular versions.

  2. Multiple Totems Support Multiple Totems Support
  3. Awakened Void Manipulation Support Awakened Void Manipulation Support
  4. Increased Critical Strikes Support Increased Critical Strikes Support
  5. Increased Critical Damage Support Increased Critical Damage Support
  6. Awakened Added Chaos Damage Support Awakened Added Chaos Damage Support


Even though you’re using MoM, Determination nowadays is just too good to pass up on. Because you don’t want to reserve more than that, you want to press a Zealotry button by linking it to Divine Blessing.

  1. Determination Determination
  2. Enlighten Support Enlighten Support (3 or 4)
  1. Zealotry Zealotry
  2. Divine Blessing Support Divine Blessing Support

Wherever you socket these last two auras, you can socket the Stone Golem & Vaal Righteous Fire for some extra buffs.

  1. ##item:Vaal-Righteous-Fire###
  2. Summon Stone Golem Summon Stone Golem

Power Charge Generation

The skill of choice for you to generate Power Charges is Storm Brand Storm Brand. Storm Brand has a really high activation rate, which means it crits fairly often and is very suitable for Power Charge On Critical Support Power Charge On Critical Support. If you have a trigger wand, this goes in your wand so it automatically gets cast and you don’t have to worry about it which is nice, but not mandatory.

  1. Storm Brand Storm Brand
  2. Power Charge On Critical Support Power Charge On Critical Support
  3. Culling Strike Support Culling Strike Support


Wither makes your enemies take increased % Chaos Damage. Since this is a very big damage amplification, and you have plenty of time of casting it yourself, you’re linking it to Cast while Channeling – Enfeeble to apply a curse on monsters. You should be casting this whenever monsters don’t die to the first tick of your Dark Pact totems. However, if you want to get more damage and don’t have your rings yet, you can swap Enfeeble to Despair.

  1. Wither Wither
  2. Enfeeble Enfeeble
  3. Cast while Channelling Support Cast while Channelling Support
  4. Infused Channelling Support Infused Channelling Support


Flame Dash Flame Dash is the preferred movement skill just because of the absurd amount of Cast Speed you’re picking up. This makes it feel almost instant which is really nice! You’re linking it to the Arcane Surge buff, which is to be kept up as much as possible!

  1. Flame Dash Flame Dash
  2. Arcane Surge Support Arcane Surge Support (level 6)
